Christianity the world trade centre and more

I’ve just watched this movie there’s alot in it.

Lots of different opinions on this

I’m not sure about all the “facts” but it certainly is worth watching as it is food for thought.

The film is by the the Zeitgeist Movement which is the activist arm of

“The Venus Project operates out of a 21.5-acre Research Center located in Venus, Florida.

When one considers the enormity of the challenges facing society today, we can safely conclude that the time is long overdue for us to reexamine our values, and to reflect upon and evaluate some of the underlying issues and assumptions we have as a society. This self-analysis calls into question the very nature of what it means to be human, what it means to be a member of a “civilization,” and what choices we can make today to ensure a prosperous future for all the world’s people.

Corrianders Dead – Although I have beans!

KEY LEARNINGS

  • Seedlings are delicate! Don’t leave out in direct sunlight for very long
  • Label everything otherwise telling the difference between weeds and what you plated becomes tricky
  • Mulching well is essentaial before you try to grow anything
  • Apart from good drainage potting mix is important as it doesn’t have any other plants in it (when growing seedlings it is important you have no other competeiion or you are likely to end up watering weeds!
  • Read the labels on the seeds. I’ve been growing “dwarf beans” – how pathetic.

    NEW THINGS I HAVE TRIED

  • I put in the palm mulch (I mixed it with compost and stacked it up over my beans)
  • I have worked out a better way of putting compost nto the seedling containers

  • Used all my seedling containers and planted
    – Corriander
    -Mint
    -Parsley
    -Chives
    -Ferns
    -Basil
    -Basil Lettuce
    -Brocoli

    DIARY COMMENT
    Negatives

  • Seedlings are all dead – I got them out and left them in the middle of the yard for two days and most of them died!
  • Tomatoes are taking there time!

    Postives

  • Beans are producing beans!

  • I worked out what this tray is for!

    HOW TO QUICKLY PLANT SEEDLINGS
    1. Get seedling containers
    2. put in the tray (in pic)
    3. Empty potting mix onto containters
    4. Remove containers from tray (then repeat with this with as many seedling containers as you need to
    5. Water all pots thoroughly
    6. Get a thin stick (bit bigger than a cocktail stick
    7. make holes for your seeds (it is quicky if you have all your pots lined up and work accross all the pots in one go.
    8. drop seeds to try and get them into the holes
    9. Get a handfull or two of potting mix and shake it to cover the seeds
    10. Viola (this took me about 30 mins for about 20 seedling containers

    GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
    Today gave some of my tomato seedlings to another community gardener

  • Recycled Water

    As you may know from a previous post I believe recycling paper and metals to be a complete waste of time and actually harmfull.

    I am just watching a documentary extolling the virtues of recycled water. So I have done a bit of research

    My first stop was wikipeadia
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NEWater
    They recycle water in both singapore and london seemingly. I have been looking for stuff online about recycled water in london and can’t see anything. I don’t think the “recycled water” in London is quite the same as the “recycled water” they are reccomedning elsewhe. After a great deal of digging I have found the answer yes london and theier water “recycling ” is totally different to what is now being proposed

    Melbourne Earthquake!

    I was in bed last night and the earth moved. The windows rattled and my bed shook. I got out of bed to make sure something wasn’t causing the house to shake. I then went back to bed and heard on the radio that there had been an earthquake!


    UPDATE 5.45pm: RESIDENTS as far north as Bendigo and Seymour felt an earthquake hitting 4.6 on the Richter Scale that rocked Victoria last night.

    Millions of Victorians felt the quake just after 9pm, with many waking to cracked walls and broken windows this morning. There was no major damage or injuries reported.”

    THe Nature of Chee or QI

    Wilst looking at self massage on youtube I thought I should open the search up to “self healing”. As many of you know I try to look after my qi and this is a movie about working with the qi (or life force as seen by toaists).

    It looks pretty interesting qi is lifeforce and think gong is breathing. I guess it’s a bit like the study of Pranayama (in yoga)

    It is now practiced by millions of chinese http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qigong
