Kyler,  I have sent you a friend request. 

I have a studio upstairs to rent in my home in Ferndale for $400 / mo, includes utilities & internet.  iIt's 2 blocks from the WTA busline.  My 28 year old son and I live downstairs. We are a gardeming, sustainable musical community on my land, Fern Hollow.  Please send me a message on TW if you are interested.  I am also interested in barter exchange for various carpentry tasks around our property.  Thanks, Terese

Hi my name is Kyler Boyes. I will be looking for a place to live in Bellingham around the end of June. I pay about $500.00 per month now for housing, utilities, and internet. I am hesitant to pay more until I get more income or reduce expenses in some way.

About me: I am a pretty quiet 27yr old male who does well with a good amount of privacy. I am very helpful and work at respecting others needs any way I can. I have skills in residential house framing if that could be a partial trade. Thanks.

The fellow who taught the Chicken class at the Co-op (Farley) said the way to stop broody behavior is to put them in a screened cage with no bottom and hang the cage up... this unusual and uncertain perch eventually breaks them from brooding. This technique might not be agreeable to you, though.

HELP!!!!  I have a very dedicated broody hen who needs someone who wants to raise their own chicks!  I do not have the space/facility or time to do it myself, so I would gladly give her to whoever wants a broody hen.  She is a year old laying Austrolorp, and has a lovely personality, and she will make an excellent mother hen.  If you are interested please contact me ASAP.  Also, if someone on this site could also put a notice on the Facebook Chicken Club about her I would be grateful.  Alys

Earthen ovens are thick walled to retain the heat of the fire which is cleaned out before baking, food is cooked as the heat is released into the chamber, the slow release of the heat creates a unique texture to breads calazones pizzas and other baked goods.   Earthen ovens have been part of village life for centuries, people would congregate to bake their loaves in communal ovens, meals were prepared and shared around these mounds worldwide, come be a part of the wood fired oven experience.

Yeah, 12 of us got oil presses.  End cost $95, so far I've used it for hazelnut oil with good results and I heard one of our group had some trouble trying to process flax.  No tarriff, tax, or duty.

Did any thing ever become of the oil press???
