and then peel off 10% of the hydro profits to fund a badly needed health clinic (my nearest neighbor started her own health care district 30 years ago in another county and is willing to help-bye bye health care middle men).
Interesting idea. How would that health care district work? Would it complement a system already in place? Would it provide alternative care? I have an acupuncturist friend who may be interested in relocating.
In regard to venturing on your hydro project, yes I have excellent credit. What is the cost of the project? What is the cost of your property? Will the price change once the project passes FERC?
this institute would start out working on farm animals, where it seems that an additional 20% productivity minimum is attained by clearing all pathogens from the animals. this produces more meat with less input (forage) and likely a longer life of the animal. it would be interesting to document this using controlled experiments as part of the ongoing activities of the institute. a natural progression would be to humans and thus a health clinic using pathogen elimination, then nutrition to provide the human body with the ability to regenerate organs and biochemicals reactions long since lost to parasite predation. i have completely rebuilt my liver and lymph system that were destroyed by filarial worms and liver flukes, overcoming 2 presently incurable diseases. this is huge. there is no reason we should not live to be 120-30 with an intact quality of life.
how fortunate you were to have spent some childhood years in such a pristine setting as wallowa county, largely removed from societal ills. i came here 6 years ago very sick, busting at the gills with heavy metals and over 20 species of pathogens, some very dangerous (as revealed by live-blood microscopy). i was looking for an environment with clean food, water and land. the exceptional people were only a bonus beyond belief. your town of lostine holds a special place for me. i can see why the river valley was proposed for national park status way back when. for 2 seasons, i grew vegetables in the greenhouses at little hill farm until the 60-mile commute became excessive. i did not take the harvest to market (all that annoying washing and prepping), but bartered it for beef, elk, lamb, milk and eggs. loading up my truck on a friday evening and making "deliveries" was exhilarating, especially after september's frosts took outdoor gardens and made my loot all the more valuable. i currently grow cool weather crops here in the forest, but am rewarded more than i expected from foraging. i maintain a native plant nursery.
it would be great to meet up with you when you visit here. i welcome other's perspectives and experiences. things are developing rapidly here for this property, largely due to the hydro potential, which i have mixed feelings about. i really need to focus on just a few ideas as a starting point and prioritize the dozen or so that i feel will work. certainly having too many options is better than too few. my background is in plant ecology, immersing myself in academia and habitat restoration, having a ball completing over 50 projects as a contractor.
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
