Happy New Year

Happy New year one and All.

I blogged this yesterday, and it will do again for today (and tomorrow, and ongoing).

There are many things that I am a stand for, and will be an even louder stand for in 2011:
Shared prosperity;
Peace and security for all;
Abundance for all;
Making choices outside of the current economic model;
Raising awareness of the relatedness of all people, and our relationship and dependence upon the environment;
Raising awareness of how economic pressures and advertising techniques are causing us to follow our lowest biological urges, and are destroying our health (we eat far too much meat and dairy, and too little fresh green veges – it is actually proven to be a significant risk factor in both cancer and heart disease if animal protein exceeds 10% of total calories);
Becoming far more effective politically at spreading these ideas.

More people taking low tech time out, consuming less, enjoying more.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money

    Hi Ted,
    The finger of Aunt Marj must have guided me this morning. We must have met.
    I have a lovely photo of Ailsa playing the piano at Marj Bool’s 90th. If you haven’t got a copy I can send you one.
    Now I remember you at South Bay and that you are her favourite computer man.
    Ailsa played Cavalleria Rusticana so beautifully at the party so I am sure it was the same yesterday at the funeral. Sadly I couldn’t be there.
    A very new year ahead…
    regards
    Gail

    • Hi Gail

      The funeral went well, mostly. Tom Burgin fell over just before the service started, and had a few of us concerned for a bit, and he ended up doing the service quite well, much as Marj would have wanted.

      Ailsa and I saw the New Year in with Janis and Tony, left them about 2am to come home.

      Ailsa is down at the schoolyard market selling button necklaces she has made.
      I’ve just had a couple of hours on the chainsaw, trimming trees to the south of the house.
