Radioactive waste from 43 nuclear explosions is LEAKING into the Pacific because a reinforced concrete dome built by the US military on an island to store it is disappearing under the sea
Reality of dealing with nuclear waste..
- The Enewetak Atoll was used by the US to test weapons between 1948 and 1958
- More than 8,000 people would later work to clean up these Pacific islands
- This shifted 110,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil and debris into a crater
- But now, with the dome weathered by decades of exposure, it’s feared rising seas and storms could see radiation leaking into the ocean
Remember in 1993 when 400 FBI confidential files on Reagan and Bush appointees turned up in the White House? – Clintons Have Been Using the FBI Against Their Enemies for Years
The United States government has a long history of breaking legally binding agreements with Native Americans. This action is happening in present day. It should be stopped. The USA should be pressured into upholding past agreements. The Apache peoples rights should be guarded and protected by the people of the world. They are trying to protect the planet for all of us.
Katniss is real, and she is an Apache.
While we were all looking the other way, sacred Apache land (that was also property of the American people as a whole) was sold to an Australian-British mining company that will soon have the rights to leave a 2-mile crater in the area. How did this happen? Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake slipped the deal in at the last minute at the bottom of a much-needed military defense spending bill. Apache have been camped out on the sacred site of Oak Flat ever since, and this young warrior, along with a handful of others, traveled to NYC all the way from Arizona to try to bring attention to her people’s plight.
Let’s help this story spread and let this real life rebel know that she is not alone, and that the American people…

Last Saturday, I attended the Second Annual Women’s March Monterey Bay, held at California State University Monterey Bay. I estimate about 2000 women, men, and children gathered for this event. Energy was high, pink hats could be seen everywhere, and many people carried placards inscribed with sentiments close to their hearts. The Women’s March is […]
It is cold outside. Powdered snow covers the landscape. It is gorgeous outside. The sun goes down early and the temperature drops. We woke up earlier this week because our puppy was crying because she was cold. The furnace has gone out sometime in the night. The machine that feeds the sawdust into the furnace jammed because of ice forming on some of the sawdust. The furnace went out because there it was empty. Thankfully that has not happened in a couple of years. It was cold inside the house. It took over 6 hours to warm the house back up once the restarted the furnace. I lite heat candles in the house and turned the oven to heat the house back up, While the furnace was being restarted.
This is the time of year I catch up on sewing and mending. I love to read a lot. I have been a book-worm all of my life. I buy a lot of books to read during this time of year. I look up things on-line. I am trying to teach myself to crochet and to bake bread this year. I will post later on that.
I am such a fan of Mother Earth News. Here is a great article about planting flower with your vegetables. We have never done that before. It is something to read up on and to look into it.
It has been an eventful year. We did have a small garden this year. We have had such hot weather during the spring and summer. It was difficult to keep it alive. We had very little rain. Our well went dry again. We used lake water to get us through the dry spell. Thank God for electric pumps and a kind landlord.
We had a hard time keeping our garden watered. We had rain water in the barrels and then we had a water tank. We planted everything in June direct into the garden. Some crops never had time to mature. We knew that was a real possibility, but we thought we would try none the less. We definitely reaffirmed our belief that it is necessary to plant early in the house and poly-tunnel
We have to Our cucumbers gave us a small harvest I was only able to pickle small batch of 6 small jars. Hubby and I were fighting over the pickles. They turned out so good. I can’t wait for this years garden. I plan to can a lot of pickles this year. We need to restock our shelves.
I was operated on in May. We could see Dixie, Our thirteen year old dog, was fading fast. We were hoping that we would have one more summer with her. When we left for the hospital, I asked her to wait to go until I came home. She held on for a month more. Coco woke us in a panic leading me into the living room. Dixie had a stroke in the night and was paralyzed on one side of her body….. We had to put her down. She will be missed. Today is her birthday.
We picked up this little bundle of joy yesterday. Hubby named her Lucy after Lucille Ball on sight. She has reddish brown hair and green eyes. Her name fits her personality. I heard Hubby telling her this morning,” You have some xplainin to do Lucy”. She had messed on the floor. I laughed. He did a pretty good imitation of Desi Arnez.
I need to up date My blog. I have to relearn WordPress because they have made so many changes on the site. I just wanted to up date you. I wish everyone a Happy New Year. I have been experimenting on making Sour dough starter. I have copied a lot of sour dough recipes from Pinterest. I have been experimenting on different recipes. I have been determined to learn the art of making bread. Hubby has been tickled pink with my progress. I will start to post some recipes soon.
A recent study from University of Canterbury in New Zealand shows that glyphosate (Roundup) and other commonly used herbicides can make bacteria quickly adapt and resist antibiotics like ampicillin and tetracycline. Glyphosate, 2,4-D (dioxin) and dicamba (recently approved by the FDA) appear to disable the antibiotics and trigger bacterial resistance to them.
Researchers tested E. coli and Salmonella, two of the most deadly and widespread bacteria in the world, and consistently replicated their results
The dosage required to induce antibiotic resistance was small, comparable to the concentration found in household use or agriculture, but higher than the concentration of incidental residue found in food. However researchers cautioned that people could easily reach this threshold by consuming large quantities of food with small amounts of residue, through children and pets exposed to weed killers used on lawns or via livestock pastured in spray drift zones.
Growing antibiotic resistance is already increasing…

2014 Clinton Foundation tax return. They took in $177 million, donated $5 million, spent $86 million doing it, and kept the $86 million change
The truth about the Clinton foundations
‘Before reading this, find a big, strong clothespin. Check that. Find a large steel industrial clamp. Clamp both nostrils shut before you begin reading, as a stench is going to fill the room the likes of which you have never experienced before and will never want to experience.
I’m not an accountant, but how the hell do you receive $177 million in contributions and spend $86 million in expenses to donate a measly $5 million in actual charity donations? The uber-corrupt Clinton Foundation managed to that in 2014. And they kept the $86 million change! WTF!?
From Thomas Ventimiglia
This should be investigated: Spent $86 million in salaries and expense to donate $5.1 million.
Read it again!
And when she didn’t win, the donations completely stopped and they closed the business.’
