Nature Advances as Humans Cope...


Quite an interesting story I read today from "Gulf Today (Beta)" titled "Nature advances as humans retreat". I found the majority of what Writer/Editor/Consultant, Meena Janardhan, posited a breath of fresh air but I do hold view points that I feel are equally compelling. Firstly, I really enjoyed hearing about herds of spotted deer, or swamp deer, near Rajaji National park in Haridwar, Dehradun, and Pauri Garhwal districts in Uttarakhand. However, while more people stay inside it only makes sense the animals are less hindered and less likely to get spooked allowing them to investigate areas people typically bustled around all day. While this is good and nice to see I do not believe this is anything more than the way nature typically reacts. The same could easily go the other way around where humans may decide to either stand their ground or allow use of land to others if those others are bears, snakes, or tigers. It was very good learning that the rare sights of Dhauladhar mountain range, part of the Himalayan range in Himachal Pradesh, which became visible in Jalandhar after years as pollution dipped across Punjab. This is cecrtainly a concern for the health of both nature and us as humanity that lives outside in our segregated artificial existences we created. I agree that pollution is an issue for health though I am not so sure some smog affects the Earth so much as it does us as the sky cleared so quickly after only a few weeks of quarantine. The article was cecrtainly a very good read and I'd recommend it but I do also recommend that one keeps in mind that it is not all individual people that work against nature so much as the artificial existence society as a singular organism has created...

20yo Ryobi Blue Sawzall Repair

So today was the day it finally happened. The 18v blue Ryobi sawzall I bought oh so many years ago has finally let me down. Over twenty years of tough love has taken its toll and the test will now be upon me. Can this saw of mine be repaired? Can I do it? As detailed inside this video, the parts needed and the self-destruction of the failed assembly can be rebuilt. The blue Ryobi sawzall lives again!

Forging a Way Through Shae's Opening

Way back in late August / early September I stumbled upon "Shae's opening" while forging the perimeter trail. I found his gloves next to the axe and road signs nearby... This will definitely be an area to explore further after tick season :) Tags: #offGrid, #DIY, #howTo, #frugal, #free, #nature, #natural, #landscaping, #livinmicro, #briars, #path, #hiking, #trail

Did Corbett Report actually debunk the "JFK Silver Certificate Myth"?

I disagree with the idea that Kennedy was pro federal reserve. With paper notes, be they federal reserve notes or silver certificates the U.S. citizen or human individual was unable to hold, stockpile, and/or collect the silver personally by his/her own will. When the bill became law (pleasing the fed) Kennedy saw that enabling silver coinage gave the US populace, as human individuals, the ability to play both sides of the currency game for leveraging personal wealth gains as a natural born person without need for others' approval. If I exchanged all my federal reserve notes for silver coins I could still leverage their value as I would a silver certificate however, if those coins made of silver were in my possession I could see if either the value of the federal reserve note or the value of silver metal was worth more without need to exchange under permission at a bank or mint. This gave the average citizenry the ability to stockpile fungible silver rather than d
