Re: More Gun Laws?

I agree with Rickdun, the problem is no discipline in the home. There was an article on Fox a couple of days ago that said the Teacher of the Year from Florida said it is not a gun problem but a parenting problem. Loved the article, i will try and find it to post. She basically said for parents to ...

Re: Smokers, propane vs electrical vs others

When I get some of the more immediate projects done (animal housing, getting the well on solar, etc.) I plan on building an old-fashioned wood-fired smokehouse (and all that mesquite we have growing around the place would be perfect fuel for it! here's a dynamite site for figuring out which directi...

Re: 5-Minute Fire Starter

Haven't found those here, but what I Have been doing is stuffing empty TP tubes with lint from the dryer screen. Makes handy fire starters for the woodburners. Best part, is they're FREE, as well as reducing my trash a bit.

Re: 2018 FEBRUARY - What Did you Do To Prep This Week/Month?

The rain stopped all our outdoor plans, we were stuck inside with plenty to do, but nothing of the prepping variety. :) I hear you, CIN...it's been raining here pretty much all week, so we've pretty much been living in a mud pit, and outdoor things are NOT getting done. Hubs decided he wanted to go...

Re: Hello from southern california!

don't try to bring CA to where ever you end up. I am moving to a small town, quite a few CA have moved to the same area. Now they are wanting to change local laws a codes to what they left in CA. Drives the locals nuts and puts the CA folks on the outs real fast. You may not have a starbucks on eve...

Re: 2018 FEBRUARY - What Did you Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Did a Sam's/Costco run. Got a couple more packs (45 rolls each) of TP (Have 5 of those, plus 8 or 9 24 packs of another brand), plus stocked up on some OTC meds, garbage bags (then got home and found I already had 3 large boxes--what's another 200 garbage bags...I'm set for the next several years no...

Re: Stockpiling OTC Meds/Cold Meds/Etc.

Since I had to go to the city today anyway (was taking DD and SIL to the airport) did a Sam's/Costco run while I was there. (It's pretty much an all-day outing since it's about 1 1/2-2 hours drive each way) Stocked up on the generic for Claritin, got some more MucinexD (I know...have to sign your li...

Re: 5-Minute Fire Starter

If you want to get out of trouble with your wife, send her to the Dollar Tree to pick up something (anything). I guarantee there isn't a woman alive who can come out of there with less than 2 bags full of stuff! "But honey, they were such a good deal that I couldn't pass them up." You're ...

Re: How many people starting garden from seeds they saved?

Sadly I live in literally the worst possible location for a garden. Have tried to start one twice and failed. The soil is just awful it is like 90% clay. I now the feeling...my soil is a mixture of clay and caliche., with almost NO organic material. My remedy is raised beds, and work in as much org...

Re: Milk Alternatives

Oh, one other thing....there IS a trade-off The breeds that have a higher butterfat content to their milk generally do NOT give quite as much milk. The breeds that are milking MACHINES, generally have a LOWER butterfat content. Me, I'd rather have LESS milk, but better-tasting milk.

Re: Milk Alternatives

Also, for anyone that complains of a "goaty" taste to the milk. Refrigerate immediately (we do anyway, but I know a few people that wait until the rest of the barn chores are done, before heading to the house with their milk). Also, we have Nigerian Dwarf goats, which are known to have a ...

Re: How many people starting garden from seeds they saved?

Part of my garden is started from saved seed, and some is from seed I bought...usually when I want to "experiment" with a new variety, or something I haven't tried to grow before.

Finished with the additional goat pen. Will eventually be moving "the boys" over there. Only thing now is to move their shelters.
