Boxing spiders of Kilome

©muoki kioko 2016

Armed with ‘black gloves’, protecting their bloodshot Red eyes are these ‘boxing spiders’ in kilome.

At home both on surfaces or as they glide ‘still’ on water surfaces – looking always ready to throw in a fewww punches on anything in their way. 

Armed with a front set of 4 Eyes and another two smaller eyes on the side, they are unalarmed at bigger objects in front of them like YoU!

*ID’d by Zarek Cocker as a ‘Salticide jumping spider’

World’s second tinniest bat’s – kilome

This is a view from standing position of an adult. The bat is the black spot on left side of image (thats how small it is).

Growing to about 7 grams, this is an adult

..this you can tell by the well developed teeth you see in the above image

See actual life size vs blades of grass /pebbles on ground as found in kilome on first image above.

Thank you Risky for the ID –  as a ‘pipistrielle Bat’ 

Risky is one of Africa’s finest bat Experts

Nature’s gardens – kilome

While on a walk with friends one pointed out how a section on the roadside looked like it had snow.

In a short while people were lying down taking selfies against this grass that looked like tiny snow drops.
I’ve captured the scene the best I could without manipulation to show how nature beautifully arranges and displays itself in kilome. Hope you like it.

There’s more than enough for ALL!

Stop telling people, is saying stop learning something new. Your new knowledge plus past experience is what creates more for humanity. That’s unless you wanted to keep sending a runner to deliver your mail:)
No single farmer can efficiently cater for his/households needs! To be able to create enough tomatoes to satisfy a market plus add value I’ll definitely need to create a team, I’ll need to engage ie pay for professional services and as I develop my line to the next level I’ll needs researchers!
Inefficiencies create contracted/diminished services and markets serving only one individuals interests. Those from East Africa remember the old telephone services, one player you had to beg for services ie with the engine of a train but acting like a bicycle – yes 50,000 jobs gone. However mobile telephony that replaced it created 100,000s of new jobs while creating better services..
The other day I received a mail about a monk that asked his apprentice to push over a cliff a poor families only asset (a weak cow that hardly gave 1ltr milk). Mean?
When the apprentice returned a few months later he found a prosperous family. What had happened? That family didn’t realize what they had until what they thought they had was taken away did they realise they had been sitting on much bigger unutilized assets ALL along.
So when information is posted here about chicken feed making does it kill jobs/peoples income ie chicken feed manufacture industry?

Let’s do the maths:

20million chicken × just 35grams daily = 7million kgs of feed daily ie 140,000 bags of feed daily.

– now 20 million chicken will ONLY feed ½ our population white meat protein for just 4 days in a year. What of the other 361 days?

– who has the capacity to produce 140,000 50kg bags of feed daily ie 1.6 bags per second just to cater for available birds!?
– If they were 100 producers each would have to produce 1bag every minute for 24hrs just to service the 20million birds

– who has the single capability to produce enough of each ingredient daily!?

-Are people even aware of how much of each ingredient is daily required to service the 140,000 bird’s!? Do our farmers even have the capacity!? Then we complain when the farmer relative keeps asking us for handouts while he’s not servicing an industry – a capacity he has at hand.

The information again provided is already in public domain created by your taxes and all it does is give a foundation to begin – doing is something else all together.

I don’t like changes! The gadget your reading this message on created massive changes in peoples sole source of income ie distribution of books and newspapers – throw it away if you are sincere you want to save their source of income.
