 The post that went up yesterday is nowhere to be found.
Basically it was about the new website the LLC has put up
to "sell" their idea. 
The site is filled with misleading information
 and outright lies.  It's probably from The Waite Company,
the PR shills from Albuquerque that our foreigners
have hired as their latest "frontmen" on the scam.
  Check it here:
held at Montosa last weekend went well.
Below, Father Tommy Means calls on a higher power
for some help during the litany (below).
(The litany below caught people's attention Saturday.
It was written by Rev. Talitha Arnold of Santa fe, NM.

God of all creation, of rain and fire, of ponderosa and pinon,we your people lift our prayer to You.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For rain in this thirsty land, and for hope in this hard time.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the people who are dealing with a water shortage and its effects  - both financial and personal - from Magdalena to the Plains, from the Rio Grande Valley to Elephant Butte Reservoir.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For firefighters on the front lines, for pilots and crews, and all who are working across the State of New Mexico at this time to contain fires - for their safety and stamina.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the animals and birds that have lost habitat or lack water sources, for the plants and trees, rivers and lakes, and all creation that is suffering because of drought and fire, and often because of human greed or human carelessness.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the farmers and ranchers, and others of our rural communities whose lives and livelihoods are threatened by fire, drought, or water theft.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the just and wise use of the water You have given us, to be gracious stewards of Your creation and good neighbors with all people.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the wisdom to conserve resources, and the grace to share them, with common sense and a dedication to protect what is a sacred trust - to understand that we are not so much owners as we are custodians of land, and to know that water is life.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For the local, state, and federal authorities and leaders - to have Your courage, O Lord, and Your vision, to make hard decisions for the common good,  and the will to stand up to financial and political powers that would rob the state's citizens of what is theirs.
Lord, hear our prayer.
For a peaceful resolution to the difficulties that people face on the San Augustin Plains aquifer water project, and a fair, just, and timely answer from the New Mexico Court of Appeals.
Lord, hear our prayer.
Gracious God, You who hear the prayer of every heart, hear now the prayers we lift up to you now.
(A moment of silent prayer.)
Hear all of our prayers O God, spoken and unspoken.
Remind us that You are the One who listens and Who hears.
Grant us the wisdom to love one another, and this God-given earth, as You do.
We pray in Your name, and offer the prayer that Christ taught us:
Our Father, Who are in heaven, holy be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

We have some excellent video footage of the Montosa event 
that we'll be sharing here and on YouTube when time
allows for some editing.  Our "shooter" for the day was
 Kirk Loy, an old friend from our PBS days, who has a
 large batch of state, regional, and national awards
for his excellent production work.
This is all part of a larger effort for a documentary film
we're working on.  We've got some interviews done,
and are scheduling more.  Please contact us if
you'd like to speak your peace, as they say.
