Extended Profile

Thanks for checking out my profile!

I rarely keep books on hand for very long - they are registered and then moved along.

Home is a rural area, that is a 30 minute drive outside of the city of Prince George, British Columbia (BC) Canada - hence the BC in my bookcrossing ID!

Since I DO live in a rural area with a bit of space, that means I can have all sorts of interesting creatures. geese, chickens and rabbits! As well as a miniature donkey.

I'm a "canning" fanatic - though you might call it "bottling" if you are in the UK! I do up jams, vegetables, juice, meat, all kinds of things. If you can new to preserving, one of my favorite gurus is a lady name Jackie Clay. She has some great how-to books.

Jackie has a blog! www.backwoodshome.com/---/JackieClay/

A couple more blogs similar to Jackie's that I love:

Rural Revolution: www.rural-revolution.com/

Paratus Familia: www.paratusfamiliablog.com/

Something that I've just come across are reuseable canning lids. The brand name is Tattler. They are made in the US...and have a lifetime guarantee on the lid. The rubber ring should get 8-20 uses out of it. Good things these Tattler lids: www.reusablecanninglids.com/

I'll read just about anything I can get my hands on.

When I'm wearing my other cap - I work in town part time in an office setting.

Some sites that I can highly recommend:

Better World Books www.betterworldbooks.com

Backwoods Home Magazine

My address on RABCK.com is current (April 2015) - but I'm not able to get into that site to do updates - argh!

Here's the weather where I live!
