Default ...and yet another new Virginian here

Greetings...from a long time reader, short time lurker, and brand new member.

I have been working toward a more self-sustainable lifestyle for years. 2008 was a huge step in progress for me and I am hoping that 2009 will even bring me closer to my goal. My daughter and I raise sheep, broilers, turkeys and heirloom veggies and herbs on our little place in Central VA. Not off the grid yet, but that is most definitely a goal of mine.

It is a pleasure to meet so many folks who appreciate and understand the same types of values and lifestyle that I do. (The rest just think I'm a nutjob, of course!)

Mary

You're right. People forget that we don't really want to be right.

Even if we ARE nutjobs, at least we're in good company!

Thanks, again, for the warm welcome.
