    #10 Yes, and so many urban cities just have honking of the cars, along with the occasional siren! Love the invention of the multi-sound clock-radio - sounds of crickets, the ocean, the rain, the crashing waves, and a waterfall. We all need that. When people don't have green trees or grass, I don't think they realize how much they miss out on....nature is indeed so very beautiful.

    #7 "There is nothing more soothing to me than being near a body of water, watching the ​fish, the birds, listening to the sounds of nature which includes the waves on the ocean when the tide returns back in towards the shore." What a visual, as the river I thought was fresh-water, then you end up at the tide with the ocean rather smoothly but abruptly if you read close. You and @Deb Helfrich both have a way with words, and I'm sure that @Ali Anani would agree that you should write poetry with me!

    #5 Super interesting information, and WoW your experience must have landed you with a really good heart! I can't help but wonder if you'll live longer than the rest of us! Thank you, seriously for all the information - truly worthy of its own Buzz but so so love that it is here in the Comment Stream instead! In many cities throughout California, most people that can afford a salt water tank actually don't manage it themselves - they have "the fish man" come over 1-2x a week. Just like "the pool man" and "the water man." And in some places, you can still get fresh organic milk delivered in glass bottles, just like back-in-the-day. Cherish your additional information, and I'd like to keep writing articles on fish. I hope you can contribute - just add 2 pics & iBAM! you've got Honey!

    Watching fish in an aquarium can be very relaxing plus aquariums can be quite beautiful I'm of the same opinion as @Lisa Gallagher, I like to enjoy the relaxation of being outside with nature.

    When I was a child, I used to live at Daytona Beach during the summer months. I found nothing more relaxing then hearing the sound of the ocean when trying to sleep.

    Now that it's legal to possess small amounts of marijuana in Illinois, I'll bet there's a lot of people staring into space or at the wall instead of nature. Goldfish will be swimming to the unemployment line and the sale of fish bowls will plummet.

    We have many areas near us where we can watch the fish swimming in the open river. There is nothing more soothing to me than being near a body of water, watching the ​fish, the birds, listening to the sounds of nature which includes the waves on the ocean when the tide returns back in towards the shore.

    #5 You know what, Paul this comment of yours deserves a full buzz..... I'd never thought about the message of these small bowls and my only real life experience is a vague memory of getting some in a baggie during a grade school carnival. Geez, the ways us humans can really not live up to the responsibility of our big pre-frontal cortices.

    Hi Margaret-

    As someone who has kept fish since the 60's, I've got to say keeping goldfish or bettas in such tiny bowls is very poor practice, even though stores encourage you to do this. It's like keeping a small dog or cat in a 20-gallon tote- they might live, but in horrible conditions.

    Here are some quick references:
    (A 20-gallon tank -24" x 12" x 16") has enough room for one slow-moving fancy goldfish, but not a short-finned one.
    goldfish myths

    Bettas aren't as bad in a small-ish container, but are still susceptible to rapid waste build-up. They live in very shallow water in very tropical Asia, so they need higher temperatures than most people set their thermostat for. They really need a heater.

    It's easier to care for a larger tank than a small one because you have a much larger margin for error. If you overcrowd a tank with too many fish, that margin gets razor-thin. The margin on a saltwater tank is even smaller!

    OTOH, if you do your homework and do things right you can have a beautiful tank with long-lived fish. Some species are a lot more interactive than others. And you can actually teach your goldfish!

    #1 #1 You are quite on the par, and ahead of the game with a pet dog. For those that have an Invisible Illness or Mental Health concerns over being disabled, serving as Primary Caregiver to our parents, or just melancholy, many medical studies have shown the value of a Companion Pet solely to add the last 'missing' sensation here, "touch" and affection, a relationship, and positive reinforcement. Just as a mother rocks her newborn on her shoulder, that skin:skin (or skin:fur) contact releases endogenous hormones (e.g., encephalons) from the brain to the rest of the body. These have a morphine-like effect. So yes! Your pet is healthy for you, and for the geriatric population in nursing homes, you will regularly find dogs and cats residing. Furthermore, this is why horses on patrol are used for crowd control - animals just soothe most people. Thank you, Deb for bringing up such salient points. You are great with the dog:landscape combo and blessed you have it accessible!

    I simply have to have the sound of moving water splashing throughout my day, but I tend to prefer the contemplative stimulation of a vast landscape. I will keep the aquarium concept stashed away for when I get settled. Luckily, I do have my dog to ensure my strolls are a daily fact.

    #21 @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD an A+ and I've made you happy! well that just made my day thanks I'm chuffed. If i may make a suggestion...I have joined your Hive (Home Remedies) and I thought it may also be beneficial if you joined mine (Horticulture UK), that way when I post an article that is relevant towards home remedies, or plants that are beneficial for the health matters that you have highlighted you would be able to check it out, and then if suitable share it to your hive (there will be no hoax concoctions though) .....not sure what you think?
    And you mention Heart Disease, which is a bit coincidental as I was reading about some plants and herbs such as Lavender and Ginkgo which are beneficial as a preventative measure against this only last night, If you like I will put something together and post it to my hive hopefully over the weekend, have you any thoughts on this?....I'm looking forward to a wonderful journey, and letting the other Bees know what we are discussing and thinkiing!

    #20 @Andrew Porter: Woo~Hoo! You get the A+ for the day! You make me so happy and as a horticulturist, I definitely want you to do just what you are saying! It's perfect! We're spot on Target! I'm focusing on Heart Disease at first, since it is the #1 Killer of women and men. Please think on that, and let's keep the didactic conversation here - to affinitize and let others know our thinking as we embark on this Great Flight!

If you really enjoy writing or posting for this site, I definitely want to keep it 'medical' with no hoax remedies - and vis a vis this Comment, I'm inviting you to Co-Administer Hive: Home Remedies with me! We'll discuss topics, as I want them published in an orderly fashion, and I'd like an emphasis on Women's Health and Invisible Illnesses here ;). Is that okay?

    Great article @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD home remedies are an ideal way for keeping away from the Doctors surgery (it's very rare that I pop along to the Doctor), and lets promote plants and herbs there are some wonderful ones that many people actually grow in their gardens, yet don't realise that the plants have some remarkable benefits towards health, if you or anyone is interested here is the link to an article I did a while ago, which also includes a link to a follow up article about the same subject.... https://www.bebee.com/producer/@andrew-porter/10-of-the-most-underrated-medicinal-plants-in-the-world

    #10 Exactly. That is the essence of the 'diet' of Age Management Medicine - to eat 'natural' was a huge start. With Monsanto corporation and all the hype about pesticides and killing bees (as @Pamela L. Williams so eloquently wrote in "World Honey Bee Day" here: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@pamela-williams/world-honey-bee-day ), that has transitioned from (2) buy only organic to (3) grow your own veges AnD beeZ! So my question is, who is the Bee-Keeper? Does anyone 'walk away' with the honey, all sticky and attached to a comb? They come at night, when the beeZ are sleeping...

This is one way to fellowship together - There is also Hive "Women Entrepreneurs."! Academic medicine for minorities takes special precedents at universities, esp Ivy League. Food for thought.
