About JJBollOX

This is an update. The slight humour aka sarcasm will be lost on anyone who hasn't read this before the update. I am, still a British male. Still living but not in Switzerland. I intend to remain, living and male. When I wrote before I had "spent the better part of two months negotiating the change in my self identity. Unemployed and sharing home with a now ex-girlfriend. I've moved. Moved on. Maybe a year has passed by. Have I moved in an upward direction? Is upward the only way to go if we are to expand, broaden and grow? Realistically, the most dramatic (not exactly decisive) direction I have taken in the time was down. Down, down and deeper than down. I fell off of a mountain. My life got complicated yet simple. This in itself is a fair summary of my personality. I have posted the first words of blogs to be written which I would like to turn into a book. 'A normal life.' Let's see how well and how fruitfully I can express my frustrations, pain, healing process and the constant changes that are life.

Boasting five types of kale, 23 kinds of heirloom tomatoes, strawberry plants, microgreens, and five varieties each of squash, eggplant, hot and sweet peppers, basil and more, the greenhouse garden at Henry Ford Hospital features an extensive hydroponics system and an exquisite lobby for entertaining, teaching kids and hosting events. Putting health back into hospitals. Love this idea!

“As I contemplate the impacts that Fracking is having across the globe, the success and the losses – I realize the only way to stop this destructive act of extracting resources from our precious Earth is by building and uniting a stronger movement around the globe. The people who know what is happening must unite, and must educate and inspire others to join our movement by showing them what truly is at stake. Only when we get the masses out on the front lines will we have a chance to conquer this beast that threatens the very fabric of our future and those to follow. When I was in Pennsylvania and saw some of what has happened to their state, the rivers that have been poisoned the land that has been destroyed and the fight that continues on, I felt deeply saddened by the ignorance of the human race. Their fight has been strong in Pennsylvania, with some success, but with more destruction as the industry continues to drill on. We are drilling our way to a place of no return as our planet continues to warm and climate extremes become more and more common. Fracking is not a safe bridge away from fossil fuels! Robert F. Kennedy just came out and said again that natural gas is a catastrophe! When will the corporations promoting this harmful extraction wake up and realize that the future of our children is more important then their profits?” ~Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a 13 year old indigenous environmental activist from Boulder, Colorado.

This has to be re-posted in the hope that it reaches more of us. For only our knowledge and sharing of it and standing together ‘not’ to stand for things that we can then prevent will change our future, before it … Continue reading

“Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt, they can’t afford the time to think. Tuition fee increases are a “disciplinary technique,” and by the time students graduate, they are not only loaded with debt, but have also internalized the disciplinarian culture. This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy.” ~Noam Chomsky
