Ponds are among the richest and the most interesting natural environments to observe. Tomake a pond it is sufficient to have a garden or, a meadow or a wood near your home. It isnot necessary to be large, a square meter (9 square feet) of surface is sufficient, buttwo(18 sq. ft.) are better. Find a shady position in the garden. Dig a hole of about 2square meters, 50 cm(2 feet) deep. At least one side, the border has to gently slope downto allow to little animals to enter and leave, for hedgehogs and opossums to drink and tobirds to bath without being too deep. Put some sand in the bottom. Leave the grass on theside. Bare roots are okay. Waterproof the hole with a tarpaulin of white PVC. Why white?Because you can see aquatic animals better when they come near the shore. Cover the borderof the tarpaulin with the grass sod. Allow the tarpaulin to extend for at least 40 cm (16inches) beyond the sloping shore. In this position you can keep the water in such a way tocreate the typical conditions of a marsh. Fill up the pond with tap water and shovel somesand or soil in the bottom: they will benefit the aquatic plants. Go to a natural pond ormarsh and collect some aquatic plants. If it is possible, carry some gallons of water fromthe pond and pour them into your puddle, which will be enriched with microorganisms,algae, and animals, which live in ponds. In few days, your little pond will become greenwith algae and very rich of protozoa. Rapidly dragonflies will come to lay eggs, boatflies, coleoptera and aquatic spiders also will come. In the spring, frogs and newtswill come to lay eggs. The observation of the life in a pond is fascinating. You canremain for hours watching the organisms, which live in this ecosystem. Buy books torecognize the organisms that live in the ponds. See bibliography (5, 6). These texts willalso give you also useful information on the habits of these plants and animals. For anexercise, note your observations in a book, glue pictures, and sketch drawings. Everyyear, during the fall, you should clear out the pond. Shovel out the stinking mud, washthe tarpaulin, or changed it if it leaks, put some tap water, winter rain will supply theremaining part. In spite of what shopkeepers will tell you, your pond does not need pumpsto circulate water, nor aerators, nor falls, nor fountains, nor anything else. The pond isbetter to be as natural as possible. Little ponds of private gardens are very important toamphibians. Avoid introducing fish. They will eat the eggs of the amphibians and thetadpoles. Moreover, the newts will keep the pond free from the mosquito larvae. When thereare tadpoles, your pond will be visited by water snakes, with difficulty you will noticeof them!... and --- don't be frightened: they are harmless!

Pratt and Whitney aeronomics getting an injection of 80 million from Canadian Taxpayers to make these Quieter Engines for aircraft. That should tell you something. Maybe they will be Quieter when they are spraying the Toxic Chemicals over your head. I have to shake my head when the weather reporters say Lake Effect snow off the lake. They must have been extremely busy in the Phillipines fuelling up that Typhoon with the Chemtrails. Doesn’t matter what you call it. Conspiracy Theory, Geoengineering, Chemtrails. The fact is there are Patents for this and have been for years. Enjoy that Sht weather folks while choking on this Sht Spray. I like the Heavy Metal video by Don Felder You Tube. I have come to the conclusion that people don’t give a Rat’s Ass about being Sprayed like Rats. The only people that do are reading this.

70 degrees on December 7th, a woman walks in and says “what wonderful weather” I dont bother telling her its not. That it should be cold, it should be wintry. The truth is most people simply care about themselves and how they like 70 degrees in December right now. That is the problem people only care about themselves for the most part, no matter how I want to spin it, I always arrive at this uncomfortable fact, people only care about instant gratification these days. I dont know where or when it became this way it just is now, the people I talk to are just thrilled its 70 degrees in December. I can only wonder how long we have until the most ardent denier wont be able to deny and be happy and complacent in this meltdown of the natural world. They have people so confused and divided it is sad. I read we have until 2020 in the Northern Hemisphere before extinction begins. I mean… that is right around the corner. There is always a part of me that believes this is all a joke, that I am a crackpot tin foil hatter, but then there is this deeper part of me that knows its true. What is even more disturbing is the fact they dont talk about chemtrails, it makes me think the worst, they are obviously, undeniably dumping millions of tons of STUFF on us and they wont talk about, they spend millions hiring evil soulless traitors to debate what is so obvious…spreading ridicule and ire, yelling conspiracy theorist. The ultimate abuse, to use our tax dollars to destroy, hide and twist the truth through so many devious means.
People are so blind, they have 100’s if not thousands of Fema camps with millions of coffins. I cant believe the excuses they give for having them lying around. People are like sheep now, docile,the truth is most people simply dont care if they are being poisoned they will round us up, they will kill us. They, they are not fit to be described as human. Parasites who will kill the host rather then let the host thrive without parasites. Newsweek just wrote a terrible piece, on the cover it said, GEO-ENGINEERING CAN SAVE THE PLANET, can you believe it? They are trying to cover themselves. They have been killing us for decades, 10’s of millions dead because of what they have done, what they are spraying. Now they are going to ram a piece of legislation that mandates geo engineering making post fact poisoning legitimate. It is simply not OK that we even have to put up with this, we shouldn’t have to ask permission from our leaders to ask the oh so high and mighty to stop destroying what belongs to all of us. Meekness will not save us, nor being quiet.
