Here’s a tip for my older readers: don’t skip that book club meeting this week. And be sure you visit your kids and grand kids. Give your friend a call and have a nice long chat. Meet friends for lunch. It turns out that all of these are amazing ways to keep fit – mentally.

A new study reveals that maintaining social ties with family and friends can go a long way toward keeping your memory sharp as you get older and can significantly slow the deterioration of memory in the elderly.

The study examined the impact of social integration on memory changes in Americans aged 50 or older over the course of six years. Turns out that the socialites had memories that declined at half the rate of those who had less social interactivity.

According to the study’s author, the results “suggest that social integration may be an important component of efforts to protect older Americans from memory decline.” Makes sense to me. In fact, I believe the same is true at nearly any age. An active mind is very often a nimble mind – and keeping up a social calendar that involves a wide variety of interaction lets the brain fire off in many directions, keeping it working. Less interactivity, more atrophy of the brain. This is a simplistic view, but so often the human body functions in this way.

A cooperative (also co-operative or coöperative; often referred to as a co-op or coop) is defined by the International Co-operative Alliance’s Statement on the Co-operative Identity as an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise[1]. A cooperative may also be defined as a business owned and controlled equally by the people who use its services or who work at it. Cooperative enterprises are the focus of study in the field of cooperative economics. Cooperatives have a sponsored top-level internet domain .coop, which identifies legally registered or recognized co-operatives.


Greetings My Fellow Sovereigns,

I’m glad you are able to get online and enjoy Internet. This post will hopefully allow you to enjoy your life even more than ever before. We all buy things that we need and want even though our money seems to run out before the week. A great way to empower your money and allow you to enjoy life is to join with family, friends, neighbors and other sovereigns who share your interest is to form a cooperative.

A cooperative can save you money as you buy items in bulk, yep, need a new computer and decided on a model well maybe several co-op members need a computer too and have settled on the same brand as you have. You can ask the computer store or even when you buy online from the manufacturer about discounts for several of you making a purchase at the same time.

It doesn’t have to be the exact same model with the exact same features. You can get a bulk discount perhaps if the purchase is shipped to the same place or perhaps if you buy on the same day. It doesn’t hurt to ask. This applies to all kinds of products as well as co-ops that serve to bring together those who want to sell with those that want to buy.

If you are buying a new computer perhaps another member is looking for a cheap used upgrade computer or a second computer or their first computer but wants to save by getting a used computer.

There’s all kinds of co-ops and it can be a great way to save money, even perhaps make money by swapping, selling used, making an item to sell or some other ways of sharing the cost of living in our modern world.

If you co-op or have some kind of experience sharing items with others leave a comment and share your experience along with any wisdom you’ve gained living all or part of your life off the grid.

Yours in Sovereign Native Living



Co-ops and cooperation not Corporations !!!!!!

HE SAT and watched the screen. Watched but did not truly see, for he was waiting.

He was waiting for them to show themselves again, like they had so long ago.

He was enduring an eternity of jabbering emptiness, suffocating in a relentless tide of trivia, but he knew it would be worth it in the end.

He used to enjoy this stuff, somehow, but not any more.

Not since they’d flickered onto his screen and into his consciousness during the World Cup semi-final against the USA.

The image of their words was still seared into his visual memory, in the original giant yellow lettering.

“BELIEVE NOTHING!” they’d told him, “QUESTION EVERYTHING! and then, finally: “OBEY NOBODY!”

Then they’d crackled and gone. Everything carried on as before. Nobody had ever mentioned the words. Perhaps they were only meant for him.

He had to wait for them. He had to wait for them to come back and tell him what to do now.
