Our islands have no food from outside

Ok, so it finally happened.



We knew it could happen, and some things were ready, but most were not.



After a week of noise and a mixture of paralysis and ineffective shaking, it's official: the last cargo with external food entered the harbour yesterday. It seems unlikely that there will be more ships in the next few days.



Those in the know say we need to get ready for major disruption. An euphemism for "no food in the foreseable future".



Of course, there are… Continue

By 2020 I'll be 57

Which means many issues that are troubling me today won't be there.



There'll be other issues, for sure.



My best case scenario includes having "room swadeshi", which means I have all the stuff I need in 1 m³. That 1 m³ includes bed and toilet and light and stove and water filter and foldable solar panel for the netpc. Books fill up a huge portable disk, tho' of course there's a backup on the cloud. (And no, I'm not talking Iceland here.)



I don't grow my own food, but I… Continue

But I don't need more heroes! ;-)

Ok, select someone to "shadow", someone to emulate, so that I'll get out of my comfort zone and into the learning zone ... without entering the "too much chaos" zone.



Three options here:



1. Cheapest, dirtiest one, is assume I'm old enough to be my own hero. After all, I've done quite a number of things myself. Not legal in this game? Won't learn a darn thing? Ok. Had to try! :-)



2. Look at my current set of… Continue

Simplicity is hard, fun and rewarding

Think ninja warriors without the gear.



Think Harrison Owen, of Open Space Technology fame, and his "one thing less to do" meme. As in 1) meditate, 2) open the space for others, 3) take a nap.



Think Edward de Bono's "Simplicity" book, way too complicated if you ask me, but with condensed messages every other page. (So why exactly did he write the non-condensed versions? Hah, I don't know.)



Think Tarzan, with his Hollywood-appropriate visible underware.



Think… Continue

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
