greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Readers Digest.Back to the Basics. How To Learn and Enjoy Traditional American Skills....... Excellent coverage of everything from building your log home ,making rustice furniture, building a green house, soap and candle making, building livestock and poultry houses, butchering, how to milk a cow or goat, growing and perserving food, root cellers, windmills, how to make home brew, pest control, herbs and a whole lot more. I picked this one and Carla Emery's book up at the local library and both are excellent reference material.

In Grandmother's Day A Legacy of recipes, remedies, and country wisdom from 100 years ago by Jean Cross.

I found a Back to the Basics book a few months ago. Great book. Would recommend it highly!

How odd. My copy of "Back to the Basics" just arrived tonight from Amazon. Have only thumbed through it but looks very good.

We got our copy of "Best of the Basics" based on the reccomendations of you all, and find it perfect. Thanks for all the help and the support with our preparations to those who are helping via this forum.

By the way, can anyone tell me why the last few words of my posts are usually cut off? Inquiring minds want to know.
