Leasing: The Follow-Up
A very good friend of mine has followed Not From Toronto since its inception. He's provided lots of feedback, and has been a great sounding board for my ideas. My recent article Leasing vs. Buying: What You Need To Know seems to have really caught his attention, and he brought up some questions about leasing that still remained for him. I would like to answer those questions now hopefully to the enlightenment of all.

it's miller time
A couple of years ago, my aunt - a very liberal, sock-and-sandle wearing, environmentally ethical, common sense kind of woman - gave me a copy of a magazine called Mother Earth News, with the tagline of "the original guide to living wisely". The magazines I normally read at the time were Scientific American, Road & Track, and Sport Compact Car, so this was a rather radical departure. For example, one of the lead articles was a writeup on tipis and yurts, with one author's multi-year experiment in simple living, including hobbit holes. Yes, it was pretty far out there.
However, it grew on me, and now I have a subscription. Recently there have been some excellent articles on the phenominal benefits of whole grains, which of course is followed closely by information about grain mills. My wife and I already try to eat whole wheat to the nearly total exclusion of white flour, but reading these articles made me want to do something more. Thus, just this weekend I purchased my first manual grain mill. It's milling time!
