Just finished reading through the May/June issue of Back Home Again Magazine. I really enjoy this magazine and it gives the feeling of the old MENS. In fact, I believe they are still publishing in the old MENS building in NC Actually stopped buy a couple of years back to say "HI" to them when I was there. Well..they have an article on a young family.. the Gonsalves from Maine and building their straw bale house etc. It was so very nice to hear about a young familygetting "back to the land" and doing with their life what they choose and not what the world makes us do. Their ambition and youth I certainly envy. After homesteading ourselves for 25 years I think back to when we began and my heart aches for those times...but realize we have come a long way too. I wish this family the very best and wrote to the magazine and asked them to keep up updated on their progress. Has anyone else read this issue..??
