Awesome! I will definitely check it out. The ones I bought were 2.00 each. I have one in the fridge to try out unless you have a review of it.

I'm pitting cherries today and will be raw packing them. Bought 8 pounds of oats already packed in mylar and some jelly jars. The jars are earmarked for cranberry sauce this fall.

Sunday it's grand girls birthday party, a trip to Sams and picking up 2 - 55 gallon barrels on the way home.

Wife went out to the garage sales today and picked up a big box of fishing lures and tackle that I get to go through tonite, She also found 2 dozen arrows(carbon and Aluminum mixed) for $10 with the broadheads. She also picked some odds and ends gold and silver jewelry (she's a shark and can sniff out the good stuff)

Went to Sam's today and bought 280 dollars worth of groceries to include a really nice Stanley power inverter/ battery charger. Been looking at them for months and BAM there it was in front of me on the shelf this morning! First real "impulse buy" Ive made in a while. Now just have to hide it so DH doesn't find it or he'll say What the H*ll did you buy this thing for? (he's not thinking about when the power goes out ) Guess he'd be happier if I bought jewelry or clothes or some other crap....Oh well guess they NEVER come to appreciate us practical girls UNTIL somethng happens.

After getting my EOTech back from L-3 for a repair (FANTASTIC customer service, by-the-way; 8 days from the day I mailed it til the day it got back to me) I sighted it in on my M&P15T for 300 meters. That was yesterday.

Today, I got a Wicked Lasers Arctic Spyder iii in the mail. I swapped it for a couple tickets to an air show. It's strobing effect seems bright enough to disorient a home invader, but mounting it to a weapon may or may not be practical. It's pretty cool. Strong enough to start stuff on fire on its highest setting. I just need to figure out what to do with it in a practical sense now. If not, I'll probably swap it for something else, or sell it and buy something. It's really unique though.

Printed off the USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning.

Worked in the garden earlier - slowly clearing a spot to double the space for next year. Adding all the weeds to a compost pile.

Picked up 8 more gallons of vinegar and some sugar. I didn't realize how much you use canning. I actually had to dip into my preps and get sugar a few days ago. I was in the middle of canning and the sugar jar was empty and the extra bag I thought was sugar was flour.

Tomorrow I'm stopping at a farmer's market and hoping to get a bunch of jalapenos. They had them last week for $1.50 for about a quart. I'm planning on doing more canning tomorrow. Anyone got a favorite recipe for jalapenos?

This week has been a busy one.

Monday: I spent the evening checking tires: my truck, the wife’s car, and all the bicycles. I also checked the fluids in the vehicles – everything checked out, no leaks, nohting low other than windshield washer fluid.

Tuesday: I found a listing on Craiglist for an Aosom Cargo Trailer for my bike (my backup bug out transportation). The guy was asking $60.00. It has 20’ rims and tires instead of the normal 16” version, which is really appealing to me. 20” rims, tires and tubes are everywhere. I researched it, and the thing is rated for 180lbs, has a solid steel floor, and includes the full canvas. It looked to be in good shape, so I emailed the guy.

Wednesday: The guy with trailer called, and I met him after work. The trailer was exactly what he said it was – it is in next to new condition. Tires are a little dry-rotted, but I already have plans for tires with more of a street tread anyway – less resitance, and a whole lot quieter. I gave him his full asking price ($60.00); he was honest and reasonable – plus these for over $120.00 new from what I can tell. I’m happy, he’s happy, it a win-win scenario. I guess that Craigslist can be a decent place to find things afterall.

Thursday: Bought the tires I want for the bike trailer ($12.00 each at Walmart), plus new tubes (pre-slimed). Mounted them Thursday evening without any issues. I installed the trailer hitch mount on my bicycle, and took it for a test ride. Honestly, I barely notice it is back there unless I hit a bump and even then it is more noise than a feeling. I’m still convinced this is the way to go for me.

Friday: I noticed when I was changing out the tires on the bike trailer that the rims are less than true. I picked up a spoke wrench at lunch, and spent a little bit of trial and error remembering how to true a bicycle rim again. It’s been years, but after about an hour, I now have a bicycle cargo trailer with new tires, tubes, and rims that are straight and true. I rode around the block with it behind me again, I barely noticed it before, and now I have to look behind me to double check it is still there.

The wife may not fully appreciate it, but I’m happy with the progress I made this week. I spent right around $100.00 total, and I tripled my cargo capacity for my “human-powered” transortation. I’ll try to remember to post some pics this weekend.

Tomorrow will be a run to the local goodwill to look for deals. You never know what you’ll find in those places.

The wife is taking her CWP class & test in the morning. If she fails, then I have failed in teaching her.

Yesterday I watched the hour long episode of Gardeners World (BBC). Its a great programme about growing veg, gardens etc. They covered growing leeks and onions this week, also how to do some cuttings.

Its BOB Saturday today so Im going to replace the dog food with a new pack, and also go through the BoB Jacket so I can get used to using the equipment and know where it is in the jacket.
