PM sent from 70 miles out (that's crow-fly -- it's about 90 to drive). I hear Pinot works here in the coastal hills.

The position appears to have been filled.

I'm no longer shopping.

Heath, I have already sent you another one at around 5 PM last evening at the address posted. Check to see if my emails were caught in a filter.

One question, Heath: Did you get my email? I have no reply from you in that medium. I want to hear from you there and begin a discussion. I'm likely as ready to have you on this mission as you are to be here.

So, if you have my email, answer it and let's get something happening. And no, I didn't have any negative feeling from what you wrote here. No worries there.

Email sent. (No problem here with heathens.)

Someone who would make my list, in the vein of Masanobu Fukuoka, would be Edward H. Falkner, author of Plowman's Folly, published in 1943. Their life stories, if of slightly different eras, were somewhat parallel.

Well, firstly, anyone who breaks out of level zero is doing better than the average.

================================

I have level three covered without even having a garden (if you don't count my 206 shiitake logs).

I'm surely some level six.

I hope I have some level eight in me.

================================

Now, with all that, I, with all the good intentions, loaded up on CFLs years ago when the next county over's PUD offered them for $2 each. I'm still using from that cache. I have found much the same results in my own experience with them as Paul reported. Should I shitcan them before they quit working or get what use is left in them (at least before I go off the grid next spring as I presently am planning)?

It's hard to find much linearity in the levels as they could apply to this individual. It could just be my hurky jerky style. But then, I am untreated ADHD and an OCD hoarder of anything that could still have a use to justify its initial creation/resource load.

At 66, and with 37 years of being spoiled by being on the grid (blame my ex-wife), this is going to be a big adjustment for me. I will make my footprint even smaller than it is now, after I burn a little diesel to make some boards from salvage and/or sustainably gathered logs (one tree out of 30 was a living tree, and it came down because it shared a stump with a dead tree). I am going to use whatever resources, financial and practical, to aid my immediate intentional community to Holzerize and Fukuokize themselves and their land base.

================================

(What's Stamets doing on that list, with all his Disneyesque intellectual property defense and corporate relations? We can fix the world his way if he gets his piece of the action. {Sorry, but that's just the way it looks to this reporter [and I borrowed and read his books, and have bought from his catalog.]})
