Very good graphics.
Notice where the green is!
And where the sand dominates!
Didn't used to be that way, goats and sheep eat down to and including the roots, other ruminants only clip off the tops and leave the roots and growth spots.
Guess who has destructive goats?

Plus, I've heard that the Ottomans had the brilliant idea to tax their subjects on tree counts, which caused the tax payers to chop down the trees. No trees... No taxes. You can accuse the muslims of many things, but not brilliance.

Did you watch 24 last night. It's really getting STUPID beyond belief... If they don't come back to reality I think I'm going to be an ex-fan.

Farmer John said...

Sorry, my wife's the 24 fan in our household...

even so, come Lord Yeshua.

YEp, they're wandering off into liberal Bizarro World.... unfortunately... Hubby keeps holding the candle of hope up, but after last week,,,, I'm just disgusted.

Brooke said...

I'm going to hold out hope, too... But Jack had better straighten them out!
