Thank you Tissy for …

The way you trusted me,
and put your head in my lap,
ready to be fondled,
and enjoy it while
grunting with satisfaction.

The way you trusted me,
with the cleaning of your eyes
and giving you tears,
leaning against my leg,
so it was easily done.

The way you trusted me,
sleeping in your bed at night
giving me your warmth
and just enough room
for me to also sleep.

The way you trusted me,
to follow you when we walked
and how you came back
whenever I called your name
with flapping ears of joy.

The way you greeted me,
if I had been away a bit
giving me happy grins
and a smiling body
actively saying “hellooo!”

The way you left that was so sudden,
my sweater still smells of you,
you are in my bed still,
and when I go out the door,
I can see you running around.

Each time.


Parkinson’s food balance

August 23, 2010 § 1 Comment

In Parkinson’s patients there is not enough dopamine to maintain the balance with acetylcholine. Meaning, a Parkinson’s patient needs both, just more of the foods that only stimulate the making of dopamine.

If you are on some L-dopamine as precursor to dopamine (dopamine cannot cross a healthy blood brain barrier), or if you have a food sensitivity or are ill, that has to be taken into account also.

Foods that up both, or specifically either …

A Solar ‘Katrina’ Storm? Seriously?

August 17, 2010 § 9 Comments

“Historically large storms have a potential to cause power grid blackouts and transformer damage of unprecedented proportions. An event that could incapacitate the network for a long time could be one of the largest natural disasters we could face,” he declares. A bluff, friendly man, half science nerd, half overgrown farm boy, Kappenman insists that solar EMP blasts the size of those that occurred in 1859 (before society was electrified) and 1921 (before the power grid had developed to the point where it played any significant role) would today result in large-scale blackouts lasting for months or years.

Earthly catastrophies aren’t the only natural forces with the potential to bring our systems down.

Growing Sakhalinski

July 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

Sakhalinski, also known as Jerusalem Artichoke, sunchoke, and sunroot, with Latin name Helianthus Tuberosus, is a perennial herb, cultivated as an annual root.

Sakhalinski is native to North America, and long used by Native Americans for food. It has been introduced and become naturalized in all temperate regions in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

It produces tubers on the ends and branches of underground stems or root stocks and midway on the rootstocks. Tubers are knobby, and can be white, red or purple skinned. We grow the white and the red.

Growing Angelica

July 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

Native Americans and European herbalists have been using various varieties of Angelica for ages.

Angelica can be found in wet areas such as marshes, stream and river banks, wet shores, sedge meadows, and along the edges of swamps. It can also be found in openings and wet hollows in mixed woods. It is especially common in cold habitats with springs.

Angelica blooms only once in its life time and then dies, so it is not easy to maintain in a cultivated situation. Not without timely implementation of a fitting propagation strategy, that is.

    What the romans named the Druid Tradition is ancient, and represents one of the wellsprings of inspiration of the Western Spiritual Tradition. But even though it is ancient, it is as relevant and alive today as it ever has been.
