What's NEW in the Wrackline blog?
NEW: "Wishlist for new homes This is a very comprehensive list of "big" things like a Kitchen Pantry, as well as "little" things like full-length drawer slides for kitchen drawers, or hanging rods in the laundry room, or lights on stairways.
NEW: "Deciphering Light Bulbs" This article shows how to tell what the "equivalent wattage" of a light bulb is, when you have just the bulb. It also explains "color temperature" ("warm white" vs "cool white" vs "daylight").
RECENT: "Gardening Made Easy" shows you how to earn your "green thumb" badge, by simply giving plants the soil they really want.
RECENT: "Removing Lawn Grass" details how to dig up lawn grass, if you want to add a garden bed or just replace grass with something with less maintainence.
RECENT: "Growing Berries" provides details on growing your own strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries.
UPDATED: "Jimmie's Top 250 Ambients" 10 new tracks added. Total is now 467 ambients!
RECENT: "Eliminate muscle pain"! Some new additions to the "Self-Applied Massage" section. You CAN eliminate muscle pain, if you are willing to do 10 - 20 minutes of muscle work each day.
Recent Addition: "The Standard Superhero Plot"! It's a spoof on Superhero movies, since every superhero movie has essentially the SAME plot! Look in "Essays".
NEW: "Entries from Jimmie's Journal." The home
page will feature a quote from my journals, which span from 1975 to the present. It is hoped that these little quotes
may lead to a little extra depth of feeling for you, and that some of them might even lead to a greater understanding
of our relationship to the Universal Consciousness. And also, some of 'em are for just for the sake of humor! There's also
a "Previous Journal Entries" link for past quotes.

12/2003: Christmas Thoughts
This is the season of Christmas beliefs. This is the season of Santa Claus. But do we just believe in Santa Claus, or health, or opulence?
Or do we create these things?
You visited our planet, Spirit. You allowed Yourself to become manifest in time and place and we celebrate this Incarnation every year at this time.
And how did you find this planet of ours? And how did you find our propensity toward violence toward one another? But of course You would understand, being perfect love. You love us despite ourselves – indeed “despite” is a human term.
Perhaps You find it harder to understand why we cannot love each other.
“The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away” Was this really in the Bible? Maybe it should be “The Lord giveth and we taketh away.”

The Wracklineblog started with the "Hwy 101 Beaches" links. These lead to individual pages covering more than 70 beaches from
Astoria, Oregon down to Brookings, Oregon. Each page has beach/park information, usually a picture of the entrance sign,
and one or more scenic pictures taken by the author.
Here's an illustrated sample
However, the Wracklineblog has expanded, and now has photography tips, an exhaustive list of the most moving ambient music, and a growing health/nutrition section, with vegetarian recipes and nutrition information, and various essays, including the newly-added "excerpts from Jimmie's Journals". Some "HTML coding" references and a cool HTML color tool have also been added.
Wrackline "AD Policy":
NO ads! NOTHING that moves! Period.
However some of the sections have links that will allow you to purchase books and/or other items. For example, the Photography Tips section offers links to purchase the cameras/lenses that were used to create all the pictures in the blog. If you have an interest for any of these books or items, purchasing them by way of these links will provide a little extra income for the author, who is retired.
