WALT WHITMAN

Old Age's Ship & Crafty Death's
by Walt Whitman
(1819-1892)


From east and west across the horizon's edge,
Two mighty masterful vessels sailers steal upon us:
But we'll make race a-time upon the seas – a battle-contest yet! bear
lively there!
(Our joys of strife and derring-do to the last!)
Put on the old ship all her power to-day!
Crowd top-sail, top-gallant and royal studding-sails,
Out challenge and defiance – flags and flaunting pennants added,
As we take to the open – take to the deepest, freest waters.

HELP NICHOLAI

Hello friends, I'm writing to ask for some help to get one of my best childhood friends out of a Liberian prison. He has been charged with a bogus mix up of some art he was trying to bring home for presents. He's a giver who has dedicated a large part of  his life to helping Africa. Please take a moment and call our US deligates on his behalf.

RAW B VIATMIN SUPER BOOSTER

A little angel got us hooked on these beautiful supplements, they are potent and have given my gal and I a reall daily boost of energy and clarity. Here's a little about the product below.. Enjoy

The B group of vitamins is an eight-member family of water soluble vitamins which means they are not easily stored in the body and need to be replenished frequently. Their functions are so interrelated that it is suggested they be taken together so they can work harmoniously and perform at their peak levels. Cellular energy production is the most important function of the B complex vitamins and they are known as the catalytic spark plugs of our body. Providing mental and physical energy, supporting healthy blood, a healthy heart, immune system function and a healthy response to stress, the B complex vitamins are essential nutrients for the body.
Garden of Life’s RAW B-Complex is a comprehensive, whole-food, multi-nutrient formula made with RAW Food-Created Nutrients providing delivery of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, folic acid and Biotin, as well as choline, PABA and inositol. Cultivated with their unique Code Factors intact, the RAW Food-Created Nutrients in Vitamin Code formulas enable natural recognition of nutrients by your body, just as nature intended. Code Factors are the known and yet to be discovered synergistic compounds found in food and are necessary for proper nutrient delivery. Providing these Code Factors infuses the essential elements of whole-foods that the body thrives upon. Vitamin Code RAW B-Complex is RAW, gluten-free, dairy-free and contains no binders or fillers. Taking this RAW B-Complex formula to the next level, Vitamin Code RAW B-Complex also provides a RAW probiotic and enzyme blend along with a RAW organic fruit and vegetable blend for additional nutritional support.

SAN ONOFRE NUCLEAR SHUTS DOWN



Good news for surfers, and indeed anyone that lives anywhere remotely close to San Onofre State Beach, is that the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (S.O.N.G.S) will not be coming back online. Ever.
Southern California Edison announced that it will permanently shutter the troubled plant that looms over the popular surfing break of San Onofre. “The continuing uncertainty about when or if SONGS might return to service was not good for our customers, our investors, or the need to plan for our region’s long-term electricity needs,” said Ted Craver, Chairman and CEO of Edison International.
The plant has been inactive since January of 2012 when a radioactive gas leak prompted a shutdown of the plant. Surfers and activists have been calling for the plant’s closure citing safety concerns and the facility’s history of operational issues.

CHASING ICE A MUST SEE



***Saw this project with a group full of friends and left us all speechless... An amazing look at the water levels and global flux of natural disasters. An amazing visual wake up call to humanity. Now available on Netflix and I Tunes. Check it out.
