The New/Old Currency... it's time...

Big Cat swimming is a good thing, right now.

Late night mews with views, my weekender wise and wonderful Pussycats... yep, still hot-hot on the tame prairie... however, so far, claws crossed, there are no rolling brown outs, black outs... whatever... like Detroit is scheduled to get, or is getting... yowl and howl about a recipe for societal disaster, and a totally unnecessary one at that. There is plenty of energy to be had by using alcohol and/or hemp as a fuel, and by using solar energy systems, as well. This would be at a lesser cost to the consumer, once the systems are up and running.

Really, get out of the major cities, darling Big Cats, please. This is just the beginning of the madness.

The New/Old Currency... it’s time... back in the times of the Great Depression, there were communities, towns, and smaller cities where the people set up their own currency system sometimes called script. Obviously, they did quite well, overall, especially in comparison to those who remained at the mercy of the federal reserve dollar.

Given said ‘currently-devaluing-dollar’ is dropping like a rock into the depths of the Grand Canyon, with no hope of survival, and not that many gulps of air left... there are groups of folks setting up local currencies/economies, and buying products and services from each other.

One of these groups is in Austin, Texas, as talked about on the POWER HOUR radio show by Beth Taylor, independent entrepreneur. The Kougaress has heard of many others, who are follow a similar path. Catherine Austin Fitts ~ ~ big-time economic advisor, is leading the charge. How this Big Cat wishes she had such a local community.

Authoress news and mews ~

Okay, the Kougar is looking at a possible plan to Indie publish her SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS novella, White Fang, Ace Reporter... currently about half-finished. She’s been inspired by many on-the-cutting-edge authors, and was recently inspired by Eve Langlais, author of Delicate Freakn' Flower ~ ~ Eve’s shapeshifter erotic romance is doing great at ALLROMANCEEBOOKS. Check it out, shapeshifter lovers.

BIG MAGICKAL THANK YOU'S TO EVERYONE WHO HAS PURCHASED Kandy Apple and Her Hellhounds!!! Glittery goodness coming your way.


Why Do We Have To Go?
by Serena Shay

Wow, Hawke and the crew were quite verbal today. ~wink~ Enjoy!


Ally stepped from the manager’s office determined to keep the tears at bay until she could get to their room and get packed. The death grip she had on the room keys spoke volumes to her exhausted, overwrought brain. She hadn’t even gotten to the point of begging for a reprieve before…

“Mom, Rosie’s crazy.”

“Am not!”

“I’m bored.”

“Enough!” Ally reprimanded her crew in a quiet tone, hoping to get them upstairs without any full on temper tantrums. “We are going back to the room, quietly.”

The Sun Soars into Leo!

The sensitive Cancer Sun has been jarred, jerked and jolted by Pluto, Uranus and Saturn these last couple weeks, and it's resulted in a fairly bumpy month so far. But on July 23, as the Sun moves into fiery and flamboyant Leo, all the emotional turmoil will fade and you'll be excited to embrace everything the Universe throws your way!

Sitting comfortably in the fun-loving sign it rules, the Sun in Leo exudes confidence and a distinct joie de vivre. Leo is a sign that loves to party and socialize, and it wants nothing to do with the negative side of life! As such, you'll find that even if problems arise, they'll simply roll off your back and you'll be able to move on without even breaking stride.

These good times may not come cheaply, as Leo loves to live a five-star life. Still, right now fortune definitely favors the bold, so don't be afraid to grab life by the horns. Do everything with extra flair -- and have fun flaunting it!

Leo may enjoy being the center of attention and putting on a show for all to see, but this sign is also about being true to oneself.

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

2:22 am... 3:33 am... 5:55 pm... 12:12 am... Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's horses and all the king's men. Couldn't put Humpty together again. ... yep, that’s what’s happening... like those corrupt idiot politicians, bureaucrats, and obvious servants of evil [they look like troll demons], can put the economy back together again.

You know, an alternate currency set up would be very lovely sometimes.

Interesting info on the indie publishing info! I'd like to learn more about it. :)

Yeah, if communities could come together enough, it would be a true salvation in these current times. I think, anyway. And, those, who are actually doing it, are truly enthused, and getting good results overall.

And, why not, currency is really a representation of work, goods and services. It has no intrinsic value, unless you're using gold and silver as a means of exchange.

Indie could be the way to go, especially for certain kinds of reads.
