Wrack Line Blog "about" and "AD policy" can be found below the picture. What's a "Wrack Line"
What's NEW in the Wrackline blog?
NEW ESSAY: "Guilty until proven innocent" It used to be that we were all "Innocent Until Proven Guilty". In many cases nowadays, it's the other way around.
NEW: "Examples of this blog's styles". This is a sample, with CSS code, of all the "styles" used throughout the Wracklineblog. It's in the "HTML/CSS Goodies" section at the bottom of the site links list on the right.
NEW: "Examples of this blog's tables". This is a sample (with CSS code) of the "tables" used in the Wracklineblog. It's also in the "HTML/CSS Goodies" section at the bottom of the site links list on the right.
UPDATED: "New Home Wish List" (added some pictures), and "Eliminate Muscle Pain" Extensive re-write of the "Got Acute Trigs? Need More Tips". link from this page.
Check out "Tips on using the iPhone Camera" Make use of the Little Yellow Rectangle. Learn how to "stop down" for more dramatic pictures. Lock the focus and exposure. Plus two VERY useful gadgits.
Check out "The Standard Superhero Plot"! It's a spoof on Superhero movies, since every superhero movie has essentially the SAME plot! Look in "Essays".
Check out "Wishlist for New Homes"! I have actually not found a more comprehensive list in my own internet searching.
Updated Weekly: "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. This is also updated weekly (unless, of course, yours truly is busy
fiddling with home improvement or landscaping projects!)

10/9/2019: Turning Food into Energy
The little magazine started an article with the words "Our cell mitochondria are responsible for turning food into energy. . ." I paused, looked out the window, and thought:
I suppose that is what happens when we eat. One of the remarkable things that our physical form does is to turn our food into thought, words, ideas, and other forms of energy.
I look around the room. The electrical parts spread out on the table for my next project were created as a result of concepts from the energy of scientists and inventors in the past. The words that I am writing in this journal have in part come from the cheese, the whole grains, and the spinach that I ate for lunch.
The food I have eaten today and in the past has become the energy of activity, good cheer, excellent health, and indeed the exuberance of life for me.
If this is the case, then it would make sense that I eat the best food I can. The organic fruits and vegetables, the grass-fed milk, and the wholesome grains have produced calm, balance, patience, and peace for me. They have brought about well-being and great depth of feeling.
But what then what would I expect from the products that the Food Industry has produced?
Would I expect peace and calm from the meat of chickens and cows that have known fear and force from birth?
Would I expect good health from the same chickens and cows who are so sick they have to be feed antibiotics every day?
Would I expect to energize that health from vegetables and grains that have been grown so fast they haven't even had time to draw up minerals and nutrients from the soil (which is itself exhausted and overextended)? Can plants whose health has been elicited by chemicals and pesticides confer immunity to me when they haven't needed to provide it for themselves?
If we create energy from food, then maybe we should ask if the food that permeates our supply has the right kind of energy to provide us. And maybe it is that very food which contributes to high incidence of "degenerative" (lacking energy) diseases that affect our society.
Click the player to listen to the author's "Ambient 8", a nice quiet track.
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.
NOTE: Clicking on these Amazon links takes you to the same location that you would get if you searched for and clicked on yourself. The security level is the same, and there is no difference in price. Amazon has an "Associates" package, in which Amazon itself pays a small percentage to the referring web site.
