Thanks to Lance Collins who sent the following list of "useful mail lists".
Mail lists are "loops" of people who share a common interest. Everyone who subscribes to the list is "in the loop" and can send mass emails to everyone else on the list, by posting to a single email. It's a great way to "keep an ear to the ground" or "100 ears to the ground" if you want to keep up with a particular issue. You don't have to post if you don't want to. You can just be a "listener". Some emails are listed below for various owner builder-related lists.

For instance if you send a blank email to the Little Houses address below you will receive one back saying you can't post as you're not a member, but the return letter will include all the information you need to join... for instance a web address for the group -- in this case http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LittleHouses/ -- and different addresses you mail to if you want to subscribe, unsubscribe, contact the "owner" or founder of the group, or of course to post a message to everyone in the loop once you've signed on.

Happy mailing!

"I collect about 100 messages a day, lots of rubbish but there's a gem every day or two which makes it worthwhile.

Shannon Dealy who hosts the COB list will be visiting Australia for three months from November. (Magazine owner) Lynda Wilson is in contact with him and will probably have a little about him in the next issue of Owner Builder.

Cheers

Lance Collins"
