I drink, therefore I am.

Dodging coffins lately, and I should like to say I don't like it. F
our near-death experiences. Hosptalizatons.;one is using up his nine lives! Pesistent bleeding from the rectal area. Says the Newfie, "Rectum? Just about killed him." Doc says it's my drinking. Well, while I thought to drinking was to facilitate my mental health the doctor says it has wrecked my physical health. A longtime fan of Honore' de Balzac, I am now at least a character of that master's old novel about guys drinking themselves to death. This was not the plan. The plan was to use my life, my as a theme park, or at least a Marineland where I could offer people a sealbottom. Shee-it. You mean there is an end to the party? I have been a reader of Dylan Thomas for years. I refuse to go gently into that dark night. At least, not without a drink.

I cam home Friday and stopped and got a 24 ounce beer. I knew I had more in the fridge. I drank 90 percent of it but when I got home, I just put it down and that was it. I don't know why the urge to really drink is gone from me now. I'm glad, though.

Old man have you ever gone any where gently? Personally I doubt it is in your nature to not always rage in your own sophisticate way.

Charles,

When younger I thought it was the comic books that dunnit to me, but I think it was The Royal Canadian Air Force. Man, did we learn to fly.

Hi folks,

Thought I'd first let you know about an event coming up Sept. 26 in PEI. Green Island Getaways, an Island eco-tourism attraction featured in my Eco-Innovators book, is hosting an open house and I'm the keynote speaker type person. It runs 5-8 pm, with my bit at 6 pm, at 1132 Rattenbury Road, North Granville, Prince Edward Island. Please let your PEI people know. More details on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/309132195852093/.

Also, I have a new column up on why energy conservation is the most cost effective way to save the climate: http://www.thecoast.ca/halifax/sustainable-city/Content?category=957826.

Lastly, with 42 days left in our crowd-sourcing campaign to make a series of short documentaries on inspiring eco-innovators, well we've got a long ways to go to approach our target. I'm a good grant writer but I must admit asking "the crowd" for money is awkward, so I'll just say any help you can give spreading the word is much appreciated. We've got some nice new perks up there, like signed copies of everything I ever wrote including my grade 1 journal. See http://www.indiegogo.com/thegreengourmet.

Thanks and happy September.

Chris

What doesn't kill you will only kill you slowly.

Gently, no. Rage is more fun.
