Why yes, Anthem, I would be delighted to accept your offer of free credit reports every six months for the next five years...
Health insurance giant Anthem Inc. said late Wednesday that hackers had breached its computer system and the personal information of tens of millions of customers and employees was possibly at risk.

+Chrissi Cumberland The trouble with a wood stove in such a tiny space is that they burn you out. I would think it would be better to have an outside, wood-fired, boiler and have hot water registers or radiant heat flooring inside. But now it's not feeling so much like a cabin I guess.

Congratulations to India. Success on the first attempt at one tenth the cost of a NASA Mars mission. $74 million; less than it cost to make the movie Gravity.
India becomes the first Asian country to put a craft in Mars orbit and the only country to do so on a first attempt.

Does a cabin have to have a fixed foundation?
 
It's encouraging and inspiring to see the Tiny House movement grow!

I don't think so! I actually like the idea of being able to move it - although I don't know how practical that idea is concerning water and sewage.

$500 price tag for an assembled unit is a bit hard to swallow. I'd consider the kit but I lack SMD skills. Really neat radio though...and that case is a work of art.

Same here. I would rather kit it myself rather than buy an assembled unit. It is a thing of beauty though! 72... Bob de k2ki

I was in Boston last week for Inbound 2014. Simon Sinek was one of my favorite keynote speakers. This is nearly the same speech he gave to us. His premise is that effective leadership is grounded in biology. If you have 45 minutes to spare, you will not be disappointed.

A bit modern but very rustic at the same time. And it has a swing in the living room!
Meet some favorite furniture makers + craftsmen we discovered this summer!

A short time ago, I purchased 40,000 Doge purely out of curiosity. At the time, 40K Doge was worth about 10 USD. Today, it's worth just over 5 USD.  Hmmm, not really sure how digital currency ever hopes to gain mainstream acceptance until it becomes a bit more stable in value. It also won't gain acceptance until the vast majority of digital currency transactions are for goods and services rather than currency trading. #dogecoin #bitcoin
