As he crosses the corner a first ray of sunlight touches his face. "Glad to see a little bit of summer again" Keith mumbles to himself. Times have changed since the discovery. “I can’t believe how far we’ve turned our back towards nature”. In several minutes he will be there, at the place where it all started.

An unbalanced world

Thinking and writing about a food crisis which is happening locally makes me gloomy. Where some have far too little food and water others have plenty (e.g. too much).

Simple questions enabling us to review the world

There are several people I really admire, but after seeing this very short clip today I decided this is one person I would like to share with you guys. Please view it and be inspired to view the world differently.

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

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
