Hi folks,

Can you tell i'm catching up on my email from being away?  This one is from
several weeks ago, but nonetheless i wanted to mention . . .

I believe the very next issue of Communities magazine, probably about to be
mailed, is on the theme of earning a living and affordability, especially
in rural locations.  I'll bet some folks on this list have never even read
an issue of Communities and don't know what a great resource it is.  (Yes
i'm biased as i write for it occasionally, but i really do think it's a
great publication!)  Most of the articles are as applicable to cohousing as
to any other form of community.
