Re: Minimalist Tool Kit

I specifically mean regarding multitools. Ahh. Mostly negative experiences, though they were in the lower end of the price scale. I think even a craftsman ?6in1?. That's why I was pretty surprised on how long the Klien has lasted and functioned, though I do live in fear of losing the bit... lol. I'...

Re: Minimalist Tool Kit

Sure you do, and you stated the reason right up there at the beginning, because you've found that quality makes a huge difference in how well a tool performs its task, even a multi-tool. :wink: Oh, I agree 100% about quality, however the price point comes into play as well. It might be worth findin...

Re: Lifestyle Changes for Health

E.g., offhand, baked salmon with green beans and legumes. The baked salmon you'd buy a salmon plank (usually 4-5 good solid meals for me). <SNIP> Take it out in the morning to go to work, and at lunch microwave for 1.5-2.5 minutes (depending on microwave). I *like* fish, but I feel like I should th...

Re: Food Insecurity 2019

I'm seeing mostly the same things, but our schools are back in person. What I have noticed, that while there seems to be rolling shortages of random stuff, it mostly effects the interior isles of the store which hold your processed foods. I haven't noticed much impact on the fresh food side. Or they...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

I can give you 1, that I know about 100%. Long term friend's Mom passed from a stroke. When the death certificate came back, Cause of death listed as COVID.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

I don't trust the official mortality numbers. There have been too many cases of someone who dies and just happens to have COVID, so COVID is declared the cause of death. There was a news report several weeks ago about a 30-something guy in Colorado (I believe) who died with a BAC of .55 and the cor...

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

In City Prepping's video, he suggested that people be prepared to spend up to 11 weeks in their homes. This would be quite the stretch, even for us. I know I don't have 11 weeks of meds on hand. There is USPS, but if it's not safe for people to go out, how would it be safe for the mail? I'm also cu...

I almost wish someone would start putting out bumper-pull travel trailer 'boxes' with a gooseneck hitch. Kinda split the different: gooseneck/fifth wheel maneuverability; but closer to bumper-pull build, price, and size.

I'm not sure about Ring, but I believe Blink stops working if the internet isn't accessible. Should make sure to check that out. Ubiquiti Protect is all-local, but kinda pricey (both the "base station" and cameras) and not home-gamer friendly. (If you or the missus are sysadmins or netadmins, you'd...

Re: permaculture suggestions for a useless bit of land

Generally an easement like that can go unused by the Power Co for years. That said they also may have to dig it up and remove your plants. Blueberries as well as black berries are suitable for your area. They end to be faily self sufficient once established. However I think you would be pissed if t...

tl:dr - help me plant something nutritious that thrives on neglect. I'm in the process of buying a house, and there is a small area (400 sq feet-ish) behind my fence that it appears I own.

Home warranty is a good idea too, I'm gonna look into it. Check into the companies and reviews all over online.
