Tallahassee trees.

Yes, choices.  When thousands of trees cuts off power for up to a week, choices will have to be made!


...from the tallahassee democrat newspaper.....http:// www.tallahassee.com
.........
....."While more than 70,000 city utilities customers lost power with Hermine, service was restored to 90 percent within three days. The final customer in the dark wasn't powered up until Sunday afternoon, according to the city's power outage map.

“On the trees, I have to say it’s going to be, I suspect, a pretty aggressive conversation that will have to take place in our community,” Gillum said during a Tallahassee Democrat virtual town hall meeting last week. “My guess is we have to make some important decisions in the coming several months of what we are going to do about our tree situation.”
...........

I can remember when I was about ten years old, they cut a half mile of healthy maple trees down, along the road, so that snow drifts would not block the roads.  I cried.   
   But now there will be choices.  What will happen if tallahassee sees a 110 mph storm?!   Probably you go crash with relatives in Atlanta for six months and you hope that after those six months when power is restored your house has not been looted or water damaged inside!
FSU the colleges closed for a year, while you are at it, find a job there in Atlanta as your place of employment is also blown away!  Then live there in Atlanta!

At least, how about burying the power lines underground, along the canopy roads.
At most, maybe It Is Time to cut down the canopy road trees and make these roads four lane.
If you have trees, they will fall upon your house, sooner or later!

I had a nephew, once, experience that along the New York  state road , they were very aggressively removing trees and removing hedgerows.  This road runs along the lake , for the most  part and has a bit milder winter.  Many people live along this road for that reason, easier to get to work.  
   First off, they removed a heritage purple raspberry patch.  Then next day, a walnut tree, on his front lawn, was removed, without them asking him!  Tree was on the road right of way!  Eminent  domain...
Months later, he got a very good job at Cornell university!   He discovered WHY they removed these trees and plants!  To stop the snow drifts from blocking the road at 7 am, when he and the other hundreds of people drove to work!  He "voted", thusly, for road clearances!
In a way, one now is supposed to buy your raspberries at the big grocery store, raspberries from maybe Central America.  That is what NAFTA is for, the trade agreement.  There are now more important things in life than heritage raspberries!  If these berries are so important, you would have to change all of your life, completely, to embrace them!    No commutes, wife stay at home to raise the kids, you and she spend over half hour time with food raising and preparing and no media entertainment.
Read....1880!

I grit my teeth when ever I hear a chainsaw.  Another tree bites the dust.   But I see the Proper House.
Only grass, not even a tree or bush along the property lines.  No bushes along the house, they shade the walls and cause rot and mold.
Just grass.    Bury your power lines .  Harden your house against winds.  
There are probably many Midwest communities where the sign at the town limits might as well say...." Welcome to windy hill, pop. 4,700, Certified Tree Free"!  The next town over was killed by a tornado...one of those town killers.

Talking too much?!

My last nights dream was not nice, though.  The nurse woke me up at the end of it, a not nice dream.

It was a play on my standard.....going back and forth from...to....tallahassee, Interlaken, to Tallahassee....etc...etc...
Only this dream was where I returned from Tallahassee  and went to childhood home and found father living there alone. The house seemed also to be my aunt Betty,s house next door too, this brings a "spiritual" vector into the dream, objectively true, too, in some manner.
Ugh!
Father was out back chopping down dead trees into firewood.  All of the trees are dead.  The sky was dark gray, the atmosphere was oppressive.  The farmhouse felt like one of those horror stories you read of, a reclusive old man living in a run down farmhouse in poverty and filth. He lives alone, dies at 90 years old, then rhe relatives or the county find out how messy his house is!  
Filth, dirt, overflowing toilets, half eaten food sitting there for months .....

I wished I could just turn around and go back to Tallahassee!  Alas, I have now no money, having spent it all.  No money for gas, for rents.  I am stuck here.
Inside, father was baking some kind of black biscuits.  More like cakes.  Hundreds of them, in several pans.   As the nurse comes in, I resigned my self to helping him, gritty accepting my dreary future.....
Ugh!

After the nurse left, I lay back and dreamed a few more minutes.  Here now I was Told, Shown, by a faceless Someone, that I should take a pan of these cakes and go to the local school and go to the first grade and distribute them to the children in that first grade.  As this segment ends, I was doing just that.
....my soul giving me a solution to my dream problem!


When i, went to breakfast, I came into somethings strange but very very telling.  I have trouble swallowing if I talk and eat.  Often I just want to sit there and think, not talk, while eating, or to enjoy my food, as it is food OR talk...or think!
  My 93 year old seatmate  , the only other person at my table so far, asked me if I were angry with him for some reason!  I said....no.  Then he says....you have SUCH interesting stories and life experiences and while I have had these too, like of walking across part of Europe in ww ii, your tales and stories, of your life experiences, I find so interesting that I want to hear more and of late I have seen that you have stopped telling them to me and not talking with me!

I then told him about my chewing and swallowing problems and then I said...." You know, R....., in a way, I have had the distinct feeling, here at the health center, that as most people cannot respond to conversations, but that they can hear me, and that they want to pay attention to life and the living, that I really OUGHT to give hours of constant discourse, endless talking, even if about the weather, so to give Comfort to all of these wheelchair, often dementia, people!

.....

So I told him some stories....I mentioned too how my talking often got me in trouble, like at Suannas mountain home, down the road a couple moved to a cabin on a mountain top and I would often see them at the store.  He fought her here from the big city.   I was told, just as I was packing up Suanna,s stuff to move, told that he really disliked me!  Why?  My talking to his wife, got her to pine for her urban days and now she wants to leave him to return to the big city.  He being a controlling type of man, I can sense trouble coming!

Ah, the dream!   The dreary house and surroundings is the health center, people's and the cakes are me bringing them to first grade as most residents here are in spiritual first grade.  

I guess I should talk more.....sigh...and maybe to begin to talk more like a preacher, a minister, that good old time religion.  That is ADVANCED STUFF , that fundamentalist religion!  It's way way way above most people,s spiritual development!     
Most people here cannot understand a thing, of course, often not their fault at all as the monkey on their backs, eating memory for food, the dementia  ....
Thus maybe just to .Talk.   Minutes upon minutes of just talking and maybe asking questions to get them to open up a bit to answer me.  

I am not good at giving discourses!

Some people have criticized me for talking too much!  I guess I really should talk far far more!  But more about the person that I am talking with!  But I can see this coming now...that I really "should" give discourses to all of the people waiting in line for mealtime, for instance, much like some India Guru giving discourse to his devotees!   They , here, tend to be lonely, and want stimulation and companionship, even if one sided.   Like that lady who cries like a baby, often, crying for her daughter to come to see her.  But she was just here yesterday!  Alas, five minutes after she left, the short term memory is now GONE!  Thus she never visits.  The only "solution" is to have that daughter be here with her every single second of every single hour, all day, week, months, long!

Fluoride in water causes diabetes and dementia? What?!

Ah, here is another amazing internet article.  The study has now appeared in many journals.

"The new study examined the links between water fluoridation and Type 2 diabetes, which has reached epidemic proportion in the United States. The numbers of people with the disease have almost quadrupled in the last three decades and are still rising. The study, which was published in the Journal of Water and Health, found that fluoridation with sodium fluoride could be contributing to the rise in diabetes."

http://www.newsmax.com/Health/Health-News/fluoride-link-diabetes-water/2016/08/18/id/744159/

Ahem!
Either one of two things are at work here!

One...finally someone has found a link between fluoride, added to water, and future health problems and those Cult like anti-fluoride have been right all along and that we all should pay deep attention to ALL of these conspiracy rants, they are right and the experts are wrong.  What next?  Vaccinations cause autism?  The US government blew up the trade center?  Contrails from airplanes do make us all ill?   Global warning is really being caused by the sun heating up?  Nicotine is the most life support compound known , light up a cig today!!

Or...

Two...finally the anti-fluoride people, after years of trying, have found something to justify their rants!
And THIS means something even WORSE!  That anything can be proven true and false.  ANYTHING!  Global warming, trump or Clinton, every news article, every study, every expert, has a bias and an agenda and no one can ever be bias free!   And every rant person can prove his or her point, just ask them, they will spend four hours talking non stop and that you will believe!  

Here is a more profound study about fluoride and diabetes and dementia!

Regression analyses suggest association between increases in consumption of fluoridated water and type 2 diabetes

Neurosurgeon Dr. Blaylock, author of The Blaylock Wellness Report, has warned of the dangers of fluoridated water for years, and believes it can cause a wide range of diseases. "Degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s are possibly linked to drinking fluoridated water," he

The Ultimate authority figure that you cannot get away from!

Hi all.

Yes, how would one get away from these authority figures?

A couple of weeks ago, someone wrote to me a letter describing how she is moving to a Community of new age spiritual people.  The leader has been criticized, by some, as a cult leader.
I looked this leader, and his group, up.   I found first the website and right on the tin I saw a sentence that made my hair stand on end....he wrote, right on the introduction of the "about" page, this....
"Anyone who criticizes my leadership or our beliefs, even to themselves, why the backlash will come back onto fhem, with Gods wrath, to make the person have a very long period of negative experiences, as a reflective backlash "!

That saying was bad enough, but what I read in yet another book, also scares me.  Was a book that is a collection of channeled messages from very high up masters.  The highest of the high, masters that came through the theosophist society,s mediums.
One of them wrote...."if you criticize any of these masters works, even to your self, silently, and not even tell others, to criticize in words or feelings, the backlash will indeed come back to hurt you and your life!   Do not criticize our teachings, you will get a reflective backlash from it"!  

OUCH!
Wince.....

The ultimate authority figures....no escape.  If they are true, you have to BELIVE, or else, Very Bad Things will happen in your life!  

Perhaps the bible and fundamentalism is really the only way to go, if one wants a spiritual path!
Jesus never said something like this.  The fundamentalists say that EVERY channeled ,or medium given,  message, is really from Devils under Satan!  In fact my internet provider bans alternate religion sites, every one that is on their list, probably for a good reason!

When I die and if I find that the entire afterlife is filled with masters with this idea, I might very well find a tunnel  to go quickly down into hell!  I might be happy there.

Well, to join a group of people who follow such a master, is also dangerous for other reasons.  The sect,s beliefs often, like Christianity, comes with Baggage!  Like if you were to join this Community, they all might tell you to eat certain foods and if you do not, you will invoke the wrath of the leader!

But when so called high level masters give such warnings, I interest in new age ideas calls greatly!
These two quotes, in my words, has got to be the ultimate authority trip!
Even under an earthly dictator, one could think and feel one,s own thoughts. Here, you cannot !
