Zeitgeist, except a couple

Here’s an e-mail exchange with my brother. Robert Reynolds wrote: Have you ever seen this movie? http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/ This guy does an EXCELLENT job of collecting information to illustrate what a lot of us already know.

Four Letter Words

This is a rather dirty subject. I’ve been looking for a piece of property to buy. I want a nice place to live where I can grow some food and explore various other projects. One of the important factors in my search is the growing conditions, the biggest being the soil. What I noticed was […]

Missing You
