Re: Favorite books on self-sufficiency

Finrock The Personal Storehouse project is a multi-pronged approach to self-sufficiency. It covers financial security, educational needs, health, mental health, in addition to having food storage. The idea is to take a holistic approach to self-sufficiency. So while it is true the focus is not going...

Re: Favorite books on self-sufficiency

Our ward was an early trial location for the Church's Pathways program. Last Sunday, our Bishop gave us a pep talk encouraging those who might benefit from the Pathways program to consider signing up this year.

Re: British "Socialist" former Mayor of London's Explaination of Venezuela's problem

Robin Hood,

I guess, I could comment on what idiots Londoners were for electing him, but then I look at some of the idiots we elect, and think that that would be the pot calling the kettle black :)
