A Former Off-Grid, Homeschooled Child’s Thoughts on the Naugler Family

This is an amazing article, I have had people assume that because we live off the grid and homeschool that we must live in a tent or caravan and not bathe or eat proper food, all these things are not true off-grid living can be an amazing experience for children and family and really helps them to see how things are truly done in this day and age of over-commercialisation of EVERYTHING, as for homeschooling there are many forms and we use the state of NSW curriculum-based education with teachers having face to face satellite lessons with the children 3 days a week.. What the Naugler family did was harm and demonization of everyone else that lives these lifestyle.

To begin with I would like to state several things.

1. I do not know the Naugler family. I have never met them. All of the following observations are based solely from the information this family posted, publicly, on their blog and public Facebook page.

2. Much of the “information” being spread about the internet in regards to this family is clearly, factually incorrect. This can be seen through simple observation of posts on the family’s public Facebook page and blog.

Most of the information people are referencing is based only from the first few photos and/or posts on the family’s blog and Facebook page. For instance, the cover photo…

Originally, I was not going to write a blog about DIY Beeswax Food Wraps. Why? Because there are SO MANY out there. I think everyone who has a blog and who also has a mild interest in reducing plastic or disposable product use has written one. Buzzfeed has a video on it. How to make […]

Food RAGE

ok the best way of getting the crispy exterior and fluffy potato fries was the air fryer. after trying the oven,grill,and pan frying with less oil option. i found that the air fryer option was the most effective and efficient. the 2ed best results were in a oven which to gave the nice and fluffy potato interior and a golden exterior but not as crispy as the air fryer. the prep work for both are the same and this method gave…

  • I have more time to do the things I love. Instead of being stuck with so much homework, I get to focus more on what I love and what needs to be mastered.
  • I’m learning something everyday, even in the holidays. That’s also something I love about myself; my love for learning.

The Psychedelic Wanderer

A couple of weeks ago I published a post ‘Bad driving and other annoying habits’.  I had been inspired by a particularly bad truck driver to write an email to the company of said truck to make them aware of how dangerously close they had been driving to my van.  After being ignored for about ten days, I decided to send another email asking why they hadn’t responded and how long I should expect to wait for a member of their ‘customer service team’ to get back to me.  I have copied both my second email and their response at the bottom of this page, for anybody else who would like closure from the ‘bad driving’ incident written about last time…..  That then lead me on to publishing my list of ‘Annoying things’ out of my ‘Book of lists’ that I keep.

However… this blog post is all about the…

If you look at clips of hippies from the Summer of Love or Woodstock or their post-60s communes, you see, the sexual liberation of the times aside, lots of non-sexual touching and hugging. In the hippie zeitgeist, human touch was one of the primary glues of communal oneness. Physical touch was not just symbolic of […]

Liana Aghajanian on the food traditions of Armenian-Americans: “Having lost property, cultural heritage, and identity in addition to the millions who were killed, food became the most transportable cultural marker that could be made tangible with the right ingredients, as Armenians were forced to migrate across the world.”
