Dear friends and patrons of my cubit I offer my sincere apologies for my absence and apparent abandonment of this cubit. This is all due to the current situation we are facing here and in no way a reflection of my intentions for this cubit. Overtime I want to develop this into something that will help many people to do the things they want, via questions I will happily attempt to answer through my own knowledge and research, please feel free to throw any question regarding DIY at me and I promise I will answer from both my own personal experience and research. I felt from the very beginning I had something to give to those of us that aspire to create and do things for themselves. Help, suggestions are more than welcome of course and I would dearly appreciate constructive criticizer's, so come join an ordinary man who is by no means an English language scholar, and help me help others. A note to the wise don't ever underestimate the serious or even the people you consider stupid through lack of education!

Jon, does this mean things are improving there and you are ready to dig back into cubits or that you are still struggling to get back to a more normal life? Group hug to you either way.

I look forward to your being able to dig in here again soon.

Jon, I don't know if DH & I will do much about our DIY projects, but I do enjoy lurking around your posts for musings like this one of yours, that to me, goes to the difference between the Found and the Lost being not necessarily a matter of 'education'. lol

Hubris can be a great way to get Lost, and Paracelsus wrote so well about it in an essay of his here: http://herbalwitchcraft.com/blog/2011/07/03/mandrakes-and-ev... . I loved where he wrote, "...[These] plants are for those who approach them with the respect that one accords to other individuals who possess their own knowledge, their own powers, their own identity [imagine that, sez Bluespiral]. What makes these plants valuable to us apes is not just that they contain alkaloids or ... They are not a means to puff up our self-esteem. They are independent beings, subjects and not objects. I don’t know how much more clear I can be.

Maybe, in this world, it is just not possible for most people to wrap their heads around the concept that plants [and to me, Bluespiral, by transference, people, too] can be companions rather than objects to be owned and used."

So, Jon, you certainly don't need to apologize for anything to me - just keep being you.

Hi Karen, thanks for posting and for the link, however when I clicked on it for some reason it came up FORBIDDEN! Confused

Hi Brenda, thanks for posting, I'm not sure to what extent things are improving, we still have a major problem with the nuclear reactors in Fukushima and fairly high levels of radiation in Ibaraki.
I'm unable to repair anything that was damaged during the quake and subsequent aftershocks due to a shortage of materials.
The house needs major repairs to the foundations which I will undertake myself in the autumn, after all it's just digging and mixing concrete.

Jon, sorry about that link. I'll ask Paracelsus about it. Meanwhile, see if his home link works - http://herbalwitchcraft.com/blog/ .

I hope you and your community are able to obtain the materials you all need by this fall, too. Don't worry about keeping up this cubit for now - first things first.

Karen there is no need to lurk on my forum, please come join in! no one
will harass you rest assured as they would be instantly banned! Though currently I have found no reason to ban anyone at all and doubt that would ever be necessary here. I'm well aware I have my critics out there but actually I neither care for them or take any notice, I love the things I do and do the things I love. So welcome Karen (bluespiral) and the same goes for all who visit my cubit as long as they are civil to each other all are welcome.
