Re: Swen Saw

I've got a couple of the compact chain saws. We started with one of them, and bought a second one after using it to take down some branches from one of our trees that were well over our heads. We just slung one end over the branch and started cutting. It cut through the branches VERY easily.

Re: Everyone Talks about needing Maps

I also second the topographic maps. I DO have some other maps (DeLorme Road Atlas, state and local maps) but for a "bugout"-type situation, or when I need to go cross-country (or for hunting, etc.) I find the topo maps are invaluable. They show elevations, water holes, etc.

Re: JANUARY 2015 - What did you do to prepare this week/mont

Cleaned out the chicken coops Friday, and got the manure into the composter, then cleaned out the rabbit hutches and got the manure into the garden beds. Took the last 3 bags of goat manure, and topped off one of the beds, then planted carrots. Had to replace two bags of the onion sets--the little d...

Re: The truth is, you do not need a reason to prepare

My parents also grew up during the Great Depression. My mother's family ended up migrating from Kansas to Oklahoma, to Texas, and finally to California. "Grapes if Wrath" stuff. My grandmother raised seven children during this time. I grew up in "earthquake country", and through ...

Re: fertilizer scarce

I stopped using commercial fertilizers years ago. Instead, I use a combination of goat manure, rabbit manure, composted chicken manure, compost (LOTS of worms at work in the pile), crushed eggshells, (calcium) with trace amounts of Epsom salts (magnesium) and occasionally some iron phosphate and sul...

Re: Arkansas homeschool family children taken?

I could go on all day about the public school system, the teachers, and the coaches. I have always regretted not having the opportunity for a private school, or not homeschooling. I believe the present public school system is a cesspool of incompetence, laziness, nepotism, corruption, and failure o...

Re: Mice got into my rice......what to do with it?

Since mice pee and poop in/on EVERYTHING, I would NOT eat that rice! If you have dogs or other animals that would eat it, then put it in a specially labeled container for them. Otherwise, toss it.

Re: JANUARY 2015 - What did you do to prepare this week/mont

Stocked up on another 40 lbs of rabbit food (WITH a coupon, so saved a buck) and more food-safe buckets for storing edibles in. Also picked up more veggie seeds and a few hundred onion sets.

Re: What odd-ball containers do you always save and what for

OK, I'll play. I save the flat-sided 2 qt juice containers...wash them out, sterilize in the dishwasher, and re-fill with water. Since the sides are flattened, they can be laid on their sides and stacked for storage. The little cannisters that beverage mix tubes come in...I use them to store my vegg...

Re: So.. Can Openers Again

That looks just like the ones (3 or 4--can't remember) that I have. One in the kitchen drawer, the rest in storage in the garage to be dragged out if/when something happens (like what happened to my sewing scissors when the dog got hold of them and chewed the handles) to the one I currently have in ...

Re: broccoli in winter

Not broccoli (I'm allergic to it) but I DO know that Swiss Chard keeps going all through the winter for me. Of course, I'm NOT in "snow country", but we DO get hard freezes here, and the Chard keeps on going in spite of the freezes/frosts. Chard has been the absolute hardiest of all my veg...

Re: Are things getting better or are we in denial?

Things are NOT getting better, and at least around here, people are NOT in denial, either. People here are well aware that things are not getting better, and a LOT of them are doing what they can to prepare.

Re: Pentagon to train fighters for Syria

Somebody PLEASE tell them that this is a VERY BAD idea! Have they learned NOTHING from previous times when they trained/armed the "opposition", only to have them come back later and attack US?! What IDIOTS!
