  1. Homesteading and gardening
    This might be a project people would like. I wanted a simple border fence for my small yard and had some of those landscape timbers just laying around and a customer gave me some more so I made a simple hitching post fence to go in front of the cabin. It is designed for looks but could be...

    Now this is so exciting for us. Our ds started in an Apprenticeship program last July, after grade 10. Trades are often overlooked as a viable career, but since he was completely undecided about what he wanted to do, there was NO way I wanted him in University trying to find his way, the debt...

    I know I have posted more than the 6 times it is showing...does it depends on the kind of post? Does it have to be a thread started by myself to count as one post? Just wondering...thanks! Janine

    Now that we are getting ready to move into our awesome new apartment, I've mentioned on Facebook the whole thing: "we're apartment hunting!" "we found an apartment!" "we signed a lease" "we're painting on Monday" etc. So naturally quite a few people have posted "can't wait to see photos!"...

    I was in training on Ft. Jackson when Saddam Hussein was captured. I will never forget the atmosphere on post as the news spread. It was joyful, giddy, and hopeful. I'm curious as to what the atmosphere is like where you are stationed now that Osama has been killed.

    I subscribe to the "Simple Dollar" and was inspired today by a post about living like no one else, so I thought I would share: The Simple Dollar “Live Like No One Else So You Can Live Like No One Else”
  18. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I'm going to be single for the entire month of April, and during these times I like to go broke and pay down a bunch of debt because it's a lot easier to do without the man around.

    Since a lot of us are going to, or are already getting hit, post some photos of the snow. Maybe put a yard stick in the deepest drift or how deep it is compared to a car, a dog or whatever. Got snow already? Post a picture of before the storm and after. Get those camera's out and be creative!!
