orgprophet: spinifex ... you can not prep if you can not get things, when the gfc hit it was a liquidity issue ... banks stopped trusting other banks to be able to pay so the system was grinding to a halt .... when confidence erodes that credit no longer is issued to

orgprophet: other banks or other suppliers of goods, the shelves will become empty ... banks can become closed, credit cards all suspended ... and you will have to live on what you have available ... this happens when hyperinflation kicks in or confidence is lost

spinifex: Getting some good rains now. Hope it extends to the dry areas 100km north of here - farms up there have been missing out a lot this winter and struggling to keep stock fed.

Interesting... We have a neighbor, about 4km that keeps a lot of bees.. He uses conventional boxes and some open top V shape boxes that you set a V shaped insert in with a cross bar on top of the V long enough to hang in the trough. Supposedly makes it much easier to pull out sections to harvest and replace with sections for the bees to refill. I don't know any other details about that.
As you can imagine his biggest problem is bears....... He uses a system of sectional dog kennels around the hives well anchored down. With high power solar electric fence around the kennel. With "bear mats" all around the complex. Bear Mats are plywood with hundreds of 50mm or longer dry wall type screws sharp point up... Even with all this he still looses a hive or two a year.
I know when I hear his big 300 Winchester magnum bark to keep watch along the shore of our lake and swamps which are directly up stream from him.
When I mentioned it he said he had heard of the "3-S" predator control system before.... Thats all there is to say about that..

Well, I can say that it's an immitation Flow frame as the genuine ones sell for about $100 each frame. I don't know whether these would be as good or not I can't comment there. Some people have speculated that the knock offs may not use food grade plastic and therefore chemicals might leach into the honey.
