summer solstice

We are in it, but few know, having been disconnected from nature and the real world. For most of human existence, people knew seasonal cycles from direct experience. They paid attention because summer, winter, spring and fall mattered. Today experts tell them what they need to know, there’s an app for that covers much of their research, and food comes from grocery stores completely disconnected in their minds from farmers, agriculture, seasons and shipping technologies. In our location, today is the longest day of the year. Tonight is the shortest night of the year. The sun will not set over The North Pole at all today. The sun will not rise over The South Pole today. Sunrise and sunset will […]

stargazing tonight

Saturn and its rings will be illuminated in sunlight when the planet reaches full tilt in direct opposition to Earth. Stargazers will also be able to compare cloud bands on both Saturn and the giant planet Jupiter, with the best time to catch both planets tipped to be a few hours after sunset, just as Saturn rises and before Jupiter sets. The best views of Saturn will be around midnight… as far away from city lights as you can get. Saturn reached opposition on June 15, when Saturn, Earth and the sun were all in a straight line, with Earth in the middle. Opposition provides the best and closest views of Saturn and several of its brightest moons. To see […]

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 […]

post card from Conner

Warm spring-like, rainy and sunny weather had made all but the drifts of snow disappear. Overnight last night that changed in a big way with about 4 inches of fresh, light, fluffy powder. Picture perfect opportunity not to be missed. Hey, what is all this stuff?
