  3. go to home depot and get motion detectors for the out side lights, you could even wire in an alarm to go off, nothing like lights to drive off the night prowlers, I put them out by my hives and also have an old radio that turns on just to scare to bears away.

Correct me if I am wrong.... my wife had gone shopping in the nearest city from us with friends and when i read about the spam i gave her a call and told her to grab some, she got 9 cans for 2.49 a can, the same as it cost in our little grocery store in the village.

I think the first ingredient in Treet is mechanically seperated chicken just those words turn me off. like how many feet slipped be and got ground up, although some people eat chicken feet, but i'll pass for now.
  7. when it's my turn to cook at the camp about once a yr, I always dice up 2 cans of spam(about 3/8 X 3/8 pieces and shake around in a 3/4 cup of hot butter in a skillet. don't let the butter burn or turn brown, just let it get the pork flavor from the spam. them cook 3 boxes of Kraft Mac and cheese. in another dish put 1 and 1/4 cup of milk and a slab of valveeta cheeze, heat til the valveeta melts and is hot. the mac should be done, add the meat,hot butter and all, add the cheeze and milk and stir together. put in a table spoon of parsley and serve. baking powder bisciuts go with i

I'm not sure, I just wanted to give folks a 'heads up' that there might be good prices for honey now. we harvest in the fall, but check the labels real good on store bought honey, if if comes from China, you wouldn't want it, they have no restrictions on pesticides or herbicides. we get 8.a pound for local honey which i thought was high til I looked around, some are charging 12 per poun

They have NOT been around here, nor even seen in town. I guess the “wanted Poster syndrome” took over. LOL the pre-1950 tramps,hobos, knights of the road or what ever you call them, had a way of marking begger fri

  12. Hi Stephanie, Actually i'm in a good mood, been drinking tea and honey since 3:30 AM. It just makes my blood boil when I read some of the things that people think they are going to need to survive a depression which i hope never comes,( i also hope our law makers do not give the bail out)I've read and heard that about 60% of the people do not want it.
  13. It looks like some of you might survive three days in you camped out in your back yard where you could run inside if it rained or the phone rang. you all should get in the real world and prepare for the worst, not just a fews days out with the scouts. Do any of you have any idea what it is to go without food for a week, go to bed hungry and get up hungry, and only get water from a creek to drink. you all should watch some WW2 film of people in Russia and Germany cutting meat off a dead horse in the road or read about them scraping the glue off wallpaper to eat which was made of flour
  14. sounds like you're living pretty good,hope you can eat just as good if the SHTF. i haven't prepped to eat that good. I'm hoping to eat a flap jack with bacon grease or maple syrup or even honey on it for morning with a couple cups of tea. maybe some rice or dry beans cooked in chicken broth and a piece of bread cooked on the wood stove top some time between eleven and 3 PM. at night we might live it up a little with some meat, maybe some kind of home canned veg and more bread or biscuts, rice pudding or cake, depending on how deep into a re or De we go, we hope to make 4 yrs on wha
  15. maybe they're the rest of Michael vicks gang. do yourself a favor and call the dog warden, maybe some of them don't have tags, maybe some have chips and are stolden. then again, maybe it's just some disabled vets with a (meany) and her grown pups. I know if anyone moved next to me with pit bulls, I'd find out why he needs so many and let them know where the property line was and where his dogs where to stop.
  16. our store is having sugar on sale starting Sunday for 1.99 a 5# bag, we just got 4 bags with coupons for 1.69 each
  17. I have the mate to this one in the celler hooked into the oil furnace,so the oil burner fan sends the heat thru the house or it can self rise to heat the place. http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p...d=11778852&

  19.

Personally - I buy both flour and whole wheat berries - and we use both. we do also and try to convince everyone else to get started on it now, it's to late to learn how to swim when the boat is going down

They suggested that we buy a HUGE amount of wheat. Now here comes the bad part......... I've never seen a wheat plant in my life. I haven't bought any because I wouldn't have a clue where to buy it or what to do with it. I spoke to my dh
  22. I have many 5 gal buckets full using mylar bags and 02 absorbers, a couple of the mylar bags must have a small leak because the tops on the plastic buckets are being sucked in a little and i'm using 2000CC absorbers and could have probably used 1500CCs. i've heard or saw nothing but good using the mylar bags

They don't especially like it, but I set it door side up and just stuff them in butt first while holding on to all four legs. They yowl a bit and complain but do ok. If I could remember how to attach pictures, I'd show you my babies! our labs are the same way, if they hear they the word walk, swim or thuck, they'll
