"Unlike most human relationships, my library is always buying me something new, forgiving me when I atone, and consistently planning unexpected ways to lure me." 
Join me in the obsession. It's free and oh so addicting.

Anti-nuke activist finds that she has a connection to the atomic bomb. 
I'm sure my ten-year-old self would be disappointed with me now. I haven’t devoted myself to freeing the world of nuclear waste and nuclear weapons, nor to advancing peace. But it’s an issue that has resounded in my life.

I agree! Sadly, our historical Carnegie Library was closed in favor of a huge, modern, antiseptic building. The building became a used book store for a long time in its second life, but sits abandoned now. All libraries are worthy, but I miss the venerable building of my youth.

+Curt Brown I certainly don't - I was only making a numbers comparison to show. I make good money there is no doubt about that but to take that amount from me is simply overkill. I am against the income tax it is true but I could certainly stomach a far less invasive one than this.

Researchers have developed detailed plans for each state in the union to move to 100 percent wind, water, and solar power by 2050 using only technology that's already available. The plan doesn't rely, like many others, on dramatic energy efficiency regimes. Nor does it include biofuels or nuclear power, whose green credentials are the source of much debate.

'Intelligent people are more likely to trust others'

Lead author Noah Carl, from the Department of Sociology, said: 'Intelligence is shown to be linked with trusting others, even after taking into account factors like marital status, education and income. This finding supports what other researchers have argued, namely that being a good judge of character is a distinct part of human intelligence which evolved through natural selection. However, there are other possible interpretations of the evidence, and further research is needed to disentangle them.'

Introduction

Relentless optimist, book addict, awe junkie.  

I'm the author of Free Range Learning, a handbook of natural learning, and a collection of poetry titled TendingMy upcoming book is titled Subversive Cooking. I write and serve as editor for a number of periodicals, print and online.  

My background includes teaching non-violence workshops, writing poetry with nursing home residents, facilitating support groups, and developing community enrichment workshops. 

These days I mostly edit books, write, and do other hermit-y things. My poetry has won several minor awards, the most notable a third grade prize from Miss Barker (which included a chocolate bar.) 

I live on a small farm with my family where we raise bees, cows, chickens, produce, and the occasional hair-brained scheme.
