Some of my readers (that's a euphemism for all two of you) might be interested in a series of articles I have written entitled Simple Living in the 21st Century. These weekly installments have been posted on the Zeal For Truth blog. Here's the link to part 4--Appropriate Technology. You can see a photo of a computer box turned into a stove!
If you're interested in the earlier parts, just look around on the site and you'll find them.
Feel free to jump in and comment on my articles or any one else's--no need to register. Many of the articles are geared to politics, some to church life, and a mixture of a few other things.
