When Julianne and her family came out to Wheaton Labs, they took a LOT of video footage.

Here's a video they took of the Wofatis, how cool!

I learned about growing your own soil after Paul suggested 'One Straw Revolution', I developed my own twist on this for our area and in two years I created topsoil on top of cobblestones by cutting down the weeds with my scythe and leaving them in place. Here is the think to my latest video on the subject:

Paul created a separate thread, dirtpatcheaven podcast about residual income, with a link to that podcast. It's well worth a listen - full of meaty tips.

Legionaries' is an extremofile. It has been proven to survive heat as high as 180 degrees for extended periods, as well as survive a full bottle of chlorine bleach for more than an hour.  The only thing known to kill Legionaries' reliably is exposure to copper ions, which is one reason that it has been largely unknown in the United States for decades until recently, due to a general switch from copper piping (which used to be a nationwide housing code requirement for the main service line, at a minimum) to plastic piping.  Legionaries' is also only dangerous to anyone over 2 years old if the spores are inhaled in a mist.  Either add some copper piping to that shower shack, or consider a bathtub.

Big fan of DPH, ironically discovered both DPI and permies.com independent of each other...it's a small world.

Love the Willow Bank, and the "Invest now!" sign. This is a great example of relaxed, home-style video also. The kids' questions, offering them chalk to draw on the chalkboard, their simple appreciation for the Pee Palace. Thanks again Jocelyn and Paul and Julianne.
 
please buy this thing and then I get a fat cut of the action:
