SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is rampant and sad we are. March 2014 was a sad month for so many people around the world. March started out and continued with ungodly weather conditions. The grip of winter refused to release as much of an inch for most of the country. 24 hour cable newscasts had plenty of material with weather related stories.
What some called the Russian-Crisis followed. Some were not aware of the little chunk of land belonging to the Ukraine until the what some consider the “invasion” of Crimea.
Some of us have been following …with excitement the 2012 find of what is said to be the oldest pyramids on the planet. It is also the location of some major lay lines. Most of the population are ethnic Russians, the rest is Tartar and other small groups so it was not surprising when the votes were tallied ….. most Tatars and others abstained from voting all together…. that it appeared it was decided to once again join Russia. In many instances in all countries many of the population do not agree with the way of the government.
I have never been to Disneyland or the Grand Canyon. I have been to a Traveling Circus and Canyon DeChelly. Sometimes our choices… due to economics or ability… are chosen by us according to our circumstances. For some of us Immigrant Baby boomers living in the USA it is easier to understand the reasons. If one has EVER lived under Russian Occupation. Like new Americans having left Europe in the 50’s,60’s and some up to the time the Berlin Wall fell I would assume many Ukrainians choose the closest thing to what circumstances allowed. Some of us remember Russian soldiers, ALWAYS in groups of 4-5 never smiling with hands on their sidearms like they were part of their body.
Just about the time Crimea and Sarah Palin’s old election clips: “I can see Russia from my house” took up almost all the news, our interest shifted to the tragedy with Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, with 239 people on board, which went missing after taking off from Kuala Lumpur on March 8th. On March 9th, I was asked to see if I could help locate the plane. I have a very high accuracy rate in locating just about anything or anyone. I was unable to find the plane at that time, nor at any time since then. I was given permission to include this in my story line. I will get back to this subject at a later time, I assume it is somewhat painful for the relatives of the passengers at present. It is also important this story will be recorded historically correct, due to the unusual nature of the event.
I have issues with altitudes over 32,000 feet or 975,36 meters. I am unable to comprehend what 45,000 feet or 13,716 meters would feel like. I wonder if any of the passengers on the plane knew just how intensely everyone would be looking for them. On board were 12 crew members. There were 227 passengers, including 153 Chinese and 38 Malaysians, according to the manifest. Seven were children. Other passengers came from Iran, the US, Canada, Indonesia, Australia, India, France, New Zealand, Ukraine, Russia, Taiwan and the Netherlands. This would explain why so many countries are looking for the wreckage.
A KOMO news helicopter crashed, we lost the pilot and a camera man. When someone is in your living room over a long period of time, it is easy to feel like local TV personnel is a friend and so familiar.
Dr. Roger Leir, Podiatrist and Researcher of Alien Implants died and we will miss him greatly, he was a very important person to some of us.
The next big blow arrived in form of a mud slide in Washington State. Here is a before and after picture to show the magnitude of this disaster. To date 26 people have been declared dead, 90 missing and 35 unaccounted for. The little town of OSO, WA has suffered a great loss. A small earthquake a few days earlier may have contributed to the disaster.
I am not sure who the credit for this picture goes to, it was in all publications.
I have been on the air since 1998. Since then I have, on many occasions, talked to my viewers about the ignorance of humans versus nature. I have taken the viewers on road trips and followed the building of whole communities on unbelievably unsafe ground. Washington State experiences Earthquakes, Floods and has several Volcanoes. Building permits are issued in very unsafe places and I have often talked about how insane it appears to me to rebuild in places one KNOWS reoccurring disasters happen. My house fell in a hole during the 2001 Nisqually Quake. I vacated, within a few months someone else lived over the hole and I would hope the new occupants of the property were notified as to what happened before the hole was filled. Either way, they did not seem to mind and the next earthquake will remind them, this I KNOW. This is a picture of Orting. It lays at the feet of Mt. Rainier.
There is no way this town will be able to get away from the furious Volcano when it rears his head.
The distance from Mt Rainier to the Nisqually Reservation is 58.8 miles. Any time there is a problem on Mt Rainier, a Lahar….. a type of mudflow or debris flow composed of a slurry of pyroclastic material, rocky debris, and water…. Lahar warnings are being issued and the 150,000 people effected have 20 minutes to clear the area. This also applies to the Nisqually Indian Reservation. 20 minutes! With traffic and traveling distance I would think that is impossible. WHY are people living in areas which are so vulnerable to nature’s moods.
My heart goes out to the people of OSO and I wish they had been discouraged to reoccupied the land after the last Mud Slide. That’s right…. this was fourth.
The people of the Philippines are still struggling with the rebuilding of their lives from the Typhoon. It was very emotional for me to see the outpouring of sympathy and well wishes they sent to us. THANK YOU!
Houston Ship Channel Oil Spill…accident caused economic damage to a major artery of transport…. much as the Panama Canal would.
South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia was the host to a very special visitor. A 1992 Dodge Viper.
“They’ve ordered the destruction of their entire educational Viper fleet.” The car was never meant to be driven in the open public, and two of them somehow got out and into accidents, costing Chrysler’s parent company millions of dollars.
It is not important as to how big or famous we aim. It counts what we accomplish. We are all SAD at this time. What a month it was! Spring is coming, it always does. Healing will begin, it always does. Will we as people get any smarter? I doubt it. A new very potent, rather dangerous pain pill has been approved by the FDA. They found CHILDREN to have high cholesterol, there will be a pill for that and while they are at it to pillify us all, maybe they can…. hopefully in a timely fashion…. develop one for STUPID and a vaccine to protect us against NATURE.
Love and Light,
Here is a visit to Washington States famous volcano Mount Rainier
