All’s Well That Ends Well

An early frost again this year means no pumpkins for us.

So close, and yet so far

Most folks think it’s climate change, others claim it’s the Grand Solar Minimum. I suggest it’s something else completely—chemical ice nucleation for weather modification. I don’t think mother nature swings quite like that without the hands of man involved. I suppose only time will tell.

I will today, however, stay focused on the nice and easy, if only to prove I can manage to do such a thing whenever I choose.

So, here’s a fun family walk.

And a huge harvest of sweet potatoes, along with some ginger and tumeric, too.

And a sweet little harvest of honey and wax.

Resourceful bees happily cleaning up my mess
Prepared for the next crops, garlic and onions, coming soon.
The final scent of summer—the last bloom of Macy’s Pride

And to end, a tender and thoughtful bow to a dear man we’ve lost today, sparing him, and our extended family, of potentially many painful years coping with a debilitating disease. A merciful passing for which we are grateful.

Papi, now completely blind and mostly deaf, is also not far from
his final journey to the great beyond.

May he rest in peace.

  1. My eclectic interests have had me studying and researching human history and global climate for most of my life. I have never understood how we have ever come to think that our climate doesn’t change, or changes very slowly, or that extreme weather events are a rare thing, or even that climate change is a bad thing. I remember reading a book written by a climate expert and anthropogenic climate change believer, about extreme weather over the past few thousand years. He was trying to show that humans are responsible for climate change, yet his own book proved the opposite; climate doesn’t just change, but can lurch chaotically from one extreme to the other. Sometimes, that can mean 300 year droughts in one area, and massive flooding in another. Mother Nature is a b***.

    Humans have tried to affect climate and control the weather since forever. In the past, it might be shamans doing rain dances or making sacrifices. Today, it’s “scientists” and their experiments. The only thing that has really succeeded is cloud seeding, and even then, things don’t always turn out as planned. I recall one particular disaster when China didn’t want a weather system to hit a city with rain during an international event they were hosting. Their cloud seeding was supposed to get the rain to fall before it reached the city. It ended up causing a massive blizzard and costing lives. But this was China, and lives are cheap to the CCP. I don’t think it even made the news at the time.

    What it comes down to is, weather and climate are insanely complex and we have very little understanding of it. We can’t control the weather, because we don’t know enough about how it works to even hope to succeed. That doesn’t stop people with lots of funding from trying, but it doesn’t work. We humans are just too insignificant to affect something as massive as global climate. The most we can manage is minor changes at micro levels. It still isn’t any sort of control. Just an influence.

    1. Thanks for the comment and insights! I actually think we are much more advanced in weather tech than is let on to the public. Have you researched Jim Lee’s work much? He’s got the and, very good, well-documented research there. Another one to check out is, I’ve got a link on our main page with a few more resources you’ll definitely want to check out if this is your thing!

      1. It’s been a few years since I was looking into weather modification, specifically, though I still follow a number of climate sites, still. I have no doubt attempts continue. I just don’t think we will ever be successful in controlling with weather, no matter how much money or tech is thrown at it.

        Which doesn’t mean damaged can’t be caused in the attempts. 😥
