If Antifa does start coming to suburbia or rural areas like they claim, does anyone know what the bag limit will be?

Had some requests for my sourdough yeast. So, I started a 1 gallon size jar.
So, I have a large amount to dry & gift away.
Which is active as possible.

I am doing something I haven't done in a while, doing a 1 week diet to drop the extra weight I gained after my accident last year and the winter. I basically just eat fruits and vegetables ( no fat or protein or anything processed).
I consider this prepping since I will be in better shape. I will have to do this twice to get back to my normal weight ( 1 week a month for 2 months)

Also planted more stuff ( fennel and peppers today) , husband and son are working on the fruit trees.

Three weeks per pint, I think that would work for us.

Our older dog (14+yr chihuahua) has developed an issue with an upper canine which is causing issues with his health. Being a small dog they have a lot packed into a tiny snout. We took him in this morning and he is undergoing multiple tooth removal surgery. Still waiting to hear from the vet that he is ok and we can go get him. Wife is on pins and needles as heís a mommas dog. Iím not really happy either. I love my dogs and hate seeing them sick. Not knowing is grating on me.

Annnnd... just after I post that we get a message from the vet that everything went well. Phew! Thank God! Will head to town to pick him up shortly. At least we can breathe a sigh of relief.
Been a rough year around here for teeth as the wife had all hers pulled earlier in the year.

Son will knock down a pint a week of whatever we just canned. Right now is't orange marmalade. Strawberries are out two weeks and he will be ready for them when it's time.

Yes, I remember the days when the kids were living at home. Our grocery bills have dropped substantially since then and even more since two of them moved out of State.

Does that make the 5th or 6th such claim since this all started?

Last fall I made 60 jars of pomegranate jelly. the trees are blooming, gong to be a better crop. the apricots froze, no fruit, peaches, figs and nectarines looking good, even some apples. by fall we will have a 5 year supply. I may need to adopt some kids.

I live in a very low-crime area, but we had recent reports of guys breaking into cars to steal garage door openers. One guy a short distance away got his gun to check out his garage, found two guys in there, and they fired at the homeowner. Nobody hurt, only bullet holes to patch were in the walls. Another report of shots fired last night, police said they were apparently trying to distract people from catching a nearby B&E in progress.

Not normal petty criminals, so I upgraded the bedroom kit, moved the game camera to watch the truck and garage door, and took the garage door opener out of the truck.
