Here kitty kitty

I am surrounded by cats, I have always loved them and they have always kept me sane (in as much as I can say I am sane!). Here is the 411 on the Cat as your animal totem.

 

 

“Domestic felines are all about communication and their messages almost always have to do with your ability to communicate with those around you or with the spirit and astral realms. The mystery of the cat and its secretive ways has always been intriguing. Many believe that these slinky creatures are in constant communication with the spirit world and are the bridge between the realm of the unseen and the seen. Most certainly when the cat comes into your life – someone or something is trying to tell you something. Listen carefully! Trust your intuition.

 

Alternatively, this feline can also be letting you know that you have the power and magic to create anything you want out of your life right now. All you need to do is believe in yourself and trust that you have all the tools and skills necessary to accomplish what you desire in life. Don’t hesitate! The time to focus on your dreams is NOW!

 

 

People with Cat as their totem are always extremely psychic and creative people. Often they are independent, unpredictable and more often than not highly astute in all situations. There is always a sense of mystery that surrounds them. They are also highly selective in choosing their friends and will rarely cave to peer pressure. They choose their own way in life but have to be careful not to become too reclusive.”

Join our Blog Jog Day!

I’ve noticed that our membership has dropped off sharply in the last few days, which made me remember a fun membership drive that I participated in a few years back.

 

 

It’s called “The Blog Jog” and it works like this: email your blog’s website address to me at rosefirewalker@aol.com. I’ll make a master list of all our blogs and post them on a thread for our Blog Jog day. By signing up to be on this list you will agree to visit each blog on Blog Jog Day and leave a short greeting on each blog.

 

 

It’s fun and it doesn’t take that much time. We’ll get a chance to see a lot of new and interesting writing from the other members here, and we’ll also get an intense amount of traffic to our own blogs.

You don’t have to subscribe to any of the blogs if you don’t want to, but you will be exposed to new authors, writers, and fellow networkers. It’ll be a blast and it’s only for the one day. Try it, try it, I say!!

You Pick Two

I chose today’s word, not because it is exotic or rare, but because it has two meanings that are wildly different from each other. I find that fascinating!

Solvent is both a noun and an adjective: As a noun, it means: 1. something that dissolves another thing, and 2. something that solves a problem.

 

 

As an adjective, it means: 1. able to pay one’s debts, and 2. able to dissolve another substance.

ETYMOLOGY: From Latin solvere (to loosen, to dissolve, to pay). Ultimately from the Indo-European root pleu- (to flow), that is also the source of flow, float, flit, fly, flutter, pulmonary, pneumonic, pluvial, fluvial, effluvium, fletcher, and plutocracy. Earliest documented use: 1653.

Don’t be fooled by an old fool…

Solar power is big business!

In an article from PV TECH, I read that “The route to decarbonisation in the energy sector will create benefits of US$10 trillion every year by 2050, while requiring only US$1.8 trillion to implement, according to a new joint report from the International Energy Agency (IAE) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

 

 

 

In their first ever collaboration, IEA and IRENA found that a total of 6 million jobs would be created, even when accounting for jobs lost in other industries.

 

 

Further jobs will also be created in the energy efficiency sector. The report stressed that efforts on the transition need to be stepped up urgently to stay in line with the targets of the Paris Agreement.

 

 

IRENA director-general Adnan Z. Amin, said: “Critically, the economic case for the energy transition has never been stronger. Today around the world, new renewable power plants are being built that will generate electricity for less cost than fossil-fuel power plants. And through 2050, the decarbonisation can fuel sustainable economic growth and create more new jobs in renewables.”
