I recently added instant potatoes and milk to the larder. The potatoes are edible as a plain side dish would be better in something or with gravy as they are rather bland. The milk was bland also, but I added (a little too much) vanilla and 1-2 table spoons of surgar per quart which helped a lot. It also helped that I set it in the fridge for awhile to get cold. I didn't have a probelm drinking it straight, but then again I prefer soymilk to cow's milk in a glass. However, soymilk in my coffee that's just plain wrong.

I try to watch the sodium content on the canned stuff I buy, so I hadn't gotten into the Dinty Moore beef stew to a few weeks ago. I was surprized that I liked it. It didn't taste too salty to me even though it boasts a whopping 600 mg per can. I have at times had to live off my larder some of my meals weren't real thrilling, but I was never hungry. The wallyworld near me has a few varities of Mountain house meals they are next of my list to try.

 

As always buy what you eat and eat what you buy.

I replaced the wood furniture on my AK-47 with more robust and lighter plastic furniture. My AK-47 is my go-to MBR for my bug out kit. Next step, an appropriate sling and flashlight for it.

Just curious .... did the lighter weight plastic furniture alter the recoil or handling on the AK? Seems like there might be more felt recoil but I'm also curious about the weapon balance. Thanks.

Before one of my adult children "appropriated" my AK, I had replaced all the furniture with

"plastic/polymer" furniture, and did not notice an increase in recoil or a decrease in accuracy. Balance seemed a bit BETTER for me.

One day I would love to own an AK-47 or SA vz.58 (Czech version similar to AK).

1. Put away another 25 lbs. each of pinto beans and rice - there was a sale at Krogers.

2. Put away 10 cans of mixed fruit.

3. Put away 5 cans of spam – wife won’t touch it now but I’m betting she'll scarf it down if faced with starvation.

4. Put away 5 pounds of dry pasta - another Krogers sale.

5. Continued conversion of one of my horse run-ins to a chicken coop. Plan to move 4 week old chicks from brooder box I built into new coop in a week.

6. Planned out the garden for planting - but still have to wait that final frost.

In Canada were not allowed AK-47's , But CZ 58's & CZ 858's we can own. I own afew CZ 858's & they rock, for what they are. One thing is that not a single part is compatable to the AK rifle, but just looks like one. LOL.

P210SIG, we had issued CZ 58's back when I was in army, we haven't do much of training with them, but even with little bit of that, those 58's were solid, simple and dependable with a lot of ammo available. That would be my primary weapon to choose after TEOTWAWKI. Nowadays 58's are being replaced with new type of weapons CZ 805 BREN A1, A2, a lot more modern type of weapons......

Reorganized the pantry, and bought 20 more cans of veggies and beans in less then 6 weeks we now have 100+ cans stockpiled. Thinking about getting a foodsaver. I also want to learn canning, anyone know of any places in Florida that teach this skill? Plus read a few chapters in the SAS survival book.

Bought various knifes and devices for popping windows and cutting seat belts. Wanted to test and view several for resale. I like the keychain type because if you ever run into a lake that one would be easiest to reach. As far as knives, there are so many good ones that depend on the application.

    • You may be more right than you think there are many that are calling for Christs return and even prophesiers of dates I warn all that read this if a man makes a  prophetic statement and it fails to come to pass "THEY ARE NO PROPHET AND NO PART OF GOD. Deuteronomy 18:21-22 20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death."
      21And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
      22When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
        The Return of the Son of Man (Mark 13:24-27; Luke 21:25-28) 26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. If there is any doubt on when the Rapture is the above verses should nail it down for those that question. No one knows when Jesus will return PERIOD ! Matthew 24:36-41 36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Saturday is the sabbath The seventh day, Saturday, is the only day ever designated by the term Sabbath in the entire Bible. Not only was Jesus a perfect example in observing the weekly seventh-day Sabbath, but all His disciples followed the same pattern after Jesus had gone back to heaven. Exodus 20:8  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. If your not sure why you should keep the original sabbath ----- Matthew 5:16-18 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 17Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. 18For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.… If Jesus Christ obeyed the law and the apostles then is it not expected of us to follow Jesus example ? or follow Rome who changed it to Sunday ?  I am as guilty s most in not following Saturday and I have decide to start because I have "LEARNED" I was wrong. It is crazy town and it will get worse as we come closer to the "DAY" --TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK  ALL THE THINGS WE ARE WATCHING ARE THE COUNTDOWN TO DESTRUCTION ! Everything spoken of in the Bible is ratcheting up but it is going to become law once that has happened we the people in absentia have agreed to it and we all need to be ready IMHO.
    • I noticed that NOW people have considered concentrations in excess of 50 PPM. this is way above any previous concentrations if this were for a few day prophylactic for an oncoming cold irritation or a wound turning reddish OK but not for daily use as a supplement as anyone who takes medication realizes there are different dosages for use as to severity in fact if your hospitalized IV intense therapy more than home use pill form. I am just going to use this on my animals as a few recent problem have not been solved with normal medications although minor I want alternatives and if they work all the better if not --onward through the fog    
    • The end is near, with a generation of snowflakes. The entitlement of idiots that do nothing but whine.    
    • i tried collodial silver once it didn't really do much for the infection i had(may be a dosage issue). you can buy it at a health food store premixed with water so you don't have to worry about turning blue.
    • Ionic & colloidal silver Have been wanting to do this in some quantity in 15 to 20 parts per million or PPM. Wading through all the hype it appears to have benefits against viruses and infections this can be verified by the use of silver preparations used on burn victims. I got a couple of different meters so I can do a comparison and a few ideas to see that takes it to the next level , there is some differing opinions as to using additives other than silver purified water and electricity and a way to test to insure PPM levels I see where the OCD crowd has gone over the edge to where they may as well just swallow a silver bullion piece. what ever happened to less is more, this is why the government has to regulate everything because people over do it is the addictive nature extremism Frankenstein unleashed. I say this because if anyone should attempt the same project remember even though it is only a few but people have turned blue or gray from ingesting too much or too large particles or at least this is the assumption it also happened back in the day when rich people eat drank from silver plates silver wear goblets and even used silver medallions to dunk in their water to purify it and seeing how only wealthy people could afford so much silver and food the blue cast to the skin made people call them blue bloods or so that is my understanding of the story but recently people have turned blue I am just as sure it was from over dose as there is not a clear dosage and many think it is because if silver were tested it first would cost at minimum a billion dollars many years and if it were found to be the wonder many think it is that would take a big bite out of the pharmaceutical industry  as there would be no way to regulate it. I am interested in another arrow in my quiver of treatments as this can be used in the eyes ears nose throat mouth wash and spray on for cuts abrasions and I know of no animals or person that is allergic to silver it may change color on acidic skin but their arm has not rotted off. I will post as I test and prepare this solution and give as much information as I can I am not a lab tech so do not expect ambient air pressure phase of the moon or lay line intersection.
