I'm Not Dead!

I actually got an email asking me this recently.  I swear, I'm OK!  I haven't been sick or injured or anything... just internet-less.  Heads up for anyone about to move- you can't just call the cable company in Arizona and get service the next day, it turns out!

Long story short- we moved on March 1st into our temporary house while we wrap things up in Arizona before heading up to Chico.  I called on March 2nd to get the cable and internet turned on, thinking we'd have real internet and cable by the end of the week!  Yeah... not so much.  MARCH 18th!  That's when we got internet and cable!  2.5 weeks is RIDICULOUS, in my opinion, but since we are at the mercy of the one and only cable company that services our area there wasn't much we could do.

I have a ton to get caught up on!  I have some great giveaways coming up like Simple Green, Healthy Options of Days Gone By, and Skin MD Natural!  I would like to apologize to these and all of my other sponsors for being out of touch for so long.  I honestly have never experienced such a busy company that they make you wait over two weeks for services so I didn't prepare to not have internet during this time.

And to my readers... house updates are starting in just TWO MONTHS!  We're starting with insulation.   Thrilling.  I know.  :)

To insulate the walls of our 60-year-old house, we used water-based foam from a company called Polymaster. It was the consistency of shaving cream, and set up like Styrofoam. We cut the holes through the inside walls, since they all needed cosmetic repair anyway, and we did not want to compromise the existing old growth vertical tongue and groove cedar siding. It does shrink some when it sets, but much better than before insulation. That was done about 12 years ago. We are now 14 years into our 10 year plan….

Recently I wrote a blog entry offering a leftist critique of the ideology of "Green" environmentalism, animal rights activism, eco-friendliness, and lifestyle politics in general (veganism, "dumpster diving," "buying organic," etc.). I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the matter and any responses you might have to its criticisms.
