President Trump is Mr. M. Burns

Filed under: my Liturgy, Observations — Tags: , , — work in progress @ 3:10 am

I will propose that President Trump is Mr. Burns incarnate by the flesh. Since this is a spiritual transfer, its not going to be a one for one identical image. Burns is 2 dimensional and President Trump is 1 dimensional. Regardless, there are some facets that are common to both.

Neither one is very into technological tools or has the propensity to use them. Burns uses a ticker, has never been seen to type or handle electronic devices. Except when he had girlfriend. President Trump says he doesn’t email or know to use a a computer. Courier only.  But that does make him a hard target. There is the Blackberry device, but let it be caveat, not a definite stop in the process.

Next is the gestures between the two blokes. One uses his fingers like he is tasting fine wine or emphasizes his point of non sequitur. Monty has his steeple made of both hands while giving his catchphrase.  If only the President would have stick to one with a sinister tone then the point would be moot.

Trump == Burns < (Burns: style, wit and Smithers)

But the President does have a bromance with Putin. Go figure.

Seeds are planted

Filed under: Garden — work in progress @ 5:00 am

Me and mom started to plan some seeds for the fall garden. This after me and family friend dumped some wood bark, vermiculite and peat into 1 garden and then on the other garden, it was just plain compost and vermiculite. Will do a project to see which garden does best. I see many a spider web but no spiders along with lizards. From the readings, there must be a balance between insects, the food and your tolerance. I like to think I have a high tolerance for pain and other things. So I usually leave the webs alone and the cats get the lizards. I have saved some and lost others. Right now, my little female is gone dormant, for now. I have some starter plants and will try to get them planted tonite. The nights are cooler now so I don’t think the plants will heat up as bad in the day. Will shall see.

Goodwill idea

Filed under: Aspects, Observations, Uncategorized — work in progress @ 7:46 am

I had an idea for Goodwill to help them cycle more and create more opportunity to engage geeks and techies.

The inventory they keep needs to have an RFID like technology embedded into the product. Use that to keep a database. Have that information online to anyone via a device to find it. Take pics or descriptions of high end items or featured for the day or week would help drive traffic to the store. Dont’ have it reserved via electronic queue but instead say its available. That way people have to enter the store, more foot traffic.

Anyway its an idea. Help people become tech engaged, help create tech literacy, people with an eye for art to display product online, etc.

Suiting up each mornin

Filed under: my Liturgy, Observations, randomness — work in progress @ 7:39 am

So each morning, I try to say ‘blue sky’. This is the positive to start the day. Does it work?
I think it does.

Then when I get to work, I think about bout putting on armor of light ice blue, full, flourished helmet, with an Aztec shield of an eagle. Really spiffy.  Proud and defiant it is.

I have to considering with who I work with. But I can only control myself. So I do and I try. I leave the area better than when I came in the morning. Nothing more, nothing less. I try to learn something everyday to keep the mind active. I read and do, meditate in the morning and avoid junk food, mostly. I keep looking forward to the exit strategy made in the nebulous conscious because there has to be a  back up plan A, B, C…. Seasons change as I age, time finds me looking ahead and haunted by the past because I feel like the mistakes outnumber the wins. Eventually all those images get dimmed when I go to sleep at night, the demons will sometimes come out but mostly they get ignored. I am tool old, too tired and don’t have time for them. Instead I dream of different things, people, family, cats and storms. Then I do it again, again, again, again, again, forever and ever, rest in peace.

Connections

Filed under: Garden, randomness — work in progress @ 7:24 am

There are groups of trees or similar types connected by roots or other types of biological methods.  I have also seen plant roots be noncompetitive with their own kind.  My trees were planted on the edge of the land. I wonder if they have been cooperating. I have seen them take more limbs and become taller. The wind storms tried to uproot some of them but I trimmed and pruned to let the air through their arms. In doing this I have become stronger and more adapt outdoors. I walk around them and see them, touch their bark and care for them. Does the ground connect us now or am I able to hear them talk as the wind blows the leaves, rustling, rushing, breathing. Their roots move slowly through the clay, breaking it.  Ultra, ultra low frequency must be occurring in the ground traveling to my feet as a reach for them, guiding my hand.

Ripple size.

Filed under: Aspects, Observations — work in progress @ 7:46 am

As some where agonizing the change being denied and others relieved from the reject, I had an insight about change.  This small act of refusal to sign a law is a small seed.  From that seed grows the stalk to a trunk forming a shade to alter those around it.  I sensed the shift.  There were those who wanted to preserve the world they knew.  They tried to make a change.  But others wanted to continue the shift.  Little changes, they must be stopped.  If you dont they ripple and those ripples change the image we see.  Its why refusal to accept is akin to surrender,  its already too late.

Mulche, mulche

Filed under: Garden — work in progress @ 9:39 am

Thanks to my instructor, I have found a place that distributes free mulch for the taking.  Close to work and full Mexicans, I feel at home. I have done 3 loads so far and the old lady is happy.  I don’t know how long it will take to alter the soil in the back.

My compost is getting full of just fruit, vegetables, paper, bark, leaves and insects.  Its moist again.  I will probably try to add some earthworms soon. Its for the best. Just have to keep at it. Over and over, again and again.

Mesquite trees, plants and herbs

Filed under: Garden, Observations — work in progress @ 8:54 pm

My mesquite trees are now expanding and appear to be on the edge of uncontrollable.  Front tree is bulging out and needs to be trimmed again. I wanted it top heavy but maybe tall. I have to work on it. My back  trees need to be pruned. One is now to heavy to the side and leaning. Kinda of worried but its nature. The gardens are cycling through there course and while 1 is in twilight, the next middle aged, youngest one is exploding.  Strange how life is displayed in the 3 gardens.  I know nothing is forever and they have provided but they  are not immortal. I remember Carl Sagans’ Cosmos quote about how early astronomers believed the stars to be forever.  Cycles.  For every ending is a beginning so maybe there is no line but a being.  I am sure security forces touched on this when they scream, “We don not die, we regroup in Hell.”  The herbs living in the container are having a hard time getting established. Trying different methods to get them to propregrate and live.  Some have the will and some dont.  Accept it.

support and self reliance

Filed under: Observations, randomness — work in progress @ 9:19 am

So I get it from my friends who have adult kids.  They want to make it easier and support their children throughout life, or not.   What can I say?

I don’t believe in it and always ask them to adopt me because I can cook AND clean.   Or at the very least give me a stipend.

Something the Marines tell the recruits resonates in me when I hear them say they continue to support their children.  Its like this, ‘comfort is an illusion, it robs the mind and soul of determination.’  Better to guide them than to regal them with decisions.  Better to have choices than questions about when is the next dole.  They say I am bitter and hurt on the inside.

True, maybe.  But I don’t run to mommy and daddy when I got bills and a family.  I determine my fate and do not answer to anyone for my decisions.

Gardens

Filed under: Garden, Observations — work in progress @ 8:43 am

Although my knee is out i am still going out to the gardens. Setup 2 new ones around the backyard.  Tomatoes are coming in strong. Did a map to start doing some drip irrigation.   Now have to get some copies started on paper to plan the pipes.  Otherwise its been nice here with some low temps  compared to years past.  Didn’t know abou the red peppers till it was almost too late.  They were hot and bright red.  Then the green onions came in. Had some for dinner with chicken. Nice.
