Can't go work on the soddy just this second; intense little thunderstorm passing just north at the moment, with wet edges- so I was poking around on the news, and found this. An encyclopedia for simple living.
I haven't dug through it all yet- but so far, I really really like these people and what they're doing. You can buy the books; or get a CD - or- it's all available for free download. Hm. I don't think they're in it for the money.
And they seem very careful about checking and re-checking their information; and about having actually tried everything they write about (so it seems).
And the section of potties has a couple versions that look like the THWASPCO; a little, though mine would be the rolls royce version.
Where did I find it? A tiny note in the New York Times science section, right beside the huge, noisy thing on "are undersea volcanoes REALLY melting the arctic ice!!??". (The answer, astonishingly, is , duh, no.)
So here in the midst of the crumbling world- there are still some good folks- and they're still doing good things- for you and me.
I feel a little better. :-) Just a little; but it helps.
Hank- you're in Berkeley; are these folks as wonderful as they look to be?
