 Daily Deep Thought


Never under-estimate the value of a good pair of socks while camping  

Divorce is bad for the whole family.


Relationships should be cherished and if there is anything that can be salvaged, nurtured it should be done. If not, let it go.

Houses of Straw?

My plans for the weekend include a visit to The Farm. I have intended to visit this place for forever and a day. A broken heart, a state move, dire circumstances, lack of a reliable car, a stolen car and general other nasties have effectively kept me away from this visit.

Thus it is, now that I have a real car which, I might add, I pay 18% interest on the loan (due to lack of credit history), I am finally in a position and state of mind (having realized that my lost love was actually quite ordinary after all) to go forth, "Explore! Adventure! See the World and do not join the navy".


The Farm was apparently started some 30 years ago by a crowd of hippies looking for an alternative lifestyle. It seems to have survived and they host these odd and interesting workshops. If I had the bucks and the time I would most definitely attend. However, I am a p'or white starvin' immigrant from the middle of darkest Africa and have to bide my time. A quick visit should begin the process. This weekend they're having a "How to Grow Mushrooms" workshop.

I must say I am sort of expecting a crowd of oddballs. Women with no make-up, men with no 'goolie'-disciplining underwear, lots of crystals, twine, and expensive items for sale in the shop and visitors center. Perhaps a bit of the 'us against them' mindset, committee-type squabbling and some measure of heathen beliefs.

I do not know and I shouldn't really start laying the groundwork for things. My friend Lynne says that I over analyze everything, anyway. She is very cheeky.

Enjoy your visit - and never, ever daydream without the proper travel authorization in triplicate and copies for your files


A lot of people think they own the planet and have no respect for life. Nasty  people with big bellies, big buckles, big trucks, women with too-tight jeans had camped next door. Their horses had been ridden hard and tethered with no water, no food and the sweat not brushed off their flanks.  We sneaked around in the dark giving them buckets of water. I have decided I do not like most people - they suck big time.

Not Knowing What Else To Do, Woman saves the organic egg from extinction - hailed as hero by local ant population


Egg observations:

O Eggie, O Eggie, none better than the Eggie

From bum of chicken to plate of prince, peasant or me

personable, satisfying, uncomplaining and nice to eat

Eggs grow leggs - eventually - and run off to greener pastures

How interesting is the Egg

I want to live a different life. I shall learn about building houses out of cob, straw bale, bamboo and who knows what else. I am very curious. People say that to build a cob house that could last for hundreds of years you would need the house to wear a 'good hat and a good pair of shoes'.

Plane Speaking

It is a beautiful time of year. The sun lights up the days and the wind paints the sky like a dope-smoking artist.

The heavens no longer seem so packed with airplane trails (for reasons we well know).

When I first arrived in America, I remember feeling rather like a plump chicken beneath a sky full of hawks. There were so many planes darting around that I was pretty sure they would bump into each other. I could see the near future need for helium-based traffic lights. This is the only good thing I can say about post black September.
