I still consider myself a "hippie", from the days of the Whole Earth Catalog, Mother Earth News, Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers comics. I quit high school after the 10th grade, hitchhiked across the USA, coast to coast, border to border. My dad moved us from Fresno, Calif., to St. Louis, and I didn't last long. In !974/75 I was answering an ad for positions and situations(MEN),and coming to southen oregon. I have been here 45 years. A lot of positions and situations have lead to my being able to work and live here. 25+ years of reforestation contracting,5 states, from N. Calif., to Eastern Montana. 9 seasons as wildland fire crew boss, tree surgeon, mechanic...way to much to list here.
Did I mention that when I was in high school I got to meet Janis Joplin?

Howdy,

I do baking and could see or try and chop fine or so and make pastries. I know I could make almond choc. waffles, muffins, sweet breads,cookies etc. Then also make choc. almond smoothies, or a homemade version of hot almond choc. milk. Make your own trail mix with other bulk ingredients?  

I'll take some...ha ha

Howdy,
I also DON'T plant root crops in new/1yr.humanure compost. The above post give good info. Earthy smell is a GOOD sign. I have Goodbye to the Flush Toilet, and The Humanure Cookbook, no septic system here.

Howdy,
Saw this on local facebook site,

A young women is in court for assault and battery against her boyfriend, busted up his guitar collection, etc.

The Judge asked "First offender?'

"No, Your Honor,...First a Gibson, then a Martin, then a Fender".

Howdy,


I bought a ryobi 40 volt string weed wacker kit(tool, one batt.40V 4.0 amp hr., charger). It's called expand a tool. I now have the blade cutter head, and the cultivator. I also bought one after market batt.(ebay, 40V.,6.0 amp hr).Batteries are expensive. I've used the brush blade on black berry and small sized wood(1 inch or less). The cultivator is really handy on prepared beds, loamy garden, but can be a burden to try to till ciay type soils. I can/do bust up sod. and then run cultivator. I still use my 2 cycle mantis. If you think about getting one or some of these, it might be a good idea to go somewhere and have one or all put together to get a sense of the balance. I'm also glad when the battery dies, as I'm more than ready to take a break!
