Les! I'd REALLY like to know how you did that so I can incorporate it in our TransitionSweden,se NING site. Where is the manual???????? /Steve Hinton Stockholm
Hi Stephen, you make me smile! Actually, it's something that can't be done in Ning. LOL LOL But I'll be glad to teach you the ropes. When can we connect on skype for about an hour? I'm available for this kind of work all week this week.
I was interested in creating some sort of singles/dating/partnering type group?  Is that outrageous?  It's easier to prepare for an uncertain future, if you have a partner that understands these concepts, but meeting that person is difficult. With this site, everyone already shares a fundamental belief so it automatically screens for that priority.  What do you think??????

It's perfectly reasonable that couples who share values around being off the grid or partying the high life every night would super important.  Let's remember that it's not only peak oil -- it's who you snuggle up with every night.  Go ahead and create the group.  I'll work with you to make it work.


I just posted this at Transition Snoqualmie Valley here in WA state.  Input from as many sources as possible is needed.









Seems the issue of wresting the power away from the corporate banking system has taken a back seat here in importance.  Our local economy strengthening efforts would seem to me lacking in teeth when our money is flowing out and fails to provide the means to empower our citizens.  How, by what means can a local banking system be initiated?  I hope gathering information on successful models and reporting (eg. North Dakota would be one) could be started here.


I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. Thomas Jefferson
