Re: The Money Plant animations of FIRE concepts

xmj: thanks for posting. It is a clear short presentation of ERE.

Re: Introducing a new forum

It is also how mankind now post-extreme-covid retakes their habits. Which habits has lead not only to this climate change but also to a general low num...

Re: m741's ERE Journal

June, 2021 However, the big news here in the Pacific Northwest was the heat wave. Normally this time of year, it's 50s-60s at night and 70s-80s during the day. It's really beautiful weather, perfect for doing things outdoors and then airing out the house later. During the heat wave, however, we had...

Re: Energy Prepping?

A lot of houses have solar-panels now (here in Europe, I do not know how much elsewhere). Most panels are not stand alone systems but are connected to the existing grid(s) via so called inverters. I have noticed, when there is a hiccup in electricity delivery in the grid, the solar panels-systems ar...

Uggh, it sounds as an almost too strong confrontation with the reality of camper-van living and at the same time coping with a new baby! The best way, may be, to see it as a new period with a lot of fun and freedom and getting new skills of parenting, simple life, living in/near nature and a lot of ...

I have had my first vaccination (pfizer). About 4 days later: rather strong vertigo for 4 other days.
Look like the same as @Frita's husband. Now, 12 days later, it seems to wane.

Yes I would apply too. Because you are only 32 and not satisfied about your work. That is not something to continue for long.
