Next week we will be spending some time yurting up in Northern California. What’s a yurt? It’s like a tent but with running water and furniture inside it. Want to learn a little more about them? Check out Pacific Yurts – they have some good info there. I have tried to fill the schedule out next week with articles, so hopefully everything will work out ok while we are away! If you try to contact me and I don’t respond it’s because where I am going is off the grid and there are no phones, television or even internet access. On to some articles that caught my eye this past week…

And while you are here, I wanted to introduce you to a few friends of mine. I was invited to join a network of blogs called “The Life Skills Network” and you can see our new shiny badge over in my sidebar there. As it stands right now, we have several different writers discussing things from investing to the environment to motivation to frugality – and hopefully we all combine to offer different tips and advice on improving your life in different ways. Just wanted to give you a heads up as I will be linking to them occasionally, and I hope you like some of what they have to say. If you have a few minutes, check out some articles from these guys:
