    Wow. how much disk space does this site have?

    In no particular order

    Finding the Mother Tree – Gaining at least an insight into the importance of not clear-cutting, that trees actually talk to each other, alert each other and actually feed each other via the fungal partners. To the degree they appear to help other species of trees and can not only recognize others of the same species, but appear to be able to “recognize” their own progeny, and are able to divert more to those than others.

    The Black Swan – gaining an insight into the fact that many, if not most of the really revolutionary changes in society, could not have been truly predicted, and remembering, there are no “known” things in science, one data point can blow what is “known” out of the water. for instance, it was once “known” that all swans are white…. until someone found a black swan.

    The Small-Scale Poultry Flock by Harvey Ussery, foreword by Joel Salatin ©2011

    This is a delightful read with cautionary tales, uplifting encouragement and wit and wisdom spawned from decades of being a “flockster”. Must read if you have feather heads, or want to get some. Inspirational and pleasant. I would vote for it twice,if I could🙂

    I read a lot of books on psychology, this science is very interesting to me. But problems arose with the psychological research. When it was necessary to write a paper, I couldn’t do it myself. It’s good that helped me with writing and design. With them it was possible to quickly and easily defend the work with the highest score.

    For a stylish and modern appearance, wear future trunks jacket with black, slim-fit jeans or joggers. For lovers of streetwear, Dragon Ball fanatics, or anybody looking to make a big fashion statement, this outfit is ideal.

    Yes! I am in love with Henry Bowman! I actually wrote a very sappy swooning letter to John, several years back, when he was still with us, and got a short but gracious reply. I could have framed it 😍🥰

    An excellent dystopian future prepped book that has a bunch of prepping ideas is Molon Labe

    (from the Greek response of king Leonidas to the Spartans. The Spartans were attacking the Greeks, and offered them to lay down their weapons and worship the Spartan leader, and no further death would come to them. King Leonidas’ response was Molon Labe…..come and take them)
