Days then weeks go by, and still I haven’t posted any updates….. sorry. So here’s a very brief one. Things are progressing on all fronts. Slower than I’d have liked, but still, progressing. Going through all my personal things, deciding what to keep, what to dispose of, it all takes time to do it thoroughly and with care. But I’m getting there…. where-ever “there” is!
Changes happening to the van also. Some cannot take place until January, but at least they are in the pipeline now. Other small jobs done today and more on Sunday planned. Once some basic refits are done, I want to do short trips to trial it and then adjust as necessary.
I’m beginning to dream of getting back into taking my photos again – so I can once more share with you the magic of the natural world and all its bounty. 🙂
It’s a shocking state of affairs. I’ve had strong adverse views on the use of uranium for as long as I can remember. In my home state of South Australia, the government is trying to open a nuclear waste dump on Traditional lands in the North of the State despite community protests. Greed must not succeed!
Grand Canyon, AZ — On October 13, 2016, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) issued three controversial air quality permits for uranium mines near the Grand Canyon. The uranium mining will desecrate sacred sites and further contaminate communities that have already been plagued by decades of toxic abandoned uranium mines.
“Mother Earth is very precious, every living thing depends on her,” said Cameron Chapter president Milton Tso, “Uranium belongs to our mother, it belongs to her and that’s where it should stay. You’re going to have a battle, I guarantee that you’re going to have a battle from me and from everybody else if this stuff starts going towards our way.”
“We are very upset that ADEQ approved the air quality permits.” stated Havasupai council member Carletta Tilousi, “Even though we stood firm on protecting the lands and sacred areas, again…

As expected, it’s dirty tricks time. Time to stand strong against the enemy.
The Dakota pipeline protests have become the frontline representation of the critical struggle against a completely out of control totalitarian power structure. Those in power cannot afford to allow this justifiable protest to continue or succeed. Geoengineering/weather warfare has now been added to the already long list of criminal assaults that have been hurled at the peaceful pipeline protesters. In the coming days and weeks, weather warfare will likely be the most deadly and effective weapon that the power structure will wield against the pieceful Dakota pipeling protesters.

Climate engineering and the use of toxic chemical ice nucleation elements are the reason a record early season snow has just occurred in the exact region of the protests (named winter storm “Blanche”). Weather warfare has long since been a

Australians are concerned about this situation also. We are in this together.
You can follow my brother Mike’s reports on their trip to the Sacred Stone Standing Rock encampment and protest in North Dakota here.
And if you are in Chicago you can join us at the Daley Center Plaza at 4PM Friday to support the protesters and their call to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Or you can send needed supplies to the encampment.
Surrounded by police and private security guards, over 4,000 people must be housed, fed and kept warm in tents.
A wish list has been set up on Amazon for those wishing to send physical supplies.
Thank you so much for supporting our fight to save the water! You can find a list of other supplies we may need at http://sacredstonecamp.org/supply-list/
You can find the Amazon wish list here:
1. You can donate items from the Sacred Stone Camp Supply List:
2. Contribute directly to the…

In the back of the Apple Store in Berkeley, California, at the end of the bar where those “geniuses” repair iPhones and MacBooks, is a placard with this warning: “If you carry or use your phone in …
The weather across the country has been unusual to say the least – and maybe I’ll leave it at that. 🙂 However, despite it all, my friend’s garden that I work in, is putting on it’s Spring face and on the rare still warm evenings, the perfume is delicious.
When I’ve not been in the garden, I’ve been mostly sorting through my household items, deciding which to keep, which to sell, and which to give away to friends. It’s been an interesting process, and not as difficult overall as I’d expected. There have been planned and unplanned expenses on the van, and I’m not as advanced in my interior fit-out as I’d have liked, but at least the mechanical side of things is being dealt with. Next month I’m planning on some little trips away – if the weather settles down that is!
