Yoglin is an acronym for "Your Good Life is Now" since no one can really afford to wait until "The Good Life" decides to show up … SomeDay!! Lets do something NOW to make life really Live-Able.
We are striving to Create Live-Ability for everyone in your corner of the world and beyond, from people just wanting to start a local garden for healthier eating, to giving needed assistance to the Disabled Population and their Caregivers, to finding the best way to get yourself organized, or just getting a pat on the back for staying with your exercise routine… If you have a tip, find a video, or come across something that you found helpful… please share it here.
I have a time-bank already set up (http://hamptonroads.timebanks.org/) to help with getting things and skills to the people that need them, and without fussing about the shortage of funding sources.
Here is where we can post and schedule meetings and get-together's (just like "Meet-up"), set up events - both paid and non-paid, list workshops, and the like… This is where we can really expand our outside-the-box ideas and create a new life for ourselves and extend our outreach to others in a way that benefits everyone involved…
We have a forum area for issues, topics, notices, and discussions. We hope to include
1) self-sufficient living… (whatever definition and level and type that is meaningful to YOU…)
2) off-the-grid living activities,
3) some disaster-preparedness activities and information,
4) independent living skills and advocacy training for the disabled population in our community,
5) organic gardening and non-toxic products
6) entrepreneurial projects and exploration…
… the list could go on and on… Lets' build this community up so all of us can help each other create our own Live-ability.

This is just beginning to be developed into a Live-Ability HUB of activity for several groups. I was just asked to spearhead another social group for young Adults that are in the Autism Spectrum and wish to develop their social skills. So here are some of my ideas for social activities (most have LITTLE to NO cost for the events):
1) "Make your own pizza's" night
2) Nacho and DVD Movie night
3) bingo night/ board-game night
4) craft/art night
5) zoo / petting zoo (disabled and one caregiver/per; are free at Norfolk Zoo)
* Some other ideas are:
7) movie at Theater
8) painting (at Starving Artists' Studio)
9) horseback riding
Let me know what else you would like to do or try...
