    Toxic leaves… I once had this problem with my poor cat. I did not know about the fact that animals are allergically reaction or intolerant to some plants and so I simply ordered some plants but my cat was falling ill because she was biting on the leaves. It was such a beautiful plant but I had to put the ((SPAM LINK REMOVED-this will be the only warning)) plants for sale in order to guarantee that my cat or any future animal I am going to have won’t be biting on the leaves falling ill of its toxic influence on the animal.

    I was told, that energy saving bulbs demand for only 25% of the energy that conventional bulbs needed. Still there is a justifiable concern about how harmful those Compact Fluorescent(CF) bulbs indeed are. Generally speaking from my perspective I think that my eyes are not used to CF bulbs. And I have to confirm: Yes I do get headache as well.

    Thank you for your thread. Actually I’ve been living in Europe for a couple of months and thus got to know how far Europeans have taken the solar energy question. There are two recognizable forms of gaining solar energy: the simple solar thermal energy that is used primarily for water heating (summer and winter). Photo voltaic is used for electricity production purposes. Both forms can be subsidized by the European Union. So even small households can benefit from having a solar device on their roof.

    When I came across this forum I was wondering about your discussions related to off grid living. Even though I am not as daring as you I do have a sense of what you try to accomplish in the US. I compels respect from me because living off grid must be quite adventurous for you guys.

    Hey Valpal I may not be able to help you, but you have all my best wishes for you to escape the concrete jungle of NYC and find a nice place to live off grid. Hopefully you will find someone who can be a follower and partner to you. God bless you!
