    doug Sosa: there is a water sensory connection to turn it off, but it showed "on" when there is no rain, so..
    doug Sosa: no watering.

    Riddle Sideways: the intent of my family to emerse selfs in music retreat
    doug Sosa: that sounds pretty good actually.

    Archmage Atlantis: If I may ask, Riddle, where are your hoses geographically

    Riddle Sideways: yes, I live in the valley
    Riddle Sideways: only been to tassajara twice
    Riddle Sideways: wild fire went through there last year
    Riddle Sideways: many monks stayed (where they were not suppose to) to fight fire
    Riddle Sideways: it went right aroun the main buildings
    doug Sosa: read about it. Relation to land and building is good PaB topic.
    doug Sosa: mental landscape and "ral" landscape.
    doug Sosa: ra;=real
    Archmage Atlantis: Weather outcomes are always peculiar......The one house that stands or has it's roof after a cat 5

    Riddle Sideways: Doug, both you and I need to splerg and buy new keyboardds the can speel
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    doug Sosa: right. my "t" especially is unresponsive :)
    doug Sosa: actually, new fingers and brain would help.
    Riddle Sideways: :) , yes me too
    doug Sosa: especially if hard wired to the letters.
    Riddle Sideways: I livied in Fla. 1972 through a pretty big blow
    Archmage Atlantis: I've been trying to get the mic and voice sw to work
    Riddle Sideways: livied in cal for some big shakes
    Archmage Atlantis: The neuropathy is a pretty good excuse
    Archmage Atlantis: 72, let me think

    doug Sosa: i listened to a talk last night that compared the speed of things: technology, culture, nature - and said that now nature instead of being slow and reliable, is changing the fastest.
    Riddle Sideways: really?
    Archmage Atlantis: I agree with that assessment
    doug Sosa: http://webbtv.compodium.se/tallberg09/ondemand/002/
    Riddle Sideways: TY
    doug Sosa: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: That's why I think evolutionary pressure on all species, including us, is about to "go off the scale"
    doug Sosa: Yes. well, pressure yes, can we evolve? Maybe not. People want to change but power doesn't want to dsrupt the golden egg.
    Archmage Atlantis: Some people want change......most still just want what they want
    Archmage Atlantis: That was a bit pessimisstic, sorry
    doug Sosa: i am going to have to leave at the bell, back to the watering system. Hadn't been working for a week and i didn't notice. Things are dry.
    Archmage Atlantis: Take care Doug
    Riddle Sideways: ok, happy watering
    Archmage Atlantis: Have an eggplant for me
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care doug
    doug Sosa: I think most people get it, leadership is lacking because the pressure on them is to not change anything.
    doug Sosa: bye.

    Yakuzza Lethecus: eggplant ?
    Riddle Sideways: The image of Doug (who starts us talking of world powers changing) with a little water can
    Riddle Sideways: sprinkling the eggplant
    Archmage Atlantis: We were talking about his garden vegies yesterday
    Yakuzza Lethecus: aubergine
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah k :)
    Riddle Sideways: power hungry leaders will lead change as long as we follow
    Archmage Atlantis: Funny, aubergine is a "high class" word for eggplant in the US, at least the parts I've lived in
    Archmage Atlantis: Riddle, I have to digest that
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s just the german word for the fruit
    Archmage Atlantis: I know
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i guess it´s not even german :P
    Archmage Atlantis: French
    Yakuzza Lethecus: doesn´t sound like german, but we use that
    Yakuzza Lethecus: right
    Riddle Sideways: better then calling it both a plant and an egg
    Archmage Atlantis: Even the British use it, but somehow it got to be eggplant in American english
    Riddle Sideways: a name that makes kidds not want to eat it
    Archmage Atlantis: That and bad preparation
    Archmage Atlantis: It wasn't till there was a significant Italian influx that it began to make inroads
    Archmage Atlantis: I'm still "riddling" your power hungry leaders comment, Riddle :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: lol, maybe children eat everything when it´s also intoxicated with television fast food, let´s call it dragonballfruit or what ever children are intoxicated by in the mass media :P
    Riddle Sideways: yes, that would work
    Archmage Atlantis: Yak there is a time I would have moderated that statement, but not any more
    Yakuzza Lethecus: can you elaborate on that ?
    Archmage Atlantis: Agribusiness would add corn based sweetener, and artificial color, and chemical preservatives
    Archmage Atlantis: It wasn't till Alice Waters and the organic movement that we really started to look at what the food industry was actually doing
    Archmage Atlantis: Making food addictive or as you said, intoxicating
    Riddle Sideways: day glo chocolate sugarbombs cerial vs. brown ol granola
    Archmage Atlantis: Not evil per se, but have worked in the Corp world too long to not be aware of how we all "lie" to ourselves for profit and gains of many kinds
    Archmage Atlantis: We don't even know we are, because we accept the system as it works now
    Archmage Atlantis: And to change anything requires convincing so many others
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i think the problem is also related to the issue that there are no absolute truth about nutritiion,health
    Yakuzza Lethecus: there are studies and papers setting things sometimes with a positive and negative connotation, a glass of whine prevents heart desease, with fancy explainations
    Yakuzza Lethecus: then i heard in another media show that that is not even absolutly clear...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: there are always interests hidden
    Archmage Atlantis: Even the most honest studies are incomplete......Our bodies differ.....some are allergic to peanut.....most are not
    Archmage Atlantis: Thus, a scientific study with a large random sample could conclude the risk of eating peatnuts is acceptable
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or the issue of how much coffee is still healty ?
    Archmage Atlantis: But if you are the allergic one, dead is dead
    Riddle Sideways: or corn syrip is good for corp american
    Archmage Atlantis: Corn sweetener also is more addictive than most sugars...
    Archmage Atlantis: Although that is hidden behind cost explanations
    Riddle Sideways: ah. "hidden behind explanations" I likethat
    Archmage Atlantis: I fairly credible theory is that the burgeoning weight problem with the young is less a problem of exercise than of the addictive nature and ill effects of the practices of the food industry
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, now I really want some of Doug
    Archmage Atlantis: 's vegies
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe :)
    Archmage Atlantis: And it is time for me to depart
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: See you all later
    Riddle Sideways: ok, bye
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye arech
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i also got to go, so also bye to you riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: so do I
    Riddle Sideways: bye, Yakuzza
