Would you like to know how to make your own dyes, medicines, tools or practically anything else? This site sells self-published books and DVDs containing information on how these things were done 100+ years ago. Very useful. The site author also describes thermos cookery and how to have a nutritious breakfast for only 3 – 1/2 cents.
