Just a note to introduce myself. I am here because dilligaf posted a link to here on another site, and I thought I'd take a look. My husband & I are interested in simple living.... with an eye to what is needed in the future for us to survive and live well. We have 10 acres and endeavour to live as self-reliantly as possible. We're well along that pathway, but I'm keen to pick up lots more ideas and improvements. This seem like a good place to do that, and I'm looking forward to learning more.
