    We've been giving this a lot of thought lately, even though we have a few years to go before retirement. For us, a new community has to be large enough to provide all the services we need without us having to drive very far to reach them, while at the same time, it has to be small enough for us...

    I think my jaw dropped when I started reading this, and I had to forcefully clamp it shut in a thin lined grimace of disgust over the attitude of some people. Planet S Magazine “Do I need to fear for my children’s safety and my property with the types of people this store is going to bring...

    If you haven't been nosy enough to find this out yet, click on the community tab and scroll down to Meet our Staff. Very nice way to get to know our founders and moderators.

    So the flash mob Hallelujah Chorus thread titled Christmas treat and the post in it about another Hallulujah chorus in a Random acts of Culture series Started me wondering is there are "random acts of culture" in your community or cultured events you can attend without paying for a ticket...
  6. Homesteading and gardening
    The first time I went to see my plot, it was totally underwater. After digging some trenches and waiting a week it was dry enough to plant. The soil seemed great. I didn't amend it at all, as I thought the city did that, I didn't have anything to amend it with and no muscle to go buy big bags...

    Is it just me or are the pickings slim at the community wide yard sales??? We just had ours this week (thu-fri-sat) and you know what? I'm not even going to bother going to any of them tomorrow.

    I just wanted to say how much I enjoy being part of this community and appreciate the kindness that is offered here every day. I am a member of several online communities, and I can't tell you how many times I've seen people gang up on others just to be mean. Just today, a woman joined a weight...
  13. Homesteading and gardening
    I have a square foot garden at home, 6 boxes. Our yard is very shaded and we have had to take down many trees in order to get some sun for a garden. We don't want to take down many more, plus they are all 60 feet or taller, so it would be tricky. I still will garden here, but I really, really...

    What would you suggest if I wanted to get my kids involved in helping the community? They're 4 and 7. We don't really know many people around here, so helping out an individual person or family really isn't an option until we actually meet someone who needs it, you know? Most places like the...

    So, I was driving through my town today and was thinking about how much I love living here. So, it got me to thinking that maybe I'd ask all of you why you are proud of where you live. What's unique about it? What keeps you there? Anything interesting or weird about your town? My town is...

    I sat down to do my menu planning this week with normal cookbooks and was coming up short. Every thing we've liked we've eaten lately. So I flipped on the computer and hit the FV cookbook! It was such a helpful tool in meal planning! I'm so excited (and thankful) to have it! Keep adding...
