I can't wait until everyone in the world is rational, or until just enough are rational to make a difference.

A simpler definition would be "extreme abundance".

I like the closing phrase of the poster posted by reinsallas: "Without Cyclones or Buzzards". Actually, there were (and still are a few) California Condors in California, which, along with vultures, hawks and other raptors, could broadly be considered "buzzards" in the parlance of midwestern US farmers. But at least most of California does not experience "Blizzards"!

By the way, I highly recommend www.cornucopia.org as an information resource regarding what's happening to our "abundant" food supply these days.

I see that the l and i are to close so it seems to read buzzards Think

I thought it was a basket.

We ARE spirtual beings having a human experience.(T.deChardin)***There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

Thanks for the Albert Einstein quote. I have heard it but had not thought of it in a long time.

If the horn of plenty depicted above were inverted and a hole drilled in the pointed end, with a little work we would have the makings of an opulent smoothie.

Miners of the Gold Rush preceded farmers of the Land Rush the poster encourages.
