Do you have any blockers in your browser?  I have a few that prevent flash and other video-thingies from playing.  I have to turn them off to watch some videos.



AHH!!  Raven was right on!  My "Privacy Badger" Chrome addon caused it not to work.  With that disabled for Permies, I now see the video!   Thanks!

This is new!

What is your browser and operating system?

Any other interesting bits on your end that might give us a clue as to what is going on?

Are other people able to watch the video okay?



Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit) running on Mac OSX 10.10.5.

Attached is a screenshot of what I see.

(EDIT:  The screenshot has a weird reddish cast when I upload it for some reason but I'm not seeing that color on my end, FYI)

Here's the link to Terraganix, which is what I believe Charlotte was referencing:

Hope this helps! I've really appreciated this thread, and look forward to incorporating some of the methods in my garden & greenhouse! Thanks all!

Quoting from Nutrition Facts, "I try to think in terms of whole food sources rather than nutrients (have you read The China Study? It has a whole chapter trying to make that point). I’d be happy to talk with you about ratios and percentages, but in terms of practical advice I’d encourage people to minimize their intake of the omega-6 rich oils (such as safflower, sunflower, and cottonseed, and all of the processed garbage manufacturers make with them), and try to eat healthy omega-3 rich whole foods such as walnuts and flax seeds every day ... And especially for men as well as women who are expecting, breastfeeding, or even thinking about getting pregnant I would encourage consideration of taking an algae- or yeast-derived long-chain omega-3 supplement."

I agree with Thekla. Flax is great and easy to work into a diet. Flax porridge is quite good for breakfast, provided you add fruit & cinnamon or something to make it a bit more interesting...

Izzy, mind sharing the recipe that you've settled on? It sounds like you've made some refinements... John S, thanks for the DVD review, sounds good!

I'd love to see this kickstarter project team up with this lady's excellent Ted talk idea about using mushrooms to compost yourself after death... Paul, tell your friend to investigate fungi, not just woodchips and sawdust!
