And it is not our object to destroy civilization. We do not desire to “divide up,” as people are in the habit of saying; we do not wish to throw humanity back into barbarism; on the contrary, we desire to lift the whole of humanity to the highest thinkable plane of civilization. We wish every individual without exception to have a share in the means of culture and education according to his capacities and his needs. This is the loftiest ideal that the human race can set before itself; and this ideal is possible today because it is only now that, in consequence of the thousands of years of progress towards civilization and of the tremendous acquisitions which man has gained in this age of culture; because only now are all the means and possibilities given through which we may realize this ideal condition in the way that the majority of men desire to realize it.
August Bebel, Socialism and the Student (1905)

- TV rots the senses in the head! It kills the imagination dead! It clogs and clutters up the mind! It makes a child so dull and blind. He can no longer understand a fantasy, A fairyland! His brain becomes as soft as cheese! His powers of thinking rust and freeze! An excerpt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, By Roald Dahl, 1964

New research finds Pb is the hidden villain behind violent crime, lower IQs, and even the ADHD epidemic. And fixing the problem is a lot cheaper than doing nothing.
“High childhood exposure damages a part of the brain linked to aggression control and “executive functions.” And the impact turns out to be greater among boys.”….
Read this very important story and the others at Mother Jones on lead. Then act. We eat ground flaxseed for this very reason. There may be other herbal cleaners. What do you do to protect your family?
We have finally identified our orphan duck! She is a Black-bellied Whistling Duck! She is not endangered, except when the hawks fly over. Listen to the audio of the video and you will hear her wonderful unique whistle.
Below are some shots from our duck.
I hope the great change will bring an end to the oppression of women, children, poor, old and young. The poor will become satisfied and the wealthy will have what they need.
I hope the wars, known and unknown, all of them will end. I hope the people will be free, full and just. That the workers of the world, their children and families will be free of the chains of greed. They will share in all things.
I hope that the oppressors of our time will be driven away to a place of their own making, complete with polluted air, dirty water, hunger, homelessness, crime, war, lots of prescription drugs with empty promises to stupefy their pain just out of reach and fear of the coming days.
I hope that tomorrow will bring about a path back to a clean and wonderful place that we can all be proud of called Earth. A giving mother that we have beaten to death but she always forgives, renews herself and gives us more.
I hope the great change is just that, A GREAT CHANGE.
There are many elements of this shot that are delicate. If you look closely there are bits of pollen on the petals.
These are my beautiful bees filling their new comb with soon to be honey.
