Re: New member checking in

yup your job is a "module" and your zucchini growing operation would be another module which (hypothetically) could continue independently in the event of job loss ("collapse") or even compensate somewhat for it (eat more homegrown zucchini under money shortages). if "zucchi...

DBT was also a good suggestion. She's been attending group DBT sessions, and I do think that's been helpful too - so thanks a lot for suggesting it, because CBT is definitely the 'standard' doctor's recommendation here (I did CBT myself last year and it was okay-but-not-fundamentally-life-changing)...

Re: New member checking in

And from my undersranding of ERE, I thought that spending less was more of a goal than earning more? it's not really about money in itself ("personal finance"), but more about developing personal economic systems and competencies in loosely connected modules that display tensegrity under ...

Re: Hunting for Food: A Primer

as a meat eater: my experience with canned meats is either sublime or vile: no in between. it's either french charcuterie (eg: rillettes de sanglier) or canned beef from walmart. jerky is always good though, takes little volume, i think the weight equivalence is 1:3. can be eaten as is or rehydrated...

Re: Hunting for Food: A Primer

My plan is to make friends with someone at work who goes hunting regularly so I can bag a deer this Fall/Winter. make sure it's deniro not christopher walken :D i'd trade the shotgun for a rifle though. you can always borrow one anyway, it's not like there's a lack of weapons going on. .223 (with g...

Is this still the recommended procedure for making yogurt in an instapot? Seems simple and just about the amount of effort I'm willing to put in.
