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.

    • I push the Jesus / Yeshua Savior and I push the King James version of the Bible, I am not against more modern English like the NIV to help get a handle on meaning. I "may" think the world is in or approaching end times BUT I am not a doomsday fatalist, the world ends for everyone, it's called death.  I care that people do not follow false christs or spiritual leaders, in order to avoid this read a Bible please use the King James and for some context a NIV but later I will explain my views.  Here is a WARNING !  Matthew 24:…3 While Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will all this happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” 4 Jesus answered, “See to it that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. Mark 13:…4“Tell us, when will all these things happen ? And what will be the sign that they are about to be fulfilled ?” 5 Jesus began by telling them, “See to it that no one deceives you. 6 Many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many. Luke 17:22 Then He said to the disciples, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. 23 People will tell you, ‘Look, there He is,’ or ‘Here He is.’ Do not go out or chase after them. 24 For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so will be the Son of Man in His day. Jesus knew he would be followed by counterfeits, this is another reason why I believed because who in the world would follow a poor carpenter who's end was on a cross mocked and killed for his acts of healing the sick, curing blindness, casting out demons raising the dead and, made no wealth from it. Stay away from doomsday profits NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR. Live like a decent honorable human being give what you can afford of time or money DO NOT ABANDON YOUR PARENTAL OR MARITAL DUTIES OR THOSE TO YOUR FAMILY.  Pray for others not yourself God knows what you need. act like your a follower and boy that's hard the world is not a nice place many of us lived so long in the world, we fall back into it so easily well that's going to happen your not perfect nor am I. Too many cults and false profits are around, some are just mistaken but have a want to do something positive but, is that teaching they do line up with the "WORD". Once saved always saved a Baptist belief it's true but not if you reject the saving grace of Christ you gave it away IMHO now as far as anyone able to interfere or take it from you NOT GOING TO HAPPEN as long as when you sin you ask forgiveness and do your best  not to do it again, Salvation is not a license to sin IMHO. I recently left a church because of that "grace" philosophy and the word Shikina this word is a feminine word and it was used in context with the Glory of God there is no feminine in the God head of the Father Jehovah, Yeshua   (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit, there are no female angels we do not turn into angels when we die, angels are servants of God and do his will and they are sent to help us but only at the direction of God. They are not to be worshiped they will not allow it. If your confronted by a spirit your suppose to question it, "in who's name have you come ? " People can lie spirits must all subject themselves to Jesus (Yeshua)  Christ is a title meaning anointed, If you rebuke something in the name of Jesus / Yeshua it cannot stay if it is not of God. God is a Spirit Jesus is the physical embodiment of God and in the Bible states nothing was made without HIM Jesus The holy Spirit is part of the Trinity NO one knows how or why the 3 are one act as one cannot be divided are not in confusion are all knowing all seeing and all powerful Period. If you can't wrap your mind around that your in good company no one can we just accept this if we are believers. A pastor is important but, they are just like anyone else they can and do sin some are no more believers than a stick using their position to fill their pockets and be important but we ( the faithful are supposed to be vigilant / watchful study the scriptures) to prevent our making mistakes or when we realize we have made a mistake change course repent and do as we should. People are full of beanie weenies some religions I think never read a Bible some have such weird beliefs that are NOT in the King James at all nowhere to be found. Why the King James because because it is the closest to the original from the original text under the rules of copyright a text has to contain 10% different content to be considered an original work (paraphrased) so in the recent years just what has changed, you would be surprised some would not even make a good door stop or level a crooked table IMHO.    If you have not read your Bible or asked and know what it's mission statement or belief is you may be in a trap a psychological one those are almost impossible to escape because the bars are invisible and many times it's a social club of your friends or family if a group does not follow Biblical teachings and many do 99% but it really depends on that 1% or more they ignore or refuse to follow or believe that's important --so watch how you go, it's important because all of us will die and we live forever either as a Saint or unsaved sinner those are the only choices that mean anything and the world is filling up with agnostics, skeptics, witches and false religions choose rightly or face the consequences as in all your other life decisions, there are consequences.  
    • less than an hour on cults political ones, you may see parallels to the growing socialism communist and religious cults. I was completely aghast at the commercial for he Chinese opera or Shen Yun, Americans we so snake fascinated with the acrobatics costumes and choreography they forgot why these Chinese do this, to escape tedious factory jobs that are so horrible that safety nets have to be installed on buildings to prevent workers from jumping to their death to escape grueling 16 to 20 hour shifts sleeping on the floors and eating what is given them some are not even paid it is forced slavery. This has been reported by all the main stream news most peoples cell phones are made by these companies sold in America for big money. My disgust with these damn fools that praised and gushed about the Chinese troop was they have not a friggin' glimmer of just how horrible living under Chinese rule if you do not have skills money or position or family endeavors because if you don't your meat power saving does not concern a country with over a billion people they still work by hand with no Social services for simple workers. Those that have no family are less than dogs. People rallied against many pop personalities when they found they had clothing or products made in labor camps, but because it's pretty and action packed with lots of exotic music these educated fools urinate themselves on how wonderful the sow is. This is no less brain washing than the application of torture just stupid people pay for the privilege to be mind controlled into thinking that China is a wonderful exotic place, I have been there get off the main streets and your find a whole new China censors do not like you videoing, a country that controls how many children you can have and turns a blind eye to the killing of female children as they are not as valuable is some kind of sick. North Korea has gotten a bad rap because China is just as bad we are just not allowed to see it.  this film is from the BBC hits a lot of mind control issues and just how gullible people are / can be. 55:47  
    • First let me say this is the worst idea EVER, Recidivism is caused by -- wait for it GANGS Gangs rule the prison they rule in the streets, if your a convict your forced into a gang for self defense / protection because of the racism Gangs have rules most hate gays they may pimp them out and use them but they are not equals to other convicts. When you leave prison your on parole they do not like you out without a leash, your not able to get jobs because your a criminal and with a 70% recidivism / return rate. If you failed math that's 7 out of 10, there are so many stories where do-gooders have hired ex-cons and been murdered and or robbed they have corrupted other workers started families and end up back in the joint leaving their spouse and children on the welfare roles. We have all heard where ex-cons kill their significant other rare bt it happens their own children. Hide and watch if the federal government does not make it mandatory to hire eveyone regardless / even if they are ex-cons. To what degree can small business protect themselves from being forced to hire murderers and known gang members, remember gang members who have sworn a blood in blood out pact, you leave feet first DEAD the same gangs inside are outside and they demand "rent" as a member you have to produce if you don't it's a beating if you continue to disrespect the gang (not paying rent) and make it look like the leadership is weak they kill them HORRIBLY to instill fear into the rest. Again government is about to launch a do-gooder plan that will end up being run by morons bureaucrats and we have all see it where judges take sexual favors to get lenient treatment for their crime or for their spouses crime, so this will be ripe for bribes and those that take bribes they will get blackmailed. LMAO in hsort order the gangs will be in charge of the Pardons and Paroles system and many of the bureaucrats hat can help them along the process. The numbers won't change on recidivism unless we EXECUTE gang leaders because all gang leaders have murdered or ordered murders -- you don't get to be top dog unless you kill something, usually your own kind. You cannot trust the judiciary because some judges are liberal miss using the law to social engineer from the bench, we have seen this by judges letting pedophiles off with the least sentence they can give. look at the  Kathryn Steinle shot and killed by a illegal alien who was acquitted by a sick perverted system. I am sorry to say this is one issue Trump needs to get some real insight on before he backs this bill, I'm available, call anytime.
    • Psychologists IMHO have never healed any patient, now the have medicated them or managed them but  if they were paid by the success rate they would be dead broke. In order to prove a theory are willing to injure people for life to prove their point. What Nazi's did was demented but much worse has been done in the name of science and paid for by our government or some corporation to spin off a narrative that benefits them, using these same doctors and psychologists.  It is high time Americans reject these snake oil sellers and remember that these are the same people that want to drop the age of consent to 14 or lower if they had the power to do so. I understand medicating people for illness, and we need them as specialists for that purpose, let me remind people that most of the drugs used to treat the mentally challenged are detrimental to their health it is a balancing act as to the harm the drugs do to the welfare of the patient over time.   Recent experiments on Americans around 2011 what else are we not being told ? Really sick experiments on Americans that harmed people for the rest of their lives. More information on government, science and Americans being used as lab rats-- and it's legal unless they get caught.   5 part series on human experimentation against Americans   More crap on drug advertising    
    • Stanford College did experiments paid for by the Navy so it's not just the police but anyone can be corrupted by power or a system if they allow it, but if you buck the system prepare to face life and death consequences. Here are the shocking videos Governments are not anymore responsible than individuals
