August Blues

Summer is almost over, the garden is full of ripening beans, potatoes, lettuce, peas, tomatoes, courgettes, blueberries, chillis turning red; the harvest is happening all around, and we’re winding down before starting a new cycle of life next month. One event happening this weekend, 24th to 27th August, with art, talk, theatre, and film is the Kilmainham-Inchicore Community Festival. Check their facebook page for activities

AUG 27th
Waters & Community: Insects of the Canal & Angling
Hosted by Kilmainham-Inchicore Community Festival
Sunday at 12 PM – 2 PM
BERA HALL, top of Connolly Avenue, Inchicore, Dublin 8

Out of all the water on Earth, saline water in oceans, seas and saline groundwater make up about 97% of it. Only 2.5–2.75% is fresh water, including 1.75–2% frozen in glaciers, ice and snow, 0.5–0.75% as fresh groundwater and soil moisture, and less than 0.01% of it as surface water in lakes, swamps and rivers. People who use our waters like the anglers above are often at the front line of noticing what is happening to our water.

The DSCGP and the Green Party in general have, and continue to, discuss cannabis as a medicine with benefits, and/or a recreational drug leading to armageddon and the meltdown of civilization as we know it.

My Canadian cousin has put a short video on YouTube about his town’s cannabis dispensary.  It might be interesting to some as the owner talks about her stock,  her customers, and the future.
