|Recommendations of the month:
Have you ever looked at a bug or a flower and wondered what in the world it was? iNaturalist helps with that issue. Open the app and take a photo to be shown what it is. The best part is you can geo-tag the photo and help Nature Conservancy in Canada. Look for my profile to see which species I have catalogued.
Book Challenge 2017 & 2018:
Next newsletter will have an accounting of my books read from the 2017 Reading Challenge. Spoiler, I did not hit all 26. In the meantime go to my website and download your own copy of the 2018 Reading Challenge.
