depopulate the rural northwest

Health officials say the residents of Seeley Lake are experiencing dangerous levels of wildfire smoke that have never before been monitored in Missoula County. Air quality specialists now say it’s essential that residents of Seeley Lake take steps to protect themselves, and they say the most effective way to do that is to leave. Here is a picture of fire and smoke in the northwest today: “Stupid forestry officials” ban logging, thinning and other intelligent management of forests that then become overgrown, flammable and hard to control once fires begin. Why is it so easy to think that people who somehow wormed their way to the top are stupid and foolish, but not think they share sociopathic views with […]

log it or burn it

Here is a map of where the US Forest Service has outlawed renewable timber harvest and planting. The areas highlighted in RED are where people pretending to be fools have crushed generations-old tree farming communities. Families raised in the forested parts of Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Northern California now break up and move to the cities. Handy if you want to control the populace. Nuclear families are bad. Sustainable rural communities are bad. Corporate employees are good. Disarmed city snowflakes are good. Some of us cling to our old values, culture of honor, integrity in our interactions and independence. We get to breath our trees instead of selling them as lumber. The EPA should be a help here, but […]

traveler

This guy has been visiting us lately … much to our visual and spiritual delight. He is pretty shy, spotting me from over a dozen meters away, and flitting off. I had to zoom in with my magical Canon SX-710 from almost 20 meters to capture these photos. We are all three so happy with how pretty our garden looks. It is wonderful to share it with this swallowtail, and for him to grace our garden with his beauty. After reading a bit about their life cycle, I will be letting local milkweed and other beneficials grow a little more freely. I was going to post interesting bits about the Monarch Butterfly, its amazing 4-stage, 4-generation annual life-cycle from Mexico […]

summer solstice

We are in it, but few know, having been disconnected from nature and the real world. For most of human existence, people knew seasonal cycles from direct experience. They paid attention because summer, winter, spring and fall mattered. Today experts tell them what they need to know, there’s an app for that covers much of their research, and food comes from grocery stores completely disconnected in their minds from farmers, agriculture, seasons and shipping technologies. In our location, today is the longest day of the year. Tonight is the shortest night of the year. The sun will not set over The North Pole at all today. The sun will not rise over The South Pole today. Sunrise and sunset will […]

stargazing tonight

Saturn and its rings will be illuminated in sunlight when the planet reaches full tilt in direct opposition to Earth. Stargazers will also be able to compare cloud bands on both Saturn and the giant planet Jupiter, with the best time to catch both planets tipped to be a few hours after sunset, just as Saturn rises and before Jupiter sets. The best views of Saturn will be around midnight… as far away from city lights as you can get. Saturn reached opposition on June 15, when Saturn, Earth and the sun were all in a straight line, with Earth in the middle. Opposition provides the best and closest views of Saturn and several of its brightest moons. To see […]

Is Long Hair Making Us More Intuitive?

 Back in the old days and the ancient times, many cultures embraced people with long hair, because they believed that long hair was a sign of strength and spiritual maturity. The Native Americans and the Chinese are just a few examples of the many cultures that value long hair, which was why the men and women of these cultures back then rarely cut their hair. Even though back then many cultures believed that having long hair was beneficial to the body, is there evidence today that supports the belief that long hair can make a person more intuitive? How long hair can make you more intuitive If you study Nature deeply enough, you should know that Nature would never create […]

wild painkiller

In slang terms, this really is WILD! A weed right under our noses that is so useful it ought to be outlawed. I hate to say that for a couple of reasons, but I do suggest that you get some seed to work with before your protectors take it away. I post it here to help insure its availability, but all the links are from the source article at Before It’s News.com. You might want to go there to see the article in its natural habitat and original form.

forestry, husbandry

In the ‘bad old days’ we called it “HUSBANDRY” (the judicious use of resources) and “CONSERVATION” (careful preservation and protection of something; especially : planned management of a natural resource to prevent exploitation, destruction, or neglect) … or, more often than not, COMMON SENSE. Farmers, and most people were farmers, took good care of their land such that their family could grow, prosper and enjoy the same lifestyle for generations to come. Short term, selfish thinkers wasted the resources and moved on. Stewards of the Earth outlasted and took over from them. Then the merger of corporate and state (definition of FASCISM) butted in. Government took land. Government agents leased it to their friends, their sponsors and their benefactors. […]
