I'll jump on this bandwagon. I also wanted to say, I really like how when you log in, you go back to the page you were previously viewing!

As a former web designer, it drives me crazy when sites don't do that.

I'm kind of back up to the back up staff and volunteers here at permies, I just want to say THANK YOU for all the efforts that go into keeping these forums a nice place to hang out.

Burra and everyone, you all are amazing!

I am humbled by your service and dedication to this community.



You nurture seeds of thought, seeds of community, and even the seeds of goodness that are within people.

A thousand thank you's.

This morning I woke thinking, I get to hear from folks who raise bullfrogs for a living (who sent a lovely note and thanks for the forums), others who gather and ferment capers from the wilds of Ladakh, and neighbors down the road raising Icelandic chickens. How cool is that?

Here, in my Lana-esque "man hands" (a reference from the show 'Archer') is the jar of plump, aromatic, wild Ladakh capers! Look at the size of them!

Nice! What fun to get treats from afar!

I would just like to add my "Thank you very much" to the list. I love hanging out here. It's so . . . nice.  And today I was made a Pollinator! I'm not sure what exactly that means yet, BUT I know I get to give away the proverbial Apple A Day. So that'll be fun.

Thanks for the safe haven.

Just watched a you tube video from Permaculture Voices conference 2014. Paul Wheaton is always a dynamic speaker and I really appreciate the message he put forth about being open minded and kind when replying to new ideas about permaculture. I don't know if things have gotten any better in the last two years or not. As a chemist in my working life I understand the need to be open to new ideas. I dablle in gardening now that I'm retired and spend a great deal of time outside managing my 1 acre property and hope to have fruit trees to add to my blackberry and blueberry bushes.

Please keep spreading the word about permaculture ideas. I did not know about corporate trolls and how they battle against ideas that are contrary to big business or just to be rude. Thanks for the insightand new info. After seeing Geoff Lawton's videos and many other speakers on the topic, I really think this is the smartest move for the future of farming. Thanks again Paul keep on eating three squares a day

Paul, we know that you've been down lately, (physically and mentally), but you always rebound stronger. We should all find strength in your drive and determination. If we can summons your strength, there's no limit to what can be achieved. Thank you for not giving in to pain, frustration or disappointment...I won't either.

Thank you, Devaka Cooray. It seems that whenever there is a new feature or some problem is fixed, it has Devaka's name on it. I don't understand how software works, and I don't need to. Thank you.

Mr. Wheaton, thank you for thanking me. Not that I need thanking, but it is nice to know that there are other givers out there besides ones-self. Eric

Thank you Paul, for seeking possibilities in the impossible, beauty in the stale, imagination in the dearth, strength in community, and encouraging us to follow suit. Because of this site and all of the behind the scenes folk, I can now say I’ve weathered my first winter with my RMH!!

Oh wow! Thank you all for your affirmations! What a surprise and blessing.

Chris, I’d be honored to share. Is this the appropriate place to answer or would you recommend another thread?

I'm so grateful: you all have read and responded to dozens and dozens of my thoughts on various topics in the last few months, refined and added to any suggestions and ideas, and have created an incredible online atmosphere that it took me many months to understand was not a lucky, happy accident. Staff and members always give us the feeling that we are making valuable contributions to the forum (and the world!) which surely must create upward spirals right and left. It certainly has for me--many thanks and best wishes for all of you behind Permies!

Angela, I think you should lock through the RMH forum here: https://permies.com/f/125/rocket-stoves

If you see a thread you think your build fits nicely with, please add to it. If you don't, just start your own thread in that forum. We like as much info as we can get about successful builds like yours - well done!
