Construction workers in the southern China city of Heyuan noticed something unusual in the ground -a stash of dinosaur eggs...43 in total. The discovery is an addition to an already impressive collection of dinosaur eggs discovered in the city, which prides itself  as the 'Home of Dinosaurs'.

Switzerland is the world's happiest country...topping the 3rd annual World Happiness index, an initiative under the United Nations. Closely followed by Iceland, Denmark, Norway and Canada in the rankings that measured happiness and well-being levels in 158 countries.

Happy Earth Day...and do have a wonderful weekend-do something different!

  1. @Erniesha Tibs: Thanks for stopping by, happy weekend!

  2. I will be fun to live in a happy country. I just wonder how it feels...feels blackouts or bad roads...hopefully sometime. I strongly admire Loretta Lynch and other women doing amazing things...I'll love to be like her when I grow up.

  3. It would be interesting to know the theory behind the happy countries.

  4. Happy Earth Day!!!
    I love the first quote!!!
    Happy friday doll!!

  5. That is a great quote! Happy Earh Day! Enjoy the weekend ahead :)

  6. I like that quote from Benjamin Spock; it should fill one with confidence that they do know things :) What a great find too with the eggs! Enjoy the weekend.


  7. Interesting about the happy countries. Wonder what contributes most to their happiness. Hope you have a happy weekend.

  8. Happy earth day. Thanks for sharing

  9. This is slightly off topic, but related to the discovery of so many dinosaur eggs. Now that scientists have the complete DNA of the Woolly Mammoth, I'm curious as to how they'll use it.

    I'd never heard of Loretta Lynch, but what a wonderful accomplishment she has to her credit!

    Being Swiss-Italian by heritage, it makes me quite "happy" to discover my relatives come from there.
