African Jungle



I had always thought of Africa as a large desert, but I have learned there are many very beautiful parts. In fact, much of the area along the equator turns out to be like a tropical jungle.

  1. Good morning PJM.

    Well my lack of snow has ended.

    It is 28 above this morning, and the 1 inch of snow has turned into about 5 inches plus.

    There is a lot of jungle in Africa but there is an awful lot of desert there also. Africa is a land of extremes. Either it is jungle or desert, but there is some place where it is a nice place to live. But almost every place you go, there is something that wants to kill you and maybe eat you. Remember that is were those killer bees come from. I don't know if they want to eat you, but they sure want to kill you.

    Happy New Year!!!

  3. Well now it is 28 above and raining. about a 1/8 inch of ice on the windshield, but it scraped off fairly easy because it was 28 above. The road aren't to bad, because they were snow packed and that absorbed most of the freezing rain.

  5. You're not allowed to call them jungles anymore. It's been replaced the politically correct "rainforest".
    28 degrees two days ago 51 now.

  6. According to Wikipedia

    The undergrowth in a rainforest is restricted in many areas by the poor penetration of sunlight to ground level. If the leaf canopy is destroyed or thinned, the ground beneath is soon colonized by a dense, tangled growth of vines, shrubs and small trees; this is called a jungle

  7. Political Correctness gives me hives. Got into a big hoo-ha on-line someplace a while back about the difference between dwarves and midgets.

    And the umbrella is to keep the sun out of her eyes.
