Green Acres Village: DRAGONFLY INFUSION!

Two days ago, we had just finished brunch and pod meeting where, in a light-hearted manner, we brainstormed on the amazing new ventures we’re planning. One hour later, this! Gabby grabbed them in slow motion. YES! What does the dragonfly symbolize?

Gold Surges After Trump Nominates Gold Standard Advocate Judy Shelton To Fed Board | Zero Hedge

Money is meant to serve as a reliable unit of account and store of value across borders and through time. It’s entirely reasonable to ask whether this might be better assured by linking the supply of money and credit to gold or some other reference point as opposed to relying on the judgment of a dozen or so monetary officials meeting eight times a year to set interest rates. A linked system could allow currency convertibility by individuals (as under a gold standard) or foreign central banks (as under Bretton Woods). Either way, it could redress inflationary pressures.

Judy Shelton is author of the 1998 book Money Meltdown; and previously she had concluded that “Central bankers, and their defenders, have proven less than omniscient.”

No Longer Fiction: Orwell’s 1984 is the Reality of Our Times – 21st Century Wire

70 years ago, the British writer George Orwell captured the essence of technology in its ability to shape our destinies in his seminal work, 1984. The tragedy of our times is that we have failed to heed his warning.

No matter how many times I read 1984, the feeling of total helplessness and despair that weaves itself throughout Orwell’s masterpiece never fails to take me by surprise.

Although usually referred to as a ‘dystopian futuristic novel’, it is actually a horror story on a scale far greater than anything that has emerged from the minds of prolific writers like Stephen King or Dean Koontz. The reason is simple. The nightmare world that the protagonist Winston Smith inhabits, a place called Oceania, is all too easily imaginable. Man, as opposed to some imaginary clown or demon, is the evil monster.

So you wanna establish a bucolic urban farm in the midwest?

Well, you might think again. It’s not all roses. In fact, these past few days remind me very much of what we’re all going through who have planets in the 18-23° area of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, now activated, big time, by transit Mars in Cancer opposing transit Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn. Wheeee!
