LOL! I didn't even get THAT call, hehe. Not the I'm surprised. But it's okay. As long as I can stand on my own two feet, I'll be fine no matter what comes. All of us in this bird thread would be, I venture to say. We're good that way.
I believe we all know by now that "it's" coming... We're just not sure exactly what "it's" going to be, or when "it" will come. But I can tell that we're all going to be as fine as we can be during that time. We've shared survival tips, told each other the stories of the old days and how our elders got by day to day, etc. I hope that somewhere along the way, someone else has picked up a few things to help themselves when "it" happens.
I think if anyone is able to make "it", we will. Too bad that our thread probably won't be accessible once S really does HTF...
I agree. With this thread even those who have called us "nuts" in a tree will go hmmmmmmmm what did those bird nuts say about survival kits? Where were those earthquakes suppose to be? Which direction do I go to save my family? Among other things. I think the Madrid Fault blowing is going to be our SHTF, with the FEMA National Earthquake Drill May 2011, FEMA Camps, FEMA body bags, FEMA food rations ordered etc...that was posted earlier on makes me believe earthquake or EMP attack. Pure panic either way. Guess it really is up to our Maker. I keep the faith despite all the hate and turmoil in HIS world.

That rain and wind is just what we had a couple hours ago and then it changed to the white stuff. Big flakes, it is all over the car and grass, but melting when it hits the sidewalk, driveway or road. At least for now.
OJG, I also have Window 7 home premium. My McAfee total protection is about to expire. Anything better out there?
Nope, when I addressed everyone with that long post instead of replying to everyone, I was putting the numbers in the box and it just sort of refreshed and it was gone like when we use to hit reply to comments that topix was zapping and as you were posting I guess topix was zapping and took all replies with it. That is exactly how it went. Weird.
Hope everyone has a great evening.
Yes, AB ESET or NOD32 is excellent security wear. I caught a virus on Bing's front page with McaFee. It's a German company if I recall correctly that will be able to put you on their grid. You will have to pay about $60 per year. I highly recommend this company. Just research them though. It might not be to your liking;)

I tend to agree. Remember the links that we found that had honest to goodness CONTRACTS for bids? FEMA was wanting cotton sheets, they HAD to be cotton, bottled water, etc? WalMart actually won a few of those governmental contracted bids, particularly for the bottled water, if I remember correctly.

I think if a natural disaster strikes and I survive the initial onslaught, it's going to be my fellow human beings that I'll be in more danger from than anything else nature could throw at me.

Isn't that a sobering thought? Having to fear your own fellow human beings in order to survive?? They'll try to rob and pillage anything they can, those who aren't prepared will..

I sometimes just want God to hurry up and come back for us all. Really, I do. I hope my critters can go too. I certainly fear that I'd hesitate to jump on that proverbial cloud headed toward the heavens if they can't go with me....

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!:)

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:)

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 aren’t particular — that’ll 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.

PIZZA BALLS

Ingredients:
3 cans Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (10 per can)
56 pepperoni slices
block of Colby cheese
1 beaten egg
Parmesan
Italian seasoning
Garlic powder
1 jar pizza sauce

Preparation
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 resident’s impassioned plea to Louisiana’s 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 haven’t 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.

I have not seen a praying mantis in avery long time. They are one of my favorite bugs. I think mosquitos could survive a nuclear war! Bats are pollinators too. I worry that soon we will have a major pollination crisis. Bee keepers that loan out their bees to farmers and orchards claimed to have lost 30% more bees last seasson than in 2011. This is causing a bee shortage and they do not have enough bees for this years pollnation needs.
Grrr!!! I must type VERY VERY slowly to post on Topix. It will miss a number of letters and spaces in every sentence.=(
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....
