Re: Storing Sealed Coffee Beans

I know some local coffee roasters here. They won't sell roasted beans (or ground coffee) that was roasted over a week previously. After a week post roasting, the coffee/beans get given away to be used for compost. (I know, as they gave me some "week-old" coffee beans for my garden.)

Re: MAY 2015 - What did you do to prep this month?

I've been picking about a pint to a pint and a half each every day of blackberries and boysenberries for the past week. Getting ready to put up some jams and pie fillings with them. Also, the chickens have been cranking out the eggs, so I've been selling the excess...the money from the egg sales goe...

Re: The WTO ruled Monday

While I can only raise small livestock (chickens and rabbits) for meat and eggs, I DO have a fairly large garden, (about 1500 square feet) and I'm also currently raising tilapia as part of my aquaponics system. For beef, last fall I bought a quarter of a local, organically raised, grass-fed steer. M...

Re: Fact or Fiction? 1911 jams a lot.

I have a Kimber (compact 1911 platform) and it has NEVER jammed on me. Used it for the NRA "Self-Defense in the Home" course, and it performed flawlessly. Not only that, but it is dead-on accurate. As for Glocks, I have small hands, and for me, they are like holding a brick. If I can't get...

Re: Had a chat today with a wwII USAF officer ...

My Dad also fought in both WWII and Korea. He was actually in it BEFORE the US was officially involved (the China Campaign). He NEVER spoke about those years. The stories I knew about from his time in the Navy (including a couple of plane crashes) I heard from my mother. Daddy never once talked abou...

Once the subterranean water has been drained, the ground above will have no support and will collapse (forming a sinkhole).

Re: Jim Richards - maybe 6 months?

Apparently, JPMorgan has been buying the crap out of silver from Comex (commodities exchange). Why would a bank be doing this, unless they knew something was up? Tens of millions of ounces? The other thing to consider, If one bank is buying up a ton of silver and mining is way down, why has the pri...

Re: Spying on you from your own camera

When my computer is not in use, it is turned off, and the lid is closed. Cell phone? It's a "stupid" phone (as opposed to a "smart" phone)...bare bones basic, no apps, no internet connectivity, etc. That's it for electronic devices for me. Just the way I like it.

Re: Vine Water

YES, the "water" from a grape vine IS OK to drink! I took a "Wild Edibles" class at a BOW (Becoming an Outdoors Woman) weekend in Ohio several years ago. During this class, one of the things they taught us was how to obtain water from grape vines. Very good knowledge to have in a...

Re: Baltimore

TV isn't going to show these brother protecting the police, putting themselves between the kids with rocks yesterday, or black people cleaning up the streets... There is a lot of money and power in fueling this fear and racial divide. http://i735.photobucket.com/albums/ww359/rsmclemore/l8fAR18_zpsr...

Re: April 2015 - What did you do to prep?

Planted the passionflower plant I had gotten in the male last week, transplanted the jalapenos and pimentos, and planted corn in one of the beds. Also picked up some marjoram and pumpkin seeds, and some seeds for sprouts.
