Carbon warming causes El Nino


This is fun.  I read this article and it was good.  I was so hopeful that they weren't going to mention the carbon warming hypothesis.  But I got to the very last words.  Damn!  But that's a spoiler.  :)

China controls nickel and rare earths


This is fun.  The leftie loonies got rid of all nuclear power in Europe, leaving Pootine to do anything he wants, since he controls all the natural gas for Europe.

They also got rid of all our freon, which is another story.

And now they are getting rid of all oil products, which just leaves Tesla.  And those guys need nickel, rare metals and rare earths.  tessyman was all in a pickle about nickel, but now there are no worries because China controls all of it.

So, when you listen to these guys, remember the type of future they want -- no physics, and a world controlled by Russia and China.  Yeah!  At least they think they won't boil to death.

If the physics people get their act together, then we can go with methanol fuel cells and  graphene super-capacitors.  Not a speck of lithium anywhere.  This is important stuff.

Trumpies new party, with a side-branch in Alberta aren't going to do it.  They just complain and kill people.  There was an Alberta article where they complained that academics are against them.  Duh!  Use money to pay them off and do physics.  They are all starving, and they must appear to hate Alberta to fit in with the culture and get jobs.  Do something, you whiners!

If I wrote this in the Natpost, then I would get all the haters.  Neat.

ps.  if I were Pootine and Big Killer Genocide Guy, I'd pour billions into the lefties, and micrysoft to put out shatty software.  :)  Oh, and the trumpies because they kill anybody with a brain.

Time to plant your tomato seeds

 This year, seeds are ridiculous.  If you haven't ordered your seeds by now, you're probably SOL.  The super-fancy tomato seeds seem to come in smaller and smaller amounts.  If you are a city gardener, you need the seeds with every type of disease resistance.  Only buy the seeds that grow tall on poles, which are frustratingly called 'determinate' or 'indeterminate', and I can never remember which.  I wish they just called them 'pole' or 'bush', like the beans.

So, you get out your seed flats, and you fill them with Miraclegro soil from Costco.  Then you pour on some water, and add more dry soil because you always put in too much water.

Sprinkle the seeds on the flats and label them.  Put a clear plastic cover on, or saran wrap.  Put the flats in the furnace room and wait about a week.

I also did onion seeds which is new for us.  As well, do your cannabis seeds.  I only have two left over from last year, I hope they are good.  Or else, it's time to order.  They always have lots of seeds, since it is totally illegal.  If you want seeds, then get a souvenir pack of 'beads' from CropKing seeds.  I have no hope for the legal seeds, since they are meant for commercial growers.  Everybody likes a different type of cannabis plant.

Last year, my hash plants went ballistic, and two plants are enough for anybody.  Only pick the buds as you can process them.  I picked them all at once, and the big juicy buds immediately started to rot.

As soon as you see the green on the flats, put them under lights.  When they get about 2 inches high, transplant each one into a small seedling pot.  Label them well.  Standard magic marker fades on cheap plastic in the sun.  I know how difficult that makes life.  :(

With your cannabis seeds, get the 'feminized' ones.  It's too late to sort out males.  In a bunch of seeds you'll find some 'super growers'.  These are the ones you want.  If you are lucky then, you can take cuttings and give them to friends.  Throw out the miserable ones.
