    What a great space for one who needs a decent work space and lots of storage. Very nice use of wood and also love the skylight above the bed. — and one has the freedom to travel and still have most of the comforts of home. Very nice!!

    I see you have a fur coat hanging up. How cool that an animal was killed so you can have a fur coat. Too bad there aren’t coats made of something other than an innocent animal.

    If this coat is faux fur, I sincerely apologize.

      While many assume it’s clear cut, it’s not… In many regions, wildlife populations must be culled annually to maintain healthy and stable populations, to preserve habitat, to protect endangered species (e.g., by culling predators that attack ground-nesting birds or sea turtle eggs), and to safe-guard human health, livestock and property.

      There are also wild furbearers (beaver, muskrat and other species) that also provide food for First Nations and other people, especially in northern regions where cattle and other livestock cannot easily be raised. Meaning much are left-overs from our own food supply or part of the preservation of the ecosystem, which would otherwise be wasted and sent to landfills if not fully used or returned to the natural ecosystem.

      While use of fur apparel is remarkably long-lasting, can be worn “vintage” or taken apart and remodeled as styles change, and will eventually biodegrade, which makes it far more sustainable and environmentally friendly than faux fur. Especially, as most synthetic fibers (including fake or “faux” fur) are derived from petroleum, a non-renewable resource, the extraction and transformation of which entails serious environmental risks that can eventually harm all life.

      There is of course the stigma due to the historic abuse of the fur industry, which should be universally denounced, but there are ethically sourced furs and synthetics aren’t a real alternative in a world we claim to worry about the environment. What follows the rules of nature, is sustainable, serves the environment, and promotes respect of nature is ultimately what should be the goal but it’s not an easy and clear path as some may assume and will require some tolerance and open mindedness to actually move towards that goal instead of just divide and end up destroying what we claim to care about…

        Well said, James, and I totally agree. The first recorded killing of an animal was in Genesis in the Bible, and it’s skin was used for clothing. After that the couple was shown how to cook the meat on an outdoor grill, called an “altar”, and eat it. That couple became the ancestors to a meat eating, herding nation. I feel that if you kill to eat, and if use the skin, bones, etc. to survive, you are following the natural course of nature, except that when animals kill us for food, they don’t bother eating or using our skin. They leave it for the ants, bacteria, and other smaller creatures to devour, so I guess that’s what separates us from the animals.

    Liz, you nitwit, he clearly says it’s a fake fur coat. But even if it wasn’t, so what??? Grow up!
