More news from the Inbox

I have a fantasy where Velvet and I go live in a biosphere on Greenpeace Island. He would be like Wesley on Star Trek The Next Generation.  If it were TV, I would be a random botanist.  In real life in real life they would have to need an early childhood educator but I could play with the kids and develop environmental curriculum for nursery and elementary schools. We could sell it to school systems around the world to raise funds for the community.

Some weeks ago Greenpeace sent me a survey where respondents were asked to prioritize areas of focus. The last few questions asked for reactions to the idea of Greenpeace buying an island in the Artic so that it could be a sovereign nation with representation at those major environmental conferences where the US traditionally shits on an accord.

I don't know what would happen on Greenpeace Island, but as long as I'm dreaming, I'll dream up a single man in my demographic.  A passionate scientist or something who makes brilliant conversation and has a twinkle in his eye. There needs to be a biosphere though, or at least a magnificent greenhouse. We might want to grow some kick-ass weed.

My brother rode on their whale boats a number of years back. He also got arrested on their behalf in numerous protests. He's also a member of the Rainbow Family, a hippie to the core. This world needs more hippies.

Great idea! I'll have to look it up on the internet and read the details.

V.V. Cool about your brother. We do need more hippies
Susan and Jane, I love this idea too. It's a little chilly up there, but that's why we have polypropylene.

Granny, A lert I'll be

Beach - let me know if you find anything. I figure if I know about the idea it can't be a secret but it may not be in full development either. Sounded like Greenpeace was polling the delegation. But I'm sure there will be some kind of marina bar. I expect the margaritas would be frozen in that Margaritaville, though ;)

ok... I'll sign up for the Biothingee.... but only if there is beer and really really good smokes.

Makropoulos said...

Yes, indeed, I'll come and join you on Greenpeace Island! And write and sing and help out in that greenhouse. When do we start?

If my misspent life as taught me anything, it's to be an all 'round handy guy. They could use a handy guy :-)

Looks like we need a Menopausal Stoners Beer and Greenhouse somewhere for sure. I'm betting my friends near Volente, Texas will be lobbying for the Texas Hill Country when I'm there next week.

As long as I can bring my son, who is a fan-freakin'-tastic gardener, and Jethro and Ellie May, my chihuahuas, I'm in! I used to be a chef, so the food on Greenpeace Island would be fabulous, even if it has to be ovo-lacto-vegetarian. If the food has to be vegan though, I'm out. I just can't do it and make it taste really good.
