HAPPY NEW YEAR every one, I hope this will be another great year for you. Let me post some pics from one of the " finger lakes" nearby the famous Grate lakes in upper state New York just for my memory and small thoughts.
Just a few decades ago, this lake was known as the most polluted lake in the United States and it still stays in the same position today. The pollution is invisible.
From old times Japanese proverb says " When the water is too clean, no fish choose to live. ( = A clear stream is avoided by fish. )" . On an earlier occasion there's no such knowledge as 'mercury' 'a radioactive substance', and all sort of chemicals create a serious damage for the nature. However today, this proverb still means a lot in some way. Spectacularly beautiful Japanese goldfish are raised in muddy green water. Thus the appearance and the reality are often out of proportion.
