    Thanks for your words. Yeah, I make peanuts, too -- and unfortunately, the editors stuck me in real estate where I have to sing the praises of builders and developers. I have stomach aches constantly. But I have 3 more years until my youngest, my Claire -- an A+ student who loves her friends and school -- graduates. That's why I am trying to stick it out. I just don't know if I can -- physically, emotionally, and otherwise I am dying. Getting involved in local politics might help. It could also kill me.

    I see the best price on Fukuoka's book (One Straw) is on ebay. I think I should buy it.

    Where do you live? (Just curious) Are you going to Yearly Kos? I live near Chicago in northwest Indiana -- if you need a place to sleep, I have plenty of space.

      and I'll take you up on that sleeping place.

      1. I have two plans: one is to brig broadband to rural america. I know how to do it and it is big. It must go through rural coops set up by FDR as they are freer to act on innovative decision making. It is not going to cost the rural coops anything as I have figured out how to do it. Just the labor of installation which is about two days. I am tryig to do it here first and I just met a couple that I think I can work with here. Interested? I'll email you the secret details.
      1. I have a way to deliver an hour and a half talk to a group of minimum wage workers on what an IRA and compound interest can do for them. Art Wiliams build an 8 billion dollar company on this info which for some reason keeps getting lost in a closet for people. Will email you this also. Panera Bread company is interested here in Springfield and from there I want all the Paneras and then Wal-Mart. Along the way the supermarkets.

      I really need like minds to work with as I am stagnant here and my ideas just sit.

      I did real estate in Phila and had a million worth (can you imagine waht it's worth 15 years later in now time?)and lost it through betrayal.

      I am abbeysbooksatyahoodotcom. I live near Springfield MO. In a neon red town. Now got to get ready to defend myself in court over my garden this afternoon. If you email me I'll tell you how it went tonight.

      And you are a beautiful writer. Have you read Robbe-Grillet's Labyrinthe and his Jealousy?

      says Fukuoka can be downloaded free from libraries in India and Australia. Can we do it from the US?

      I can lend you mine and send it to you.
