A crash course in changing the world.

Act 1 : Hero : Tad Agoglia and The First Response Team of America

I choose you Tad!

Many of you many know of Tad and The First Response Team through CNN:Heroes. I've been following The First Response Team for about 2 years now via their website http://www.firstresponseteam.org/

As soon as I heard about this organization, I bonded immediately. I had a similar idea many years back to do what they do on a much smaller level. Tad had a much larger vision, and means to make it happen. I do though, still have hopes of one day belonging to this organization to fight along side such a visionary.

This group might be a retroactive organization, but nonetheless a needed one. Destruction gives way to rebirth, and after destruction the one of the first steps to renewed life is clean-up. The generous contributions of soooo many people have afforded The First Response Team the capacity to helping people in need after disasters like hurricanes, floods, icestorms, mudslides, tornadoes, wild fires, and even earthquakes like the one in Haiti. With no cost to the people, they help get the balling rolling on starting over for people whom have lost so much and have little to start with.

If you look at the website link, you'll see all the equipment at their disposal to do what they do best. This equipment is generously donated from many companies along with the monetary contributions that goes towards maintaining all that equipment.

While The Response Team is base here in America, Tad had a vision to one day make it international. His dream of having this organziation helping other countries in need came quicker than expected with the Haiti earthquake. He immediately responsed as well as donators to help get equipment to Haiti to do their part.

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.

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.
