Tons of cool books to learn how to build a Tiny House or Backyard Office or even a Man Cave.

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have uncovered surprising new clues about a hefty, rapidly aging star whose behavior has never been seen before in our Milky Way galaxy. In fact, the star is so weird that astronomers have nicknamed it 'Nasty 1,' a play on its catalog name of NaSt1. The ...

Help the state of Indiana celebrate the career of Mike Pence by naming a blind fish with an anus on it's head after him!
I just signed an important petition at iPetitions. I really care about this cause and I hope you'll show your support for it, too.

In Alabama, the Rural Studio design workshop has spent years refining prototypes for a cheap, well-made small house. Soon, they'll start selling the plans.

The charges range from manslaughter to "second-degree depraved heart murder." The officers are due in court on July 2.

How Much do you Need to Earn to Afford a Modest Apartment?

I enjoy how you attack my anecdotal personal facts instead of addressing the point.

About half of us were not employed full-time and went to school at the same time. Any given month there would be 1 or 2 of us without any work at all. 

Why do you think the standard should be that one should be able to afford housing all on your own?

Why can't you accept the fact that there are other ways to skin the cat?

In any case if you are a busboy, dishwasher or janitor, the benefits are tangible and the trade-off is less disposable income, but it can be affected by lowering one's expectation regarding housing. Few people make the minimum wage in any case. And those who do are usually teenagers still living at home.

On the surface the data says people need a certain minimum pay. The rest of the story is not so simple. The unintended consequences are rarely taken into account. Just look how jobs are being lost in communities where mandated higher minimum wages are being realized.

One of the best stalls at the PDX farmer's market. Their seasonal stuff is different enough that it makes you think of new applications for it. That is the sign of a good ingredient, when it's novelty inspires you to make new choices around it.

Best ground pork in Washington County bar none. Produce, leaning towards Asian-types, is fresh and cheap. Has a reasonable selection of sauces, condiments, base cooking ingredients but you may need to go elsewhere for anything really specialized. Only complaint is that they freeze their won ton wrappers to extend shelf life which makes them very difficult to work with when you unfreeze them.

Walked in for some stir fry ingredients and some herbal meds, started laughing at the obscene prices. Looked at the brown rice in the bulk bin and it was dessicated. Walked out with just herbal meds. They were actually reasonably priced.

Has all those healthfoodey things that are sometimes hard to find elsewhere. One of the only places to get good local tempeh. Prices vary, and some normal items may be much more expensive here than elsewhere.

Winco, even Trader Joe's is often cheaper, and TJ's is right next door. I went in for a bag of frozen chicken breasts and the Safeway ones with discount were still 30% more than TJ's prices and almost 50% more than Winco's prices. Sometimes they have some decent loss leaders and the Safway for U app works alright but 90% of the time it is cheaper to shop elsewhere. Also because the prices are so much higher typically the produce and meat seems to move a lot slower, I've never had a bad bag of potatoes at Winco but I've had a bad bag at this Safeway. All in all, if you are smart and only buy the loss leaders, it is alright. For day to day shopping beyond the 30-40 items a week they have sale, look to spend around 50-100% more than Winco. Spices are simply outrageous. Winco has bulk spices often 1/8th or 1/10th the price. A 2 oz jar of curry powder here costs as much as a pound at Winco.
