grass carp farming
I’ve always liked pasture, especially with real, native, mixed species hedgerows and the occasional mature native tree in the field. There’s lots of beef and sheep farming hereabouts (North Cornwall), which is fine, but: a. In an overpopulated world, 500 lbs of of meat per acre every other year seems a small crop; b.

The book is set mostly in … Continue reading Individual versus dogma – Harraga The post Individual versus dogma – Harraga appeared first on pjf.

corporate politics – presidential auctions
I was tempted to title this ‘Corporate Democracy’, but that would be such a glaring oxymoron. It is frustrating to witness the ‘relatively’ poor people of the world beating each other to death over whether to vote for Trump or Clinton in the 2nd $billion + US presidential auction. Both candidates are representing corporate interests, … Continue reading corporate politics – presidential auctions The post corporate politics – presidential auctions appeared first on pjf.

She was one of the very few lucky ones that met a education ‘professional’ that was awake.

The Eagle’s Throne – Carlos Fuentes
A fine book, set in the very near future. Due to a disagreement with the USA, Mexico finds itself without telecommunications, so people begin writing letters again! This is a problem for hard hearted politicians, because they believe it is unwise to ever commit anything to writing. They like everything that other people say to … Continue reading The Eagle’s Throne – Carlos Fuentes The post The Eagle’s Throne – Carlos Fuentes appeared first on pjf.
