I look for more pro-trump supporters finally comming out and also looking for more violence to begin. Is this the start of the revolution, I know, the Russians are involved.

Just read about the clashes between the two.

The Left calls them fascists.
The Right calls them snowflakes.

And both sides think they are right.
Or fighting for America.

Yes. This is going to get dumb.

And I think you are correct Rickdun; It is also going to get more violent.

Food & Water • Re: mushrooms …

March 5, 2017 arkieready 0

morelhunters.com has a map tracking current finds. We soak morels in salt water to drive any bugs out. Then dredge in seasoned flour and sauté in butter and/or bacon grease.

Beware! There is a false morel–for a long time I thought it had no look alike.

There is also a large fungus the Cherokee people pronounce “wishee” but I do not know how it is spelled.

I have eaten morels, wishee, and “hickory chicken” ( I guess it’s another name for hen-of-the-woods or shaggy mane. Very good. I’m not confident enough to hunt the latter two.

March 5, 2017 lndtrdr 0

Walking through the woods I would sometimes see a yellow growth on old dead trees. I thought of them as lichens because of their shape. Later I learned they were mushrooms, and were often called “sulfur shelf”. Then I was surprised to learn they are edible and often called “chicken of the woods”. I never imagined that something with that color and shape could be edible. The scientific name is laetiporus sulphureus.

In Istanbul they had a similar looking salad they called Russian salad. In Vladikavkaz and in Istanbul they didn’t have any sausage in it and it didn’t have much taste. Here we have several varieties of “potato salad” with similar ingredients, but I’ve never seen it with peas here. It’s common to add mustard and pickles. If it’s made right it can be delicious even without the sausage.

And if war is waged via computer software & robots………just how long will such wars last? How much more costly are they going to be? I would imagine considerably.

I have an issue with taking the humanity out of warfare. I don’t like seeing our people in harms way but at some point the cost becomes to high & peace is sought out. How does that happen in the cyber world or robotics? Ethics? A computer program or a robot doesn’t “feel”…….zero emotions (and they should never have them), hence no remorse no matter how vicious the attack may be ordered.

I’m breaking the timeline already;) We let this run about a week. It got pretty sour. Definitely a pickle! We were trying to find a way we could like sweet potatoes. We found it! This stuff is wonderful.

It is pretty too!

Image

Got almost three quarts. Pint shy. Had a little brine left over. I was going to save Brian some but I got carried away and drank it all. There is more so he didn’t go without. He is not a fan of drinking pickle juice but he does love the brine from our live ferments.

Image

This is a keeper. We have given some away and it is surprisingly popular. I have trouble stopping when I start eating it. Not bad for a food we have always hated! We WANTED to like sweet potatoes, we know they are super good for us.

We are not having as much luck with cranberries. Tried a spiced cranberry ferment. It tasted bitter to us. We tossed it over the hill. Wonder if the possum ate it?

Kitchen tool review. Alaskan Knife Company / The Ulu Factory. Maple and walnut board. We oiled it seriously before use. LOVE it! Sweet potatoes were no problem. Got the leather knife case. Well made. Save work sharpening the knife and keep me from cutting myself when I root around in the drawer.

Also got the sharpener. It has a guard so I won’t cut myself sharpening the curved blade. Nicely thought out. Finger grips molded in handle for secure grip. Not cheap. Worth every penny!

We got the 8 inch board set. I would not like a smaller one personally.
http://shop.theulufactory.com/Bowl-and-Ulu-Sets_c14.htm

Image

Didn’t take long.

Image

I made a brine for this. 1 tablespoon kosher salt per quart of water. Learned after the fact that sweet potatoes will develop their own brine if mashed around with the salt and left for a bit. Supposed to anyhow. Got a shot of the Ulu knife sharpener too.

Bag in the jar, more brine in the bag, filled with liquid to just below the narrowing at the top of the jar.. Redneck follower. Keeps veggies under the brine.

Image

Covered the whole thing with saran wrap. Put a rubber band around it all. Set the lid on top. Put it in a big bowl in case it spews. It did not but better safe than sorry! This works really well for us.

Sweet potato ferment. Sweet peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, onion, fresh ginger, fermented garlic paste, whole coriander, gochugaru (korean red pepper, cayenne works too). Prep work is messy.

Image

Getting it organized.

Image

Prepped veggies, sliced and tossed in stainless bowl with spices.

Image

Spice mix. I tried putting some of the sweet potatoes in salt water to see if it would slow down the discoloration.  Did better to do them last.

Old news here, picking up where we left off and life has been galloping right along ever since! Think I will take it in order, as it happens. Feel free to offer feedback about this? If I fall behind it is easier to keep like topics together. I think that might just be a drag this round. LOT of build stuff and I do want to share it. Useful information across processes and materials, as usual.

Crescent brand channel locks from TSC! I got one for each hand. Seems to be how I need to use stuff like that. Nicely made. I think they are adorable!

Love my tiny tools. When I need them nothing else will work. My small hands fit into places Brian’s don’t. Nice addition to our collection.

Image

All I need is a welding helmet. Got knee pads, coveralls, safety glasses, goggles, face shield, respirators for dust, grinding and welding, layout stuff of my preference including a bright headlight, gloves that fit my little hands in an assortment of materials, hearing protection, tape measures and more. I wrap my face shield in a pillowcase. Safety goggles get wrapped in soft cloths and stowed in a ziplock.

Going to try Brian’s new helmet out. If I like it I will order one. Not giving up the one at the shop. So I’m mobile. Half Brian’s shop is already AT Stamler so I don’t need to haul tools, thank goodness!

Agreed with your statement regarding over reacting. Hope you didn’t that was my intent on posting this, regarding a pandemic potential. I just think we should should be aware and know this is nasty, killing bug over there.

I think what is important (and I know you follow these things) is that OF THE PEOPLE it HAS infected … 40% of them have died. Granted that’s NOT 40% of the TOTAL country’s population … but 40% kill ratio for those who have gotten infected is substantial. IF this virus happens to go H2H (‘human-to-human’), then that 40% is a pretty big deal and it will take little to nothing to make that % even bigger. -k

Human bird flu is not the main problem here anyway. It’s food. Kill off substantial chickens and add to the fact the oceans are being depleted fast and it leaves you with a major famine problem worldwide. Chicken, ducks and geese represent a large portion of the daily protein diet of the chinese people.

As an example we have family in Taiwan where food prices are soaring. They have cut off imports from Japan since some of the received imports have been radioactive. One carrot can cost $4. US or 120 NT. One stem of broccoli $3. US . one potato $2 US., 4 thighs at KFC, $17 US., one 4 ounce fish $2, US. or 600 NT. One small whole raw chicken about $20 US. The poor people are screaming. Exchange rate is about 32 NT to one US dollar. Grain foods are still reasonable. These prices are up several hundred percent over what they were a couple years ago. My wife goes over to spend some time with her dad every winter.

Thanks Rock! I have read the same thing and it is a huge problem, one that will soon come our way. At the moment food is dirt cheap in America due to the inflated value of the dollar. Swamp

March 4, 2017 Photon Guy 0

From what I know Texas is overall a gun friendly state but Im wondering about Austin. I heard it said that Austin is a blue dot. While Texas as a whole is very red, Austin is blue. That being said is the anti-gun attitude commonly associated with liberals prevalent in Austin? I visited Austin and I must say its quite awesome. Of the places I’ve been in Texas, Austin is my favorite. So I hope they’re gun friendly like the rest of the state even if they are an overall liberal city.

March 4, 2017 orangetom1999 0

Exactly Dirk,

Was taking me back imto odd and unusual calibers, something I’ve been trying to get away from.

That was my concern in learning to roll my own for the 41 magnum…the end costs. But I found out I can get the brass locally at the BASS Pro and occasionally get a bag and put it away. Buy bullets in bulk…and also reload Hornady Hollow points and cast lead gas checks. Brass availability was the deciding factor for me here. I’ve put back about 1200 cases to date…Starline.

It is a type of freight train up close, the 41 Mag… but not like the .458…or the .50 Beowulf.

Costs are indeed a big factor…in these types of tools. But when you badly need the freight train….the costs are secondary or not at all.

I can understand why SF would want them close up and personal…for that very freight train effect.

Thanks,
Orangetom

I’ll admit that the overall concept is appealing.
Watched some videos on the Shockwave, and it seems to lend itself better to the 12 gauge minishells (Aguila has a 1+” version).

Two different opinions from two different gun shops on the minishell ammo:
1) If fired at you, you can catch them and throw them back,
:gunshooting::sleep:
or
2) Plenty of power, but often don’t cycle reliably.
:thumbdown:

(Opinion #1 was obviously running on excessive testosterone. Opinion #2 didn’t give me confidence. I’ll wait for some more online reviews from real users.)
