Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow
It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it. More than living simply, more than living 'green', thrifty grandmas knew the importance of the 'economics' in Home Economics. The history of home ec, lessons in thrift, practical tips and ideas from the past focused on sustainability for families and out planet. Companion to http://www.thingsyourgrandmotherknew.com/

The one video everyone on this planet needs to see.

 

"Humans, over thousands of years, had never been able to deal with Nature's complexity. But we biologists and ecologists had never tackled anything as complex as this.

 

So rather than reinvent the wheel, I began studying other professions to find out if anybody had. And I found that there were planning techniques that I could take and adapt to our biological need and from those I developed what we call holistic management and planned grazing, a planning process. And that does address all of Nature's complexity *and* our social, environmental, economic complexity..."

"... An extraordinarily collection of rarely seen photographs capturing Alaska's Eskimos document the hard but persevering survival of the people commonly known as the hunters of the Arctic.

Photographed between 1909 and 1932, the collection offers a rare glimpse in the natives' everyday life from hunting polar bears, to building igloos, to their personal dwellings inside.

Standing with bow and arrows and hand, a hunter photographed in 1924 proudly poses before his kill of a massive polar bear, resting more than twice his size along the snow, arrows protruding from its chest.

The Fourth Phase Of Water - What You Don’t Know About Water… And Really Should

The Fourth Phase Of Water - What You Don’t Know About Water… And Really Should | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow | Scoop.it

Respected health researcher Dr. Mercola interviews Dr. Gerald Pollack, PhD about the new discoveries being called “The Fourth Phase Of Water”, beyond solid, liquid and vapor.

Allen David Reed's curator insight, November 14, 2013 9:57 PM

----------------------------------

It has been well known by the truly ‘awake ones’ over the millennia of time that water is crucial to life.  In fact, as Dr. Pollack points out, it is core to life.  Any intelligent Being would immediately see that there must be a reason for this, rather than dismiss water out of hand as some meaningless substance, as most of our ‘post modern’ scientists now do.

 

Water is consciousness - at least the form of water Dr. Pollack is speaking of - and this is a taboo subject in today’s commercial world of life-robbing sugar soda and fluoride.  If you step back and connect the dots, and understand the agenda by some to harness you like a battery as was made popular in the movie “The Matrix”, you will quickly get that you’re being sold down the proverbial river of ‘da-nile’, that is, until you choose to be Sovereign in your BEINGHOOD.

 

As I discuss in BEINGHOOD - Book One, water is love, water is the carrier of memory, water is intelligent, water is alive, and living water (until you kill it as we mostly do now in our modern plumbing and microwave ovens) is a crucial source in your ascension to BEINGHOOD, your longevity and just plain happiness!  Cranky, angry people are acidic, positively charged, and for the most part living inside of negative, limited Fear-Based Worldviews.

 

Choose to love your Self, choose consciously living, structured, clustered, negatively charged water, become alkaline in your diet, get grounded, get lots of sun and expand your awareness with gratitude for all of the consciousness that is everywhere and you will quickly find yourself living in a parallel universe of joy and abundance.

The Most Senseless Environmental Crime of the 20th Century

The Most Senseless Environmental Crime of the 20th Century | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow | Scoop.it

Fifty years ago 180,000 whales disappeared from the oceans without a trace, and researchers are still trying to make sense of why.


...But it was in this space, between the false numbers and the real ones, that the researchers’ work became engrossing in ways that had little to do with marine biology. In gathering the figures, the researchers had also gathered stories that explained how the figures had come to be—the scientist who had stashed heaps of documents in his potato cellar; the whaling ship captain accused of espionage; elaborate acts of high-seas tactical misdirection and disguise usually reserved for navies in battle. The authors, I realized, were assembling not just a scientific record but also a human history, an account of a remarkable collision between political ideology and the natural world—and a lesson for anyone seeking to protect the fragile ecosystems that exist in the world’s least governed spaces.

From the October 1932 issue of The Royal Neighbor, on Milady’s Own Page, a reminder that “oysters are not the only food which comes into its own with the ‘R’ months,” cream soups made with milk, butter, and often a cooked and stewed vegetable are welcome when wintry arrives.

Along with recipes for six different cream soups (Cream of Cauliflower Soup, Duchess Soup, Cream of Spinach Soup, Chicken Cream Soup with Noodles, Cream of Crab Soup, and Bean Consomme; click the image to get a large legible scan with all the recipes), the vintage magazine has additional tips on cream soups.

Create A Casual Vintage Holiday Table Centerpiece Using An Old Wooden Drawer

Create A Casual Vintage Holiday Table Centerpiece Using An Old Wooden Drawer | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow | Scoop.it

As I’ve said before, I like useful collectibles — and, because I don’t like anything to go to waste, I like to find new ways to make use of old things. Just because something is “old and just laying around,” doesn’t mean it can’t be salvaged or re-purposed. Like the vintage refrigerator crisper drawers, I knew these old wooden desk drawers I’d found could do something new and fabulous… Worn, paint-chippy wood is so charming!


Immediately, I thought of the holidays and the need for low centerpieces which wouldn’t get in the way of seeing family and friends.

Cob Ovens are a relatively inexpensive way to bake, with all the benefits of wood-fire such as a hot hearth.

 

Materials are raw and often sourced locally from the land.

 

This Cob Oven was built leading up to the 2008 Forest Festival held in Jackeys Marsh, Tasmania.

 

The oven is a design from Build your own Earth Oven by Kuko Denzer. Many thanks to Jenny for the photos...
