Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

Magnitude 6.2 earthquake in Umbria, Italy
Aug 24, 2016 - 6:42 AM - by The Man
M6.2 - 10km SE of Norcia, Italy

The town of Amatrice appears to have been particularly badly hit. The mayor has said that residents have been buried beneath the debris of collapsed buildings and that “the town isn’t here anymore.”

As with any event like this type, expect much more information to be confirmed over the next one to three days. It is possible the magnitude will be revised upwards as well. Balloon Juice has a thread on the earthquake.

May be a good time to think about donations to the Red Cross or some similar charity.

Rain Harvesting, do you do it?
Aug 22, 2016 - 8:04 AM - by slimshady2357
Currently we're working on re-vamping and expanding our rain harvesting system. It's been a dry summer and our current system has gone dry and we're having to use the hose :spend: on the fruit and veggies.

We have 8 water butts that are about 200L each and I used to roll my eyes at Sou and laugh about it. This is England, it rains here all the time. We don't need 1600L of water storage! :lol:

No, we need more :nowai:

So we bought a couple of these 1000L bad boys:


We have the first one hooked up to the main guttering off the house and when the connectors come we'll attach the second one to it. We still have 2 of the water butts connected to the extension gutters and 2 attached to the greenhouse gutters. That leaves us 4 of the 200L butts still to put somewhere, we may just fill them from the big tanks or may try to connect them at some point.

It finally rained here last night and it was a nice, long glorious rain :singrain:

The southwest of the country has been getting drenched, but here in the east it's been dry, dry, dry. So that rain was sorely needed.
