All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
Solution A - get an electric mower...expensive and repetitive on a job a heartily loathe.
Solution B - buy a goat....too much hassel for a comparatively small patch of grass.
Soluition C - rotavate the soddin' stuff and plant whatever i likes.
Now i keep a small patch of grass that also grows clover to provide good green mulch for the composter and a handy spot to fall onto when i have one too many beers in my hammock :))
But this 'Green Thing' is a relatively modern phenomenon that 'grandma' and her generation were unaware of, and much of the environmental ideas wre not generally taken up til the Seventies when it became fashionable to have a veggie garden and a recycling bin. Only in the past ten-twenty years has it become a necessity to recycle - and grandma didn't necessarily recycle due to an environmental awareness but more to do with the thrifty notion of getting money back on the bottle; not quite the same thing.
back in 'the good old days' people who held these environmental concerns were caricatured as sandal-wearing, lentil-eating, harmless loonies; dope-smoking hippies or wiccan weirdos. Their beleifs that Mother Nature was a holistic entity derided as nothing more than quaint superstition.
The growth of paganism has grown almost hand-in-hand with environmentalism and is one of the rare topics that a broad swathe of people; whether wiccan, satanist or any sub-culture you care to name, tends to agree.
What really ticks me off is the way goverment agencies have grown into the environmentalist movements in recent years, such as the carbon emissions lobby, to generate profits from the very people they once considered so laughable.
WOW !!!! Did this go all over the place .. I did not really under stand how the whole world lived and believed .. We are all so different and live the way the Heads of our country's says it has to be .. We all do the best we can do and try to live the way we think we should .. In the USA having a gun is just a freedom we have all ways had since the beginning of our country .. We have used them to gain our freedoms here .. To hunt for food to ward off wild animals and people that wanted to cause us harm ... I am a woman and I have shot a gun and it was fun but I don't play with them any more .. My Husband Hunts Deer and we harvest Deer every year .. If there is a sick or injured animal it is very quick death to put them out of their suffering .. Never ran across a animal with rabies but would come in handy to put them down too .. Also a quick death for your self if the need came up :) ( Joking there ) but a lot of people shoot their selfs ,, But it is a Freedom and a Right to bear arms .. Can't fight a war with out them :)
Cars ???? LOL another freedom we can travel where ever we can afford to buy the gas to go .. Use to be horses and we have bikes and scooters and 4 wheelers ,Dune buggies Any things that can get us there faster and in comfort .. Or just feel the freedom of the wind in your hair going as fast as you can :)
Having a TV in every room comes in handy when things like 9-11 Happened .. You can do your house work and just listen to what is going on and not just sitting there in front of a tv in one room watching .. I was all over my house with all the TV's on working and listening and watching some times .. Just another Freedom and a choice for each person .. having a lot of this or that is not good or bad .. We just all live a different life and that is what makes it so wonderful ..
I Posted this because it hit home with me ... I remember all the ways it use to be before we went this so called Green .. There is good and Bad in every thing .. Back when we had nothing but glass bottles there was a lot of broken glass and I could not go bare foot because of the broken glass in the streets and side walks in the city .. But now we have a swirl of Plastic so big in the Ocean that will poison the water and wild life for hundreds of years .. Back in the 1960's my time of growing up.. There was good and bad things ,, Some things have gotten better and some things have gotten worse .. Some day it will all be over and so will this silly post that I put up ..
Live and Let Live . .Try to harm none but do what you will .. Bless you all and may only Love and Light come your ways .. Thanks for posting :) Blessings Alice
as long as you're eating what they're eating and don't upset them....that could be dangerous you know!
