This was going around on Facebook. I thought it was time to share it here. If only for myself, as a reminder once again. It can all be too too much at times.

Dig a Hole in the Ground
You hear so many rumors sometimes you get confused
But I read it in Time Magazine and I heard it on the news
We'll see dramatic changes in the lifestyle we enjoy
If those megatons of atom bombs are actually employed.
The scenarios are scary, oh, but they don't worry me
Since I received a pamphlet from a federal agency
It's got diagrams and checklists and I read it front to back
And it told me what to do in case of nuclear attack: Just
CHORUS:Dig a hole in the ground, and climb right on down Lay some boards on top of you and sprinkle dirt around You won't have to be dead if you only plan ahead You'll be glad you kept a shovel on hand!
Now you can't just go picking any old place to dig your hole
Got to take a ride to the countryside to the town
where you are told If your plates are odd-numbered please don't panic, you'll be fine
Just politely let those even-numbered cars go first in line
If you don't have a car, just hail a cab or ride your bike
You can climb aboard the Amtrak train, sit back, and enjoy the sights
You and thousands of your city friends will be welcomed cordially
By townfolk who will show you country hospitality--then
We're sure to give you notice up to seven days before
But it's wise to recognize the warning signs of nuclear war
If the temperature is rising in a flash of blinding light
Grab your toothbrush and a flashlight and shut the windows tight
If the wind is blowing wicked and there's buildings in the air
Blisters on you body, fire in your hair
If the tupperware is melting and your dinner plans are wrecked
Stay calm, it's time to put this foolproof plan into effect: Just
I heard Fred Small play this song in a little venue in Middlebury, Vermont back in 1987. Now everytime I hear the word Nuclear this song comes back to mind....

and is a call to plant Sunflowers Everywhere and especially on
May 1st, 2011.
City places where mowers don't roam. Places in the country where you think they will thrive. They are good for so many things.
I even spelled guerrilla wrong and you can still click on it!

On my way back from a trip to Sharon Woods Metro Park today I stopped by the Riffe Gallery (right across from the Statehouse) to do another whirlwind tour while waiting for my limo(bus) to arrive. If you are in Columbus , go to the Riffe before April 17th just to see these two portraits(top). Encaustic painting collages of one Navajo woman and one African American woman. Nice little exhibits are always in this jewel of a downtown Gallery.
