  1. Yup....No question
  2. I didn't know wal-mart was carrying Augasons but I've been getting #10 cans and 5gal pails from Sams online. The dried veggies aren't bad. Soak them in some water to reconstitute them. I'd gotten some buckets of taters, sliced and shredded; and peppers and onions. Be a great add to about anything one would prepare especially making omlets from the powdered eggs. The potatoe soup is pretty darned good. I could just imagine adding rabbit or squirell to it. I did get some of the Wise TVP meats but have not tried it. I believe I'm going to stick to getting canned meat and storing it. I don't like to rotate stuff. Easier for me that way and I'd forget my arse if it wasn't stuck to the bottom of my back. MEATS:
  3. Hay! Hey! Hey!! Hold on here! Sumbeaches......
  4. Sounds good. It'd suprise you what I have in my truck tool box. Sounds like you're getting there. If you're keeping things in the back of the truck, if I may, I'd suggest making it look as though you're taking off the trash. The bed covers/shells are easy to get into. dr
  5. Hmmm, Add to that ban list of yours "Subway Trains" Snake. Seen where someone was pushed in front of one, seems 2nd or 3rd time in a month someone died from a subway train. Surely someone wouldn't push somebody in front of one. Guns kill people, people don't kill people now do they? peace, dr
  6. Ditto Rod! Welcome Sir...Look forward to your input. peace, dr
  7. Okay, splain to me how " starboard is right ": " port is left". Correct? Is a port hole a left hole? Anyway you look at it, it's more arse to Xerox. LMAO@snake Fat fingered the keyboard.
  8. LOL Snake! You have two? A left and right? Port hole? Isn't port left TJ? I wasn't Navy. I was thinking more along the lines of in the groove!
  9. Just been busier than a long tailed cat in a room full of rockin' chairs.. playin' Santa this morn. Merry Christmas all!!!!!
  10. This is where moral values meet religious belief. You have your belief. Its your choice. I have mine. My choice. I believe in heaven and hell. An afterlife. If you read John ch. 3 Jesus explains to Nicodemus that no man will enter into heaven on just works unless he accepts GOD through JESUS who died for our sin. This country is free, and you are of freewill to choose. You are not made to believe in just one religion. So if you keep some of GODS commandments, I'll say you do have some high moral values. May peace fill all of your hearts this Christmas season. dr
  11. Ooops, never mind about the two two three I just found a ton of it "in stock"...Guess people are just buying it up at local stores.
  12. Just came in from china mart. They still had some guns up but there wasn't any ammo. Two guys came in and asked if they had any .223 ammo? Nope the clerk said, sold out. I got curious and looked on line and most all suppliers are "sold out". Really?
  13. Oh dear me....Agnostic? A person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena. The single most important thing that the civilized humanbeing has ever learned to do is write. Be it by a drawing or some form of recording something. Without the ability to record anything there'd be no history, or advancement of civilization(s) or mankind for that matter. By the roadmap of Christianity, the Bible, we are taught to walk by FAITH. With no physical evidence of GOD. Only the teachings of Prophets and Jesus Christ whom "I" am not worthy. So whatever your religion is, I'd like to ask you a question if I may? If we all taught these teachings and instilled in our children the "golden rule". ( Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you ) and follow these Ten Commandments, how could there be room for the evil that exsits today? Anywhere? I fear no man, but I do fear the wrath of GOD. 1. Thou shalt not have any other gods besides me 2. Thou shalt not make for thyself any graven image 3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain 4. Remember to keep holy the sabbath day 5. Honour thy father and mother 6. Thou shalt not kill. 7. Thou shalt not commit adultery. 8. Thou shalt not steal. 9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. 10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife. If we all followed these Commandments and the teachings of the Bible how could there be room for the evil that exists? Granted, this country was built by imigrants. We are a very diverse scociety. The Mother of Exiles asked for us all! If you want to live free, come! She offered, freedom of speech, religion, taxation without representation, ect. The freedom to make a choice. Whatever the choice you make, YOU make it. You being educated should know the story behind the Revolution and why/what made these Freedoms possible. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
  14. Oh I agree with all of what you said Capt. 100% The general upbringing of childern has suffered over the years. Punishment of children growing up has gone by the wayside. You can't spank a child around here with out having social services on you. [i've no need of doing that anymore and haven't for years.] To instill some moral fiber back into the population begins with the way we're raised. The scocial values/morals aren't there anymore. The old saying, "spare the rod, spoil the child" has a meaning. To do wrong with no ramifications? Then we get older and then what? That old saying came from the book of Proverbs: Proverbs 23:13, 14 - Do not withhold correction from a child, For if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. You shall beat him with a rod, And deliver his soul from hell. Proverbs 22:15 - Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him. Proverbs 29:15 - The rod and rebuke give wisdom, But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother My mom and dad loved me enough to take a belt, a switch, or their hand to my butt when I didn't do what I was told. It's not much of a guidance system when you're put in time out, grounded or have a cell phone removed from you. I'd get my arse blistered for doing something I was told not to do. IE; Son! Put down my pocket knife, you'll have one someday. Of course next thing I'd have it open and get my butt fanned good. Next time he told me to put it down, I put it down! I'd get my butt wore out and go off crying saying, dads mad at me. I'd get this talk: I didn't spank you because I'm mad, I spanked you because I LOVE YOU and you didn't do what I asked you to do "twice". It's a learning process. From the womb to the tomb. By no means am I perfect, no one is. I'm an ornery old curmudgeon but I stand on my Christian belief and teaching of the Bible. This way of life is being disolved slowly in the U.S. The system has removed GOD from prayer in schools, you can't say the Pledge of Allegience because of the phrase for "one nation under GOD". I remember when I was in school we even began the day with the Lords Prayer in grade school, that was a long, long time ago. That doesn't happen because it's offensive to the children and their parents, gimme a break..If it's offensive to mention GOD and Jesus Christ, then I'm just offensive! Where's "In GOD we trust"? This nation was founded on GOD, Freedom, and Equality. The system has the FREEDOM to do as they wish? Open free trade so our jobs go overseas so there's EQUALITY worldwide? No mention of GOD in schools. Now we reap what has been sewn. The more GOD is being removed from our daily lives/life, there's only room left for EVILS presence....... This also is my, not so humble opinion. peace, dr
  15. I'd almost believe that's where the knives and swords originated at least firecrackers. lol Well, accross the top it said stabbings, cleaver, [i assume meat cleaver] and hammers. They believe all these disturbing events are being caused by rapid social change. hmmm mental illness?
