This is Not a Crypto BLOG


I am a fan of crypto currencies, though not a speculative investor. I'm a holder. I have collected a few here and there. I have a hard wallet and know just enough to get me into a lot of trouble, make bad decisions, and lead my friends and family to slaughter. I have made and am making many mistakes. If I ever give it, don't take my advice. At best, I can hope to buy high and sell higher. I use Brave browser and collect my $5 worth of BAT a month, but that's about it these days.

So, I will stick to the things I know. Things I know because I am experiencing them first hand. Things I can smell, see, hold. Things that are tangible, and possibly unique to me. Things that for you to experience you'd have to walk a day in my shoes. My shoes. Which are usually 2 miss-matched rubber slippers, some times a hiking shoe or a rubber boot and often just bare and dirty feet.2 wrong slippahs

I have a front door, back door and side door. There should be a pair of rubber slippers outside each one, but often times I put on a pair, walk around the yard doing daily tasks and end up at a different door to go back inside and wind up having two pairs at the back door and none by the side door. So, when I go out the side door again, I have no shoes at all. I don't mind. the grass feels good on the bottom of my feet and mud squishes between my toes. I tread lightly on the jagged rocks and step carefully over fallen branches. The more you walk with bare feet, the better you get at it. You develop tough skin learn to stay aware.

Here I am. Walking the Earth in bare and dirty feet. I get a little tougher each day and hopefully learn a bit with each new or repeated experience. Toes up, step lightly, pay attention. These days, it is possible to put your feet up on a ottoman, sit on a couch surrounded by plush carpet. Use your fingers to see and learn things world wide. You can order from UberEats and Amazon, get an on-line degree, and hang out with your friends that are oceans away. I prefer to get my feet dirty and hang out with my chickens and fish. I'll get my feet dirty so you don't have to.

I'm working on some projects right now. I'll try to tell you about them as they happen. Here's a quick list of some things in progress.

Putting a new roof on the greenhouse. The old one is fiberglass, 40 years old, and no longer lets good light in. Much of it is torn and missing. What is there, is covered in detritus and lichen. This time around, I'm going with plastic sheeting. We'll see how that goes.

Setting up the aquaponics system. A friend of the family is in the military and has orders to uproot their family and head to another part of the country. They can't take their failed aquaponics system with them so I am taking it and am going to see if I can have more success then they did. If I get one cucumber, I think I'm probably doing better than they ever did.Aquaponics first stage

Harvest and sell the Turmeric. In Hawaii, we call turmeric, olena. I have a bunch of it in "the Gully". I'll probably get about 50 pounds of kitchen ready Turmeric this season. But I have to carefully dig it, wash it, weigh it, and package it. Oh yeah, then I have to find someone that wants to buy it.Olena

I'll keep you posted.

Hawaii, Local Knowledge, Homesteading, Aquaponics, Ornamental Tropical Plants, Hiking, Camping, Adventures, Movies, Music, and Vinyl Records. I live on one acre of jungle and yard on the Windward Side of Oahu, Hawaii, USA, Earth. These are my interests and areas of learning. KRS-ONE from Boogie Down Productions taught me that we all have 2 jobs. One is to learn, the other is to teach. I am still learning and possibly someone out there may learn from my experience and mistakes along the way.
