Quote of the month---

Much like politics,

the internet is a jungle.

If you lock yourself in the cellar,

and keep your mouth shut,

predators may smell your scent

and paw the cellar door.

But hearing only silence,

and having no teeth strong enough

for iron hatch and steel lock,

they'll soon move on to better hunting.

Better to be fully alive,

to go outside and roam among the trees,

to howl in that inimitable voice

that Gaia gave you, and tread

along the streams and rivers----

ever mindful that leopards and crocodiles

are doubly mindful of you.

If it's raining or looks like rain:

Cover your equipment. The slightest amount of water is destructive to your machine. Those that argue with us will be turned away.
