Winder:  "Plants can communicate about their environment through hormones that they release. With more cuttings in the same jar, the concentration of auxins will be higher promoting more and faster root growth."

I have heard of putting a willow cutting in with other less legal cuttings to release rooting hormones, but haven't tried it with Salvia - have you heard of this?  So far salvia has rooted so easily for me, I haven't seen much need.

Yea, the lower cut would be better.  The plant looked bigger to me in the photo than it appearantly is.

I have always taken the lower leaves off the plant (the one that will be underwater), but if winder says to leave them, thats probably best.

"Some advise against more than 1 cutting per jar, but with 8 per jar, I am more succesful. "

I have not noticed much difference between one cutting and many.  But since you only have one plant right now, I would take the one cutting soon.

I would cut it right where you have it tied in the bottom photo.  Then cut the two leaves off right above it.  Then cut the larger leaf off above that.  The volume of water you mention is fine.  If you use an aquarium air stone, it does not need to be covered.   I would not let it have any direct sun light, indirect light only.  Let it have 18 hours (or more) of light a day.  If you need to, place a florescent light above it, 12 inches (30 cm) or so above it.

Make sense - if not I will draw a picture tomorrow.

Operator eh?  Sounds interesting.  I heard a strange song the other day...then I figured out I was just tripping and the phone was off the hook. I believe the song is called Busy Signal.

It's kind of a freaky tune.

I would if that was my only plant.  It looks big enough.

Place the cutting in cup of water and use and aquarium air stone for best results.

The Cave / A Brief History of Skateboarding

Your Guide to Skateboarding.

Skateboarding was first started in the 1950s, when all across the world children's got the idea of tryi'g to surf the streets. No One really knows who made the first board -- unless you got one dated -- instead, it seems that several people came up with similar ideas at the same time.

Several people have claimed to have invented the skateboard first, but nothing can be proved (see above), and skateboarding remains a strange spontaneous creation.

---------------------------------

Its about as strange as the "spontaneous creation" of a cream separator  - Mr. Eli.

But i have both . . . With provenance abundance.  


Maybe if'n you're lucky . . .  I'll take you for a ride. . .  or churn you some butter . . . your choice.

JRL - I wouldn't judge the community on one guy in the park.  Just like I wouldnt judge it by chat.  In large gatherings, I have really been amazed at the diversity of people getting along.  

LW - This girl I met at one of stork's shows (it always seems to happen just when you think you're safe!), had a young son (10 years old) that once showed me how to make a majik wand - it was very strange - but thats another story - she was more out there than all of us put together - a self-professed psychic and a known prostitute - and her poor kid - man was he picked on at school - he liked me though and he believed it was real - so what can I say?  Glad you didn't freak out.  I about did.  Cuzz as everyone knows - If I had my way, I'd tear this old build'in down!  It would only take one good push in the right direction, if you understand architecture.

I did it, I told the judge and backed it up in writing, so as there wouldn't be any misunderstandings - "For truly, your house is built upon a faulty foundation. The corner stone of your hall has not been squared, leveled nor laid plumb. As even a school boy knows, a house built upon a weak foundation will fall, no matter the craftsmanship used in the construction of its walls."

He was a bit shocked - I don't think he wasn't used to people speaking to him like this - or he wasn't used to people speaking in analogies even a 33rd degree mason could understand.  Anyway - they haven't sent the goon squad after me yet!  Stay tuned.  If I turn up missing, you know where to start looking PV, or inside the cornerstone of the next great public building.

Anyway - I'd say next time it happens, don't worry about it.  Maybe a few heads need to be turned into tails.

------------------

For I was born free and have never sworn allegiance to any man - let alone "his worshipful master"      * I have no secrets *  My life is a book.


The great "secret" - really it is that simple.

You don't eat a good possum all at once!

But in regard to the subject at hand:
I've though it curious before to see what appear to be orthodox jews sitting quietly and praying at dead shows.  No one bothered them and in fact they seemed welcomed.

Things weren't so peaceful here.  A group wearing green shirts with peace signs on them joined the "public" St. Patricks day parade and were forceable removed by the cops.  Said the were unlawfully gathering.  Apperantly the people without peace signs were gathering legally.

I appreciate the reports and keep them coming, but know for sure; man's law is of no consequence.  The Truth will be known!  It is in The Word!

The World / Warmonger offers morality lecture
« on: March 15, 2007, 01:43:20 PM »
Of all the problems in the military right now, lack of recruitment goals, fighting an immoral, illegal war, talk of a draft, etc. and they are dismissing people for being gay.  What a sorry state of affairs.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The top U.S. military officer, Gen. Peter Pace, said Tuesday he should have focused more on military policy and less on his own opinion when he told a newspaper homosexual acts are immoral.

His remarks drew opposition from some lawmakers and an advocacy group.

Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Chicago Tribune on Monday that he supports the "don't ask, don't tell" policy banning openly gay people from serving in the U.S. armed forces.

"In expressing my support for the current policy, I also offered some personal opinions about moral conduct," Pace said in a statement. "I should have focused more on my support of the policy and less on my personal moral views." (Watch viewers weigh in on Pace's comments )

Earlier Tuesday, senior staff members for Pace said the general had no plans to apologize for his comments, which included comparisons between homosexuality and adultery -- behavior that he said is prosecuted in the military.

"My upbringing is such that I believe that there are certain things, certain types of conduct that are immoral," Pace told the Tribune. "I believe that military members who sleep with other military members' wives are immoral in their conduct."

Pace also told the paper, "I believe that homosexual acts between individuals are immoral, and that we should not condone immoral acts.

"So the 'don't ask, don't tell' [policy] allows an individual to serve the country ... if we know about immoral acts, regardless of committed by who, then we have a responsibility.

"I do not believe that the armed forces are well served by saying through our policies that it's OK to be immoral in any way, not just with regards to homosexual acts," the Joint Chiefs chairman said.

"So from that standpoint, saying that gays should serve openly in the military to me says that we, by policy, would be condoning what I believe is immoral activity," he added.

Lawmakers take issue with Pace
Sen. John Warner of Virginia -- the ranking Republican on the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee -- expressed his opposition to Pace's opinion.

According to Warner aide John Ullyot, the senator said, "I strongly disagree with the chairman's views that homosexuality is immoral."

Democratic Rep. Marty Meehan of Massachusetts, author of a Military Readiness Enhancement Act that would repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, said Tuesday that Pace should recognize the harmful effect the ban is having on the military.

"Gen. Pace's statements aren't in line with either the majority of the public or the military," Meehan said in a statement. "He needs to recognize that support for overturning 'don't ask, don't tell' is strong and growing."

Also, Defense Secretary Robert Gates sidestepped a question Tuesday about his view of the policy.

"I think personal opinion really doesn't have a place here," he said in an interview on the Pentagon Channel. "What's important is that we have a law, a statute that governs 'don't ask, don't tell.'

"That's the policy of this department, and it's my responsibility to execute that policy as effectively as we can. As long as the law is what it is, that's what we'll do," Gates added.

Advocacy group: General should apologize
The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, a nonprofit group that represents military personnel affected by the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, demanded Tuesday that Pace apologize for his remarks.

"Gen. Pace's comments are outrageous, insensitive and disrespectful to the 65,000 lesbian and gay troops now serving in our armed forces," said C. Dixon Osburn, the group's executive director. "Our men and women in uniform make tremendous sacrifices for our country, and deserve Gen. Pace's praise, not his condemnation."

The statement added, "It is inappropriate for the chairman to condemn those who serve our country because of his own personal bias. He should immediately apologize for his remarks."

Asked if Pace would apologize, his senior staff members said the general stands by his statements as an expression of his personal opinion, and he has no intention of apologizing.

President Clinton signed the "don't ask, don't tell" policy into law in 1994. The military has supported the policy, citing its belief that homosexuality is detrimental to good order and discipline in the armed forces.
