With September 11 fast approaching, so too does the risk of another terrorist attack on US soil. They say this every year as the date approaches, but in 2014, it seems to carry a bit more weight than it has during other years.

When you think of that little dream homestead in the woods, what does it include?  Probably a well and septic system, a little stream bubbling nearby, a chicken coop, a sunroom for winter growing, and a cozy fire to curl up next to.
