Will You Survive 12 Months Without Working … ??

I’m one of many ‘Baby Boomers’ considering retirement or already there. My father lived through the Great Depression and was in the RAAF during the WWII. He built his own house and lived in it for 60 years. Dad had one job with a state government department for his entire working career, something hard to believe today. His income was sufficient, but we were not wealthy. He retired at age 59 with good superannuation and had no real financial concerns. He lived to the age of 90.

What is your score?

Fast forward to today, and you are expected to have around six to twelve career changes, (I had six changes to date).

Now we are living in an unforeseen period of time for most people on Earth, with a global pandemic and possibly severe financial hardships to follow.

According to Sociologists Dennis Gilbert, William Thompson and Joseph Hickey roughly 15% of the population of the world are upper middle class and are dealing with the virus situation reasonably well. Grave fears are held if the virus moves into some third world countries and is not contained.

Ray Dalio Says Capitalism & The System Are Broken!

    This fits your .
  • Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
  • This gorgeous Four O'Clock seems to plan its magnificent show around your schedule! Just as you arrive home from work, when everything else in the garden is furling shut, Broken Colors is opening its carnival of bicolor and pattterned blooms, ready to delight dinner guests on the patio or enrich your quiet evening stroll through the garden!
  • "li" A single 36-inch plant produces myriad 1- to 2-inch trumpet-shaped blooms in all combinations of raspberry, lemon-yellow, orange-golden, and frosty-white. The only thing they have in common--aside from their beauty and soft, Pansy-like texture--is that each is a color riot, from striping to stippling to streaking! "li" Until recently, the old-fashioned, multi-colored Mirabilis, known as Miracle of Peru, was believed to be lost to horticulture--the modern strains produce only solid-colored blooms. Then a few specimens were located, and years of breeding were undertaken to produce this festive update! "li" Best of all, Broken Colors is super-easy to grow! Sow the seeds in place as soon as the soil is warm in spring. Space about 1 1/2 to 2 feet apart in full sun and any well-drained soil. Heat- and drought-tolerant, the plants bloom all summer! "li" Four o'Clock has another valuable use in the garden besides its beauty and fragrance. It is a magnet for Japanese Beetles, so if your Roses and veggies are plagued by this pest, consider surrounding them with Four o'Clocks.

Tips for starting seedsTips for starting seeds

Starting Seeds Indoors

  1. Choose the Container. Seeds can be started in many types of containers. If you prefer all-natural options consider peat pots, expandable peat or coir pellets, or pots made from composted cow manure. If you prefer plastic pots there are options from 3 inch pots to multiple sizes of 6 packs. Our favorite way to start seeds is the Bio Dome.
  2. Growing Medium. Generally speaking, you will be more successful if you use a soilless mix to plant your seeds in. The tiny fragile roots sometimes have trouble getting through actual soil. You might be able to use the pellets that expand when you add water. Once they are expanded, you can plant one or two seeds in each.
  3. Watering. Bottom-water your seedlings. Adding water on top of the seedlings encourages damping off. Pathogens attack your seedlings at the soil level, causing the stem to rot and kill the plant. You can help prevent this by bottom-watering. Cover your pots or place them in a plastic bag to keep the humidity stable until they germinate. As soon as they have germinated, remove the plastic to allow air circulation.
  4. Light. You will need to provide 12-14 hours a day of light for your seedlings. More is better. You will have to use grow lights, either LED or wide spectrum fluorescent. Position the grow light several inches above your seedlings and raise it as the seedlings grow.
  5. Heat. Some seeds like to be warm to germinate. Refer to the seed packet for which seeds need heat. The best and easiest way to provide the warmth they require is with a heat mat. Just place the mat under your tray of seed starts, and you’re set.

What to Grow?

Choose plants that you can’t get at your local garden center. A good choice would be a flower, vegetable, or herb that you have trouble finding in the spring—like Stevia or Fragrant Corkscrew Vine. Also, if you need a large amount of one kind of plant, you might want to start the seeds indoors. Plants that need a longer growing season are also a good choice for your indoor garden.

Typical vegetables that are started indoors include tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, eggplant, squash, and cucumbers. Most of us can plant greens and corn directly in the garden but, if you live in the far north, you may have to start your seeds indoors to give the plants the time they need to mature.


When to Start?

So, how do you know when to start your seeds? The first thing you need to know is which planting zone you live in. This will give you the approximate date that you can plant outdoors in your area. Then read the back of your seed packet. It will tell you how many days they take to germinate and how long until you can harvest your vegetables. Now, count backward to determine when to plant.

The majority of plants will need about six weeks from planting to moving outdoors. There are seeds that will need to be planted as early as January or February, though, so check the package for sure.

When to Move Them Out?

You do want your plants to have at least two sets of true leaves before they’re moved outdoors. If everything is seeming right for moving the plants, they will need to be hardened off. Hardening off is the transition time given to plants to get used to being outdoors. In your house, the plants have never been in the wind, and the temperature has remained constant.

Suddenly, the temperature changes and there are cool nights and warm days. There is wind blowing them and rain will fall on them. Add to that, the sun is much more powerful than any light. So, your plants will need time to adjust. Move them outdoors into a sheltered area with filtered light, starting them out for just a couple of hours. Gradually increase the amount of time they are outside and expose them to more sunlight. Make sure they don’t dry out and, in a few days, they will be ready to be placed in their permanent home outdoors.


Biodome Makes Life Easier!

By far, the easiest way to start your seeds indoors is with Park Seed’s Biodome Seed Starter.

The Bio Dome has a sturdy plastic base and a clear plastic dome top to allow light in and to give room for the seedlings to grow. The dome top has vents that can be opened or closed as needed. There is a planting block that fits into the tray and has tapered cells into which you insert the bio-sponges. Each sponge has a small hole on the top, in which you place one seed. There is a packet of seedling food that is added to the water. This mixture is poured into the bottom tray. This allows your seeds to be bottom-watered. This is the best way to water the tender plants. No seeds will wash away, and the plants cannot be overwatered.

Once you have added the water, place the dome on top with the vent closed until the seeds germinate. Then you can open the vents as needed. That’s it! Everything is included in the kit except the seed!

Ray Dalio, billionaire hedge fund manager and the 58th most wealthy person on Earth (according to Forbes Rich List 2019) says that America’s capitalist system is broken! He says that the wealth gap and equal opportunities are not being addressed.

He says we need to come together, and we need to engineer the coming together. He says it is necessary! Could he be right?

It should be ringing alarm bells that many of our most influential and powerful men and women all around the planet are so far behind in their thinking. Buckminster Fuller was saying this and a lot more around 70 years ago. It was obvious to ‘Bucky’ and others then that we already had the technology or the know how to provide a high standard of living for everyone on Earth, without pollution and environmental degradation. Without subjugation and corruption …

Jeff Bridges Wins Award And Shares the Trim tab Effect

Actor and activist Jeff Bridges received the Cecil B. DeMille award at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards for his distinguished acting career and was very grateful. After thanking his wife of 45 years, his colleagues, family and friends he thanked a man who had nothing to do with his acting career.

Jeff Bridges spent around 2 minutes thanking a man who died nearly 40 years ago, a man considered to be one of the most important human beings of the 20th Century; an American engineer, architect, inventor and philosopher that few people have heard of, Mr R Buckminster Fuller, or ‘Bucky’ as he was fondly known. Fuller is known as an “Outlaw Designer”, a futurist, “grandfather of the Universe” and a close friend during his life of celebrities, entertainers like John Denver and many more. He was a pilot and a sailor.

It’s Time We Start Distributing The Wealth!

Biosphere 2

Did you know that we have had a change of CONTEXT for our lives on Earth, and we can now start distributing the wealth?

In fact the wealth is abundant!

Context is the ‘thing’ that shapes our environment, and our environment is what shapes our behavior.

An automotive factory for instance has a certain context that allows it to produce cars. It can’t produce boats or airplanes unless we change the layout and the type of machines that make up the factory, that makes up the context.

Sometime around 50 years ago the context of life on Earth changed from “there’s not enough for everyone, or there’s scarcity” to a context of “plenty for everyone, a context of abundance”.

Is Population Growth Out Of Control?

Can You Believe We Will Have A Population Of 9.7 Billion?

Yes, a population of 9.7 billion people on our small planet by 2050?

Today the world’s population is 7.4 billion and rapid population growth is expected in Africa and Asia, although the rising standard of living in Asia will help to slow population growth resulting in declining Asian population from around 2050.

Hello … is that really possible?

Is it sustainable? What can we do about it?

Nigeria is forecast to become the third most populous country in the world by 2050, overtaking the United States and third only to China and India.

Does Competition Destroy Ethical Behavior?

poor manYou know how we’re told all the time that works”, and “competition brings prices down”.

That may be so, but what else does it bring down? Does competition destroy ethical behavior, or is caused by greed? What do you think?

Well according to Andrei Shleifer, considered one of the top economists in the world and Professor of Economics at Harvard University (since 1991) it is sometimes competition rather than greed that causes unethical behavior.
