Small rewards are excellent ideas while you are still at the beginning of your work outs and you are still struggling to find the motivation to drive to the gym or put on your running shoes and get out of the house. Once you set the right pace and you get into the repetitive rhythm […]

The U.S. government keeps approximately 2,611 tons of mustard gas in a facility in Colorado, and 524 tons of a spectrum of chemical weapons—including deadly nerve agent Sarin—in a facility in Kentucky, despite commitments to have already destroyed its chemical arsenals by now.
People react as an explosion goes off near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon in Boston, Monday, April 15, 2013. Two explosions went off at the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday, sending authorities out on the course to carry off the injured while the stragglers were rerouted away from the smoking site of the blasts. (AP Photo/The Boston Globe, David L Ryan) After the bombings that killed and maimed so horribly at the Boston Marathon, our country’s politics and mass media are awash in heartfelt compassion — and reflexive “doublethink,” which George Orwell described as willingness “to forget any fact that has become inconvenient.”
In sync with media outlets across the country, the New York Times put a chilling headline on Wednesday’s front page: “Boston Bombs Were Loaded to Maim, Officials Say.” The story reported that nails and ball bearings were stuffed into pressure cookers, “rigged to shoot sharp bits of shrapnel into anyone within reach of their blast.”
Much less crude and weighing in at 1,000 pounds, CBU-87/B warheads were in the category of “combined effects munitions” when put to use 14 years ago by a bomber named Uncle Sam. The U.S. media coverage was brief and fleeting.
One Friday, at noontime, U.S.-led NATO forces dropped cluster bombs on the city of Nis, in the vicinity of a vegetable market. “The bombs struck next to the hospital complex and near the market, bringing death and destruction, peppering the streets of Serbia’s third-largest city with shrapnel,” a dispatch in the San Francisco Chronicle reported on May 8, 1999.
And: “In a street leading from the market, dismembered bodies were strewn among carrots and other vegetables in pools of blood. A dead woman, her body covered with a sheet, was still clutching a shopping bag filled with carrots.”

2/16/02 6:10 am – 6:20 It is always the intention that determines the outcome in the spiritual kingdom. In the physical world, intention must be mixed with desire and will. But not just that, intention shows the way of the soul if it is aligned with what is right. We do not mean to confuse […]
I was sitting across the street from this image in mid-town NYC. I was so taken with its state of decay against the beautiful yellow wall, which seemed quite delicate to me. A flying cow I thought to myself or a flying dog – Mercury? Likely some common, seemingly Japanese cartoon image I am unfamiliar […]
Here we are on Dog Wood Farm getting ready to go for a drive. The dogs are a little restless here, anxious to get on the road. They love to travel and they go everywhere with me, even to the grocery store.
Does anyone else notice how loud life has gotten? Given that I am hard of hearing, you might think noise would not be an issue. There are all kinds of noises. There are the literal sounds we hear at home, of people talking, of dogs barking, of water flowing. There are noises that frighten us, […]
It was time to clean the hen house. I grabbed a sack of pine wood shavings and an oversize trash bag from the run- in, the wide shovel and my gloves. After bagging up all the old shavings, wet from water and hen droppings, I began to shake new bedding onto the floor. Before I […]
Watching from the kitchen window, we observed three healthy fox run around the perimeter of the hen house, playing with each other as if no one was watching. One ran south while another ran north. One simply plopped down on the grass about 20 feet from the hen’s yard. They were healthy fox which is […]
