Review: Building A Better World In Your Backyard

Sitting here by my window, with over ten inches of snow on the ground, is a great time to review this Permaculture book by Paul Wheaton and Shawn Klassen-Koop. I’ve been working on farms and orchards since the 1980’s, but this book is an inspiration to step up my game. Paul Wheaton is a bear […]

When The Trucks Stop Running

Here’s something to think about; What the hell are you going to do if there is a major disruption in our supply line? For the last thirty years I have lived on farms, and with the use of the internet and online shopping, nothing is out of reach anymore. Need work boots? No problem. Same […]

    While taking another break from reading dystopian books on the state-of-the-world, I picked up my copy of “Bigfoot Behavior”, by Ray Crowe.

  • Review: “The Socratic Method” – By Farnsworth
    Review: The Socratic Method By Ward Farnsworth Many months ago, I decided I needed to get into some classic books that I had never read in school. One such book was “The Republic” by Plato. Well, that didn’t last long. I was overwhelmed by the archaic language and ancient Greek names. I can be pretty […]
  • Reviews: Sea Monsters & Sasquatch
    Regular readers might know that I can’t just do dystopian analysis of current events all the time; sometimes I have to get into something completely different.
