Craiglist Man

Maybe you use Freecycle, or are an avid product recycler all on your own. It could be you frequent eBay to scavenge, or visit the local dump for those occasional treasures. I use Craigslist personally, which goes to show the nature of some barter systems.

I am not especially well to do, but I have a good deal of... well... junk. I take apart my broken DVD players, alarm clocks, televisions, and anything else to get to those little bits and pieces. A few weeks ago I traded…

Meaty Towers of Goodness

I will be brief, I do not know a single person who has had a good steak and didn't like it. One of those sizzling, perfectly marbled beauties that you don't even season because the person sitting next to you would scold you for ruining a masterpiece.

I also know that, when it comes to energy efficiency, vegetarian and vegan are the tops. Or, really, the bottoms of the energy pyramid ( where there's the most energy! )

I've helped three houses near…

First World World

I have seen a few facts in my days. The average "First World" citizen uses 150 gallons of water every day, while "Third World" citizens struggle to get five. All of the electricity generated over the past 110 years across the world is one only tenth of the energy the Earth receives from the Sun on a daily basis. Hard facts, that show development is important. Sure, sure, it would be nice if the community got tourism, but the real goal is to even the playing field.… Continue

Yea, good point. I wonder if it could be possible if the chemical wasn't detrimental to the environment. But yea, if it were bad for ocean, definitely wouldn't be a good idea! thanks for the feedback!

I don't like the way I think. for every interesting or useful thought, there's a truckload of conventional fault-finding, negative comparison, self-doubt and all that jazz. but hey, I'm human. I think I know what you meant though, and I thank you. peace.

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.
