    A tree taken from a World War I battlefield in France and planted during French President Emmanuel Macron’s state visit last week has disappeared from the White House lawn. President Donald Trump, Macron, his wife Brigitte and Melania Trump all posed for photo ops on the south portion of the White House lawn last Monday as they used shovels to unearth a setting for the sapling. The gifted sessile oak tree originated from the site of the Battle of Belleau Wood in Belleau, France, in which American, French and other allied troops fought the Germans during World War One. But...

    “Give (one) enough rope, and (one) will hang (one)self.”Donald Trump's alleged war with the press has been widely assailed in the mainstream media. Newsweek called it "dangerous." The Daily Beast calls it "anti-American."  SE Cupp opined that it's the stuff of dictators: Look, you know, I was talking to Cokie Roberts, a veteran journalist, about this recently, and she said, look, the media doesn't need to be popular. That's not our job. And so we shouldn't necessarily worry about popularity or our approval in the polls. But the poll that you talked about is trust, and that should matter to...

    The historic Jackson magnolia has been on the south facade of the White House since the 1800s—making it the oldest on the grounds.

    The south facade of the White House will undergo a dramatic change this week: the historic Jackson Magnolia, a tree that has been in place since the 1800s, is scheduled to be cut down and removed. The enormous magnolia, one of three on the west side of the White House and the oldest on the White House grounds, extends from the ground floor, up past the front of the windows of the State Dining Room on the first floor and beyond the second-level executive residence. The tree has had a long and storied life, yet has now been deemed too...

    Liberals specialize in ruining holidays and they put the most effort into Christmas, which is the most hated of all on the left.

    Which Trees Offset Global Warming Best? Some trees are better than others at absorbing carbon dioxide by Earth Talk Updated March 29, 2017 Trees are important tools in the fight to stave off global warming because they absorb and store the key greenhouse gas emitted by our cars and power plants, carbon dioxide (CO2), before it has a chance to reach the upper atmosphere where it can help trap heat around the Earth’s surface. ALL PLANTS ABSORB CARBON DIOXIDE, BUT TREES ARE BEST While all living plant matter absorbs CO2 as part of photosynthesis, trees process significantly more than smaller...

  • Vanity: How to decorate around a Christmas tree with very large base holder?

    Ok, we are surprising someone tomorrow with a Christmas tree. We are Jewish so pretty clueless as to how this works. Got a beautiful tree about 6 feet, best watering stand we could find, even got millions of little lights all up around it (thanks, YouTube!). But it needs something around the base. Thought I could just grab a tree skirt, but this tree has an enormous stand, diameter maybe 2.5 feet. The skirts only have a small hole for the trunk. What can we put under the tree that would fit? So many Christians here who put up trees...

The tree's estimated weight is more than 544.3 million kilograms. Torres left the house of his godmother, accompanied by a committee of village elders, friends and family, and walked down the Sabino street towards a cluster of Cypress tree leaves to start with the ritual...
