Re: What are you doing to strengthen your immune system?

Nearly two years ago I started taking nicotinamide riboside (NR), which is an NAD+ precurser. I learned about it from listening to Dr David Sinclair talk about his research on NMN. Every spring my allergies hit and I'm fighting off sinus and lung infections. It commonly turns into pneumonia. This y...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Sitting on my desk was a NIB Zev-09. In order to get this very, very nice pistol, I have to agree to let Lil's Mom come stay with us for a year. Honestly I'm considering tell them (Lil, Bec, Sam, Noona and the Wicked Witch of the West) all to pack sand. I don't think the bribe is worth the price. W...

Re: Food Chat - Dinner conversation anyone?

I've tried fruit preserves a couple times in my life, but I wasn't a fan. In other food related news, I came up with a recipe I call "Lazy Bastard Hamburger Steak". :lol: Basically, you take frozen hamburger patties, heat them up on a George Foreman grill, and then put some brown gravy (either from...

ThermaCare wraps. As someone who regularly gets in the car when it feels like an oven and turns on the seat heaters for her back, they're fabulous.

Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

We still have lots of blank spaces on the shelves in our local stores - especially if you're looking for specialty items (like gluten-free food). When I find them, I'm buying more than I usually would as they might not have any when I go back for the next week's shopping.

And CDC states that only 6% were Cooties only deaths. The other 94% had an AVERAGE of 2.6 comorbidities. Which means those people had 3.6 illnesses including COVID. The average age of death is 81.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

2 thoughts on this: 1. I’ve seen info stating that in places that had an exceptionally light flu season, COVID is killing more people - basically, the ones that probably would have died of the flu had they caught it this year. 2. This is what happens when what drugs (and supplements, and vitamins) c...

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

That is a good video. And commendably apolitical. One thing I'd add regarding City Prepper's suggestion that Election Day might be a bad time to get away from your urban home for a few days: have enough food, clothing and other supplies (including a cash reserve) to last you for at least double the...

You hit some great points. The RV won't let us do a loft. Depending on how the loft is done it can yeild 50%-100% more square footage. That is attractive. And the tiny house can be better insulated.

Stash it. Until things go back to normal, anything extra is getting stashed.

Working on breaking the candy and junk food addictions in favor of real food.

Can't you just tell them you'll be out of state at the time of the election...
