    My Lord, family, motorcyle riding, gardening, guns, chickens, cats, reading, carving/engraving.
  1. One of the mom's relatives, who lives near Chicago, said in an interview that Nancy (the mom) owned the guns; was an avid prepper; and felt the need to do so because of the direction this country is going. I'm wondering if she was someone that was a member here...
  2. Wasn't sure where to post this. Must reach 25,000 signatures by Dec. 13! You'll need to 'register' to sign any of the petitions listed. Signatures are not going up very fast...let's see if we can 'up it' some! https://petitions.wh...supply/FYd99VbV
  3. Today's update: http://www.csrwire.com/blog/posts/300-organic-farmers-fight-for-survival-against-monsanto Unfortunately, more delays before a decision is made. I feel like the organic growers are all being told to 'just bite the bullet'...even as that bullet is fatally aimed!
  4. I'm on the mailing list with the life4ustore.com from which I've ordered some supplements. They've recently put out some information regarding a court case on Jan 31...it's apparently against Monsanto. I'm not sure if it has already been posted somewhere here...kind in a hurry... Anyway, thought it might be of interest to most of you...any thoughts? (From Carma Littleford) "Here is a comment I submitted, concerning a court case that will be judged on January 31st. Please read the info about this court case, which is below my comment Freedom to have access to healthy food is not only foundational to our health but to all of our American freedoms. The ability to control our food supply is a powerful weapon that needs to be guarded and not sold out to a corporation of elite individuals. What is being sold out is not just the freedom to grow health sustaining foods but rather it is the American way of life. If Monsanto is granted the power, through litigation,to eliminate the availability of non-GMO/ GE foods it will force our society to eat food that will weaken us both physically and mentally. There is much data that supports the connection between physical pain and the ability to concentrate, as well as causing enormous emotional strain which in turn can weakens our will. That fact doesn't even need an expensive scientific study to be substantiated. Any person that has had to endure extreme physical pain or extreme emotional strain can attest to it's ability to hinder processing thoughts. If we lose our rights to have access to healthy food choices, we will lose our fundamental right to the pursuit of happiness. As a society if we no longer have access to health promoting foods,our physical and mental functionality becomes extremely compromised, which can cause our ability to pursue happiness to become greatly compromised and possibly lost. Pain in our body has a way of becoming a detriment to our ability to process thoughts. When as a society we no longer can process thought we lose our freedom of choice. This court decision concerning the access to health producing foods, will be a decision that could decide the fate of freedom as we know it. I admonish anyone who has been entrusted with the authority to decide this case, to not sell out our hard fought freedoms. The destiny of freedom not only in the USA but the world is in the balance. Justice must weigh the scale carefully! -------- Original Message -------- Subject: Join farmers vs. Monsanto From: "Carma Littleford" <lil4rd@yahoo.com> Date: Fri, January 27, 2012 5:34 am To: health@life4ustore.com On January 31, family farmers will take part in the first phase of a court case filed to protect farmers from genetic trespass by Monsanto’s GMO seed, which contaminates organic and non-GMO farmer’s crops and opens them up to abusive lawsuits. In the past two decades, Monsanto’s seed monopoly has grown so powerful that they control the genetics of nearly 90% of five major commodity crops including corn, soybeans, cotton, canola and sugar beets. In many cases farmers are forced to stop growing certain organic and conventional crops to avoid genetic contamination and potential lawsuits. Between 1997 and 2010, Monsanto admits to filing 144 lawsuits against America’s family farmers, while settling another 700 out of court for undisclosed amounts. Due to these aggressive lawsuits, Monsanto has created an atmosphere of fear in rural America and driven dozens of farmers into bankruptcy. Farmers need your voice today. Please spread the word. http://action.fooddemocracynow.org/sign/farmersvs_monsanto/?referring_akid=459.142855.v0pdmm&source=taf "
  5. Welcome to 'MrsS' Boudicca! Yes, there surely is a great wealth of information here. You'll find everyone here to be very helpful with most any difficulties you may come across! Sounds like you've got a really good headstart with your prepping. Do you have a relatively private area where you're able to hone your archery skills? Again, a big hearty !
  6. OldMaineBear! Oh my... Like many here, I never met you...but your wisdom and advice will long be read and treasured here. You are now receiving the eternal rest in our Father's Arms that have awaited you. Your earthly sufferings were only of this world. May you enjoy the lasting promises that exist in Heaven alone. In the days of grieving, may your family take great comfort, peace, and strength from Him alone Who provides. May their memories of your life be an inspiration, not soon to be forgotten.
  7. I've not read anything here regarding H.A.A.R.P. (High-Frequency Active Aural Research Program, the $30 million [Pentagon] project). Here are a couple of eye-opening articles that, seemingly, fit the bill: http://www.cuttingedge.org/News/n1207.cfm http://www.copvcia.com/free/pandora/haarp.html I don't put anything past our oppressing gov'ment.
  8. After the 3-day freeze we had in Tucson last February, and I lost most of my tangerine crop and about a third of my grapefruits, I thought I'd lost both trees as well. All the leaves dropped from the grapefruit...it did refoliate, but did not flower for a crop. The tangerine didn't lose many leaves...did flower...and produced some of the biggest tangerines I've ever seen! The one on the left is the 'normal' size that I usually harvest. As you can see, the one on the right has a circumference of 9 3/4 inches!! Unfortunately, I forget to weigh them. When I ate it, it was very sweet and juicy! Last night, I spent about 3 hours peeling, cutting and seeding 36 tangerines. Tonight, I processed them into 9 1/2 pints of yummy marmalade. I used a different recipe than last year, and I think this batch is so much better...just tangerines and sugar. Last year's included some water and a couple lemons...turned out too watery and I wasn't all that happy with the taste. I think DH might even like this batch...he doesn't like stuff with any sourness to it. Next week, a co-worker will bring in some ready-to-bake biscuits that we'll bake in the kitchen there, and I'll bring a jar of marmalade so our other co-workers can enjoy some. Yummmmmm!
  9. FYI: Rep. Ron Paul goes to bat for raw-milk consumers (click title for link) Ron Paul Defends Raw Milk in Iowa: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJQDoetDlV0&feature=related (BTW CLee...AZ is an open-carry and conceal-carry state...no CCW necessary. Helpful, but not needed.) Looking forward to buying raw milk when our Constitutional rights are restored!
  10. Woo-hoo! Congratulations!!! Praise Him from Whom all blessings come!
  11. Creek or crick? Youse-guys. Of an evening...morning...etc. Katty corner? Kattywompus.
  12. He may have done the same as I did before I passed it on...copied it all to a Word document, cleaned it up, re-copied it and pasted it into my outgoing email. Micheal?
  13. OH WOW! THAT'S A GONGA!! My grandma used to make a lot of doilies, tableclothes and bedspreads. She taught me how to crochet when I was 12...embroidery too. You're probably pretty busy, but if you get the chance to inventory and list parts of your find you're willing to pass on, I'm sure we all would be happy to see if there's something of interest we'd like to have! I'd be very willing to send $ to cover costs. Enjoy this blessing!
  14. Oh my! Unusual line of thought, but probably true... We're currently getting $.80/lb for cans here. I'll be sharing this one with my boss who is an avid brewer and 'conservative consumer'. He may just forget the home-brew and go for the store-bought! Thanks for the fodder...
