Re: Keeping Busy, Isolation/lockdown projects

I have to admit I am a little jelly of the free time a lot of people are getting when there is so much to do around here. The wife is working 12 hours a day 7 days a week so she is barely keeping sane and I can't tap the kids too much as they still have on-line classes to complete. So I have all th...

Re: Stocking up on food while you can.

Under circumstances of quarantines and lockdowns, how is "banning" gardening supplies and seeds acceptable but Marijuana is widely available? Some states consider MJ "medicine" mostly based upon the mind numbing psychotropic effects. Honestly I am in favor of the druggies sitting around the house a...

Re: Stocking up on food while you can.

I would consider buying some rabbits right now. 2 does and a buck (or better yet, 3-4 does and a buck). Maybe just pasture them on the land you bought, but I"d consider gifting them to some interested family members who will make sure they multiply. Something I saw on a homesteading video, I guess ...

Most ridiculous in price.
Possibly an understatement. When does a price increase become price gouging?
When they try to charge $32 for ten rolls of toilet paper?

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

Re: COVID-19 Thread

And at what point would the public accept it? You are asking for opinion based upon conjecture. I think it is sufficient to say ...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

I don't expect you to, but what would need to occur to achieve that restriction in America? A state of emergency? Martial law? An agreement between governor's and state troopers? Martial law would likely do it, but I expect there would still be legal challenges. I'm not an attorney, nor did I stay ...

The problem is there aren't pallets of goods available. Simply easier to let customers in to buy the few rationed items that come on the shelves each morning. They are generally gone by mid day. Are you saying that because the quantity of goods coming in are not sufficient to be numbered in pallets...

Of course, Walmart is still open and I am seeing on social media friends that typically do not go to Walmart often posting pictures inside there. I feel this may be due to the social nature of most humans. If they cannot socialize in their normal places they will go wherever it is allowed. .... Can...

Just for a little perspective that may help. We pay around $400 a month for our power bill. Here in socal. And we live in an 800sqft home. The electric company turned private some years ago.

Re: Affordable Zippo leak proof case.

Well it's official as of yesterday. This thing held fluid for over 2 months. And it's still going strong. I don't think I'll use a regular Zippo case ever again. At least not for my daily use Zippo.
