"Wow.  Wealth, privilege and a Buick on a dirt road.  Now there's some content to chew on.  I think I better hurry up and get my old lady basket on wheels to be able to walk up to the Grocery store and back home without having a…"

"Pat:  You are an endless source of knowledge for me.  :)  I loved Harriet's comment about a trail of Hooch.  Did you know that the word Hooch is a derivative of a Native Alaskan word--can't remember the exact word, but…"

"I should have known that you would have been there Pat.  In fact, while reading the book the husband sounds like your kind of guy.  He hunts, fishes, can fix anything and built their cabin from nearby trees with the help of his…"

"Hey all:  It's been pretty quiet over here on the Homegrown front.  Thought I'd mention a book I'm reading that'll make an urban homesteader's hair stand on end:   Arctic Homestead: The True Story of One…"

"Gotta love the neighbors--mine didn't work so yours won't.  Yours sounds like Fort Knox.  Good job!  If I ever move to a rural area I'll be chatting you up for instructions. :o    Pat: Sounds yummy.  Did…"

"Yes Harriet:  I was on my soapbox--ranting and raving.  I do try and be respectful of others' viewpoints, where I have trouble is when their way of thinking stunts mine. Sigh.  I am sorry to hear about the Great Divide in your…"
