Apologies for late upload and crappy photo, and the fact that I haven’t been to your streams yet. :(

So yesterday, it sure did rain. It was drizzling and sprinkling for most of the day, until 4:00 rolls around. And it’s starts downpouring. Like, the most rain you’ve ever seen in your entire life. For 2.5 hours straight. Amazon Rainforest Rain, I kid you not. That shit was Brazilian.

Meanwhile, Tori and I are already at work which is boring on a usual day, but when not one person comes into the store for that entire time — yeah, just about wanted to break my face with a candle. Farm Boy flooded and had to close, Bulk Barn sprung a leak. Alas no such luck that our store would leak, flood, or have the power go out … (Trust me, we checked.)

My mummy calls at around 5:00 to tell me that
a) The power is out
b) Our street is flooded (to the point that you could canoe down it) and therefore the police have closed either end of it, and
c) Our basement is flooded.

Power didn’t come on again until 4:30 a.m., our basement had about 4 inches of water in it, although I guess this is lucky because some of the neighbours had up to 4 feet of water.
We need entirely new carpets, which are starting to smell like sewage and dog so now my house smells like a dream,
and my Hope Chest is wrecked.

That’s what I get for wishing for rain.

The Amazon Rainforest.

The Amazon Rainforest.
Hello my friends since you know how much I love bugs and ants why not take a trip with me to a place with no insects hahah and that is to, (The Amazon Rainforest) , also known as Amazonia, is one of the world’s greatest natural resources. Because its vegetation continuously recycles carbon dioxide into oxygen, it has been described as the "Lungs of our Planet". About 20% of earth’s oxygen is produced by the Amazon rainforest. Amazonia receives about 9 feet of rain every year. Fifty percent of this returns to the atmosphere through the foliage of trees.The world’s largest tropical rainforest, Amazonia covers more than half of Brazil. The canopy of Amazonia is less studied than the ocean floor.Over 500 mammals, 175 lizards and over 300 other reptiles species, and one third of the world’s birds live in Amazonia. It is estimated that about 30 million insect types can be found here. Today the Amazon River is the most voluminous river on Earth, eleven times the volume of the Mississippi,For reference, the Amazon’s daily freshwater discharge into the Atlantic is enough to supply New York City’s freshwater needs for nine years. rapid deforestation threatens the Amazon. At current rates, 55 percent of its rain forests could be gone by 2030—a looming disaster not only for the region’s plants and animals, but for the world.do some research and do what ever you can to help save not only the Amazon Rainforest , but all rainforests, even if they are the homes of the things that bite and make you itch haha take care steve.

Over in the Jungle: A Rainforest Rhyme
Teachers and parents, here is the easiest, most entertaining way ever to teach about this important habitat. The special talent of this author is entertaining kids while the adults think it is a lesson about the rainforest. Kids will sing, clap, and count their way among monkeys that hoot, ocelots that pounce, parrots that squawk, and boas that squeeze! It will not take much to have your child joyfully hooting and squawking too. And the illustrations are painstakingly all done in polymer clay and then photographed, giving a 3-D effect. They are truly remarkable, vividly conveying the abundant energy of a rainforest, and will inspire many an art project. Plus there are several pages of extension ideas for curriculum and art projects as well as resources on the web and elsewhere.

Please note: The board book edition is 28 pages. It includes suggestions for children to do body movements as the text is read. It does not include additional information about the animals, rainforests, and the score of the song as is in the hardback and paperback editions.
