Re: Canning Vegetables

Even though my Mother and Grandmother water bath canned everything, including meat and fish, I don't. No, none of us got sick, no one died either. I just think that now that there are alternative ways to do things and so many new bacteria and diseases, why take a chance. I did include directions for...

Re: Extension office new look at canning

The problem with having starch in the food canned is that the temperature may not reach the correct heat in the center of the jar. That is why I always have my ingredients that may have some starch in them boiling hot when placed in the jar and the jar placed in the canner with also boiling water al...

Re: Article on hunting, gathering and population.

Oh yeah, I could have gotten at least 2 bears recently if I had actually been in survival mode. One grizzly was within 10 feet and one black bear only a couple of feet farther away. Hitting the panic button on a keychain certainly does panic a bear. I didn't feel like butchering out a bear and the g...

Re: Article on hunting, gathering and population.

Excellent advice, everyone. People that don't know how to garden ahead of time will probably starve and people that don't know how to hunt and care for what they kill if they have the good luck to actually kill something will probably starve or die of food poisoning. If not food poisoning, they may ...

Yes, theoutback, there have been ag check points entering California ever since I was a kid at least and I am as old as dirt. They are afraid of fruit diseases and bugs getting in to their fruit growing areas

Re: shotgun as a hand out gun

I'm in favor of the revolver also, but shotguns are certainly more scary to the person facing it IMO. So yes, the shotgun would be a great handout gun. Very nice of you to train and supply some people and it should increase the safety of your area. Best wishes.

Re: Meeting With A Builder & Questions

Ah well, maybe he was referring to me as I have not read that particular book and do not follow some rules although I do live in a very nice large home I constructed without knowing I was an idiot. Since it has been standing now for almost 14 years and still is doing great, easily heated in winter w...

Re: What happens when a Man has too much time on his hands?

That is the very best thought out and then carried out item I have seen. You did an amazing job and you have really designed it well on the inside, also. Now lets see, if you add the symbol and a container with a bit of dry ice under it as you travel down the road, you will get everyone out of your ...

Re: Are we too old?

Lady, if he is only humoring you, he will thank you so much later. I only have my social security and I still manage a little bit extra each month.

Re: Firearms in the home

From my earliest memories, there were always guns around our home. Of course we lived in the woods and there were never people in the house that didn't also know how to use a gun. Us kids knew we would get our behinds warmed to the extreme if we so much as touched one. I raised my kids the same way....

Re: Why Your Gluten Free Diet Isn’t As Healthy As You Think

I'm with Aunt Bee on this one. All the gluten intolerance seemed to show up about the same time the GMOs were.

Re: How to open can w/broken tab

I keep one in my hunting license packet in my pocket. But one under the lids on the #10 cans of freeze dried stuff is handy, too. The new ones don't hold up as well as my antique one from old C rations.

Re: CRANBERRY'S

Depending on the size and firmness of the berries, you can place a flat cookie sheet or board over a single layer and pass a sharp knife across, under it and cut. Same with small tomatoes.

Re: Are we too old?

See? You are already doing better than over 50% of the people in this country. I am 71 and grew up doing all this stuff and still doing it and more that I have learned along the way. I seem to add a new career to the ones I continue doing every decade or so. You have gotten a lot of excellent advice...
