Re: Minutemen groups in A PAW

Not to sound like I'm avoiding the topic, JF89, but I agree with Flybynight (gah, I have to figure out a way to shorten your handle, so long to type but Fly doesn't sound right and night makes you sound like an emo superhero/vigilante). In almost any PAW scenario (with maybe the exception of all out...

Re: Dealing with picky eaters

I have a lot of experience with this. Two out of my three kiddos are picky eaters and my son (who is 7 now) was so bad at one point that he was diagnosed with ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder). And it wasn't a, "starve him out" type of thing. He was already starving himself, at failu...

Re: Really nice, economical sheath maker on etsy.

That's beautiful. And the stitchwork is lovely. I get that there is utility and a purpose for sheaths made of other materials, but I'm not sure you can compete with leather for sheer visual appeal. That being said, that's my opinion and I love just about anything made of leather.

Re: making your mix bean blends

I would think that in general 1 cup of each, depending on how many you have, would work. According to Asymetryczna's ratios, you could do 4 cups of different beans to 8 cups water for a meal for 4-6 people as a main course. I would maybe mix the bean combinations up for different contrast and flavor...

Re: Wind-proof camp stove

Cool. The video demonstrating the unique building process in the link is interesting as well. Although, I am curious how expensive it will be due to the high-tech method of construction. I am also curious if it is made just to boil water or actually cook with a substance surrounding it. There's a di...

Aw, and here I was hoping that with the Prince reference you had changed your callsign to an indecipherable, ambiguous symbol.

Re: i have a question, need help?

I think my top concern with buying and/or re-locating to an abandoned tuberculosis hospital/asylum for any reason is simply all the horror movie ways you would probably die after re-locating there. I mean, "A man buys and moves his family into a long abandoned asylum" sounds like a the movie synopsi...

Re: Archery and progressive lenses

That means the side of the lenses has a pretty distinct ...

Re: Pickled Eggs & Sausage

My Dad loves pickled eggs and your recipe sounds right up his alley. To be honest, I like boiled eggs, but have always been intimidated when I would see them floating in the jar as a kid. Which is silly, because I have eaten bugs and other more intimidating foodstuffs. Maybe it is because they are r...

Re: Blueberries

You've mentioned you grow some in containers. What soil mixture do you use in that? I use larger containers and round out the soil with potting soil/ Peat moss 50/50. Once the bushes get too big I plant them. They can get quite large in a few years. Awesome, thanks for the info. As a crazy plant la...
