Dateline: 9 January 2015
Well, so much for my idea of “Deliberate Agrarian Lite,” which I announced late last year. I guess I’m not capable of being brief. So I’ll blog as I have been, blogging and when I get overwhelmed, I’ll just take another month off.
January and February are very slow months for my Planet Whizbang business (so it’s easier to find time to blog). I still ship mail orders out every single day but not in large numbers. Ricky, my mail man, appreciates this time of year too.
Things start to pick up in March and take off from there. We thoroughly enjoy the downtime. It’s a season for updating my web sites, building up product inventory, dreaming, and doing some creative projects.
Here’s a few odd things that I find interesting, and you might too...
The Deliberate Agrarian
Is A Top Prepper Web Site (?)
While I don’t present this blog as a “prepper” web site, it is, apparently, interpreted as such. I recently found it mentioned in Michael Snyder’s Get Prepared: 122 of The Best Prepper Web Sites on the Internet.
I posted a picture of a painting by Dale NIchols awhile back. That picture led me to a nice 5-minute YouTube clip about him and his art. Here is the link: The Forgotten Artist: A Nebraska Story
Pastoral Symphony &
Wringer Washing Machine
I have added a new blog to my list of agrarian bloggers (on the right side of this page). Check out Pastoral Symphony and, in particular, be sure to read The Economics of Laundry, which had me looking for old wringer washing machines on Craig’s List. They are out there, and they are still working, and they are reasonably priced.
Granny Miller’s blog is back and she has a new studio shed that is simply beautiful. It has me thinking that I need another shed (for my business) and that it doesn’t need to look like just another shed. Click Here to see what I mean.
Also, “Granny” has a new photo blog at The Homestead Daily.
