Exactly. That's also the main reason that landfills have been installing those release valves and gas monitors in their pits. There is an abundance of methane in these landfills that could be utilized for power as well.

The coal supporters outwardly feel angst about potentially loosing any profit margins, and one could correctly assume it wouldn't sit well with them at all if the country decidedly switched to natural gas or wind turbines for it's power consumption needs.

It may be flowing down from the creak waters upstream from your place. If that's the case, there's not much you can do. Is your creek pretty deep?
We have two creeks and this one is mainly our own...comes out of the hills and rough to get to the head of it, but I think you are onto something and we will take ride through there and take a peek. It is where the water comes out of the hill that we want to take the next water sample...there is also a spring they used to use many years back and we will have that one tested as well.

This well was great, but when they started mining it ruined many of the wells around here. It is sad since many were old and very neat! We climbed down ours and pumped and scouped it out a few times before we had it tested...and it was still bad. So, we must count it out, for consumption anyways.=(

Well, I'm out of here. Don't cry. I'll try to be back in the morning to give the Humpaburn report. Actually, it is morning. That Humpaburn is to lazy to give his daily report anymore. The Fartmans work is never done. I have to take up the slack for all the stragglers. Looks like I might have to start teaching history for Old Scruffy Wolf too.

More interesting info, thank you. I did not know about the release valves and gas monitors in landfills...so, we have MAJOR methane troubles in many areas. Makes me wonder more about the quakes. These quakes have been increasing rapidly for the past couple of decades.

It depends on what it's tested for. Water purification tablets are cheap, so are iodine tabs. Might want to give that a thought.

What worries is at present is a train derailment around my main natural water source. That being the Cumberland River... Once Chlorine gas hits water, it's instantly turned to liquid acid. Nothing can be done to my knowledge to treat that issue. Hence, the rain barrels. Assuming of course that the gas wouldn't reach my homestead.......

Yup! I am more certain that it is just going to all hit at once...war, economy, draught, die offs, famine, quakes...

Maybe not all in the same week, but...

Geeez, that stinks. Well I know that the test should have showed 1% or less and had 600 times the amount it should have (from both sources). We were told NOT to drink it. Honey talked to the guy and I will next time and find out exactly what they do test for.

I should get the tablets, bleach works fine too ( a cap full per gallon), but when we run out of these things we will need some other source. Unfortunately, my honey does not understand storing and saving nor conserving! I hate lessons learned the hard way.

The state of Florida has many, many landfills. They're so easy to spot because the state is flat, and when you see an odd "hill" where green grass is growing and mowed? Well, it doesn't take rocket science to figure out that you're looking at a plum full, ripe and ready to blow, landfill.

They started putting pressure valves and monitor gauges on them a few years ago. Once the pressure hits a certain level, an automatic flint of sorts lights a "wick" which burns off the methane coming up through the pipelines in the ground. This in turn reverses the chance of an explosion.

They have been researching how to put the methane to use, instead of burning it off. You can see these "wicks" burning at night at many of the older landfills. It's kind of eerie, to tell the truth... Knowing that all of that gas is down there boiling. And you have to add the fact that decomp of all our non recycled garbage also creates a prime environment for spontaneous combustion anyway....

Just something else to ponder on, in not such a good way. LOL!

Not to mention that recently there were approximately 700 plus Penguins that washed ashore somewhere within the last month or so.

I don't recall right now where it was, but that is an astounding amount of Penguins who died all at once, yet they are calling it "natural causes"?

C'mon now! That many of them dying all at once, washing ashore at the same time, and it's due to NATURAL CAUSES?? Bull manure.

You have a blessed evening. And thank you for such a nice chat. I think a lot of the missing in action posters will eventually gather again. This thread has turned around....

God bless, and sleep well! Chat tomorrow!

Well it is not quite daylight hours, but the dog needed [email protected] You spoke of similarities among many of the threaders. Except for the Biker, some of what you posted made me believe I had a twin sister somewhere. LOL Even down to our choices of residential area. Remote with woods.

In the old days, the rain barrels were the oak stave barrels one could obtain from the distilleries but there is such a market for those cut in half for flower pots that the price of a 1/2 barrel is $30 to $40.

I have found white 55 gallon plastic drums at around $8. One needs to know about prior contents. For those formerly filled with cleaners and things like ARMOR ALL, those can be used for gasoline or kerosene. For water storage, it would be best to find one previously filled with Cola syrups and such.

More @ Nope.. You spoke of drowned bodies rising in summer months versus winter.
I am not a scientist or chemist by no means, but there is a weight differential between cold water and warm. As the temperature changes on the surface, the surface waters and the bottom waters tend to trade places and that brings up decaying particles and the lakes turn to the color of our favorite drink (having some now) and fisherman tend to say that "the lake is turning over" and expert fishermen will adjust their methods accordingly.
Honey.. and sorghum molasses can be stored for sweetners. A cup of Joe with a 1/2 teaspoon of sorghum is quite good. Shelf Life is indefinite.
Power... I liked you statement that a loss might make you sweat, but not "sweat it". I have the old kerosene lamps with an ample supply of lamp oil that smells better than kerosene.
Heat.. I am making a wood burning stove with a 30 gallon metal drum inside a 50, with the space in between filled with sand to eliminate the need for fire brick. Door and flu kits may be purchased much cheaper than buying a pre-built stove.

One last post before the zzzzzzzs. You spoke of the Cumberland. One of the first Civil War battles in Kentucky was the "Battle of Mill Springs" near Fishing Creek on what is now the Cumberland Lake.

With all of Kentucky's rivers at that time, Abraham Lincoln said "I would hope that GOD is on my side, but I must have Kentuky. If I lose Kentucky, I lose the war". DOUBLE CLICK

Hi, AW! All dogs must choose around this time to need out. My boxer pup should grow out of this, right? I am so glad Abeliever sounds 'herself' again.

No, sorry... Just as old folks need to get up and go, so do old dogs. But I prefer that over going inside. My dog comes and climbs up on the side of my bed and I have become accustomed to waking up with a dog nose right in my face. now Triple Click... Good Day
