Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I enjoy it and I´m addicted to old, ruined houses so I´m going to need it to build or rebuild whatever housing I get into, even it is a packed-earth house.  When I´m in my nineties, I will retire to make eternal, wood furniture in some form of Arts & Crafts style.

I´m addicted to old, ruined houses

A friend of mine has a taste for them. He restores ruins then rents them out as holiday homes. Off the back of this he got a couple of book deals, and ended up as a consultant and researcher for the BBCs restoration series. Plus a S4C tv series on Welsh houses. He's just been told he's a finalist in an ethical tourism award.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
