Fall in the Heartland

MARCIA POWELL -- Blog article (#9) – October 30, 2012

Picking up from my last blog of August 12th, (to read earlier blog articles, go to, I/we survived the drought. True, some seeds I planted never came up—I think because I didn't water them enough early on. But the alfalfa being grown on my 20 acres survived and was harvestable. I do continue to see a lot of chemtrails in the sky and continue to believe that the weather is being “geo-engineered.” Just an hour ago I read an email saying that Hurricane Sandy was geo-engineered (HAARP) and is part of the power games going on. Eegads! I just take in the data and put it in my data banks for further evaluation—and continue to prepare for anything.

When I was 15, a fellow named Henry Monteith told me to read “Autobiography of a Yogi,” which started (continued) me on my spiritual search. He also showed my family pictures of the UFO that crashed at Roswell. He left town and we did not re-connect until a month ago (55 years)! He said he was thinking about me 3 days before I got the urge to look him up and found him via the internet. He's a PhD physicist and still very into helping to wake up mankind. He found his soulmate at age 60 and has written a book about cosmological soulmates. Interesting reading.

Attended the opening event of a community garden, and last Saturday the kickoff event for the new local currency. There's a lot of people in this town doing very good work which aligns with my goal to help make Champaign County a sustainable community. 

The Food and Water Watch organization has sent a paid organizer to this city to start the campaign to label GMO foods in Illinois. Yea! I hope Prop 37 passes in California, as that will help us with our campaign.

Probably like many of you, I was appalled at what the GOP did to Ron Paul at the GOP Convention in Tampa. It resulted in my decision to help grow the Libertarian party. Between now and Nov. 6th I will continue to campaign for Rob Meister in the hopes of getting him elected to the Illinois State Assembly. As mentioned in my last blog, the citizens of Illinois need to break up the power of the House Speaker, Mike Madigan. There is more and more press (e.g. Chicago Tribune) about this, which gives me hope.

One way the local symphony orchestra raises money is to have “Taste of Elegance” parties at beautiful homes. I've been to a couple—always good for meeting new and interesting people. Have been to some great concerts. One featured the orchestra, a big chorus, and 7 great soloists singing Leonard Bernstein's “Make Our Garden Grow” (listen to it on YouTube). Omigod! I almost sobbed out loud! Had to dash home and write up the experience.

Am taking the Hubbard Dianetics Course so as to know how to deliver Dianetic auditing as done when the book first came out in 1950. Delivered my first session a few days ago! I continue to help the local Mission.

After years of thinking about it, I finally decided to exercise my 2nd amendment rights, so have purchased a revolver (for self defense) and taken the NRA basic course. There's a lot more to all this than I had realized ... another adventure!

Achieved another goal I've had for a long time—learned how to grow sprouts. It's quite easy, really. My gourmet salad is even healthier than it was!

But my life is not perfect, witness a recent incident with my computer. A fellow convinced me I should switch from Windows to Linux operating system and that he could quickly and easily do it. Well, after 2 weeks of computer-hell, I had to send my beautiful Toshiba laptop back to the factory and purchase a desktop so as to keep working. Oi vey! The Toshiba is back now, but I'm going to have to pay my new computer guy to synchronize it with the desktop for use when I travel.

Okay, so you probably want to know if I'm still single (smile)... yes, I am, but I have been dating a bit--just haven't met the right guy yet.

The Affinity Exchange continues to get products, so please continue to promote it to your single friends. Have a few piano students now, ages 8, 11, 60 and 70!

Recently sister Jane and I drove to Galesburg (IL) for a family get-together. Met relatives I didn't even know existed! Nice, since my family tends to be smallish.

To wrap up, I think this is a highly unusual time in history. According to Henry, we're at the end of the 1000-year period that transitions us from a 24,000 year period of “darkness” to a 24,000 year period of “light.” Apparently the Mayans in South America on Dec. 21, 2012 plan to celebrate the start of the new period. Sounds like a good plan to me. However, I think the “dark forces” (i.e., the global elite) are still trying to cause a lot of destruction, so I'm trying to be prepared for anything, and help others do the same. First priority: STORE FOOD!

Again, if you’re not already familiar with, I hope you will take a look at it.

If you know of anyone interested in helping me with my sustainable farm, and possibly a sustainable community, please give them my contact data.

Hope you all are flourishing and prospering (thriving)!
Please stay in touch.

Love to all, Marcia (217) 607-0632 home (818) 552-2211 cell
