Carrie speaks to you the way a good neighbor would - after a few glasses of wine. Real, sensible and often hilarious, she shares the happenings in her life in a way that would resonate with anyone.
I keep an eye out for anything new from John Titus. John exposes the real economic numbers and banking trends that explain what we're all feeling in our wallets. Using elaborate graphs and spreadsheets, he shows us the clear, best evidence. Then, quite generously, he breaks down what all that %#@$ means in layman's terms. What a treasure.
Sensible Medicine's latest blog, "I just want to work on my car" inspires me to recommend them as medical professionals that are asking all the right questions. Too often people trust in their doctors blindly, believing the medical profession has their best interest at heart when, in reality, most doctors have their own careers and professional acceptance at the forefront of their decision making when it comes to their patients. Nice to hear a doctor finally admit this out loud.
As of writing this recommendation, I can only wish there were more of her posts to read. A poetic take on the struggles and rewards of a life lived close to the bone and even closer to the earth. We're rooting for you, Shepherdess!
Amy Jay is making lists, checking them twice, and knocking things out. Hers is a genuine look at off-grid life from the perspective of a capable woman who's not afraid of trial and error. If I had to be stranded on a frozen mountaintop in British Columbia, I'd want her on my team.
I always learn something from Ashley and it's always fun. Whether she's showing me how to make wine from dandelions or sharing a video of ducklings going down a waterslide, Ashley keeps it personal, useful, and from the heart.
I eagerly anticipate each of Tara's posts, as she shares her hard worn wisdom from years of rich experience merging closer with the earth. Her family tackles the encroaching darkness wearing an elegantly simple suit of armor, woven from beauty, love and a deep faith in God. I'm rooting for this family.
A vibrant perspective on off-grid life from Nova Scotia, this author shares insights that are both specific to his region and relevant to a wider audience. An interesting and educational read for anyone thinking of going off-grid.
