AT THE MARKET TODAY - A SUNDAY EXTRA: OF CABBAGES AND THINGS...


I am reminded of the movie, BABETTE'S FEAST - a woman flees from the French civil war and lands in a small seacoast village in Denmark.  The villagers' austere existence is changed by her arrival to its lonely shores.  An evocative take on how a community is brainwashed into thinking that austerity is the way to live.  They needed a change and they got it - deliciously!

SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY - TODAY'S MYSTERY SHADOW - WELL, PERHAPS NOT FOR LONG...

THE CLUE IS IN THE CAPTION...



In the 19th-century they used to be called "freedom machines" by feminists which, in turn, led to a "shocking" movement for wearing bloomers for bicycling,  thereby liberating women from wearing corsets and ankle-length skirts.

SKY WATCH FRIDAY - A SUNSET REFLECTION OCCUPIES - LIKE MONSTER SUNSPOT ACTIVITY SEEN ON THE SUN ITSELF...




Blinded by the dazzle of this reflected sunset (I couldn't look at it),  the result reminded me of news five days ago of 'monstrous' sun spot activity going on up there.  You can read about it  HERE!

SKY WATCH FRIDAY - OCCUPY WALL STREETERS ARE LOOKING FOR WINTER RESIDENCES....





It is said that they have received enough donations to help them through this winter, much to the frustration of certain officials who would like to see them gone!


(Go here for New York Times Op Ed Columnist Paul Krugman's take on press reports that OWS is responsible for violent protesting in some places).

And in Atlanta the excuse for police intervention is that it is to protect the protesters....

REBELLION MONDAY - OCCUPY WALL STREET... THE REBELLION HAS STARTED EVERYWHERE, IT IS MEANINGFUL...

A visit to Zuccotti Park in Wall Street yesterday with friend Mary Westring revealed, not rag-tag groupies smoking pot, but industrious activists of all shapes and sizes making signs, providing materials to make signs.  I saw guys take off their t-shirts to get an OCCUPY WALL STREET sign silkscreened on the spot!  There were white t-shirts available for those who preferred to let it dry!



Well organized, well publicized in several cities, a professionally printed newspaper to be distributed today



There is a kitchen receiving donations of food for the sleepovers (no mattresses allowed, just tarps to sleep under) and a list of activities for the day...




THINK ABOUT IT,  IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY!   LEAVE A COMMENT!
