  1. Okay, I can get this reply box on my desk top computer but not my iPad???? So not feeling quite so left out LOL. I've always replied in the past from my iPad. Any suggestions for that?
  2. This article states that there is a significant number of false negative tests so let's hope the doctors did a couple tests so those who were in contact with him can self quarantine. Being a minister I would image there might have been many. https://www.contagionlive.com/news/when-is-a-negative-covid19-test-truly-negative
  3. they really are cute, especially when first born. Tiny bundles of giggle inducing joy! I never had trouble selling them so you won't have to make them meat animals. IF you don't get attached which I admit is difficult.
  4. Kappy, we have had many goats over the years both big and small. I haven't found pigmy's to be very productive when it comes to milking though they can be used for meat. The best small milk goat in my estimation is the Nigerian Dwarf. This is a true dwarf and are extremely thrifty with feed and can give an incredible amount of very rich milk for their small size. They also can have four or five babies at a time and easily raise them all. They can be a great defense against predators. And make nice pets. They do each have different personalities but are generally fairly quiet, another plus.
  5. All I can say, Dee, is that I've joined you a few times in that sand too . Little sister. Our van was only slightly scratched on a fender. When I first looked out at it though the van was buried under branches. Looked ominous. I took the picture after DGS cut the branch away. I never remember to take pictures right away! Food will definitely go up in price because of this storm. . The cascade effect will continue for a year or more because it's too late to replant. Corn and soy are staples in more ways than just food. There is ethanol, natural 'plastics', oils,
  6. Dee may check in on her own but she is okay too. Over 1/3 of Iowa's planted crop land was hit. Think of the ramifications that has on our food supply! The cascade that started with the Covid is continuing to fall. Please, everyone, look to the bigger picture. You are right, Mt. R. One of the first WW was no electricity. The first story writing challenge I put on the Fireside was about an EMP. I started it with a specific date when it supposedly hit and members wrote their stories starting from where they were then. We had some great stories. I believe they are still ther
  7. Thank you Jeepers. I wasn't all that scared while it was happening. DH and I stood in our built-in greenhouse and watched the tree limbs crash down around us. Maybe It's a Midwest thing LOL. That is, until some of those limbs started hitting the polycarbonate roof. This storm was so wide spread that most in our family were affected in some way: trees down, electric out, damage to homes, and etc. thankfully almost all are preppers. We will band together to do various clean up and repair and to restock lost preps. Suggestion.... If any of you have not practiced for
  8. We are okay here. Trees and limbs down everywhere around the property. (All over everywhere in the area actually) Electricity (and Internet) came back on this afternoon. We lost everything in two refrigerators but held the freezers with generators. Our worst problem was water as we didn't want to install the hand pump for the well for what we hoped would be only a few days. Thankfully we were able to get it from our son in a nearby small village. It was a mess with all electric out but water tower intact. US Cellular had no service and the whole last two days was like a scene from one o
  9. Happy birthday Ambergris and Louis too. Each birthday is special. Not because you are getting older but because you are getting wiser. 🎂🍧
  10. Happy birthday, DM4.  I hope your day is wonderful. :bdaycake::balloons:

      Awww! Thank you!

  11. °°°°° 😄 I've had mine for YEARS and didn't know that. Then found SOOOOOOO many more on the keyboard just by holding a vowel or a symbol ! WOW. Thanks Annarchy. I believe I just took a step forward from the dark ages ...
  12. It will be interesting to see where the numbers go after this holiday weekend. That might be the answer to is it spread by aresol and more outside or inside?
  13. 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))))))))))))
  14. 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.
  15. 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
