May 23: World Turtle Day. Sponsored by the American Tortoise Rescue association since 2000, World Turtle Day seeks to raise awareness about conservation efforts for these amazing creatures. They might not be the teenage mutant ninja variety, but take the time show your turtle power today.
Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon Like a magician extended his golden wand o'er the landscape; Twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together. -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~~ by
