Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

It's the beginning of spring. You can't tell this from the outside: snow and cold, people in coats, naked forest. What tell me, that it is spring again, is a rush in my blood and a sun in my window. And traditional 8 march barbecue in the forest near my house, we do it, I donno, 12 years in a raw already? Old friends and new friends, poartners, families, babies, all the closest community start to come, it's going to be a 25-30 people party. We are equipped with warm clothes, good foods, recycled packs and biofuels, fun games and music.

We have ordered all the food (vegetables and fruits, meat, fish, bread) from local farmers (direct market linkage between local rural farmers and urban residents through web platform; network scaled model, which helped to revive the wh*** agriculture industry in Russia, step by step), and going to make simple but very tasty grilled staff. When food is fresh, you don't really need to cook it strongly.

I remember I was thinking, whats gonna be in the future, and get to imagine some amazing futuristic staff. Well I must admit, that I enjoy gadget-filled, network-based, web-connected way of modern living, freeconomics & social enterpreneurship, ever evolving human beings, genetic discoveries, movement from consumer experience to human experience, co-creation of things together with producers, web-shared knowledge and direct connection between producers and target audiences, which lead finally to slightly more efficient markets (who could guess, they do exist?!) but it's so great to have a simple barbecue in the forest =)

8th March, women's day :)) great day for celebration in healthy environment. I am just wondering if in Russia you have started recycling garbage?

Well, you know, I somehow decided, that the day doesn;t worth that much of attention and transformed it into friends meeting and spring celebration day inside my circle =))
Yes,surely, quiet for some time, not around the wh*** country though.

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.
