Age changes you,for sure. You certainly become wiser . As you suggest though ,some situations require a certain response.

Re: Lessons from a 100 hour power outage

So, our powers back on after 100hours & four nights. Good test of the preps and pleased to say things went very well. Thought I'd share our experience & observations. Firstly, we're a family of two adults & three teenagers, all in good health other than some mild asthma in wife & 2 children. We liv...

If you genuinely can't work out what I meant then you do need to see a doctor .

Re: I got broken into :(

Bloke that tried to break our house picked on the wrong one. I opened the door on him and smashed his face with my 3 cell maglight. Crap torch,but great club! His mate fled,but crashed through the pyrocanthus at the top of the yard,and was picked up by the police dog handler,shredded to bits! Justic...

Re: Will we end up in lockdown again?

It’s real. I don’t want to get ill so I ( we) have worn masks and socially distanced since we didn’t have to! My take; hospitality is exempt. So no lockdown.For now.

Along with reinforcing doors and taking out glass windows, it’s all you can do. As the economy starts to slide,I fear we shall see more of this type of...

I shall have a good look at the roof and chimneys too with my binoculars,just to be sure. Got to replace the roofing on the chicken run too,as we are now ( as usual)...
