What am I looking at? Looks tree-ish to me! All I see is a brown thing in the middle of the photo. My eyes are bad, but not that bad! I see the handsome gentleman below this post and those lobtsers! Yumm-mee!
Can you enlarge it a bit? You've forgotten how old these eyes are! (grin)! Shocked Cool That's me with the shades. Looking like Ray Charles! Cool, but eyeless! I used to have such eagle-eyed vision! :wink:

"The Attentive Heart: Conversations with Trees", by Stephanie Kaza. She is an environmentalist, a naturalist, a Buddhist, a feminist. On the book jacket, it says that she teaches Environmental Studies at the University of Vermont. Don't know where she is now.

Summertime Blues

(Eddie Cochran)

Well I'm gonna raise a fuss
And I'm gonna raise a holler
About workin' all summer
Just tryin' to earn a dollar
Well, I went to my boss
Who governs me
He said, "No, dice, bud
You gotta work late"

Sometime I wonder
What I'm gonnna do
There ain't no cure
For the summertime blues

Well, my mom and papa told me
Now you better earn some money
If one of you is gonna go
Ridin' next Sunday
Well, I didn't go to work
I told my boss I was sick
He said, "You can't use the car
'Cause you didn't work a lick"

Sometime I wonder
What I'm gonnna do
There ain't no cure
For the summertime blues

Gonna save two weeks
Gonna have a fine vacation
Gonna take my problem
To the United Nations
Well, I went to my congressman
He sent me back a note
It said, "I''d like to help you, hon
But you're too young to vote"

Sometime I wonder
What I'm gonnna do
There ain't no cure
For the summertime blues

Now there ain't no cure
For the summertime blues
Now there ain't no cure
For the summertime blues

Good one ehBeth,

What's the name of the man who made the tune - "Hot, Hot, Hot" popular??

That's the tune we in the South are whistling. And, it ain't Dixie - Which, by the way, was originally a Yankee tune - from NEW YORK CITY!!!!!!!!!

True story.

sumac, checked out Vermont Unitversity staff, and Stephanie Kaza's an associate professor - Focus: Environmental Ethics, Religion and Ecology, Ecofeminism.

Courses:
International Environmental Studies
Environmental Communication
Feminist Ethics and the Environment
Nature Writing
Radical Environmentalism
Environmental Justice (advisor)
Ecofeminism
Religion and Ecology
Emerging Environmental Thought

She's an "unlearning commercialism" kinda girl with a Buddhist perspective. Not sure how that all ties in with "Radical Enviornmentalism" in the advocacy sense of the meaning, but her views are philosophically interesting.

ul, ((((((((((waving))))))))))

Hope you have a terrific vacation!

Yo, Maggie! Hows the weather in Florida?

Talk about a heat wave!!! The Sierra's hasn't seen one day in the past three weeks when temps haven't been 100 degrees or more.

meltingly,

I prefer daybreak. Still too hot and buggy in the evenings. Kitties love it though. Hard to get them to come back in when I want to go to bed.
