A friend at work has given me some old Practical Self Sufficiency and Home Farm magazines from the late 70's/early 80's to have a look through.
There are some really interesting articles in there and I've been surprised by the the range of methods used all those years ago, some that we think are quite new now. I'm going to pick out a few interesting ones and show them on here at some point in the future.
In the meantime I'll leave you with this back page advert from Home Farmer June 1983.
Considering the advert must have cost quite a bit to print it's very poorly worded but it did make me chuckle, I like the bit where it says "someday most people will live in communes - why are you waiting?".
I've often jokingly said to my wife about living in a commune, but she knows there's no way I could be around people all the time, it would drive me mad, especially if there was any lazy ones!
What do you think to the advert?
Does it make you want to live in a commune?
