Late Spring

I realised it’s been a while since I’ve shown any photos of the farm, so here’s what we found when we took a walk this morning.  Enjoy :-)

The Poet Mj.

On Saturday 18th October, The Poet Mj performed at The Bookshop in Robe to an appreciative crowd of locals and visitors.  She has recently returned from competing in the Australian Poetry Slam 2014, which is now in its ninth year.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHer poetry ranges from the story of a tea-bag, to the love of her life, and everything inbetween.  I love it!

The story of the Dalek in the garden was absolutely hilarious, and generated discussion about a Dalek that had been sighted in Robe some time back.  It’s quite true – I’ve got a photo of it in my archives!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMj’s performance poetry certainly pleased this long time resident of Robe.

I was thrilled to be in attendance also.  :-)


Just right

Do you remember the story of Goldilocks?    I felt a little like her when I was looking at some buses……

Nudge nudge wink wink…. what follows is both a clue and a red herring to my mysterious future plans :-)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA bit too far gone….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA bit too short……very sweet though.

Sweden: Let Professor Johansson continue crucial work!

Ceccatelli, Ingvardsson and Garmager at Karolinska Institute, Sweden: Let Professor Johansson continue crucial work!

Why this is important

The Karolinska Institute for the second time wants to reduce the space allocated to the brilliant Olle Johansson, Associate professor, The Experimental Dermatology Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, in order to down-size his work.

Professor Olle Johansson’s scientific work is impeccable. He possesses huge capacity, competence and brilliance as a world-renowned scientist and researcher into electromagnetic radiation (EMF/EMR) and its adverse health effects. He is helping millions of people world-wide. ( See as an example of his work, the recent scientific paper at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25205214 and this presentation

And yet, Karolinska, the cradle of the Nobel Prize, wants to reduce his work space. Karolinska’s decision can therefore only be an acting on behalf of the obvious interests of the telecom industry to shut up one of the most truth-seeking and incorruptible EMF/EMR researchers and critical voices in the world. Because Olle Johansson’s research documents without any doubt…

Pioneer Spirit: A Message from Leafa.

eremophila:

Fascinating.

Leafa PercyLeafa Numbers was my paternal grandmother. We had a chat this week. She was born in 1888 in a sod shanty in Kansas.

A graduate student doing research about the pioneers who settled North Dakota interviewed some nursing home residents in 1976. I got a tape of my grandmother’s interview back then and my cassette player promptly ate it. Technology returned her to me this week, in the form of a cd. I would have recognized her voice anywhere.

My great-grandfather Elias Numbers was just a bit too young to fight in the Civil War, like his older brother did. After he married and started a family, they moved from Kansas to Iowa in a covered wagon, then on to Illinois where he lost his wife and two of his daughters to Typhoid Fever. Then on to Missouri. Leafa hired out to work for other families and never finished school.

There is so much happening in the world at present that many of you are struggling to keep abreast of all the doom and gloom, with the war machine ramping up into full steam ahead and governments failing to really listen to the will of the people.

Of course it is as much about money, power and control, as all the previous slaughter on this struggling little planet. Make no mistake, there are forces of evil at work…and they are ALL man made…there is NOTHING supernatural about them!

The bigger picture is, as it always was, about life on this small, perfectly designed  and formed Sacred Earth.

This is what is important…the sacredness of Mother Earth.

How much longer can the Great Mother tolerate the slash and burn tactics used by the criminal elite?

When governments and government funded (through tax breaks) corporations, are not slashing and burning the Earth…
