Here's who's knocking at my door.

Remembering what made me laugh on Columbus Day's 500th anniversary -- at the time the worry was the ozone layer, but global warming will also favor the darker skinned. I laughed because a woman behind me laughed, I turned, and her skin was among the darkest there. And I had to laugh because we made eye contact and she had bested me.
So today I think -- all these white people burning coal as fast as they can are acting against their own long-term interests. Sad. Learn how to grow wheat instead of a yard and feed yourself. Or corn. Remember Victory gardens? Neither do I, but I've heard of them and it sounds like a good idea to me.

Homeowner association meltdown: Three successive chairs have resigned from this non-profit organization since January. The chair instituted just this Saturday is trying to suspend Roger's Rules of Order so that he can push through whatever his agenda is (i.e.: seize power). A members' meeting at Lord of Life Lutheran Church, Renton, WA on May 4 at 7 pm might provide some fun fireworks should you choose to attend.

"The problem with secretive cabals is that they quickly become self-serving, and then mire themselves in internecine conflict. ...

[T]he only way forward is through an open discussion of problems and potential solutions, and broad-based collective action to implement them. It’s messy and slow, but that’s how lasting positive change usually comes about." -- Peter Turchin, PhD
