A couple of notes for y'all:
1. There are still four spaces left in the online food storage class. The in-person one (much less in depth than this) was a lot of fun - I really enjoyed it, and can't wait to get into more detail about food storage. That class concentrated almost entirely on bulk purchasing and dry grains, but I'm looking forward to getting into preserving your own and a host of other things. So if you were hoping to join, but presuming the class was full up, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll also be putting up preliminary materials for those following along online next week. I'm looking forward to the blog conversations we'll have about this.
2. So only a short time after I premiered my latest blog, I'm shutting it down - and this one too. But that doesn't mean I'm going to stop blogging (give up my rantings - never!). After I premiered Depletion-Abundance, an online friend of mine, Deb, kindly emailed me to say that she thought the site sucked ;-).
Note: Edited to correct - Deb didn't actually say it sucked. She said it reminded her of oatmeal - but I thought this was funnier. But I don't want to give anyone the impression that she was rude - far from it.
But she had a cure for this - she offered to help me set up a brand new website that would cover blog, books, and other materials. She wouldn't even take my firstborn son in return - so I hope she'll take my profuse public thanks!
So Deb has designed a gorgeous new site for me, and kicked my behind into taking it seriously. She's been working like a dog on it, and I'll be premiering the site sometime next week. All the material from here will be available there (link coming), including the older archived posts from both sites. Plus there will be new material. In the meantime, there probably won't be many new blog posts in the next few days, as we transfer stuff over. Bear with us - it should be a short term problem.
I'll put up an announcement when the time comes, but I just wanted you to know that it is in the offing.
