Is Long Hair Making Us More Intuitive?

 Back in the old days and the ancient times, many cultures embraced people with long hair, because they believed that long hair was a sign of strength and spiritual maturity. The Native Americans and the Chinese are just a few examples of the many cultures that value long hair, which was why the men and women of these cultures back then rarely cut their hair. Even though back then many cultures believed that having long hair was beneficial to the body, is there evidence today that supports the belief that long hair can make a person more intuitive? How long hair can make you more intuitive If you study Nature deeply enough, you should know that Nature would never create […]

wild painkiller

In slang terms, this really is WILD! A weed right under our noses that is so useful it ought to be outlawed. I hate to say that for a couple of reasons, but I do suggest that you get some seed to work with before your protectors take it away. I post it here to help insure its availability, but all the links are from the source article at Before It’s News.com. You might want to go there to see the article in its natural habitat and original form.

forestry, husbandry

In the ‘bad old days’ we called it “HUSBANDRY” (the judicious use of resources) and “CONSERVATION” (careful preservation and protection of something; especially : planned management of a natural resource to prevent exploitation, destruction, or neglect) … or, more often than not, COMMON SENSE. Farmers, and most people were farmers, took good care of their land such that their family could grow, prosper and enjoy the same lifestyle for generations to come. Short term, selfish thinkers wasted the resources and moved on. Stewards of the Earth outlasted and took over from them. Then the merger of corporate and state (definition of FASCISM) butted in. Government took land. Government agents leased it to their friends, their sponsors and their benefactors. […]

Diary of a snow shoveler

probable location – North East This tale pops up from time to time. It is descriptive of a pattern familiar to those of us in snow country. It is also exaggerated in the extreme. Nevertheless, if you have lived a winter, or several with four genuine, distinct seasons, you will empathize. If you haven’t, it really does go a bit like this. – Ted December 8 – 6:00 PM It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses Print. So romantic we felt like newlyweds again. I love […]

Bitterroot River morning

Just a pleasant diversion in a world that is not always this pretty. I recommend you turn your sound up a bit and put this on full screen for a minute.

warming up

After a few weeks of afternoon temperatures well above freezing, the ice is finally gone from our driveway and roads. That enabled me to get my bicycle out of the shed and take it for it’s first ride of the year. The tires had given up a little air over the winter. I didn’t even bother to refill. They weren’t low enough to cause any harm, just increase their rolling resistance. Said another way, I had to pedal harder and couldn’t go as fast as I would be able to were they properly inflated. No loss at all. The point was to spend TIME outside and to push the pedals for exercise. Neither distance traveled nor speed of travel were […]
