Re: Stocking up.

Very powerful to have a real life example from a known and trusted person, jansman, thanks for that. And relating it to our own storage issues is a stroke of genius :shock: never thought of it that way!

Hope you don't have to work too late tonight.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 5.

... as I'm ferrying things out to the recycling bin, I've twice seen people I've known, who've stopped to chat. This lark of getting-to-know-local-people is obviously working[/b] :shock: it's quite disconcerting :mrgreen: A much underrated prep I think, 'networking', its a lot harder to tell a frie...

Re: Stocking up.

Oh, bleach: I know there's a version of bleach I can buy that's fit for long term storage, but I only researched it halfway, and got lost in other things, so now I'm back to square one. Calcium Hypochlorite, AKA Pool Shock. You mix a very small amount with water to make a concentrated chlorine blea...

Re: Stocking up.

Who can remember the 70s, where bread and bog rolls suddenly disappeared off the shelves? I can remember the 70s very well. I studied for my O levels by the light of a Tilley lamp, and when I started to buy my own groceries when I lived in a rented house as a student, I can still remember the horro...

.....buying a purple pitcher plant, just in case small pox makes a return! :) You got me interested!

Re: How are you preparing for Brexit?

I agree with you both. I don't often watch the debates (I prefer to read it, its so aggravating otherwise) but this was all a bit serious. I'm sure nobody's going to starve (pretty sure!) but a lot of people might be put to a *lot* of inconvenience. Not me, and I'll pull as many of my family as I ca...
