Northwest Critters

In the Puget Sound area in the NW corner of America, they have many kinds of large slugs.

A common comment is, "Oh, my Lord! When you said,’Banana Slug." I thought you meant the COLOR of a banana, not the SIZE of a banana!"

When you are running barefoot at night, they are icky to step on. If you put salt on them they dissolve. Not a friendly thing to do.

You can put a small, open container of beer in your garden and they drown happy in it.

They sell 6" refrigerator magnets that are VERY realistic slugs. For the aficionado.

Civil War?

Could there be a ‘Civil War’ among the Puppet Masters?

We have seen some Billionaires that want the things Bernie & Jill want. We are beginning to see more signs that the 0.1% may be getting wiser. Will sanity prevail in time?

There is certainly lots of money to be made in an Intelligent World. And, it just might last longer than 10 or 15 yrs. Maybe the ultra rich, that are younger than 80 are realizing that the old geezers do not care about what happens in 10 yrs, but they should.

Some friends have asked for a list of usually good sources.

Some friends have asked for a list of usually good sources. If this list does not show up in easily readable form. please tell me and I will try again.

EVEN THESE SOURCES should be checked against original sources when possible.

For example.

They tell you that Wikileaks has an email that proves that blah, blah, blah.

Then go to Wikileaks. They have a search engine that takes a little getting used to, but you can FIND the email and see if you agree.

Just as MSM often has accurate articles. Some of these sources may be wrong or slanted.

Once you have a good feel for a subject, be sure to verify anything that surprises you. Yet, do not fail to verify the stuff that ‘sounds right’ frequently enough to detect being led away from reality.

Yes. It is a bother, but if you only have lies to base your decisions on, you are well and truly screwed.
