Re: Small containers for burying

We buy baking soda in bulk, and it comes in buckets with very well fitting lids, which we then keep to store other things in. They seem to be pretty air & water tight, and you could deploy an inner lining as well as gaffa tape around the edge to double up on that. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

A calor-gas heater might be the way to go. From a quick search: "A modern full-sized Calor gas heater rated at 4.2 Kilowatts will last for 50 hours on one 15Kg gas bottle, turn it down to 2 Kilowatts (the heat output of most portable electric fires) and it will last for 105 hours." A 15kg butane bo...

Re: Bursitis of the knee

I've had bursitis in the hip three times and each time I had a steroid injection. The first time it made no difference and the problem cleared up in a few weeks, the second time it hurt like hell over the weekend but was gone by monday and the third time there was no pain from the injection and it ...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

A good deal has happened since this thread started waaaayyyy back in March. Gold, Silver and Crypto prices have risen substantially due to their perceived safe haven appeal. Bond yields have gone down and the dollar is quickly following suit. The FED [and most other CB's] are throwing trillions int...

Re: Bursitis of the knee

I've had arthritis & bursitis, at the same time, in my hip, it bloody hurts, so much empathy. This stuff - https://www.turmericlife.com.au/blogs/recipes/turmeric-recipes-golden-paste - helped no end with the bursitis. The arthritis took a bit longer to figure out, diet in the end, but Golden Paste i...

Re: Wearing of army clothing in town.

I live in Austrian combats, boots & I have an Austrian jacket too. Warm, comfortable, hard wearing, dries fast when it gets wet - which is often up here - and as most women I know will attest, it has proper pockets, and plenty of em. Not had any issues where we live, but when we were in NI in Januar...

Re: Training your pets to be assets

Ten year old Border Collie, who is a barky bugger, and a 7mth old Malinois who is being taught that she doesn't need to go orbital at the mere sound of a garden gate, it's absolutely fine to give a wee rumble and I'll decide if she needs to worry about it from there. Saying that, she is going to be ...

Re: Low carb long life foods

Hubby is keto, I'm between keto & carnivore. Dehydrator. You can cook off things like the tex mex from the diet doctor site and then dehydrate it. You can also cook off and dehydrate minced beef. Add your fats later. Look at coconut oil & ghee as two fairly long term, shelf stable fats that are hea...

Re: B12 injections

You can get B12 from beef liver supplements, and you can get that, dessicated in a capsule, from amazon. I take it as I can't, no matter how I've tried, eat liver. Can't even stand the smell of it raw never mind cooking or cooked! There are other options, apart from beef liver. Sardines are high in ...
