Today I went to Barnes and Noble to spend several hours which is what I do when life gets too overwhelming for me. Reading is a mental emotional poultice for me. I was surprised and interested to see a new magazine as titled above. $9.95! It has a LOT of very good topics. I was especially interested in the articles on knives and machetes but there. Were some about a bug-out bag and others which were so interesting I almost broke down and bought the magazine. The appearance is poor. It's the most low grade paper I have ever seen any publication printed on. Layiout is legible but mediocre. Anyway, check it out. Whoever published the magazine worked real hard to come up with useful topics. It's written simply, not all syrupy like - well, I better not say. Don't want to demean other publications!
They also had a copy of "Possum Living." I read that about 40 years ago. It had a really BIG effect on my thinking and choices so I was real glad to see it back in print with a chapter in the back written by the same person only older, married, a parent!
I saw that magazine today, too! I was looking for the recent issue of Mary Jane's Farm and picked up a copy of it to flip through. I admit I put it back because of the price and because of how "unfluffy" it was. I guess I should go back and get it.
The world is a magical, mystical, amazingly wonderful place, full of people just looking for a reason to be offended.
I've seen it, too, but draw the line at paying $10 for a magazine. Before long, I'm sure most magazines will be $10 or more, and I'll stop buying them. There's too much info available free on-line these days.

I suppose it is wicked, but I sat there in barnes and noble for about five hours, reading books and magazines. I am a kind of junkie that way so I think of it as getting my fix. I really intended to buy a copy of the ball canning book but it was almost $25! I know my old copy is around here somewhere but it's buried under the avalanche of other books.
There is a lot of information on the internet but give me a good book any day!!! Or magazine.
We got it too but didnt look at the price and almost had a stroke when it was wrung up. I enjoyed some of the articles but I thought it was kind of disjointed and I like Countryside a lot better. I doubt I would buy it again unless there was a specific article that grabbed my attention.
