It's like a time capsule of radical 60's and 70's thinking about living. Plus plans for bat houses. And PDFs of 1974's How to Build Your Own Living Structures.

"She was a Socialist, a Feminist, a movie critic, and a tell-it-like-it-is type of person. She learned English by going to theaters, which she loved. She wore a men's jacket, men's shoes and a large hat most of the time. She was constantly taking pictures, which she didn't show anyone."

(Tsia) Wed, 26 May 2010 10:09:00 Sweater magic Sometimes sweaters can be trimmed with no adverse consequences. A sort of splice here: the turtleneck part of a light merino sweater was neatly snipped off just above the neck seam. The severed piece was ideal for fashioning two <a href="">sleeve extensions</a> -- thumb holes and reattachment optional.
