- 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! 21 months 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(P.S. The old peach can “pen & pencil holder” has been replaced by an old (¾) pop bottle, so the peach-can can be given to a needy family so they can recycle [sell] it.)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) 2 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.
