A Tiny Home Takes Shape in Brooklyn, but It May Not Stay

NYTimes has a nice article on Tiny Houses in todays paper and noted 'Ms. Mercer is building her house in Brooklyn, but probably will not live in it there. It’s on a trailer, and when she is done, she will tow it away, possibly upstate, where a tiny house colony for techie types and a left-leaning ti...

Re: The Off Grid Project Timeline And The Trolls

School break time and vacation time used to be when kids and young adults with nothing better to do would flood the AOL chat rooms with nonsense. Or even FB and Twitter will see a certain type who will comment on posts/tweets and never have anything positive to say. And I mean never. My two friends ...

Re: The Off Grid Project Timeline And The Trolls

Have a couple friends who have really nice YouTube channels and they tell me they get an occasional obnoxious person but they delete them and move on. Someone said a YT owners personality can either discourage or encourage trolls or other obnoxious types. I wouldn't know myself.

Re: The Off Grid Project Timeline And The Trolls

Since you said we could ask questions here goes. Have friends of 22 and 38 who worked on Wall Street and took a hit in 2008-09 but regrouped and got new jobs. So I am curious why if you have been so successful in the past, why are you not working at a job that pays. You are able bodied, so why are y...

Re: Culling chickens growing food

I no longer eat meat, but when I helped my friend with her chickens and turkeys I also remembered not to feed the birds for twelve to eighteen hours before slaughter. Only water. This is important I was told because it helps keep the bird hydrated and meant the birds system wasn't working hard at di...

Re: Culling chickens growing food

Back in 2006 I helped my friend Andrea cull two big turkeys, which I actually made red blindfolds with sequins for. She is holding one of the big turkeys, blindfolded, around 9 am on a cold December 23rd morning, and she loses her balance, the turkeys falls to the ground undhurt, but its next to a s...

Re: Culling chickens growing food

When we ate poultry which we culled, I used blindfolds and wraps which soothed the birds and kept them calm. In fact they didn't make much of any movement. It is my belief (am a Christian) that if one chooses to eat meat, one must raise meat animals in the most humane way and cull in the quickest an...

Re: Culling chickens growing food

Actually letting a chicken run to bleed out isnt always wise, simply because it can make the meat toughter because the chemistry in the chicken alters and tightens the meat structure.

Mulching

When you put mulch around trees, bushes you never put it up next to the tree because it creates a wood rot, mold issue that can kill the tree. And when we apply mulch in our Back To Eden style gardens, we use buckets not shovels which makes the task go faster.
