Young and Restless Tomatoes

Friday yowls, my glorious and gifted Felines... it’s summer warm temps on the tame prairie, however, and happy mews, the air is nice and dry... guess what? The Kougaress has discovered two more upstart little tomato plantlies... one tiny one, and another plantly not at as large as the first one... will they survive, will there be actual tomatoes? ... stay tuned to the Young and Restless Tomatoes...

Okay, this Big Cat learned something last night listening to Coast to Coast am... that rather blew her away. One of the guests, David Sereda, talked about his experience cleaning up the oil spill in Alaska from the Valedez. His boss discovered that using what is called COTTON WASTE FIBER sucks up the oil, clean as the proverbial whistle. David said they could simply lay the fibers on the oil, and they would soak it up. After that, he could pick up the clumps of fibers and not get a drop on his hands. It seems that when the cotton seed oil is processed out of the cotton fibers, they are so hungry for oil, they’ll greedily suck up any kind of oil.

WHY??? OH, WHY, aren’t they using it to save the gulf?

It’s not like they haven’t been told. It’s not like a demonstration of effectiveness hasn’t been done to prove it.

In fact, there are lots of good ways and technologies, including Kevin Costner’s oil separating machines, which have been donated. These work, but BP is refusing to use them. No, they are dumping in chemicals, that are, in fact, much more dangerous to humans, animals and the environment, than the oil, itself.


Authoress news and mews ~

The Kougar is blogging Friday, June 4th at THE ROMANCE STUDIO BLUE ~ Here’s the beginning...

Everything is just perfect... until HE blocks your sun.
Summer! It’s almost here. Time to plan for some fun in the sun. Since I’m nowhere near a white-sand beach with inviting turquoise waters, I have to live vicariously. What better way than to let my writerly imagination take over, and write flash fiction?

Send some good vibes, my Big Cats. This was on ROMANCE WRITERS BEHAVING BADLY ~

The planet Mars, which has been in fiery Leo for an exceptionally long time (since last October), makes one final aspect on June 4 as it opposes (180 degrees) Neptune across the zodiac. These are entirely different energies. Mars is assertive, go-ahead, energetic and decisive. Whereas Neptune is vague, dreamy, and lack-lustre, with a can?t be bothered attitude. This is an odd combination.

Neptune is the oceanic watery planet so you may feel as if your will-power and motivation are being dissolved. Nothing feels as if it is going to plan. You may even smell failure in the air. Don't panic even if you feel slightly paralyzed. There's a way of turning this pause to your advantage.

If your physical energy is low, then sit down. Use the time to think. Mars and Neptune aspects can bring inspirations. It will also point out where you haven't thought things through well enough so you can remedy that. Mars has a habit especially in a fire sign of going full steam ahead but isn't always good about allowing you to recharge your batteries. Savor some down time with this transit.

The positive side of Mars, Neptune can bring glamour even publicity your way. There's a show biz feel to it with Neptune bringing dreams to life, with Mars powering up your motor.

Just take it steady until Mars moves into earthy Virgo on June 6. That's when you get real, get focused on details and really start shifting projects in the right direction. Maybe you will also imagine no one can do anything as well as you, so you will get impatient at other people's mistakes and dithering. Maybe this is the time to become more independent. Do your own thing and take pride in a job well done.

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~ from the Flash Cat...

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 522 ~

Sylva took a breath, then several breaths. “Not good odds,” her cowboy husband uttered after a moment. His eyes were solemn, yet he quirked a small grin. “Could those from this Earth be in league with the bad guys here?” she asked. He settled them in a more comfortable position. “Could be our bad guys are your Earth’s bad guys. You said ‘take over the world’. What does that mean on your Earth?” Sylva wondered how best to explain what she only knew a little about. “Beyond the obvious, that the big corporations are basically controlling my Earth, the Bilderberg...”

Zeke started as a nasty jolt traveled through his middle. “Bilderberg,” he repeated when his Sylva paused. “Some mucky muck group of ultra wealthy control freaks who want a world government. They’ve pulled off all sorts of mafia-like crimes to scare people into believing that’s the solution. So, I understand from the research I did. It’s not like they want a democracy or anything like that. I should say they don’t want a republic.” She sighed, his woman. It poured out from the innermost depths of her. “The unwashed masses.” Zeke let those words slowly, reluctantly pour out of him.

Ooh, bring on the Cotton Waste Fibers and the oil separating machines...heck, anything that will clean up the heart-breaking mess that's been made! :(

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, I so wish the folks down in that area would just take over and kick BP out. They could clean up the mess much better in the long run.
Meanwhile, bill the effing bastards and put them out of business... forever!!!

Serena Shay said...

Now there's a very good idea! He who maketh the mess, digs into their ultra deep pockets to pay to fix the mess! Sadly, it will end up being the masses that pay and pay and pay...

Savanna Kougar said...

Yeah, that's the way it's been. I say then, we, the people, might as well take over and say 'screw you' to BP and all those big corps like them... and quit buying from them as much as we can... starve them out!
