A little about me:) I am really into French pastry learning these days. Made my first croissants from scratch . Not successful I am afraid. Managed to kill the yeast unfortunately :D trying again after my trip to Paris. I love making food using the birch sap. Next to my home in Norway is a forest full of birch trees. In the spring I harvest the sap and later use it for desserts and sauces. I keep bees and collect the honey during summer also. I love eating fresh organic vegetables and eggs.I grow a lot of my own veggies. I keep some hens who give me lovely eggs . My favorite crop are fingerling potatoes and summer peas. I like cheese and love French cheese. I live in an ecovillage in Norway and know how to use renewable energy.Installed first 9solar panels on my roof this summer. www.hurdalecovillage.no
RULE #1: PLEASE TAKE 2-3 MINUTES TO READ MY PROFILE BEFORE SENDING ME COUCH/MEETING REQUESTS, I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MAY NOT BE WILLING TO READ ALL THE LONG DETAILS OF EVERYBODY WHO YOU SEND CS REQUESTS TO, BUT TAKING FEW MINUTES TO TAKE A GENERIC LOOK WILL INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF GETTING A POSITIVE RESPONSE. IF YOU SEE THIS AND READ MY PROFILE, INCLUDE THE CODENAME "chickens" IN YOUR MESSAGE. You will understand why later if you visit.
RULE #2: I WILL WRITE A REFERENCE FOR EVERY CS PERSON I MEET (HOSTING, MEETING, HOSTED); IT IS OF COURTESY TO WRITE BACK A REFERENCE SINCE THIS IS A TRUST PRINCIPLE WHICH CS IS ESTABLISHED UPON. IF YOU FAIL TO WRITE A REFERENCE BACK, EXPECT THAT YOUR REFERENCE WILL BE REMOVED BY ME ;-). unfortunately out of the 24 guests I have hosted none has yet to leave a reference as a guest. This is now a requirement.
