      Try cleaning again and cook

    Try cleaning again and cook something you don't plan on eating and see if the problem corrects itself.  There have been instances and product reviews that mention this issue but a majority of people I know who have them don't have problems.  Perhaps they changed something in the manufacturing process and it is causing more off-gasing of the new materials.  Also – contact the vendor you purchased it from for a replacement if necessary.  I know the vendors we have worked with on Sun Oven offers have provided replacements as needed when issues have come up.  Hope this helps.

      Farm, Ranch, Feed Stores

    Besides what joemanc suggested, you might also look at feed/farm & ranch stores.  They usually have 55 gallon barrels (olive type) available at at bit lower price.  And you won’t have to pay for shipping.

    Here is an interesting article and graphic I came across a while back that shows the voluminous growth of the tax code over the years.

      Marketing / Sales resource

    bklement – thank you for sharing your family’s difficult time with us.  It is very valuable for the community here to gets lots of different perspectives to the challenges we face. 

    One resource you might look at utilizing for marketing and selling the woodcrafts at is Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/.  It is a great place to find and sell handcrafted products such as the ones your parents are making.  And with the holiday season coming up – the more places these items are available at, the better chances of moving product and achieving success. 

    Best of luck,

    Jason

      18th century gear shopping

    TreeBeard – if you need to prep for 18th century living – I recently came across Jas Townsend & Son for all your old world prepping needs.  Why is it that I like this store?  Shouldn’t I want an iphone5 rather than a dutch oven or salt pork pot?

      Meat CSA

    You might also ask around about any Meat CSA programs that have started.  Like a veg csa, you prepay into a meat producing operation that then provides you with your weekly / monthly delivery of various cuts.  You still get to support the local producer and support systems (butcher, cold storage, etc) and have access to your protein in segments.  Some producers also have different varieties of protein that get included in the box.  (chicken, pork, lamb, beef).  

    Just another option to consider.  There is always lots to consider with these types of investments.

    Keep us posted.

      I said goodbye to $3.XX gas a while ago.

    Sunday best price – $4.05 – Northern California, Yuba-Sutter – And that is the cheapest of the cheapest gas.  Arco Cash price – $4.08.  The lady next to me was not happy while filling her Expedition.

      New additions to the family.

    We are excited to introduce the new additons to the homestead family.  About three weeks ago we re-established our dairy goat setup with 2 new goats. Both were pregnant when we got them so more baby pictures to follow in the coming months.  


    Brie (Lamancha)  & Fontina (Alpine)


    Who needs a TV?


    Baby Brie – born on Sunday – here is 2 minutes old.


    Here Baby Brie is 19 hours old – able to walk and sporting a camo jacket made out of an old pair of 2T toddler pants.

    So very excited about the new goats and having a kid so soon means we will have milk for ourselves in about 2 weeks.  Yum! Cheese coming very soon.
