I did make a small trip to WM to restock a couple normal pantry items. Today hubs said he could see my concern and offered to drive me to Costco and Aldi just over an hour away. We restocked some canned items we had rotated out of our normal storage like fruit, chicken and tuna. Other than that we aren’t doing any other major stocking up. Hubs feels like we are pretty set. Oh, we did order potassium iodide tablets – something that we’ve never prepped before. Just a precaution.

I seriously worried they were sending some chemical stuff up with those rocket launches and
wondered if that was what was making grandson so sick. Son and DIL had been sick too.

12 miles from that mess was to close for civilians to be living. I’m scared to death what can
happen, the nut shoots off something and we respond, where does it end. Lots of other
countries may join in. There is no good way to put this genie back in the bottle once released.

I was waiting until September to do the gas exchange and restock but I might not wait now.
Read an article about NK and it suggested that we pay VERY CLOSE ATTENTION to the chemical and biological weapons stockpiles of NK. These stocks make it harder to plan military action since if we focus on nukes NK can just resort to Chem/Bio. Baically there are a lot of targets to hit if we don’t want to be hit by WMDs.

I’m going the opposite direction! My house is under agreement and have an agreement on another house, so trying to use up as much as possible.

Hoping nothing happens for a year or more, to give me time to get up to speed again. (Or whatever is going to happen happens before the first of October, when the move is scheduled to happen.)

I did a couple of online orders this past week and stocked up on some stuff locally today……batteries, canned meats, tinfoil (yes, really), some sale items, salt, pepper, candy, and a few other things. It seems like every August there is something that makes me feel the need to stock up. Last year it was the election….this year is the little fat man…. Hopefully next year things will be “normal”??? I dunno, maybe it’s just b/c I tend to slack off during the summer months. But yeah, feeling that need to get it together before something happens.

This weekend I have some spare time so I think I will be organizing some things and taking a serious inventory.

Just talked to son, said he is very very busy, of course, no details.

His dad said be careful, he showed us the face masks he has, his dad said that doesn’t help for
radiation, he said that’s what this bag full of pills is for. I’m trying to be very positive, he just
does not worry. I guess he would not be there if he did. But I’m sure they are prepared as
they can be.

DIL said South Korea has all kinds of underground shelters plus the subways too. I’m sure they
can shelter a lot of people.

N Korea is playing such a dangerous game will end up in nuclear war and there may not be any
returning from that.

I am decent on some things and need work on quite a few others. One week wouldnt remedy it however. All I can do is sit back and watch and if something seems imminent then Ill have to do my best to stock up on a few other things. What worries me most is that my Daughter and SIL are in northern Japan in the military (they are both serving) Other than the troops in SK they are probably the closest to NK. I do hope that if NK does attempt anything that Trump knocks the snot out of the brat in charge over there.

Yes. Plus I read the 4th turning. Which has a compelling argument for a collapse around 2020-2025. I also found a website http://www.deagel.com that was interesting. Of course I am still trying to see if it’s legitimate but supports the generational thought. I noticed the 5 countries that started the bank in 2016. China Russia India South Africa and Brazil all seemed to fair well during this time. Anyway. Would like someone smarter than me to comment.

Water rotation planned now that I’ve been putting off…..100g at about 7 months old. All my WaterBricks are going on 1 yr….

Bye-bye Sunday. Not much more to do considering we’re in the “Glow-Zone” on the closest coast here. :D

Not much more to do considering I’m not to worried about it. Nothing you can do but watch anyways if already prepped….

Interesting times though. It’s about damn time someone rattled that little piss-ants saber. :tank:

Not canning as much as usual, DIL and grandson here so kind of hard to do.
He is only 2.

My potatoes did nothing, dug one sweet potato vine, nothing! Hubby said he
may have put to much of one kind of fertilizer on that made green tops and
no bottoms.

I have lots of tomatoes but never seen any with so many seeds, made 7 quarts
of spaghetti sauce and just to many seeds, not sure if I will make more. Going
to put up more green tomatoes, only have 5 quarts left. These were not my
usual varieties and ended up with some odd looking giant cucumbers. Green
beans were good.

Didn’t get my corn done before DIL came going to see if hubby can get some
still that is good, want to do 5 more dozen.

We have food but would love to add more.

On top of that had an abnormal EKG, had to get a stress test and it came out
ok. Guessing a fall I took couple of months back hurt my shoulder and messed
up some ribs on the left side, has really hampered me working in the garden
and getting up to speed for winter. Not good. I am going to pain management
for osteo arthritis and degenerative disk disease and they are a farce, so gues
I have to learn to live with it. Meds are killing my stomach.

The guy has it all wrong. The ones who are “mooching off civil society” are the ones who refuse to work, but want the rest of us who DO work to support their lazy butts. WE aren’t the ones who are delusional, because we see how shaky the whole house of cards is, and are taking steps to take care of ourselves and our families when the whole thing collapses.

The delusional ones are those who refuse to see where things are headed, and believe that things can and will continue as they have been, and refuse to do anything to protect themselves against the inevitable.
