Unicorns are awesome. You're awesome. You are therefore a unicorn. Don't let anyone tell you differently. Yes, $1 can make a difference - have you ever been $1 short at the gas station?

For $1/month, you get my thanks and a virtual hug. :)

Because ads kind of suck. Ad-free posts are marked Patron in the title.




In 2010, I decided to get OFF social assistance and learn how to be self reliant ... while still recovering from brain surgery to remove a tumour! It turned out that a lot of people wanted the same thing. (Become more self reliant, not have brain surgery)

Since then I've published a scratch cooking, homesteading cookbook that is used around the world, and built up Just Plain Living - a blog full of practical information about creating a life that is both sustainable and self-reliant.

We're now working at renovating a 130-year-old house and raise four young children. Those welfare days seem far in the past.

In 2018, I'm adding Patreon to the mix - patrons will receive access to larger reports, ebooks, special posts, and other goodies that are not available to the regular ad-supported readers.

Right now there's just one tier of membership and it gives you access to ad-free posts on my blog. AND a good feeling that you're helping to support a writer you enjoy.
