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: "Compounding Your Own" Psoriasis sufferers: if you have a prescription for Coal Tar ("LCD") ointment, and are tired of searching for pharmacies who do "compounding", do it yourself! I explain how.
NEW Tracks: "Jimmie's Top 250 Ambients" renamed to "Jimmie's Top 500 Ambients", since there are now 533 tracks listed! 29 new tracks have been added.
UPDATE: "Vertigo Notes" Added a "quick version" of the balance exercises, and other changes.
Extensive UPDATE: "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.
RECENT: "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.
RECENT: "Best Tip for Travel Packing" Have trouble remembering what to pack for your travels? Here's a boss tip: Take a Picture!
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".
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.

From the journal entry on 2/5/2019: Additional note on "You don't have a body":
Excerpt from Richer Living (another Ernest Holmes book), the Feb 3 entry:
"We are not under the law of material problems and world beliefs. We are under the law of the Spirit, which maintains us in freedom and in peace."
And the feb 4 entry:
"Those who live without spiritual vision and understanding are forever trying to solve their problems by manipulating (with) their human minds and exerting their human wills. . . The recognition of Spirit as Cause and as the creative Power of this world brings victory to the soul. It does this because all problems begin and end within the individual’s own consciousness. As we realize that Spirit’s Mind is in us as the basis of our individual Consciousness, we begin to solve our problems at their origin, which is within ourselves."
That is, if we do not say we "have" a material body, or that we are a "spirit" or "soul" imprisoned in a
material body, we can then begin to use our Consciousness to control the cells of our existence.
"consciousness" vs "Consciousness":
"consciousness" with a little "c" is how we refer to our daily self-awareness. It is usually what we think of as separating us human big shots from what we call non-aware things like trees, animals, and the like. It is also the activity of our "mind" when we worry about sickness, failure, or lack of monetary supply.
But "Consciousness" with a big "C" is that ability that we have as participants in the Universal Consciousness. With this Consciousness we speak the words of health, success, supply with the same authority that the Timeless Formless One has when It spoke the Words of Creation (bearing in mind that our language is often flawed: we really don't say the Great Spirit "spoke" the Creative Words at some time in the distant past - the "Big Bang" perhaps - but rather that the Great Spirit speaks the Words of Creation.)

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.
