    We are having a very cold winter here too. I'm staying plenty warm but I know I'll pay for it at the end of the month. Literally. I took the Jeep out tonight to keep it running. It was a little slow to start. I'll try it tomorrow during the day. If it's still sluggish I'll get a new battery. I'm not playing with it since I'm by myself and would probably have to call a tow truck for a jump. Probably cheaper to get a new battery and not worry about it. I don't have A.A.A. because I used to have S.O.N. It's -2 tonight and I've got a fire blazing in the fireplace. I've gotten good at starting a fire in the insert. Three little pieces of fat wood and two little pieces of twisted newspaper and a long nose lighter and off it goes. I swear by fatwood.

    Oh my Homesteader, I haven't thought about Red Green in decades. I used to watch him and his nephew Harold on PBS (I think). Best wishes and prayers for your hubby's new knee.
  6. K-Mart And Sears Closing

    I really hated to see a Super K-Mart close down by me a few years ago but I sure did get some good deals. None on the list are near me this time. I should have mentioned that is why I posted the list. To give folks here a heads up for some bargains.
  7. It's been a LONG time!

    Oh my goodness. WELCOME BACK! I remember you very well. I thought about you a few months back when I was reading in an old thread and saw your post. Computers...pffft. Don't get me started.
  8. North Korea

    I can't imagine what those people were going through. Are there 'safe' places for the public to go to?
  9. Storm a’Comin

    Wow TheCG! Good thing your FIL stopped and pulled over!

    I'm so sorry. That is so had to watch. It sounds like she has successfully completed her earthly mission and is ready to reap her reward.

    Sending up healing knee replacement prayers for Mr. Homesteader! Sounds like his personal nurse is on top of everything. Sheeesh, what a day Mt. Rider! Poor 'little' Koa's tummy. But yuck. Sorry, but I had to laugh at your clock/calendar confusion. Mostly because I can so relate to that. I haven't done that one...yet. Thanks for the heads up though. Weather here is nasty again at 15 degrees. It rained this morning then froze and now it's snowing on top of it all. Very dangerous out there. One good thing is that it is happening on a Friday so there won't be any school busses and rush hour traffic for a couple of days. I will say one good thing about my county and that is the road crews try to keep ahead of all the snow and ice on the roads. Even the side streets are pretty well maintained. If only they would teach the snow plows to slow down and stop taking out the mailboxes... I'm staying put for the weekend. I got all of my errands run yesterday when it was 60 degrees. I stopped at Subway and was going to get a 6 inch sub for lunch today but he said for something like .50 more I could get a foot long. Heck yeah. So I had half today and will eat the other half tomorrow. I wouldn't do this BUT last time I was at McDonalds I saw a sign that said they deliver. I'm sure it is expensive. Probably an Uber driver but it was interesting to know for shut ins. They do have a descent salad with grilled chicken and Newman's Own ranch dressing. And a killer soup in the winter. Just thought it was interesting. We just got an Amazon delivery depot last month too. Its about 20 minutes from me. There is also one in downtown Cleveland too. If you have Prime you can order one day and go pick it up yourself the next day. Another thing I probably wouldn't use but good to know.
  12. Flu 2018

    I heard it's really bad this year. Very bad. I was watching one of The Patriot Nurse's video's and she was talking about it. She mentioned something about the flu shot this year was only 30% effective. I guess they misjudged the type of strain or something. Don't know. She also said there is a shortage of IV bags mainly because of the hurricane in Puerto Rico. I've watched a few other videos and they say the same thing too.

    He had his thermostat set at one temperature but the inside of the house said is was 5 degrees cooler. Such as, he had his thermostat set at 70 but it was only 65 in the house. That is just an example. I don't know what he really had it set at. Son said they went out there and adjusted it the next day. He should have felt lucky to have had any heat at all. Some people called with issues like that but prefaced it by saying to service those in dire need first. Not this guy. He called first!

    I ran a few errands today getting ready for a big ice and snow storm predicted for tomorrow. I didn't really have to go but my meds were due to be picked up and since it's right there in the grocery store I picked up some fruit and fresh veggies. I topped off the gas tank so I'm set for whatever does or doesn't come my way.
  15. Storm a’Comin

    Strange weather here. After zero degree days earlier this week, today it was 60 degrees with rain. Tomorrow we are supposed to get rain, sleet, ice and snow. Probably some high winds too.
  16. Coffee....

    I have an electric glass pot for tea too. I thought I'd use it more for canning but mine isn't very big.

    Ugh We2, not fun! I've gotten my car batteries at Sears for decades and have never had a problem with them. They have even outlasted their lifespan. The last time I needed one it gave me plenty of warning that it was time for a new one. It was hard to start a couple of times so I went ahead and got a new one before it completely died on me and I could still drive it. They are probably more expensive (don't know) but I guess you get what you pay for most of the time...not always though. I THINK they are Die Hard. However, my lawn mower battery died within 3 days of starting it. Sigh. It came with the mower so I don't know what kind it is. I don't even know how to access it yet. I'm always leery about my furnace in the fall. It is original to the house going on 40 years old. Son is working in heating and cooling now and they are so busy this year. It's been in the single digits and below zero for a few weeks in a row there. They tell people that homes with senior citizen's and babies get the top priority. One guy got a little testy when his thermostat was off by 5 degrees and they told him that there was a home without any heat at all with children inside. He thought since he called first they should service him first. They told him to turn his thermostat up five degrees and they would be out when no ones life or health was in danger. Makes you me want to just slap some people. Kappy, when you find that money tree, I'd like a start from it...please. Seeds, cutting or root piece will be fine.
  18. Rollll Tide!

    LOL. I don't care for college sports but I did see the highlights and they were exciting! Nothing like an overtime to set the nerves on edge. Congrats! I love the Steelers though but have boycotted pro football this year because of the kneeling garbage. And since I'm in Cleveland area I will occasionally watch the Browns even though I don't care for them. They have a perfect record so far...0-16.
  19. Pool Shock To Treat Water

    Okay, I'm back to not vacuum sealing it. Thanks RebelDigger for checking in and adding to the thread. Nice to hear from someone who has had some experience with it. Until I saw the video I didn't realize there was 'gas' that could build up. I've got it in a canning jar in its original package and will try to remember to burp it in the spring and fall when the clocks change. At least in a glass jar I can see if the packaging is degrading.
  20. Funny how some things just naturally fall in place. I had bought a little container of pool shock to treat water about 2 months ago and was wondering how to store it. I thought I'd go ahead and dump it in a pint canning jar. Then I decided to Youtube it. It just so happened I bought the same brand that the person on the Youtube video had. So, below is a video on storing it and another video on how to use it. I'd use pool shock as a Plan D. I have a Berkey, bleach and life straws but I like to be redundant in my prepping. Also a link to what I bought. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009S85M8A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It does look daunting but most of it involves getting the house fixed up to a saleable condition. I just listed some of the steps. I should have added limiting Internet time too.

    We are still freezing here. The high was 9 degrees today. I went out to start the mower and it's deader than a doornail. I just went out and started it 3 days ago. I'm not going to even mess with it until the temp gets up in the 40's. I'll buy a new battery if I have to. I feel about messing with a battery abut the same way I do electricity; I don't like it. I'm just making sure I keep the Jeep going everyday for now. I don't have AAA because son was always close by. Sigh.
  23. Coffee....

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll get a 'Keurig' one and not go the cheap route. I'm assuming Keurig makes one.
