Many people will walk in and out of your life,
But only true friends will leave footprints
in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses much more;
He who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can’t live long enough to make
them all yourself.
Friends, you and me…
You brought another friend…
And then there were 3…
We started our group…
Our circle of friends…
And like that circle…
There is no beginning or end…
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.

Unknown, not Eleanor Roosevelt
Quoted by Eleanor Roosevelt’s grandson David Roosevelt in the book Grandmère: A Personal History of Eleanor Roosevelt

Leaves of Grass Walt Whitman

What chemistry!
That the winds are really not infectious,
That this is no cheat, this transparent green-wash of the sea which is
so amorous after me,
That it is safe to allow it to lick my naked body all over with its
That it will not endanger me with the fevers that have deposited
themselves in it,
That all is clean forever and forever,
That the cool drink from the well tastes so good,
That blackberries are so flavorous and juicy,
That the fruits of the apple-orchard and the orange-orchard, that
melons, grapes, peaches, plums, will none of them poison me,
That when I recline on the grass I do not catch any disease,
Though probably every spear of grass rises out of what was once
catching disease.

Now I am terrified at the Earth, it is that calm and patient,
It grows such sweet things out of such corruptions,
It turns harmless and stainless on its axis, with such endless
successions of diseas'd corpses,
It distills such exquisite winds out of such infused fetor,
It renews with such unwitting looks its prodigal, annual, sumptuous
It gives such divine materials to men, and accepts such leavings from
them at last.

Slow food

This is good to share, to much for me and the birds.
There is a sharing system a que gaes back a few trees.
Jump the que and listen
Help, Bring a container.
Another yummie pie

Vermiponic biorecycling

As time goes by this system is moving from an idea to a reality.
We all need to understand the carbon & nitrogen cycle. A system that we are embedded in. So far we don't do to well.
This may offer some solutions.

Walt Whitman introduction to the first edition of Leaves of Grass.

Love the earth and sun and the animals,
Despise riches,
Give alms to everyone that asks,
Stand up for the stupid and crazy,
Devote your income and labour to others,
Hate tyrants,
Argue not concerning God,
Have patience and indulgence toward the people,
Take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men,
Go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with mothers of Families,
Read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life,
Re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book,
Dismiss whatever insults your own soul;

and your flesh shall be a great poem, and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.

Walt Whitman in the introduction to the first edition of Leaves of Grass.

Shiting in water

Shitting in water
Create a list of animals that shit in water
Create a list of animals that don't shit in water.
Strange how we (humans ) shit in water and then wont drink it
Not very intelligent are we.
Give this a moment thought will you !!!
My dog won’t shit in water; he doesn't need a nuclear plant to power a desalinater
Dogs must be more intelligent than humans
