Located entirely within Del Norte and Humboldt Counties, the four parks, together, protect 45% of all remaining coast redwood old-growth forests, totaling at least 38,982 acres. These trees are the tallest, among the oldest, and one of the most massive tree species on Earth.

Virginia Tech shooting - was a school shooting that occurred on April 16, 2007, at two buildings, West Ambler Johnston Hall and Norris Hall, on the campus of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, in Blacksburg, Virginia. Seung-Hui Cho, an undergraduate student at the university and a U.S. resident of South Korean origin, shot and killed 32 people and wounded 17 others with two semi-automatic pistols. Six others were injured jumping out of windows to escape Cho. As police stormed Norris Hall, Cho committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. It is the deadliest school shooting in the history of the United States, and was also the deadliest mass shooting by a lone gunman in U.S. history until it was surpassed nine years later by the Orlando nightclub shooting.

Calling it a night.............................
Ah yes ... the thing most of us use to play this game!
I love the second cartoon. You should hear my children trying to explain to my grandkids how it used to be. But my kids were lucky because we had a set of World Book Encyclopedia and I kept it up to date each year.
... and no, I'm not posting anything for the game here. LOL
I concur! This resource is fantastic!
I was raised to use the reference section of our Public Library in the days of the 12 (?) volumes of Encyclopedia Britannica with their salesmen knocking on our door in vain!
Back to the game:
Xanthophylls are yellow pigments that occur widely in nature and form one of two major divisions of the carotenoid group; the other division is formed by the carotenes. The name is from Greek xanthos and phyllon, due to their formation of the yellow band seen in early chromatography of leaf pigments.
Yoga - is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. Yoga is one of the six Astika (orthodox) schools of Hindu philosophical traditions. There is a broad variety of yoga schools, practices, and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Yoga gurus from India introduced yoga to the West, following the success of Swami Vivekananda in the late 19th and early 20th century with his adaptation of yoga tradition, excluding asanas. Outside India, it has developed into a posture-based physical fitness, stress-relief and relaxation technique. The term "Yoga" in the Western world often denotes a modern form of hatha yoga and yoga as exercise, consisting largely of the postures or asanas.
Just put a mask on these two and this would be oh so 2020 ... LOL
