The Eco and Green-living crowd up here is pretty amazing. Backyard chickens don’t cut it; my LEED-house neighbours have goats. Free-range meat? Pshaw. Folks fish and hunt. How’s *that* for free range.

And then there are my nearly-self-sufficient friends who live on a lake, grow their own vegetables and quinoa, compost their toilet (ewwww, but it works), chop down trees (don’t judge; it’s likely cleaner than your heat source) to heat their home (bear in mind our weather drops to -40C for days on end) and the latest? Bake their bread in this solar-energy contraption. The bread was fabulous, by the way.

I don’t really dare refer to myself as frugal in comparison.

EVERY CORNER OF THE HOUSE HAS A RAIN BARREL.

NOT SURE IF THIS IS USED. OBVIOUSLY NOT DURING MIDNIGHT SUN SEASON.

    Nancy,
    I find that very interesting as it was ten years + ago all those market funds dropped 50 – 80 % in value amd to use your thought ‘ the few in the know got rich’.
    Yes , that was a choice each one of us made in picking those areas of growth so some win amd most lost. Will we ever riot for our share.. think not.
    I’m surprised Business and System Analysts , programmers, techical support jobs are not part of the future job growth considering our society is dependent on technology.

    btb: nice blog site
