Like most everyone, the loneliness and isolation is getting to me so I’d welcome hearing from anyone out there. Our days alone are long.

3. Negative ions are molecules floating in the air or atmosphere that have been charged with electricity.

Negative ions exist in nature wherever water collides with itself, including waterfalls.

Researchers have found evidence that negative ions are pretty awesome. They can: help regulate sleep patterns and mood; reduce stress; boost immune system function; increase metabolism of carbs and fats; kill or inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, viruses, and mold species, such as E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus.

  1. favorite blooming tree is a lilac. They should be out by mid may. Love the scent and all the varieties.No idea about the birds. I think the border collies just scare off the geese. I don’t think they catch them.

  2. My favorite blooming tree is the cherry tree. I was in DC when they were all in bloom a few years ago. I can’t identify any of the birds. Hadn’t heard of a jonquil before- I can’t wait to drop it into conversation. The jonquils are popping up near us too!
