Re: “Life: The Long Game

Talk about anthropomorphic projection. Reality is so suffocating. It is almost as if it were designed to cause us to surrender so as to be enabled by our desperation to actually hear God's voice. But never mind. By all means necessarily miraculous and fantastic, hold on to the dream... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cy0ABjAP0T…

Re: “Kickstarting Life

Barry writes: "How did life start here on Earth? Ever since Darwin, scientists have been struggling with that question. (Before him, there was nothing to explain God did it.)"

In other words, since the late 1800's there is nothing to explain, "nature did it". Start with that assumption and then look for the evidence later. That is called the philosophy of materialism, not science.

Re: “To Bamboo or Not to Bamboo

clumping bamboo is the same as any ordinary ornamental grass. of course its root zone will expand as it ages, but does not run and is not invasive

Re: “How Sweet It Ain't

Actually, fat is a large part of the problem; the fat found in seeds. The Government's dietary advice to replace saturated fats with polyunsaturated oils caused the food supply to be altered. https://www.credit-suisse.com/us/en/articles/articles/news-and-expertise/2015/09/en/fat-the-new-health-paradigm.html

Re: “How Sweet It Ain't

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Last year they helped over 17,542 type 2 diabetics end the need for prescription drugs, insulin injections and blood sugar monitoring.

This year they're on track to help over 30,000.

In just a few weeks, 96% of their patients are able to stop ALL diabetes medication and insulin injections.

No more neuropathy pain, pricking your finger, or the need for expensive medication.

Re: “Going Natural

This is a very helpful article. The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) has a backyard certification program with tons of resources and incentives on their website to help wildlife by landscaping sustainably--just as Donna suggests in her very cool article. We are hoping that as many backyards, porches, balconies, school yards, the HSU campus, and our places of worship register their spaces as NWF Certified Wildlife Habitat by providing the 4 habitat requirements food, water, cover, and places to raise young and commit to gardening sustainably, so that Arcata can qualify as the fifth NWF Community Wildlife Habitat in California. Three of the four habitat requirements can be provided just by planting native plants! If you're interested in certifying, please visit NWF's website and click the links that lead you to their section "gardening for wildlife." Or if you're on Facebook visit, "Arcata Community Wildlife Habitat." Thanks, Donna, for providing inspiration and expertise to help us help wildlife from our homes.

Re: “How to Run

What a lovely story, Peri! Thank you for sharing this with us. I remember constantly wishing that I had more things to talk to my dad about that would help me feel closer to him when he was at the end of his life, struggling through his cancer treatments.

Re: “How to Run

Such a loving tribute to your father. You were able to give him a connection and sense of purpose at the end of his life, and he gave you his passion. Thanks for sharing, and do, keep running!

Re: “How to Run

Too much running (when do you know enough is enough) leads to old people slowly walking on hobbled knees and other irreversible infirmaries which are the result of repeated skeletal pounding in their youth. Similarly football players (if they don't have concussive brain syndrome) in their later years find life miserable with knee, shoulder, and other skeletal injuries. Get the same benefits through participating in golf, walking, swimming and other sports that improve your later years - not destroy your enjoyment of them. Your ability to enjoy life as an adult / senior is connected to the choices you make along the path - what you participate in, what you dissipate with, what you eat, etc. It takes awareness early in life - something most folks don't develop until it is too late.

Re: “Kicking Gophers and Moles to the Curb

The gopher sonic stakes along with a few gopher gas bombs did away with what seemed to be a family of gophers with a pretty extensive system that originated on the golf course that my back yard borders. Within 2 days at maximum I have been gopher free for about 9 months now and just today I helped my neighbor put some in the ground surrounding his property. Results will be posted. Wish us luck

Re: “A Home in a Redwood

I think tree houses are great and what not but as Crystal's neighbour I'm not to happy with her.My husband caught her putting her trash in our cans that we pay to have emptied and they won't get picked up if they are over stuffed and tonight she was shooting off illegal fireworks and another neighbor called the police on me thinking that I was shooting off guns because they couldn't figure out where the noise was coming from.Thanks Crystal for being inconsiderate of your fellow neighbours.
