Katherine Grossman was born and raised in the greater Washington, D.C area. But for the last 30 years Mrs. Grossman has lived a life of deliberate self-reliance in rural western Pennsylvania. She loves to garden, knit mittens; makes a killer meatloaf and has been known to deliver triplet lambs with her eyes closed.

    Just wanted to say that I used your strawberry jam yesterday to do 12 pints….my family says its the best jam ever! Was pleased to be able to use the bulk pectin I got at our local Mennonite store. Jam was just the perfect spreading consistency. Plan to get more berries and make 12 more!! I love your blog and always learn something new. We are in our mid-60’s keeping our farm going with the occasional help of our two busy sons. Would hate to think of starting another homestead…moved here to the Ozarks from MI where we had a perfect 20 acres but suburbia was quickly moving in. Now on this 120 we are way boonie and loving every moment.

    This isn’t spam, OK? Crooks and Liars, a liberal newsletter, had an article yesterday on the University of Tennessee’s decision to allow fracking on some of their wilderness properties, and about the astounding amount of political corruption involved. http://occupyamerica.crooksandliars.com/steve-horn/university-tennessee-set-lease-forest-f#sthash.iTrgQHim.dpbs
    In the middle of the article was a link to another newsletter with claims that gas and oil drillers are utilizing former military psychological warfare personnel and techniques on Pennsylvania people in the path of fracking. http://desmogblog.com/gas-fracking-industry-using-military-psychological-warfare-tactics-and-personnel-u-s-communities
    I do not want that beautiful little tomcat to drink fracking chemicals.

      Angie –
      You are 100% right about the gas & oil companies employing former military personnel and psych ops on the Pennsylvania people. The gas & oil companies have been messing with the local elections and the state judiciary.

    I too am a man, my wife and I have three (3) cats, one male and two females, all are fixed, chipped, and all shot are current. (just part of being a responsible pet owner). Just so you know I had a dog. Lost him a few months back and am still getting over it.
    Great to see your page back on!
