Saturday, June 8 is World Oceans Day.
The world's oceans are the cradle of life on Earth. Most of the surface of the globe is covered in seawater and, in some ways, we know less about the oceans than we do about the Moon.
That hasn't stopped us from over-fishing, polluting, and otherwise damaging the oceans. Saturday provides an opportunity to reflect on what we can do to protect and preserve the oceans and the life within.
Saturday is also Name Your Poison Day. That's a rather colorful way of stating your preference, isn't it?
And Usual Suspect Brownielocks.com advises that Saturday is beginning of World Wide Knit in Public Days, running this year from June 8 to June 16. If anyone gives you a hard time about it, you can always stab them with your knitting needles -- but, we hasten to add, The Blog of Days does not recommend or condone violence, even against those who frown on knitting in public.
