World Oceans Day June 8, 2016

DIANE'S CORNER ... Celebrate World Oceans Day

World Oceans Day is a yearly event to celebrate and honor the bodies of water that join us all. The oceans generate most of the oxygen we breathe, they regulate our climate, and they feed us.
But the best part is, we still know very little about them; less than 10% has been explored, and scientists believe over 9 million species are yet to be discovered in the deep blue depths!
So whether you go for a dip, surf, scuba-dive or join in with one of the many events organized in over 45 countries worldwide, let’s celebrate and honor our oceans, and inspire younger generations to get involved with their conservation.

US Postal Service's First and Only Delivery of "Missile Mail" (1959)

In 1959, the US Navy assisted the US Post Office Department—predecessor of today's US Postal Service—in its search for a faster form of mail transportation. The USPS tried its first and only delivery of "missile mail" when a Navy submarine fired a guided cruise missile containing 3,000 pieces of mail off the Florida coast. Twenty-two minutes later, the missile landed at a naval station in Mayport, Florida. 

St. Médardus's Day

St. Médardus, or Médard, who lived from about 470 to 560, was the bishop of Vermandois, Noyon, and Tournai in France. Because he was the patron saint of farmers and good weather, he has come to play a role in weather lore similar to that of the English St. Swithin. In Belgium, he is known as the rain saint, and there is an old folk rhyme that says, "If it rains on St. Médard's Day, it will rain for 40 days."

Haleakalā is a massive dormant shield volcano on the Hawaiian island Maui, and RJ Bridges caught it at the perfect time. “Typically, the crater valley offers no greenery,” Bridges writes. “But because Maui received an unusual amount of rainfall during spring and summer months, it brought this new color of vegetation to the scenery.”
