.... We live in a 5 D world the heading states... http://21stcenturywire.com/2013/12/25/the-five-dimensions-of-sandy-hook/ ..... recommend the docu with Sophia Smallstorm on the Newtown Conn. USA story.. if only because I don't watch TV but look around and see the damage it has done to critical thinking humans who 'consume' its contents... it should have a warning sticker like cigarettes... TV is a tool for the control of human beings... it must be obvious by now. ----------------------------------------------------------- Also, checking over last years information flow I had a final note to include about SMARTgrowth and the ever-present-'planners' to include here: from the good people at the BC's 'agora' newspaper .. www.newagora.ca .. I found this little nugget... please read: .. Tuesday, May 24, 2011. 6:00pm until 10:00pm. Hellenic Community Centre, Arbutus Street and Valley Drive, Vancouver British Columbia, Canada, On Tuesday May 24th, Patrick M. Condon, Ned Jacobs and Lewis N. Villegas will present their ideas on how to plan Vancouver by engaging its vibrant communities. In 1995, the City of Vancouver embarked on City Plan to bring city-wide planning to the community level. Residents were surveyed and volunteer committees in each community worked with members of the Planning Department to develop the 20 year plans. The process was completed in all nine single-family neighbourhoods. The committees worked tirelessly on traffic and transportation, community safety and services, residential areas, new housing, neighbourhood centres, parks and public places, and community involvement in decision making. So why are neighbourhoods now in crisis? Because in 2007, along came EcoDensity which was brought forward by the previous NPA Council. Although the current Visions Vancouver Council promised to reconsider EcoDensity, they have proceeded to implement the initial actions and added more. What did this mean for our neighbourhoods? Any area can be spot rezoned or mass rezoned for high-rise condos. Ask the community associations in Norquay, Marpole, West End, Chinatown, Kerrisdale, Shaughnessy, Downtown Eastside, Kitsilano and Arbutus Ridge! Vancouver needs to have neighbourhood-based planning processes that are respected! Join us! Hellenic Community Centre, Arbutus Street and Valley Drive Tuesday, May 24, 2011 Registration 6:00, Panel Discussion 7:15. Please be seated by 7:00 latest. Patrick M. Condon, UBC Professor Landscape Architecture, Author: Seven Rules for Sustainable Communities, Ned Jacobs, Spokesman for Neighbourhoods for a Sustainable Vancouver, Lewis N. Villegas, Urban Design Specialist, Architecture, Planning and Building Design Technology Contact: Doreen Braverman, Arbutus Ridge Concerned Citizens Association, 604-263-6051 firstname.lastname@example.org -------------------------------- This is the stench of SMARTGROWTH 'planners' and agenda 21 in Vancouver 2011 .. information found @The Agora National ..... subscribe ... www.newagora.ca ..

Take clay, add sand, add straw or some other fiber additive, and then add water, and you get a pliable, sticky material that can be formed into bricks (adobe) or sculpted in place to form a monolithic wall (cob). The sculptable nature of the clay begs for creativity to reign supreme. Add niches, undulate the walls, create relief sculpture...there are no limits really. And if you feel your creativity has been stifled somewhere along the way and isn't coming freely, try working with a child for a few hours and they will give you back the gift of your free expression...it works every time! <3 love it!
