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 play-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 20, focusing on the veggie garden.

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

" How can they speak of uncontrollable global warming as a comforting relief and then go back sitting in their easy chair watching Fox news?" Easy. Greed is the perfect addiction. Far better than drugs. Nothing to smoke/snort/shoot.... and you often don't risk your own money if you're clever. In fact; your family loves your addiction. ...but it is an addiction. Withdrawal symptoms....nervous cigarette smoking....suicide....see-through lying.....the addict pays dearly if the investments fail. So because they have a lot to lose; they will lie. They will cheat. They will distort the facts. They will deny the evidence. Sound familiar? Big Tobacco (BT) did the same thing...stalled the facts for decades. Remember these? Well; the Fossil fuel consortium (the FFC) is many times bigger than BT. Expect decades of denial....like this;

Robecology comments on Sep 27, 2019:
I rarely post long, drawn-out conversations; but this is by Greta Thunberg....it's the background story for why she's so popular and inspirational. Dear world; My name is Greta Thunberg. (updated Sept 23). "Recently I’ve seen many rumors circulating about me and enormous amounts of hate. This is no surprise to me. So allow me to elaborate about what I've done, and what I am trying to do. I know that since most people are not aware of the full meaning of the climate crisis (which is understandable since it has never been treated as a crisis) a school strike for the climate would seem very strange to people in general. So let me make some things clear about my school strike. In may 2018 I was one of the winners in a writing competition about the environment held by Svenska Dagbladet, a Swedish newspaper. I got my article published and some people contacted me, among others was Bo Thorén from Fossil Free Dalsland. He had some kind of group with people, especially youth, who wanted to do something about the climate crisis. I had a few phone meetings with other activists. The purpose was to come up with ideas of new projects that would bring attention to the climate crisis. Bo had a few ideas of things we could do. Everything from marches to a loose idea of some kind of a school strike (that school children would do something on the schoolyards or in the classrooms). That idea was inspired by the Parkland Students, who had refused to go to school after the school shootings. I liked the idea of a school strike. So I developed that idea and tried to get the other young people to join me, but no one was really interested. They thought that a Swedish version of the Zero Hour march was going to have a bigger impact. So I went on planning the school strike all by myself and after that I didn’t participate in any more meetings. When I told my parents about my plans they weren’t very fond of it. They did not support the idea of school striking and they said that if I were to do this I would have to do it completely by myself and with no support from them. On the 20 of august 2018 I sat down outside the Swedish Parliament. I handed out fliers with a long list of facts about the climate crisis and explanations on why I was striking. The first thing I did was to post on Twitter and Instagram what I was doing and it soon went viral. Then journalists and newspapers started to come. A Swedish entrepreneur and business man active in the climate movement, Ingmar Rentzhog, was among the first to arrive. He spoke with me and took pictures that he posted on Facebook. That was the first time I had ever met or spoken with him. I had not communicated or encountered with him ever before. Many people love to spread...

In a weird, scientific sense, our heart does effect our emotions. We've all felt the "rush" or "fluster" of someone-something happening that rapidly increases our heartbeat. Fortunately, science does explain that it is, indeed the brain... ...but something's been left out. Hormones, and Ductless glands. You do know about the ductless glands, right? No....then please, click here... https://www.heartmath.org/research/science-of-the-heart/heart-brain-communication/ The gland that I'm talking about? Did you guess the "Adrenals"? Yep. They can give us an "injection" or hormonal juice that can make us run faster, jump higher than normal...and it can be done in very few seconds.

Let's stop ragging on Jeff. He's created a new way to shop. It's convenient, it's intelligent, it saves gas, oil, and the pollution of driving to go get stuff. One delivery truck drops off stuff to dozens of folk...saving tons of pollution. Brick and Mortar stores are dying thanks to Bezos...and tens, if not hundreds of thousands of folk have jobs thanks to him. Home Depot and Walmart are now trying the home delivery system. When there's an opening at the local Amazon warehouse there's a line around the block; folks are very willing to work there. So quit picking on Bezos. He's brilliant... If you want to pick on someone, pick on the senators and congress people that give the rich tax breaks.

Robecology comments on Sep 25, 2019:
@bigpawbullets. I stll don't get why you're so negative about "doing somethng" Living an ecological lifestyle is "doing something" Being positive about change is "doing something" Family planning...is doing something. Reading this is "doing something" - it's not just adapting. I'm convinced that we will do things to slow down this crisis. I'm convinced we will do more than "adapt"... We used to use whale oil. Then we went to fossil fuels. Now we're going to alternative energy; and family planning is taking hold. Now the new energy is solar - direct (photovoltiac - P.V. and hot water heaters....did you know that more than half of all Chinese use solar hot water?) and indirect (running water - not just rivers, but tidal flows and waves) and wind. We used to be increasing at over 200 per minute. now that's down to 158 per minute (births minus deaths)...so even family planning is taking hold....and we are projected to reach ZPG by the end of this century. http://www.poodwaddle.com/worldclock/ Those of us who are concerned will do much more than adapt. I'm sorry you apparently won't. Folks like you who see the wisdom of living for the moment, profiting from environmental degredation (The FFC; the fossil fuel consortium) and not caring about the future will throw their hands up and say... "there is nothing that we as a species can do about stopping it." Folks like me will say "hold my beer"....

I@bigpawbullets; I'm disappointed in you. I thought you were wiser. t's been proven (and denied by major oil companies) that Climate change IS caused by humans. The temp rise has been proven to coincide with CO2 for hundreds of thousands of years... ...and right now we're at the highest levels in many decades. I won't bother showing you evidence; whoever posted this originally is trolling for a debate based on false statements...and that doesn't deserve a professional debate answer. Humans are increasing at the rate of 158 more births than deaths, per minute. That alone...not counting the increased need for energy and transportation...results in a rapid growth of GH gases. ...and proof that CO2 is a greenhouse gas is a junior hs experiment. Again...the joke is on you, @bigpawbullets, for posting such a clearly arrogant, ignorant, misleading image/post. I urge you to take it down.

So I'm sensing, as jerry99 seems to be doing as well....that the Dems in power know they're wasting their time and efforts to go against the Republicans now. It will take a massive sea-change in 2020 to bring back the sanity, the science, and the ecology of sophisticated rule. The image says it for me....

Too many links for one post; and mostly posted by one person of unknown repute.
Perhaps sometimes a collection in a tiny space is good, like this one I saw the other day.
Robecology comments on Sep 22, 2019:
Charming....and that's a lot of work!
Quite the Walmart outfit.
Robecology comments on Sep 22, 2019:
THIS is why we need another group; this is NOT Classy. Call it "Sexy-Trashy" or Young 'n' Sexy...but this is not classy at all. Sexy? Sure...but so inappropriate to be "putting it out there" while shopping...
Good Sunday morning! It's pose-your-question-day! The rule: pose your question as a comment and ...
Robecology comments on Sep 22, 2019:
OK... I was so impressed when I signed on to "Agnostic,com"...easy to post, easy to navigate, decent, civil and quick replies. I came here because I thought it was a "free dating site" but have since just enjoyed the chatter and have had no "dates"...and that's actually working fine for me. I was also impressed with the perks...from forming my own groups to getting the T shirt! So that leads me to the question; why did you sign on to Agnostic.com? Why do you prefer it as a social media?

I concur with the beauty of a monoculture border...but that spike is definitely not Verbena bonarensis. If you google it and type in images...you get things like this; https://www.google.com/url?sa=i=j&q==s=images&cd==2ahUKEwjkiMngwuTkAhUQrVkKHafrDqIQjRx6BAgBEAQ=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.123rf.com%2Fphoto_60628211_verbena-flowers-in-garden-flowering-verbena-bonariensis-common-lantana-flower.html=AOvVaw22M5dITOtLNMw9eJoDhQTE=1569244840042430

Robecology comments on Sep 22, 2019:
I think it's strategy. They've tried...and they see that the Admin/Republican attorneys are technically constitutionally correct. Let's be patient. Let's trust the Dems in power. I think they're working toward a serious, strong, complete sweep and "house" cleaning in 2020. In the meantime....I'm on my third dozen of these. If you know my address, send me a SASE and I'll send you one... Better yet; Buy 'em, Wear 'em and Share 'em.... Website is on the pin image.

Good Afternoon Everyone! Does anyone like being single? I personally hate dating. Went to a singles...
Robecology comments on Sep 21, 2019:
It is, indeed, a challenge to be "paired up" with someone. You have to sacrifice, and bend, and tolerate certain things....and in exchange you're rewarded with intimacy and children. There's a lot of wisdom to the person that finds themselves single, alone...and complete! It's easy to explain biologically; whenever any species gets too crowded there's a natural turn-off of the mating drive. Any student of Ecology will vouch for me here. So my strategy is - put myself out there. When someone's very in tune with me...and lives close to me...they'll find me. ....and vice-versa. I am focusing, right now, on loving myself -alone - as I am - with all my flaws....perfect. ....but if anyone's ready for "my kind of perfection" please do get in touch!
What are you?
Robecology comments on Sep 21, 2019:
Paganism is #Religulous....just like Christianity and other myth worshipers. "Embrace the godless and god-free"....not "the god and goddess..." Remember what Agnosticism means...
Remember a way back when?

Robecology comments on Sep 20, 2019:
The crust in that pie isn't a saltine...it looks quite thick. Just make a crust like that pie - only flat....then go at it with the toppings. There's high protein flours you can use as well. I'd experiment with ultra-thin crusts, and high protein toppings. The less carbs the better for any diet.

Robecology comments on Sep 20, 2019:
I'm never saying "Bernie or bust"....it's that attitude that got a lot of Bernie supporters who stayed home in 2016...and let Trump in. So I implore Bernie supporters....don't go down that road again. Watch the primaries. Scrape together your cash and mail it in to him when you can....but if another candidate "gets the nod" ....support them. Bernie will continue to work for us no matter where he is.
I am loving Keto, losing weight, and dinner is a thing of beauty!
Robecology comments on Sep 20, 2019:
Call it Keto. Call it Adkins. I'm sure the root of America's issues is the excessive carbs. Big breads. Rice and Potatoes. Pasta. Just cut down these items...you will lose weight. I cut my bagels and english muffins twice;to make them ultra thin (yes...very carefully) but worth it. I haven't had potatoes, regular loaf bread, or rice in ages.
What happens if tRump gets indicted?
Robecology comments on Sep 20, 2019:
Then closet pseudo-gay #religulous Pence moves in, immediately declares a presidential pardon for Trump...and he then goes gofling on our dime, and making money from his realestate holdings.
Climate Change: The Trouble With Trees [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Sep 20, 2019:
So #1. Earth is only 30% land. #2. Only 25% of that land is covered with forests; for a total earthly percentage of 7.5% CO2/O2 exchange. Even is we allow for 50% of our land coverage to become more forest-covered...that's still only 15% of world-wide total oxygen production. #3. Oceans cover 70% of the the planet. Our real name should be planet Ocean. #4. 90% of the ocean is where most (70-80%) of our oxygen comes from #5. Oceans are where we still dump our most toxic, most dangerous wastes. #6. Let's stop struggling with tree planting, and look toward cleaner oceans and healthier phyto-plankton; the microscopic pre-plants that gave us most of our Oxygen in the first place. https://eos.org/research-spotlights/worlds-biggest-oxygen-producers-living-in-swirling-ocean-waters

Biden support falls, Sanders gains in new polling [msnbc.]
Robecology comments on Sep 19, 2019:
Biden did well with Obama....but he's showing that he's in deciine. He means well...but I hope he "bows out" before the primaries. He'd make a good Secretary of State...or even a Cabinet member; but this ticket belongs to Sanders and Warren.

Robecology comments on Sep 19, 2019:
So their main concern is that the F1 generation didn't create enough infertility (3-6%) to be significant, and within a few generatiosn (months) that infertility trait was lost? NBD....except that millions spent on research means the experiment failed and they need to re-start with more passable traits.

Robecology comments on Sep 19, 2019:
Yes. And Unfortunately, being a retired science and health teacher ..my BP would go that high - and even higher - when I "partook" in Cannabis....which made me eventually quit. When you have two Sphygmomanometers around you tend to check this carefully. Mine did go that high...and I don't want to die while I'm high.

BAM! Your last words nailed it for me; "Going forward, the Warren-Sanders dynamic could be equally important." THAT's the ticket I will donate for, and work for.

I've given to Sanders four separate times; 3 times in 2015 and 2016, and once, when he entered the race earlier this year. My fifth time will be if he wins the nomination.
At best, I see Warren as Bernie-lite. At worst, a corporatist kneecapper meant to try to take the ...

I took this photo. One of my best.
Robecology comments on Sep 18, 2019:
That's not an easy pic to take....looking right in to the sun. Keep that up....try different exposures....different times... I notice you're tilted off the horizontal....try to get a totally horizontal pic. Clean your lens well to avoid that purple smudge.
Black or white? Which do you prefer?
Robecology comments on Sep 18, 2019:
That high-thigh cut has phased out of popularity....and I don't know why. I love the look...either color. Kudos!
Solitude is often a hard pill to swallow.
Robecology comments on Sep 18, 2019:
If you say "Solitude is often a hard pill to swallow." Why quote something which is asking you not to fear "that pill"? It's been my experience that if you do, indeed "swallow that pill" you'll be amazed at the benefits....you should not only "not fear the process" but "welcome" it. You entered this world in solitude. You will leave it the same way. Embrace it.
Is there a group here called Agnostic Faith? Or was there?
Robecology comments on Sep 18, 2019:
Agnostic means "unknown" or Not aware, or unproven. It doesn't depend on "faith". Quite the opposite - Agnosticism abhors faith, leans strongly toward facts, evidences and proofs. As @CutieBeauty put it...it's an "oxymoron" to call agnosticism a "faith"...it's a thought system that is the opposite of faith.
How Tall Can Mountains Get? [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Sep 17, 2019:
Mountains rise because Granite is less dense than Basalt....Hence granitic rocks "float" on the mantle, Basaltic rocks sink. As long as the core is fluid and plastic, mountains will rise...and as long as wind and rain occurs, they will be eroded. It's this rate of rise and erosion that separates the Rockies from the Alps and the Alps from the Appalachians and Catskills.
They're everywhere!
Robecology comments on Sep 17, 2019:
The opposite of being "Cunstipated"? Perhaps Dicktated? Let's not be afraid of male nor female strength. Let's stop the name calling - of either sex - and try to work together?
