Free Bottled Water!

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Wait for it to rain

place containers out to catch the rain ( Rain barrel or plastic tubs)

pour into bottles ( old juice containers or old bottled water containers! Be creative!)

You will get the purest water you ever tasted!!!!!

and free!!

In old western movies you would see cowboys lift the lid off the rain barrel and scoop up a drink of water– same idea !

You can boil water if you think necessary 

Peace and have a great weekend !!

=============================

You save planet by recycling water- reduce plastic waste – and flush body of toxins!!

Are Sonic Booms Decimating The Ocean’s Wildlife Populations?

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Are miliary sonic booms killing sea life in the ocean ? Recent beaching of deep water sea life calls into question these pracctices.

===================================

They use sound to navigate and to find other creatures in the deep ocean waters … vessels and the U.S. Military. According to Paul Ferris, campaign director for Sum Of Us, these companies have been “ceaselessly firing sonic booms to map the seafloor.

Examiner · 3/2/2015
===================================
This is what a sonic boom does on land-
====================================
OCEAN CITY — A loud boom on Monday, followed by windows rattling and homes and businesses shaking, was due to a sonic boom related to military jets in a testing track off the coast. Many residents and visitors reported the incident shortly after noon …

The Dispatch · 4/17/2014
===============================
One can only imagine what it is like for sound dependent underwater animals to be bombarded with these explosions.  It is time to stop using this technique.
Our oceans and the creatures that live there are more vital to our existence than mapping the sea floor.
I am sure if we can put a man on the moon we can figure out a non-intrusive way to map the ocean floor.

So I Sat…..

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

So I sat in my garden with today’s NY times as I had done just before the Iraq war started but this time the headlines read  —

SENATE PANEL FAULTS CIA OVER BRUTALITY AND DECEIT IN TERRORISM INTERROGATIONS –
REPORT REJECTS CLAIM ON HUNT FOR BIN LADEN –
FAILURE OF OVERSIGHT IS OUTLINED, AGENCY DEFENDS PROGRAM –
PORTRAYING A BROKEN -AGENCY DEVOTED TO A FAILED POLICY –
AT BIRTHPLACE OF FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT, A PROTEST TORCH IS PASSED

Finally finally…..  I smiled as I looked into the sky I heard –

My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing, land where my father died….. from every mountainside let freedom ring.

We are watching the system of US democracy in action – checks and balances….

Thank you, Senator Diane Feinstein.

Dozens of Palestinians, including children, suffered from suffocation on Thursday due to inhaling what is being described as a “strange toxic gas” launched by the Israeli army during its ground incursion in the north and south of the Gaza Strip, Anadolu news agency reported.

Anadolu quoted Dr. Ashraf Al-Qidra, a spokesperson for the Health Ministry in Gaza, as saying that: “Dozens of Palestinians, including children, arrived at hospitals suffering from suffocation after inhaling a white poisonous gas fired by the Israeli army in the northern Gaza Strip and in the Shawkah neighbourhood near Rafah, to the south.”

Al-Qidra urged the Palestinians in Gaza “not to panic when they inhale the strange gas, to protect themselves using tarpaulin coats or nylon clothes and to cover the doors, windows and vents with a moist cloth to prevent air from leaking inside.”

Soap Box Democracy

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

The Golden Age Of Fun Of The Middle Class Of Democracy
1945 – 1979  Is Just Around The Corner –

I was walking around some beautiful ruins… last night in Washington Crossings Bowman’s tower when I thought-

There was a time when what we the people said mattered because we the people were the largest group of citizens with  shared values about justice shared views of the world as a place where liberty and the pursuit of happiness shaped the world  we walked.

” One for all and all for one ” was the motto of our lives  where the wealthy mingled with the not as wealthy and shared in the same  experiences ate the same Campbell’s tomato soup on a cold winter day watched the same TV shows such as The Jack Benny show or the Avengers revelled in the same  magnificent events as man stepped his foot on the moon…..some say it can’t happen again that it was a fluke.

I say no, I say it will happen again because it is and was the fruits of true democracy, a form of governing based on a wrinkled piece of parchment paper that says ” We the people hold these truths to be self-evident….

It is a guide a road map for the way back to a new golden era of peace prosperity and most importantly the pursuit of happiness for all.  Dream, dream with me and the dream will come true my fellow americans– across the globe.

When you live in the beautiful ruins of a revolutionary past it reminds you of what was fought for of how fleeting it can be and how every citizen is responsible for the state their country is  in – if you don’t like it change it!  Afterall George Washington Ben Franklin Harriet Tubman were all  just people with an idea, an idea about how they could make their country better.  So think, sit in a garden, sip a cocktail – wait for your idea your piece of destiny to appear before your eyes — then take action !  No matter how small, everything starts in the mind of one human being ruminating about life.

Cheers and start ruminating  don’t forget the cocktail, an american traditions!!!

Bowman’s Tower ( you look it up!)

Wsahington’s Crossing is just a spot by the delaware river’s edge where you can still stand and look out over to Trenton just as  George did  planing his trip to surprise the red coats…..

Nice Outfits!
