  1. This account is no longer in use. If I could delete it, I would.

  2. I am sorry that I made a reply to a post that was over a month old. I regret making a comment. Bd.
  3. Google "overdose and activated charcoal". I have given it to people who have over dosed, it's not used much anymore, all up to poison control. Never heard it used for stomach flu and IMO, wouldn't try it. Bd.
  4. In order for me to transport a hand gun I need to “ask” the RCMP to transport the handgun from point A to point B. I can stop to get gas, or pick up a friend, but I need to be going in the direction of point B. In order for me to buy a gun I need to prove I have a gun license. I can’t cross board shop on the internet. Yes, I could have illegal guns in my house. I could always go down south (US) and buy one and cross over to one of the unmark boarder areas. The risk is too great, especially when at any moment I can have a sheriff come knocking at my door and ask to see where my guns are….yes, they have every right to enter my house. I have worked at one of the major trauma centers in Canada, knives are still the choice over guns. Of course, there are gun related deaths, gangs with guns etc. What I want to express is that I don’t think Canadians choice of protection will be the firearm
  5. I did a quick search about the percentage of Canadians that hold a valid gun license. Any guess?? There are just over 34 million people in Canada. The guess will have to include the professions that carry a gun, police, security etc. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . As of Dec 2009 5.4% of the population, that’s it! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Canada WSHTF, I won’t be meeting any unfriendly people at my door with a baseball bat……. I wonder what the % is in the US? Bd.
  6. I missed the first one, would like to join this one. Just need the dates in advance. I'll see if I can kidnap Motherhen as well.....just over 6 hour drive for us. bd.
  7. Community acquired pneumonia (CAP) is hitting the hospitals pretty hard around here. I would not be surprised when the numbers come out that there had been more admissions and deaths from CAP then H1N1. It’s too bad that the government focused all their attention on H1N1 instead of this wave of the flu, maybe thats where they spent the money.
  8. Thank you all for the suggestions and ideas. I did accomplish my goal in reducing stress in my life and I saved money. I went the entire 28 days without grocery shopping. Very tempting since I ran out of wine the first week…..thought I had stocked up on that prior to the challenge. There were times I wanted to go out and do a snack run, or stock up because of a good sale, but I didn’t. I planned ahead for the entire week. Every Sunday night, I moved a weeks worth of food from my deep freezer to the fridge/freezer. Each night I took out the meal to defrost, the next day meals needed less then 20 minutes to warm and serve. It really was a no thought process, which I wanted. It takes an entire day to grocery shop and prep meals. I recently bought another food saver, hope this one works a little better. I have experimented with a few new recipes, which I think we lacked variety with the first trial. I knew the fruit favorites of the house would be an issue, grapes and bananas. I plan on keeping a few bananas in the fridge to see if it changes the taste. I’m also going to store the grapes in the freezer, see what reaction I get from the family. I froze the milk and cheese, no one knew any different. My carrots received freezer burn, had to throw out two bags. Since my challenge, I have done another two weeks before going shopping. I need to do some tweaking in my menus, but I plan on trying this challenge again before the New Year. I told family members and friends, received little support. I think they thought I was going to sell up and move to the nearby Amish community from the questionns they were asking me.....really didn't think that was a bad option. Bd.
  9. Thank you to all that made a comment. Even though it’s a few years, I think my next house will be my BOL. Another thing to consider is Ambergris experience. Bd.
  10. To my knowledge, we (Ontario) have never had to evacuate because of any natural disaster. Some may argue this, but Canadians turn a blind eye to having any kind of disaster happen to them. This article highlights a lot of things that could go wrong when bugging out. Bd.
  11. I’m having a really difficult time deciding if I should purchase a piece of land for a bug-out-location. I recently read this article about BOL and BOB. Just would like to know other points of view on this. Bd. http://www.alpharubicon.com/prepinfo/backpackfever.htm

    Women over 40

    Mods, if this has already been posted, please delete. I read this on another survival site I visit. Wanted to share...... Bd. For all those ladies over 40 (if you're not there yet, one day you will be!) In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40: As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?', here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!
  13. Thank you for the ideas, suggestion and sites to visit. Off to investigate everything to see if I can make the 28 days easier. I'll update after my 28 day experience. Just like to wish everyone a Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! bd.
  14. We all have different stresses in life. One of many for me is meal prep. This might seem trivial for some, but for me it is a great stress. My Hubby and I work full time and it’s easier to order in then to plan a meal, this needs to change. Why I posted in this forum. I would like to share my 28 day plan. Today I have visited 3 grocery stores and Costco and spent a total of 411.86 for one month supply. This includes food for all three meals, cat/dog/bird food and toiletries. I ordered and received my stand up freezer today. I have started cooking meals and freezing them, I should be done tonight. I also plan to create a 28 day calendar that states the meal of the day. There are already a few snags in my plan. What we will be short on is lettuce, grapes and bananas, I’m sure there’s going to be other items. Then other problem is when I shop I usually buy a few extras things for my pantry. There are a few items that I have already missed, I have refused to go out and buy any more. We will just have to make due. My hope is to reduce the stress level in grocery shopping and meal planning. Cut out on the last minute ordering in, save money. I have memories of a proper meal on the table when I was growing up, I hope my boys will also have the same memory. I have never done this before, would like to hear other people suggestion that do this. Bd.
  15. I have been an RN for 9 years and live in Canada. I did some travel nursing and was employed in PA and VA. What department and where you live is an individual thing. My suggestion is pick a few states that appeal to you. Then go to a few nursing job fairs. As a RN you can go anywhere, including other countries. The most important thing....way to go! bd.
