If you can, help others, if you cannot do that,
at least do not harm them.-Dalai Lama
In the chart above, the new moon also falls right next to Chiron in Pisces, opening a window to our deepest sensitivities. Wherever Chiron is in the chart, we have a natural empathy for the plight of others and so with Chiron in Pisces, we acutely feel the collective’s spiritual pain. Our wounds are the wounds of the collective and when we heal ourselves we heal everyone — there is no separation. Use this opportunity to delve into your own healing, knowing that compassion for others begins with compassion for yourself.
There’s so much support in this new moon. Jupiter, the ruler of Pisces, is in comforting, caring Cancer, a sign that it is exalted in. And the new moon is exactly trine Jupiter and making a mutual reception? I’m in love! It’s as if we pulled both the Ace of Cups and the 10 of Cups in a tarot spread — new beginnings wrapped up in the joy, happiness, celebration of completion. Yes, I’m conveniently ignoring the Jupiter/Pluto/Uranus t-square and Venus square the nodes, but can’t we just enjoy the sweet Pisces New Moon before we slide into April’s cardinal grand cross? Yes? Yes.
March continues the retrograde routine that has been with us since shortly before the New Year. This month, it’s Mars’ turn to turn around, an event that occurs on March 1. Mars retrogrades every two years and remains in that direction for approximately 10 weeks. It turns direct on May 19 and remains in Libra the entire time. In fact, Mars first entered Libra in December 2013 and doesn’t leave until late July 2014.
In Greek mythology Mars was the god of war. He was a primitive force whose focus was to survive at any cost. His was an intrinsic drive that could lead to uncontrollable rage and lust. The Romans softened him a little by making him the father of Romulus and Remus, the mythical founders of Rome. They associated him with agriculture and construction. However, he retained his characteristics of sexuality, anger and the drive to survive. Today we add qualities of courage, the entire range of human libido and the drive to achieve or manifest in the physical plane. Mars represents our physicality in almost any form. We can think of Mars as the drive wheel of the zodiac. Wherever we have Mars in our natal chart indicates where we feel impelled to express ourselves or to do something.
When Mars is retrograde by transit, this all changes. Our daily rhythms can get interrupted and we could feel frustrated in the house that Mars is transiting in our natal chart. We could lose our ambition and stop doing projects that are already underway. We could possibly feel confused about what we’re doing or be so disorganized that we waste time and energy trying to stay on track. One reason for this is that the longer Mars is retrograde, the lower our energy level tends to be. It’s important to be aware of the amount of energy we have and to limit our activity to fit that level. It may be less that normal and, no, this is not the aging process at work. It is simply a factor of Mars being retrograde. If we try to keep up our normal physical output we are using energy that really isn’t there. We can become depleted and have to pay it back later. In terms of physical health, Mars retrograde weakens the immune system. Acute illness could become more chronic if we don’t pay attention to our energy level. In addition, whatever we start while Mars is retrograde is unlikely to come to completion. So what is Mars retrograde good for and how can we use this transit constructively?
During this time we should be willing to change our perspective and expectations about timing of activities and events. This is a time to introspectively research our underlying motives that impel our actions. Note the house that Mars in transiting in your natal chart. That is where previously latent or unconscious parts of who we are could surface in consciousness. If Mars is also aspecting a natal planet or angle of our natal chart during its retrograde period, suppressed feelings of hostility or frustration could surface. These feelings may have been repressed because of the conflict or contention that they are likely to cause. This is a time to express them and deal with the consequences. One key word for Mars is authenticity.
Mercury, the messenger, has dominion over the mental and intellectual realms; which includes all forms of communication, memory, transportation, travel, computers and commerce. Because Mercury and Venus are always close together, areas of emotionality and relationships; ruled by Venus are also affected during Mercury Retrograde.
Normally Mercury retrograde affects my hand-eye co-ordination, and general timing & agility (or lack thereof). I usually have a few minor computer issues, and maybe a case of clumsiness, those are just the givens, there’s always more, depending on those variable factors of placement. I knew this time was gonna be rough because this recent mercury retrograde hit in the sign of Pisces, right where I have four planets nestled together. This cluster of Sun, Mercury, Venus & Mars is usually a solid source of energy and ideas; but when Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces it becomes something more akin to a solid steamroller. Like some kind of virus, Mercury retrograde affects the nearby planets with it’s unique variety of mayhem and chaos. After a while it gets to feeling like a standing eight count!
In the early 1930s, a Cleveland dentist named Weston A. Price (1870-1948) began a series of unique investigations. For over ten years, he traveled to isolated parts of the globe to study the health of populations untouched by western civilization. His goal was to discover the factors responsible for good dental health. His studies revealed that dental caries and deformed dental arches resulting in crowded, crooked teeth are the result of nutritional deficiencies, not inherited genetic defects.
The groups Price studied included sequestered villages in Switzerland, Gaelic communities in the Outer Hebrides, indigenous peoples of North and South America, Melanesian and Polynesian South Sea Islanders, African tribes, Australian Aborigines and New Zealand Maori. Wherever he went, Dr. Price found that beautiful straight teeth, freedom from decay, good physiques, resistance to disease and fine characters were typical of native groups on their traditional diets, rich in essential nutrients.
When Dr. Price analyzed the foods used by isolated peoples he found that, in comparison to the American diet of his day, they provided at least four times the water-soluble vitamins, calcium and other minerals, and at least TEN times the fat-soluble vitamins, from animal foods such as butter, fish eggs, shellfish, organ meats, eggs and animal fats–the very cholesterol-rich foods now shunned by the American public as unhealthful. These healthy traditional peoples knew instinctively what scientists of Dr. Price’s day had recently discovered–that these fat-soluble vitamins, vitamins A and D, were vital to health because they acted as catalysts to mineral absorption and protein utilization. Without them, we cannot absorb minerals, no matter how abundant they may be in our food. Dr. Price discovered an additional fat-soluble nutrient, which he labeled Activator X, that is present in fish livers and shellfish, and organ meats and butter from cows eating rapidly growing green grass in the Spring and Fall. All primitive groups had a source of Activator X, now thought to be vitamin K2, in their diets.
The isolated groups Dr. Price investigated understood the importance of preconceptual nutrition for both parents. Many tribes required a period of special feeding before conception, in which nutrient-dense animal foods were given to young men and women. These same foods were considered important for pregnant and lactating women and growing children. Price discovered them to be particularly rich in minerals and in the fat-soluble activators found only in animal fats.
The isolated people Price photographed–with their fine bodies, ease of reproduction, emotional stability and freedom from degenerative ills–stand forth in sharp contrast to civilized moderns subsisting on the “displacing foods of modern commerce,” including sugar, white flour, pasteurized milk, lowfat foods, vegetable oils and convenience items filled with extenders and additives.
The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charity founded in 1999 to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated nonindustrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets. Dr. Price’s research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.
The board and membership of the Weston A. Price Foundation stand united in the belief that modern technology should be harnessed as a servant to the wise and nurturing traditions of our ancestors rather than used as a force destructive to the environment and human health; and that science and knowledge can validate those traditions.
Most United States citizens have been brainwashed into believing that cannabis is dangerous and has no therapeutic value. Yet, on February 2, 2001, the Unites States Patent Office issued – patent #6630507 – to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – which clearly states:
”Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.”
The government knows that cannabis has health benefits. This patent lists the use of certain cannabinoids – found within the cannabis sativa plant – as useful in certain neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, HIV and dementia. And, yet, this is the same U.S. federal government that steadfastly denies that cannabis has any medicinal value. Gee, I wonder why?
The Department of Health and Human services goes on to say – in its filed patent: ”Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention…”
This is a medical crime against U.S. citizens
In 1994, studies at the Medical College of the University of Virginia were funded by the Institute of Health in the hopes that research would show that marijuana damages the immune system. What the scientists found instead was that THC – a cannabis component – slowed the growth of three kinds of cancers.These types of cancer were lung, breast and a virus induced leukemia. Also, in 1974, researchers learned that THC – the active chemical in marijuana – shrank or destroyed brain tumors in test mice.
The United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) quickly shut down the Virginia study and destroyed its results. This ‘protective’ agency went on to stop (and destroy) all research – throughout the country – pertaining to cannabis and granted exclusive research rights to major pharmaceutical companies. Does this sound like a ‘free and open society’ – geared toward the betterment of mankind?
Otter signed Senate Bill 1337 just after Chobani yogurt founder Hamdi Ulukaya broke with the rest of the $2.4-billion Idaho dairy industry by asking the governor to veto the bill. Ulukaya told the governor that S. 1337 “would limit transparency and make some instances of exposing the mistreatment of animals in the state punishable by imprisonment.”
The governor, in signing the bill, said Idaho agricultural producers must be “secure in their property and their livelihood.”
Get Ready; Mandatory Vaccines for all kids coming soon to every school in the U.S.
One university in New York is telling students they can’t attend class if they haven’t been vaccinated after a mumps break, which has been plastered across mainstream media outlets
. The worst part is that the students suffering from the rash of mumps cases were all vaccinated.
There are 13 confirmed cases now, and more confirmations are coming in every day. School officials acted without cause, and officially banned all students who didn’t have a mumps vaccine, even though the students affected were the ones vaccinated. Students with a mumps vaccine were allowed to attend classes, despite the findings that there may have been an issue with vaccinations. This is just one more example of the dim decisions made by a brainwashed public – including institutions of higher learning, which should know better.
Concerns first arose when Fordham University students
came down with flu-like symptoms, which later turned out to be adult mumps in every single case. When the number of students suffering from similar symptoms kept increasing, vaccination records were looked into as a possible suggestion for the cause. The inquiry led to the unusual discovery that not one of the infected students was unvaccinated, but that every single case had been.
Parents reported that nearly 75 percent of children ages 6 to 17 have at least one electronic device in their bedroom, with many using those devices right before bedtime.
“To ensure a better night’s sleep for their children, parents may want to limit their [children’s use of] technology in the bedroom near or during bedtime,” said Orfeu Buxton, PhD, Harvard Medical School and a member of the poll’s task force, in a statement.
“We found that when parents take action to protect their children’s sleep, their children sleep better,” added Kristen L. Knutson, PhD, of the University of Chicago.
Radiation and Cancer Risks from Breast Compression, something women are not aware of but should know.
As early as 1928, physicians were warned to handle “cancerous breasts with care- for fear of accidentally disseminating cells” and spreading cancer (7). Nevertheless, mammography entails tight and often painful compression of the breast, particularly in premenopausal women. This may lead to distant and lethal spread of malignant cells by rupturing small blood vessels in or around small, as yet undetected breast cancers (8). [CJF emphasis added]
During mammograms, breasts are squeezed between plates to make them flat with a pressure that some say is as much as 50 pounds or more. That pressure can cause a rupture, as pointed out above.
Knowing the above background information, let’s consider what a 25-year study published in the British Medical Journal in early 2014  revealed about mammography. But first, allow me to share with readers that in my 2012 book, A Cancer Answer, Holistic BREAST Cancer Management, A Guide to Effective & Non-Toxic Treatments, I devote two entire chapters to discussing mammograms in great detail.
The BMJ study evaluated Canadian women ages 40 to 59 who: 1) had regular mammograms and breast exams by trained nurses, and 2) those who had breast exams alone. Surprisingly, the death rate from breast cancer was about the same in both groups. However, one in 424 women who had mammograms received unnecessary medical treatments, which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
Needless to say, the Canadian breast cancer study has become a polarizing event in the divide between those in medicine who believe mammograms save lives and researchers who claim there is no evidence to that effect and only leaves the issue muddled. Furthermore, in light of the Canadian study, the American Cancer Society says it is rethinking its position on mammography and will be issuing revised guidelines sometime later in 2014.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Army removed 588 soldiers from sensitive jobs such as sexual assault counselors and recruiters after finding they had committed infractions such as sexual assault, child abuse and drunken driving, officials said Wednesday.
The move resulted from orders by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel last year that all the services review the qualifications of people holding those jobs as part of an effort to stem a rising number of sexual assaults in the military.
The Army said it reviewed the qualifications and records of 20,000 soldiers and found 588 unsuitable for their jobs as recruiters, drill sergeants, training school instructors and staff of sexual assault prevention and response programs. It was unclear whether they were reassigned or kicked out of the service altogether and precisely when the review was completed.
Lt. Col. Alayne Conway, an Army spokeswoman, said examples of soldier infractions found in the review included sexual assault, child abuse and drunken driving. It was unclear whether those had happened during their military service or before.
Unless we close the existing nuclear power plants and build no new ones, we are destined to repeat the on-going stories of Fukushima, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania, and the myriad other sites that have already caused untold environmental, health, social, and economic costs. So will it be sanity or business as usual? Perhaps it was Albert Einstein who defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. We must choose a sane path away from nuclear energy. Business as usual is Insane.
Saying he’s optimistic the economy and the government’s fiscal picture have finally turned the corner five years into his tenure, President Obama announced a $3.9 trillion 2015 budget Tuesday that calls for tax hikes and a $60 billion boost in spending next year.
I Am the Law! The President, the Sheriff, The Individuals of Congress go rogue from U.S. law and peoples constitutional rights.
Connecticut Cop to Gun Owner: ‘It sounds like you’re anti-American, it sounds like you’re anti-law … I’m the master.’
‘Connecticut State Police Spokesman Lt. Paul Vance might want to reconsider his occupation – because he really isn’t very good at public relations.
A woman known as “Ashley” called and spoke to Lt. Vance regarding the possible repercussions of the refusal of many of the state’s residents to either register their firearms or turn them over, in compliance with the state’s ridiculous new law. Things are getting heated in the state as tens of thousands refuse to comply with the unconstitutional law, the home addresses of pro-gun control members of the state legislature have been published, and a well-armed patriot group in the states points out, “We are familiar with the finer points of marksmanship.”
Vance said so many outrageous things during the taped call that it’s hard to limit ourselves to just a couple of quotes, but here are the two that really tell the tale:
“Ma’am, it sounds like you’re anti-American, it sounds like you’re anti-law.”
“I’m the master, ma’am. I’m the master.”’
Gun rights group Connecticut Carry has issued an ultimatum to politicians in the Constitution State today, telling the government that they should either follow through on their threats to try to confiscate more than 325,000 undocumented firearms and 2 million standard capacity magazines, or admit that they passed a law without the consent of the people, and will repeal it in its entirety:
U.S. News: Obama’s Not the Only One With the Power of the Phone; Lawmakers worried about Obama’s use of executive authority should follow his example.
If you’re like me you are paying attention to what is transpiring within our government. Many senior General officers are being fired (or “retired early”). Homeland Security, the Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security Administration and several other federal agencies are soliciting for hollow point ammunition on the pretext it will be used for “target practice.” Why does the Social Security Administration need hollow point ammo for target practice, you may ask? They don’t, but since the information about DHS soliciting for millions of rounds has some people alarmed, the government has decided to spread-out the purchases amongst other agencies as not to alarm the civilian population. This also coincides with foreign troops (Russian) practicing crowd control maneuvers on American soil
. There has been an American “practice town” built for just this purpose. I could site more instances regarding FEMA camps and even the American 3rd Infantry Division’s new mission, but you get the idea, right?
Barack Hussein Obama is making power grabs more and more; and is openly circumventing the Congress to consolidate more power to the office of the president. This should have some people very alarmed.
Press Freedom: U.S. Government now Allowed to Spy on and Prosecute Journalists to “Protect National Security”
In an order published by Attorney General Eric Holder on February 27, the Obama administration granted itself unprecedented powers to spy on and prosecute journalists. The new policy announcement directly violates the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which provides that “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom speech, or of the press…”
Last year, the administration announced it was preparing a series of “reforms” after it was caught wiretapping the phone lines of journalists with the Associated Press. In what has become the standard practice of the administration, however, the banner of “reform” has been used to obscure the establishment of the legal foundations for a police state.
Although the administration presents the new protocols as protective of democratic rights, the content of the order represents a significant escalation in the attack on freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
Michelle Obama Now Requires 26 Servants
Papal Canonization – Two Popes Who Protected Child-Raping Catholic Priests Will Be Made Saints In 2014
(just like Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize a month into office!)
‘For the Second Sunday of Easter, or Divine Mercy Sunday, taking place on April 27, Pope Francis will preside over a public Mass in St. Peter’s Square at 10 a.m., during which he will canonize both Bl. John Paul II and John XXIII. Announced by the Vatican last September, the canonization of both pontiff’s was approved after the verification of the second miracle needed in the case of Bl. John Paul II last summer.’ …
The Pope played a leading role in a systematic cover-up of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests, according to a shocking documentary to be screened by the BBC tonight.
In 2001, while he was a cardinal, he issued a secret Vatican edict to Catholic bishops all over the world, instructing them to put the Church’s interests ahead of child safety.
The document recommended that rather than reporting sexual abuse to the relevant legal authorities, bishops should encourage the victim, witnesses and perpetrator not to talk about it. And, to keep victims quiet, it threatened that if they repeat the allegations they would be excommunicated.
The Panorama special, Sex Crimes And The Vatican, investigates the details of this little-known document for the first time. The programme also accuses the Catholic Church of knowingly harbouring paedophile clergymen. It reveals that priests accused of child abuse are generally not struck off or arrested but simply moved to another parish, often to reoffend. It gives examples of hush funds being used to silence the victims.
Before being elected as Pope Benedict XVI in April last year, the pontiff was Cardinal Thomas Ratzinger who had, for 24 years, been the head of the powerful Congregation of the Doctrine of The Faith, the department of the Roman Catholic Church charged with promoting Catholic teachings on morals and matters of faith
‘Amnesty International has released an important report saying that the international community should cut off military aid to Israel because Israel has killed dozens of civilians at peaceful protests in the last three years “widespread impunity”– including 22 civilians last year. The human rights organization concludes:
Amnesty International “urges the USA, the European Union and the rest of the international community to suspend all transfers of munitions, weapons and other equipment to Israel.
“Without pressure from the international community the situation is unlikely to change any time soon,” said Philip Luther [Middle East and North Africa Director at Amnesty International].
“Too much civilian blood has been spilled. This long-standing pattern of abuse must be broken. If the Israeli authorities wish to prove to the world they are committed to democratic principles and international human rights standards, unlawful killings and unnecessary use of force must stop now.
Dustification not Demolition by use of a electric pulse energy machine. Demolition would have left significantly more debris because of the collapsing. Instead we see pulverizing of massive amounts of steel and concrete at once.
I own a copy of Dr. Judy Wood’s book Where Did the Towers Go? (sent to me by a reader). I have read over several chapters but haven’t gone through the whole book from cover to cover just yet. It seems that most of Wood’s most vocal critics have not read her book at all, but this may be proven wrong in the comments to follow.
In her book (which has the impressive appearance of a glossy, full-color textbook) Wood posits that not only can plane impact and fires not account for what happened to the Twin Towers, neither can conventional controlled demolition.
She believes that some kind of directed free energy weapon was responsible for the destruction, including the mid-air pulverization, of the buildings. She coined the term “dustification” to describe how solid materials, including steel, seemed to disintegrate into dust as the buildings were being destroyed.
She points out that had conventional explosives brought the buildings down, the material would have slammed into the ground with a great force, potentially causing serious damage to the “bathtub” keeping the Hudson River from flooding lower Manhattan. She says the building hitting the ground would also have shown in the seismic evidence, which she contends it didn’t.
The very title of her book suggests her main point: that there was nowhere near enough rubble to account for the “collapse” of two 110-storey buildings. She contends that most of the material that made up the buildings was turned to dust and simply blew away.
Implanted Chip Will Provide 3D Images from Inside the Heart
Researchers have developed the technology for a catheter-based device that would provide forward-looking, real-time, 3D imaging from inside the heart, coronary arteries and peripheral blood vessels. With its volumetric imaging, the new device could better guide surgeons working in the heart, and potentially allow more of patients’ clogged arteries to be cleared without major surgery.
The device integrates ultrasound transducers with processing electronics on a single 1.4 millimeter silicon chip. On-chip processing of signals allows data from more than a hundred elements on the device to be transmitted using just 13 tiny cables, permitting it to easily travel through circuitous blood vessels. The forward-looking images produced by the device would provide significantly more information than existing cross-sectional ultrasound.
Researchers have developed and tested a prototype able to provide image data at 60 frames per second, and plan next to conduct animal studies that could lead to commercialization of the device.
“Our device will allow doctors to see the whole volume that is in front of them within a blood vessel,” said F. Levent Degertekin, a professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. “This will give cardiologists the equivalent of a flashlight so they can see blockages ahead of them in occluded arteries. It has the potential for reducing the amount of surgery that must be done to clear these vessels.”

SAN FRANCISCO — Tech companies love new ideas, unless they belong to someone else. Then any breakthroughs must be neutralized or bought. Silicon Valley executives know all too well that a competitor’s unchecked innovation can quickly topple the mightiest tech titan.
Just how far Silicon Valley will go to remove such risks is at the heart of a class-action lawsuit that accuses industry executives of agreeing between 2005 and 2009 not to poach one another’s employees. Headed to trial in San Jose this spring, the case involves 64,000 programmers and seeks billions of dollars in damages. Its mastermind, court papers say, was the executive who was the most successful, most innovative and most concerned about competition of all — Steve Jobs.
The suit shows how more than two years after his death, Mr. Jobs still casts a long shadow. It also offers a portrait of Silicon Valley engineers that differs sharply from their current caricature as well-paid villains who are driving up the price of real estate in San Francisco and making the city unbearable for others.
Instead, the court documents portray the engineers as “victims of a conspiracy” who were cheated by their bosses, said Joseph R. Saveri, a lawyer for the plaintiffs.
“These are the engineers building the hardware and software that are the lifeblood of the technology industry,” Mr. Saveri said. “But they were prevented from being able to freely negotiate what their skills are worth.”
Doesn’t this pic speak volumes about the degree of weather forecast degradation routinely found on The Weather Channel? By and large The Weather Channel (TWC) content in the form of the hard weather reports and weekly forecasts are now invariably wrong and often misleading.
Yes, TWC reports are relentlessly thrown into disarray because of geoengineering programs such as chemtrail spraying across America. Nevertheless, TWC continues to artificially prop up the fabricated government narrative with so many false explanations, fraudulent maps and diagrams, and fictitious theories. TWC then supports this fanciful fiction with so much flawed science, false data and fake figures that are fed to them (by NOAA & NASA?) to serve as faulty evidence for all the weird and wacky weather.
Of course, the $64,000 question here is: Exactly who is it that writes the fictional, comedic scripts for the weather reporters, and how do they come up with their material? You have to admit, those guys or gals are really good. Hollywood could use such gifted screenplay writers as these folks who make up one weather report after another in such an
entertaining entraining way. You can really hear and feel, these days, the obvious mind-control programming going on with every news segment on TWC.
The whole weather-reporting establishment really gets creative when they invent stories out of thin air regarding Polar Vortexes plunging the planet into new Ice Ages. You really have to give it to them! They’ve got the whole world doing a 180° as they squash Global Warming, and trumpet ‘Global Cooling’. Bearing in mind that they executed this about face only after they greatly exaggerated and misrepresented the many artificial/chemical ice-nucleated weather events occurring throughout the USA this winter. The whole scenario is not too like the Sochi Olympics, where they had snow machines ready to produce on demand because of how unseasonably hot it was there this winter, as it has been in previous years.
This system explains so much. For years working in the industry I was always on the lookout for anything indicative of a sprayer system. I had a little doubt about the chemtrail story because I never saw evidence of a sprayer system in all the years I worked on airplanes. It didn’t dawn on me it would be removable. This system is made so that it can be installed quickly, used, and then removed as desired. When not installed, the aircraft can be used as a normal 737 cargo plane. The system can also be moved from one aircraft to another. Main cabin windows are held in by just a few screws. If I remember correctly, it is eight screws per window. Then put the other window plugs in. I have been told there is also accommodation for releasing a fluid tank from the drain for the deactivated aft lav. This is a 737 cargo plane that has been converted from a passenger plane. They are very common. The workers at the facility saw this thing on a test run in front of the hangar. Water was used in the test. It came out of the sprayers in a fine mist. If sprayed from several thousand feet, people on the ground would never know they had been sprayed. My friend said they were testing to see the spray pattern and next they were going to move the spray nozzles to the back windows and test again. Officially it is said to be a sprayer for oil dispersant. That was the second explanation. The first was that it was a big crop duster. The company realized the workers weren’t buying that, and laughing about it. They knew enough about aircraft to know that was impossible. So they changed the story. The supervisors in the plant call it a nigger-killer. (assholes!) The aircraft is going to be sent to Africa when it leaves this facility. When this facility was leased by another company, I worked there for 15 years. There was another aircraft that came through there years ago that requested BLOOD RESISTANT CARPET!!! The scary thing is, there was carpet like that available. Now you tell me why they would know they would need blood resistant carpet ahead of time??? Anyway, I just thought it was noteworthy that this plane was also bound for Africa.

I have to live with myself, and so,
I want to be fit for myself to know;
I want to be able as days go by,
Always to look myself straight in the eye;
I don’t want to stand with the setting sun
And hate myself for the things I’ve done.
I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf
A lot of secrets about myself,
And fool myself as I come and go
Into thinking that nobody else will know
The kind of man I really am;
I don’t want to dress myself up in sham.
I want to deserve all men’s respect;
But here in this struggle for fame and pelf,
I want to be able to like myself.
I don’t want to think as I come and go
That I’m for bluster and bluff and empty show.
I never can hide myself from me,
I see what others may never see,
I know what others may never know,
I never can fool myself — and so,
Whatever happens, I want to be
Self-respecting and conscience free.–
