Roy Riggs grimaces his lips to emit his favourite sound: ssshhhhh…. its the sound of white noise.

That is what he wants to hear when he turns on one of the seven gizmos packed neatly into his black leather attache case.

Riggs is a Geopathic and electromagnetic energy consultant, operating from his home in Brighton UK. White noise means there are no unhealthy outside influences in the vicinity. No mobile phone masts, no underground rivers, no wireless modems or other electronic gadgets. (more…)

Kings of Summer

kings of summerMarketed as the next Superbad, this movie is more simply the next summer classic.

Three 15-year-old boys in suburban Ohio stumble on a wooded area not far from home and decide to abide there for the summer, living off the land and off the grid. Their hunter-gatherer lifestyle quickly turns into more shopper-gatherer, or bargain-hunter; and of course the communal wilderness friendship is tested when girls show up. (more…)

Today is traditionally the day when men are supposed to show their love and affection for their women by buying flowers, chocolates and cards, then there is the obligatory dinner, if you have more money to spend, maybe a splurging on a bit of bling for your woman…  All month, the world has been filled with red hearts and cherubim flying around shooting heart shaped arrows, all the commercials on the TV and radio has been trying to make men feel guilty if they do not do the traditional things that are supposed to be done by today to make the woman in their life feel complete.

I say, if you are going to spend money like this, why not spend it on something that is really useful? (more…)

South side of the Sky Castle in winter

I can’t believe it’s already December! Where did the year go? As I posted previously about being thankful, I can’t say it enough, I am so very happy with my life. One reason, and I believe it to be a really big part is the fact that I am content with my life. I don’t have the best money can buy. I don’t have everything I ever wanted. But I am happy and contented with what I have and how I am getting to live. Can you honestly say that? (more…)

Now marketers want a piece of off-grid

Alleluyah – The London Sunday Times has discovered unplugging.

‘Welcome to our “always on” society,’ journalist Laura Atkinson informed readers yesterday.
