Barnfart just called me and because someone on topix blocked her, she wanted me to tell you guys that there is many black city people that live in an apartment thats less then 600sq ft and don't have a dryer or a washer and hang their clothes in the attic to dry or just wear wet clothes, yet you don't see them in a nice newspaper story about Back to Basics.

"But true to their lifestyle, there won't be any trips to the hospital for this birth. Leasure plans to deliver at home,"

Good luck with that.
If there are ANY complications with mother or baby, you're in big trouble.

Sorry to spoil your parade, mom. The hospital is the best AND safest place to deliver your children.

There are precious minutes if you or baby have complications. A midwife can only do so much.

Overall, good luck with that "back to the Earth" lifestyle thing.

Kinda silly and the kids will be freakin' bored.

Sounds like you burn a lot of gas to get to work.

You're really not so "green", are you?

17 face cords of wood for winter heating doean't sound "sustainable". I've read it takes 2 average size trees to make a cord. So last winter they used 34 trees to heat their home. Really sustainable....

If you plant 34 trees to make up for this use, you're not really replacing them are you? I mean a sapling isn't generating close to the same amount of oxygen as a full grown tree.

Right because only rich hippies would have an article wrote about their huge house that smells like wood burning shit stained diapers. They also will have a baby a year for the next 10 years because they can't grow birth control in the back yard. If they were going to do it right they wouldn't even have a wash machine and they would walk down to the creek in town and wash the laundry there. I am not really sure why I am busting so hard on these people I guess I must have woke up on the wrong side of the bed or maybe a tad sick of people with money acting like they are so great when they go without something but really they don't have the true stress of going without because they can always run to the atm and undo whenever they want. You know those people who think they are broke when the savings account gets down to 400,000.

Right with ya smurfie :) Don't know if you're local, but Pittsford where they are from is a big money town here. I'd be much more impressed if this story was about some amish or menonite family.
