    Hi all! I'm a long time gardener and science teacher looking forward to living more sustainably through homesteading. Who else out there is from New England?? Looking for some moral support getting through the rest of the winter! :D

    Hello and welcome from S. W. Oregon, also a long way from Mass, being an "island of good folks." is a great way to put it, we all need an island with good folks to get away from all the junk that's going on in this world and this is certainly one of those islands, happy to see you here!

    I'm about an hour inland from Gloucester, a very lovely area, but no I haven't been to the Wren's Nest! I should go sometime though.

    Hi ZS. I'm in SE VT. Far as moral support for winter goes, I can at least express my opinion that it's been an easy one temperature-wise so far, and we can expect it to get warmer, starting in a few weeks. Just have to avoid cabin fever, and that's easier nowadays too.

    A whole passel of "good ol' folks'" around this place [they do piss & moan some, but don't tell 'em I said so].

    Welcome, from Colorado!

    Your page looks very different from mine. Responses look different. Any idea how I can make mine look more like yours?

    Late to the party but you have a welcome from the SE corner of Washington (the state).
    I have a "daughter" who resides in Maine. She seems to like it.
