Re: Brexit in October?

Very sorry to hear about your wife needing that treatment, jansman :( I hope all goes well.

As for what this country has done to itself ... aiee. I keep thinking about how it would seem to be self harm, if the UK was an individual.

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

Good Costco trip, Lil - nice to get it done now (especially seeing the report on Yahoo I just posted to the Brexit thread on here). And I'm glad your recliner is so comfy. Hurray for knitting! As a teenager, I knitted a very complicated cardigan for my silver Duke of Edinburgh Award :mrgreen: I have...

Re: Brexit in October?

An interesting article on individual stockpiling on Yahoo News today, which mentioned the facebook group. I love the woman who's got 3 months supply for herself, but over a year for her dog: “I’ve got more dog food than human food,” said Helena Adams, who has more than a year of dog food supplies an...

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

Thanks Deeps. And boxing clever is the way to go, for sure. Your mum's keeping on keeping on, that's great! One of the ways I "keep on" is having several little internet research projects going on. At the moment, one of them is foraging in relation to lime trees (the old "linden" tree, not the citru...

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

Thanks Deeps - it's horrible, and also quite boring - the 50 yard trip to get the blackberries has exhausted me but I have to keep *some* level of activity or else I can't sleep at all. Don't know about Lil, but for me, it's a bit of a tightrope. Worst comes to worst, I remember the strapline at Zer...

Re: Food after oil

That's a very good article, very wide ranging. I particularly like the historical comparison to Jethro Tull etc.

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

Absolutely Arzosah, done the same meself. Had a couple of days up in Edinburgh at the start of the Fringe and been stuck in the recliner ever since. It's so unfair and really pulls you down. My main prob is powdered milk, we go through a lot of milk and that's the one thing we always ran out of fir...

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

Argh, Lil! You could always lie to ratty grumpy husband as well as the doctor :oops: That's an amazing list of "don't worry it'll be all right" :( isn't it. I'm stocking up - big supermarket delivery last week, a smaller one this week, and also an online purchase from Healthy Supplies. Some of the s...

Re: Handy new BOV? (Fits in a rucksack!)

Or load it onto your monowalker if you don't have a motorized vehicle. Not forgetting to plan a route that doesn't have stiles I would think. That definitely makes me think of the Daleks, before they got those little boosters that meant they floated :lol: The monowalker could deffo be a posh versio...
