Wood Burning

Don’t know about YOUR area, but here: Snow and WINTER.
For you wood burners, I write this, for others contemplating a PELLET stove:  Before you get one, THINK!  If your Elect, goes “down”…SO DOES THE PELLET STOVE!  It NEEDS ELECTRICITY TO RUN.
In short, if you think it’s a good “Back Up” buy…it ISN’T!  Aho?
Now for the others:  If you are one within reach of a SAWDUST Pile,  GET PAPER BAGS….Along with “cast-off” Tiny wood CHIPS (etc.).   Doesn’t need to be BIG pieces,  Then mix some of the little pieces Within a BAG of SAWDUST,  Do this in paper bags.  Fold the top over your “mix” and light.
The “chips” will cause the SAWDUST to Rekindle via those chips…keeping the sawdust smoldering and heating.  Aho?
We had a 55 gallon Barrel Stove,  Each night we’d put in 3 bags,  BURNED ALL NIGHT!  Only took 3 bags to keep our 2 bedroom, place comfortable.   Did this 2 winters (before moving).  Sure cut down on fire wood.
 
Good Luck,  GB   re

Television

Watching a new series of “Preppers”.  Simply a new batch of fearfull people.  “Christians” included.
Like a number in past shows,  “Bug Out” ready.  I am too…but in a super light way.  You see, I HAVE THE CREATOR’S PROMISES…and FULLY BELIEVE in THIS!
Most have “run to” spots (as do we)….GIVEN spot.  10 acres.  I can only TRUST “Dad” will WARN US to “GO!”.
What type Prepping are they / you prepping for”  Earthquake?  Fire?  Radiation?
Will your “spot” be as ours:  across MANY Bridges?
BRIDGES FALL DOWN!  so…how FAR do you INTEND TO GET (to your “spot”.  EXPECT SOME WON’T BE POSSIBLE.  You’ll only get so far / park / and die right there (always a possibility).  Aho?
What if it’s a “controlled” happening (Government)?  ARE you aware “they” can KILL YOUR ENGINE at THEIR Discretion?
Whatever, to WALK.  No matter what the “event”…
THIS “engine killing” HAS BE KNOWN (and USED) since early WWII!   (NEVER USED cause War = MONEY.  Aho?)
I am not SPECULATING on this…KNOW THE BEST FRIEND WHO INVENTED IT!!!
In short, folks….our only SAFE way to survive, is STICKING in “HIM”!
YOU don’t understand…YOU.
We are ALL simply ENERGY.  Literately, a (“His”) DREAMING!
ALL is of the SAME Energy. 
YOU call your body…and all around you:  REALITY.   This its ‘firm’ in your mind.  In mine though….I see Gods’ WORD….We / EVERYTHING, is simple “His” THOUGHT (dream) ENERGY.
IDENTICAL ‘Make Up’.
Learn THAT to FULL KNOWING..and you need NEVER Fear.
Good Luck.   In “Him”….

The Least Shall Be First

The least shall be First…

Ever think on that?  

Should….as we of Earth are FULL of “least”.

They cook your McDonald’s meals / Clean your work spaces / Dig our graves / Sweat in the fields so we can eat, etc.
The “least”.  Janitors at  our schools / Sewer workers / the Housewife…….and on and on.
“The least”.
People, just like the rest of us.  Eeking out a living, for Pennies…so WE can “Live a ‘Better Life”.
AND LOOKED DOWN UPON!
The “hidden ones”.  Unseen.
So, you think YOU are “SOMETHING’?
SHAME on US who do.
Perhaps you have no change to Tip.  AT LEAST GIVE THEM A ‘THANK YOU’ SMILE!
Help make them feel WORTHY.

For they ARE!

Camping WATER TIP – Plus

How to get  portable water while hiking:  I bought a small FOLDING umbrella (1,00 Cheap Shop) and a pair of lady’s Nylon socks (49 cents…same shop).  I’ve cut a 1 inch hole at top of umbrella and glued a patch of sock over the hole. Then added a stabilizing “line” on the INVERTED (now) umbrellas AND packed a large mouth CAN in / around the can.  Both little hole and can opening now  “filters” from debris / insect and  mice entry.  (I will buy a collapsible BOWL ($16.00) when I’ve spare $$…more convenient to take and less room in pack then a can.

The umbrella turned up-side-down and placed (at a slight tilt) atop the container.  Any rain / snow / dew(?) now caught. 
The FOUR lines staked down to hinder wind.  Aho?
The Weight and Size quite “takeable”.
With this you now have a regular umbrella to ward off rain…sun, and possibly a Solar Cooker  (I’ll leave THAT How To up to you).
More: I got my Wash Board today.  Till I get a Hand Wringer, I’m all set.  I’ve a Very Dirty pair of jeans and a white T shirt.  Gonna see how well the WASH PLUNGER / Boar and “sweat” will do on these tonight.  I’ll have to Wring by hand for now.
I’ll use FELS NAPTHA soap…as did my mother and grandmother.  It’s still sold at supermarkets.
I’ll add some VINEGAR (can use other “odors”).  This to keep Ticks / Etc., away.
Hope these help someone.

Had enough money to buy a number of feet of Soft Denim (blue jean color) cloth.  Cheap shop.  $4.08.  Enough to make 3 to 4 nice LOIN CLOTHS.  I’ll have my wife cut and hem them for me. An easy “do” for her.
As you can tell, I “practice what I Preach”.
I’ll be wearing these at our secluded property so no one is “disturbed”.  Aho?
I’ll have her sew on 2 or so  LOOPS on the front.  Knife / Flint / Etc. to be with  me at all times then.  My CHIEF A.J. Slingshot to hang on the “belt” if wanted, as well as small  sock with Marble “shot”.
ARE YOU intrusted in “ditto”? 
Before closing: I’ve been Posting on GHOST’S  HUB….Google by Typing in: Survival Cabin on a Shoestring Budget.  This will get you there.
