paranoia: It's actually spelt "Marshall" Law, everyone gets it wrong though so no biggie, also remember it's important to time the backflips so you don't get knocked out...

This is something hubby and I are in the process of wanting to get set up. We have a friend who is a lawyer and he has advised that Trusts can be a bit tricky to set up by yourself and can cost anywhere from $500 to $2000 to set up plus that in accounting fees each year. (This is from the below article)

If you are going to be in a shelter for a few days, I have heard the recommended time is about 2 weeks unless as you say you are evacuated, you may want to think of an entertainment kit and a battery operated clock. I watched a show about how boredom in a low stimulus situation can cause brain function to be reduced. Especially iif you are in a shelter where there is no day light your circadian rhythm will be out of wack and depression can set it rather quickly as well as confusion so a clock will help with your sense of time and when you need to eat. Of course have your food and water and medical items etc just add some entertainment stuff like books cards note paper and pens etc If you are going to find yourself alone in a shelter then a battery and crank operated radio with a USB slot is a good idea. Load audio books and lectures onto USB and you will have the sound of another Human Voice.
You can just tell others your kit is in case of blackout. While we may already have an entertainment kit set up it is good to know how very important it is to our survival both physically and mentally.

"I wouldn't want to survive a nuclear war anyway!"
Unless you are in the impact zone you will more than likely survive it, but may die a slow painful death from radiation. I would much rather try to protect myself from it and try my chances at surviving although my chances may be slim!!

Heartburn is caused by not enough stomach acid. The food is not being digested quick enough and refluxes back up which weakens the valve between the stomach and esophagus. You can take hydrochloric acid supplements to aide in digestion. As we age the levels of stomach acid decline and the incidence of reflux increases and taking anti acids can make the issue worse. Low stomach acid can cause a bacterial overgrowth in the stomach as well as allowing the bacteria that causes ulcers, Helicobacter pylori, to thrive!

SO last night about 6pm I was in the kitchen preparing dinner and daughter was in the lounge when a loud bang and tearing noise happened. All the power went out and we were in darkness. We live next door to a restaurant and veggie store and there is a parking area for customers to which the driveway goes past our house. I looked out the kitchen window and saw a delivery truck pulling in to parking. I thought it was going a little fast and was crashing through our gate and into the restaurant next-door. It turns out he had hit the power lines connecting to our house and managed to rip all our power lines out from the fuse box to the power pole. So we are still not connected back up as several different tradies have had to come out to do the job of putting everything back.
Electrician Power company Carpenters and builders Painter to paint the board that was ripped out and splintered
So many people in my yard at the same time. Its taking a while as each person has to wait for another to do what they need to do. Now it looks like hubby has to drive an hour away to get a bracket to fix the power lines securely. Tradies are coming back and forth and I am sitting in the restaurant next door typing this.
Anyway last night we played games by lamplight and listened to music.
Prepare tips from this
1) Games to play we have lots. 2) Keep batteries in an easily to find place something I need to improve on. 3) We were able to boil water on our spirit burner for a cuppa etc. 4) We have a crank and battery operated radio on which is a usb port so we were able to play some music from a USB stick. Also had the radio for entertainment. 5) Create good relationships with neighbours as I have been able to use their internet on one side and power on the other side. have been able to charge our macbook and iPad and phones. 6) We need to work on our alternative power more.

Yes I do think he is showing others that he means what he says he will do. Before he was elected one of his policies was to defeat ISIS. The attack on the Syrian air base was just a chess move he made within 24 hours the Syrians were already flying out from that base again as I dont think there was a lot of damage done to the airstrips. With this one move he sent a strong message and also got some of his previous critics on side. He may have lost some of his former supporters but it is a small price to pay.
Hi, I fail to understand silver, it is more plentiful than Gold as far as I know, and it was in big demand when we used to take pictures on film, the film industry was the major industrial use for silver...and that has gone so I don't know what dives its price any more, surely it is more than the fact people like the look of it.
Maybe I'm biased against silver, from working in the electrical industry. You see when I was an electrician we had a fault that used a few expensive fuses intermittently. We use to throw the fuses in the bin but noticed people scrounging the fuses out if the bin....as far as I was concerned they were blown and of no value, until we figured out people were getting the silver foil out of them....so we decided to collect all our blown fuses ourselves and maybe pay for Christmas drinks with the proceeds. So through the year all the fuses went into a collection bin and the idea became very popular, so popular I'm not sure all the fuses getting put in the bin were actually blown! So with Christmas a week or so away we set out to get the silver out of these fuses and melt it down for scrap to have our Christmas event.....but after nearly a days work and hundreds of fuses we ended up with just enough silver to cover the bottom of a breakfast bowl....I estimate about three or four dollars worth! Give me Gold over silver any time!
I see silver as small change when you want to make small exchanges! I would not want to pull out my gold for something small!

For sure BCE it is an amazing thing! Can you imagine a large scale event? Its actually scary how people respond, first just getting through it, then disbelief, then anger "Somebody should be doing something about this!!!", instead of being the someone who does do something about it. We have lost our resilience and fortitude something that generations past probably had in abundance!
