State of Living

As you know by now, I'm "blown away" with mankind's ways of living; cooking /
cleaning / farming / homes....you name it.  I got on early white American life / early
England / viking times...Chinese...you name it.  Things done then that today's modern time
makes easy...at the cost of monthly bills and constant paying work to live "easy" 
really, a form of slavery if you think of it. Always worried about your job / a job...to
pay.

Not that back then things were "easy", no, they too required sun up to sun down
labor. Not easy at  all...yet FAR MORE REWARDING. What YOU did, was YOURS. Not put
out to some big corporation. Aho?
Oh how I wish I were healed and do things of then today. Not...but CAN        
advise...or wet your interest???
ONE ACRE of land...what a TREASURE to have.  ONE ACRE.
We've 19 1/2....a 10 and  a 9 1/2 section(s).
Just a wk ago we found out...do to 'elder' age...our land taxes can be greatly reduced.
Did you know this?

My domes cost near zero. Small...easy to heat and can be made larger if wanted.
Aussy Dave has turned us onto building with pressed earth bricks.  FREE  but for the
labor.

We once had an oxen....used to bring in firewood logs. Ate it eventually. Try THAT
with a TRACTOR!

Raised chickens / geese / rabbits and ducks. Killed to eat during winter. Started
again in spring. Sold a few for cash needed. Never spent a PENNY on feed. Grazed
them...free food.

We use rain from our roof or most of our water needs...trade labor at a neighbor if
'dry'. Cleaning her small barn and used the house dropping in our garden.

Awhile back I stopped using our electric pump and now totally hose spinning for our house needs.
NO MORE FROZEN PUMP SINCE. THIS HAS MADE US MORE WATER CONSERVATIVE AS WELL. As well
as lower electric bills.

Due to my wife's long commute job...we have a car. Also a truck. The truck used
barely...about twice, or heavy loads only. Less fuel now. By FAR. 
THERE ARE EASILY A HUNDRED WAYS TO CONSERVE...EVEN MORE IF IN A Do it Yourself mode.
DON'T DEPEND ON A FINANCIAL COMEBACK!   AT NOT A long one at least.

If and when you can, get some LAND.  ONE ACRE and knowledge can feed and house you.  YES IT CAN!  

Up to you,  friend.  good luck and God Bless
