    Went shopping today and investigated Wagan products.
    Barbados has lots of sunshine so they are very advanced when it comes to solar power generators.

    This converter is just under $1000 here, and cheaper than in a Sears store in the US.

    Thats one nice generator! Magnificent Ulli.

    Thanks for the rain, everybody. We really needed it here in Barbados.
    It's coming down in buckets, whipped by winds.
    Thunder grumblings in the distance.
    Going to check the satellite pics now, to see what size cloud this is coming from.

    Thumbs up Re: Here and Now...What's Happening?

    Glad to hear the rain is falling in Barbados. : )

    Ulli has tickled my fancy. Some other devices I have come across in my early awakening stages. Fascinated with Free Energy Devices and Sacred Geometry. Were the initial hobbies of mine. Anyways..... This is with respect to Ulli 's Solar Generator. I will be adding to this post. If you dont mind.





    One of my Favorites. This babys gotta be pumping out some juice. Where is this device today. Probably collecting dust on the suppression shelf.

    This thought came to mind whilst watching this. I could picture her singing this during an Orgasm. ROTFLMFAO. She could of very well been a chicken in one of her previous incarnations. Too bad im a vegetarian. Great Video Benevolent Crow. : )

    About a month after Mazie and I found each other again (2001), we moved in together in a little bayfront town in the San Francisco area called Martinez. We lived there for about a year and half, before moving up to the Northern Cascades, where we built a cabin and got pretty much off the grid. Martinez was a miraculous time, and we spent a good deal of it literally in another dimension -- a parallel one that blissfully intersected with what some call "this world".

    We used to stroll around our neighborhood at all hours, intoxicated by the mere presence of each other, like two drunken sailors on a long-overdue shore leave. There was a lovely marina not far off, and that was usually our destination. It was a magical journey, always filled with delight and discovery!

    Down the block from us was a corner house with a front lawn populated by half a dozen life-size ceramic chickens. We'd stop and pay our respects during our walks, but apparently looked suspicious (clad as we were in rather scanty loincloths and such).

    The occupant of the house (an elderly fellow) would glare at us out his window to insure that we intended no harm to his flock. We called him the "Chicken Man", and his house "Chicken Corner".

    One evening we were strolling by and encountered a woman on the lawn who told us that she was the visiting daughter of the owner, and that he was distraught on account of the sad fact that one of his chickens that had gone missing.

    We expressed our sympathies, and continued on with our stroll. A few blocks further on, we came upon a yard sale. Inspecting the wares, we found a ceramic chicken not unlike the ones we walked by at Chicken Corner. We purchased the critter and took it home.

    Around midnight, when we figured the Chicken Man would be sleeping, we snuck down the street to his lawn and placed the chicken we had bought in the approximate place where the missing chicken had stood. It was not the same chicken, but close enough.

    We believed that we had been unseen, though from then on, whenever we happened by Chicken Corner, the old man would wave at us and smile.

    This incredible photo marks the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera's career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. (The look on this bull's face says it all for me. Even grievously wounded by picadors, he did not attack this man.)

    Torrero Munera is quoted as saying of this moment: "And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst **** on earth."

    "Cows are amongst the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures." - Thomas de Quincey

    Growing up, we helped my Dad and Mom build a home in the country on 23 acres of land, and move from the city. My parents wanted us to have the whole experience. So we had ducks and chickens, and one bantie chicken named, "Chick-Chick-Charlie", a jackass named, Angel that bit my sister ass when she bent down, two ponys and a quarter horse, ram and sheep and black angus(es), dogs and cats, cats, cats, and what began with a couple of rabbits ended up with over one hundred.

    In theory, we were all suppose to take care of them. But being second oldest of eight, I did most of the care taking. Truth was they took care of me.

    There is that wonderful scene in Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End, where the alien craft is up above a bullfight in Spain, and as the first sword entered the bull, instantly 10,000 spectators let out an unanimous scream, as the overlord had made them all feel what the bull felt at that moment.
    And the headline in Britain the next day was the suggestion that Spain should adopt cricket as their national sport.

    Hi folks
    I've not been around for a while, not freaking out, more like "freaking in"
    I saw the bullfight thingy on another thread where it seemed slightly off-topic, so I'll copy my answer here.

    What would happen if the bull decided not to rush at the red and just trot around the ring?
    Would not the matador just look like an idiot in over tight trousers.
    Game over

    In the same vein (sorry for the thumbnails of these large paintings), here is Manet's (portrait of the artist as a) Dead Torero/Dead man. If you look at it sideways on, you will see that he is actually very much alive, performing what is known in French as a "naturelle", taking the bull on his left side. Viewed this way, it looks more like he is having an NDE.

    And here is is a testoterone-free portrait of the artist as a female bullfighter, painting not fighting:

    Weird few days.

    Lots going on, on many fronts, having trouble processing everything.
    Dreams of past loves at night, and flashbacks of childhood BS during the day.
    I also got triggered pretty majorly when i took a risk and entered the world of another.
    Still clearing up that mess from my field, then from further out.

    Of late been acutely aware of others energies, like i can feel things outside my body,
    a bit like a radar . Hard to really articulate, but it's both interesting, and disconcerting
    at the same time.. When i tune into what it is, it's either someone or something focusing on me,
    a little bit more tuning and i get an outline and a signature.

    The latest lot of flares have upset the hidden ones and we are seeing some people acting out,
    so its a good time to do this work, well easier in some respects, as they are closer to the surface.

    First job back after my move will be a big one, so i will spend the next 24- 48 hours powering up.
    Where there are children involved i don't hold back.

    And while all this is going on, I'm being nudged to do the survival prep thing, which frankly
    i was not really going to do, but looks like i need to do at least some things.
    I'm guessing its more a case of being ok, so i can continue my work when things really heat up,
    no distractions, etc...

    Anyways, thinking of you all,
    Blessings,
    Astrid

    Unfortunately there are claims of that Bull pic being a fake,
    but who knows. One of the links....

    Weird few days.

    The latest lot of flares have upset the hidden ones and we are seeing some people acting out, so its a good time to do this work, well easier in some respects, as they are closer to the surface.
    I hadn't looked at it like that. Your information opens to a fuller perspective. I'm viewing the flares as important energy downloads that assist in clarification and growth within, which also helps others.

    Quote And while all this is going on, I'm being nudged to do the survival prep thing, which frankly i was not really going to do, but looks like i need to do at least some things. I'm guessing its more a case of being ok, so i can continue my work when things really heat up, no distractions, etc...
    I've been going back and forth with this. Feed into the negative programing vs. common sense that Mother Earth is looking for a brand new make-over. This weekend, I purchased medical supplies for those that may need them. The last couple of weeks, I've added to my stash because I've raided about 50% of it from last fall. Vanity kicked in this weekend; purchased extra shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer.

    I've decided to pass on digging a hole under the pine trees where I rent in case things get really bad. I don't want my rent raised for the extra space. Balking at the idea of a packing up a quick get away bundle with important papers and such. Looks like I'm still in denial.

    Note to self: purchase extra dog food and top off gas tank today.

    UPDATE: Even if the bull fight pic is fake, it serves as an important wake up call for many more on lessons in compassion and equality for our Critter Teachers.

    "Earthrise - 'How it works' animation - Solar Blimp"

    Last fall after loosing power for 6 days, I purchased a 2'X4' solar panel that's on wheels. It also has a battery back up and wall socket power source. For now, I use it to run my little techno gadgets and fan. There's something about feeling empowered when I take actions steps to get off the grid in as many ways that I can.

    UPDATE: It's also portable, so it fits into my car.

    Cottontail bunny rabbits were munching down my corn plants in the front yard at dawn.

    And so it begins.

    I'm still looking for a portable solar panel set up that i can use,
    in the mean time, I'm pretty interested in trying solar cooking,
    this site has loads of great ovens, and the DIY options with this
    are also endless..

    I was thinking of getting a hybrid Tulsi, but don't think they are available in Aus yet.
