Congressional Hearing on Green Jobs

Watching some video on Congressional hearing - if you are sweeping the floor in a solar panel facility, it is a "green job." If someone drives a hybrid school bus, that is considered a "green" job. If someone puts gas into a hybrid school bus, that is a "green job." If a college professor teaches environmental studies, that is a "green job,." If someone drives any school bus driver, that is a "gre...en job." Employees at a bicycle shop, yes - a "green job.". Since I am more a left brain thinker, these would not be my classifications. But there are a lot of right brain thinkers in Washington, D.C., which is why we are in such a financial mess, and these classifications make sense to them as does the thinking of some that it is ok to leak intelligence information that hurts our foreign relations and makes it more difficult for U.S. employees in foreign countries to do their jobs. I think the latter is treason and to me, "green jobs" would be MANUFACTURING, INSTALLING, AND MAINTAINING solar panels, wind turbines, etc. not sweeping floors and driving hybrid busses. If somebody can help me understand the classifications, please give it a try. Maybe I got sucked into a parallel universe - LOL. I just know a lot of things coming out of Washington, D.C. simply don't make sense to me!

Pluto in the 6th House

Since I've recently endured this, I can say it is very difficult as it finally moves to the Descendent.  It was like being dead for months, in a coffin, no energy, no desire, just existing.  Pluto has now moved over my Descendent and the day it hit, I felt the jolt of life returning and that day, made sure there was total truth between a friend and me. Isn't that what Pluto does?  Brings out what was hidden.  And, it was so easy to do.

I'm working on the Aquarian Age novel, so doing very little blogging.  Perhaps soon, I'll be doing more.

Another Year

Just stating I haven't been on here since last August (2011).  I got involved in completing a great amount of research and the days passed by so quickly.  I wasn't on Facebook; really wasn't available to the world.  Am back now, so perhaps will be more opinionated soon.

The next project is lobbying for a natatorium (indoor olympic size swimming pool) in Waxahachie.  Ellis County needs one and Waxahachie is the largest city and also county seat, so that seems to be a great place for a swimming center.

The new library in Ferris opened and I took my youngest grandchild to the ribbon cutting.  She spent a lot of time at the old cramped-space library and this was a wonderful new place to be.  I'm so proud of everyone in Ferris, Texas, for pushing to get it built.

It seems that writing will be my major focus from now on and the research was related to that.

Today's my birthday and it is so nice to receive the happy birthday wishes.
