My sentiments too. The world is a pretty stupid place, but it is very likely to outlast me, so party on while the party (and one's own life) lasts.

I do have a few very personal charities. I buy Real Change newspaper from a woman who had a whole lot of bad luck but is uncomplaining and strong, and from a guy who is very entertaining and upbeat. He apparently sees me as a fellow pobre so he is all the time telling me places to see cheap movies, ways to show a lady a good time on a small dime, etc.

My goal in life is to be good to the people who are my family, and/or are good or entertaining to me. For others I want to have love, but also distance.

Sunshine is absolutely necessary to charge a solar panel.

not really.

in some jurisdictions, the subsidy for returning green energy to the grid through grid-connected private panels is such that people shine non-green powered light on the panels at night in order to farm the credit from returning green energy to the grid.
