1. Given the media intensity given to the Covid 19 (otherwise known as Corona or Wuhan) virus, there seems no reason to have posts on that very specific subject in several forums Accordingly, all of those posts will be moved to "Headlines". All new items on that subject should be posted there as well. This notice will expire on 31 May, or be extended if needed. Thanks, folks.

    Just picked up the latest issue April/May, was very refreshing to see it had gone back to just Simple and Sustainable Living. 20 years ago it and HarrowSmith were the only source of Back to Nature (read:survival) Living. Slowly the magazine became radical, almost socialist in it's editorials. It's well worth looking at again.

    I may have to pick up a new issue to check out for the sake of their former glory if nothing else.

    Backwoodshome is much better than that liberal treehugging rag! May have good articles, but I cant stand all the save the world shit that goes with it.

    Sorry, just cranky.

    That's just it, no B.S. Hell I knew things were different when I saw the full page advertisement for Natural Tobacco Cigarettes. Al Gore must have been removed from the Editorial Staff.

    get a subscription...you will be amazed. Its very libertarian and isn't a glossy magazine that has all of the CFC type paper that doesn't burn well with all the rest of the garbage that goes in the 55 gallon burn barrel. In fact plastic bottles, bags, styrofoam, and other assorted burnables are released into their gaseous form well before the mother earth news is. Therefore, it takes less wood (a renewable resource) to burn up the man made products than it does paper.

    So, I release these into the atmosphere and the come down as rain, over millions and billions of years (yawn, yawn) they eventually become oil again and the cycle repeats. NOW THAT IS RECYCLING.
