Ugh, I forgot my knowledge of how to can food and my sewing and knitting skills.  I can provide clothes (as long as they're not TOO fancy and, unfortunately, no pants as of yet) and plenty of sweaters, scarves, hats and socks so we'll not be cold.  Cheesy Wink
So, we're founding The Cauldron Commune, then?

I'm in.  Not really sure what my practical skill is, besides candle-making, but we'll need worker bees and organizers and I'm good at both.

If I bring my husband, we'll have a kick-ass carpenter, too.  That would probably be useful on a commune.

I'm good at organizing, too! I used to be a file clerk - my contacts from that business say my old bosses are still screeching about me leaving. Apparently, they needed to hire THREE people to replace me. Hah.

I'm good with a hammer! As long as someone else saws, I can put together a good number of stuff. I'm also good with animals. I trained my dog in two languages, and I even managed to train each of my four cats to do something special. I can work with horses, too. I know a fair about 'em but I think that'd be Warhorse's thing in the community.

I can cook some, not a gourmet chef, though. My thing's with animals. Messenger-doves for mail service... I know something about making paper outta trees. Hey - there's this plant called kenaf - it's a bush. You can make paper outta it, and it regrows fast. Grin

Hahaha!  We could be a shoe stealing tie dyed pirate commune!  Muwahahahaha!! <snippage>

To everybody else who piped in with goods and services.  Rock on!!!!  Sounds like we have a rockin' community already!  I sew.  I garden.  I cook.  I am good at raising animals.  And I have a lazy horse that could be used for anything non heavy labor-like.  And since I've just gone through a month long trial of no electricity in my bathroom, I can rough it with candle light like a Trooper!!!

<snippage>

Hah. Yeah!

As for the electricity... <shrug> When we were living in our last house, we once had an ant infestation in the upstairs bathroom. Now, mind, we did have a downstairs bath, but it was a half bath - sink and toilet only. I flat-out refused to shower or bathe with ants, so I took sponge baths in the downstairs half-bath for two weeks in the dead of winter.

If I survived that, I can survive anything.

You know, the funny thing is that if I won the lottery, my biggest dream is to build a somewhat subsistant community that doubles as a Renaissance faire and Bed and Breakfast.  It's really corny, but it's my dream.

Actually, that would be a great educational tool for the general public.

Hey did you all see the Good Morning America piece this morning about the Green Family??
http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=3159955&page=1
The web blog is really "eh", but the story this morning was interesting.  He was there talking about it himself.

Now THAT guy has guts!

I'm good at organizing, too! I used to be a file clerk - my contacts from that business say my old bosses are still screeching about me leaving. Apparently, they needed to hire THREE people to replace me. Hah.

That's happened to me twice - once on a horse farm, and again at KBR, when I was doing the convoy tracking and payroll.  Another driver told me that the three people who replaced me didn't do as good a job.  It's the politics - they didn't get along, and so everything suffered.

But I was sure glad to get out of that cauldron. Wink

Completely Useless? Bah. Smiley

Don't worry, I can make pants (ar at least, I can make shorts, so I would assume it's pretty much the same, just more sewing on the legs).  Actually, if you can knit, or can sew a shirt, you can make pants.  Honestly, I can make a pair of shorts in 2 or 3 hours...and it only takes that long because I really suck at it.   Tongue  Shorts and pants are the easiest things ever to make (except for skirts of course).

I dunno about that Pyperlie....my shirts tend to be what me and my mom call "square shirts". You know, fold the fabric in half, cut and sew around a neckhole, sew side seams and arms holes, and hem the bottom. There ya be: quick, easy, simple and quite comfortable shirt in no time at all!  Wink
