Get Off the Dime
Take action, especially following a time of indecision or delay. For example, “It’s time this administration got off the dime and came up with a viable budget.” This expression originated in the 1920s in dance-halls, where a guy paid a dime (ten cents) to dance with the girl of his choice. The phrase, “Get Off The Dime” was an imperative for dancers to get moving.
tegory has talked long enough, it is time that he, “got off his dime.” Tonight, tegory would like to share with you his plan of action to save the world through organic agriculture. His theme is, Healing From The Ground Up. Please help me welcome tegory as he gives his 4th speech project, Get To The Point, from Toastmasters Competent Communications manual.
Maslow put the physiological needs of breathing, food, water, sex, sleep, homeostasis, and excretion on the bottom of his Self-Actualization pyramid. My dream is all about FOOD, from the ground up. We are, what we eat. My fellow countrymen and women have become the fattest, sickest, and malnourished nation on the planet. Unless we change our ways, if, we don’t get off the dime, just like the global financial crisis, we are going to join them in misery on the path to Self-Actualization.
My plan of action is to create our own supply chain of nutrient rich foodstuffs – beginning with 100% natural, organically pastured dairy. To get us back to the natural diet of our ancestors, I plan to work backwards with dessert first. Return the Gobi Desert back to Marco Polo’s day with the world’s most popular dessert, ICE CREAM.
“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.”
“Milk, nature’s most perfect food.”
Prohibition took the nature out of nature’s most perfect food.
Henry Ford took the farmer off the farm.
Roundup killed all the living organisms in the soil.
Today, the only way to get 100% natural, organically pastured dairy, in the US, Europe and Asia, is own your own cow.
My, get off the dime, plan is simple – bring 25 liter buckets of raw, fresh milk, from an organic dairy in the countryside, to a French style grocery Café, and turn it into, the world’s favorite dessert, ice cream.
