Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
staying in bed is about the most ecological thing you can do, anyway.

exhaustion as indicator of morale....

i'm knackered from overextending myself for days now, really needed a 'duvet day', then my partner called me to rescue her from a viper that was literally coiled outside her front door...

soooo, i hauled ass down there with a pitchfork and an air rifle, took a shot at it and scared it into the house!

where it hid under some boxes.

in no mood to try to follow and kill it, i settled for getting s.o. out to safety....

now i have to drive to meet an environmentalist recently moved here from england, and together we're going to check out a demo project near lake trasimeno where they have a fully eco house, grey water, windmill, the works, no-one lives there (!!!), but they have education sessions.

it's called panta rei, and is in passignano.

it's really hot, a bit overcast, and certainly will be a muggy experience.

got my snake boots on, and after we'll go hike a piece of land my brother is into buying.

as he does reconstructions of old houses, i want him to meet the environmentalist, to maybe get him some consulting work, seeing as it's getting 'di moda' to get all eeko-like, network, network, it's the last, only, and greatest hope.

and watch whom you're pissing off who could be lurking in the bushes...lol...the whole damn family of predators and sneaky movers.

de, sounds like you bit off a bigger bite of the apple of knowledge than you can digest right now....

retire and ruminate, when all else fails, BLOG!
