Hey, I just remembered another thing:
FEMA was also trying to contract for "UNDERWATER RECOVERY" BODY BAGS. I'd forgotten that until just now.
Where, oh where, are those stories about all of this that we all posted on here so long ago now.... I wonder how far back they are and if I could ever find them now. I think I'll YouTube it and see if I can find these things again for some of the newbies here..

I agree, they will try to take from their neighbors when they get hit unprepared. Guess that is why most Americans have at least one if not many guns in the home. I agree with you on wishing sometimes He would return for us before it all does hit the fan. I know He has the plan though. What will be will be.
Yes, critters go too!:)
#87043 Mar 5, 2013
Actually they are all on the FEMA website. You can read the contracts etc...I would guess the info posted here was 6 months into the thread. I am just guessing and I posted a bunch of it. You can type it in youtube and produce most of it gathered together in one place. I remember all of it. There was even a FEMA camp/supplies or something around the Bluegrass Depot wasn't there. I can barely remember all of it. I might have some it in the SHTF file. lol

AB, I know it was a long time ago, back when we all were even putting our prepping lists on here and our supply items. I learned of a couple of new items that I decided that I wanted and additionally did add, but for the most part I was pretty much good to go already.
I'm still up to it, rotating and restocking those dried foods as I can. Critter food has been my first priority here of late for some reason. I make sure they each have at minimum three 20 pound bags of food each set back. That includes the cat food, but the bags I hoard aren't as large for him as they are for the dogs. You just have to keep it rotated, is all.
Matter of fact, I need to check the expiration dates on my water purification tabs. I think they're getting close to done..
I recently learned that some of these water purification tablets aren't healthy for your critters and could actually kill them, so beware people.. I have an article somewhere in my files on it and if I can find it I'll post...

flashlight close by, Battery lantern by the door, kerosene lamp filled and has a new wick, wood burner is cranking and plenty of split oak on the brick work entrance area. Kroger had milk and bread.
If the CREATOR sees fit for me to not blow away (as HE has done before in 2 hurricanes and 1 tornado), I will be fine so I about as well go rest my eyeballs. Good Night folks, PEACE to all and be safe.

The first therapy dog was a little terrier named Smoky. She served during WW II. She weighed a mere 4 lbs. Wikipedia. I read the article about her heroism. Just sweet:)

Snowing like crazy, temps falling, starting to accumulate on the driveway, sidewalk and road.
Hope everyone is warm and cozy and in dreamland.:)

18 images of sinkholes that left deep impressions around the globe
When late Florida resident Jeffrey Bush was swallowed deep into the maw of a sinkhole that opened up beneath his bedroom recently, it brought to light the spontaneous horror that Mother Nature is capable of. The holes, caused by chemically dissolving rock, can range in size from roughly 3 feet to a monstrous 2,000 feet, and can form quite suddenly, as exemplified by the tragedy in Florida. Check out these 18 images from around the planet sinkholes arent particular thatll make you think twice about where you step.
Couldn't find an update on the one in Louisiana.

For Hempburn, mark your calendar and get out the telescope:
Comet Pan-STARRS to dazzle the world this weekend
If you've been hoping for a "Night of the Comet" (Netflix it!) moment, our best chance might be coming tonight, when the impressively named comet C/2011 L4 (PANSTARRS) makes its closest approach to Earth. While we don't necessarily expect the comet to coat the planet in red dust and turn everyone except a lucky few into comet-induced zombies, Comet Pan-STARRS named for the Hawaii observatory that discovered it in 2011 will offer a pretty spectacular viewing opportunity, best appreciated at its perihelion (its closest approach to the sun) on Sunday.[Source]

For Ancient Wolf, I bet you could whip these up in no time. Sounds good and the picture looked yummy.
3 cans Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (10 per can)
56 pepperoni slices
block of Colby cheese
1 beaten egg
1 jar pizza sauce
Cut the block of cheese into 28 squares. Flatten a biscuit out and stack pepperoni and cheese on top. Gather up the edges of the biscuit. Line up the rolls in a greased 9x13 in. pan. Brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle with parmesan, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Bake at 425°F for 18-20 minutes.
**Use the pizza sauce for dipping
I think I would skip the pizza sauce and use garlic butter. Or use both and have two dips. I think I will try them. I usually always have all those ingredients.

Lala, I did find one. It was from last week. I think the last update prior to that was Feb 23rd. Check out the youtube flyover too. Seems like somebody would listen to the concerns of those people displaced from their homes. It is all pretty scary looking to me. The Earth just open up and swallow whatever is there when it does.

Toxic Sinkhole Threatens Southeastern Louisiana
A giant sinkhole that sprouted up overnight last summer in Assumption Parish, LA is swallowing trees and belching toxic fumes as it expands across the otherwise sleepy swamp waters of southeastern Louisiana.
The sinkhole, which was reportedly caused by a release of natural gas, has been a debacle for residents. The most recent flyover footage of the sinkhole is available here.
Robert Mann, a professor of communications at Louisiana State University, published a local residents impassioned plea to Louisianas Governor, Bobby Jindal, to tackle the problem:
WHERE ARE YOU BOBBY JINDAL?????
Need I remind you there is a sinkhole in Bayou Corne/Grand Bayou, which was declared a State of Emergency by your office on August 3rd, where 150 households were forced to evacuate from the area and are living in campers, hotels, rent houses, etc. There are mini earthquakes, methane, benzene and hydrogen sulfide being released into the community. This community has been through hell and back and are still living a nightmare. In my opinion and many others you have completely turned your back on this community, and you have done absolutely nothing helpful to this community. You havent even had the decency to come visit the site, do a flyover and meet with residents to show
your support and pledge accountability by all parties, Texas Brine and your agencies alike. Your inaction is very upsetting to many people. It is unacceptable and cannot and will not be tolerated.
We all understand your aspiration to be president, but what you need to remember is that in the meantime you have a state to run and that is your responsibility, and you have people depending on your leadership. Mr. Jindal, I have asked twice on the news, myself and many others have sent countless emails and letters to your office and to no avail. Seems you are too busy. You simply cannot continue to ignore this disaster and turn your back on a community that is pleading for your help and leadership and you must get personally involved. We await your response, Sir.
As do I ...

Goodnight bird threaders, I am off to watch the snow fall out my window in my comfy bed with my favorite downy fresh comforter. I hope everyone is safe and like me don't have to get up and get out in the crap if it is as they say. You know the kids are hoping it at least closes schools. lol
Goodbye Winter, I will enjoy you tonight, but look forward to SPRINGing forward this weekend. Love it when the time changes. Can't wait for the green green and flowers, flowers, flowers.
Have a good night/morning! Blessings to all!

Too many ingredients to keep in stock. Easier to take a frozen Tombstone 4 meat cheap pizza, add some frozen pepperoni slices, some more mozzarella cheese, chopped onions, and a small can of sliced black olives. I can keep those on hand all the time. I made the mistake once of not looking at the olive can and got chopped instead of sliced.... that looked like Grandpa's chew tobacco and ruined my appetite. LOL

I am up to let the dog out, not look at the lights on the modem constantly to see if it was going to connect, and to not pick up the telephone every 30 seconds to listen for that lovely dial tone. LOL Just hope this is not a tease, but finally a real fix.
#87057 Mar 5, 2013
Since the wind has died down, and the dog is back, and the phone and internet have perked up; I will go back to bed. Good Morning to all.

i thought i was having that problem too.....but it ended up being a cookie crumb stuck under the space bar....... dont know how it got there.
about the snakes...... i would think (but i can ask my boss if he may know of anything else that you could put down that works) that if there is a snake problem its because there is a good food source.... maybe a dirty neighbor that attracts mice? or maybe research what ever kind of flowers and plants you have and see if they could be attracting them..... guess it depends on what kind of snake too.
my remedy for all things pest-like is my big monster in and out cat...gizmo :) he eats and kills everything...snakes included. sometimes he takes a liking to a particular critter, and they get to live, but for the most part, he keeps everything away. we no longer have racoons or snakes thanks to him (or maybe they have decided to hide better) but he doesn't mind the squirrels, just likes to watch them run up and down.... and according to my neighbor and hubby, he doesn't kill the bunnies either, just jumps them and lets them go....
#87059 Mar 6, 2013
hahaha!..... i wonder how many have and will migrate to those states also......
someone posted a pic on my wall the other day that was a valentines day card that said "roses are red... violets are blue... we have to break up cause im moving to colorado."

I picked up a hunting guide this year to find out certain hunting seasons... It's legal to hunt Dove year round without a hunting license.. And if you have a hunting license you can hunt sparrow and starling year round. Thought that was interesting.
#87061 Mar 6, 2013
yup and according to the robertsons, if your dog is defective and runs off with your dove....you should get a poodle.
