It’s always about gun laws, need more, the ones we have don’t work. The shooter passed all the checks.Did anyone think maybe this kid needed some help, medical, mental or a kind word? Not defending the kid and his actions, but the teens wanting more l…

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: April 2017 – What Did You Do To Prep Todayhis Week?

April 19, 2017 Christy 0

Rotated some food, took inventory of canning lids, we never have enough.
Made a pallet strawberry box, hope it works, we will see, tired of the frogs getting my strawberries, but love the frogs getting the mosquitos.
Deciding if we will get more chickens, the neighbors dogs cut our flock in half and got our rooster, so we are discussing this topic often. (More like how to tell the neighbor who does not speak English that we see your dog again you won’t see him again)
Garden is ready to plant, seedlings are ready, just waiting till May 1st to put them in the ground.
Got a pig panel to stake tomato plants up with, tired of the wind knocking the plants with cages over.
Planted lettuce, spinach, radish, carrots.

General Family Preparedness • Re: How do preppers keep from losing their minds?

April 19, 2017 Christy 0

Your idea is good, a lot of information in a little bit of storage area. But how long will your phone or Ipad thingy last? Most are good for two years. Batteries wear down and the whole thing needs replaced. Not sure you can store batteries. But maybe another device that is not being used. Spare device?
I prefer cards, real books, sewing, hand tools to build things with. Garden tools, small animals to take care, etc..

I really don’t think I would have the time to get bored, probably I will be looking for more time to sleep. Even now I don’t have time to get things done so when you work every day to keep food on the table literally, I don’t think you will get bored. Maybe kids that have the phone attached to their fingers, but oh my goodness, if it won’t work we may have teenage riots on our hands. Kids might look up and see the world.

Watched the movie Venture to the center of the earth and the kid was always looking for service on his phone, how ironic, not sure they put up cell towers down there, but hey you never know.

Personally I hate cell phones, don’t carry it with me, I do have one, but don’t use it for anything other than making a call. My boss could not get a hold of me at any hour so he bought me an I pad, I turned it off and put it aside, he still can’t a hold of me! My time is my time and I won’t be tied to any electronics. I say this as I type this on the company computer.

The idea of having books on hand is good, but I prefer them printed. (Yes, I work for a printer)

Check In Here Kansas Preppers • Re: New to NE KS.

April 19, 2017 Christy 0

Very few people from KS period still use this sight, I think they have went to that FB thing, not on it, can’t read it, so not sure if the Kansas people still exist, as soon as I saw that, someone will pop up. Email the moderator he is from up in that area and will lead you to the KS people.

General Food Topics • Re: Red Feather Canned Butter

April 19, 2017 Christy 0

I have paid more than that, so that is a good price, Yoders bacon and the canned cheese are better than I can can up. You could always do the canning butter in a jar thing (that’s an iffy thing for sure, do it in your pressure canner, not your oven), but when it’s all said and done, the Red Feather butter is just as good and price wise it’s cheaper than doing it yourself.

Natural Disasters • Re: CA: Oroville dam collapse feared

February 15, 2017 Christy 0

So you live at the bottom of millions of gallons of water and you don’t have a plan in place?

Years ago we lived within 20 miles of a nuclear plant, every year we had a “drill” put on by the county. Everyone would participate, you had your stuff ready to go, you knew where you were to go and where your kids would be, so forth and so on. They even evacuated the hospitals, long term care, schools, businesses, everything. Plus the nuclear plant shut down every year for repairs.

So why don’t they do that for those living below an ocean? And where is the prepping mindsight for those people? Leaving pets, medicines, etc. Have they never heard of a bug out bag? Did FEMA not give them a web sight to go to after Katrina? Am I the only one that has our state government tell us to be prepared for 3-7 days in case of an emergency? We just got through living off of gennie power for a week after an ice storm, no big deal.

Sounds like a prime spot for a prepping convention/fair. The prepping business people should have already done bug out bags and get over there and make you some money.

Just another reason I live in the midwest. Our water is underground, our problem is getting it up, not having it come and wash us away.
