  1. I'm sure this will be of great interest to her. Thank you so much!
  2. Good Morning Friends! I have a girlfriend that is new to canning, but she was recently diagnosed as being allergic to sugar. Can you help us find her some recipes for pickles and more that she can make? We have made the sugar free jam and she was so excited she wants to do more but I don't have any more recipes for her . . . your help would certainly be appreciated.
  3. Not sure the validity of this - but have received it twice in emails in the past two days. . . . Even if it is NOT for real - we should stop and think about what if it WAS real. I, for one, believe it is probably true. STORY: A Wall Street Journal columnist has advised people to 'start stockpiling food' and an ABC News Report says 'there are worrying signs appearing in the United States where some … locals are beginning to hoard supplies.' Now there's concern that the U.S. government may be competing with consumers for stocks of storable food. 'We're told that the feds
  4. My DH completely set my vehicle up when we married last year. I could survive days in it if needed - and be safe and warm and fed. I NEVER had a thing with me before him . . . he's opened my eyes to some basic facts of life. Now I have to encourage my grown daughters to ready their vehicles AND their lives!
  5. Welcome Dear - I lived in Indiana for 50 years - East Central - on a farm. Relocated to Northern Virginia 18 months ago to get married of all things! I miss my Hoosier roots though - all of my family are still there. New Hubby promises we are moving closer when he retires in three years. I travel back about every two or three months. . . . gotta see those grandkids, you know? But anyway - Welcome! You will find a wealth of information here.
  6. We did 26 jars of pickled beets. LOVE to can beets!
  7. I paid $28.95 including shipping. Hope it works for you as well! www.petdrugs.com
  8. Back in the 70s I worked in banking . . . and was told by the big wigs that yes, the accounts were insured up to $100,000 but that they didn't say WHEN the insurance would pay it back . . . that it could be paid back to your grandchildren. . . . Don't know if that still applies . . . but something to think about.
  9. I did an internet search and found a supplier in Canada that did not require me to have a prescription. I purchased 6 months worth of HeartSmart for less than $30. Don't know if that helps or not but there it is . . . .
  10. I'm convinced. Keep it all. Thanks everyone.
  11. We are negotiating a deal with seller for all he has left. We will be wanting to keep some of it . . . but would want to sell what we are already stocked up on. All items stored in back bedroom of his house. #10 cans - we will probably sell surplus for $4 each plus shipping - that would offset our cost, plus pay for our time and effort in transporting it. Sound right?
  12. Opened one - excellent condition! Thanks for the comment on my avatar - that's my Granddaughter, Aubrey - nearly 2 - and looks so much like her mother in this picture . . . the hair, the eyes and especially the finger up her nose!
  13. Greetings! I, too, live in the beautiful state of Virginia - Northern area for me. I am finding more and more people here in our home state that are taking the signs seriously. Good to meet you!
  14. My DH and I stopped at a yard sale yesterday and they were selling out their preps! I bet they had at least a year's supply of #10 cans. They were selling them for $2 a piece. We purchased all that the budget would allow. Now my question is, they are all from 2004. How long can I expect them to stay usable? We have emailed them (got acquainted as we were shopping) and said we would make them an offer on any that are left. They are moving and will start over, they said. But are these a great purchase since they are already 4 years old?
