Oh Lord, Won't You Buy Me an Acre of Land
The Foxfire series originated in 1972, with the original The Foxfire Book, a collection of articles from the magazine that was begun in 1966 by children of the Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School in Georgia. The name Foxfire was chosen as the magazine's title for the glow emitted by bioluminescent lichen that grows on decaying logs in the Southern woods, noticeable on dark nights. Since that time, the magazine has been published uninterrupted, a museum has been established, and the core principles, based on self-centered learning and community-based education have been adopted by families and educators who favor the Foxfire Approach to Teaching and Learning that "promotes a sense of place and appreciation of local people, community, and culture as essential educational tools."
Beginning over four decades go, the students interviewed the elders of their area, documenting their lives and skills, and in doing so they became aware of the close relationships and sharing that were an integral part of creating a strong community. We need more of that -- relationships with neighbors and an appreciation of lost culture, not only in Appalachia, but in the urban, exurban, and suburban communities where most of us live.

Actually, Yarcofin, urine from a healthy person is antiseptic. The urea in it is heavy on ammonia. Not that I'd be "into it" over a doctor, but if you had a crushing earache in a survival situation, it might be something to remember . . . .
Now lean over, I've gotta go.
