View Full Version : Another lurker decides to post!

Hi, everyone -
I've actually been a member for quite some time - several years?? But I mostly lurk with a very rare post. I honestly don't know if I'll post very much - I'm just not very active on the internet. But when I do get online, one of my favorite places to visit and read is the Simple Living Forums.

You all are a great bunch of people, and I sure am glad these forums survived the very sad demise of Dave's Simple Living Network.

Hmm. I guess my last post was one where I asked LooseChickens the history behind her screen name. I absolutely LOVED that story and think about it all the time. You all are my "loose chickens" who keep me upbeat and positive when I feel caged in by life.

Just a tiny bit about me: I live out in rural Arkansas with plenty of undeveloped land around, although civilization is steadily encroaching. I used to garden pretty seriously, got out of it and am now planning to get back into it. That's about the extent of my "self sufficiency" efforts. I do live pretty frugally, simply because I see no need to spend money on all that stuff out there that I don't need. :) I've read Your Money or Your Life a couple of times, as well as Getting a Life, but dang it all, I just can't seem to make them work. To be honest, it's probably because of my fear and ignorance of investing. Got to get over that. ;) Okay, I'll stop now, since I did say this would be a "tiny" bit.

Thanks for all the great posts, insights and joys of living simply!

How'd you get SRP? Or those are just your initials? They stand for one of the energy companies in Phx so I was caught off-guard :-) Anyway, welcome!
