"Society does not generally expect its farmers to be visionaries." Perhaps not, but longtime Maine farmer and homesteader Will Bonsall does possess a unique clarity of vision that extends all the way from the finer points of soil fertility and seed saving to exploring how we can transform civilization and make our world a better, more resilient place. In Will Bonsall's Essential Guide to Radical, Self-Reliant Gardening, Bonsall maintains that to achieve real wealth we first need to understand the economy of the land, to realize that things that might make sense economically don't always make sense ecologically, and vice versa. The marketplace distorts our values, and our modern dependence on petroleum in particular presents a serious barrier to creating a truly sustainable agriculture. For him the solution is, first and foremost, greater self-reliance, especially in the areas of food and energy. By avoiding any off-farm inputs (fertilizers, minerals, and animal manures), Bonsall has learned how to practice a purely veganic, or plant-based, agricultureâ€”not from a strictly moralistic or philosophical perspective, but because it makes good business sense: spend instead of making more. What this means in practical terms is that Bonsall draws upon the fertility of on-farm plant materials: compost, green manures, perennial grasses, and forest products like leaves and ramial wood chips. And he grows and harvests a diversity of crops from both cultivated and perennial plants: vegetables, grains, pulses, oilseeds, fruits and nutsâ€”even uncommon but useful permaculture plants like groundnut (Apios). In a friendly, almost conversational way, Bonsall imparts a wealth of knowledge drawn from his more than forty years of farming experience. "My goal," he writes, "is not to feed the world, but to feed myself and let others feed themselves. If we all did that, it might be a good beginning."
Eighteen-year-old Amber isn’t overly enthusiastic about the camping trip her and her stepfather Steve are supposed to take together. But her doubts soon turn into excitement as a storm overtakes them while out in the wilderness, leading to a sex-fueled adventure that leaves stepfather and daughter fucking and sucking the night away. Camping with Daddy is a Dark Sensations production.
It's Christmas at The Shores. There's no snow yet, but there are so many lights that the tiny coastal village can be seen from space. One house isn't lit up. It's been dark for years. That's about to change, when Wild Rose Cottage comes to life, and death, again. The third in The Shores series that began with "Revenge of the Lobster Lover," followed by "Mind Over Mussels."
The Long Road to Heaven, the annual pilgrimage to the Galician city of Santiago de Compostela has taken place for over 1,000 years.

Maps.
Real-life author Eloise Spanks wrote about the sexual escapades of her neighbors—and not a little about her own libido—in Tongue Tied. Now, in volume two of her confessional Being Eloise, Ms. Spanks reconnects with some of the same characters while introducing us to the sex lives of the denizens of the big city: all longing for excitement, love, and the titillation of a fresh start. Like the volume that precedes it, we've found the journey thus far full of climax. We're eager for even more. A terrific read
