  1. People are tired of lockdowns and mandates. They are fed up with being told what to do or not do. They want their “normal” lives back. They need the economy opened. The numbers here in the US, which may or may not be correct, are down. We have quite a percentage of people vaccinated. Despite all that I feel we may be doing what India did by opening too soon and too fast. I pray I am wrong and Covid will soon be no worse than an annual cold/flu to deal with but I don’t see that happening any time soon.
  2. eatlocaltexas. Great suggestion. I’ve used the magic eraser for lots of things too. to Mrs survival.
  3. I believe the commercial use of antifreeze of various types came about in the 1920's but I was thinking more about the possible use of a used radiator today. There are people who might consider trying it now.
  4. In a quick online search it appears that the main vaccines used here were developed and are manufactured in various places and not just in the USA. They ARE foreign made or at least might be. hmmmmm
  5. I had thought of the lead but also of the antifreeze that might have been in a used one. That is definitely poisonous.
  6. It appears that covid vaccines are coming out of the wood work with varying levels of efficacy. So far only a few are allowed in the US. How are they chosen and who chooses? Are they only made in America ones? It does appear that the whole pandemic has been mismanaged from the beginning, not just by our country but by the world at large.
  7. DGD in Virginia said one of their two gas stations ran out of gas and the other had long lines of cars yesterday but the lines thinned by last night and they were able to get gas. Only a few cents higher so far.
  8. Beautiful. Really beautiful.
  9. If it’s true is it paranoia?
  10. People truly are guinea pigs it seems. But we have been for a long long time. This tells of some of them but there's more to be found if you search deep. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unethical_human_experimentation_in_the_United_States Wiki might not be the most reliable source but it definitely gives one a place to start searching. One such 'study' I read about (not sure where now) was that 'they' sprayed a substance in the skies over CA, I believe it was in the 30's, and then required doctors to report certain 'symptoms' to the health department. It turns out the
  11. Very good vid MM. I, too, taught traditional food skills at one time in my life. We didn’t have You Tube then though. Come to think of it, we didn’t have much for internet.
  12. PatriciaY. Welcome to Mrs Survival. Nice to have you join in. This thread is 9 years old but it’s always nice to bump the older one up and revisit them. I’m sure there are many of us on here that have in the past or still can using older recipes. Perhaps some of them will chime in here. I go far enough back in canning that I have even water bathed low acid vegetables for hours to preserve them. I wouldn’t do that now unless there was a desperate situation. We don’t all of us necessarily believe everything the government recommends but we do try to encourage safety her
  13. I’m not sure that’s a apt statement. Perhaps they are divorcing specifically because he DID try to rule his family. Loving husbands do not rule their wives or their families. They partner lovingly with them.
  14. It doesn’t appear to be abating just changing from state to state and country to country. Is anyone seeing a specific pattern that might indicate if any particular action makes it worsen or lessen?
  15. I am so sorry to hear they are having to go through this. These decisions are often taken out of our hands by a loving Lord who knows what He is doing. Rehab might be paid for by Medicare for a short time but long term care is terribly expensive. Perhaps there is help through the state. I will continue to pray for them all.
  16. I happened on an interesting apocalyptic series by Susan Beth Pfeffer. They are for young adults but I am really enjoying them. I believe there are four of them but there might be more I haven't found yet. They were written in the late nineties. The premises of the books are that the moon has been hit by an asteroid and has been knocked closer to earth. That in turn causes a change in the tides which in turn causes earthquakes, tsunami's, volcano eruptions, and all sorts of other changes. The ash from the multitude of erupting volcanos covers the sun's light and nothing will grow. The firs
  17. I trust in my ability to read/learn from BOTH sides of an issue. Not just one and not just mine. There is really no way to win a debate unless you thoroughly understand your opponent’s viewpoint. Perhaps even argue it for them just to make sure I am not being so rigid I am losing my ability to make logical decisions. Then I prayerfully base my decision on what is right for me, in my circumstances.
  18. I am not one of those people but I know some who are. Those people are going to love the designation. Thanks!
  19. Jamesjohn, Welcome to Mrs. S. Nice to see you posting. I have a couple of older Moulinex hand cranked ice cream makers that I love. The pan has to be frozen ahead of time as well but I don't find it too difficult to find space for a couple of pans as Dh and I both love ice cream. I sometimes just stick some frozen item inside of them to make space. We try to eat healthy though and have found we can make a passable sherbet out of almost any soft fruit. Even canned applesauce will work. If we mix coconut milk (or cream or yogurt) with the fruit and perhaps a bit of honey if any sweetener i
  20. I ripen mine in a brown paper bag.
  21. Inflation has many causes. Here's a good article that explains the various types and who profits from it. https://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/111314/what-causes-inflation-and-does-anyone-gain-it.asp
  22. It's a PARTY! Have a great day MM.
  23. None available or is it that there's not one that will earn anyone enough money to make it worth their while to push it? I'm not saying this in a derogatory way but in a logical one. Corporations, and that includes pharmaceutical ones, are rarely a not for profit organization. They are in it to make money for their stockholders. Stockholders 'invest' in a company to bring them a return on their investment. The company, in turn, wants to keep their stockholders happy so they will not take their money out of the company and put it somewhere it WILL earn money. There are many types of inves
