Doreen Virtue 'Angel Numbers' says of the number 210 : "Continue having conversations with God about your soul's desires. Keep feeling grateful for what you have and for what you're manifesting. Faith and gratitude are the magic keys for you and your manifestations". These sorts of interpretations of numbers are apparently more significant if you "see" the number sequence more than once in a short span of time. xxxx

The Cosmic Accounting System - Buckminster Fuller

"We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living " - Buckminster Fuller

What is the "cosmic accounting system?" from Fuller's Economics.

Energy is the real value of wealth, not money. The idea is how to share it fairly to make sure everyone has a share of the wealth, so people don't have to work for a living or starve to death. Yes it's true... read more below and check out the Youtube video too.



"...We have pointed out that the geologist Francois de Chardenedes wrote for me a scenario of the technology of nature's producing petroleum which disclosed that the amount of energy employed by nature as heat and pressure for the amount of time required to produce each gallon of petroleum, if paid for at the rate at which the public utilities now charge retail customers for electricity, must cost over a million dollars a gallon. Combine that information with the discovery that approximately 60 percent of the employed in U.S. America are working at tasks that are not producing any life support. Jobs of inspectors-of-inspectors; jobs with insurance companies that induce people to bet that their house is going to be destroyed by fire while the insurance company bets that it isn't. All these are negative preoccupations...jobs with the underwriting of insurance underwriters by other insurance underwriters -- people checking up on one another in all the different departments of the Treasury, the Internal Revenue, FBI, CIA, and in counterespionage. About 60 percent of all human activity in America is not producing any physical life protection, life support, or development accommodation, which physical life support alone constitutes real wealth.
``The majority of Americans reach their jobs by automobile, probably averaging four gallons a day -- thereby, each is spending four million real cosmic-physical-Universe dollars a day without producing any physical Universe life-support wealth accredited in the energy-time -- metabolic -- accounting system eternally governing regenerative Universe. Humans are designed to learn how to survive only through trial-and-error-won knowledge. Long-known errors are, however, no longer cosmically tolerated. The 350 trillion cosmic dollars a day wasted by the 60 percent of no-wealth-producing human job-holders in the U.S.A., together with the $19 quadrillion a day wasted by the no-wealth-producing human job-holders in all other automobiles-to-work countries, also can no longer be cosmically tolerated.
``Today we have computers that enable us to answer some very big questions if all the relevant data is fed into the computer and all the questions are properly asked. As for instance, ``Which would cost society the least: to carry on as at present, trying politically to create more no-wealth-producing jobs, or paying everybody handsome fellowships to stay at home and save all those million-dollar-each gallons of petroleum?'' Stated evermore succinctly, the big question will be: ``Which costs more -- paying all present job-holders a billionaire's lifelong $400,000-a-day fellowship to stay at home, or having them each spend $4 million a day to commute to work?'' Every computer will declare it to be much less expensive to pay people not to go to work. The same computers will also quickly reveal that there is no way in which each and every human could each day spend $400,000 staying at the most expensive hotels and doing equally expensive things; they could rarely spend 4000 of the 1980-deflated dollars a day, which is only 1 percent of a billionaire's daily income."

Birthday wishes and gifts

What do you usually wish for on your birthday?  I'd like TWO presents, if you are willing to participate... of course it's up to you if you choose to give or not, all I ask is at least you take a look.

Am I being greedy? Not at all, as they are for someone else!
  • Firstly, I'd like you to make a difference to someone's life that you meet today or tomorrow (or every day if you wish)
Whether it be a smile, a kind gesture or help of any kind. They don't have to know it was you and it's even better if you do it for a stranger.

Further from home, you will have now heard about the Earthquake in Haiti where the death toll is around 200,000 with 250,000 injured that need treatment and upto 1.5 million homeless.

Around 36000 are listed as missing. That's nearly 100 that share the same birthday as me... AND YOU! There only misfortune was where they lived when this disaster struck.
  • So secondly, please go to the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) if you can afford to make even a small donation (details below), as every little helps. Otherwise just say a prayer for those on the other side of the planet to show the world that we care about everyone that we live with on this small Earth.  
  • Whatever you do, take that action now!
Thank you for your best wishes and gifts, knowing that by sharing with others, you improve the life of everyone around you - including yourself.


Ways to Donate to the DEC Haiti Earthquake Appeal:
Online: www.dec.org.uk
Phone: Call 0370 60 60 900
Text: Text “GIVE” to 70077 to donate £5.00

    Social media gets Film Director $30 Million Deal

    I read this great story about a film Director, Fede Alvarez, from Montevideo in Uruguay, who shared his 5 minute film on Youtube with everybody. It took US $300 to shoot the live action and about a year (part time) to complete the 90 vfx shots.

    The Youtube film then got a lot of attention from Hollywood landing him a deal with Sam Raimi to direct a $30 million film. It just goes to prove, anyone with some talent can become a hit on the internet, by simply using it to share their message with the world! Social media is free speech and leverage for the little guy to compete with the big shots. Use it or lose it...


    Federico Alvarez' short film Panic Attack! hit YouTube last month and became the latest example of viral video, a term I genuinely despise because studios have co-opted the idea to try to force marketing maneuvers to "go viral." Doesn't work that way. But Alvarez' short, produced for $300, has already grabbed over 1.5 million hits, the attention of Sam Raimi, and now, a $30 million contract for Alvarez to develop a feature film.

    The BBC reports that the deal has been consumated, although based on the success of something like Paranormal Activity, the amount may seem quite high, given what Alvarez was able to accomplish for 1/100,000th of the new contract. There is some symmetry here, though, because $30 million was what director Neill Blomkamp used to create District 9 with producer Peter Jackson. And there are some real similarities between the two sci-fi projects.

    "I uploaded (Panic Attack!) on a Thursday and on Monday my inbox was totally full of e-mails from Hollywood studios," Alvarez said. "It was amazing, we were all shocked."

    The movie Mr Alvarez has been asked to produce is a sci-fi film to be shot in Uruguay and Argentina. He says he intends to start from scratch and develop a new story for the project.

    "If some director from some country can achieve this just uploading a video to YouTube, it obviously means that anyone could do it," he added.

    The director says, however, he's not interested in making a feature version of Panic Attack!, choosing to start from scratch on a new story. I'm not sure why, frankly, especially given the money involved, but maybe Raimi saw enough of his talent to give Alvarez the chance of a lifetime. Who knows whether or not he'll return to this story down the line.

    New York - 'Thinnest house' sells for £1.3million

    If you thought houses and rents were expensive in the UK, take a look at this 2-bed house built in an alleyway that just sold for $2.1 million (£1.3 million)

    Listed in August 2009 for $2.7m, the Real estate broker said that "despite the awkward dimensions, the property will fetch its listed price due to its uniqueness, history and location in one of the city's most famous preserved neighborhoods."

    Well there can't be too much confidence in the US / New York Market if it took 4 months to sell and at 22% below the value they expected! It's still good money for an approx. 1071 sq ft property. That's nearly $2000 per square foot (£1200 sq.ft.) they got from the $2500 sq.ft. it was valued at!

    Then again, with a rental of $10,000 per month, the new owner is not exactly looking for cashflow either! So that's at least one person with cash who is confident that the real estate / property prices will go up giving them capital growth.


    "A home less than ten feet wide, which has been dubbed New York City's skinniest house, has sold for $2.1 million (£1.3million).

    Number 75½ Bedford Street: one of New York's narrowest, and most photographed, houses

    The red, 9.5 foot wide, 42 foot long brick building in Manhattan's fashionable Greenwich Village neighbourhood was built in 1873. Located at number 75½ Bedford Street, it was built on land which previously had been an alleyway between numbers 75 and 77.

    The interior, unsurprisingly as the house isn't a TARDIS, is even smaller, measuring just 8.5 feet wide.

    The two bedroom, two bathroom home, which went on the market priced at $2.7 million in August last year, was last sold in 2000 for $1.6 million.

    At the time it was listed last August, real estate agent Alex Nicholas admitted: 'Due to the narrowness of the house, I think you have to be very clever in how you decorate.'

    The narrow home has had some famous residents in the past - a plaque on it notes that poet Edna St. Vincent Millay once lived there; so did anthropologist Margaret Mead.

    However, it looks like the new owners might not be living there themselves - the newly-sold building was listed on real estate websites on Wednesday as a rental available for $10,000 a month." - Source: Tom Phillips - www.metro.co.uk

    What comes after Winter?

    Anyone else getting Deja Vu?  The weather was similar this time last year and the chaos the same. The world keeps turning and life must go on.

    Winters come and go, to return again... just as the summers do. So why are so many people surprised or shocked when it happens again?

    So whilst it looks bleak for the councils gritting roads and people who need to go to work, kids are out having fun in the snow and so are some of the adults. Driving isn't safe, so staying in the warmth sounds like a good idea, extending the Christmas holidays.  With a cup of hot chocolate and snuggling up to watch TV / DVD's, read a good book or just spend more time on the internet and facebook.

    Enjoy the weather and time off, as it will be time to go back out soon enough and spring will be around the corner.  If it wasn't for the cold, how would we know to enjoy the sun?

    Bobby :-)

    Taxing time for the Councils this Winter

    The council's running out of grit and it's not the first time. The 2009 grit supplies issue from the Local Government website would be lessons to learn from wouldn't they?  Here is the 2010 briefing on what is happening. 

    As long as your council tax money is going to cover wages and meetings but NOT towards rubbish collections and icy roads, at least you know it's being well spent.

    Did you know it might be possible not to have to pay Council Tax? Yes it's true, if you want to look into it go to www.nocounciltax.com

    Latest on Council Grit Supplies

    West Berkshire council confirmed that it had received an emergency delivery of salt from neighbouring Hampshire hours before it ran out. But it still only had supplies for two or three days. Harrow council, in north London, said it could run out by the end of the week if severe weather continued.

    Durham County Council has halted gritting of minor roads because of "uncertainty" over salt supplies.

    "It is important that everyone understands we are managing very difficult ongoing winter conditions with restricted supplies."

    GRIT supplies in Kirklees could run out today, as more bad weather is forecast for the rest of the week.

    Harrow council in north-west London described the grit supply situation as "pretty outrageous".

    Many councils in Scotland have said they are running low on salt and grit, which has prevented them from treating the icy roads in the longest winter freeze for two decades.

    The Great Rip-off: Tale of the Dead Donkey

    The current banking crisis explained:

    Young Thomas bought a donkey from a farmer for £100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

    The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey died.'

    Thomas replied, 'Well then just give me my money back.' The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I've already spent it.'

    Thomas said, 'OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.' The farmer asked, 'What are you going to do with him?'

    Thomas said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.' The farmer said, 'You can't raffle a dead donkey!'
    Thomas said, 'Sure I can. Watch me.. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'

    A month later, the farmer met up with Thomas and asked, 'What happened with that dead donkey?'

    Thomas said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two pounds a piece and made a profit of £898'

    The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?' Thomas said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two pounds back !'

    Thomas then went to work for Barclays.

    Here this tale would have ended... but it didn't...


    A year later, Thomas (now working for HBOS / Halifax Bank Of Scotland), comes running into the farmer's yard, out of breath and looking frightened.

    "You must help me hide!" cries Thomas.

    The farmer asks, "Why? What's wrong?"

    Thomas explained, "I went all over the village, hiring people to sell raffle tickets for the same dead donkey, and then those people hired other people to go to other villages and sell raffle tickets for the same dead donkey, and now there are thousands of raffles taking place all over the kingdom.
    Millions of people and pension funds bought my raffle tickets, but the donkey started to stink and everybody found out it was dead, so now they want their raffle ticket money back!"

    The farmer suggested, "Just pay back the money, Thomas."

    "I can't!" Thomas moaned. "I spent it all on bonuses for my raffle salespeople, and private jets, and huge mansions, and an opulent lifestyle to which we, in the raffle ticket business, have become accustomed. Not only that, I borrowed against my raffle ticket earnings 35 fold, so now I OWE 35 TIMES the money I actually earned!"

    The farmer thought a moment, then smiled. "Don't worry, Thomas. I know what to do."

    Thomas asked, "What can possibly be done?"

    The farmer answered, "Your raffle operation is the biggest business in all the land. It's too big to fail. The King will bail you out, for the good of all his loyal subjects."

    And with that, Thomas beseeched the King for billions of pounds to create the R.T.R.P. (Raffle Ticket Relief Program) to buy back all the worthless raffle tickets.

    Everybody thought that would be the end of it, but it turns out the King didn't have enough money to bail out the Raffle ticket holders, so he issued official "Raffle Bonds" to borrow money from other lands.

    Everybody thought THAT would be the end of it, except when the rulers of other lands figured out their lent money was being spent on dead donkey raffle tickets, they stopped lending it. So the King decided to just print the money to buy back the dead donkey raffle tickets.

    Everybody thought THAT would be the end of it, until it turns out that printing money causes each individual pound to be worth much less, so prices for goods and services rose enormously throughout the kingdom. The King decided to issue a new paper currency denominated at 1/10th the face value of the old pounds, and forced everyone to exchange their old money for new money so prices would come down to normal again.

    Everybody thought THAT would be the end of it, until the same thing happened with the new currency, so the people rose up and toppled the King with torches and pitchforks, and installed a new ruling government with a new currency backed by gold.

    And THEN they all lived happily ever after.

    The End.

    On this day of your life

    "On this day of your life You should do no 'work' at all.

    The point of your activities throughout the day is not to make a living, but to make a life; not to 'work' but to create joy. If you are doing what you are doing merely to 'pay the bills,' you will have missed the major reason for All Of Life.

    The purpose of life is to know and express 'Who You Are'. If you do other than that during the days and times of your life, you will have not used those days and times in a way that profits your soul. It is soul profit we are after here, not body profit." - Neale Donald Walsch
