For Seeing the Forest’s 10th anniversary I’ll be posting a few of my favorites. Here’s one, from 2005: The Trade Problem
View of San Francisco from Sausalito.
See how this ship is riding high off the water? This ship is loaded with empty containers, bound for China.
Ships come into the port loaded with goods that we buy from China. But China doesn’t buy very much from us. So we have to send ships back loaded with empty containers. (Well almost empty, they’re actually filled with dollars, and jobs, and the future.)
The tenth anniversary of the blog skippy the bush kangaroo is coming up (just 5 days before the 10th anniversary of this blog).
skippy was one of the first blog, if not the first, to put Seeing the Forest on its blogroll, helping this blog get off to a good start.
Blogging has come a long way, and not all of us have stuck with it. It has been quite an experience, struggle, adventure and urgent undertaking for all of us.
Go give skippy a great, bit CONGRATS!!!!!
Actually I’ll probably just beg for money to help pay the bandwidth bills…
There’s an orange PayPal Donate button in the left column. I’m trying to raise $1,000,000 to pay the income tax on what I make doing this.
Over in the left column there and down a ways is a DONATE button. It says PayPal on it. This helps me pay to server company, and once in a while maybe a cup of coffee, too, though not so much for a while…
So please consider donating to keep this site going. Thanks.
