    the gathering (new beginning)

    PAGE 2 We are putting our heads together with others, of the small area, that we live in since we are such a large family and we need to get things rolling as far as aone can do...First on the list is to make sure all have good shelters, now we will concentrate on medical and food stuffs and water.... We have all been doing our own medical care as there is no doctor here , they left when called to the big cities and my doctor was killed in a accident....his widow even left....we have a midwife in the area and some of us are so use to doing with out, cause we had no insurance be for the fall(emp), that we have taken care of our selves and our families...we also have medical books and herb books and cs machines...(collodial silver generators), we have learned in the past 3 years that we are going to have to learn alot more as the younger ones will be getting married and having children...there will be plenty of accidents to care for too..... so we need to set up a clinic (infirmary) and keep it locked, when we are not there or keep some one there with a gun to protect what we have . which is not alot , but is more than what some have,,,,we are learning to wild craft(gather herbs from the woods) how to dry the herbs we grow and how to grow them and to propagate them so we can have more.....how to trade for the herbs we might need and to barter for them....it is not easy.....things have to be kept in the dark and in jars and tins and books learned .....heaven knows what we would do if we had to do surgery other than sewing some one up or simple removal of a bullet....time has come to see if we can get a doctor of some degree here ...there are no fancy machines to make the decisions for the doctor , hopefully he or she will be one with some sense in their head....the hospital in town is closed and all have left and now we need to make some decisions....oh!!! GOD HELP US!!!!! TO MAKE THESE DECISONS......IT IS IN HIS HANDS....also we need to have some one who can do dental work for all of us.....there are so many things to think about , it is crazy......but as we were all busy before we never thought how or what to do to set up a new city or hospital , clinic or what have you also a jail and laws....so for now ....take care and keep the faith and god bless

    Page 1.... This is a new beginning for all of us...we will not be getting our lights back and we are having to work with a new life...It is totally different and now is the time to dig deep with in our selves and come up with new ways and a new way of life...we need to make laws and do like our founding fathers did , write up a new draft on the consitution so that we each have laws to go by...but holy cow that is alot of work, and there is not the whole of the USA we will do it for ....we will end up making laws and rules and consitution for each section that we live in.....there are alot of folks here , who believe in GOD AND THE HOLY ONE AND WE HAVE A CHURCH AND WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT........there is alot of us who want to have a malitia and to have a jail near us for the ones who do wrong ...like the bad boys who showed up a couple of years ago.... We need to work together, more than what we did , and we need leaders and a way to set thing up for a government that we are going to use to hold us accountable for what we do or do not do... we do not know how many peoples are out there and we have no idea as to what shape the USA is in but we are digging deep and trying to get folks to work harder and to see what we need....it will not be an easy job,,, before the EMP. there was talk of a revolt by citizens who wanted to have the president step down and less government and that was for the cities and counties and federal....we wanted less military in our neighborhoods and less police actions in our areas and more of getting rid of the drug dealers and the like... now is the time to right the wrongs of the past and , brush off the dust and grime that has lingered on us for so long...it is time to gather in more ways than just our families but as a real nation, even if we are in small composite areas.... we need to set up medical, fire fighting and militia and leaders..... we need to be honest , common sense, and liability as to what we are doing....this is the TIME...ME thinks this the time the good lord chose for us to right things like NOAH and his family did....we will have to STAND TALL,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,STAND TOGETHER,,,,,,,,STAND UNITED..........STAND FOR LIBERTY..........BUT there will be some hard choices and there will be some large prices to be paid, but if we want freedom and we want a ever lasting freedom we now have to dig deep with in our selves and do what is right and get rid of the folks from our areas that want to dominate us and have us like serfs or slaves.....GOD MADE US FREE AND HE GAVE US THE FREEDOM OF FREE CHOICE......so now is the time for mankind to get on their knees and thank the good lord for what he has given us....to work for the glory of GOD and for all mankind.....take care and keep the faith and god bless all

    i did a test on olive oil and froze it in a canning jar , took longer for it to freeze than it did to thaw....but it was fine when thawed, and was usable ...so will buy some and freeze it in one of the freezers.....same with crisco and lard, and butter....take care and keep the faith and god bless
