- WHEN WE GROW [hemp, marijuana?], This is what we can do
~3:m hemp plastic lighter than steel but can withstand 10x the force
~4:m hemp is anti-bacterial flame-resistant
~6:m negative carbon footprint!
~ ?m hempcrete!!
~19:30 unintelligible – background sound too loud, speaker mumbles. Too bad; he sounds like a useful speaker.
Maybe I should change this goal to “use appropriate technology appropriatly”
- using bikes (cyclists on bicycles) to transport bike parts to locations that can assemble them, to help severely poor people – “Working Bikes Cooperative” or “Bikes Not Bombs”

Take old plastic bottles and crush them down and look what you can do with them! 2 years ago
I’ll let you ponder that.
(P.S. The old peach can “pen & pencil holder” has been replaced by an old (¾) pop bottle, so the peach-can can be given to a needy family so they can recycle [sell] it.)

a “new” bowl
(too bad the original contents have MSG. Looks like I’ll have to find a different whipped cream)
And if there is a next time, dirt pudding should have some gummi worms in it.

I like TG’s idea of putting the tv on a power-strip so it can be turned off from the source.
I think I’ll see if I can get all my power strips out to where it’s easier to hit that button & shut a bunch of periferals down! (especially the tv)
I just made something new out of (used) materials. (I reused &/or recycled) 3 years ago
I found an old thrown-out work-station thingee (just a skeleton of aluminum) & some decent old wood boards (slats?) & they waited around all summer for me to get offa my butt. I’m alone here today, so that’s what I did. And I don’t think it could’ve worked-out much better. I think it’ll be a nice surprise.
I tied the flats to the station with a cross-hatching of twine.
And if that’s actually a small bee’s nest in there, then later-on I will be able to “get in touch with nature”!
(maybe a pic later)
edit: I’m now using an old peach can as a pen & pencil holder.

I been thinking a little more about where things are coming from, that I use (& use-up.)
We’re getting much more efficient at mining & tearing things up to get to “the good stuff,” and we’re probably getting better at using the primary scraps. But I don’t think it’s enough. It’s not going to work this way.
In the past couple of days I’ve successfully avoided a Nestle cup of pudding twice! And I made some “homemade gatoraid,” which, the only ingredient I was missing was sea salt! So that was easy.
