It is a very hot summer day, and, as usual at my place, since I live in Eugene, Oregon, I live in one of the WORST AIR, and clouded compressed valley in all the Pacific Northwest. Even my cat won’t go out the back door to eat grass, the air is so FOUL. CACKLE CACKLE! But I have all the windows and doors closed tightly and the air-conditioner on, cause of our 80 and 89 degree weather lately.—Willamette Valley always had BAD AIR from the local lumber mills.–and summer grass-seed field burning.
A HISTORY OF EUGENE AND LANE COUNTY:
Since we also have the worst allergy stuff in the valley, people who CAN, flee to the coast and stay there as long as summer hits we Eugenians in the head and lungs. The lumber-mills are gone, but there’s still grass-seed burning altho this is largely a RESIDENTIAL REGION NOW, not an agricultural one.
Too bad! The orchards here (we had one) used to be ripe with fruit; we even had our own grapes.My parents made WINE on the local “home-wine-making permit” and I remember big jugs of fruit wine set all over the main hallway(they had to stay SOMEWHERE) and our dad’s wine potion came up with delicious plum wine, or grape wine, which had a big KICK at the end of a sip.
This was long before all the winemakers came here. We had the first wine-exhibt in Lane County Fair( which was a much better fair then) and we all entered art, jam, and pie in the fair contests.My sister’s pie crust got an award. She invented one of her own.My mom’s canning was great then,& we had plenty to can.I thought I was a painter, then, way before I realized that only art teachers make money, not painters or even commercial art people. it was BEFORE the valley lost all it’s rain, and we got our perpetual drought, and stopped having rain 10 months of the year.—stopped having almost ANY RAIN.
It was before we traded horrible lumber-mill smoke and miserable grass-seed smoke, for the auto SMOG and allergies, & massive pollen that gives us all breast cancer, asthma, and lung diseases now. Some trade off! My dad’s sinus was always bleeding, but once we caught all the tremendous SMOG FROM L.A. AND CALIFORNIA, that thousands of CA outsiders brought here with their thousands of autos, we were now set up for worse lung & sinus problems.AND the weather changed to bad-gardening weather. DARN.
WHAT A VALLEY! Touted as the “now-gentrified” Organic,GREEN, “Sustainable.” ENVIRONMENTALISTS, Carbon-Foot-Step-Aware, and NATURAL FOODIE VALLEY OF Chi-Chi-Rich-Hippie-Yuppieswho loved the very expensive produce at the Lane County Farmer’s Market, Trader Joe’s, (for sweet goodies) and avery now-expensive Organic-Safeway Produce, the FOOD came in two different qualities; very cheap, bad,Win-Cos’ and Wal-marts, for we down-trodden natives(read, “not much money”) and Safeway,Farmer’s Market, and cute little organic farms that sold you a broccoli or kale for more than $10. a piece(EEEEK!) , for all our new Gentrified-Royal Gentry who owned all of the Valley and Oregon now.
It was one thing to be poor in Oregon before,but now we had nothing but the very rich & chi-chi-organic invaders, who had money, leaving the majority of us even poorer than we used to be! The middle-class left the state, to get work elsewhere, and the only Oregonians here were some old guys, and low-paid working class. I forgot to mention the thousands of HOMELESS who migrated here, or were natives, who clobbered the food stamp-and-social-services depts. to death. Plus, all the well-to-do seniors retired here, cause their money was more than the local worker. (You DON’T want to work here, you can’t survive on the pennies-wages.)–and all these well-to-do- new seniors made it more expensive for the local worker.
Hispanics have discovered Eugene and Oregon; their Spanish flies all over my chiro-office, and every where else here. As long as they came here LEGALLY, I don’t care. But illegal aliens I do NOT WANT. We already have thousands of homeless everywhere–who are citizens, and we have no jobs or economy for THEM. –Nor do we have extra social-services money; the grapevine says that Oregon schools are broke—the state is secretly selling all public forests to private logging companies, just for school money.. The state of Oregon is BROKE—cause there is no business or capitalism here. No more lumber-mill jobs.
To put it bluntly—.California-well-to-do and East-Coast invaders just brought all L.A. AND CALI, PLUS SMOG, down to Oregon!–and pushed out all the natives! The cost-of-living is way UP;the rent is HIGH–and the food is unaffordable. And some of us got STUCK HERE,on low-value homes or real estate ,and we can’t sell our houses on DESTROYED RIVER ROAD.YEAH, DESTROYED- RIVER ROAD! The county destroyed our homes & real estate, and now our land is worth SHIT.
I can’t even sell my destroyed, de-valued homeand land, to leave, cause the county and city destroyed all our land-value! THANK YOU, LANE COUNTY, AND CITY, FOR destroying my land-valueand ruining everything on River Road! You fuckers! Don’t any of you govt. leaders go out, late at night, alone, you would be mighty tempting targets to the residents and home-owners you ruined, on River Road! You’re lucky I am very bad at rifle-shooting and making bombs.But I can’t vouch for any of my neighbors. –their homes and land are ruined too, cause you turned River Road into a mass-freeway.
But I was going to complain about Word Press fouling up our software to log into the blog; its now “so advanced and improved” I get stuck in the new mess, and the only way I can get into my own blog, is an aged bookmark on my computer. Otherwise, without that, I could not get into my own blog.
THERE’S my major, senior, non-techie bitch today. OVER-COMPLEX-SOFTWARE AGAIN! HEY, that used to be fun, but there’s too much of it everywhere now! I still can”t draw on PENCIL MADNESS website, cause I can’t log in so I can draw.(I only scribble. “Oekaki” that is.)
BUT—we forgot to celebrate Mr. Trump, who gave such a spirited and forth-right GOP nomination speech, ending with, “I love you people”.—and talked about every issue that’s bothering we voters everywhere.–and was HONEST about all the govt. corruption and dying America. Mr. Trump was the only person to HONESTLY ADMIT how screwed-over our country has become–and wants to do something about it.This is a man who knows business, and wants to apply his success to fix our economy too. And this is not some poor hick from low-class poverty in Georgia, who just wants to make his fortune from eating up all the govt. money he can get—a “professional-politician”who’s main goal is money and power. This gentleman is already successful, and wants to help our country become that way again. Everything he said made complete sense. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” And finally, “Don’t send a boy, to do a man’s job!”–I think we finally got a MAN in the house again. —it feels good! 🙂
