Wecome to Dragonwood Chronicles

Tucked away deep in the woods at the southern edge of the Tug Hill region of New York. Dragonwood is our off-grid sanctuary. Six acres of pond and gardens bordered by forest on three sides.

The project began in 1995, when after a long search, Debe and I purchased the property from a local logger. To date we have built a cabin, a bridge, out house, two sheds in addition to expansive gardens and stone work. We have a generator, propane lights, refrigerator and grill, a wood stove and modest solar system. A dug well and small stream suitable for watering gardens and other needs and a nearby spring for drinking water.

The Dragonwood Chronicles will serve to document the project with photographs and notes. Future projects will include additions to the cabin, a root cellar and a studio building.

Comments and questions are always welcome.

We enjoy hearing from people who visit Dragonwood Chronicles. Please feel free to leave a comment or ask questions.

Ok I know some of you have noticed more politics on here all of a sudden. Hey I have to go where my passion takes me. I guess that's the artist in me.

Anyway I'll be posting some planting pictures soon. The garlic we planted last fall is doing marvelous and the rhubarb is up. My blueberry bushes are not doing well and we will have to address that. Also on my to do list is a new bed for the asparagus. I have a raised bed idea that I intend to make mole proof. I had a real decent asparagus bed going but each year the moles end up eating more and more of the roots. I have tried several things but to no avail. I have a plan - stay tuned.

Anyway back to the politics. I am now actively working for the Libertarian party and the Campaign for Liberty. One of our current initiatives is to generate support for House Resolution 1207. HR 1207 is legislation introduced by Congressman Ron Paul to Audit the Federal Reserve. As of today there are now 143 bi-partisan co-sponsors. I urge everyone to write, call or e-mail their representatives and urge them to support HR 1207.

I could go into some detail here but for more information I suggest you vist ronpaul.com or just google HR1207 and a ton of information will come up.

To be honest at the out set I was doubtful that this thing would get anywhere. Now with almost one third of the house already signed on this thing actually has a chance. We need to really push now and if we can get it through the house it's on to the Senate where the effort begins anew. In fact many of us are already contacting our Senators to lay the ground work.

The Obama administration promised transparency. Let's see if they meant it!

Join us and contact your representative today!
