Welcome to Saturday Snippets ..my one-word prompt today is YEAR that was also a given really, wasn’t it?….as it’s the start of a New Year…The year 2022!
I can’t, however, take all the credit for that as New Year was suggested a while back by Diana who pens the mythsofthemirror blog but I saved it for now as it seemed more apt…Thank you Diana x
I thought this song fitted perfectly with the prompt..

While most people don’t think of Argentina as being a ski destination, for the intrepid winter sports lover, Argentina should be a destination of choice. One of the highest ski resorts in Argentina, Las Leñas has altitude to thank for its reliable snow year-round.
It may also be tempting to head to the beach while in Argentina, so you can spend a few days getting some sun, then hop on a 90-minute flight from Buenos Aires to enjoy the ultra-dry powder and unique conditions that make this destination so attractive for skiers. So, for this trip, you’ll need to pack your sunscreen and your snowshoes, but it will be a memorable trip, to say the least!
Year Million …Year Million is a six-part documentary and science fiction television series produced by the National Geographic Channel…A TV mini-series that gives an in depth look into what our future will look like when technology takes over, for better or worse…exploring life in the near and distant future, where artificial intelligence is everywhere and advances in medicine and biology …
I really like this National Geographic series…Have you watched this???
Real Roses that last a year??… The roses are preserved at the peak of their natural beauty and freshness for up to a year or longer. preserved roses are authentic Ecuadorian real flowers that undergo a special preservation process to keep their beauty for a long time. These fresh roses get cut at the stage where they are most radiant. The roses are then treated and conserved in a manner that maintains their freshness and beauty, ready to be part of a beautiful arrangement. The preservation process of our eternity roses helps them last for many years. These long-lasting roses sometimes are referred to as eternity roses, preserved roses, eternal flowers, forever roses, everlasting roses, or infinity roses…
The YEAR Niagra Falls dried up…1969…Niagara Falls, which is actually comprised of three waterfalls — the American, the Bridal Veil and the Horseshoe — was diminished by one, as the American fall was reduced to just a trickle, so it could be studied by U.S. engineers and geologists.
Thank you for reading Saturday Snippets…The year was quite difficult to come up with anything connected unless I used numbers and then it would be akin to war and peace…hahaha but thank you for sticking with it… I hope you liked the music…I look forward to your comments…Have a great weekend xx
