This new home is the book, the pages are the days to come and my life are the words.
Is that magazine worth getting? I found a subscription form in the mail for it.
Max,For me personally, I like the magazine very much. I love old recipes and many other aspects of country living, and old ways. I subscribe to MEN, Countryside, Grit, Mary Jane organic magazine, and Mother Earth Living. And anything else that pertains to herbals and gardening.
Max, I think Countryside & Small Stock Journal is a great magazine. It you want to check out the website it will give you a taste of the kind of artices in the magazine.http://www.countrysidemag.com/issues/97/toc-97-1.htmlHave a great homesteader day. You too denimflyz.
Vicki, after reading this article about life in the 1800s, I am ever so grateful to be living in the 21 century. I did have a taste of the country life with outside toilets and washtub bathing until I was eight years old. I really appreciate that I can have a nice hot shower and flush toilets with plumbing which is a great improvement over the alternative. I'm glad that I don't have to think about survival every day and can enjoy life a lot more than back in the early days of settling the midwest. As I look back through all the things that has happened to me during my life time, at no point did I have it as bad as those in the early 1800s. I actually knew my great grandfather and great grandmother who were alive and participated in the Oklahoma land rush period. It didn't really work out for them and the eventually returned to Nebraska.Have the best day that you can.
DaveI appreciate the old ways, as my grandparents were Amish, and left to persue other ventures, but kept their old ways. My granddad was an electrician, and wired most of central and west central Nebraska when REA came in during the depression. He left the colony through Rumspringa and never looked back.I also appreciate the 20th and 21st century with its easier lifestyle, but I think that we have too much and we are soft in our ways and thinking. Its nice to slow down.I found the article interesting, so I posted it.Have a great January day, as you say.
