Extinction Cascade

Published April 9, 2018 by tindertender

Extinction CascadeThe White Rhino was recently announced to be extinct, and more recently the Eastern Puma … gone forever. Many more will begin to leave this planet as well, with a rapidity which will spin our minds. The whales of the sea are dying along with all of the other life that dwells there.

When will humanity change their destructive ways and stop being so damn greedy?

The 50-foot whale, constructed from waste such as bags, containers and bottles, was created by environmental NGO Greenpeace Philippines as part of efforts to encourage the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to address the problem of plastic pollution.

Beached Whale art for awareness

This may be a sculpture to help bring awareness to this dire issue, but it does not lessen the travesty being wrought upon all life through these destructive habits we’ve adopted world wide.

Tender Care

Published March 30, 2018 by tindertender

full moon and waterToday I was able to leave work a little early. I stopped by the local pizza parlor for 2 to go. Dinner was at 4pm and then I laid down for a nap. Ahhhh sweet relaxation. To have the ability to just lay down and sleep when one is sleepy is so nice. I woke at 6:30pm and had ice cream, this too is so nice, as now there is plenty of time left in the day to digest it before laying down once more.

It is time for the Full Blue Moon, March 31st. You may be feeling a little “Moonstruck” also. Remember to care for yourself this Easter holiday. You deserve the tender thoughtfulness that only you can gift yourself.

The Creation Of Humanity

Published March 28, 2018 by tindertender

Popol Vuh“Then spoke they who are called She Who Has Borne Children and He Who Has Begotten  Sons, the Framer and the Shaper, Sovereign and Quetzal Serpent:

“The dawn approaches, and our work is not successfully completed. A provider and a sustainer have yet to appear ~ a child of light, a son of light. Humanity has yet to appear to populate the face of the earth,” they said.

Thus they gathered together and joined their thoughts  in the darkness, in the night. They searched and they sifted. Here they thought and they pondered. Their thoughts came forth bright and clear. They discovered and established that which would become the flesh of humanity. This took place just a little before the appearance of the sun, moon, and stars above the heads of the Framer and the Shaper … Water was their blood. It became the blood of humanity.”

Water became the blood of humanity …

This leads one to ponder the sacredness of water in a whole new fashion. Regardless of what you currently believe, just reading these lines from the Maya Creation Story turns the mind toward an opening of possibilities.

Water and You

Water is of major importance to all living things; in some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water.

The blood plasma volume totals of 2.7–3.0 liters (2.8–3.2 quarts) in an average human. It is essentially an aqueous solution containing 92% water, 8% blood plasma proteins, and trace amounts of other materials.

When we walk along a river bed and there is garbage thrown down the embankment impossible to retrieve, I will now be thinking of this. Every time someone chooses to pee in the river, or the pool, I will think of this. Waters are not only sacred for the life which lives there, it is sacred for all life, for it truly sustains us in many more ways than the few we’ve been told about.

The Privatization of Water: Nestlé Denies that Water is a Fundamental Human Right

https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-privatisation-of-water-nestle-denies-that-water-is-a-fundamental-human-right/5332238

How can this man, or anyone at all declare that water is not a fundamental human right when it is the “life blood” of ALL LIFE? Why are there still people purchasing waters that this company has stolen from others for profit, while the children who have been robbed of their life source get sick and die? Is no one aware of this?

Clean Water

Water residue.jpgFor one and a half years I’ve been distilling my water from the faucet. The residue left over was absolutely disgusting! Last week the brown gunk has turned into a light yellowish residue. In my water bill there was a warning of lead pipes and offer of free lead testing kits. I ordered the kits and have doubts as to the severity of lead in the pipes. More concerned am I as to why for a year there was a thick putrid residue left from distillation, and now all of a sudden there is a significant decrease in it.

The top picture shows the residue left from the beginning of my distillation days up to about a week ago.

I have filtered through a Brita tap filter, distill it and filter through activated charcoal filter, and now filter once more before drinking. Although people would have me believe it is the pipes, I know better … I’ve seen the change, and I have not re-plumbed the house. It looks like the treatment plant is stepping up the work they should have been doing all along.

Distiller residue 3-23-18This picture shows what the residue looks like for the last 5 or so days. The difference is major.

I’m doing my best to thrive in this poisoned world, as those we pay to keep us safe fall short of their duties. Awareness is key, action is a must. Relying on others to tend our health is a big mistake.

Plastic Ocean

Published March 16, 2018 by tindertender

My hope is that those with ideas and solutions for this clean up will be financed by those who have abundance, instead of pouring their money into plastics and oil.

If you aren’t for planet health, then you’re for its destruction.

Little changes in day to day life can have a tremendous impact on this issue. The transition is difficult for we have all been led right into this ‘convenience’ … at the expense of the world and all life upon it.

Plastic Oceans

Devastating.

Rich Horner was diving off the coast of Bali at Manta Point when he came across this nightmare.

Here’s what he had to say about it: “The ocean currents brought us in a lovely gift of a slick of jellyfish, plankton, leaves, brunches, fronds, sticks, etc…. Oh, and some plastic. Some plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic cups, plastic sheets, plastic buckets, plastic sachets, plastic straws, plastic baskets, plastic bags, more plastic bags, plastic, plastic, so much plastic!
Surprise, surprise, there weren’t many Mantas there at the cleaning station today… They mostly decided not to bother.”

For crying OUT LOUD!!!! We’ve all got to start taking responsibility for this tragic mess!! This is ALL of our faults!!!

Water/Snow Testing

Published February 22, 2018 by tindertender

What's in your water
I found a company that will test my snow sample. I’m taking it in this morning. Cost? $102.00, and another $40 to test for Pseudomonas: fluorescents and aeruginosa. I’ll post about the results when I receive them.

Until then, be wise, distill your water, don’t drink from plastic which seeps chemicals into the water. Protect your cells.
