Volcanic ash - networking stranded travellers

I discovered there is a Facebook group for stranded travellers, that could be a good start for networking opportunities around the globe. From their fronpage message:

"Hundreds of thousands of us are stranded, thanks to billowing ash from Iceland's Mt. Elslksjlaresssrfzzzt. Let's come together, swap stories, keep our spirits up, and offer advice for coping with our situations.

TWITTER: #getmehome #ashtag for up-to-the-minute opportunities

Find HELP in the Country-by-Country threads under the DISCUSSIONS tab (upper center of this page)

Find RIDES at http://www.roadsharing.com

Find LODGING and RIDES via http://spy.appspot.com/find/getmehome

Find BOTH in this group's Discussion tab (above)

MORE HELP at VOLCANOHELP.EU be sure to post there!

Find SANITY by realizing you are doing the best that you possibly can. The volcano is, well, bigger than all of us."

Is it going to be possible to start a skills exchange just for a few days' labour? It would be worthwhile for people who are struggling to pay for extra accomodation and so on. Not sure how to take this forward, any ideas?

Oh-- thanks-- should have known you were on it, Starling! I posted the link to the African discussion on Facebook on your Kenya blog post.

Found these as well: Crisis Mappers, and Crisis Mappers on Twitter, and another Facebook page: Gathering Under the Ash Cloud. From what I see, though, not many people are responding. I think people who are stranded so far are probably just waiting and assuming they'll be underway soon. I wonder if this is true?

Thanks Sarah :) It would be good to start a wiki page to collect all the relevant links up - actually the wiki could be the architecture we need to do a skill-share as well?

Created a page on the wiki for a start, please could you add those links you've found? Or I will do it when I next get a mo, gotta go. x

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

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.
