Re: B12 injections

Depressing. We're still giving injections in the community up here (with appropriate ppe) but sadly I agree that it seems down to individual GP practices. Thankfully I'm in the uber privileged position of being about 90% autonomous so can decide with my patients what we deem to be an acceptable risk...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

That is good idea for a stove. Will be trying that too. On the topic of Jerry cans I have filled up my motorbike tanks that have been empty over the winter but I can't see the logic of buying new jerry cans to take advantage of low fuel costs. If we're saving 30p a litre that's £1:50 per 5 litre can...

Re: Hello from Hampshire

Hi Daniel, yes try not to get overwhelmed & panicky about the big picture. The best way I found for me was to pop a couple of extra cans of beans or tomatoes or something similar in the trolley while doing the weekly shop and once home just put it away in a different cupboard/under the bed/in the sh...

Re: Potato Help please

I've always grown them using old potatoes from the kitchen. No problems with disease just make sure you plant them in a different area each year. You can eventually return to the original position.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Hi all, a while ago I posted that I was being redeployed to a covid palliative care ward. I'm pleased to report that as of today I'm back in my normal nursing role as the covid palliative care ward has closed due to low patient numbers. The other dedicated covid wards in the hospital remain open and...

Re: So,have your preps been useful?

Hi jansman, the biggest eye opener for me was the move away from cash to people preferring electronic payments. I'd always assumed cash would be the "go to" option. So biggest prep for the future is to ensure we have instant access to both types of funds. We're increasing our long term supplies too ...

Re: Dried beans

And if you soak your lentils overnight and then blend until smooth with as little liquid as you can, they make decent egg and flour free pancakes or flatbread things.

Sounds good - is that red lentils still?

Ooh! Swollen tins? Target practice :D
Target or projectile ??
Hadn't even thought about them being the projectile! That's excellent! I'm off to dent some tins & leave them in the sun!
