The Transition Handbook Reading Group

The Longfellow Sustainability Group will start reading The Transition Handbook. The group plans to meet in the community room at Peace Coffee on Saturday mornings, 10:30 to noon on February 19 and again on March 19.

UPDATE: We’ll use a web-based reading for the first meeting in case we don’t all have the book yet. (But do get going on obtaining the book: “The Transition Handbook ” by Rob Hopkins)

For an overview of Transition Town movement (and there are many others which you may find via Google), let’s read:

    oops. Posted the above “Chillin” message under the wrong category.

    I ended up in Minnesota from my hometown in Florida because I thought sign on the bus out of town said “Mississippi”. I am always getting my categories confused.

    I decided when I left sunny Florida, where I was born, for the north; I thought that if the Inuit can do it, I can learn.

    I have been dressing for igloo since I first came to Duluth, before moving once again to sunny Mpls. My neighbor knit me some fingerless gloves, which I love, love, love, wearing them to bed and cuddling up to a couple of hot water bottles. SO romantic.

    Nice thing about wearing snowsuit around the house, if a burglar comes, I don’t have to run outside in my nightie. Or, rather, my snowsuit IS my nightie. My feet are secured for the first one minute of any emergency by the two pairs of wool socks on my feet.

    Love,

    Lynne from Jacksonville. Or San Diego. Or Norfolk, Va. Or several other places south of the Mason Dixon Line….my dad was Navy. A southern sailor.

    When I was young, I thought Minnesota looked like the seventh basement of hell. But ya know, the people are so danged Nice!!

    Thank you! I wanted an excuse to visit Boneshaker Books anyway, so I went there. They didn’t have it in stock but have ordered it and I should have it by the weekend. They deliver by bicycle! (And they were surprised they didn’t have it in stock.)

    Will we start discussing the book on February 19? (Wondering if I should hurry out and get it to get a decent chunk read by the 19th.)
