It is deciduous. I don't think it has flowers; strictly for shade. I don't know if it has fruits or nuts. As you can see, it grows very tall/big. Its canopy seems pretty airy. Photos were taken today; the leaves are new growth. A few weeks back there were no leaves. From a distance, the bark seems smooth; close-up you can see that it's just a finer texture but not smooth. Help!!! What is this tree?
update: I think it's a Chinese Elm (otherwise called a Lacebark Elm?) or some variation thereof.

My internet connection has been on the blink. I can't figure out whether the problem is with my modem or filter or if it's on the service provider's side.

Every child would benefit from learning how to be gracious. Gracious in winning. Gracious in losing. Gracious in accepting compliments. Gracious in receiving criticism. Gracious in giving compliments. Gracious in giving criticism.

Every day, we live in a changed world. Someone, somewhere, dies and is gone from this world every day. Someone is born. Something is destroyed. Something is created. Something is consumed. Something is generated. No two days are ever the same. We are never the same, one day to another so long as we can make new memories. Because we are all "different" each day, the world is "different" each day.

Praise be to God! I have knocked off $10K from my student loan balance. I still owe more than the cost of an average new car, though. I pay more on the student loan monthly than I pay on the mortgage. The student loan balance currently is higher than the mortgage balance, but hopefully that won't be true by the end of the year. It's a long, slow march, but progress is being made.
