It always amazes me how many people think like I do... or how I think like so many other people. It never seems like it until certain ideas come up, like enjoying "old ways" in reality and not just nostalgia. A thread at the Dollar Stretcher Community about using treadle sewing machines and another about Luddite tendencies helped spawn a new forum called Self Sufficient Living and then... the coolest new blog I've seen in a long time appears! It's from Lehman's, the nonelectric hardware store (that's really a lot more than that), and it covers a LOT of things. If you enjoy hands on living, you'll really like it. The blog is Lehman's Country Life - quite fitting. :)
Of course, I have an entry there, but that's beside the point. ;) I'm kidding. I do have an entry there, but I thoroughly enjoy reading the other entries and I think you will, too.
