Saturday night reading

Recently picked up two great magazines; the American Frontiersman 2014 Complete Survival Guide (Country Almanac Presents #175) and The New Pioneer (Country Almanac Presents #177). Both titles are giving me some good starting points from which to expand both in sound system design requirements for lodging, planting, and tools. What are some of your tried and true publications you turn to for tips and advice?

Posting gap

   Hello once again my frugal friends. First, apologies for the large amount of time since the last sharing of information here on #swampfoxgreen as family duties required my attentions. Long story short those have been resolved and all is well.
   Recent experience has shown me that while well intended my goals were far to narrow in scope. The implementation of sustainable, renewable and frugal practices still needs to take place from the bottom up as we do so in our home lives. Yet loftier objectives need be persued by becoming insistent those we chose to empower by either our votes or purchases realize such changes are required to leave our descendants a better world than we were.
