  1. 2018 January Free eBooks

    This one is free at this moment: Mrs. Owen's Beginning Prepper Guide for Women: Looking to the Future with Joy
  2. K-Mart And Sears Closing

    Our Sears is shutting down. I can't say I'm surprised, at all.
  3. Meals in a Jar

    I was looking at some backpacking/hiking forums and ran into this: https://knowledgeweighsnothing.com/dry-pre-measured-complete-meals-in-jars-just-add-water-and-cook/ Tons of meals you can mix up in a jar. Fair warning, they're lying about just adding water on some of them. :-P

    They're doing the Daniel Plan at church. I don't necessarily agree with all of their nutrition advice, but am using the support and such to do my own plans.
  5. Storm a’Comin

    Sitting here waiting on the next cold front to hit. Should be any time now.... I've got meals planned & purchased through Thursday morning so I don't have to leave the house unless I have a job interview or something. Should be not freezing on Wednesday so we can go to church.
  6. Flu 2018

    Alabama is talking state of emergency: http://www.al.com/news/birmingham/index.ssf/2018/01/surgeries_rescheduled_schools.html I don't *think* it's really hit our area yet, but I'm about to go through threads in here to figure out what I need to have on hand if someone in our family gets it.
  7. Storm a’Comin

    The second highest reported gusts were in our city, 68 mph. Who beat us? Guadalupe Mountains National Park, with 71 mph.

    So, I sprained my ankle the day I wrote my goals out up there. I've successfully kept a food log since January 1. I've done my devotional every day since January 1 (that's a small miracle in and of itself, as I tend to forget that I'm doing them!). I've been doing more walking, even with a sprain (one of these days I need to see somebody who knows what they're doing and figure out if I have connective tissue issues going on).
  9. Storm a’Comin

    The wind was bad enough on Wednesday that my FIL got to the end of our street (he lives on it, too), pulled over on the side, and sat there because he couldn't see a thing. When the wind died down and he could see again, there was a truck in his lane facing the wrong direction that he hadn't seen because there was so much dirt in the air. Yesterday was still windy, but not that bad.

    If you find it, send us a shoot to start one down here, please!
  11. Coffee....

    Could be. I've also seen that kettles in Britain boil much faster due to the different voltage.
  12. Storm a’Comin

    We're due to have 50mph gusts today, and have had no rain lately, so they're worried about fires. Me, I like breathing, so I'm staying home.
  13. Coffee....

    I'm really not certain why the electric kettle isn't as popular in the US as it is overseas. I use mine several times a day.
  14. Coffee....

    I'm not sure, but I'd just check reviews on Amazon. People are very vocal when their coffee does not work.

    They're doing the Daniel Plan at church, and I'm kind of combining it with the 21-Day Sugar Detox from Diane Sanfilippo. Actual (main) goals - there's a bunch of subgoals involved in everything: Stick to an eating plan for more than 3 weeks. Go backpacking. This will include subgoals of actually being in good enough shape to go backpacking and getting everything prepared. Make praying a normal everyday activity. Figure out what I'll be good at and start doing it.
