Re: Tin opener

It was weird how he couldn't get the hang of what is just two bits of metal. I'm not sure if he was just applying the pressure wrong or was just naturally awkward but either way he couldn't seem to get it right. You're probably right when you say it wasn't like a "normal" tin opener and that was wha...

Re: Tin opener

Like you I keep a P38 on my keys and carry a SAK. Reminds me of another incident when someone at work took a tin but not an opener . He asked the rest of us if anyone had one and I produced my p38 and handed it to him . Completely blank look on his face as he had never seen one before . I showed hi...

Re: Tin opener

We've got a couple or three around the kitchen as well as the ones on SAK's and my p38 on my key ring . I do remember some time in the past not having one to hand , not very preppery I know in fact before I'd even heard the term. I was at work and someone had brought in some tins but had forgotton t...

Re: Sometimes

I suppose i could always argue that this wasn't something Id spent money or work on , that accolade must go to my parents but it would be a pretty thin argument. I'll put it down to an oversight , to err is human and all that.

Re: Sometimes

True I could if I wanted to but i'm tight and it's an expensive way to buy not very much milk. To be honest the meme. of the thread was more about not keeping stuff for donkeys years than anything else. To be more thorough wiith the rotations and to check just what's hiding behind the pickled beetro...

Re: Sometimes

A while ago I read that a prepper somewhere had to replace ALL his long term stores. Was that you? ;) No not me thankfully , we're generally much better at rotation than that. To be honest I think the milk originally came from my parents house . They died in 2012 so I've only really had it seven ye...

Sometimes

Sometimes I have to admit defeat. With the recent hot weather carrying milk in a van has been more likely to see it go off by lunchtime. I mentioned to my wife that I would start taking powdered milk. She produced a tin from the pantry saying to use the oldest first . Made sense I thought . The milk...

Re: Feeding the masses

No association with him other than via re-enactment but a guy called Martin Crowley (http://cowleysfinefoods.co.uk ) sells jerky and the like and at one point was selling jellied sweets with insects inside visible through the jelly. I can't quite remember what insects they contained although somethi...

Re: Brexit in October?

I suppose its a bit saddening that we're all so accepting of what we're going to get, whatever it is. Its a pity we can't run a poll on here to see what we all thinks how it will pan out. I've been the whole political route in years past, fighting for what I believed in. Some exceptional voices *do...

Re: Brexit in October?

To be stoic about it worrying about it one way or another isn't going to change anything nor for that matter is moaning endlessly on social media which some of my friends do. In or out I still think the long slow crash is happening or will continue , things are going to be ever so slightly worse wit...
