    I would even wager a guess while they may lose some nutritional value past expiration, they are likely safe to eat past that date and would give some calories to stave off hunger, though they make lack in terms of power packed vitamins and minerals.

    I recently bought 10 5 gallon buckets of freeze dried meals and 20 #10 cans of various kinds at an estate sale. They were produced in 2012 and had been kept in a 72 degree environment. I figure I've got 10 more years before they spoil. The 2012 end of days stuff has been turning up a bit lately.....I see those $20 Wind up flashlights at every yard sale for $1....I bet I've got 20 so for. Lol

    I bet your right. Our plan is to send them off to college with our boy when he goes. Just add hot water...plus his s'mother will sleep better if she knows he is fed. We will re buy at that point.

    There is a lot to be said for big ole dumb dogs. We keep an English mastiff on our property...curantly on number 4. We have had one for the last 20 years...in that time only one phyco tried to open the gate without permission. Thor our 150 lb mastiff took the guys entire hand in his mouth and firmly let the jack ass know he wouldn't be getting it back til I said so. This guy was WAY off his meds...babbling crazy stuff and being all round skitzo....but even he stopped dead in his tracks at that point...which gave me time to arm up and run him off. Nothing beats a if dog to keep ALL kids of predators at bay....they work for rude little shitz too.

    When purchasing ANYTHING, from an online ad, especially anything local, make sure you know as much about the seller, and the product you can before you lay down your hard earned cash. First, copy the street address of the seller, once you get there. (Verify it’s a legit address) go to the local gendarmerie (cop station), and do a records check on the address. You will pay a small fee in most locales, but, you can find out (all public record) , how many times the cops have responded to that address, and in most cases, have dealt with the seller. Second have a bill of sale, with the driver’s license of the seller and the buyer written down on the contract. You physically handle the license to ensure it is real. Write down the license number, (all licenses have them as do all Identification cards). Make sure the photos match, and make sure the addresses match as well. If not, ASK why? It’s not beingg rude, is being shrewd! You can also run in most states, the convictions of any person online, for another small fee, or even arrests, and you should. If someone has a history of burglaries, I would assume the items being sold are stolen, but that’s just my past career kicking in. Also, run the VIN of the vehicle p, (Vehicle Identification Number) from the registration, to ch3ck and make sure its not a “salvage title like a flooded pickup from Hurricane Harvey infamy. Again, another small fee to prevent be8ng ripped off, seems worth it to me. You are adults, but, you can do th3se simple steps to prevent h3artache later.

    the anti-lemon law should cover you for 3 years after your purchase just make sure you get as much information as possible on the seller so you can go back to him if there is a problem.

    your right ...NO not buy a vehicle, but custom seats if you find a truck but the seats or configuration need to be tweaked. I have bought trailer hitch bumpers side mirrors headache racks etc. from Craigs list.

    While my far-better half is an intelligent, strong, motivated and formidable woman, she has the curses of being too trusting and late to defense. At a recent outing, my old boxing skills became needed, and while she supported my violence, she was in shock during the event. She also shies away from firearms and is too trusting of our neighborhood jogging trail at night. What can i do to help her become more proactive, and more mindful of danger, without making her dismiss my advancements as paranoid? Thank you all for your guidance!

    You and me both. I was born in boxelder Texas...24 people strong...and have never lived in any other state. I'm not taking common sense and family values to their state...so they can keep their liberal transgender values to their f#$×ing selves.

    I have seen grow your own mushroom kits in grocery stores before. I bought one once. It worked on a very small scale, but it sent spoors out everywhere (I had it inside) and that that annoyed me...so I tossed it. LOL. I have an excellent book for Foraging in the Midwest. It's called Midwest Foraging by Lisa Rose. She grew up foraging. I like this book because it discusses plants in seasons and when they are used - in color - and what parts to use. It also gives basic warnings of not foraging near RR tracks (chemical seepage from the RR ties) or roads (run off).

    Really great advice! I think we will simply stick to a dealer for a large purchase like a vehicle though.

    I have a few concerns about your choice and purchase did you go to a bow shop to be fitted and have the bow tunned what is the draw poundage on your bow, your draw length. For $100 you could get a cheap "aquaitance bow" or an old bow first a compound bow is not a gun or grandpa's old recurve you do not just pick it up and shoot it if you do you could face disaster take it to an archery store, Cabela's or Bass Pro have them check the bow out Martin Bows have an iffy history. Second have them "fit you" and see if the bow is adaptable to you and has a draw weight exceptable for hunting. Third have them tune it, if it is safe and adaptable to fit you. do not dry fire it the string can explode and do not use wood arrows with it because the arrow can explode. I hunt with bows and competition shoot 3d and have since I was 9. after all that if you have any questions holler
