G+ folks are posting some lovely photos to celebrate Earth Day. Here's mine...food from my garden. One of the consequences of climate change is increased drought and severe storms in the bread baskets of the world. Food shortages and food prices are increasing. Let's all work together to mitigate climate change! Time is running out, but it's not too late.  #earthday
Shown here: cocozelle squash, yellow scalloped squash, raga eggplants (that's why they are called "egg" plant), purple chu-chu Indian eggplants, and okra...from my July 2013 garden.

+Liz Graham-Yooll I agree! You should see my tomatoes now. They are about a foot high and already with yellow blossoms. I'm growing arid-lands adapted tomatoes from Native Seeds/Search. Nichols (heirloom) and Punta Banda (from Baja California Sonoran Desert). I think I'll go take their picture today.

I've been selling a lot of these small-scale mixed media collages (8"x8"). The curator at the gallery said he thought my "muted desert colors" was one of the appeals. So naturally I had an uncontrollable urge to get colorful. I call this Blood Moon.  Btw, the recent blood moon was very visible in our Tucson "dark skies."  (We have a bunch of astronomers around here and consequently we have special street lights that do not interfere with astronomical observation. )

Beautiful! Glad you are selling lots of work. Amazing blood moon lately. Great idea with the street lights that don't interfere with viewing it.

New work from +Shu-Ju Wang Her stories that go with the paintings are intriguing. (read the captions) I already knew about the explorer Zheng He (sounds like Jung Huh) but I love seeing his adventures illustrated in the 21st century. Oh if he could only see this painting! And yes, anthropologists have a lot to say about foods and how they travel. I've always wondered what the Italians ate before Marco Polo brought noodles back from China, and Columbus brought tomatoes back from Mexico.

I hope so! I've just started working on the 3rd one. There will be ice in it, but I'm still not sure about the specifics.

Regarding Heartbleed security issue, here are two useful sites.
http://www.cnet.com/how-to/which-sites-have-patched-the-heartbleed-bug/ AND  https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/
I put my bank domain name and my Discover credit card in the second site . Both got an A. My favorite mail order art supply house (JerrysArtarama) got an F. Uh oh.
Now I gotta go change passwords after checking the first link.
We compiled a list of the top 100 sites across the Web, and checked to see if the Heartbleed bug was patched.

For those of us who have done our time in those tin cans 30,000 feet above the land/ocean, and who have been following the mystery of Flight MH370, here's the best explanation I've seen. The link is to Wired magazine but note that this excellent commentary by  +chris goodfellow  appeared first here on G+  at  https://plus.google.com/106271056358366282907/posts/GoeVjHJaGBz

I like Chris's main thesis too - get into the head of the pilot.  From all accounts he was a dedicated man and he knew what he was doing.  He loved flying.  It was his passion.  Have seen nothing to the contrary.
