Coastal Beach Concept: Anti-Beach Erosion Counter Measure

Hello All,

I've lived in Florida practically my entire lifetime be it in South Florida and now in South West Florida. Each hurricane season after tropical storms or full blown hurricanes unfortunately make landfall. Coastal communities in Florida that depend on tourism need to replenish they're local beach tourist hot spots.

Here in Sarasota Florida that usually means hiring an expensive dredging barge outfit. To dredge sand from near local island keys to replenish lost eroded sand from Siesta Key or elsewhere.

I would like to offer an alternative abstract solution to this costly dilemma by suggesting a "Beach Skirt". A "Beach Skirt" is a tough fabric like material that acts like a sleeve across the shoreline of a particular tourist beach region.

The "Beach Skirt" can be deployed manually with the aid of a vehicle or via a deployment station on either end of the beach shoreline. The beach skirt can be anchored into place beneath the waterline and other buried hooks in the sand. That when deployed in a sweeping fashion without the need of any over head cables. Will horizontally sweep across the beach shoreline of a tourist beach before an anticipated tropical disturbance.

Thus when "Storm Surge" occurs there will be an avoidance of significant beach shoreline erosion. After the danger of a tropical disturbance passes from the region the "Beach Skirt" is merely retracted into storage.

This is the general concept in how to safeguard a coastal regions tourist beach locales.

Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes of The Day

Hello All,

Here is an unusual second posting at the end of a month. May you enjoy another three "Jewels of Truth" statements as I was inspired to write them at the time. With the customary "Favorite Quotes of The Day" at the end of this segment based on other quotable persons.

831) Desires are like flowing water, where one seizes a droplet of water there is always more gushing water to be obtained.
So to desire is to be alive. However what one desires must be scrutinized within one's heart. To be of a true need or of a good love for personal wish fulfillment. Otherwise vanity by ego's lead may yield fulfilled desires that are empty and lack of a true soulful craving. ----Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

832) Idle dreams are like vagabond fools going from place to place and returning home. If a conscious dream lacks substance then it to will more than fade away like dust in the wind. Sub-conscious dreams are of another matter of well being that speaks to your overall spirit within. Their symbolic language is best understood by subtle traits that are mostly personal to the dreamer. Otherwise generalized dream reference materials become an unruly misfit in interpreting your personal sub-conscious dream sleep states. ----Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

833) To know and love God(dess) is to understand life and death itself. Both are of one act consummated in truth that frees those who comprehend this majesty of being. Albeit one does not need to know God(dess) in totality in order to experience his/her adorement for all. Those of benevolence who venture into the womb of creation with earnest love in their hearts. Will yield the most bountiful harvest of their lives with absolute love as his or her own good fortune. Amen. ----Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant. ---Robert Louis Stevenson.

Your soul mates are not your saviors. ---Gary Zukav.

The world is not here to make you happy. It is here to make you conscious. ---Eckhart Tolle.

Hello All,

This concept may well be suited for the more enterprising hardcore gamer and especially for those who run a Gamer Internet Cafe or a Game Software retail business location outlet.

By taking the joy of electronic gaming be it PC, video game console, or portable gaming device. Where those that need aid or are seeking an overall level of enjoyment of a particular game title. Can enroll in a "Gamer Workshop" be it at a Internet Cafe or via an online course offering by an enterprising individual.

The game workshop can be as simple as teaching from a game "strategy guide" that usually sell for $19.95 US. So if the instructor can obtain a volume discount on purchased game strategy guides. To be resold to his / her own students in the workshop at retail prices that adds additional income to the workshop provider. If the workshop is to be held online the game workshop provider can arrange for an affiliation program sign-up (where available). With the game strategy guide publisher via a banner link thus making a commission on referred sales. So the student attendee can obtain a PDF or paperback version of the strategy guide during an online game workshop.

Can teach additional nuance techniques that may not be found in a game strategy guide. Be it the general fair of gamer culture to those who are new comers or casual gamers to this hobby past time.

Those that choose to teach an online "Game Workshop" can obtain a TeamSpeak or Ventrillo chat server. Besides any additional portal website they may utilize, be it a forum community site or otherwise.

For the very spend thrifty who are on a shoe string budget and can not obtain a volume discount on a game strategy guide.

828) We are all a grace onto each other if we choose to be so. Otherwise we do not reach our full potential as a child of Spirit. We are all a reincarnation of the one great maker we call God(dess). For that is what manifested life is all about in simplest form. We are all lovers, for that is why we chose to be reborn as incarnated souls.

829) Comedians are healers of the heart. Their buoyant comedy transcends the common place into the absurd. Such laughter makes us happy fools in Spirit, but adjusts us to the crazy reality of our day and age. Comedians act as fools, but in disguise they are sharp as a tack. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

830) Our inner light within our souls is from the torch of God(dess) as an eternal brilliance. This majestic light is the spark of creation from the very beginning. That still illuminates within us to this very moment. The eternal is pleased with this unceasing resource within the totality of Life. "No One", has a monopoly on this Light!
