I'm a retired science and health teacher and tutor (taught 1967 to 2012), and a father of two successful, independent adults (one step-, one that I'm in touch with often). I'm a grandpa to one grand- and one grand .

I consider myself quite fit, and healthy! Full head of hair, and close to ideal weight. I get a workout in every day! Sweating is in my daily -book!

I do volunteer work a local botanical garden that's famous having the biggest/best Bonsai collection in America!.

Search Botanical garden in Ft. Pierce, Florida.

I've been there since 2016, focusing on the veggie garden.

See my pics of me working the veggies and helping with the Garden of Lights!

The "White" sub-species (technically sub because it's been well known for a while now that we're all one species) are allegedly from the "Caucasus mountain range of Northern Turkey and southern Russia.

What do you mean "we"? There's all sorts of folk out there - the ones who seem to sacrifice the sanity and morality seem far more like Trump supporters than Trump haters. The eloquence, the wisdom, the sophistication of Obama made us proud - even those who harbored some racial biases - to have such an articulate, considerate president. This person who holds the office now - what a sad, sorry example of an allegedly rich person. The point of getting rid of Trump is to get someone in the office with wisdom, maturity, and honesty. Trump's obviously lacking in those features.

I've been a user...never an abuser....up until just a few years ago...and I started in the mid 60's fresh out of college. I quit for two reasons; #1; When you are young - it's OK to be ravenously hungry and unforgiveably, foolishly forgetful. When you're older...it's called Obesity and Dimentia. The fun just went away. #2. Blood pressure and pulse changes. I'm now on two different blood pressure meds...and one time when stoned I took my BP...then retook it...then took it again...and that did it for me.

The last paragraph in the article is so important; "The path is clear. The way to defeat Trump is to raise turnout among traditional non-voters. To do that, Democrats not only have to fight for mail-in ballots but also articulate an affirmative vision for the future that speaks to the needs of working class people of all races."

This vine is trying to suffocate the tree! (today's walk)
Robecology comments on Apr 26, 2020:
The vine has no "intention" to suffocate - it's called an "Advantitious symbiosis" where one plant survives and thrives based on taking advantage of another. I don't think there's any evidence of the trees dying from the parasitism....in fact...it's to the parasite's advantage to keep the host alive. Here's an image of a tree that I posted recently that has a famous habit of literally "strangling" trees that it vines around....but it's evolution makes it work because it only attacks mature or old trees. I'm also sharing an image of a palm tree that ends up being a symbiotic home for certain species of ferns. It happens often in nature. Post edit; something's not right with the picture uploads...they're being "rotated"....they're right-side-up in my collection.

Robecology comments on Apr 24, 2020:
Kurt wasn't just a good writer; he might be considered one of the best writers in modern history. Vonnegut had been writing about his war experiences at Dresden ever since he returned from the war, but had never been able to write anything acceptable to himself or his publishers—Chapter 1 of Slaughterhouse-Five tells of his difficulties. Released in 1969, the novel rocketed Vonnegut to fame. It tells of the life of Billy Pilgrim, who like Vonnegut was born in 1922 and survives the bombing of Dresden. The story is told in a non-linear fashion, with many of the story's climaxes—Billy's death in 1976, his kidnapping by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore nine years earlier, and the execution of Billy's friend Edgar Derby in the ashes of Dresden for stealing a teapot—disclosed in the story's first pages. In 1970, he was also a correspondent in Biafra during the Nigerian Civil War. Slaughterhouse-Five received generally positive reviews, with Michael Crichton writing in The New Republic, "he writes about the most excruciatingly painful things. His novels have attacked our deepest fears of automation and the bomb, our deepest political guilts, our fiercest hatreds and loves. No one else writes books on these subjects; they are inaccessible to normal novelists." The book went immediately to the top of The New York Times Best Seller list. Vonnegut's earlier works had appealed strongly to many college students, and the antiwar message of Slaughterhouse-Five resonated with a generation marked by the Vietnam War. He later stated that the loss of confidence in government that Vietnam caused finally allowed for an honest conversation regarding events like Dresden. If you have some time; this study of Vonnegut, is, in itself...a great story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Vonnegut

China tried - with mixed results - to enforce the 1-child limits. They had limited success. The greater promise is education; yes; the world is getting smarter....and the wiser are catching on to the cost to raise a child - both financial and emotional. So the population growth curve is not growing as it was decades ago...but it's still growing. Developed nations like growth. All DN's have tax incentives for larger families. And the UDN (under-developed nations) are going through what us demographers call a "Demographic transition". The big question is will we transition to end fossil fuels, mitigate climate change, and slow the growth in time to prevent a catastrophic collapse? Remember this little simple observation, made by Thomas R. Malthus - the father of Demography made in 1812 - over 200 years ago; "As the quantity of life (in any given area) increases, the quality of life decreases". He made this comment in one of his papers criticizing London's growth - and the world was just turning 1 billion when he wrote this. Today we are a 7.7 billion, and increasing (births minus deaths) at the rate of 158 per minute, 227,000 per day, 1.59 million per week) https://www.worldometers.info http://www.bitsofscience.org/21st-century-forecasts-for-sea-level-rise-and-world-population-growth-7279/

Robecology comments on Apr 22, 2020:
BTW, Ed, Happy 50th anniversary of Earth Day; Today, April 22, 2020. And as an ecologist who's also constantly challenged with weight maintenance, I have a bone to pick with you. - - - - - I love your devotion to B.O. - but I can't concur with your comment " Each person who changes their diet to vegan does about the same to combat climate change as driving an electric vehicle." Driving an EV is far more helpful to the environment than going vegan. The whole animal farming industry adds as low as 5% and as high as 10% of G.W. gases...compared to 50-55% for gas driven vehicles. Driving a I.C.E.(internal combustion engine) car produces pounds of CO2 per mile....changing to an EV saves thousands of pounds per year of this gas going in to the atmosphere. And even if the EV is powered by central power (Coal 25-30% Petrol 55-60% Wind, hydro, nuclear 10-20%) it's still 100% more efficient than individual cars. Does going vegan make you healthier? No doubt. Is it better for the environment? of Course. but it's not the same as driving an EV. And neither have much of an effect on the environment. "Going vegetarian actually is quite difficult: One large U.S. survey indicates that 84% of people fail, most of them in less than a year. But a systematic peer-reviewed study has shown that, even if they succeed, their vegetarian diets reduce individual CO2 emissions by the equivalent of 540 kilos — or just 4.3% of the emissions of the average inhabitant of a developed country. Furthermore, there is a “rebound effect,” as money saved on cheaper vegetarian food is spent on goods and services that cause additional greenhouse-gas emissions. Once we account for this, going entirely vegetarian reduces a person’s total emissions by only 2%". https://www.marketwatch.com/story/your-electric-car-and-vegetarian-diet-are-pointless-virtue-signalling-in-fighting-climate-change-2019-12-26

Robecology comments on Apr 21, 2020:
My day is 90% computer interaction; here, on Facebook, and on Words with friends - and occasional Email. I'm trying to cook simply and eat wisely; maintaining a decent weight for my height. No pets, the only TV is the music channel; no ads. just smooth Jazz. I do get out almost every day for an hour, and bike ride 6 to 9 miles...nice quiet trails near my home. so to sum up; my home; Home/house #7? decent Library/Kindle fire. Good computer connection/laptop no pets No drugs light food only music (until 9 PM...then I turn on Maddow).
Mystery solved
