Re: Emergency home lighting

My approach to emergency lighting relies on both modern and old technologies. We have rechargeable torches around the house which turn on if there's a power failure. I also have several torches (I love buying torches, you can never have too many.) :) Over the years we have also collected antique bra...

Re: Audiobooks or reading?

It's real books for me every time. For a start there's something special in just being able to pick up the book and hold it in your hands, look at the loose cover, open it, check when it was first published and how many times it's been reprinted. Then there's often information about the author on th...

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

Then there's torches, batteries....... I think I need to see nurse for my tablets. Ah, torches, one can never have enough torches. :) I keep looking on the Olight Torches site at the X9R Marauder. I can't quite understand why my dear wife says, "No way!" After all, what's a mere £550.00 for a decen...

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

Last bit of prepping done tonight Do you really mean your preps are now complete or is that just tonights preps? Wow, what a wonderful position to be in, to feel completely prepped with everything you might possibly need. I'm not sure I'll ever be in that position. Whatever I buy, however large my ...

Re: Bunker. Norfolk. £25k

If a ROC bunker is your idea of having a safe, secure BOL then great. Having previously lived in Brundall for ten years I can confirm it and nearby Strumpshaw are pleasant places to live; also the bunker price seems very reasonable to me (not that I can afford it!) However the thought of voluntarily...

Re: Brexit in October?

Another point on the Tesco stock issue. Mrs A informs me that they have closed down their butchers department completely and now only sell pre-packed cuts of meat. (Didn't even notice it myself, shows how little I go inside.) Its a big store too not a little local one, I wonder if this is happening...

The OH has just reminded me that she uses demerara sugar for her crumbles. It's going straight on the list for our next visit to Lidl!

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

Thank you all for your kind words in welcoming me back to the fold; it's much appreciated. I always make sure there are a couple of bags of sugar in store. Why I'm not sure; in the normal course of events it's hardly ever used and months later I'll find its turned into a solid "brick" at the back of...
