For the last two weeks this is what my brain has felt like: fuh fuh fuh

It's a good thing that I made a bunch of videos and podcasts a while back to get us by.  And it's great that Suzy Bean has taken on so much stuff while her brains are working.  I've uploaded so many videos that I can do that without too much brain power.

Fuh fuh fuh.

I'm further behind in emails than ever before.  And there are heaps of things here I need to deal with. 

Fuh fuh fuh.

Just wanted to make people aware so that they aren't surprised by the lack of progress.

Fuh fuh fuh.

ginko biloba makes ya more clear headed
and smelling rosemary herb will refresh your memory

if your fond of beer
then make sure you get some Brewer's yeast
in your diet  (the yeast that's left over from brewing the beer)

its very nutritional having all the b vitamins except for b12
and it increases the receptivity of neural transmissions
from one brain cell to the next

Sometime yesterday my brain popped. Trying to squeeze way too much in one day. And the email river was flowing more than usual.

This morning I've tried to be productive, but .....

fuh fuh fuh fuh fuh

I have a video almost done .... it's been almost done for a couple of days now. (Ernie and Erica! Send me those files!)

Suzy Bean is gonna have a podcast ready soon. I'll push that out when it is ready. And then I have two netflix DVDs that have been sitting on my desk for about a month - maybe I'll get them .... uh .... "processed" and sent back.

fuh fuh fuh fuh

That sounds like excellent advice Paul - as much as you're always banging on about how you need to reach more people, etc., you're not going to reach anyone if you burn out.

Seems to me like you would have no shortage of folks who would welcome you taking a break at their place and getting your hands in the soil.

I watched one movie.

Yesterday I feel like I worked hard all day long, but I would be hard pressed to come up with stuff to justify all the hours.

It's already 2 today and I know I've worked all day, and I have very little to show for it. I have about a hundred firefox windows open, each with a "todo". I've closed about 20 so far.

Suzy Bean says another podcast will go out today. That feels like progress!

On Friday, I explained permaculture (sans hearts and rainbows) at length to a Rush Limbaugh-esque conservative coworker. He seemed to be getting it, so I took a step further to explain how Monsanto were screwing over hard working farmers who were choosing to grow organic food. I was expecting a fuh fuh fuh response, but instead he got all fired up about how they were "rent seeking" (investing in lobbying government rather than investing in making a competitive product) which really pissed off his free market point of view. I finished up telling him that he should do a Jack Spirko "bag garden" if he feels like he doesn't have time and space for something more elaborate.

I've got a friend (also kinda conservative thinking) coming over today to help me build a RMH core in the backyard. I lured him with the promise of burnin' stuff (I assume he's bringing the complete works of Karl Marx )

Now I caught this bug from your podcast, so if you're having an off day, rest assured your empire keeps working.
