My wife and I will be installing a solar system this year.. We’re going to ordering a bunch of solarworld 270watt panels.. Made in the USA! Some of the highest quality panels made anywhere.. (google reviews on solar world if you doubt me)

The thing with big solar panels that are 3 x 5 feet is that purchasing just two or three of them is not worth the $300+ shipping cost to get them.. But we’re going to be installing 8000 watts worth of Solar Panel Maintenance system so the cost is minor in comparison.

So with that in mind, if anyone in the Michigan area is interested in purchasing a few solar panels for emergencies, if you want to piggyback on my shippment, you can get them for about $1 per watt.. thats ONE DOLLAR per watt.. So a 300 watt panel would run you about $300.. instead of $300 + $300 in shipping costs.

When I have pallets of panels shipped to me, it won’t make any difference if I order 30 of them or 40 of them.

So if anyone is interested, let me know…. huge savings here..

Hello,

May I know What are the economic advantages of using LEDs over conventional light sources??
Thanks in Advance.

North Korea launches missile, nearing Japanese waters
http://www.cnbc.com/2017/07/03/north-ko … ports.html

North Korea launched a missile on Tuesday, with Japan saying it appeared to have landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ), Reuters reported.

North Korea launched a missile on Tuesday, with Japan saying it appeared to have landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ), Reuters reported.

On its website, South Korean state news agency Yonhap cited South Korea’s military as saying it was an unidentified ballistic missile, launched from a location near the North’s border with China at 9:40 a.m. local time.

South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in ordered a National Security Council meeting after the launch, the Blue House, the South’s equivalent of the White House, said, according to Yonhap.

The meeting was to determine the country’s defense readiness against further incidents, Yonhap said.

Japan said there were no reports of damage from the missile, which flew for 40 minutes, Reuters reported.

Japan said it strongly protested the launch and that provocative actions from North Korea couldn’t be tolerated, Reuters reported.

Japan warns of security threat after three of four ballistic missiles land in its exclusive economic zone

Japan has lodged a protest and warned of grave threats to its security after North Korea launched four ballistic missiles on Monday morning, three of which fell into Japanese waters.

The exact type of missile fired was not immediately clear, but South Korea’s military said it was unlikely that they were intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), which can reach the US. An unnamed US official told Reuters that the US saw no indications that an ICBM had been tested.

According to the military in Seoul, the North fired the unidentified projectiles shortly after 7.30am local time (2230 GMT Sunday) from the Tongchang-ri region near its border with China. The area is home to the North’s Seohae satellite station, where it has conducted banned long-range rocket launches in recent years.

“The latest launches of ballistic missiles clearly demonstrate evidence of a new threat from North Korea,” the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, said. “The launches are clearly in violation of [UN] security council resolutions. It is an extremely dangerous action.”

The missiles flew about 620 miles (1,000km) before landing in the Sea of Japan – known as the East Sea in Korea – with three landing in Japan’s “exclusive economic zone”. A fourth splashed down just outside the EEZ.

Three of the missiles landed 186-217 miles (300-350km) from the Oga peninsula in Japan’s Akita prefecture, according to the country’s defence minister, Tomomi Inada.

Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, Yoshihide Suga, called the latest missile launch a “grave threat to national security” but added that there were no reports of damage to ships or aircraft in the area.

South Korea’s acting president Hwang Kyo-ahn said the launches were a direct challenge to the international community.

The US also condemned the launch, vowing that Washington was ready to “use the full range of capabilities at our disposal against this growing threat”.

“The United States strongly condemns the DPRK’s ballistic missile launches tonight, which violate UN security council resolutions explicitly prohibiting North Korea’s launches using ballistic missile technology,” the State Department’s acting spokesman, Mark Toner, said in a statement.

He added: “We remain prepared – and will continue to take steps to increase our readiness – to defend ourselves and our allies from attack, and are prepared to use the full range of capabilities at our disposal against this growing threat.”

North Korea conducted two nuclear tests and 20 missile launches last year – a sign, say experts, that the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, is redoubling efforts to develop a nuclear arsenal capable of deterring “hostility” from the US and South Korea.

In his New Year’s address, Kim claimed that the North was preparing to test fire an ICBM – a development that would dramatically raise the diplomatic and security stakes for Washington.

The US defence secretary, James Mattis, warned last month that any nuclear attack on the US or its allies in the Asia-Pacific would trigger an “effective and overwhelming” response.

North Korea has carried out five nuclear tests and dozens of missile launches despite six rounds of UN sanctions that began after Pyongyang’s first nuclear test in 2006.

Concern is growing that with every new test, North Korea is edging towards developing a fully functioning ICBM that, in theory, could strike the US mainland.

Donald Trump’s administration has yet to publicly articulate its policy towards North Korea beyond voicing support for its alliances with Japan and South Korea, home to tens of thousands of US troops. The US president has previously described North Korea as a “big, big problem”.

Monday’s tests were the second North Korea has conducted since Trump became president. Early last month, it test-launched a new intermediate-range missile – known as the Pukguksong-2, into the sea to coincide with Trump’s summit with Abe at his Florida estate.

“Not only Pukguksong-2 but newer independent strategic weapons will fly high vigorously in the sky off the ground as long as the United States and the puppet regime are going ahead with their nuclear threat to us and an exercise for invasion war against the North,” North Korea’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper, the mouthpiece of the ruling Workers’ party, said in a commentary last week.

Monday’s launches are believed to be in protest at the start last week of huge joint military exercises involving South Korea and the US that North Korea regards as a rehearsal for an invasion. Pyongyang threatened to take “strong retaliatory measures” after the annual military drills began last Wednesday but did not elaborate.

Kim ordered troops to “set up thorough countermeasures of a merciless strike against the enemy’s sudden air assault”, the state-run Korean Central News Agency said.

South Korea and the US insist that the Foal Eagle exercises, which will end in late April, are designed to test the allies’ preparedness for a serious military provocation from North Korea.

The launches could also be designed to communicate Pyongyang’s anger towards China, coming as Xi Jinping attended the 10-day annual national people’s congress in Beijing.

While China is the North’s only main ally and biggest donor and trading partner, Beijing has not attempted to hide its opposition to Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions.

Last month, China announced a suspension of all coal imports from North Korea until the end of the year, depriving Pyongyang of an important source of foreign currency.

On Monday China’s foreign ministry said Beijing opposed the missile launch but noted that it had taken place as the US and South Korea were holding “large-scale military exercises targeting North Korea”. “All sides should exercise restraint and not do anything to irritate each other to worsen regional tensions,” a spokesman added.

Xinhua, China’s official news agency, urged China, Japan, North Korea, Russia, South Korea, and the US “to go back to the negotiating table to end wrangles and wrestles and reopen the long stalled six-party talks that once brought the Korean Peninsula nearest to denuclearisation with a settlement acceptable to all”.

You guys are so right, and people just don’t think about something happing to them, its always somebody else until it does. I was that way for a long time, until back in 80, but it did really sink in until 83 with Hurricane Alicia, but even then, I did little for anything lasting more than a week or a few days more. Then in 85, I got my eyes opened up. It took some much for me to realize that being prepared, not just for myself; but for my family. I was alone now, my wife had passed away in 84, and as all things; you blame yourself. She was 36, not old at all. So, when I tell you, be prepared, I know what I’m talking about from the paying the cost of not being prepared.

So yes; I can understand why people don’t have things ready to provide for your family in time of distress, but I also know what it can cost you if you don’t, and that my friends; are costlier that any type preparation you might think of. Because; you’re going to pay up front or in the long run. I would rather do the long run any day of the week.

Around here, EVERY month is “preparedness month”. It’s partially due to history, partially due to geography and natural hazards (mostly wildfires…had one start just a couple of miles from me, due to a lightning strike…a VERY common occurrence here. So, people tend to STAY prepared.

As to my plans for September, pretty much the same as EVERY month…canning/dehydrating veggies and fruits, making spaghetti sauce to can, working on building projects (stable, hay/feed barn, chicken coops, goat shed/milking barn, other livestock housing, greenhouses, processing shed and smokehouse, etc.), fencing, cutting brush, and the list goes on. It’s a continual process, and no one month has any more preparedness emphasis than any other.

As most of you know; your government is trying to get in on our some of our action, they have declared September as Preparation Month. Telling Americans all across America to store up supplies incase of an emergency, (so they can come and take it) Now I am active in my community trying to get resident to have at least three weeks of food stored for any unforeseen event. And also looking for those would be prepper minded individuals that don’t know that they are preppers at heart. Trying to build my group, a slow process.

But what are you planning during this event. And no it will not expose you as a prepper, but it will help lessen the chance of them knocking on you door and asking for food or water should a disaster strike. Some people think they will just go to their neighbors house and get some food, I tell them that if they should come to my door, they would be turned away, because they had the same opportunity as I did, to store up for a crisis’s it was their decision to let their family go with out.

Toxic algae kills 2 dogs after swim in Napa County pond

[snip

A growth of blue-green algae in a pond in southern Napa County killed two dogs that swam in the murky water this week, causing local officials Friday to issue a county-wide warning.
It’s the second reported outbreak of dangerous algae in the Bay Area in a week — Oakland’s Lake Temescal was closed following a similar outbreak that was the same color.

Anyone who wants to jump in cool water and splash about at Lake Temescal is out of luck. For the fourth year in a row, the East Bay Regional Park District on Tuesday closed the popular lake off Broadway in Oakland because of a toxic algae bloom, w
Media: KTVU
The warning by the county’s board of supervisors urges would-be swimmers to avoid ponds, rivers and streams in the area that may be contaminated with the toxic blue-green algae.

The two dogs swam in a pond off Huichica Creek, located where Milton Road ends, and may have drunk the water, the officials said. Signs posted in the area warned of the danger. Algae poisoning in people can cause serious injury to the liver, kidney and nervous system if the affected water is swallowed. Exposure requires immediate medical attention.

The algae blooms, which can be blue-green, white or brown in appearance, are caused by sitting or slow-moving water with an abundance of nutrients, officials said. And camping filters, purification tablet or boiling the water does not make it safe to drink.

I have this one:

Zojirushi SN-XAE60XA Stainless Steel Thermal Vacuum Cooking Pot

I have two sizes. I was able to get from Amazon several years ago, but it looks like they only resell at this point.

I use the smaller one a fair amount. I bought the larger one first, but you have to have it fairly filled to keep the food in it hot. I bought after reading many reviews. Some reviews said other models did not stay hot Thermal cookers are commonly used in Japan, which was one reason I bought the model I did.

I actually use it more than I expected. It is about the equivalent of a slow cooker/hot pot, except you heat up on the stove and then put in the thermal cooker to keep it hot. Since it isn’t connected to electricity, there’s no chance of it causing a fire.

I believe there’s a thread on thermal cookers from years ago. You might look for that.

Armed ‘patriot’ accidentally shoots self in leg at Gettysburg battlefield
http://s.pennlive.com/GdjGcUE

GETTYSBURG–A patriot who brought a revolver to Gettysburg National Military Park Saturday amid rumors of desecration of memorials accidentally shot himself in the leg Saturday.

The man in his 20s accidentally triggered the revolver, which was inside a leg holster, when he temporarily rested the bottom of his flag pole against the holster, according to witnesses.
Park police were nearby when the shooting occurred and officers quickly applied a tourniquet that may have saved the man’s life, said Sgt. Anna Rose, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Park Police.

A tourniquet type device covered the wound on the man’s left thigh as he was loaded into an ambulance. He talked with paramedics and seemed in good spirits.

The gun then went off a second time about 1 p.m. when police were trying to unload the weapon. The gun was pointed at the ground in a field north of Meade’s Headquarters along the west side of Taneytown Road. A PennLive reporter witnessed the second shot, which occurred as visitors to the park milled nearby.

Officers said the gun was “bad” and they had a hard time getting the rounds out of the chamber. After they forced all of the rounds out of the revolver, they secured the gun.

Other patriots nearby said they had just talked to the man who was injured and that he came by himself to the park. He was not part of any specific group, but was just there as a patriot, they said.

Other patriots nearby said they had just talked to the man who was injured and that he came by himself to the park. He was not part of any specific group, but was just there as a patriot, they said.

Dozens of self-described Patriots came to the park about noon Saturday after hearing rumors that Antifa protesters might crash the park’s events and try to desecrate memorials. Members of Antifa caused a ruckus in Harrisburg recently at an Anti-Sharia rally and one member was arrested for swinging a wooden pole with a nail attached at a police horse.

The rumors on Saturday appeared to be just that: rumors, as no Antifa members were seen at Gettysburg park Saturday.

Instead, there were dozens of men in camouflage outfits, some carrying long rifles or handguns or both, milling about the park holding large American flags. They walked outside of the perimeter of the fenced-in “official” demonstration areas, which were nearly empty all day.

A handful of members from the Real 3 % Risen group sat in one fenced area wearing Confederate flag hats and t-shirts while a lone man with a sign aligning the Confederate flag with slavery and racism sat alone in another fenced area.

Armed ‘patriot’ accidentally shoots self in leg at Gettysburg battlefield
http://s.pennlive.com/GdjGcUE

GETTYSBURG–A patriot who brought a revolver to Gettysburg National Military Park Saturday amid rumors of desecration of memorials accidentally shot himself in the leg Saturday.

The man in his 20s accidentally triggered the revolver, which was inside a leg holster, when he temporarily rested the bottom of his flag pole against the holster, according to witnesses.
Park police were nearby when the shooting occurred and officers quickly applied a tourniquet that may have saved the man’s life, said Sgt. Anna Rose, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Park Police.

A tourniquet type device covered the wound on the man’s left thigh as he was loaded into an ambulance. He talked with paramedics and seemed in good spirits.

The gun then went off a second time about 1 p.m. when police were trying to unload the weapon. The gun was pointed at the ground in a field north of Meade’s Headquarters along the west side of Taneytown Road. A PennLive reporter witnessed the second shot, which occurred as visitors to the park milled nearby.

Officers said the gun was “bad” and they had a hard time getting the rounds out of the chamber. After they forced all of the rounds out of the revolver, they secured the gun.

This blood test will also tell you if your natural immunity to a virus is still good as well. (from having had the virus)

This isn’t just a immigrant issue. There are plenty of US citizens who refuse to vaccinate due to various reasons, the most popular being the fear of it causing autism which has been proven to be false.

My kids were all vaccinated. Youngest developed an allergy as she came out of toddlerhood, a very serious one (she’d had mild reactions prior that docs ignored). She can no longer be vaccinated. Vaccines for these deadly diseases don’t just protect you, they help to protect those around you who can’t have them themselves.

but keep in mind US born natives have achieved certain immunities and aren’t active carriers – it’s a wide open door in comparison to immigrants and a spectacular cluster frick when they are half dead illegals coming crawling under the border fences …. if you specifically prep for pandemics this is a major concern ….

Us born natives have not achieved certain immunities & most certainly CAN be active carriers. The only immunity I can think of that some Americans may have is to small pox & we pretty much got it the hard way. Let that strain of the virus mutate and you can kiss any immunity good-bye.

I am naturally immune to chicken pox. Doesn’t matter how many hundreds of times I’m exposed, I won’t contract the disease. (this has been well tested in practice as well as blood tests) But I’m a Typhoid Mary. I don’t catch it but I can spread it to others.

If someone is unsure of the state of effectiveness of their childhood vaccines, you can ask your family doc (or go to your county health dept) and request a titer be done for them. An easy & fairly inexpensive way to find out if they’re still working. They will inform you of which ones are no longer effective & you will only have to receive those vaccines.

Heck, I even have my dogs vaccines titered prior to revaccinating. My one dog Molly never had to be re-vaccinated for rabies after her 3 yr old dose, she lived to age 15. (but there were vet records stating her vaccine was still good that way) So far she’s the only one to have it last that long.

BOL’s and Retreats • Re: What to take to BOL and what to keep at home

July 1, 2017 headhunter 0

On gun safes, many of the less than $1000 safes regardless of the name on them (Remington, Winchester) are built by a company called Liberty. They are good safes and will discourage most. However , I received a call from a friend telling me he had been broken into. His safe was lying on the floor-it had been pried open. The perpetrators had gotten it on the floor and literally pried it open. Whoever installed the safe missed the floor joists and there was nothing in the wall studs to anchor the safe (Liberty did replace the safe). It had to be someone in the know because the cash and precious metals were gone and the guns stacked on the floor -several nice over and unders. He has up graded his safe and it is into the floor and wall. To have the lock on my safe work, the directions say the dial must be turned several times.
Grandma has her cabin in the woods on a river, the #1 daughter has her cabin to decorate, the S-I-L has his base camp for snowmobiling and 4-wheeling and fishing. For myself-I smile. There are getting to be many outdoor hand tools (a single bitted axe, a Plutaski axe, round nose shovels and square, rakes, hand tools for building). Most tools are from garage sales -the pennies on a dollar is true. The S-I-L presented me with several like new Coleman lanterns and stoves purchased on Amazon for $55. One emergency radio stays. That business of 2 is one and one is none leaves me a little uncomfortable. We only have one big Burkey-one generator-one reloader.
What to do about firearms and ammo has been a problem. All the adults have CC permits and there is a resident Mossberg 500. I find I’m still riding with a centerfire rifle and .22 rifle. If you dig far enough there are .22s buried around the cabin and a mix of shotgun shells.
Having two places really was bothering me, thinking about it I came to realize that without a major investment I wouldn’t have everything, however, I would be better off than a person trying to carry it all on their back, small car, or 4- wheeler.
Both home and the cabin have good solid neighbors. We have no plan to abandon the cabin for whatever reason should it become necessary. Storing fuels – for gasoline buy non-oxygenated gasoline/ pure gasoline it is old fashioned gasoline like farmers bought one year and used the next(there are sites on line that tell you who sells it). PRI-G for gas and PRI-D for diesel seems to work quite well,if you want a preservative.
