  1. The story of Nancy Luce captivated me. Thanks for posting the link to it. I kept imagining a movie made inspired by her life.

  2. I have had this question for a long time : how do you deal with home insurance companies when you have a self built home to insure ? Or a rocket mass heater as primary heater system ?

    • An excellent question for which I don’t have an answer. I have a friend who is an insurance agent and I’ll ask her about this issue.
