MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
Hi Les, nice to chat. Yes it's a busy old life! Me - I have two jobs as well as my main passions mentioned... so time is always tight and I am a bit careful now not to undertake more than I can fulfill, however, will look at your admin suggestion for Houhora area when things are a little more under control, after Spring. I do know Dierdre from the other transition site... I have been a member of Transition Town Kaitaia since inception and have friends there, though we are 50km north so makes sense to focus our energy on our local area. Look forward to hearing of your visit over here and maybe we will skype talk one day. Ciao Sue
i know diedre kent, but i am not active in the movement at the moment - the health group wound down sadly - I am feeling to get back into it but not sure in what way or even if the movement is still going in nelson
nice to meet you and thank you for accepting my membership I am looking for something to put my energies to .....
Thanks for friending me, Les. I am unable to drag the text box as you suggested. It doesn't move. Any tips for getting it to go where you suggested above? "Start by dragging the TEXT BOX from below to the top of this center column."
Hi Les! Thank you for your message. I will be in Duluth, Minnesota in October and November, helping the Loaves and Fishes group, and hopefully setting up time banking up there, as well as a Google map of fruit and nut trees available for gleaning. There is a lot to do up there, and I am very happy to be helping people in the area near where I was born (Superior, Wisconsin - just across the bridge). I don't have plans to return to New Zealand until Dec 2012, but it may be sooner, depending on how things go in the US.
Just today I gave a whole list of resources to an organizer here in St Croix Falls, Wisconsin. Being nomadic, I don't stay anywhere very long!
Thanks for friending me. I see that you 're very active in alternative currency thinking. My husband, Russ, is as well. We're located in the Bay Area of northern California. Russ' been reading Stephen Zarlenga's book "The Lost Science of Money" w/c is available for purchase on monetary.org for $80. Apparetit's worth the money. The monetary oppression by the banksters began in 4,000bc, according to Zarlenga, and never stopped. This is a serious, age-old world-domination problem. We're attending the "The American Monetary Institute Conference" in Chicago September 28-October2. Register at monetary.org.Please come!
Thank you for your welcome. I would like to start a discussion about whether BUSTED (Build us service trains before energy depletion) is wrong headed. Specifically, whether there is a future for large trucks and semis based on electricity and whether we will need the train. Can you tell me how to do this?
Thank you for the welcome Les I will be working on my personal info and may take you up on your offer of assistance. I will look into local Transition groups to see what is where. I am just finishing Ellen LaConte's book, "Life Rules" and coming out of retreat with Joanna Macy. As a facilitator in Joanna's "the Work That Reconnects" I am interested in bringing this body of work into the Transition movement. Having read some of the discussions here I feel I have landed in a good spot to connect with other Change Agents......more to come, Blessings.
Hi Les, I have been in Beijing for eight years. I am looking to repatriate back toa transition town in the U.S. but not sure how to do this from the outside. I have family in Southern Idaho, and good friends in Washington State.
Thanks Les, you say "once I launch the Cadillac site".........I just added our website, so is that what you are referring to that need approval? Or is there some other way to "launch the Cadillac site"? Yes, the facebook page is for Cadillac. Transition Cadillac. Thank you!
