after where i have been i question many with my judgements, at 59 yrs what the hell as long as it can be helpful in the long run, intentional community is a terminology that implies other communities are unintentional even if they have a community center, don't lose logic in terminology is what i am saying here with my little mind that has lived in a intentional community, science aint money and money greases science, sorry a little emotional right now

i think perhaps Brian is referring to the plant ricin is made from being the creosote bush? i have made and drank walnut hull tea for parasite and fungus issues, it does not taste good however, i was raised in a house built in the 1920's and about 1 foot from the ground on the backside, i remember twice when i was a kid in the 1950's waking up and the floor being covered with termites and my mom vacuuming them up

i was fortunate to meet a couple who built a adobe house in West Virginia, they raised 3 kids in it and 30 years later are still happy with it, adobe floor included, there is a arguement in the passive solar arena about insulating under floor or not, it is my opinion not to as ground temp can help in cooling and heating, a perimeter insulation being blueboard or like dug in with a mattock 1 foot or more is good, to clarify the terminology(adobe),the man told me he made block with a form 18"x 30"x8", he said it about wore his ass out

from my experimentation with cob in regards to insulation i call it fair as a insulator and fair as a heat storage medium, once the cob or mud is fired into a brick it becomes excellent as heat storage and poor as a insulator, this can be tested by putting brick on one side of a hot stove and cob (dried) on the other, the heat will penetrate the brick and not the cob
