    No one 'round these parts is interested, it seems. There's a group in a town 30 minutes away that is focused on energy conservation/alternate energy and is encouraging some of the old skills, like gardens and backyard hens, and I volunteered to be a garden mentor to first-timers. But no one seems to want to learn how to tap trees, or make soap, or milk a cow, or cure hams & bacon, or shear a sheep...I hate the idea that all this knowledge will die with me. Wish I knew how to share it.........
    Well, sure, I don't mind revealing my other identity. But wouldn't if be fun to see if you all could guess it first? Sounds like bmc is hot on the trail already. But if you just want to do it the stodgy way, I'll tell you without the guessing game part. What do you all say?

    I agree, Islander. What a pity that more people don't want to learn the incredibly practical skills you have. I don't understand that. They should be willing to pay you to teach them! Who knows when the day might come that skills like that will be worth more than just about anything anybody else has? I'll bet there is a way...now you've got me thinking...

    I think this is very true. We need to start looking backwards for some of our health issue answers. Those people from generations past didn't get here by mistake. It's one of the reasons my DH and I started looking into ethnobotany.

    Let the medical fraud industry look forward - they're making little progress in most areas (and most of the population doesn't even notice their ineptness), but they are making money hand over fist and I guess that's what they're most concerned with.

    I don't spend much time on V V now Pattypans therefore I wouldn't even know where to start in the guessing game.

    Oh, Man! I always assumed that you were Megan from Florida. Silly me. Anyway, glad you're here! I just gave you a thumbs-up somewhere else, but I forget just where.
    I used to give the whole team here a thumbs-up for everything. I have to be a bit more careful now because a sudden 4-point jump is so obvious. But I try.

    Sort of like I thought Reesacat was a cat, and Maine an Island? (facetious font on)

    Thank you, Islander and Maurya, for the welcome! It's great to be here.

    Pattypans, ya gotta keep up posting on "that other site", as there are fewer and fewer sane people over there.

    Jane, she did reply, shortly after I posted that. Yes, she cares for young special needs children 12 hours a day. In fact, I don't know how she found the time to be so active here. Sadly, she felt she was not appreciated and decided to leave the forum. I don't think she even came back to read my PM encouraging her to stay.
