Home Among the Trees

Here’s a ‘goody’ that may interest a number :  type in (search)  WATERBOXX  (2 Xs).  Rather fascinating Grow Plants / TREES “way”.
Not only that, but Side Bar related info a WORTHY look too.
One on Homes from Living Trees.  Something I’ve done in the ’60s.  Still there as far as I know.  Made from growing bent willows.  Made it for Christy as her own ‘private cabin In The Woods’.
Even given thought to doing “ditto” on our safe land…using very tall White Birch trees in a grove there.

Anyway, check these places out if you’re interested.

Remember, Willows and willow-related trees (Birch being one) means : SURFACE WATER.

IE ‘ SHALLOW WELL’ WATER!  Aho?  Re

I’ve often wondered, WHY do people make “Life” so COMPLICATED!??

Goes A lot smoother when you relax, float on the surface of the riptide.

LAY BACK and RELAX!

I’m like anyone else…Bills/Break Downs/One thing after another.

Aho?

In all this, I’ve just “lay(ed) back”, said/say, “Fix it please, “Dad”…and Thanks.”

Always works.

Call it Faith, Trust, whatever…it ALWAYS works.

Why get uptight, ulcers, depressed, sick…when it’s so SIMPLE.

I’m CONSTANTLY surprised at how MANY…..ADULTS!….will NOT listen / act on the EXPERIENCE(s) of those who HAVE “Done”….and LEARNED the HARD WAY from NOT LISTENING THEMSELVES!

Dang, I’m stupid.

Age brings WISDOM….. IF wise enough to LISTEN!   Re

Getting DAYS of dishes done…then C was called to a SKY Meeting at school (he’s failing)…then to home and dome clearing.

Sky is NOT “failing,” to ME…..has ALL the SCHOOL KNOWLEDGE he needs.  PASSING THE SPIRITUAL THO!!!

I HATE School “teaching”.  Quit when I was 15  (he’ll be that next month).  Can ALWAYS improve via GED, as I…WHEN HE’S READY (as I did).

I’m quite aware my spelling is SUPER BAD…BIG DEAL!  You can READ it…that’s ALL that matters. (Alot is caused by SHAKES and No Going Back Over what I type.  NO TIME!  TOO many to answer DAILY).

WS doing a SUPER Job of repairing before my writings go on the Blog / Etc..  a VOLUNTEER!!! I’m am so THANKFUL FOR WHAT SHE DOES!  HO!

Takes a GIANT load off Heather’s work (book) and YOUR’S.

I want to Home School Sky…his mom and Meachelle (my wife) won’t allow it.  C (daughter) was…and did FANTASTIC!  (Got her GED too).

In today’s world, it WILL BE RARE to GET a JOB!  Even “Fast Foods”.  Still, I understand “proper” schooling.  Why I want to continue on…in HOME Schooling.  Aho?

No, what people NEED to know is HOW TO “CONNECT” / How to LIVE withIN Nature.  THAT will FEED YOU!  Otherwise : WELFARE…and THAT will go “down the tube” too….in time.

Sky know how to build his own abode….fish….some snaring….go “without”.  Things MANY DON’T.  He’s far better ‘prepared’ then ALOT of the ‘Sheeple’ of most of “civilized” man.

How many KIDS do YOU Know who can cook?  Sew?  Etc. ???  LIFE stuff!  WHO THEN IS THE “SMART” ONE”?   re

(WS – who’s kinda blushing right now! 😀 )

A brother sent:

:)….hey u’ll love this little girl…. checkout the look on the UN faces….GB http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Sb6RmRMbBY&NR=1

To ALL…THIS is WELL WORTH YOUR TIME!  PLEASE LOOK / LISTEN…then, if led : PASS TO OTHERS!

“And a CHILD shall LEAD”.   re

Note from WS: According to the YouTube site, this video originally came from here: The Girl Who Silenced the World at the UN on the KarmaTube website (even tho it uses the YouTube video) – which is ALSO well worth the time.  If you cannot watch videos, go here, or google ‘Severn Suzuki transcript’ and you’ll find several sites that host the transcript of the speech.

Ok, folks….in 8 months (might be a bit more), I’ve now had a bit over One Hundred Thousand “hits” on this blog.  Cut that by perhaps 2/3rds and thus 1/3 “new readers”.  Still, not bad I feel.

This shows me there is interest….hopefully for Spiritual Growth “want”.

I don’t give “junk” when I share.  Teach?  Chew Out?  You bet!  Life has alot of LIFE.  Aho?

So, to you…new or returns, I WISH YOU A GOOD LIFE and a MERRY CHRISTMAS!    re AND “mine”.

VIDEO GAMES!    The “KILL TO WIN” ones.  Swords / Cars / Guns……Swish Swish….Clank Clank…..Rat-tat-Tat.

Grenades…..Fire Bombs.  YOU NAME IT!  Even Street Fight STOMPINGS.

FUN!

You die?  “DARN!  Now to figure out how NOT to ‘next time’  (press a button and ‘give it a go’).

THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR LIVING ROOMS AND BEDROOMS ACROSS the “Modern” WORLD.   8 – 9 yr. olds / Teens / and even young ADULTS!

“Cool GAME!”

Then to the REAL thing.  REAL “License to Kill”….OUR MODERN MILITARIES!

Ask our modern Vets…’Nam, on.

Don’t get me wrong….I’m not against video games….to a POINT.

They help INSTANT REACTIONS….EYE COORDINATION….INSTANT “Safe places” / Etc.

A GOOD thing.

I see the TODAY’S need of Military as well….AT HOME Military.

There is a Fine Line in these games….AND BEING CROSSED OVER TO THE  “GORE” “GLORY”, by FAR!

They are not fun anymore.  Not MENTAL “Oneness” fun, anyway.

WE ARE LETTING OUR KIDS PREPARE TO……..DIE! ….PLAYING a REAL “game”.  …and YOU might end up in THEIR CROSSHAIRS!        re

Friends, it is one thing to Read….this at least Helps.  Quite another to EXPERIENCE.  IE : Practice.

IE : TEST.
As long as it hurt none, as long as it’s morally right….never JUST read….go out and DO IT.    re

The following an answer to one seeking if a ‘good buy’ on a certain stove (http://www.sedorestoves.com/)…said “would be cheap to fuel. A GOOD THING!”

Oh WOW!  THANK YOU.  M is CORRECT!  A pricy thing tho.  Still, CAN “recoup” in not TOO short a time.

I remember your Pellet Stove.  DON’T CARE A THING FOR ‘EM!  Do NOT ‘put out’ the HEAT for the $$ for fuel.  MY “M” wanted one when they 1st came out….and all the “Cheap Fuel” it uses.  I PUT MY FOOT DOWN IMMEDIATELY!…and FLAT HARD!!!  Told her “CHEAP NOW, but a PLOY! And we’d be spending a Small FORTUNE in 4 – 7 yrs when they ‘Catch On'”!

I’ve been proved right.  She’s NOW happy I flatly said “NO!”

MANY “cheap” being put out…like GAS (natural) Etc.  Got THAT believed and Accepted…NOW LOOK AT THE PRICE OF THIS FUEL!

So MANY “future” Thinkers”.  Willing to put out BIG “start up” costs…to make a KILLING Income in the ‘future’.

Build…lose money (for a WHILE), PUSH…and BUY STOCKS while “down / new”….then : BMWs / MANSIONS / “my” BOAT (  :   /  etc..

Profit is one thing…LYING quite another.  Aho?

Even my SUPER CHEAP DOMES are NOT wanted to be told by the media….”We’d, RUIN the GOOD OL’ BOY Club” if we revealed THIS!”

Our ECONOMY is BASED ON LIES OF CON-MEN…..and WE GO ALONG WITH IT!  ‘Til now Most of our masses “can’t LIVE” without ELECTRICITY or a CAR or …. well, you get the picture.
Even worse , the CON of “GO GREEN”.   “GREEN” is MONEY TO CONS!   People, GOOD-HEARTED STUPID PEOPLE, ARE “Signing Up”.  MUCH to the HORROR of DENUDED TREES / WATER / EARTH RAPE.  Things NEEDED to make to GET YOUR MONEY!

KILLING MAN’S RESOURCES to “help” SAVE IT!

What a HUGE BUNCH OF ‘CONTROLLED’ IDIOTS!

HOW STUPID ARE WE!   Well, “idiots” : DAMN STUPID!

Now the FREE THINKERS will….W  I  L  L   be “OUTLAWED”.  CRIMINALS!  Simply because We are NOT ‘FOOLS’!   A DANGER to the “National / Economy SOCIETY”.

A danger TO THE CON MEN!  Aho?   re

Hard Time Tips

To ease your ‘path’…is to KNOW HOW to make WILDERNESS LIVING Easier.  Thus :

“By Hook or Crook” was a way folks got high up tree limb deadwood.  Simple: get a long branch, Strip off all BUT THE BIG END with a “hook” branch.  All others taken off.  HOOK the “hook” over the tall branch(es) and PULL Down.  (Watch your head)

To carry out cut firewood : CUT NEARLY THROUGH one “long” log..  Shoulder carry out 3, etc. pieces at a time on  shoulders or Sled.  Break apart at home. STEP on it to break.

To fast dry wood, take a strip of bark off…or more.

Children’s cheap plastic sleds can sure help carry firewood, YEAR ROUND.

If a BIG Log: cut pulling end to a “point”.  Thus won’t “dig in” when pulling out.

BARK makes most of your CREOSOTE.  PEEL and use ONLY AS FIRE STARTER!

If firewood is across a ravine or up a hill….STRETCH A STRONG ROPE ACROSS to your “landing area”.  Cut lengths short.  Pound in U-bend “Fence nails” and SLIDE the wood across on the rope.  ALLOW ROOM to SLIDE down rope.

BE AWARE  these pieces have nails…WATCH OUT when going to landing area to collect.

A large MAGNET can help recoup your nails.

I’ve used a pet cow to pull out logs.  Made a yoke with a partially inflated car inner tube.  TAPE the AIR STEM so as to not harm animal.

Travois on dogs / horses / friendly cow / goats can be made easily.  DON’T OVERLOAD.

PUT THEM TO WORK!

In Kindling Splitting….put wood to be spit Upright into center of
an OLD TIRE.  ALL pieces, split, then stand upright and no needless “chasing” and   bending. (Faster, too).

If using a HAND SAW…use KEROSENE to occasionally wet (rag) the blade.  FAR SMOOTHER going.

Hope this is useful for someone…or FUTURE someones.  Aho?   GB    re
