    Comments on Tightwaddery were supposed to be about the How to Pinch a Penny.

    Having gone through alot of these steps myself it seems sometimes that attaining the frugal lifestyle can seem an insurmountable task, especially for someone from a city mindset heading for a less than complicated existance.

    I just thought it might be helpful to give them a starting point with a few easier steps top set their feet on the road.

    If my comments angered anyone I am truly sorry. Commenting on anothers writing touches alot of hot buttons. I am only trying to review the oddments section as I understood I was supposed to do.

    In one discussion there is a reference to a husband "Mike". It might be good to add a comment {former, ex, etc} just for clarity sake.


    What is a tightwad :

    Felt to me like a lecture rather than a how to. It might be a good addition to put in following this article something like this: A Road Map to Tightwaddery with a brief list of how tos.

    I did not see any reference to Amy Dacyczyn's Tightwads Gazette - available from Amazon.com for $13.99

    Complete Tightwad Gazette
    Amy Dacyczyn
    ISBN: 0375752250
    Format: Paperback, 959pp
    Pub. Date: January 1999 Publisher: Random House,

    If Carla is, as we will all agree the Queen of Country Living, I would probably put Amy as Queen of Tightwadery

    If it was there and I missed it just ignore my comments.

    Wonderful advice, also, Sharon! I do have a little on Permaculture at the beginning of the Tree chapter 9th and in the beginning of the Intro to Plants chapter, 10th. I've been rather put off by them because they're so expensive. Never have taken the course from anybody. Your advice on getting by giving is indeed sound!
    Gratefully,
    Carla

    The absolute best book I've ever seen for nutritional information is in 'Laurel's Kitchen', the 1970's classic of vegetarian cooking. This is by Laurel Robertson & was re-published in 1986 as The New Laurel's Kitchen. It's available from the usual used book web sites. This info takes up about 26 pages of tiny print, so it may be better to refer to this book than to find space to re-publish that much info.

    oh, wow...ask Greg O. and you shall receive! But I only list the colleges that have programs in ALTERNATIVE/ORGANIC type agriculture. Is that true of ALL those you name?

    None of them offer exclusively organic/alternative courses, but all have at least one course of this type. Many have it has a postgraduate course, but a number are introducing undergraduate and short course versions as well.

    Anne, thanks for the updating on those magazines!

    Greg, I went ahead and made a selection from the vast supply you provided. Trimmed it by about half according to how organic they sounded. What a great addition for the international 10th!
    Gratefully,
    Carla

    I hope I'm not being redundant, but here goes:

    Oddments chapter, page 21. Correct website is www.foxfire.org, not foxfire.com.

    Page 28: Michigan State U ag website: www.canr.msu.edu/agtech/

    Page 44: Old Mill Mercantile: webiste no longer good, checked web yellow pages, company may not be around anymore

    website: www.nopowernoproblem.com not working

    Page 47: www.ibt.et/ramco same as above

    Terry, if you're working from a 9th edition, don't bother. That contact info is from 1993. If you're working from the printout of the 10th edition that I sent you, then I'm very grateful for the input. I checked all the contact info back in the first 6 months of 2002, but there are over 1500 contacts described in the book and something or other is always changing. Very hard to keep up with...

    Terry...I think I got your file mixed up with somebody else's and sent you the wrong chapters. I see I've sent you Poultry, Oddments, and Grains (sent 5-29-03). I should have sent you Vegetables, Herbs, and Grains. Well, at least, I have gotten one right so far. I'll send out Herbs and Vegetables to you within the next few days.
