Shake off such ugliness;
Compliance is in cleanliness.

Home! At last! We left at sundown. A part came off the car and knocked off four fan blades. I drove with intense concentration. The car never over-heated but groaned a lot due to the fan being so off balance. I came home to find my first issue of Mother Earth News in the mailbox. I made all the necessary phone calls letting everyone know that we got home safely and then took a very very long bath. I will now snuggle up to sleeping Rachel and read Mother Earth.

I was heading out of town after picking up Rachel, some other kids and parents up from a fancy school for children. We saw great snow-capped mountains on the horizon that were almost terrifying. I mentioned, in my own amazement, that I had never noticed them before.

As populations grow and spread, these natural phenomena will become potentially even more destructive.1
