"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

  1. We have a strange channel on the satellite tv system and it shows documentaries like this. I am pretty sure this was on it last week.

  2. Terrifying and inspiring all at once.
    Every time I go to the beach, I do a two minute beach clean. It's literally a drop in the ocean, but it might make a difference to the one sea creature that escapes entanglement or ingestion that day.

    1. Aurora - Welcome - and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.

      Aurora, good for you! Too often we think that litter is someone else's problem, but if every one of the 7 billion-odd people on this planet took the time to spend just two minutes picking up litter, we surely wouldn't have a problem with it getting into our oceans. Every little bit helps... :)

  4. Last week, a whale of 2.5 mtrs washed ashore a Norwegian Island. The animal lost so much weight and was in so much pain, that decided to help this animal out of his misery. When they did an autopsy afterwards, they found over more than 30 plastic bags in its stomach. The biggest piece of plastic was 2.5 mtrs. big. This was the reason the animal was in so much suffering.
    This news was published in the Dutch newspapers last week. It is really heartbreaking and f* unbelievable that we treat our beautifull planet and all her inhabitants like this.

  5. Thanks for the share. This is the worst video I've seen about plastic in the oceans, and my wife and I have watched several.

    1. Marlin - Meaning the worst produced video, or that the detail / finding is horrific? Hopefully, you're agreeing that we have a massive plastic pollution on this planet...

    2. Sorry..should have been more specific. Most horrific.
      We've watched several that have shown how bad the oceans have been polluted, but none this bad.

    3. Marlin - Teasing you 😉 - I know you're as concerned about this planet and it's pollution as I am.

Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day and removes the "loneliness' of sitting at my screen blogging supposedly to myself ;)
