Poem Friday on Thursday – 21 Today – From Child to Adult For Me Was Way Too Fast a Leap

 

 

 

On Halloween, 21 years ago this soul was born this day

21 years  this soul has given me pleasure in the most delightful way

 

Not going to embarrass him by gushing too much

 But  He has a great nature, kind, funny  and a soft touch

 

A little bit Aussie and a little bit Dutch

Oh a little bit Pom and Kiwi as such

 

I know his future is bright as he is quite focused and driven I believe

A Great and happy life ahead I am sure he will achieve

 

Happy Birthday Jayden as we used to say “You have the key of the Door”

Which you could say,  you had a long time before

May you have another fantastic 21 years and many many more

 

And May your Angels be with you where ever you are

Working, Surfing, driving, swimming, partying and even a bar

 

I love you and proud of you  Jayden a heap 

May all your wishes come true and a healthy life you keep

21 today from child to Adult  for me was way too fast a leap

3. Tetrachromacy is the ability to see light from four distinct sources. An example of this in the animal kingdom is the zebrafish (Danio rerio), which can see light from the red, green, blue, and ultraviolet sections of the light spectrum. True tetrachromacy in humans is much rarer.

Humans are normally trichromats, having three types of cone cells that receive light from either the red, green, or blue part of the light spectrum. Each cone can pick up about 100 graduations of color and the brain combines colors and graduations so that there are about 1 million distinguishable hues coloring your world. A true tetrachromat with an extra type of cone between red and green (in the orange range) would, theoretically, be able to perceive 100 million colors.

Tetrachromacy is thought to be much more common in women than men – estimates range from 2 – 3% to 50% of women. Interestingly, colour-blindness in men (much more common than in women) may be inherited from women with tetrachromacy.

4. Mothers Day was started by a woman named Anna Jarvis of Grafton, West Virginia. In 1907 Mrs. Jarvis began a cmpaign for the nationwide celebration of motherhood. At first no one paid much attention to her but gradually churches and local topwn organizations began inviting her to speak at their meetings. Soon her notions caught on throughout the country, and onMay 9, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson made the holiday official

“This woman, who died penniless in a sanitarium in a state of dementia, was a woman who could have profited from Mother’s Day if she wanted to,” Antolini said.

“But she railed against those who did, and it cost her everything, financially and physically.”

5. Drinking too much water too quickly can lead to water intoxication. Water intoxication occurs when water dilutes the sodium level in the bloodstream and causes an imbalance of water in the brain. Water intoxication causes an electrolyte imbalance that affects concentrations of the ion sodium, and it leads to a condition called hyponatremia.
