As for the water shortage mentioned in some prior posts, I don't worry much about that. I have a creek in front of my homestead and it is only about a one mile trek to the river and I know how to live without running water, since I did for the first several years of my life anyways. Rain water can be caught and pumped into the cistern that is under the front part of the homestead. Right now it is closed off, but is reuseable. The down spouts have a trip valve where the initial rain is dumped onto the ground to clean the roof, then opened to feed the cistern that I can access from inside the house. Lack of electric and water would be inconvenient, but not a disaster.

If the toilet don't work I can easily re-build that same little building that once sat up the hill and had a crescent-moon shaped hole in the door and put a thunder mug under my bed. LOL Concern for potential disasters and "prepping" is one reason I moved here to my folk's old country place almost 3 years ago. I can survive better here than anywhere else and if I don't, then I have the CREATOR to take care of the rest. I don't get all that concerned about conspiracy theories since I have done about all I can already and the rest I will leave to GOD. My immediate family can also leave town life and come here, if needed.

Hello bird threaders, where is everyone? Haven't seen Hempburn in a few days. I am hoping and praying things are still going well for Blueminer. I know Ancient Wolf is enjoying his new wood stove and making his list for the Dollar General. Here just a short month ago Una would be helping you with that list. haha
lala, AW, you didn't try that home remedy of WD40? You never know. That list was interesting I posted. Can't wait to try a few of them myself that I have never heard of.
Nope, Misty-Eyed, Blueminer, Hempburn, and the rest, I hope you have a peaceful night and don't get blown away. Tornados in Texas.
Morning AB,, I'm still hanging around, just not to say, chillin out and chasing sleep. It is still very windy here but not storming or tornados that I know of. Not a big believer in the wd40 thing, worked with it daily for years and I still got arther in the finger joints, epic fail for me, but if it works for some people go for it. Ok, it's almost 5 here and my coffee aint growing legs and coming to me..

Good morning,everyone. The wind was whipping up a short while ago. It is getting colder outside, but birds are still singing in the trees. Stein went out to his tree, but made it back in record time. Hopefully, I'll pop in more frequently today, and check out what everyone is talking about. AW is right; he's in the country and has a water resource available to him, if need be. So do I, but I still worry about other folks from more populated areas, especially the children. We have overpopulated this planet, and there is a finite supply of earth's natural resources. Already we see famine in third world countries. And unfortunately, when people use up "theirs" they come to get "ours."

Right now, I hear our resident hoot owl. He has a "friend" a short distance away. They are hooting back and forth to each other. It is amazing to see the number and variety of birds out here. I really enjoy them. I'll have to get suet to hang in the trees. That helps them to keep body heat for when the temperature plummets.

Well, bye for now . Will check in a bit later. Lala

Sorry to take so long getting back to you AB. I heard a ruckus outside and went to check on it. I had a possum in my chicken coop. Thank God I'd not gone to bed yet, I'd not have heard anything and would no doubt have lost a hen or two by morning.
But all of my featherheads are okay, thank you Jesus. I've got the possum trapped now and will deal with it appropriately tomorrow. Thankfully, I didn't have to kill it. It will be living down by the Cumberland River tomorrow, well away from here. I hate to think it, but I know that I'm not going to keep getting this lucky getting rid of little varmints the way I have been for much longer. It's a numbers game of nature against human, but I have to protect my chickens first and foremost. I see now where it got in and I'll reinforce that part of the floor tomorrow when I get back from transplanting this fat, sharp toothed trespasser...
As for the rock 'design' I saw, no, it's not part of the sink. It's at least 500 feet further east of it. Such an odd thing it is to see from the satellite view. When I saw it, I zoomed in for a better look, sat back in my chair, looked again, then sat back for a few more minutes. It took a while for what I was seeing to sink in.. I couldn't believe it. Very bizarre thing and it HAS to be large boulders because there's no other explanation for the color and "broken" shape of the spiral/circle. I can hardly wait to see it up close. I'll take a tape measure with me to I can gauge how wide it is, etc.
I'm going to run for now. I need to shower again and put on fresh P.Jammies. I feel like I have chicken dander all over me. I'm itchy from the coop and not ashamed to admit that I got a little sweaty coming face to face with that critter growling and snarling at me. It's VERY lucky that I didn't shoot it..
(What an adrenaline rush)....
Everyone have a blessed evening. Goodnight!
Hubby used to have the bad habit of not securing the lid on our horses' feed bucket. One night, I went in the barn to get feed, stuck my hand in the bucket, and felt a scruffy coat. I immediately jumped and pulled my hand out quickly. Lucky I wasn't bitten by the possum sitting in the grain, having a good time, eating to his heart's content. Poor possum was just as startled as I was. From then on, I always look before I dip the can into the feed bucket. Those critters hiss when they feel threatened.

I have been following this for some time, as you may know, from popping in from time to time. Both the Patriot Act and the NDAA have markedly reduced our freedoms, to the point that I believe that we are already under a soft form of martial law. The government knows something that we don't know. We will soon find out.

I agree with you on this. Americans have been losing their rights willingly for years. For example with growing hemp or marijuana. I have no problems with any kind of plant even poppy for that matter to be grown. But, no, our government and the laws enacted from our leaders say no. You will be fined and/ jailed. Yet, our government does not fall under those same laws. It can tax and distribute Mary Jane as she is or in the form of marinol.How does one explain that to someone who's been incarcerated ? or has been forced to purchase with insurance what could have been raised by their own hands? The government has gone from caring about the rights of the citizens to earnings from taxpayers/ businesses. It's too big for its britches.

the FEMA camps will be for any gun owners , after the mandated 'turn in' date

Democrats have proposed a bill that would require all gun owners to undergo random inspections of their home by a sheriff.

It would allow the sheriff to inspect whether gun owners had taken adequate steps to "safely and securely store the weapon."

bill, SB 5737, would prohibit the sale of weapons with detachable magazines

I agree with what you say, but not much can be done about it, because most people are either unaware or apathetic. Right now we have a facade of government. There is really no distinction between political parties, and even if an honest person runs for office, wins, there are so many pressures from the military/industrial complex, that the honest individual eventually caves. Big corporations and special interest groups are very powerful and actually run the government by attaching legislation that is beneficial to them to really good legislation, and thereby slide by under the radar. The really powerful and moneyed individuals will always get what they want, at the detriment of the "little people." You can bet these folks know what is really going on and have prepared for their safety, but the general public remains in the dark. Remember the old adage, "Money talks." Right now, for example, there is a huge problem in Louisiana, with the expanding sinkhole. The perpetrators of that fiasco is Texas Brine Company. They have not been penalized for causing this environmental disaster. In fact, it is only reported locally, so most people don't even know that there is a problem. If/when that sinkhole blows, it will almost certainly trigger the New Madrid, and it's "Good-night, Irene." The same could be said about BP Oil. Nothing much has happened to them, and now that the news about the spill has died down, few people know that oil is still spilling in the Gulf of Mexico. I just throw my hands up in frustration. Social media is our last chance. Things might change if more people speak up. It is not easy for them to hide then.

It has been a very quiet day today. Hope it's not the quiet before the storm. Come on, AW, you can usually spark a good conversation. I just cast my line out using a little controversy for bait, and see what I can reel in. Abeliever, you usually have something cogent to say. What's on tap for your research? We don't have Una to spice up the conversation anymore. I have to take a shower. That's where I do my best thinking. LOL. I will try to stop in later to see what has transpired on the bird thread.

Marijuana tourism is on the way to Colorado, adults over 21 can use the drug, not just Colorado residents. If lawmakers agree with the recommendation, tourists would be free to buy and smoke marijuana.
"Marijuana purchased in Colorado must stay in Colorado,"

Task force members were less successful agreeing to recommendations on marijuana growing and public use. Colorado's marijuana law allows home growing but requires plants to be in a locked, secure location out of public view. The task force couldn't agree whether a "locked" and "secure" location would mean a backyard surrounded by a fence, or whether an enclosure such as a shed or greenhouse should be mandatory.

One of the task force's most vocal marijuana critics, Greenwood Village Police Chief John Jackson, worried that backyard pot gardens would need more than a chain-link fence to keep kids out.

With officers laid-off and furloughed, simply calling 9-1-1 and waiting is no longer your best option.
You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back; but are you prepared?”

the Sheriff spoke of his opinions on the gun control proposals that are being pushed via presidential executive orders.

“First of all, to me that would be an act of tyranny.
So the people in Milwaukee County do not have to worry about me enforcing some sort of order that goes out and collects everybody’s handgun, or rifles, or any kind of firearm and makes them turn them in.” Clarke said.

I believe that if somebody tried to enforce something of that magnitude, you would see the second coming of an American Revolution, the likes of which would make the first revolution pale by comparison.” the Sheriff urged.

there is a struggle going on right now at the highest levels of government not only in this country but globally as well. I believe this because a lot of things we thought were going to happen like the start of WWIII in the Middle East and global financial collapse did not happen. I think this is because global mass awareness has reached the critical point and the forces of good have been able to fend off the forces of evil, at least for now, but the struggle continues and the outcome is still uncertain. The recent resignation of the Pope to me is also an indication that there is something big going on behind the scenes and I had read his resignation was imminent and it was predicted almost a year ago. There are numerous conspiracy theories surrounding his resignation which have been going on for some time now. In fact, it has been prophesized that the next pope will be the last pope for the Roman Catholic Church and will fulfil the end time prophecies by ushering in the anti-Christ.
