I decided to bring back some of the old show for these GVQ updates, and this month I talked about two homeschool related happenings in Mississippi and Georgia: MS HB 188, and the Georgia Child Fatality Review. After that, its onto the homesteading where I lament about prying hands getting into seed trays and then whinge about whoever built my house and oriented it strictly based on the road, and not the suns patterns for optimal lighting and temperature control.

Homesteads and Homeschools

This week I talked to Linnea Gabbard, a vet tech from Arkansas who to live off grid with her vetrinarian husband. Together they've built up their personal stores and derive essentially all their electricity from solar arrays. As Linnea said, once you get your personal life cleaned up, you move onto other aspects of your life, and for her, that means greening up their vet clinic. They are constantly on the lookout to make their practice greener, and have started building a new clinic that will run on solar.
