    “Finland ranks as the world’s happiest country based on the 2021 report, with a score of 7.842 out of a total possible score of 10.

Additionally, Finlanders felt strongly that they were free to make their own choices, and showed minimal suspicion of… Read more »

    Well, spring has finally arrived. Everywhere I look I see crocuses and daffodils showing their full spring beauty. I planted pansies in one of my planters and then, when I thought the night would be too cold for them, I brought them in. I did not need too.
