    Weekly Roundup - Living On Nothing Edition Category: Roundups | Comments(15) Did you hear about the guy that lives on nothing? No seriously, he lives on zero dollars a day. Meet Daniel Suelo, who lives in a cave outside Moab, Utah. Suelo has no mortgage, no car payment, no debt of any kind. He also has no home, no car, no television, and absolutely no “creature comforts.” But he does have a lot of creatures, as in the mice and bugs that scurry about the cave floor he’s called home for the last three years. To us, Suelo probably sounds...

    Yahoo ran an interesting article this morning indicating a rise in the number of survivalist communities cropping up around the country. I have been wondering myself how much of the recent energy crisis is causing people to do things like stockpile food and water, grow their own vegetables, etc. Could it be that there are many people out there stockpiling and their increased buying has caused food prices to increase? It’s an interesting theory, but I believe increased food prices have more to do with rising fuel prices as cost-to-market costs have increased and grocers are simply passing those increases...

    Americans finding soaring food prices hard to stomach can battle back by growing their own food. [Click image for a larger version] Dean Fosdick Dean Fosdick Home vegetable gardens appear to be booming as a result of the twin movements to eat local and pinch pennies. At the Southeastern Flower Show in Atlanta this winter, D. Landreth Seed Co. of New Freedom, Pa., sold three to four times more seed packets than last year, says Barb Melera, president.

    Have you ever come across a freeper that you have grown close too? Yes, we all have. FreeRepublic draws us all together. I've grown very close to one specifc freeper. NW_Arizona_Granny. She is so much more than someone I ping or bump. It is as if I've always known her. I have a surreal closeness with her. I can see her and feel her; but I've never met her. NW_AZ is more than a FRiend. She has been my mentor. My best friend for the last few years. But it feels longer. Like she has always been there. Ruth needs...

    The virtual world is so strange. I feel like I've known you all my life; yet I have never met you. No blog, post or email can ever replace a hug. That is what I would rather give you. That is what you need. No text could ever replace the that. Nor is there anything I could write or post that would comfort you right now. I tell you often that I am your friend. But I sit here wondering what kind of friend am I when I can't even be there for you. You have helped so many and...
