Thank you for your understanding, it really does help. I think the kindred spirits are why I like this thread. I could say I am as guilty as anyone for even bringing electricity to this property in the first place, but I think the company thought we'd use alot more than we do. (Not) I try to balance it out, I have five hummingbird feeders because I cut alot of gov imported kudsoe off the trees, that had alot of necter blossoms though, so I try to balance it out. I got out of the town became city because I couldn't stand the pavement any longer...I remember staring at a little plant that had worked it's way through a crack in the pavement, and heard a voice saying - i can repair all this in just a second of time. God?! I think so. I am thankful for all the special interest groups that have set in motion alot of good works. Without them there wouldn't even be any reclamation, and there would be a highway through the monongahela national forest...so I try to look on the good side...thank you for helping me do that. I do still talk to him! I'm glad I'm not the only one! He is in these trees and woods, no one knew them better, and free to come and go as always. I think he derives enormous satisfaction at holding those bulldozers back, I pity the poor workers when they are startled by the clink of a bullet off there earthmovers because now they are for sure haunted , ha! He would never harm anyone for no reason, but would love to give em a good scare! Sigh. I know there is poverty here, people think bringing in the big boys will help, but only for a short while then you are left with nothing but true poverty. You know what I'm saying huh cheeka, there is a project called marsella shale that alot fought to allow to proceed...now they are finding out they aren't even employing local help, and going under the properties that would have been compensated..screwed again! OK! Enough...thanks for letting me mush through this, now I have to do something about it in some way, some how, to make a difference...in this world of internet it can be accomplished. I think I will start with a senator.
