It bears no resemblance to a conventional cemetery site; instead, it is a sanctuary of natural beauty. Pr...

Re: Growing Food for $0

Get to know some local gardeners - all gardening depends on local conditions. The best way to garden on one area is going to fail in another. Watering, raised beds or not, varieties to grow, when to plant, what to plant - all vary immensely. Often gardeners will share surplus plants, seeds, supplies...

Re: What aspects of today's society will we be ashamed of in sixty years?

In a situation such as the nuns in Tuam, a question is: why did no one say anything? Easy to think that each of us would speak up if we knew. But would we, would you?

Re: Ending Relationships with Persistent Humans

This: a harsh rejection or period of no contact that one side actually enforces no matter what the other party says.

Bring a navigator.
Frequent stops.
Drive it around the block a few times to get a feel for the vehicle. You want to be sure of yourself at 55 mph.
