An Awesome Book

Dallas Clayton just sent over my very own copy of An Awesome Book, his children’s book about the importance of dreams. He toured around reading his book to as many kids as he possible and for every book he sold, he gave one away. I have to admit I got a little bit emotional as I read it, books like this are necessary!

    Dallas Clayton is a good man for making a book like this for kids, Kids have very little inspiration these days, other authors of children’s book should follow in his footsteps and create books with imagination like this…I’ll be purchasing this book for my niece and nephew. Has Dallas Clayton created any more books?

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
