Once again Deanna thank you for the wonderful report on the celebrations there. I hope to see it one day too. Glad to hear about the rain. I wonder (speaking of power problems) what will happen to the power grid there with so many of "us" and the use of Air conditioners what is bound to sky rocket in the future as all these new developments, and houses, that are planned|
are filled with people??? Also the water that will be needed???? Can't help pondering these things - maybe I am just way off in the future worrying about nothing-I hope so....
Here in BC it is HOT the stink bugs have arrived, which signifies that we are into the beginning of "Fall" mode and summer is winding down. Today it is very smokey again - there are a lot of fires in the south east of BC this year, and one large one right now in the Pend O'Reille (how do you spell that?) in Northern Idaho that is blowing a lot of smoke north. We still have people evacuated (30) from their homes 30 km north of here and there are a couple of new fires that started in the last couple of days. The Pine Beetle here has gone rampant with Global Warming since they need minus 30 for a week at a time to die over winter, and we are not seeing that kind of weather any more. over 80% (new figures) of the pine trees in BC have been killed in the past few years and now it is moving quickly into Alberta where they are very worried about the loss of all that "fibre".
The "secret" meeting with Bush, Harper, and Calderon is happening in MOntreal on Aug 20 to
talk about "Fortress America" It is called the SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership)
Oh yeah, then there is the Portland Nuke Plot known as "Noble Reserve" where they are modeling a nuclear atttack on Portland. Sometime in August. Aparently there are a lot of peole (some very sane) who are worried it is not just a model. Hmmm..... Aren't you glad you are there in lovely La Manzanilla? Enjoy the tranquility!!!
