Service, Robert

But I reflect - what does it matter?
On the brain of scholar, sot and swine;
(on his replete and arid mine)
with equal zest the worm doth dine.

Seneca

We are born unequal, we die equal. 

.... (but don't let the modern human rights activists or modern culture and government in on that fact)

We are all returned, the question is, in which order?

(Demetrius quoted by Seneca) The utterances of the unenlightened are as noises emanating from the belly. It does not mater whether they come from above or lower.

Seneca

Life we receive is not short but we make it so. We are not ill provided but use what we have wastefully.

Enough

Multi-Chem / Halliburton

Wednesday evening, we were at the public information meeting for  Multi-Chem / Halliburton - Nisku Blend Facility.

After thinking about the presentation, the attitude of Multi-Chem / Halliburton is similar to that of Monsanto. Your life quality is not my concern. Anything that leaves our plant will meet Environment regulations. We will generally meet that, and anything less that that is not our concern. You adjacent land owners are just not our concern.

Much of the regulations can be meet by blowing more air through the monitor. Dilution with clean air. All else is not Multi-Chem / Halliburton concern.

There attitude seems to be "we have complied with the regulations, it is not our concern. " or "If anything go's wrong, whatever fault was committed is not our concern, we are not responsible" This may clear their legal responsible, but what about moral responsibility?   

Putting a chemical plant within a populated area is just not moral, even if it is legal.

More mis picks

 Blue eyed grass
 butterfly on thistle, Brasseau dam
 Frosty Mountain Ash
Wood Pecker. The big pecker wood kept moving, and would not hold his head still.
 Flower,
 One of the lily family, wild, high country of BC.
 Crab apple, from front driveway, flowers last about 1 day.
N. Saskatchewan, at Devon. Forty years ago, I harvested Gold eye trout from this very spot, and fried they just to the left of here. Onions, butter, cast iron pan, over wood fire. The concrete bridge was not there then, only that old truss thing, one step up from a Bailey.

What to do with

I have thousands of images of no significance. Note the whiteish arachnoid hiding in the shade.

What am I to do with them? Where does digital trash go? Just as where does light go when we turn the source off.
Can you spot troll hill?
