I read a post earlier today and the person seemed upset with the people running permies, and I kept thinking about it through the day.
Negativity seems to come so easy to humans. I myself am a pessimist by nature, but I try to remind myself to be positive, to find the joy in life. I just wanted to tell all of you thank you. I love this sight. I could find most of what I get here on the web, but I feel like not only am I getting more honest and true information, I also enjoy the people on and running permies. I'm sure my children thank you too since I can talk to like minded people about my chickens, garden, ect. and not bore them. This is the only sight I post to. I feel like you are helping me live a better life, and in turn be more conscience about how the way I live impacts the world we live in. At the risk of sounding like a total kiss ass I wanted to thank you for all the intelligent, caring hard work you put in. Thank you

Jen, I can get the same way too. For me it really sucks because I am giving high amounts of medication that makes me VERY aggressive. It kills off the cancer, but makes me really agitated, so I have to really watch what I type.
But I hope in some way I have helped you, that is why I am still here, first coming here because a neighbor asked about Rocket Mass Heaters and I had no idea what they were, then I saw there was a section for sheep, and other topics that I knew stuff about, so I stayed.
Through it all, I have had the highs of retiring from the shipyard, to having the lows of utter financial ruin by having cancer...twice. But I am still here, and grateful.
