FFMOM

As we move toward commemorating Earth Day on April 22, it is interesting to note that it has been determined that there are approximately 400,000 types of flowering plant species canvassing the earth today. The Convention on Biological Diversity comprised of 193 members scoured over 600,000 plant names to refine the vast number of plant species listings into a singular master list. This was a 3-year process that was initiated at their 2002 Convention.

Over 125 million years ago, the very first flower thrived in freshwater lakes quite possibly nibbled on by the Brachiosaurus and Iguanodon Dinosaurs sharing the land at that point in our earth’s history. The “Montesechia Vidalii” as it is referred to has been determined to be the first Angiosperm, flowering plant, to exist. It’s discovery has occurred in Central and Northern Spain amongst what is now the mountainous regions of that country.

Lead Scientist, Professor David Dilcher of Indiana University has stated, “There’s still much to be discovered about how a few early species of seed-bearing plants eventually gave rise to the enormous, and beautiful, variety of flowers that now populate nearly every environment on Earth.”

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad® Ranch boast of nearly 50 acres of spectacular Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers brightening the hillside they emerge from with unbelievably vibrant colors as they reflect off of the Pacific Ocean in a symphony of natural magnificence. This breathless sight seemingly glorifying the arrival of Spring and rebirth has become an aspect of San Diego’s local heritage for over sixty years. The flowers are reaching their peak bloom right now and the fields are open until Mothers Day on May 14th.

Out of the 365 chosen days in the year, it seems fitting that the culmination of the Flower Fields would rest yearly upon the commencement of Mother’s Day. Within the United States, Mother’s Day will be 103 years strong in 2017. According to Wesleyan Antolini in her Ph.D. dissertation, the founder of Mother’s Day, Anna Jarvis, began a lifelong commitment to promote, “…a day where you’d go home to spend time with your mother and thank her for all that she did,” by organizing the first Mother’s Day Observance in 1908 inspired by her own Mother’s death in 1905.

In it infancy, Mother’s Day traditions can be traced to ancient Greece and date as far back as the 1600’s. Throughout time, the radiant colors and stimulating fragrances flowers provide have been interlaced into the centuries of honor and celebration. O.C.’s Hair Police encourages you to pile the kids into the car and day trip to the Flower Fields. As you immerse you and your family within the awe-inspiring splendor of Mother Nature on display, we would like to offer the following thoughts.

“…flowering plants,…account for much more biomass than terrestrial animals and provide the structural canvass of the vast majority of land based eco-systems.” per Nick Fleming online, BBC-Earth.

Much like the radiant flower, so too shines the beauty and power of each and every Mother within the balance of nature and her profound relevance therein. In saying this, O.C.’s Hair Police believes it only appropriate then to memorialize in flowers that which mirrors proportional distinction in magnitude.

For those Mother’s that immerse themselves and their families within the living masterpiece of flora alongside the Carlsbad hillside, may you embrace your importance within as you glance upward toward Mother Earth speaking through the Flower Fields as their brilliance in virtue emulates your very own profound impression amongst us. Enjoy!FLOWER FIELDS

Throughout the Netherlands and Scandinavia nearly 1,000 years ago, animal bones were laced to the footwear of those looking to travel on frozen lakes and rivers.  In 1592, a Scotsman developed an all-iron skate.  For the Dutch, this innovation lead to a surge in traveling on blades between villages as well as an efficient and popular means of transport beginning in the 1600’s.  On the Fens in England in 1763 the maiden speed skating race was launched, one hundred and twenty one years prior, the first Skating Club was established in Edinburgh in 1642.

North America was introduced to speed skating shortly after 1763. By 1850 and nearly eighty five years into being introduced to the sport, the U.S. had developed a lighter, sharper, all-steel blade. Americans have without question embraced the gamete of sporting events and pastimes offered within the realm of ice skating since its inception within our country.

The average daily degrees in Southern California reaches 75 farenheit.  The temperature required in order for a lake to begin to freeze from its perimeter inward is 32 degrees. During this process, the air must remain colder than the water. Southern Californian’s are not deterred easily and in this instance climate is not a factor.  Listed below are six of many ice skating rinks throughout our adventure seeking, health conscious County.  From public skate to figure skating to ice hockey to broomball, the sport of ice skating is thriving in the O.C.

As California enters into its rainiest season in five years, O.C.’s Hair Police thought it just might be good karma to assist in furthering this pattern by encouraging participation in a genuine winter sport established almost 10 centuries ago. In a sense, performing our very own rain dance!

Regardless of the reason, O.C.’s Hair Police hopes you will enjoy a wonderful family outing by accessing one of the many skate rinks in the O.C.  Enter into the same temperate atmosphere that ensures snow capped mountaintops along the Sierra Nevada mountain range which produces 95% of our water source in California.  May your winter wonderland excursion within the rink foster fond family memories and just maybe through osmosis the continuance of a rainy So Cal winter!   anaheim Ice     family fun!!!

“…a simple and totally awesome outdoor activity…Fill your yard, the beach, a park, a campground, or anywhere outdoors with giant, almost unpoppable, BUBBLES!!” Chelsea Rector

Balboa Island Native and current UCR Masters Student, Chelsea Rector, exclaims with a smile that, “Bubbles are incredibly colorful! They are able to illuminate any backdrop with an unpredictable canvas of ever changing hues based on the angle of the rays of light touching down upon the bubble as it emerges. Seemingly the bubble comes alive while creating its very own exclusive shape to not be repeated in exact formation really ever again. Fascinating!!”

Chelsea, while a Fellow at the Culver Center of the Arts, completed a bubble study as a part of her Fellowship at the Center. She also has a Masters Degree (MFA) in Visual Arts from UCR. For your best bubble results, she recommends the Beeboo Big Bubbles Kit and the Pro Bubble Juice both found on Amazon at a reasonable price. The Pro Bubble Juice works well with standard size bubble wands also. Chelsea strongly urges our readers to buy the Pro Bubble Juice by the “…gallon, for maximum fun!”

Bubbles have been entertaining people of all ages for at least 400 years. Bubbles can reach a height of 4 meters while there is no limit on the length that they are able to extend to. Children as young as 2 years of age through their college experience are able to benefit intellectually on a conceptual basis from the formations of bubbles by simply creating and/or watching them evolve from a bucket of soapy water. Be sure to maintain a higher bubble mix than water while making your very own bubble art. Ultimately, water will succumb to gravity affecting the ability of the bubble to maintain its vitality. The bubble mix will slow this process down due to its glycerol content.

OC’s Hair Police thanks Chelsea for her comments while hoping that her direction will allow you and your family the time this summer to enjoy simple pleasures such as a little BUBBLE MANIA!Bubble History
