Wooden Hay Feeders

Wooden Hay FeedersI have repaired these hay feeders for a totally new life – one full of flowers.

Few farmers create hand made wooden hay feeders, as galvanised metal feeders are stronger and last longer, but as the countryside stays ‘up-to-date’, the image of the countryside is regularly back-dated in the media.

Is this the love of nostalgia at work or the wish to dream that something stays the same?

Advertisers often use this ‘country’ panacea to overcome market resistance to new products that have been factory farmed. The trouble is, a lot of people love to believe in phantom concepts so think that the whole world can be ‘organic’ and every farmed life form can be free-range.

I suppose that if we went back to lower human population levels and seasonal harvests then we could get closer to the ways of the past. Luckily the HoBB is small enough to remain organic, but then, we haven’t taken on the remit to feed the world – just those friends that visit.

Round-the-clock I am ignited by the future not the past, but acknowledge that in several areas we have all rushed into new-ways and forgotten ways that were far better. I am sure we can all re-learn the most useful things, especially if we can read them in print and not RDD (Rapidly Decaying Disk) Format. Each time I renovate something at HoBB Real, I try and build in harmony with its original makers because it ‘suits’.

When the two wooden hay feeders are in full bloom as ‘planters’, they will suit the farm. If I position them too close to the galvanised wire stock proof fencing, I am sure their floral contents will suit the sheep’s taste buds too!

Watch the Puppeteer not the Avatar

000199How are Avatars evolving?

This is an update on my thoughts having just heard that Cameron (Titanic fame) starts shooting a film called Avatar this April.

Here we go :

Before the convergence of the spiritual with the physical, both need to be seen.

I think Avatar use may be starting to help many more break into defining their ‘Spiritual Self’ in a practical, easily readable manner.

Some people’s view of authentic ‘self’ can be a bit foggy at times. Those allowing themselves to be pressured into living the life expected of them, are less in contact with ‘self’ – often they think about their more spiritual self as their alter ego. More people are beginning to ‘escape’ into other selves by developing their own avatar/s online AND offline.

It’s a fascinating picture to see evolving. People are almost becoming their own brand managers. Their avatars sort of evolve into personal property rights to be protected. (Did you see the film “What the Bleep do we Know”? It was a great film for causing audiences to question self and the very act of ‘being’ – if nothing else.)

Questions are the key to answers and those creating avatars are moved into more self questioning so this may lead to more self answers. During these early stages however, most avatars still contain masks of some sort (skeletons remaining locked in wardrobes) so view (read) them with this in mind.

Pure Avatars (Remember Max Headroom?) are thankfully exoskeletal – at the moment. The ultimate avatar, created by the genetic engineer, might one day be indistinguishable from reality. In full-circle, avatars in a world of avatars would not know their reality was a created reality.

I’ll type ‘avatar’ into search engines again next year – I predict it’s going to be a very big global growth area that may overtake ‘personal coaching’ in size unless in the years ahead, we all need two life coaches each – one for ourselves and one for our avatar life!

Best wishes from me AND the avatar in
me … which someone suggested (Ross Adler)
was probably ‘BookBod’.
