It's Been Awhile...

No blog entries since mid April. Crap!

Been really busy with work; new stuff and also catching up on old stuff after having the exhausting, non-specific, achy, feverish, unpleasantness for several days.


Also got out of the Vietnam War for a medical condition.

"Limp? Palsy? Bad eyes?"

Nope, homosexual. But much better now, thanks.


Awww, that's homophobic! I don't have to take your abuse. I've got hundreds of people willing to abuse me.

Yes, on reflection it probably is, but I thought it could be funny.

Maybe not so much, after all.


So since we last had our little chat, Oregon has gone from warm and sunny and beautiful to rain, hail, and snow !!!

Snow in Oregon in late winter / early spring !

Snow in West Linn and the Portland / Vancouver area on April 28, 2008 !

Snow in Government Camp, Oregon, at 4,500 foot elevation, today, May 9, 2008 !!!

Just like when I was a kid, we would have heavy snow years now and then. I thought those were over, as we had not had them for something like 20 - 25 years, but maybe our climate is really changing, or maybe it is cyclical, or maybe.....


AAAAAAAAAAAAUUUGGGHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Shut up, cretin!

Climate Change Is Real!

Don't you know this? Everyone knows this. Only an imbecile doesn't know this.


We Humans Have Sullied The Environment!
We Have Destroyed The Earth And All Living Creatures!
We Have Shat In Our Own Beds Like
Retarded Basset Hounds!

All right, that was good. I feel much better now. Just had to get that one out.

I suppose it's too late to re-use water bottles or turn out the lights when I leave.

Seriously, there is a floating island of plastic shit in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

It is in a dead zone, which I believe it has helped cause by covering the water with all that plastic, not letting sunlight or the normal amount of oxygen in.


What the hell are we doing to the earth?

Besides all the other problems:

Air pollution exacerbated by coal power plants in China, SUV's in America, and cattle ranching operations all over,

Polluted water poisoned by chemicals, pesticides, steroids, hormones, and MTBE from gasoline,

Tainted and infected soil which has been over-fertilized, over-farmed, and in some parts of the world, is blowing away,

We also have to now think about how our actions and products are shutting off sunlight and oxygen to the ocean.

And now there is the possibility that over-fishing the worlds oceans is leading to a collapse of fish stocks around the year 2040.

What are we thinking?

We aren't.


I don't mean to come back from my hiatus and just be a downer, but this is not good.

This is serious stuff.
