“This is the ultimate tiny house off grid paradise. Situated on 380 acres of spectacular lake-front property with private hot-springs and abundant wildlife, the land will eventually be home to a fully functioning off-the-grid, solar powered community of tiny homes which will be placed amongst a network of geodesic dome greenhouses growing organic food.

The first of the homes is already in place, with ingenious design and high quality craftsmanship. It’s owner Kathleen takes us through the property and shares her vision for an amazing future.”

“In today’ video we take a deep dive into the question of how to get internet on the road. First we distinguish between hard-wire internet you get at home, WIFI hotspots like you find at McDonalds, and the way nomads get internet, through a Cell Tower using an internet data enabled devices. We talk about using
Your phone as a hot spot, Jet Packs and other faster devices with MOFI using carrier aggregation. They cost a little more money but you get dramatically faster speeds with MIMO (Multiple In and Multiple Out), especially going up.

Sewed own popup dome-home for need, been selling them since…

“In 1979 Asha Deliverance sewed her first geodesic dome on an old Singer sewing machine, finishing it in time to become her eldest child’s first home. Motivated by the work of Buckminster Fuller, she continued to build dome homes for friends until she responded to increasing demand and opened the country’s first retail dome company in 1980.

Today, Asha has stopped sewing and relies on her team at the Pacific Domes headquarters in Ashland, Oregon to fabric weld her domes. The company provides shelters for families, glamping sites, greenhouses, climbing, events (e.g. Coachella) and extreme outposts. “To test some of the possible challenges of living on Mars, NASA joined forces with Pacific Domes in early in 2013 to erect a 44-foot geodesic-engineered dome on the northern slope of Mauna Loa, Hawaii.”

The company offers DIY dome kits starting at $5,500 for a 16 foot (5 meter) shelter that can be erected with their manual in a couple of days (instructions for the deck are included).

When we asked Deliverance about the frustrations of some dome builders like Shelter Publications’ Lloyd Kahn she explained that in the ‘60s people were building domes out of wood which required sealing multiple joints, but that using fabric has made all the difference.

Pot Roast with Mashed Baked Potatoes…

“One of the best bang-for-buck meals of all time.

***RECIPE, FEEDS 6-8 PEOPLE***

FOR THE POT ROAST

2.5-3 lb beef chuck roast
1 large onion
1-2 stalks celery
1 lb large carrots
1-2 cups red wine (about half a bottle)
28 oz can crushed tomatoes
2-3 tablespoons tomato paste
1/4 cup flour
2-3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
oil
salt
pepper
garlic powder
fresh rosemary

FOR THE POTATOES

2 lbs baking potatoes (Russets), or a mixture of Russets and Yukon Golds
1-2 sticks (4-8 ounces) butter, ideally cultured butter
Half a head of garlic
1/2-1 cup milk
salt
pepper

If you want to limit the amount of fat in the final dish, trim any large globs of fat out of the inside of the meat — don’t worry about mangling it. Put a thin film of oil into a large Dutch oven on medium heat, then slowly brown the meat, taking care to not let anything burn on the bottom of the pan. Start the oven pre-heating to 350 F.

While the meat is browning, peel and cut the onion into thin quarter-circles and chop the celery into small pieces. When the meat is brown, remove it to a plate and put in the vegetables. Keep the vegetables moving and cook them until you’re worried the fond on the pan is going to burn, then put in the tomato paste and the flour and stir aggressively to disperse the flour through the fat in the pan.

When you’re REALLY worried stuff is gonna burn, pour in the wine and start scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon. Pour in the tomatoes and the Worcestershire sauce, and sprinkle on a couple teaspoons of garlic powder. Stir to incorporate, then return the meat and any juices that collected in the plate. Toss the meat in the sauce, put the lid on the pot, and put the pot in the oven.

Put the potatoes in the oven too, right on the rack, and cook until easily pierced with a fork, 1-1.5 hours. Remove the potatoes and let them cool for a moment. Put a large pan on medium heat and put in the butter to slowly melt. Meanwhile, peel and chop the garlic. Put the garlic into the hot butter then immediately turn the heat off. If anything looks or smells like it’s going to burn, move the pan to a cooler surface. Cut the potatoes in half, scoop out the flesh and pass it through a ricer into the pan. Mix with enough milk to give you the texture you want, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and keep warm until dinner.

Peel the carrots and cut them into large chunks of roughly equal mass.

After 2-3 hours total in the oven, the meat should be soft enough that you could pull it apart with forks (but don’t actually do that yet). Put the carrots into the pot, get them coated in the sauce but not submerged, and return the pot to the oven WITHOUT THE LID. Let cook until the carrots are just tender enough to be pierced with a fork, about an hour.

Remove the pot from the oven. Chop up a few stems of fresh rosemary and put that in, along with some salt, pepper and the vinegar. Stir to incorporate. The meat will start breaking up when you stir, which is a good thing. Taste the sauce and add any additional seasoning or vinegar, then stir one last time. If any of the meat has not yet broken apart into manageable chunks, pull it apart with forks.

That’s it. Eat.”
