I want you to be absolutely certain that Birdsong Forest will not misuse any of the personal information that you provide. Why? Because that would be just rude. If you provide your email address or telephone number, I won't email or telephone you with junk. I won't sell, rent, or give away your information to anyone at anytime. Why? I just don't have the time or inclination.

As a convenience to you, there are links to other website that I think offer useful information, products, services, etc. If you visit websites that I've linked to please understand that I don't have any control over their policies. Duh! So, be sure to check to those websites directly for information regarding their data collection and distribution policies.

Affiliate links: There are not any affiliate links on my website. No compensation for recommending, referring, or linking to other websites. Why? I don't like affiliate links.


Hey folks, I am just offering my views based on years practical experience and research. I am not a trained or licensed professional in any field except English literature. 

I want to empower you to do your own research, study, and examination and get out there on the homestead and do awesome shit. But, with that power comes your very own responsibility. You proceed at your own risk.

The resources (books, websites, etc.) listed are resources that I have found useful and I recommend that you give them a try, but again, you proceed at your own risk. But, do let me know if you have a horrible experience so that I can reexamine a website, vendor, etc. and make a change if appropriate.

Comment Moderation

Well, well, well you want to leave a comment on a post! Terrific! And yes, I moderate. Why? Because rudeness and so forth is just not something that I want on my website. 

Keep in mind that I rarely veto a comment. Why? Because I don't want to limit comments to folks who agree with me but rather to folks who are rude. So, feel free to disagree and be nice.
