   I can't believe you are the first, either. (And I can't believe I'm the second...)

   I really admired this production when I first saw it, respected the amount of work which went into it - and assumed our promo people would be all over it.

   OK, promo people:  "What gives?"

     What about it, do-nothings? You heard the man, jump on in...

Posted on the Northwest Region Facebook when it first came out.  Will post it again because of this thread.

I didn't comment on this thread because I had already commented on another thread about this video when it was being reviewed.  This is an excellent video - well done technically and I like how it shows what goes on behind the scenes.

Tell your Pacific Northwest facebook friends to "like" and post in the Northwest Region Project Appleseed page.

Great documentary. I posted it on the Appleseed Homeschoolers facebook page ( right after it came out, and that was one of my most popular posts.

Back on March 11th I posted for this on AARs from other sources.  This is too good to ignore.

Very good. As an IIT2 (at least Colonial Shooter told me I was) this helps me understand how to prepare for an event a little better.

"The cost of a thing is the amount of life required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run. When one has obtained those essentials necessary for well-being — food, shelter, warmth, and clothing, there is an alternative to struggling through steel jungles for the luxuries. That’s to adventure on life itself, one’s vacation from humble toil having commenced.” -Townsend Whelen
