Links of the week

I’ve been busy, so updates have been slow – my apologies.

Here are two very cool links for the moment:

Directory of Open Access Journals.

Free, full text, quality controlled scientific and scholarly journals, covering all subjects and many languages.

Because learning is a skill – especially free learning. Speaking of which – have you visited the library recently? If you want some interesting books, the Foxfire series is great. About life in rural Appalachia (the south). It’s hit-or-miss, but some real gems are in there.

And the website No Tech Magazine has a description of an earthen solar cooker. Curious little thing. I wonder if you could do solar cookers in an Ottawa winter!

Bonus: a quote from a short article:

We’ve lost certain skills because machines and cheap services do things we don’t want to do. Some adults don’t know how to cook anything worthy of serving to someone else. Grown men have have childlike handwriting. Almost nobody knows how to wait.
