Ghana - closing the Adomi bridge

Posted by blackstarlions on September 21, 2013 at 8:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Getting to us will now be even more of an adventure. Going to market at Akosombo will be by ferry as will any trips into Atimpoku, Accra and any place east of the Volta river. Our travels may take a bit longer but this is all in good fun.

We were first told the bridge would close June of this year, 2013. The date then changed to July, then to August, then to December and then the new year. The last estimated date we have heard is February, ...

Life Thoughts

Firstly, have to give thanks for the harvest. We have eaten fresh green beans which are unlike any market bought bean I have ever eaten. Tender and tasty. Harvesting lots of tomatoes too, so getting ready for some sun drying. It's amazing how 'small' the amount of tomatoes is after drying but wow is it worth the effort.

GIVE THANKS ALWAYS

While listening to Joy FM, I am amaze...

The New Revolution - Growing Your Own Food

Posted by blackstarlions on April 27, 2013 at 8:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Sometime this week I either read or was told that one of the most revolutionary things you could do was to grow your own food!

Not only is growing food akin to doing hatha yoga but it makes you that much more independent. It is one of the highest recommended activities for menopausal women (and should be men too). It feels sooooo good to be out in the fresh air and feel the sun on our skin (those wit...

Scientifically engineered seeds and African farmers

This week the BBC has been hosting a science fair in Kampala Uganda and the subjects have been quite fascinating. I was eager to listen to the news on the agriculture fair and so was quite amazed Wednesday when Focus on Africa had this to report:

Farmers are complaining about the seeds that they have been saving for generations. They no longer produce the amounts that they have been used to. While my first thought would be to use modalities to improve soil quality, the scientists are e...

Faith and Renewal or Lockheed Martin - from war mongers to water filtration agents

Posted by blackstarlions on March 19, 2013 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Water is life. There's no doubt about it. We could live for weeks without food but how long would we last without a drop of water. After going for three months without rain and much despair for the life that looked like it was dying, we finally had our treat. The bushes at the front of our site looked brown and dead. We were sure we would have to yank them out and start replanting. Lo and behold, they are sprouting forth with new, light green life. T
