I'm going to try to start blogging. At first I am just writing stream of conciousness and nonsense to get my technical skills up. Here's the first entry.

Well, that doesn't sound too hard!

Do five simple things a day to stay sane, say scientists - Times Online

5 Steps to happiness

1. Connect: Developing relationships with family, friends, colleagues and neighbours will enrich your life and bring you support.
2. Be active: Sports, hobbies such as gardening or dancing, or just a daily stroll will make you feel good and maintain mobility and fitness
3. Be curious: Noting the beauty of everyday moments as well as the unusual and reflecting on them helps you to appreciate what matters to you
4. Learn: Fixing a bike, learning an instrument, cooking – the challenge and satisfaction brings fun and confidence
5. Give: Helping friends and strangers links your happiness to a wider community and is very rewarding

How Green are they really?

Is it possible that many or some of the people who preach "green" so aggressively as a value - and in fact a whole religion/ethical system, actually themselves have very little connection to nature - so that in fact "green" the "religion" is actually a substitute for nature because they don't have an opportunity to get out of the city and, for example, look at the stars, or perhaps because they are afraid of nature because they feel inadequate to be in it because they can't control it or for some other reason?
