I am Bill January 22, 2006 5:15 PM

As I was doing the joining process,... there was a question for me to answer,...

So as an introduction,...

I would like to suggest that anyone that really wants to know,... look at my profile,.... which needs updated,... fairly complete otherwise.

and additionally,... here is the answer to my application question.

Why am I joining Activists & Community Group Leaders (or something like that!) :

Because I am an activist!?!?!?

Because I am a leader!?!?!?

Ok,... All right,...

I am joining because I have been trying to get a group of people together for the past 20 years to plant new forests throughout the world. 

Many separate startups,... many different names,... not a single tree planted yet,... except the ones I planted when young.

I have this very unusual condition,... where someone presents me with a problem,... and it does not take so long before a workable idea pops into my head.  To many to tell about.

The problem is that I just don't get so worked up about anything,... and so most of my solutions do not get tried.

Quick example: Major ship gets stuck in sand in Oregon USA.  As soon as I heard of it,... I called the Coast Guard and told them I had a solution to the stuck ship.

They were not interested,... called other Authorities,... they were not interested.

The ship eventually broke in half, spilled desil... half was taken to sea and burried at sea,... as far as I know the other half is still where it got stuck.

The solution: Sandbag around the ship,... add water,... float the boat to deeper water,... and no desil gets spilled.

It is endless,... solutions for just about anything and everything,... and cannot get anyone to participate.

So I guess I am joining here because I need contact with leadership types,... because I cannot seem to get much done by myself.

I suppose that if I were to come up with an idea of a way to kill more people in less time I would likely become as popular as Einstein,.... who did help create the bomb that killed more people in less time then any other invention!

But,... I want to do good things,.. and cannot find anyone that would want to have any good things done!

Hmmm,... does that answer the question?

Well, if that does not cover the who that I am,... I am sure I can come up with more.

Bill

Hello, I am a member of Group, and I just wanted to introduce myself to this Group. My name is Edward Janus. I am a Disability Advocate and Activist.

A little bit more about me. I have Cerebral Palsy and an amputee (both legs) confined to a wheelchair. I am homebound, shut-in. I have worked to earn a living for almost 25 years. Then I had over ten surgeries on my cervical spinal column (neck area) in my lifetime. Now I have been on Permanent Social Security Disability since 1996. I was married and have a daughter. In 1999 an automobile while crossing a street, struck my wife. She died instantly. Now, I Live Alone. I receive only one household income. A Social Security check monthly. I would contact people by telephone, but I am also deaf. I cannot hear very well on the phone. You can reach me by email; all my activities and tasks are via Internet.
