Terrorists, anthrax, bird flu, peak oil and wars over water supply. We breathed a sigh of relief when the Berlin Wall came down and the Soviet Union was dissolved.

Of course, I wouldn't be on the West Coast of Ireland if I didn't worry about sustainability or not wanting to work for the slave owning corporations in the cities.

All I can do is live a wholesome life and hope that nature doesn't strike me down.
