    No. California
  1. Unfortunately, no. I moved here so my city would have no reason to be targeted in case of nuclear war. LOL! Well, there's nothing a few feet of Velcro won't fix!
  2. Well, I got it at the only military surplus store in town, and they didn't know how to put it together. Leave it to me to find something like this.
  3. I doubt this is the proper place for this post, but I'm trying to get this vintage rucksack to go together and am failing miserably. I'm going to attempt copying and pasting from my livejournal. Maybe a moderator can move this post to the right place please? I'm trying to figure out how to put this vintage rucksack together. The place I bought it suggests it's Norwegian, but I've found nothing that looks even remotely similar on the Internet --as in sewing techniques and the hardware and webbing on the bag. This is how I started putting it together, and then came to a complete halt. The bag has these metal clips. This is the suspenders. It has loops that are a bit crunched at the end, suggesting they hook to the metal clips somehow. Back in picture one, you can see how the straps appear to fit perfectly through the guides in the suspenders. This is the front and the bottom of the bag. There is also a 2" wide belt, and a ton of web gear. Anybody have an idea?
  4. http://www.csmonitor.com/Money/2010/0805/W...he-grocery-bill http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/conte...ml?hpid=artslot Here are two more links to the wheat prices.
  5. The crops don't seem so bad... http://www.hpj.com/archives/2010/jul10/jul...preportMRko.cfm I'm not sure all the places to check though.
  6. I didn't even know the Red Cross did blood. Aren't they the ones that had some kind of problem after 9/11 though?
  7. ROFL!! At least you've won something useful, rather than a trip to the Bahamas you can't take because you don't have anyone to care for the animals. Welcome to the forum!
  8. I don't know about everyone else, but are you sick to dying of those advertisements for getting rid of half of your 10K debt? Now why didn't *I* think to spend myself 10K in the hole so I could get half of it back? I just love Dave Ramsey. Even if I'm flat broke, listening to his CDs will make me feel like a million bucks. It's kind of like "shopping" for maps at AAA if you're desperate to buy something. We're also in debt up to our eyeballs --all in medical bills. Larry's laid off, I'm unemployed (and costing yet more in medical bills.) I just found out that Medicare does not pay for yearly pap smears anymore. Only every other year. Maybe they're hoping you'll die of aggressive cervical cancer before your next pap is due. Another thought... "If it wasn't this, it would be something else!" Hope everything picks up (in a good way.)
  9. Well, the 1/2 gallon jars have a wide mouth. I guess we'll be considering this an experiment as well! I'll check the seals weekly to make sure none have come undone.
  10. Well, there were no beans & rice recipes which is why I didn't post any recipes. I'll dig through it and see what goodness I can find.
  11. Pigzzilla.... do you live on the opposite side of Redding than me? I'm near Westwood Village.
  12. At the LDS cannery, they're broken into 2-inch bits or so. I break mine in half to cook them anyway, so it's no hassle for me --especially with the half gallon jars. They store a lot of spaghetti.
  13. Awesome. My husband will love that. Thanks!
  14. We're foodsavering sugar in 1/2 gallon jars. I've finished the white and am onto the brown. Should I be packing this firmly, or leaving it kind of loose?
  15. I think it was just meant to be. I went to a Christian high school, and there was a Mormon girl there... so we were the misfits. (small town.) And then Y2K came along and with all of my preparedness, I ran into a lot of Mormons and Mormon material. Soon after that I started working on genealogy, and that was right when the LDS church was bringing their genealogy online. So, ditto on the folks I met. I'd really felt like I needed religion in my life (not just spirituality) and had the Jehovah's Witnesses coming over for many months and my husband wouldn't have anything to do with it. Then, Mormons knocked on my door and weirdly -- Larry was interested in THAT, although he'd been raised a strict Baptist and all through his genealogy, his ancestors raced all over middle America burping up Baptist churches. So yeah --it was definitely the great canning and access to the Cannery. LOL!
