Grey Water System Installation

Grey Water System InstallationOne bath or shower later and I’m sure the HoBB Garden Plants could use my dead skin cells in some way. There’s magic in re-cycling and it is not something that is green or environmental or hippy or alternative or new. The only thing that is new, and thus so green at the edges that it beggars belief, is the habit of NOT recycling.

I don’t think people are naturally wasteful. I think the idea of “waste” was designed, but who designed it and why?


Whilst Eco green earth friendly friends work to re-cycle and reduce ‘waste’, others are in the business of promoting waste who are usually clots with a lot of clout behind them. For example, at the moment, I am in control of my own dead skin cells, and bath water, but what if a government banned the use of skin cells and bath water on gardens. This would force me to find a new way to remain legal. What if the same legislature then banned baths and allowed only showers – what would happen to all the baths for they can’t all be used as plant troughs – would they go to waste?

More examples: Billions of pounds worth of food is thrown in the bin each year because of new food packaging laws (UK) that require shops to put ‘best before’ , ‘sell by’ and ‘use by’ dates on foods. We are all being brainwashed beyond our instinct to regard these dates as gospel. Packaging is designed to cause over-buying and the dates usurp our minds so that we ignore our natural instincts of smell, look and taste when assessing when to throw food away and whether to buy it in the first place. Our habits are being designed by those that profit from making us ‘waste’ and like balls, we bounce back into the system to make further purchases thus feed this web of planned obsolescence. It’s very well planned by the way and it makes big profits but if we are going to contribute to it we must be honest with ourselves – we are to blame.

Another example: In Wales, all literature printed must be produced in two languages thus, if combined into one leaflet or magazine, it will consume 100% more ink and paper regarless of whether you can read one or both languages. If you read one of the languages only then the other half is going to waste. Not every printer / publisher creates this waste problem as some are sensible enough to produce two versions seperately so that readers can opt for one or the other. We compost paper at the HoBB but it would be a better net gain of energy if less paper was produced.

Well I seem to have talked my way out of grey water system installation but I’ll return here at a later date when it is all installed and I can put a few pictures up for you.

Big Picture

Gina, Intergalactic Real Estate AgentAnd as we continue within space and land upon ever distant outcrops of time, we will find more questions to intrigue us and more ‘unknowns’ to involve our time. During this time we will gain much and be entertained by our own discoveries.

This self perpetuating race to go further will take us to the horizons we set but whilst we seek such distractions, all the answers will remain, close to hand.

It is difficult to realise that we all hold evidence of everything. I exist, therefore I am the result of that which existed before me but as none of us can track down our family tree to a point before records began, we make up the ‘past’ to fit the present.

The Big Picture can seem so big that its edges are beyond us, yet many still to this day, like to imagine that they know a frame surrounds the edges of this picture. Some go so far as to describe the frame and some go further to define the picture framer. These people and their supporters are very wise in the eyes of those who see speculation as fact.

Today’s artists and authors work to share their understandings, yet despite being ‘of the now’, we still witness more than one version of most present occurences. At a time when fewer could write and paint, it was easier to be the biggest fish in a small pond. A ‘Google’ search in 2000 BC for those who were able to write what they witnessed would come up with only a few names and it is to the credit of these few that we are able to read anything about their times. But the further we go back in history, the less we know – the further we project what might be into the future, the less accurate we ‘may’ become.

Here we sit in a small window of being, uncertain as to whether linear or looped time rules because we lack the full text instructions for history, and our ancestors didn’t keep the original packaging we came in.

But if I could regress myself a few billion years I would understand my seed part in the making of this ‘result’.

Those who look ahead and behind along a linear track, are overlooking themselves and the answers they carry forward within them each day. Everything is the sum total, so all the answers are here as I type these words to you. Would it help to know what part of the primeval ooze you swam in or who was your earliest ancestor off record? Enjoy the mystery whilst it lasts!

Today, we all have the potential, to step another step and forge another tomorrow. Your life counts as you do, because you paint more of the big picture. If that picture holds together as one effective canvas that allows for the additions of tommorrow’s people, you are a good painter and a good friend to all and I, for one, thank you.
