I’m reusing titles now… that should be fun.
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do. Once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, “and what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures or conversations?”
So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
There was nothing so very remarkable in that, nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!”
But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket and looked at it and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet,
for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket,
or a watch to take out of it, and,
burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole, under the hedge.
In another moment, down went Alice after it!
The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down what seemed to be a very deep well.
Looks like things are heating up!
Tuesday, August 17, 2010Alex Jones talks with David MacMichael, a former CIA analyst who also served as an analyst for the National Intelligence Council from 1981-1983. MacMichael resigned from the CIA in July 1983 because he felt the Agency was misrepresenting intelligence for political reasons. He is a member of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, founding member of Association of National Security Alumni and the Association for Responsible Dissent, and an outspoken critic of the Iraq War. Mr. MacMichael talks with Alex about the impending attack on Iran.
Today, CNN reported that President Obama’s Tuesday address failed because it was written at a 10th grade level and, therefore, too smart for us idiot Americans. Tonight, Stephen Colbert dumbed it down in the most hilarious way possible. Video inside.
I needed a square u bolt type clamp to go around a 4"X 4" and a 2" piece of pvc. I knew I had bought a couple years ago that I never used but I could not find them. Found them at a big box store for nine dollars and change and thought it was crazy. Came back home and started digging and eventually found the the two clamps I had bought between 1996 and 1999. Price sticker was still on them like new. Price then? 0.89 cents each. Figure that rate of inflation with no possible hedonic changes. Same story for 3/4" brass ball valves, unions or any other fittings. I guess bankers and government statisticians find it easy to believe the low inflation myth. If you deal on a daily basis with basic items not subject to a hedonic adjustment you know the real story on inflation. Unfortunately my income has not had the same rate of change. Oh well, we'll survive whatever comes. It sure is hard to enlighten other people about what is happening to them and their standard of living and what comes next.

Impossible to say it could have been worse under the circumstances but maybe so. How can they tell he was the one who shot the tanks?
I guess if a suburban homeowner had a septic tank/field (and sufficient water for flushing) it may be OK for a time but the tank fills up too. We would probably see a more contemporary version (or maybe just a plain old-fashioned version) of the outhouse start popping up after an extended time without power. Many folks don't realize that poop doesn't always flow downhill (except perhaps in the corporate world).
If you're interested in a graphic depiction of (broader) activity, this is informative IMO.
Click the "latest earthquakes" icon/link for an interesting map view of the "ring of fire" activity.
Good update as usual. You hit the nail on the head with your observations on the propaganda we are being fed. Seems clear to me this latest go round from Charlottesville to the destruction of historical monuments is an engineered ruse and somebody must be really worried so they have to construct a meme to lead people by the nose.
Great plantings you have. I planted zinnia's for the first time this year. The butterflies absolutely love them and I have seen butterflies in my yard like I saw when I was a little kid. So maybe there is still hope, "plant it and they will come". I'm saving the seed heads of the the dried plants so I can plant many more next year. Mason bees seem to like them also but they like a lot of of things and are great pollinators. Milkweed will also be on the list a well as a few other things. It is a small thing, but in my little corner of the world it is visibly helping these pollinating species to survive and hopefully thrive. It also makes me very happy and gives me a closeness with my God and this magnificent beautiful place he has created and given to us. Good luck and blessings to all.
Stefan gets it exactly right as usual. Pity more people don't understand that you don't throw a brick into somebody's head just because you don't like their beliefs,speech or their skin color.AuthorPostsViewing 10 posts - 1 through 10 (of 62,845 total)
