When Does "That's Stupid" Not Mean Stupid?

CD rainbowSounds like a contradiction, but it isn't. I just started a course by Carol Tuttle about Energy Profiling and find it extremely interesting and highly recommend it.

Over lunch while talking to my husband, I realized that I had already learned something valuable in this course. Hubby told me that President Barack Obama is in trouble for using the word 'stupid' for the event in Massachusetts where a black Harvard professor was apprehended by the police because they thought he was breaking into a house. In fact, the professor had trouble with his front door and was literally breaking into his own house.

To me it looks like President Obama has 'carbon' as the dominant energy. He is a great orator and always says exactly what he means. So when he said it was 'stupid' he meant that situation could have been handled better, it was not up to par. For any person with another dominant energy the word 'stupid' would have meant exactly that 'stupid', but not for a 'carbon' dominant energy person.

This episode shows again, that even though we might have a common language, that does not mean that we give the same meaning to words. Depending of our own personal point of view and perception of the world around us the meaning that we intend for a word can be totally different than what another person hearing it, thinks it means.

in everyone you encounter"

Sleep Tip from the Mentalist TV Show

I like watching the Mentalist TV show and yesterday I got finally around to watch my latest recorded show. To my delight and surprise Patrick Jane's character gave this tip to help you fall asleep:

If you have falling asleep you can count sheep or on your in-breath say or think 1 and then when you breath out say or think 2. On your next in-breath say or think 1 and when you breath out say or think 2. Keep on repeating this and you will be surprised that when you wake up it is morning.

Give it a try and then connect with me on Facebook and let me know what happened . . .

How to Make Simple Square Foot Gardening Templates

I am just about ready to start planting my square foot garden. Until now I have used string and sticks to mark things, but then I got an idea of how I could easily make some templates from old plastic election signs. The material was easy to cut with a knife and a permanent marker would help with the design.

At first I thought that I would need a whole bunch of templates, but as I got going I realized that I could actually get away with only 2 templates.

First cut 2 12x12 inch pieces from the plastic signsDraw a grid: template 1: 3 rows and 3 columnstemplate 2: 4 rows and 4 columnsMark the center of each square of the grid by drawing diagonal linesUse the electric drill and a ½" drill bit and drill a hole at each center point.

Template 1

Grid of 3 row and 3 columns (9 plants - holes circled in blue)This can also be used for 1 plant per square foot (hole circled in black and then blue)

Template 2 This one is truly a multi-use templateGrid 4 rows and 4 columns (16 plants - holes circle…

Companion Planting Chart

Have you ever heard of companion planting? Wikipedia explains it very nicely:
Companion planting is the planting of different crops in proximity (in gardening and agriculture), on the theory that they assist each other in nutrient uptake, pest control, pollination, and other factors necessary to increasing crop productivity. Companion planting is a form of polyculture.

Companion planting is used by farmers and gardeners in both industrialized and developing countries for many reasons. Many of the modern principles of companion planting were present many centuries ago in cottage gardens in England and home gardens in Asia.
