Big Harvest

Edible-Weeds

Almost entirely edible weeds from my raised beds, with just a few kale leaves included.

I am seriously NOT uprooting weeds, just cutting them down to within an inch or two from the ground so that they can grow back. The idea is that if they do not block sunlight from my crop plants, and if the soil is so rich that it can feed plants even if they are close together, then the weeds will not hurt my crops. In fact, at a couple of inches tall, these weeds act like mulch, keeping the soil from drying out.


Re-Create Yourself

Our species is living longer and that means that we have to become creative as we look for ways to exercise and stay mobile during our advancing years. I started inline skating more than 25 years ago and it has always been my go-to exercise.

But bodies change and age takes its toll.

I had hoped to keep skating as long as I could walk but that proved to be an unrealistic goal. Osteoarthritis has forced me to recalibrate my expectations as I try to deal with worn out joints and spine and spinal cord issues.


RoboCalls

I’ve come to expect RoboCalls. I usually get 3 or four per day. Some days I get none.
However, today I keep getting them. I estimate I’ve received at least twenty, so far.

¿Wassup?

Town of Brattleboro COVID Update June 4, 2021

” WHAT IS NEW TODAY 

• Effective today, the Selectboard has terminated the Townwide emergency order that required face coverings to be worn inside all facilities (public, private, and non-profit) where the public is invited. Individual organizations and building owners can still require face coverings at their own facilities. 

The Town of Brattleboro thanks everyone for complying with the Townwide “mask order” during the 54 weeks that it was in effect. 

• The public may now enter the Gibson Aiken Center without an appointment. 

The number of spectators is still limited for indoor programs. Masks are still required at all times while in the building. 

• At this time, masks are still required inside all Town of Brattleboro government facilities. “


VFW Operation Homefront’s Shower Update

Brattleboro VFW Post #1034 was proud to be a drop off point for Operation Homefront’s Star Spangled Babies Shower. Operation Homefront is a nonprofit that assists low-income military families. The Vermont National Guard is facing its biggest deployment in 15 years, where service members are leaving behind their families for a year or longer. A lot of the family members left behind are new mothers and some are first-time mothers.


Memorial Days

Once a year we have a day to remind us of those who have given their lives for this country as well as those we have lost over the years. When you reach a certain point in your life you experience more and more memorial days throughout the year.

Youth and growth is all about gain. We grow physically and our hopes expand into new realities as we create a career path and start to define our lives by relationships. We meet new people and we see the possibilities for making ourselves and the world a better place.

To Mask Or Not To Mask

Many of us have been wearing masks for over a year and have looked forward to the day when our faces could be on full public display. The Coronavirus is showing signs of receding, at least in this country, and vaccination numbers are increasing.

The CDC has said that fully vaccinated people can do away with masks in most public places and that they do not need to social distance. Exceptions include public transportation such as buses, airplanes and hospitals.

The new CDC guidelines are confusing a lot of people as well as states and municipalities.

The Future of Democracy: Brattleboro Democracy Forum With Nick Biddle, Tim Kipp and Friends

Nick says: A recent study of 75 nations with democratic governments in 1994 found that only 15 remain democratic. The rest (60) have turned into autocracies. Does democracy have a future?

A quadrennial report released last month by the National Intelligence Council, an advisory group to the eighteen intelligence agencies of the federal government (e.g. CIA, DEA, NSA, etc), is not optimistic. Using the report, titled “Global Trends, 2020-2040,” as a springboard, this session of the Democracy Forum will explore a prognosis for democracy’s future. Nick Biddle will open with a short presentation to which Tim Kipp will respond. General discussion will follow.

The meeting will be recorded and aired on BCTV and WVEW 107.7 FM.
