Having lived in apartments for years before getting a place of my home one of the first and easiest modifications I would do was to replace the screws in the hinges and the strike plate for the door lock with stainless steel 4" long screws. I would also replace the strike plate with a reinforced one and add a deadbolt to the door if it did not already have one (pending landlord's OK).
I learned to either keep the curtains closed or I'd put up venetian blinds and adjust the angle so I could see...
This definitely requires some explanation. A couple of years ago I wrote Barbarians at the Gates, which was recently picked up and published by Twilight Times Books (Barbarians at the Gates and so I need to write the next book. As always, you can download a free sample from the link above and then purchase it from Amazon Kindle – or I will provide a free copy, in exchange for support with the sequel....
This movie started out okay but soon turned really bad in my humble opinion... Goodbye World (2013) - IMDb
It is free on Netflix at the moment. They went from a good beginning----- to a bunch of want to be hippy's smoking dope, drinking, and cheating on each other...with the most dangerous hazard a couple of Army deserters and a biker gang.
Another movie I recently watched was called "How I live now" also on Netflix. I little more realistic...
I see there are a few riders here now, so here's a place for motorcycle related stuff, like pix, tricks, useful tips for getting out of town in case of SHTF, whatever twists your grip. Here's mine, 04 Triumph Sprint ST. GenMar risers, throttlemeister, and a battery tender, other than that, box stock.
If we get enough interest, we'll set this up as a forum. For now, it's just a sticky for a month or so to guage interest.
I should add, I paid too much for her. I can go extra legal in any...
We are just finishing up a no-permit, off grid, water access only cabin.
It is wired for power, and so far we have a Honda eu2000 generator giving us power when we need it.
At some point I'd like to do solar, but as a first step I'd like to set up a battery pack system and pure sine wave inverter that I could charge with my generator when required - so that I wouldn't have to run the generator each time we...
Since Brokor started that plant thread I got plants on the brain so thought I'd make a thread on landscaping for security. I used to work for a greenhouse/nursery/feed store and we did a lot of landscaping. Sometimes we'd get requests for burglar unfriendly landscaping that didn't look, well, unfriendly. Of course everyone thinks of roses and cacti, but there are a lot of other unpleasant options out there and quite a few are hot with landscape designers right now.
I thought I would try this, probably been done before, but I will post a few pictures of a local plant, everybody partakes and guesses what it is. Have fun. Feel free to also post pictures and keep this going.
I think that many of use think that the current insurance policies protect our investment's in our homes and prep goods... A friend of mine who preps in my AO recently had a break in/house fire and due to the way he collected his preps (in small cash purchases, guns from individuals, etc...), was not able to get insurance to pay off on the total loss... (note this was a small insurance company and not a major chain...)
Last week was Nuclear stuff. 2 more MSA Millenium gas masks, 4 cases of Tyvek coveralls with booties, 2 cases of 20 NBC filters, and 4 CB camelbak bladders in CB "Gobags" for the family to hold under the bed
This week 8/5/06
I picked up 10 bales of TP. 30 'double' rolls a bail @ $.49 each
I wanted to see if fellow Monkeys could share there favorite quotes on interrelated topics such as Liberty-Freedom, the Constitution - Bill of Rights, Unalienable Rights, the Second Amendment, Patriotism, etc. The "status updates" Tweets on our Profile Page are limited to 140 characters which doesn't allow for much profundity.
So, here are a few of my favorites:
"But if someone has a gun and is trying to kill you... it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun." Tenzin Gyatso, 14th...
Okay, I'm not sure this is really tin foil hat material, as every thing I look into makes it look more than obvious. I can easily see big agriculture and big pharma teaming up to create a society of chronically ill, overweight, sugar addicts that are hooked on sugar until they turn diabetic, then shift their sugar buying dollars towards insulin meds and test strips and such, on which their life depends. Evil - yes, but if the people are dumb enough to buy it, the industry will sell it....
Okay, I ran my mouth before starting this recipe (there was no recipe, just a general idea that developed as I cooked), then after making it I had folks drooling at the shoutbox wanting pics and a recipe. I have no pics.
Here is the recipe. It will easily serve 2, or one selfish glutton
2 medium fresh pears ... mine were bosc. ripe and firm but just starting to soften
1/2 cup sherry or marsala wine
2 TBS butter
2 TBS brown sugar
2 heaping TBS sour cream
2 thick slices whole wheat honey...
Have had a pair of FiveFingers for many moons. In fact, I was one of the early people to use them. At least in Hawaii. It is old, beat up and coming apart.
My newish pair. It has a more aggressive tread for trail, but is not as comfortable as the original, which is slippery on muddy and wet trail surfaces, like rocks and logs. And you feel every rock and root. The new one also is thicker and rocks and roots are less likely to make you feel them as much....
I know many of us here have adopted the Primal journey and have had great results. I for one, am all in with the plan and have lost 23 lbs since starting....many others have been much more successful, I tip my hat to you. Many of us have been successful at converting the entire family eating habits and have in-house support while others of us have only our Monkey brothers and sisters to rely on for moral support and information.
I also know there are many out there that have started the...
How would you like to have a battery powered chemical light flashing two different colors and that is infinitely connectable to make a signal baton or mast? In addition, you have the choice of seven different colored beams for a wide angle and focused spot flashlight and more chemical light applications. The same light can also be requisitioned Infra Red and a special Black tube, which produces a discreet focused IR spot and no side light for increased stealth. Would this meet many of your...
We have approximately 320,000,000 people living here, yet, we can't get.00001 % to march in protest against the trampling of our rights and the total deviation from our Constitution.
Glen Beck came the closest with about appr. 500,000 with his 9/12 rally, but it got very little attention from the State Run Media. Then actually tried to make him pay for Security at the protest that was left cleaner than when they started and totally Peaceful!
People were picking trash up off the...
