A young owl is not a cub! A nestling, if newborn, or a fledgling if older but not yet flying.

I love the smell of magnolia when in bloom. I sure didn't know they were so old & pollinated by beetles. Interesting little facts.

"Singapore has a strict water-management policy and except you have $200 to spare, you simply live with this rule." Badly worded.

Singapore has some utterly bizarre rules - and, sadly, some horribly draconian punishments for breaking them.

Any bird coming from an egg, and they all do is a chick. Hatched, not born as some would have us know.

Croissant = crescent were made in Vienna after the Turks failed Vienna siege (xv century?) the shape was a reminder of a different religion Christian had the cross Muslim the crescent. Uncultured Modern industries should not forget history and traditions.

According to a food documentary croissants in France are curved, their shape is straight because countries they export to prefer a straight shape.

Julie Domaille, Bees don't spread seeds and many plants are not pollinated by bees. Non-bee pollinators include flies, beetles, moths, butterflies, wasps, ants, birds, and bats, among others.
