  • Placer mining operations 1960s
    I enjoy watching the television shows about mining in Alaska…. May I say they are nothing like this video shows about mining in the 60s. I know that I have said on some of these videos that my back aches watching people work so hard…. When I watched this one, I not only thought that […]

It was not all hard work… This video shows Scenes from Fur Rendezvous in Anchorage, Alaska.
Looks like an event that people would look forward to going to for months in advance. Just think of the stories that were told when something like this took place.

If you enjoy learning about the way things use to be done.. you may enjoy this book called

Scenes from Fur Rendezvous in Anchorage, Alaska, during the late 1960s include dog mushers hooking up their teams on 4th Avenue, racing along trails, and crossing the finish line. Mushers include George Attla, Bergman Sam, Jimmy Malemute, and Roland Lombard. Clip also includes scenes from the fur auction and Jonas Brothers Museum and Taxidermy shop. John Baker filmed the sequence during the late 1960s and added narration in about 2000 (Color/Sound/16mm film).

postheadericon Harness the Power of Mother Nature

Even if you are not ready to live “off the grid” YET… you might be ready to reduce the amount that you pay for your electricity. There are several ways that your able to cut the cost of heating your home and water supply. With a bit of guidance your able to create many of these alternative energy options yourself.

Living off the grid is something that many people think would be a great way to live. I for one.. think it sounds good in theory but I am not ready to make that move yet. But I would be very interested in reducing the amount of money that we spend on heating the home and on heating the water for nice hot baths, doing dishes and laundry. I am a country girl but still not ready to give up those things just yet.

Alternative energy options are all around us. Both wind power and solar power are just outside the door. The trick is to harness the power of the wind and the sun and make it work for you. Taking advantage of what Mother Nature has to offer… Now doesn’t that sound simply? People all over the world are reducing their energy costs by seeking ways to harness the power of the sun and the wind.

Of all the ways to reduce what we spend on energy it would be hard to choose which one to tackle FIRST. Not sure if I would want to install a solar water heater, check into solar panels,.. or maybe look into the idea of a wind turbine…. or a solar generator. I don’t think it really matters which one to check into first. What is important is to pick one and go for it.

But where to start… The internet would be a great place to start, and that was my first step. The thing is while I was checking into a few different money saving ideas using alternative energy… many of the posts and articles took me back to the same place. The site talked about the most popular solar and wind options but it offered several other ideas as well… all that guided me to create these money saving options myself and were all together in one place… called The Green Living Kit
