IMAGINE2: 2020 Meal

2020 Dinner

I pull my chair up to the table. I looked down at my plate. They don't make them as big as they used to anymore. My wife handed out the rations and placed them on everyone's plate.

I missed the taste of steak, potatoes, and fries. I was not going to complain this time, I am just thankful we have a meal…

EVOKE Mailing System

I have been hearing a lot of complaints about SPAM in the mailing system.

I strive to make everything I do on here personal. I really do take time to look at everyone's submissions and give them feed back if they send me a personal message requesting it. It may take some time, but I always have times where I don't have messages to check anymore. I don't require people to look at my submissions either, if they want to follow me or not it is up to them.

I just simply want… Continue

PHOTO3 : Count your blessings

Have you thought recently how good you have it?

Bad hair day? Slow internet connection today?

The other day I went to my fridge and sighed. Leftovers, again. I went over to my computer and jumped on Google. I ran into this picture up here on the Left. I looked at my sandwich and could not beleive how selfish I…

It's time for my 2nd posting of a picture. I want to hear from the viewers what this picture means to them. :)
I got a lot of feedback from the last picture and was very happy to see it.

Everyday I decided that I will post a photo for my friends on the EVOKE network.

I would like to get ideas from all of you what that photo means to you personally. What it means now or holds in store for the future.

STevo is my hero. I drew STevo during my break at work and used Photoshop to color it.

Bio: STevo is your average, slim guy. No super strength, no super speed. In fact, STevo does not even have…

Hey everyone,

I just had a great idea that will personalize everyone as their own super hero.

This may take some time, depending on how much you want to spend on it.


1) Create a background/bio for your character/hero. Include things your character/hero may have been involved in and traits.

You can choose to use your own name or create a fantasy name. The information…

Water in Kenya...

This picture is devastating. After a 4 year drought in Kenya, the people are forced to dig giant h***s in the river bed just to find water. Water from the ocean can be brought to them to drink, but first must go through the process of desalination. This converts sea water to drinking water. Maybe an orginization can make desalination plants along the ocean.

All credit given to… Continue

IMAGINE1: 2020 LEFTovers

In the year 2010 I would propose my idea for LEFTovers.

LEFTovers would start out as a international orginization. Business's around the U.S. would sign contracts to allow food that would normally go to waste, be re-distributed at LEFTovers facilities around the world.

The inspiration for the idea came from working at a buffet. Every night I threw perfectly good food away, that was never even touched. Not only would the… Continue

LEARN1: Excess Food

Just the other day I was thinking about all the food that gets thrown out by restaurants/fast foods. There should be some sort of delivery service that goes around and picks up that food and send it over seas. I don't know about you; but if I was hungry/starving person, I would take and eat something a couple days old. Rather than see it go to waste, they can refridgerate it and other things. There is so much food that gets wasted.

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**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. 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.
