From the dawn of time, people from all countries have invented their own deities and myths. These legends were often handed down from one generation to the next, until the invention of the written word.
Once the written word was invented, it was far easier for people to keep record of their deities and the many heroes that went on quests, and mythology involved into something far more interesting and personal for all societies. Gods gained their own personalities and agendas, heroes went off on epic quests, and from the mind of the authors, entire worlds were invented. Myth and legend had been tied in to life back in the days of yore, and to this day, it still plays a very important role in society.
The days of the week are in fact named after the Norse gods, each of whom had a day dedicated to them, even though there are not many people today who are aware of it. The creatures that modern society has come to love, such as dragons, werewolves, faeries and even vampires all originated from multiple legends and myths.
Mythology has also played a role in politics and even some of the spoken phrases that we use. Many video games and movies owe their back stories to creatures or figures that have come straight out of ancient texts.
Fresh food and water must be provided daily. A good finch seed mix of millets and canary seed will provide their everyday preference, and is found at any pet store. Social Finches have a need for green foods, such as chickweed and spinach, to be placed in a separate cup on a regular basis. Other food supplements can include egg foods, apples or pears. If you like to spoil your finches fix up some special nutritious treats of seeds with honey, fruits or vegetables.
Grit with charcoal is also needed in your Social Finch’s diet to aid in digestion. Grit with charcoal contains valuable minerals and trace elements. Grit should be provided either in a special cup or it can be sprinkled over the bottom of the cage floor. A cuttlebone is also needed because the calcium that it provides will give your bird a firm beak, strong eggshells when breeding, and it will also prevent egg binding in females. The lime found in the cuttlebone also aids the birds in their digestion. Very hardy birds, Society Finches, so almost all illnesses can be traced to an improper diet, dirty cages, or drafts. When they have a balanced diet and plenty of exercise, they are able to avoid most illnesses.
When folks are members of an ownership society, they tend to protest less, and work to fix things rather than engaging in just endless complaining and tearing down all that their civilization has to offer. It’s a vicious circle indeed, and something we need to consider in order to prevent the decline of our Great Nation. Indeed, I hope you will consider all this and think on it.
