A rambling train of thoughts about the universe and our micro solar system consisting of our dear Sun and other planets in a magnetic dance while we hurtle through space on the face of a rock and stare at flat screens where we attempt to connect while we detach.

Mark Knopfler & Chet Atkins And a little Mass Action on #fracking
Wonderful yt link...
Now for a little request for the environment:
Everyone who is concerned
about climate justice and turning away from the use of dangerous fossil fuels
ought to be interested in the ACTION that will take place in Montpelier on
Saturday, October 24, beginning at 11:00 a.m. The goal is to get such a crowd of
people there that it will be very clear that very many Vermont citizens don’t
buy the promises of Vermont Gas Systems, believe that officers of VGS have
consistently lied about the cost and the expected savings from piping fracked
gas to Addison County, and that therefore the VT Public Service Board should
terminate the permit to build a pipeline from Burlington to Middlebury.
Here is a promo video that
will explain what this is about:
Now it is only days until
we are rising up for climate justice and shutting down the Vermont Gas Pipeline.
If you haven't already rallied your friends, parents, grandkids, and neighbors
to join you at the statehouse this Saturday, October 24th, show them this
invitational video. It's good for the soul to remember all of the incredible
times when people came together in this campaign to stop the fracked gas
pipeline. And it's going to be even more fun to publicly call out the backroom
dealings that lead to climate disaster, and stomp out this project together!
