Terrorism & other Man made disasters • Re: Las Vegas attack

I do need to organize and add to first aid supplies, also need a bag for my truck.

Not just in the event of attacks but injuries. Little grandson fell and cut his chin, we could
not get it to stop bleeding so ended up at the ER, not necessary. I just ordered 2 cans of blood
stop spray and some blood clot stuff for larger wounds.

I like my knives super sharp, dropped one the other day and the blade grazed my knee and cut
a big gash, had a time getting the bleeding stopped, same day cut finger while cutting carrots.

But I need a first aid kit, we used to have one from hubs job but over time used up the stuff,
I like the ones in the steel case, looking at them now trying to decide if they have enough
essentials. I also need to organize all the stuff I have, its here and there.

Any suggestions for a good, fairly complete one. or a list and is it better to buy piece meal
and just have a small one in the vehicle?

Natural Disasters • Re: Mother Nature Strikes Again

And here in southern Indiana we need rain desperately.

We have had maybe an inch in the last 2 months. For the farmers its good they are
harvesting like crazy, but in big clouds of dust, looks like a dust storm. But my shrubs
and trees are suffering, big limbs breaking off.

Our grandson has breathing problems and right now we can hardly let him out doors,
the pharmacists said they are covered up with sick folks. For him its breathing treatments
when we can get him to take them or prednisone. But its effecting all of us DIL and DD
are both sick too.

So I sure hope we can get some rain, maybe this weekend. We will take some of yours.

I remember when hubs worked half way around the world for 15 years, I worried about that.
We pretty much concluded if something really serious happened he likely could never make
it back though he would try. I would have been on my own. He would have been with a group
of expats and they likely would be pretty resourceful but big limits too on what they could do.

I pray son gets out of there before it hits but don’t think he can, they have pushed
his leave date to almost a week or two before he is to report to his duty station
in the US in January. I’m scared sh****less, though I’m trying not to let on to him.
He is only 12 miles from the north.

He is also civilian and being replaced by military but they don’t want to let him
leave.

General Canning Topics • Re: Older Home Canned Food

September 24, 2017 PatrioticStabilist 0

2 years and 3 years old I generally have no problem with, home canned that is. I open it, smell and taste it, if its
even a little off I don’t eat it. But right now I’m eating jam that is 4 years old, its pretty dark but tastes just fine.

Commercially canned 6 months, if its older I’m a bit leery, generally it starts getting discolored and may have a
slightly off taste.

Just have to use some judgment, if we had no other food I’m sure my tolerance for older foods would let me eat the
stuff much older.

Since I am left leaning and listen to other then Fox also, I should be hearing all this anti prepper, etc rhectoric. Somehow I
am missing it, can someone direct me toward the media written and verbal I should be listening to? It must be some extreme
left wing deal kind of like the extreme right wing ones that are doing it. Just want to be better informed. Actually I hear no
talk one way or another about it.

As far as Korea, that scares me, son in S Korea says he is no diplomat, but talking to a nut case like Kim the way we are is
not the way to defuse that mess. Trump is pushing for war and that scares the hell out of me. Like DIL says, she is Russian,
she said China and Russia will side together and possibly India, I don’t see us being able to take on 2 world powers like that
alone. We have alienated almost everyone else. I find this very worrisome and am adding more and more to my store rooms.

I don’t know about others but I grew up “prepping”, have done it all my life. We lived in the country,
we always put stuff back to eat, back then it was feast and famine. I continued after growing up was
a way of life to me, always has been. Not my husband so much. Had a lot of years nowhere to have
a garden then in Texas 15 years plus ago I started planting one again. It was so hot and dry there, hard
to do, had to irrigate but still canned.

Have been doing it well over 20 years now, could not as much this year as I had, hope to feel better
next planting season.

They say more people are canning then ever, don’t know if that’s true but sure see lots of canning
supplies in stores now, so they must be selling. Lots of folks my age no longer can or choose not to
so I don’t know.

It’s an art, my DIL says she is interested but its lots of hard work and I’m not sure she will do it, time
will tell. Would love to pass gardening, canning, and sewing on to her. They did it in Russia but her
mom didn’t show her how.

So I don’t call it prepping, just our lifestyle. Same with hubby and all his DIY, just our way of life, we
are fairly self sustaining and could be moreso if we needed to be.

Hubs put the air brake controller on my new truck, took some doing, he had to drill through stuff to
mount it. He had the rest done, base plate mounted and electrical. He put on the battery
disconnect, durn hard to reach to hook up, but $2500 later its about ready to pull. Well you
never know. For now we are just talking a trip to New York to see the area where son is going
and they are going to be living. Looks like we are going to have to help them house hunt as
he is not going to get time off, bummer for him. First house he has ever bought and unless he
waits till spring, I would, he will be buying one mid winter, may get a good deal that why, but
not my idea of time to move.

Son is not being allowed to come home for Christmas, in fact keeping him in S Korea till about 2 weeks before his report
date in January. I’m thinking things are bad there. Would have been his first Christmas home in many a year, he and
all of us are disappointed. We are hoping things will change before then.

He has a lot of leave time he planned to use. But I’m sure they are not wanting to change people right now.

Son went to army was in 10 years, got money for college, completed his degree. Then
went to work for DOD, has a very good job now, terrific benefits, and if he can stay an
excellent pension. If you choose wisely and not go in for just cannon fodder you can
get a great education.

He took satellite/microwave repair, communications type and had to sign up for 5
years plus pass the testing to get in it. He has never been sorry is now a GS 13.
