Buried in information!

This link popped across my FB feed tonight - with the title - get it while it's free.  Since I'm always the information junkie...I figured since my eyes have now gone square from reading and saving I'd give everyone else the chance to do the same.  :)

Here's the cool bits that she posted tonight.

Sharing cool project at a time

Since I seem to lack the drive these days to actually think for myself (**wink wink**) I figure that sharing the info is a good way to keep this going without stressing myself out over research and so forth.

Here's a nifty link that caught my attention this morning...and I'm quite certain that your insurance broker will go apoplectic over it! 

Rocket Mass the videos, do some reading, I think you'll be quite impressed.  I know I'd LOVE to try one of these do-dads out!

Rocket Mass Heaters

I'd be thrilled to know if any of our readers have it works, how'd they build...and so on.

Back it...kinda

Well, it has been a MOST interesting couple of months around this house...without degenerating into a whole lot of sniveling, let's just say that some stuff is GREAT and other stuff...well, frankly, it blows. 

I think what I'll be doing for the next bit - for lack of time - is re-posting as much info and quick links as I can.  I don't have a lot of time these days for sitting down and expressing my personal views on life, the universe or much of anything else.  I'll be taking a bash at self employment, and for those that are, I'm sure you're quite aware of the half day rule...owning your own business is great - you can work half days!

Sure...pick any 12 hours you like!

So, onto the good stuff! Today's pick for cool skills...

Drinking water from a rain barrel - how to make a filter.

Questions...if you don't ask, you won't get the information

This rather stuck me as of interest this morning in my daily coffee surfing...I know that I'm the type that chooses to NOT listen to doctors much of the time, and tend to see to my own basic health needs by way of diet or other alternative therapies...I don't really have a ton of respect for the "medical professionals" as a whole.  Don't get me wrong - modern medicine is an amazing thing and should I get hit by a bus the last thing I want is a cup of tea and a handful of dandelion leaves!!  Drug it, fix it, and do it now!

Personally, I think the medical system is over burdened by two (even three) generations that were brought up to NOT look after themselves.  We are fed by a system that pays no attention to health, and medicated by a system that pays no attention to food.  So, what to do...

Here's a good article on where to start and what questions to ask...just for the's written by a doctor.  No credit at all taken here...the info, the article, and everything that goes with it belongs to Doom and Bloom and I encourage you to peruse their information!!

Being prepared is more than just stocking up...

Here's an interesting interview with my favorite natural health advocate, Mr. Mike Adams.  He is the founder and editor-in-chief of Natural News dot com.  It's a BIG site, and if you are not familiar with Mike's should be.

If you have the time - please sit and watch this.

I'm sure most of us read or listen to Info Wars at one time or another - this is quite a re-cap of 2012's big stories.
