This time, some cool old postcard imagery from the Winsors’ cross-country train trip, featuring shots of the train crossing Johnson’s Canyon (there’s a joke in there somewhere…) and Canyon Diablo. The journal reads:

Thursday Feb. 24th

Beautiful clear morning, We got to Albuquerque, N.M. about 7:45 a.m. I had my breakfast just before we got there. There were Indians all about, but we didn’t stop long enough to buy anything. We passed the Continental Divide about noontime (7,100 feet above sea) and came to Gallup, N.M. at 12:20p.m. Quite warm.

Winslow Ariz. at 3:20 p.m. Soon after that, we crossed the deep Canyon Diablo. 

About 5 o'clock, we came to Flagstaff (6,900 feet) and ran into snow & colder air.

Bud & Mary Allen read aloud in the Observation Car – a story called “The Plunger [???],” which seemed to interest everyone in the car a great deal!

We played “Hearts” in Mother’s stateroom till about 6 o'clock, when we got to Williams, the point at which a branch line runs up to the Grand Canyon.

At 8 o'clock, after running down Johnson’s Canyon (a wonderful place), accompanied by a marvelous sunset, we got to Seligman, where we set our watches an hour back to Pacific time.

I want to be intimidating. I want a face that says “don’t come near me” and hands that look like they could hurt a man. Too many times I’ve smiled reflexively and relapsed into girlishness. 

I practice throwing punches in the mirror until I breathe heavy. I do some handstands until I drop myself on my head and then I climb the firepole to the roof in the dark. 

There is a cactus in Diablo Canyon that blooms once a year, only in winter. It is sharp and violently green as long as it is alive, and it stays alive in the desert by having those spines, by staying thirsty and fierce.

There is a fallen tree in Arch Cape, a nurse log, feeding seedlings from its own flesh, gathering moss and mycorrhizae on its softening skin. It dies slowly so it can fill itself with life.

BUY DG Fairhaven LLC “Stock market tip of the Day”...


DG Fairhaven Power LLC is the industry leaders in renewable energy power plants. This company has the technology to change sawmill waste into technology. They can also use entire trees… if they are SMALL diameter tree.
Therefore they can use Douglas Fir to generate power…

DG Fairhaven Power LLC Electricity from Sawmill Waste generator systems.

What If  we built a power plant next to the towns of Vancouver BC, Seattle, Portland, The Dalles, Grants Pass, Medford, Ashland, Crescent City, Eureka, Redding, Chico, Red Bluff, Sacramento, Los Angeles, TJ, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, and every other city in the USA… Would not that generate a vast quantity of electricity? As much or more than Diablo Canyon Nuclear power plant??? Given the fact that the douglas fir stand Extends from California all the way to the central region of Canada. The total stand is actually Infinite… If all the people of the world worked Chainsawing, 24/7/365… The tree would still expand their total weight… So, by definition this is perpetual motion…
Why bother with oil, gas, solar, wind, or anything else…

Energy Freedom forever? YES!
