This slideshow is dedicated to the Irish people who have to vote AGAIN on the EU Constitution next Friday Oct 2. May God BLESS and keep the IRISH strong and obstinate!!!!! How many people in the US realize the importance of what the Irish holdouts are contributing to our freedom?

Trying to get inspired to write the Gertee tutorial and decided to make a fun slideshow of our summer to get myself in the right frame of mind.
Here's the revised version of Summer of Gertee 2009 without the music:

Here I am starting to "camp" for my fourth year in Kenny Lake, and it's been a trip to think about what changes have happened to my life since that first winter here in my trusty Girl Scout wall tent. I spent months freezing my off ass in that tent, wishing at least once every day that I had a yurt. I dreamed of owning a portable tent I could insulate well enough to hold some heat. Now, three years later I have not one but three gertees, and a lot more other things I need.
I took two bages of R-19 insulation from Tim's pile that's been under his porch for a year and installed it in the walls of my new16 footer. It's attached to my original 16' gertee which is now just an entryway, kitchen, pantry and dining room. The woodstove is heating both so far, but it's still above zero. I'll have to install some kind of fan to the stack; Ron suggested I modify a bathroom exhaust fan. I'm still using all the wool pieces and the RadiantGuard aluminum reflective foil for ALL my ceilings, plus stuffed up a few random pieces of styrofoam insulation I got out of a clients "to the dump" pile. Our friend Rick said he has 4 bags of the same insulation Tim has and I can have them whenever I drive over and pick them up! This means I can cut 15 more 6' posts and insulate the 20 footer! I'll use it right where it is and hope it holds up to the wind. Still waiting to get a big enough piece of solid waterproof something to put on the roof before I install the insulation. Learning about actual constuction materials now and how stupid I've been to not use visqueen sheets that come as wide as I need them! Plus there's amazing red tape that goes with it. This also means that EVERY city in the USA has enough leftover materials from building sites to build thousands of gertees for the homeless people. I didn't know there's almost 100,000 homeless people in LA! 100,000!!????? Gertees would be SUPER easy to make for that climate... I think I need to finish the gertee book asap.
Moved my shower spot into the kitchen right next to the woodstove, have a 21 inch metal tub that catches most of the water. I use about a gallon in the 4 gal sun shower. For extra heat and a ready supply I've got a 20 gallon metal pot filled with water set next to the back of the stove and three large pots on the metal shelf on the left side. The top of the shelf has ceramic tiles and makes a nice cookspace. To the right of the stove I have a small metal stand that also has ceramic tile on top. Behind that is a metal baker's rack with the bottom half for wood storage and the counter has 2 metal washtubs for dishes. Tucked in behind the baker's rack there's a small metal typing table I got from Tonsina Lodge 4 years ago, it makes a perfect dish drying spot.
big storm the other night. Put up a layer of old felt from big gertee on the west side of the kitchen and covered it with the new burgandy canvas I've been using for the exterior walls. We like it so much I'll do the same thing in the eastern kitchen side with what's leftover from the bright yellow.

Many thanks to Bill for sending this link on reinventing government, haven't read it all but it looks to be very important to our work. I mention this program in ACL research and remember being very shocked to find it so openly available. I assumed our constitutions made the very idea of changing the US government and system illegal unless it was done via constitutional means. This paper gives a lot more detail than I took the time to find:

There are several new buildings... nicely manicured
lawns and a hiking trail to "observe" the Park from afar...
Where the hell is Kenny Lake?
When I asked why Kenny Lake wasn't on the map
to show people where they ARE, their answer was:
"This is about the mountains, not Kenny Lake."
Why is the "entrance" to the Park 20 miles north
of the entrance to the park (in Copper Center)
and not on the actual road that leads into the park?
If you come up the Richardson from Valdez you
have to drive 20 miles PAST Kenny Lake
(the entrance road is the Edgerton Highway)
to "learn" about the park and then drive 20 miles
back to actually enter the park?
Here's a clue how communitarianism is introduced.
Sorry parkies, but there's NO SUCH THING!

"As the Indian government moves forward with its plans to provide all its citizens with a Unique Identification (UID) number, the biometric authentication behind the system will mean creating the world’s largest biometric database covering the data of over a billion people, according to a BBC News article.
"Further, officials plan on having the database stored and secured online enabling for quick and easy authentication whenever necessary."http://aftermathnews.wordpress.com/
