Re: Rabbit

I've heard the same thing with regards to offal too. It's amazing ( to me at least) people's reactions when they will happily eat pork , bacon and ham but mention a trotter and you'd think you'd suggested poison. About the only offal i don't eat is tripe as i find it tasteless but worse than that i...

Re: Rabbit

I breed them mainly for meat. This time of year we will eat rabbit once a week , but most I sell on. I have a good clientele for them ( we are in the ‘country’) and in fairness they are rather middle class customers. It can be worth fifty to a hundred quid a week at this time of year, cash, but it d...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

No work today,and too cold ( for me) to fish. So... gonna drop a birch tree that is in the way of my slash and burn campaign in my garden. :lol: That won't take long.Then I am rearranging outbuildings so we can lay our hands on stuff more easily. I seem to have gear all over the place at the moment....

Re: winter..... and batteries...

I don't know about additives in diesel now,but I can remember 2010 when truck drivers were lighting fires when their tanks froze,and the deisel waxed.Saw it first hand up and down the A47 when I was delivering.I made sure I used a petrol van( Rascal) and not a diesel that week.

Re: You don’t need fancy gear

You are welcome Arzosah. I agree that the sometimes’Guncentric’ ( I made that up!) can be a bit tiresome. On the whole though, it is one of the ‘softer’ American prepping sites.

You don’t need fancy gear

I just came across this article on a website I visit regularly. It shows what can be done with very little. This lady puts together an emergency kit in a Greek market in 13 minutes. For anyone new to prepping , the principal could be applied to what you have lying around the house... https://www.the...

Re: Internet- based heating controls

It's interesting that internet heating systems,and smart meters too,are supposed to make your home more energy efficient.That is rather a paradox when you consider the energy consumed by internet servers. https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/global-warming-data-centres-to-consume-three-times-as...

Re: Internet- based heating controls

The internet is my lifeline. I talk to pals on it, I order groceries on it, books and clothes and xmas stuff, everything really, because I live too far out/am too decrepit to trek into town for it. But I would survive without it if I had to, just with a much more limited choice. The Alexa and fancy...
