DoubleBarrelPatriot went out for my bi-monthly trip for provisions. the REAL reason was medications but while i'm out, better top off.

180 dollars, half of which was adding stuff to the rotation:

bread
milk
eggs
butter
yogurt
fresh fruit

the other half went to junk foods.

in the spirit of this website, I added some more chocolate bars to my freezer experiment. Back on p.1986 I showed pics of my vacuum sealing different kinds of chocolate bars to see what kind of life i can get out of them, well past the 1-2 year expectancy (at best). Hoping for 5-10. I added a couple bars today. Freezer is looking like something out of the Wonka factory.

So far:
Milk chocolate (multiple)
Dark chocolate of different varieties (multiple)
Mr. Goodbar
White "chocolate"
Baking chocolate (Multiple)

Prepping I was chuckling last night and today at haircuts folks got. We've been locked down for a bit longer than most, not as much as others.

At work we got an order of nitrile gloves. I've never seen staff grab them up so fast.

If the material is available, we will do this every Saturday.
(Thanks coworkers)
We also got a few more folks set up to work remotely, so about half of our staff is now at home.

I was able to score more gloves, and enough groceries to replace what we are using.
I don't smoke and seldom drink. Barter items.

I still wear mine long, too...I just put it in one long braid. Keeps it out of my face. It's actually faster for me to do that than to try to style it when it's short (besides, I look like crap with short hair) and since I don't have styling tools (not that it would work anyway) it's just easier to leave it long and in a braid.

My "prep" was bringing my work laptop home, getting it set up, and checking to make sure that my VPN connection worked, since I'll be teleworking for the foreseeable future.

EventHorizon With just 309 cases in the county decided to make an after work trip to the neighborhood Walmart. Bought a 5 lb. bag of Great Value unbleached flour for the wife's sourdough starter experiment. (there were two left on the shelf). A case of Sam's Club Diet Soda (last one) a 10 pack of Monterrey breakfast burritos and a jug of Sunny D. Parking lot volume was mediun and lots of gaps on the shelves.

My chicken order from February was cancelled , they sold out after confirming and no more for the year so I plan to sterilize my incubator tomorrow . I am buying a meat rabbit doe from a reputable breeder I know . She only has one available .

My prep for the last week has been to start another quilt, on top of the other projects I'm doing. I had some really nice fabric that I hadn't done anything with and wanted to make a really nice bedspread, and it will be pretty, I think. Sort of a crazy quilt with gold, orange, bronze, copper, green and yellow colors. Most of the fabric is that synthetic satin stuff.

bunkerbuster My son traded some ammo for a brand new case of 20 3M N100 masks.
He just emailed me he will drop off 10 of them in our secure drop box tomorrow.

bunkerbuster Respironics System One REMstar Plus 60 Series CPAP with Heated Tubing Humidifier



Positive airway pressure is a mode of respiratory ventilation used in the treatment of sleep apnea. PAP ventilation is also commonly used for those who are critically ill in hospital with respiratory failure, in newborn infants, and for the prevention and treatment of atelectasis in patients with difficulty taking deep breaths. In these patients, PAP ventilation can prevent the need for tracheal intubation, or allow earlier extubation. Sometimes patients with neuromuscular diseases use this variety of ventilation as well. CPAP is an acronym for "continuous positive airway pressure", which was developed by Dr. George Gregory and colleagues in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of California, San Francisco.

I feed mine well. When TEOTWAWKI runs me out of retail cat food, I'll euthanize the feral cats and probably my pets as well.
in my humble opinion, feral cats are too effective in a pest-control role to be killed that way in SHTF. some might starve, but those that survive will help keep mice from infesting your residence which can lead to spoilage and hygienic problems. especially critical in the first year after SHTF, especially in suburban/urban areas, because a sudden drop in food waste from restaurants will cause mice and rats to more aggressively move into homes and occupied structures where food still remains

CatBell Got more boxes of milk (Tetra paks aka aseptic boxes). We have powdered but I have two boys who want vanilla milk and chocolate milk sometimes. We all need morale boosting treats. Good luck everyone! Stay in good spirits.

keithp Ordered a few more gamma lids for further storage expansion. Froze two dozen eggs. Candidly admitting I never thought of freezing eggs until recently. Theoretically, I am working from home but the Toshiro Mifune / Kurasawa fest on TCM is taking up ALOT of my bandwidth.

bunkerbuster Took some Nacho essentials out of our pantry to make a couple large pizza sized Nachos today. Besides what's pictured add fajita flavored cooked ground beef or diced pulled pork.
