I was inspired to get some cast iron cookware because of Paul's influence! (One of his very first podcasts and the his cool video of frying an egg).

Some nice innovation here with the pans being made from a single piece of iron (no rivets). Also, they're Australian-made so you can take advantage of the exchange rate. I just bought mine - sorry about the late notice, but you do still have about 2.5 hrs to get some.

About Good Gopher
GoodGopher was developed by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, editor of Adams was formerly the CEO of a very successful software company. He's now using his technical expertise to create GoodGopher which will benefit all "alternative" websites publishing TRUTH rather than propaganda.

With your help, we are building the internet's largest search engine for those searching for information and news on liberty, natural healing, central banks, food freedom, advanced science and a multitude of other topics no longer allowed in NSA-controlled search engines.

Good Gopher's Pledge of Integrity

GoodGopher is the world's first privacy-protected search engine that filters our corporate propaganda and government disinformation. It was founded by Mike Adams, the "Health Ranger," editor of and a top voice of the Independent Media.

Here at GoodGopher, we are the anti-Google. Here's what we pledge to all our users:

NO SPYING ON YOU. We don't record your search history. We don't track your browsing habits. We don't build a psychological profile of you. When you search on, your search is private. Even if is hacked, it cannot reveal individual search histories because it does not record them!

NO CORPORATE PROPAGANDA OR GOVERNMENT DISINFO. GoodGopher actively seeks to filter out corporate propaganda and government disinfo. Because our filters aren't perfect, we also enable users to flag search results with a "Bad Gopher!" flag. When enough users flag a link as "Bad Gopher!" we review the URL and parent domain to determine whether it should be banned from our index. "Bad Gopher!" clicks do not affect rankings, so trolls have no reason to arbitrarily click links for sites they don't like.
HONEST RELEVANCY ALGORITHM. Our relevancy algorithm is equally applied across all sites, meaning that even small sites have the same shot as being #1 for any given search term as a large site. No site (not even receives any special boost. All sites in the index are subject to the exact same ranking algorithms. Sites can, of course, be banned from the index for spamming or using black hat techniques to try to game the system.

NO PROMOTION OF PHARMACEUTICALS AND OTHER POISONS. GoodGopher is funded by advertising, but we don't let just anybody advertise on the site. We specifically ban all corporate advertisers who sell pharmaceuticals, pesticides, GMOs, vaccines and other toxic products that destroy human life and contaminate the planet. This isn't even the full list, of course. We also ban gambling and porn sites, and we review each potential advertiser on a case by case basis. Our decision process is guided by principles of human decency, human rights, ecological sustainability and honest business practices. We reserve the right to ban any advertiser at any time.

NO BACK DOORS TO THE NSA. GoodGopher wasn't built by a bunch of NSA spooks. We don't have any back doors to spy agencies or federal agencies. It should be noted, however, that we are still subject to court orders from federal judges, but even if a court ordered us to turn over something, we can't turn over that which we don't possess!

Received this in my email ... haven't read it because it's not relevant to me, but thought it might be more relevant for Cassie / Paul. It basically talks about the benefits they got by using a FB group over a forum.

I write this post semi-reluctantly because I *detest* FB since they rape our privacy - so my personal preference is to not use FB, but there may be more $$ in FB.

Whether you’re looking into building your dream home or simply want to renovate a specific area of your home or office, using green building materials can do wonders for supporting your health and the environment. Organic, natural, and eco-friendly building materials from reputable, trusted suppliers is a must for protecting your health from the endocrine disruptors found in conventional building supplies.

I'd like to distance myself from the context that was created around this thread. I am in no way saying x and y was wrong with your community - as if I could do better. I am saying going forward categorization of personalities may be of use (and may make a modest contribution to your future community). And like I said if you're interested in the topic in happy to make a contribution in the form of a book.
"I don't even know who the fuck I am."

"Millions of personalities"

"Permaculture is 90% community"

These comments from the podcast got me to thinking ...

I've been listening to your podcasts and (at least at the beginning) you were asking people to pay a price. Ie, make links etc. I'm extracting myself off twitter and FB ... so can't really link to your stuff. However, I would like to buy a book for you which I *think* (okay, my own grand sense of self-importance) might help in the future.

What am I talking about?

It turns out there are only four basic personalities, which can be pretty much mapped on two scales. ie, if you map a person on the relationship oriented - task oriented scale; and also map a person on the extroverted - introverted scale one can pretty much know 70-80% of their personality traits, motivation, fears, etc.

If you wanted to go deeper, you can divide those scales to make 16 sub-personalities.

My guess is Paul is a Choleric / Melancholy blend and Jocelyn is predominately Melancholy.

If you'd like me to get you one of the following books, can you please email me your address? (Presumably you can see my email address)

You can preview the Cathcart book here - this goes WAY beyond just personality.
