I'm sorry that I've been distracted and haven't been able to post much to the forum, much less work on new articles for the front page wordpress site. But, I've decided to say a few words about some projects I'm involved in. This is somewhat connected to an off-topic drift of the discussion in the "mainstream views of Jesus" thread, and relates to Marcilla's question about what the FSM wants us to do with our life. I'm not sure if I'm hearing the FSM correctly or not. Maybe the FSM would prefer if I just would keep my nose to the grindstone here. But, this week I've been very pressed for time because of flareups at these projects. www.vedrica.org This is a 270-acre project in Idaho near Weippe, which is currently undergoing a schism between the "Circle" faction and the "LLC" faction. I'm in the LLC faction, and I think we hold all the cards, but it's very dramatic. www.zaniyan.org I'm on the board of this nonprofit. We're trying to arrange to buy QuestionMark Farm, located near downtown in the permaculture zone, as a location for holding classes and housing students. http://lonesome-whistle.myshopify.com We're the landlords here. Working on lot line adjustments and mobile home replacement permits. http://www.fernhillsanctuary.com These are our neighbors at our woodlot in Cottage Grove. They're moving, which has created an easement crisis.
