Click here for how to send "eemayil" ('xcuse the bot- baffling spelling...) to Dave! USE PLAIN TEXT!!!! If you're a spammer (spammers DON'T use plan text!), or if you send mail with too much "mark-up bs" in it, or any kind of pernicious mail), it will automatically be routed to "spam-busters" and deleted! So use plain text with no ...'fancy'...(yeah, right..) html codes. Also, if you wish me to get your mail, you must avoid any words that often appear in spam (we all know what these are). --In the subject line, especially.

Dave's "curriculum vita" (resume)

Of course, MUSIC INSPIRES us, in many ways, to FIGHT FOR PEACE, HAPPINESS, AND JUSTICE! (Those thus inspired may click the link for many enlightening thoughts-- but be sure to read any warnings given about the riskiness, here in our current ...'society'..., of doing so.)

For links to outside sites, there is of course also a slight risk of pernicious ...'cookies'... or other viruses. Thus you click at your own risk"!
__but do please let me know about any accessibility problems or warnings I should have given accessibility- wise (for example, irresponsible, ...UM,... UH,... ...'updating'... ... (yeah right...)) for links given on these pages. ALSO, this is a ...'COOKIE'... - FREE SITE!!!! Thus, please advise me if this page gets hacked and attempts to infect your 'puter with any !@%#!*&, uh, ...'cookie'...'s

(I've seen such things happen- yahoo seems to try to make some attempt but has ended up pretty much going over to the criminal update fever infexted (or is it, perhaps, inVested..?) camp.)
Worldwatch Institute-- a prime source of objective and forward-looking information containing lots of numerical data; i.e., lots of dismal statistics, but if you wade through these (and overcome any depression you encounter as a result of THINKING...), you get to some really well-thought-out ideas on some of the things we really need to do, and other things we might want to try, to ensure the future well-being of the children of the world, who will have to somehow deal with what we leave them!

Here is a window on our 'nation'..'s pitiful health ...'care'.... 'system'...
ACT NOW For Effective Treatment for Lyme Disease Victims

And they sawed... the branches on which they sat... --Bertold Brecht; click the hypertext for the rest of the poem... To put it more directly. 'we' (under ...'our'... self-appointed dictator, geeDubya Nush) are screwing up the world very, very quicly-- it may already be beyond repair.

However, WE CAN, if we summon up our Buddha- Nature, find the strength in our lives to STOP SAWING these proverbial branches on which human beings' continued existence in this world IS PRECARIOUSLY PERCHED!
