It’s amazing the variety of plants and herbs that can be found in our backyards. There is a helpful book named, “A Field Guide to Medicinal Plants.” The book contains numerous photos and detailed descriptions of the plant or herb you are researching. This can be beneficial to someone that is interested in wild plants and herbs that are grown in your community.

In the early 1900s, Albert Einstein postulated a theory of gravitation he called Relativity.

According to NASA, another facet of his theory has now been verified.
