A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose – Philly Flower Show ! (G.Stein)

A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

This year Art deco 1920 movie house will be the flavor so I suggest you dress up as a flapper !

Flappers were a “new breed” of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior.



Watch a Jeeves and Wooster to get in the mood  -


The Code of the Woosters – Literature, Literature, Literature…

Their portrayal of Bertie Wooster and his valet Jeeves on the small screen is about as spot on as The main plot points are: Aunt Dahlia engaging Bertie to steal a cow creamer from Sir Watkyn and Stephanie Byng and Harold Pinker; Bertie getting into trouble (again) for stealing a constable’s helmet


Our guide to the Philadelphia Flower Show

Our guide to the Philadelphia Flower Show. Since 1829, the Philadelphia Flower Show has been wowing crowds with displays of horticultural goodness.


Philadelphia Flower Show

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is an annual event produced by The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in early March. It is the “largest indoor flower show in the world” [1] attracting more than 250,000 people annually. The show features large scale gardens, which range from elaborate landscaped displays to individual and club entries of a prize horticultural specimen. Each year there is an official theme which serves as the inspiration for most exhibits. The exhibits are submitted for judging in many categories, and are highly competitive.





No better way to celebrate the confirmed freedoms on using the net than to enjoy the aura of  carefree flappers –


FCC Vote Enshrines Net Neutrality Protections

After millions made it clear they would not allow the commission, lawmakers or the telecom industry ‘to mess with the Internet,’ broad coalition plans celebrations on verge of historic vote

“Consumers will be able to go where they want, when they want,” Wheeler continued. “Today is a red letter day for internet freedom.”

Though expected, the vote was greeted with cheers—applauded as “the biggest win for the public interest in the FCC’s history”— from supporters of net neutrality, the concept that says online traffic should not be relegated to fast or slow lanes determined by the large telecom companies who control much of the nation’s digital networks.

“Today’s vote shows that ordinary Americans can make a difference when they stand up to powerful corporate interests and Washington lobbyists.”
—Sen. Bernie Sanders

Drone Catching Tip Numero Uno- Drones Are Shy…..

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Drones are shy …..they like to hide.  How do I know? Welllllllllllllllllllllll,

In the middle of this drone saga, day after day was cloud filled, the local populace was living under the shadow of drone clouds blocking the sun, even locals would comment ” Where did the sun go? ” .

Then one day I ventured out about 5 am, my normal routine, and lo and behold there was the big dipper and little dipper- my daily star formation compass, in a deep azure night sky! Before that every morning sky was clouds clouds clouds…..

The day progressed and the sun rose shone all day, amazing!!  Then I heard that there was a tv show on a local PBS station by frontline concerning…. you guessed it, DRONES !

So the little fellows are fearful of being spotted, I reflected.

The night was clear, stars and moon above.  The next day was clear, sun and blue sky.   Then that night the drones were back ( they  have lights on them at night) and the little dipper and big dipper, gone from view .

And that is when I concluded,

if the drones are removed from the skies they will clear immediately and that the constant flyovers producing drone exhaust trails are blocking the sun moon and stars from citizens view.

I don’t know about you but I no likee…..

So if you come to Bucks County Pa and surrounding area to catch some drones it will be a long-term affair and you must come incognito… perhaps this

Above is true and based on my conclusions from watching drone activity in Bucks County Pa USA ( and surrounding areas) for last 4 years.  I’m talking big drones, dare I say …..military type drones flying around…..it is the stupidest thing I have ever witnessed in my life time.

Citizen journalist report, presented in an attempt, at witty repartee-because a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down…..



A society dedicated to informing the public on issues relating to drone usage over residential areas in the United Stae Of America for an informed public is the keystone of Democracy.

4 Easy Steps To Spotting Drone Infested Skies- SOS To The Citizens Of The World

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Uno The sun rises but you do not see it, only a cloud cover and a few rays of sunlight

Dos The sun sets but you don’t see that either only cloud cover

Tres the sky will be a deep blue, you look up and start to see streaks of white in the sky- soon the streaks  become so layered that the sky is no longer blue and the sun disappears behind a drone exhaust cloud cover.

Quatro  you walk out side and hear high-pitched whines  in the sky you look up and a ” plane ” streaks fast across the sky ( that ain”t no stinking plane—they don’t fly that low) you got DRONES!!!!!

A painting of a scene at night with 11 swirly stars and a bright yellow crescent moon. In the background there are hills, in the middle ground there is a moonlit town with a church that has an elongated steeple, and in the foreground there is the dark green silhouette of a cypress tree.

As our seas are filled with toxic plastic our skies  world wide will soon ( if not already) be filled with drones pushing out the birds insects ( such as monarch  butterflies ) from the sky.

The insects and birds  cannot survive the water vapor/ exhaust emitted from drones or the constant winds they produce.

Drones, with their exhaust the high powered winds they create their spying on citizens and the effects of their toxic exhaust on wildlife and humans on the ground , are one of the biggest contributors to the speedy advance of global warming ( after a 4 year study I have conducted in Bucks CountyPA USA these are my conclusions that I give to you, the world – for knowledge is power and power in the hands of citizens changes the world for the better!)

Birds and insects are the pollinators of the world they help to supply food to the world, interference in their migrations and flight patterns in the sky will and has had dire effects.

So, all you scientists, journalists, politicians and citizens take notice and take action to save our starry  moonlight skies from extinction — to prevent  a film of drone exhaust cloud cover from spreading across the globe!!!

Don’t take my word for it!!Watch those skies !!!

99 percent of the time you should be able to se the sun moon and stars to see sunsets and sunrises….
