What to do and How to do It

For those people who collect skills - this is how to make your own waterproof matches.

Off-based Farming

Liberals will attack anything and everything, if they think they are right and somebody else is wrong. This article has some very good points to make, but the challenges within the food distribution system and not the fault of the farmers - who are just shills for the corporate agriculture mentality. Note how he writes off the organic farmers - get used to the idea of growing your own food! and clothing. and entertainment. et al.

On another note - I have observed that by including blogs in social networks, the PTB has essentially killed off the independent blogger - for instance, people who are into Facebook blogs are completely consumed in the facebook system and don't get howdt to read the rest of the world. The service of telling what is going on has been obfuscated with so much overload, that blogging has become a ventilation to get things howdt rather than a source of valid information. Unless you know who's blogs to go to, you just get shuffled more of the same in large volume. Time to rethink the whole game yet again...

Two stories, One truth

I usually don't cry with liberals, but this makes me mad too.

Note: Concerning the comments - if the uberstructure from DC and each state is totally ignored, the thugs will build enough muscle to take things that they want by force. As much as recreating life can be a chore, we need to develop a different system (and approach) that restores sovereignty at the most local level possible. (Dr. Lenny's routine is mostly the same, but no sports center as a video distraction.)

How do we file a multi-trillion dollar class action suit against the banking industry, to recover our trillions of bail-howdt dollars?

World Cup Results: Haiti 1 Monsanto 0

Caught this little tidbit on the net.

"A new earthquake" is what peasant farmer leader Chavannes Jean-Baptiste of the Peasant Movement of Papay (MPP) called the news that Monsanto will be donating 60,000 seed sacks (475 tons) of hybrid corn seeds and vegetable seeds, some of them treated with highly toxic pesticides. The MPP has committed to burning Monsanto's seeds, and has called for a march to protest the corporation's presence in Haiti on June 4, for World Environment Day."

The rest of the world recognizes when charity is self-serving. The time has come to take away the charter of all corporations, and introduce a sense of responsibility before granting any rights. In fact - what p[art of human rights can a corporation expect when in fact no corporation is an actual human. Let the corp eat their own monsanto seeds.

We may be hungry, but we will not eat poison.

Dam Spooky

Is it all governments or just the so-called democratic ones that have so little clue about the way the ecosystems function? Natural law is what it is and the second law of thermodynamics is very clear that you can't get something for nothing. So why do we continually have to watch the farce, of idiots ramming through major shit just because they can? You get to be horrified by this one. (I like the article, but the shameless glorification of Cameron and the Avatarites is both nonsense and bad form).

Dams and big power projects are a serious bane to the free flow of the waters. Schaumberger has the theory that meandering energizes to molecules when form is fit to sacred geometric proportion. Here in the Pacific Northwest, the argument goes on for pulling existing dams. This would release all the silt and particulate behind the wall downstream, where it will plug up benthic interstices and essentially smother both the redds and the bug (read food) populations.

A case of damned if you do, dammed if you don't.

(BTW - most east coast rivers in the USA were straightened in the 1600's by the process of cutting and shipping logs down rivers.)

Regional Rediler

As things develop, the weekend has been a spectacular success, while we were busy having a good time. Stuff is happening and the spirit of the universe is with us in all our endeavors. The sewing guild was nothing at all to what it portended to be - Dr. Lenny in a room for 10 hours with many women of all ages, sizes and interests. I have pictures that will be posted later.

Community is developing in a geodesic dome. The water is the key - a Schaumberger flow form to purify and mebbe a good sand filter. We are calling for land - but only under certain terms. Natural resources are available, but not to be taken by force. The earth is vibrating at a frequency where the animals understand the game - but we, as humans have exempted ourselves from our animal nature - and thus don't see. Just like current don't ask, don't tell.

Create quality. The power sources are not what people think - the game is changing rapidly. Get yourself into free-fall and you tend to fall up - against the course of gravity. Life becomes a faith and trust union - find people that can do with you and you have co-creation. The time has come - the game is new. Create your own rules as the fractal spins.

Time Challenged Reality

Good day! The plan is to head to the Sew-A-Thon and help people set up for the noon to seven event. We are sitting on the bed talking and the phone rings downstairs. No problem, a message will be left. We get downstairs five minutes later and the call to us is from me on my cell. Now it is really wierd - i take the blackberry out of my pocket and i have an open call to the other phone - to the voice mail box. It was Me calling - but my blackberry never left my side pocket. Our entire conversation about who was calling was recorded. Guess I'll have to start using the keyboard lock.

Today's event in Ashland is the Community Swap'N'Sew : A Wardrobe Redesign Extravaganza! Starts at noon at the Jackson Wellsprings : $10 admission or $5 with a bag of clothes. The idea is to introduce sewing as a community fun event and teach people an artform that will save them time and money in the long run.

Come and take all you want, learn to reconstruct, add flare, embellish, & more. Sewing machines and supplies available with expert instruction by donation. There will be fashion shows throughout the day and Aletha Nowinsky is the MC.

Dr. Lenny tries something new

Okay - so now is the time to learn how to post something on e-bay. I have been terribly resistant to e-bay due to my shopping phobia, but times are hard and we have to crack our nuts. So this is the first attempt. Please feel free to comment on the style and substance here rather than on e-bay.

It seems that e-bay has a very good racket going as gatekeeper to the internet garage sale. I have many strange and unique items that i would consider distributing for the right price - though i really wish that i didn't need to sell stuff for money. The universe is playing games and the society still insists upon pay to play.. So - buy it now! (ah, salesmanship, ah bartlebey, ah humanity)

Deep Thoughts

Nothing like uncertainty to get one going on a hump day morning. The universe has a perverse sense of humor and feeds information to the bards of the times by different means. Lucid dreaming is an area of interest, but i smoke herbs that play with my ability to recollect the nocturnal images. However, i daydream and communicate on another level with other unique Gaian forms - so i feel that i have some knowledge of the sensory enhancement that some of us are feeling these days.

George talks about Irwin Allen dreams at Urban Survival - i seem to have I.A. moments in my remote viewing experience. My attention has been drawn to the gulf of Mexico - there are more life forms affected on different scale than we realize. We also are not getting valid information from the press outlets and have to piece together information from intuition and prior knowledge. What we do know is that for all the problems of the Exxon Valdez - that spill has mostly been emaciated by natural process over time.

Nature is as nature does : as above, so below. The other consciousness' on this planet have accepted Gaia beginning her metabolic shift into the next phase of creation - the oil spill is a bleeding of bodily fluid that will find transformative properties laden beneath the horrors. Life is always changing and one series of deaths brings a novel series of births. The mix will be different - not necessarily better or worse, just different.

Take care with thoughts, as they bring realities of their own. Being at peace on various levels means connecting to people, places and items that have surrounded us during our current lifetimes. Look at the values that you hold and attempt to stay true to those values that you relish. Remember to be kind, but stay firm - we are not all going to enjoy (or survive) the coming storms - but those of us that live through them will need a new operating system that is well beyond the limits of linux, windows and macworld.

Welcome to free fall - the change in everything we know to whatever will be. Things are what they are: take care to deal as best as can be done. The best of the old and the best of the new will have to be combined in many permutations to find things that work on an individual local basis. No whining - just roll up your sleeves.

Consider what level you wish to play the game of life, then interconnect with creatures working on the same level. But cross that with the guild that functions in your specific field of interest. Find a group of like thinkers and meet weekly to discuss the series of events as they unfold. Thank you to all the hedronists - who meet at 4:00 pm each Tuesday - to discuss here, there and everywhere. The ideas burst with potential energy and our light shines bright.

Morning Thunder

Good morning on a monday - time to awaken into the dawn of a new world - a new point in time. Keeping a positive spin on the reality game means blatantly ignoring the obvious - we have been taken to the cleaners by the people that drive the system. While i like to rag on the powers that be with all the rest of the bloggers, this time i have noticed a difference in the pressure points.

Allow me to step back for a moment. In January, i began noticing that the stress levels would rise right before the end of the month and leach into the beginning of the next month. February stress went a few extra days, March four or five, april a week. Well, May is still stressed and its double digits today - the tenth of the month.

Now the folks who are hurting are placing pressure on the rest of us. The panic means that regular people are starting to pressure each other - and everybody wants to enforce different rules that benefit themselves and penalize others. The people on the edge are overstressed right now and they are their own pressure point - which the rest of us really don't need. I can get pissed at the govt. and still function - it is a lot more difficult to get pissed at friends who are stressed by their own problems and taking it out on me.

It is even worse, when trying to work with community groups that each have their own agenda. The push comes to shove and people are being downright nasty. Cooperation ebbs when people are so out for themselves that there is no mutual win/win. So everybody, please, take a deep breath, smile and LET IT GO!!! Then relax and get on with whatever we need to do to maintain.

However, this system is penalizing those that work jobs and rewarding those that work the system. Some of us have just stopped - but there are enough others still going through the motions that keep things eking along. We need to think in systems planning - to start the next system while this one winds down. I am open to suggestions.

Howdt of Dodge

Spent a wonderful weekend in the Umpqua Valley, drinking wine and sharing friendships. If you ever have the chance to visit the Wild Rose Vineyard in Dillard Oregon, take the opportunity for a real treat. The Pinot Gris Port is spectacular. We had a Creative Catering Services mother day's breakfast of shrimp, foie gras, grits and sausage, with cranberry scones, fruit salad and coffee. The key feature of the fruit salad was a stick of chocolate covered bacon. Don't knock it until you've tried it - yum.

Being in the gulf while sitting here

sometimes we find ourselves completely howdtside normal patterns - life dislocates into smaller time independent regions and we go off on a little side trip of our own. things in the world change, but something brings an inconsistency that just tells me that the time continuum is currently disrupted and things are not appearing as they seem. it is as though i am in two places at once - in physical mind presence here and now, but not all here - taking in an unconscious adventure.

so say that i'm here and you see me here. both you and i can place me here at this point in time, so i must be here. but my personal engagement is remote - almost out of body and i am taking in events that are howdtside my physical range. Roger knows how this works.

now i know that i am supposed to cleanse the waters and now we have this massive oil slick in the gulf of mexico. i am there - this is how to fix the problem. first - cap the leak. this may not happen soon as the oil derrick is apparently on top of the hole. the composition of crude oil is a mixed bag of hydrocarbons - the dispersing agents will break up clumps into smaller particles, but those still need to be removed. both algae and mushroom have the capability of transforming small organic molecules to bio-mass. we should be able to genetically engineer a hybrid species that will eat the oil and render it into algae poop. (Fungi and algae already combine in nature to form lichen!!!)

decide if the current life is salvageable or not. if not - use lye and hydrolyze, then saponify. if otherwise, take firm control to keep pH in the 7.2 +/- 0.4 region. there are several bacteria and other microbe strains that may work in moderate pH, but looking at these vectors will take time and effort.

so if somebody (BP, fedgov) wants to really solve this problem, perhaps getting some R&D money into the hands of those of us that comprehend biochemistry might be in order. Big toys are necessary for the analytical work - partners are welcome.

Flash Update Galactic News Story

Global Warming

Here we start with endlessly faulty data – from instruments parked on urban “heat islands” to severely massaged data bases of daily temperature readings, from sketchy numbers for the vast reaches of the planet where there are almost no readings, to purging of decades of inconvenient data. Then these are meshed with models constructed around bad thermodynamics, baseless suppositions about the hugely dominant heat effects of water vapor and clouds, and hopelessly inaccurate quantifications of carbon uptake by the earth's forests and oceans.

What we have is a metabolic problem, not a climate problem. The science is as dense as the volcanic cloud. A very interesting science read.
