Fact of the Day: Red Algae Sea

The Red Sea get its name from the effects of a type of algae in its waters. When the algae dies, they turn the blue-green waters into a reddish-brown color.

    Before we get TOO excited about colour changes, the Sea
    has been over the years since the opening of the Suez Canal
    a most important shipping route. Have only seen it from 40,000 feet up, I am not an authority on sea colour changes.

    However of more importance is the fact that the ex-Governor of Alaska, the utter demented lunatic, Sarah Palin, who had no idea that Hawaii was a state of the Union and where the Russian Pacific fleet was based - Vladivostok!
    Now she as the "Mama Shootin' Moose", ex-Governor of Alaska, has to the delight of an audience of obviously "Tea Party supporters" endorsed Trump as C-in C of the US Armed Forces.
    Her son also still up in Alaska has been arrested for domestic violence??? Conveniently she forgot to mention THAT!!!!
    Donald with a RED button???????????
    You, Americans, who don't approve of the Republican lunacy,
    get off your ARSES and vote against the "APOCALYPTIC" end of the World.
    Otherwise, as for the colour of the Red Sea, that will be immaterial.
    Just remember some of you have grand kids!!

    1. Well Kati being a Berliner I suspect that like all young Germans you will travel.
      Heaps of young Germans here in Australia on 457A working visas and the most friendly of young travelers. You should consider it??
      I note the Brandenburg Gate is still in place?
      God help Angela's mercy mission if that monument goes
      up from a terrorist attack.

    1. What about bringing back Moses and see the SEA parted.
      That would be far more interesting than waiting for the water to turn RED !!!!
      I hope your comment above, Jaclyn, was "tongue in cheek"? Then seeing what is right below I do have my doubts.
