hey now! don't go dissing the lemmings! that bad rap about
jumping off cliffs was entirely generated by a bored Disney
camera crew doing a "documentary". they *chased* those poor
leemings over the cliff to their deaths. Disney has a lot to
i find it sad, but amusing that over 75% of houses i am
seeing for sale have such rediculous (for the northeast
anyway) features as 'cathedral ceilings'. can you say 'heat
i'm looking into a modular type house to put on that abutting
lot (if i buy it. the present house is beyond fixer-upper, but
the heirs think they can sell it as habitable. i'm going to
offer them 40k. 50k if they do the demolition. no way is that
place going to get a loan as is). it's near impossible to find
a less than 1000 sq.ft. 2 bedroom, one bath plan... bigger is
all over, with huge amounts of wasted space.
i was thinking more along the lines of self-sufficiency:
gardening, mechanics, assorted handcraft arts (pottery,
basketry, woodworking, sewing, plumbing), a solid, practical
mathmatics base, critical thinking... stuff like that.
Last night while sitting in my chair
I pinged a host that wasn't there
I think I mentioned that 5 tromboncinis have come up, plus 4 bitter
melons. The heat is back in the 70's today and the peanuts seem stuck in
getting all the way up. The year is looking good, just getting impatient
with some of my tomatoes, seems like they are taking forever. The ones
in the ground are growing quickly though. Everything that had a brush
with the damping off seems to being having difficulties. Think I need to
People are only whining about it because President Monkey Smirk
hasn't taken the initiative. Part of preparing for it, is remediating
the problem, not exacerbating the problem. If it really is a problem of
"Titanic" proportions, then we're screwed because there is no place to
run. We may even set a record for mass extinctions, and take everything
with us. The idea is so over the top, we can't deal with it, and just
keep pulling our weeds and stomping our snails, trying to put it out of
our minds. We will all be long gone before the caca hits the fan,
but what preparations can you make for 250C temps and sulfuric acid rain?
It all boils down to the maximizing profits for the next quarter and
thirty years from now, will sort itself out on its' own, i.e. bad
The smirk comes up early in new book about our newest "dynasty".
Jacob Weisberg, editor of Slate on-line mag, has written
"The Bush Tragedy", which traces the Prescott, Bush and Walker
families several generations back. VERY interesting analysis
which goes deep into the Oedipal factor, and shows that W. is
a throwback to the Walker side, rather than the Bush side.
Highly recommended for those interested not only in how America has
been brought low, but also in our current topic, climate change: How
leadership can either ameliorate or exacerbate the phenomenon.
Did you see the new Dish Network commercial where the actor portrays
shrub and he is showing a remote control for the dish and he says,
(paraphrase) "There's this button pawzay; that's French for stop!" The
button was actually pause.
I laughed out loud at that one.
My grandmother was a VP at the notorious Walker family empire. She
worked on Wall Street for fourty years at G.H. Walker (no longer
exists). Hey, at least she got to use the lux box at Shea Stadium!
She's long gone after 96 years of life. They still send a Christmas
It's that other way that has me nervous. Hey ya know, how it goes, you
never know what you got till it's gone, you take Paradise and put up a
Cool back to square one, except this time these is already a lot of
hydrolyzed amino acids floating around. That should be helpful;o))
Who said anything about humanity? I'm thinking about life and the
many paths that nature has taken to express it and assure its'
survival. It took a billion years for the first nutrient sea to
develop. Hopefully, next time recovery will start sooner.
William Shatner pretty well summed it up on a CNN show. He said the vast
majority of our problems are due to the planet's overpopulation, including
global warming. He also commented on Congress demanding vehicles get 35 mpg
or better by 2012. He said 55 mpg is more appropriate. I'm in agreement
because economy vehicles made 20 years ago were getting around 35 mpg.
