Re: EBOLA CONTAINMENT LOST-(WHO Upgrades to Highest Level 3)

Yes, the airline passenger flew from Liberia to Lagos, Nigeria. He was showing NO symptoms when he boarded the plane, became ill in-flight (thus exposing his fellow travelers AND the airline crew, not to mention anyone he came into contact with in the airport, who went on to other destinations) and ...

Re: Killing the Cows

Wow! Those prices make me REALLY glad that I was able to get in on 1/4 of organic, grass-fed beef. Cost worked out to about $3.99/pound, and that was not only ground beef, but steaks and roasts, too.

Re: Remember the "Donner party"

In all seriousness, I think it really depends on the people involved. For those who are "prepared" and have the means to provide food for themselves, probably never. For those who are NOT prepared, but WITH a "moral compass", probably not until they have exhausted all other possi...

I've just plain been busy. Been working on setting up the aquaponics system (Baby fishies are currently residing in a 5 gallon bucket until they get big enough to go into the 150 gallon tank. Plus, I've been canning meat, working the garden and selling the excess at the local market, working on cost...

Re: Water: how much do you need / use?

I recently had an eye opening experience. We were dry camping (the only water we had was what we brought with us). You may be thinking not big deal, I can get by or I understand how much water I need. I challenge you! fill a container(s) of what you think you might need for 36 hours; then use only ...

Re: The very basics on gardening

Lawnhelp, I also live in a very warm area...it requires adjusting my planting seasons, as the summer heat tends to scorch a lot of my plants. On the other hand, I'm still harvesting things like tomatoes and peppers well into December. So, "cool" season crops, such as spinach, lettuces, pea...

Re: Barley storage

I have always given all of my grains (wheat, rice, barley, amaranth, etc.) the "freezer treatment", because, YES, the whole grains could have "critter" eggs in it. In fact, that's where the critter eggs in flour come from...the grain from which it's ground.

Re: Brown sugar LTFS

Not sure how long the brown sugar takes to get hard...it depends on how much air gets into it. If it DOES harden up on you, just take a slice of bread and place it into the container with the brown sugar. The brown sugar will absorb the moisture from the bread and soften back up.

Re: Who's laughing now?

Last year, when my husband and I had BOTH lost our jobs at the same time thanks to the "sequester", my husband looked at my garden and at the food in my pantry, and said "Well, at least we won't go hungry". THAT is why I do what I do.

Re: Who's laughing now?

Exactly! Plus, whenever one of the grocery stores here has REALLY good deals (like the pasta at 49 cents each) I stock up and put it into plastic buckets for storage.
