New Years Day Parade

January the first came by me once again, but this year the party is different. I'm still overlooking the parade. My friends are drinking the same cocktails. If it weren't for the excitement, the parade below would seem stale. But this year everything seemed fresh and new. The town counsel spend months digging up every tar road for miles, and replacing them with strange slabs. At midnight the electricity was turned off. The band began to play. The march started and in an instant the wh*** town… Continue

Workout to the POWER

Every day I get up at 5:40 and my brother and I hit the gym for a workout. We decided to save the money we would spend every month working out in a regular gym, and bit by bit build up our own home gym.



During the last 2 years our local power company ESKOM (from South Africa) raised their tariffs significantly, and plan on doing so every year for the next 4 years. This made alternative energy production instantly viably.



All our pulley systems, rowing machine, treadmill,… Continue

Moving Windmills

A young man from Malawi spent some time reading about windmills, the knowledge that he gained from this process lead to the adventure of a lifetime, but more importantly, it lead to a revolution for the people around him. Having light at night is something we take for granted so easily. I realized from this story that with a little imagination and the drive to make it happen, nothing is impossible.

Starting a Home Garden

In the spirit of the game I'm building a small tunnel to grow most of my vegetables in a very small space using tiered grow boxes and a solar panel to power the pumps and circulate the air. If this projects works, and once I have perfected the system, I will have a grow system that can be duplicated in any terrain on earth (or maybe not even only on earth) The system is self sustaining and a such do not need expensive infrastructure to be rolled out into the world's most rural locations.

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

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.
