    The Epoch Times ^ | Updated: December 10, 2019 | By Isabel van Brugen
    Some plants emit a high frequency distress sound when they are placed under environmental stress, a team of researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel has found. The team, led by Itzhak Khait, examined the sounds emitted by tomato and tobacco plants when stressed by insufficient water or when their stems are cut. Microphones recorded ultrasonic sounds between 20 and 100 kilohertz emitted by the plants in both cases, the study found. The sounds emitted by the stressed plants are at frequencies unable to be heard by humans, however the team of scientists believes “some organisms” can hear the sounds...

  • Hitler’s vegetable garden discovered at his secret headquarters

    A garden that once provided Adolf Hitler with fresh vegetables has been discovered at his infamous Wolf’s Lair headquarters. Hitler spent much of his time in the final years of the war at the Wolf’s Lair, which is located in what is now Poland. The top-secret, heavily guarded bunker complex was used by the Nazis until January 1945, when it was abandoned and partly destroyed ahead of advancing Soviet forces. The garden was found on the grounds of Mazurolandia, a nearby theme park museum, and excavations took place during the summer.

    Pastor Phil was not raised with guns. He was raised in Chicago, where guns were associated with crime and gangsters. He did not own a gun until he was in his 60's, after taking the call to become pastor of a struggling church in the North woods of Wisconsin. The Church has prospered and grown, although it remains small. A parishioner gifted land to the Church. The Pastor and his wife have a small acreage, the Church has a nice new building.

    My Poor Bedraggled, Dying Garden ^ | Jun 16, 2019 | (self)
    I live in rural Upstate NY, in a field in the woods on a hill in the Finger Lakes. Mrs. Dayglored and I have a large garden (flowers and ornamentals, not produce) that in most years is gorgeous this time of year with blossoms all over. (Lots of weeds to remove too, of course.) This year, all the #&!@* RAIN that started early and continues through today has wreaked havoc on it! The ground is saturated and there are puddles that never go away. A dozen little evergreens we planted last year are drowning and dying. Many flowers that are...
