Big crowd all of a sudden…

Wow, looks like moving has it’s advantages!

Thanks all for the tips for purslane – I’d heard about it’s nutritional value, but wasn’t ready for eating it yet.

I’ll give it a try.  Also, one of the links you left to Wikipedia showed that purslane is good for conserving soil moisture, something I’d observed, but with no credentials, could not say for certain.

No fear, it’s got hold of my plot this year, we think it came in with a bad batch of compost, as other gardeners have it too. (My patch is in a community garden).

Next time, I’ll harvest and try a sauté!

Also, while I’m here, I read that post from the supposed old timer who is going, with other legions of us, to take back the country.

Well, we’d better get some people on the ballot who can really make a difference.  My battles to get Ron Paul to the ballot in 2008 and again in 2012 showed me how corrupt and entrenched the morlocks who control, at least the Republican party machinery are.  I have no reason to expect anything different from the Dems.  There is a line of hacks and operatives waiting to run for office.  Access to the ballot -names put up for the voters – is strictly controlled.  The salvation of the country will IMO, have to come from  the people themselves, independent from the FedGov.

Something else caught my eye in the posts, folks looking for a PM source.

I bought some one ounce silver dragon bars from Ampex on Ebay a while back.  The shipping charges were small, maybe $5, and they packaged well and delivered quick.

Unfortunately, I have no idea where the silver dragons went once they got to me.

They were on the table for a while, and then they got consumed by the ever-present mess, and now, I think I may have thrown them away with the recycling.

I do a periodic clean-up of all the accumulated stuff on the table – magazines, appeals for donations, things I think I am interested in for the moment., etc.

Regardless, Ampex was good to me, I wish I could treat myself as well.

Finally, THANKS MAYA – love those train pics, I remember them from the days on the other, other site – Dr. whomever, who deleted stuff he didn’t approve of.

Let’s hope this new spot will bring back that old original renegade bunch who struck out from the clutches of the evil Dr. V (?) to have opinions and thoughts aired in the bright desert light.
