Re: Choice and sources of Jars

I don't know if this will help - we get through about a kg of coconut oil a month, and the stuff we buy comes in mason jars. It's not any more expensive than buying it in a binnable container, about a tenner a kg, but the jars are resuseable, and will hold 1L. Not as easy as just buying the jars you...

Re: WHO warns vaccinated travellers could still need to be quarantined

Every time a virus jumps host & replicates, there is a chance it makes a 'mistake' in the replication & those are mutations. Some are significant, most are not. As a *general* rule, viruses evolve to become...

Re: Kindle for 72hr bug out bag ?

And as far as privacy goes, I tend to assume that if you are online, you have just shared with the world to some degree. This week's Sunburst hack shows that it does not matter how paranoid you are, you can still lose data as the US military have just learned. It is why it look me so many years to ...

Kindle - around 400 books

Kindle app on tablet with the biggest sized memory card that fits - 2k+ books & counting.

I know which one I'd take, along with a solar charger!
