  1. Thanks I never thought of using boiling water to rehydrate the peas. I will try that and see if they are any softer that way.
  2. I tried some of my dehydrated peas last night - YUK!!! I soaked them for 2 days, then simmered them for about 15 minutes. They came out "quite firm" , not soft like frozen, canned or fresh peas, but not hard either. They were also very "bland". I wound up throwing them out. Any ideas on what (if anything) I can do to improve the softness and flavor ? I really hate the idea of tossing out several pounds of dehydrated peas. FWIW, I have had no problem rehydrating brocolli, celery, carrots, or corn. Thanks
  3. I have several types of antibiotics in my preps and would like to have some detailed information (if available) on how long they are good for. A few years ago AARP had and article that tested medications 5 years beyond their expiration date. The article said that the meds retained between 75% - 90% of their original potency. The down side was that they didn't specify what the meds were. I have Amoxicillin, Tetracycline, Pennicillin and Doxcycline in my preps. Recently, I was told that antibiotics lose their effectiveness (potency) after 1 year. Does anyone have any knowledge on h
  4. Hi Arby, Since you state you are on foot, I surmise you have a particular location or locations in mind. Have you considered setting up a cache ? If not at the location(s), somewhere in between. It would save you you time and effort in the event you had to "take to the woods".
  5. Picked up a couple of eyeglass repair kits today (the ones with the screws in them) and ordered some seeds in for the spring. Still trying to figure out how to jockey the money to get some more freeze dried food - that stuff has really gone up in price this past year. Last year I USED TO/COULD buy freeze dried chicken and diced beef for about $30 - $35 a can - now it is $50 a can.
  6. One thing I found out today - Have an extra pair of eyeglasses (if you wear them keep your old pair for "just in case") AND a repair kit (the one with the screws in it). If you wear contacts, get a pair of glasses (for SHTF time) Mail order glasses are pretty inexpensive. The last pair I bout online, with bi-focal lens cost me $45 including shipping. The DW had the lens fall out of her glasses (no extra or old pair). The 1st repair kit did not have the correct size screw, the extra kit in the preps did though. I will pick up some extra kits in the AM.
  7. I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this. Mods, if this is inappropriate for this forum please move it. I consider it a prep item in the medical catagory. I use this method for my colloidal silver. This info was copied from an article on another site. How to make your own Colloidal Silver in consistent and effective batches I have been using my home-made Colloidal Silver for over 15 years. The first couple of years I thought it was a piece of cake to make it with a couple of coins and a 9 volt battery, but was greatly mistaken. I cont
  8. The DW is an R.N., Reiki Master, Board Certified Reflexologist and Healing Touch Practitioner. According to SEVERAL of the publications she receives, one of the best ways to build up your immune system to minimize getting a cold or the flu is with vitamin D. These publications state that you should have a minimum of 1,000 units of Vitamin D3 daily - 2,000 units per day is preferred. The key is that IT MUST BE VITAMIN D3. Unless the bottle states that it is D3, you can not be certain of what you are getting. Theoretically, 15 - 20 minutes a day of exposure to BRIGHT sunshine wi
  9. "I have a water question too - Do you guys dump & refill your water containers annually? I have been doing this, but wonder if I need to. I know the water goes "stale" after a while, and figured it would be nicer to drink water that was "fresher." Am I just making work for myself? (I have plenty of other stuff to do...)" If you are not already aware, the milk containers and soda bottles are made to biodegrade in about 2 years. If they are kept away from sunlight and in a cool stable temperature they will last longer - how much longer I do not know. I feel a lot of the "stale" ta
  10. Whoo Hoo !!! Made my first batch of colloidal silver today. I found a set of detailed instructions for the equipment and how to do it. According to the instructions, when the liquid is filtered into the containers there should be few, if any, "clumps" - I had one VERY small clump. The "shelf life" is only a couple of weeks before the charge dissipates (extremely tiny particles), but I wanted to make sure I could do it BEFORE the cold and flu season arrived. Now to start using it and see if I can see any difference from it.
  11. 'Lavenderflowers' date='Aug 31 2009, 01:26 AM' post='311242'] I tried searching using many words and didn't find anything about what to start saving up in the form of currency. Cash, silver, gold, stamps??? Food, seeds, dry goods??? fuel, wood, gas??? animals, water, other?? I have started getting a few things together and the obvious keeps staring me in the face. What do you save for? I have a little of all of the above, but nothing that would get me very far as most of my assets are tied up in the bank, stocks, property, that sort of thing. There are too many doomsday senarios
  12. As if we don't have enough to be concerned with about the swine flu vaccine - now this is added. Note that Dr. Wodarg states that "Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. “On the contrary if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak,” http://www.bild.de/BILD/news/bild-english/...-of-cancer.html Posted Sept. 6, 2009 German health expert's swine flu warning Does virus vaccine increase the risk of cancer? 21.08.2009 - 12:33 UHR The swine flu vaccine has been hit by new cancer fears after a German health expert gave a sho

['Louis1' date=Sep 2 2009, 07:55 PM' post='311607] ='Cricket' post='311563' date='Sep 2 2009, 01:24 PM']The education department's suggestions include building background knowledge for students about Obama, and then asking, "What do you think he'll say to you?" During the speech, students should be instructed to "think about the following: What is the president trying to tell me? What is the president asking me to do?" Another exercise would be to have students write letters to themselves about "what they can do to help the president." "These would be collected and redistri
