  1. Ambergris,. I have relatives and friends all over the country as well as in several other countries. I know it takes time and effort to post these numbers and I wanted you to know how much I have appreciated your posts. I will understand when you discontinue doing this for whatever reason but thank you for sticking with it this long. It has helped a lot of us to come to grips with the progress this enemy has made. ((((((((( Ambergris))))))))))))
  2. OOTO I use Ghee and it can be used most places you can use butter but don't expect it to taste like butter. To me it taste a bit like browned butter. Sort of nutty. You can make your own easily from butter if you want to try it. Instructions can be found online.
  3. Good evening, Jeepers. I haven't posted in a while but I have been reading. Your questions sort of called me out of lurkdom. I can probably answer them all but I'll answer my favorite one. Micro greens are basically small greens that are grown densely on small amounts of soil or special grow pads. The greens are cut to use when small and tender. They produce lots of baby greens that are really tasty and healthy. They are usually cut once when they reach the right size. There are also shoots that are grown from various seeds and are usually a bit bigger. They, too, can be grown in a small amount of soil or on grow pads. Sunnies, sunflower seed shoots, are cut just before their second, true set of leaves form and are a nutty sweet greens. Pea shoots are grown in a similar way but those can be cut several times and keep growing. Wheat and other grass is another form of shoots. Often the grasses are used in juicing. Plus cats love some of those to nibble on. Then there are sprouts which are seeds grown in a sprouter tray or jar. They are soaked in water for various length of times, fifteen minutes to overnight, to begin with. Then they are drained, rinsed, and drained again two or three times a day and left just damp enough to grow. There are dozens and dozens of sprouting seeds and mixes. A taste to please almost anyone. I almost always have at least one jar setting upside down in the dish drainer with sprouts growin in them. It's a no soil, little work, way to enjoy fresh foods. They don't need light unless you want a couple hours in the sun to green them up a little. They are great as salad, or on a sandwich, in stir fries, and etc. and they are extremely nutritious. I love sprouts. Every prepper should learn about micro greens, shoots, grasses, and sprouts. Stealth gardening at its easiest. Does that answer your first question? Can you tell I'm a fan?
  4. Happy birthday, Jeepers. ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿจ
  5. My grand daughter tested positive for the coronavirus over a month ago. She was able to self isolate at home even though she was pretty sick with it. She works as a nurse in a hospital and isn't allowed to go back to work until she has two consecutive negative tests a week apart. She has had three positive test since then even though she is feeling better. Even if the test she has next week is negative she will still have one more week to go before she can even begin to think of her life getting back to normal. She has not seen her family for Almost two month because of her well grounded fear she would bring it to them. She was told that it was pretty normal for people to test positive and therefor infective for this long after they felt better. How many people who have had the virus but didn't have follow up tests are spreading it for weeks after? Not a lot of good choices for our country. Open the economy and risk a worsening of the virus and the resultant huge number of deaths or keep it closed and risk a total economic crash as has never been seen in the history of the world where people will die by huge numbers due to a total change in life circumstances that very few people, or countries including our own, are prepared for. Stay safe everyone and prepare for more than just food in the pantry.
  6. . May you have many more!
  7. According to AARP if you get SS direct deposited the stimulus check will automatically be deposited there but might be later in the month?
  8. I checked at the IRS and it told my my "payment status was unavailable ". .
  9. Thank you, Ambergris and LS. The GD is pretty miserable with it. Something I didn't know about the testing though. She will have to have two negative tests before she can considered as being over it. She is very close to her kids and is more worried about them (and missing them) than about herself. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. Hugs
  10. I have been following your numbers daily and have really appreciated it. I know it's a lot of work for you. Thank you so much for all you do to help us stay informed. If you don't post it perhaps there is a way to make a sticky somewhere with the links. (((((((Ambergris)))))))) My granddaughter, who is an OB/ delivery nurse, has coronavirus. She is self quarantined at home in Texas while her three children are with others. She is young and healthy but I am still worried. Please everyone stay cautious.
  11. We have an ex-nurse sewing masks for the small local hospital near us. She is using interfacing material encased between layers of cotton. Not sure if that works better than just plain cotton but these are washable yet hold their shape and filtering ability.
  12. I know only too well how precious hope is. Great news,
  13. You are welcome MtR. I only wish I could find something as direct for the Illinois tax due date. You need to have your federal taxes done before you file Illinois forms yet so far I can't find anything on the Illinois Internal Revenue site where it directly says that the date has also been changed.
  14. When all else fails go to the source.. I just went to the Internal Recenue Service web site and this is what I found. WASHINGTON โ€” The Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service announced today that the federal income tax filing due date is automatically extended from April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020 There is also info about tax changes there in case anyone is interested.
  15. The state of Illinois is basically on lockdown with all non essential businesses shut down. All people who do not fullfill an essential service are required to shelter in place. All people are allowed to go out for groceries, pharmacies, health services,, to essential jobs, and many other services so not total isolation. They are asking for people who need to go out follow social distancing and safe health practices. The order is until April 7 th but may need to be extended. If anyone is able to watch the govenor's broadcast I strongly suggest it. One of the doctor's, Dr Landen?, who spoke made a very very good case and explanations for taking this step. Stay safe.
