Re: Rabbit

I can't understand the aversion. Now so queer as folk as they say. There's not a huge amount of logic to it (and I say that as someone who held that position, before I turned vegetarian). Actually, the only logic is that if most people come into contact with rabbits, it's as pets - a friend's, a sc...

Re: Rabbit

Wow ... so there are very few of us on here, from the sound of it, who grew up in cities, whose families had long lost touch with any kind of home grown resilience. Oops. In my 1st year at college, I stayed in a small college residence which was run by nuns, and one day they cooked rabbit for us. No...

Re: What is this called?

I don't have a separate name for them either :( I'm going to be racking my brains now.

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

Those £s off coupons do have a habit of that don't they? :lol: :lol: I forgot the contents of that order, and I'd just done another one for later this month - I think I'll have to cancel that one altogether :lol: Next time your old friend asks to borrow something she could of stocked up/prepared fo...

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

I seem to be permanently rearranging/ tidying/ stocking up at the moment. I had a huge supermarket delivery yesterday, to take advantage of a £15 off coupon, so I've temporarily made things worse for myself :mrgreen: Disappointed recently that an old friend who still lives in London had gone off the...

Re: You don’t need fancy gear

Yep, I've just been over there now for a while, and yes, its much softer than I remember. The post you've linked to is part of that - and her bio says she's currently over here in Europe anyway, renting an airbnb by the month :)

I like that :mrgreen:

Re: You don’t need fancy gear

Thats a *really* good article. I go through phases of reading Organic Prepper, there was a lot of posting at one stage of very detailed advice about guns, which really wasn't useful here in the UK. But this is great! I'm home from my catsitting trip now, and re-thinking my Hotel Bag (bug out bag etc...

I'm big into my meths pots at the moment (I go through phases being a bit of a stove slut), I've various stands and windshields and being alcohol it doesn't freeze. For a van or a rucksack its a great alternative.
My name is Arzosah and I'm a stove slut :lol:

Re: Internet- based heating controls

Me three with the frills. Food, finances, friends ... its a lot. Because of the internet, my standard of living is much higher than it would otherwise be but as several have said, I'd survive without it. I might mourn the loss of a few cat videos though :mrgreen:

Re: Internet- based heating controls

That's interesting - maybe its less of a generational thing, more of a "stage of life" thing - if I couldn't get out the way I do, I might well find comfort in a techno gadget that answered back, and didn't need looking after, because if I couldn't get out, I'd be struggling just to look after mysel...
