    I put this under the What Did You Do To Prep This Week thread in RURR but I'll put it here too......in case folks are planning [someday] to print some of the lists on PAPER....






    PAPER .....printing paper, not just T.P. is getting short .....according to this report.


    MtRider  :reading:    

    If it makes anybody feel better, I just ordered 4 8-ream boxes of paper from Staples on sale today for work, so it probably hasn’t hit the standard printer paper yet.

    Somewhere, I have a cartoon about ripping weeds out instead of throats.  😝


    I asked Mom once why she pulled weeds in the neighbors’ yard. She said that otherwise she’d be cleaning my room.  I decided that was my sign to shut up.

    Guess what popped up in Facebook memories today?

  3. Went to Natural Grocers today. Very low on frozen veg, and their produce didn’t look great either. Got enough to do the stuff I wanted to do tomorrow.


    Tired of always feeling like I’m running out of grocery money.


    Picked up a non-citronella mosquito candle in hopes it’ll keep the buggers out of my office - they’re trying to eat me alive in there, and I’m no where near the door!

    Our long-term hospice nurse said that mom was getting 'sassy' with me.   :laughkick:  Sometimes I'd just go out to the garden and rip a few weeds out by their necks. Seemed to be good therapy.  :whistling:

    The Domestic Revolution by Ruth Goodman.  Talks about how the transition to coal for fuel in England changed the world, including how we wash up, decorate houses, and cook.  It’s fascinating.


    By the way, I finished this book in 2 days.  She goes into quite a bit of detail on even the system of cutting and maintaining trees for wood and construction in England prior to the transition to coal, and the actual differences in how you would cook, keep house, and wash up given different fuel sources.

  6. My quick & easy keto slaw was a bag of shredded cabbage with Primal Kitchen’s ranch dressing (not a creamy ranch like normal ranch, more tangy) and a few drops of stevia glycerite. Made for something quick to toss into my lunches. Need to get back to low carbing again.

    Working on the home equity loan. I just hope and pray I am not making a mistake. The fireplace and main bathroom are going to be big ticket items. So this is why I am getting this loan at my financial planner's statement on this. I sure hope he is right about doing this. He said I should tap into the equity in my home. Just not sure of the way they want to do it. I want a fixed interest rate and they don't want to do that, saying it is not the best way to go. So if and when interest go up so will my monthly payments. So I am not moving on this very fast.

    Find a different bank if they won’t do a fixed interest rate. They don’t want to do one because interest rates are so low right now, it’s practically ridiculous. We re-financed 3 vehicles with extra cash included to pay off some high interest credit cards, and are now paying $900 LESS every month with rates locked in under 3%.

    Vanilla flavored vodka would still be my first choice. But that vanilla burbon sounded sort of...I don't know, refined. They had vanilla, honey, apple, maple and peach. Maybe a splash in some hot coffee or tea for a toddy? Obviously I don't have a clue here. I think I need some recipes. :rolleyes:   Or it could be bartered. Probably be a pretty nice barter item. Anyway, I justified my way up to the checkouts with 4 bottles, about pint size I'd guess of J.B. vanilla burbon to add to my regular Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and flavored vodkas.

    I have drank way too much peach whiskey this summer.  Peach Crown is fabulous when mixed with Zevia Cream Soda or Dr. Zevia.

  9. I got called up for jury duty.  In a room of about 150 people, I think maybe 4 were wearing masks.  They're having everybody line up outside the building and turn in a COVID pre-screen form...that they completely ignore as long as you tell them you have a cold, based on what I heard from others.  They do still have capacity reduced from 300 to 150 in the sorting room.  I have to go back for jury selection tomorrow.

    I went to Michaels to pick up an item I've been wanting in my arsenal. I couldn't find it and I can't remember the name of it to ask. Still can't remember what it's called. It's stick shaped, electric and gets very hot on the end. I don't know it's real purpose but I'd use it to burn a hole in a plastic container to allow drainage for a potted planter.

    50% of adults are fully vaccinated in the US.  On May 24, the seven-day average of new cases was the lowest it has been since June 2020. But among unvaccinated people, the infection rate and death rate are estimated to be as high as in late January 2021.

    Do you have a source for that one?  I haven't heard anything about the rates still being that high.

  12. Someone in one of my other groups said that he does lots of repairs on computers where they put a piece of plastic over the camera.  The screen isn't designed for the pressure.

    Similarly, the average Briton would need to shave a fifth of the average milk consumption down to 16ml a day - or roughly three teaspoons. 


    That's less than I put in my single cup of coffee every morning.

    Comment by Hamid Merchant:



    Dear Editor

    Many women across the world after receiving CoViD vaccines are complaining of irregularities in their menstrual bleeding; some experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), some bleeding before their periods were due or bleeding frequently (metrorrhagia/polymenorrhea), whereas some are complaining of postmenopausal bleeding.
    As of 5th April 2021, there have been ~958 cases of post-vaccination menstrual irregularities, including vaginal haemorrhages, that were recorded in MHRA’s adverse event reports. There were twice more cases of menstrual irregularities with CoViD Vaccine AstraZeneca than Pfizer (643 vs 315 respectively) [1]. It is anticipated that the actual numbers of cases are much higher than the numbers recorded in the pharmacovigilance systems as many women in different cultural context may have felt uncomfortable to talk about it, may not have thought that it was vaccine-related, or may have not been encouraged by their clinicians to make an official report into the adverse events reporting system.

    There have been recent reports of haemorrhage, blood clots and thrombocytopenia following administration of CoViD-19 vaccines that have raised concerns over the safety of genetic vaccines for people with pre-existing coagulation disorders or those on certain medications. Regulatory bodies have also issued warnings to the patients and healthcare professionals to be vigilant and seek prompt medical assistance if they experienced typical symptoms of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), a potentially fatal clot in the brain [2,3]. European Medicines Agency has also revised the summary of product characteristics and listed thrombocytopenia (very low platelets) as a ‘common’ side effect (i.e., 1 in 100 to 1 in 10) of Vaxzevria, i.e., the CoViD vaccine AstraZeneca [4]. The pharmacovigilance data also suggests that thrombocytopenia is also a frequent observation followed by mRNA CoViD vaccines such as Pfizer or Moderna.

    The ‘heavy menstrual bleeding’ has been previously reported in females with underlying platelets disorders [5]. It is plausible that the vaccine-induced thrombocytopenia may be an explanation for the recent incidences of heavy menstrual bleeding experienced by women in different countries after the CoViD-19 vaccination. The significant loss of blood in many women may lead to severe anaemia, further exacerbate thrombocytopenia, and therefore may significantly increase the risk of haemorrhages and clots.

    Clinicians and front-line healthcare workers are advised to encourage women to report heavy menstrual bleeding or other extraordinary bleeding events post-vaccination formally into the vaccine adverse events reporting system and seek prompt medical advice. Public health agencies and regulatory authorities are also requested to investigate these incidences and issue further warnings, as this can, possibly be an early sign of potentially fatal vaccine-induced prothrombotic thrombocytopenia leading to rare CVST events in younger women. There may be some women with pre-existing conditions or those on certain medications that may be at increased risk of experiencing post-vaccination severe adverse events and early warnings will help saving lives.

    She's always pilfering through my cupboards for medicinal cough medicines.  Nite Mother.


    My doctor feels that asymptomatic people don't have enough virus load to get sick let alone give it to others. Since his wife, also a doctor, ended up on the city health department my doctor has been spending his nights researching and using up forests of trees through his printer.   :happy0203:  He used to think that objectors to the gene therapy were wackos and conspiracy theorists. He's changed his mind.    :welcome:   He's also finding out that much of the non-mainstream researchers are having their videos and charts wiped from the net.   :reading:


    I remember seeing something on a virologist from ... I want to say Norther Europe ... who basically quit his research because he was being targeted.


    I'm surprised some of the people I follower are still on Facebook - not sure how Ivor Cummins has managed not to get kicked off.  Many of the natural health groups are hard to search for info, because they use vack seen, bite a min sea, etc., so if you're trying to search for something you have to know all the alternate terms.

    We traveled a month once in our old 27 ? foot motorhome and somewhere around here is a long, fun, but informative thread about it.  I'll see if I can find it and bump it up.  It's amazing what can be prepped in an RV.

  17. While on Spring Break, we were talking to someone who lives in an RV and was parked down there during the Texas ice storm.  The park they were staying at lost power, and the temps were down to 20F.  Luckily, this guy had a generator, and they ended up with 3 RVs plugged into it to keep warm!


    If you were going to live in an RV, where space is VERY limited, what would you keep on hand in the way of preps?
