Spring seems to have sprung! We are enjoying highs into the 40’s and lows into the lower 20’s. That is really ideal because the snow won’t melt off so fast and cause flooding on the roads and yards. The roads do become quite icy once it freezes at night, but we live with icy roads much of the time.
Some of the villages are having a difficult time with the cost of heating oil approximately $4.00 a gallon. A couple men lost their lives in a fire last week. The fire truck was of no value because they had no heat for the fire station and the water inside the tanker was frozen, so they used buckets of snow and water in an attempt to put out the fire.
Many villages also don’t have inside plumbing and still use honey-buckets for the human waste. Village life can be pretty cruel by our standards, but most people don’t want to have to live in the cities and towns. Teenagers often do leave the villages to find work and never return, however. That way of life, subsistence, is becoming extinct as people can no longer rely on l9iving off the land or making enough money from hunting, trapping and fishing.
We had a simple dinner tonight. I used two pint jars of home-canned red salmon to make 4 large salmon patties. With that we had rice and broccoli. It made a nice and filling meal.
I went to the dentist today and it was very successful, probably the most successful in about 50 years. Dentists and I don’t get along well and I usually go bonkers when I hear the sound of the drill. Well, I have been practicing with EFT and apparently it worked for all the various aspects of a dentists visit! What a relief…not only for me but also for the dentist. In a couple weeks he is going to remove a mercury filling from centuries ago and replace it with a non-mercury filling, do a bit more work and then cap the tooth. In the past, I’d just wait until the tooth was so bad it had to be pulled, just so I wouldn’t have to listen to the drill! WOW! What a change!
It is time to go and feed the birds. They do know how to tell time and are letting me know they are hungry. Till next time…
