"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

Continuing the introduction of new friends to old friends, please won't you join me in welcoming two new friends.

Firstly, welcome to Gerhard van Zyl - he does not appear to have a blog yet, but is, I'm guessing, from South Africa.
Secondly, please also welcome Redloon.  Judging by her gravatar she enjoys knitting.  Redloon describes herself as being: "5ft 6 inches tall, half Pakastani / half Lebanese, her eyes are hazel and she has light coloured skin.  She is addicted to crochet work and loves cooking and travelling."

Gerhard and Redloon, thank you for following my blog.  I reply to all comments (even those placed on old postings), but given the size of this wonderful planet, and the different time zones, it may not be today by your time, but will certainly be by tomorrow.  And, if I am on the farm it may take a little longer...LOL


Post a Comment

Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day and removes the "loneliness' of sitting at my screen blogging supposedly to myself ;) I try and reply as quickly as possible so please forgive me if sometimes my response is delayed.
