Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Electrician came and put in the lights (think shop-type lights, but with LED tubes) BRIGHT light for working with patterns, cutting fabric, sewing, etc. For more muted light, only turn on the one in the "closet" area (on a separate switch), or for more light, the two fixtures in the main a...

Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

The drywall, taping, and mudding in the sewing shed are DONE! The outlets are all in. Tomorrow, while waiting for the electrician, (He's going to put in the lights, and hook up the electric to the shed) I will sand the drywall, then later the painting will be done. After that, I'll scrub the floor (...

Re: Prep Concerns for Korean 'Conflict'

I've been nervous about spending more on freeze dried #10 cans of meat. But, I'm starting to change my mind. Our pro-soccer playing son is done for the season. He's been in Texas, since Jan. and has his car with him. Hubby flew down to make the Texas to Penna drive home with him. A father-son exper...

Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Cut and put up the last large piece of drywall this afternoon, then cut a piece 10 1/2 inches wide to put in at the small side of the door. The only piece left to do is for just above the door, and at the top left. Will start taping and mudding tomorrow (starting with the sections where the outlets ...

Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Icefire I would love to have a canning kitchen! That would be very neat to have. I think greenhouse and root cellar will be next for us though. Tam, the building for the canning kitchen is currently a big free-standing garage that was originally built to house an RV and that was later used as a sho...

Wow, Tam...you HAVE been busy! Got another sheet of drywall up in the shed (with cutouts for window and outlet.) Hoping to finish tomorrow, then Friday will be able to start mudding and taping. I look at the entire project as my learning experience and practice for when we're ready to start working ...

Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Got another sheet of the drywall up between getting home from work, feeding animals, fixing dinner, and running off to a meeting in the town 1/2 hour away. Had to do the "cutouts" for the door frame, the triple light switch, and one of the outlets. Also started on the cutout for the window...

Re: DNA Test Kits

Thanks rickdun but I can afford it. I'm going to wait till my wife goes overseas as she does every year to see her dad for 2 months. She doesn't have a sense of humor. BTW: I think she should hire a babysitter for me when she is gone for so long. Someone to cook, do the dishes, laundry and clean. A...

Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Made a Sam's/Costco/fabric store run yesterday. Got 50 lbs of rice, and a few other goodies. At the fabric store, found a 60-inch tall ROLL of a BEAUTIFUL blue wool that was so fine (as in NOT the usual more coarse wool) VERY lightweight, with a very smooth texture, almost like satin. Finished the i...

Re: Get free stuff on recycle free stuff.org

There is a similar site...Freecycle.org Same premise. I had also gotten about 8 or 9 cases of canning jars, Victorio strainer with ALL of the different screens, bean frencher, etc. from a lady who had inherited them from an aunt and had NO CLUE what she had, and didn't want them.

Re: New Members, Welcome to our forum!

OPFOR, Yes, I saw that episode. I like watching the show to get ideas. Another "natural air conditioner" to think about for desert dwellers...instead of a typical "peaked" roof and "standard" construction, do the "adobe style with the "lip" all around the...

Re: The importance of staying hydrated as you age:

Another thing they didn't mention...not getting enough water can result in constipation. So, if you tend towards being constipated, or having hard stools, you should probably be drinking more water (and coffee doesn't really count, because it's a diuretic--it makes you pee more; and alcohol doesn't ...
