We had snowstorm last night, still looking for part of my greenhouse, power out till this morning, all morning to get the city's treatment plant running again. Came in to rest and watched a documentary on sustainable farming, we farmed like this 50 yrs ago, some of the problems that cause problems with the toxic life we live, is addressed here, my belief is that the majority of man has divorced himself from the land. I continually look for answers, found some here. Sustainable, Documentary on Netflix. Sandhill cranes, arrived back yesterday, geese too, horned owl has been chasing tail in my backyard, hope spring is here, been a rough winter!
I've been called various names in my life, White trash, shit kicker, clod hopper, hillbilly, redneck, there is a difference by the way, the hill folk, and flat lander, I'm more of the hill variety, first time for me to be thought a Hebrew. I will clarify, the name Ishmael means outsider, hostile, has a beef with everyone, look it up on Wikipedia, which pretty much sums me up, even with my family, in school as a youth, at work. I also was very ill in my youth, if it had not been for my reading habits, would have graduated from high school at 20. I read many books, one was Moby Dick, my favorite.
Dodged the Grim Reaper, twice before this illness, a dog dragged me for a quarter mile, my hand under his collar, my father trained bird dogs, was trying to catch a unruly retriever for my dad, smashed my head into a very solid building, but my hand came free, I was 5. Was trapped under water in a barrel, a dumb kid pushed me in a creek, it landed open end down, wedged in the rocks, enough mud to create suction, my small arms too weak to escape, the water got up to my chin, lucky for me my father saw the kid run up the road, came to investigate, drank some ditch water, but my Dad saved my life. This formed some of me, and my beliefs, it's all good, learned so much, is why I joined you gentlemen on this blog, to teach and learn, learned a lot more because of fellow bloggers, still have no concrete idea why I joined, Yet, Sam, as some Americans I'm a mutt, Norse, Neanderthal, Cherokee, Welch, Scotch, possibly Jew, will do a DNA test, so you can be more precise.
Thanks Sam, Ishmael.
The Z man is on a roll, James you have talked of this, here we are.
My son was flying international, guy next to him was talkative, mid range adviser for commercial real estate, commented on next possible bankruptcy, he was worried.
Read the Foundation series, 25 yrs ago, may prove to be a bullseye for the Z man. The beltway is rabid, will be had to put the mad dogs down.
Desperate times, apparently touched by the great white one! Please kid, cut them off now before it's too late!
