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.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://stoves2.com
