  1. I was wondering if you had quit eating. That looks tasty.
  2. All my kids will come to my house if things get stupid. I have the ability to ride out a fairly long storm.
  3. Those look very nice. I'm jealous. Still almost a month before I can start.
  4. Your best bet is to hurry up and get it. If you survive you are golden. If everyone gets it quickly it has less time to mutate before failing. CDC just announced that everyone needs to prepare for this thing NOW.
  5. If you can keep the seeds above 75-80 degrees they will almost always sprout and grow.
  6. I still believe that the virus impact will not be that bad. The economic impact of loss of the supply chain may continue to be a problem for a few years. And they "used to" make fun of preppers.
  7. Get all of your prescriptions filled as far out as you can. Buy beans and rice. The virus may not get you, but the economic impacts are going to be terrible. Should have kept all of our manufacturing at home. DOW down 1039 points today. Should double that tomorrow. Not going to be pretty. I bought a gorillion seeds.
  8. I used to shoot trap and skeet for the high school team when I was in the 8th grade. 12 gauge. Had a purple shoulder all week. Great fun.
  9. No, it is correct. Works out to 876 millibars. I am not only at a higher latitude, I am at 3750' above sea level. Make gardening even more fun. At your house would be a hurricane.
  10. They look okay. They are kinda leggy. Try to get the light down to almost touching them.
  11. Bazooka, flame thrower, and a Honey Badger.
  12. I have been tortured by mice for years. Turn about is fair play. She is a great cat. True calico cats are rare. I just realized how dirty the floor is in that picture.
  13. Was going to mention the electric fence charger, but thought better of it. Do try the bucket with a couple inches of water. That works really good. You can even put a little wooden stick ramp up to the rim. They are not real bright they will fall in. If the water is deep enough, they can't jump out while standing in the water. Ive been known to put a teaspoon of peanut butter in the water and let it float around. Gets them every time. The hazards of sticky traps: If I put them where the cat can get to them, I put a shoe box or something over the trap. Cut a small hole in it on opposite ends so the mice can get inside, but the cat can't. Like a roach motel. Mice check in, but they don't check out. Make sure to put the box along a wall. Mice will walk along the edge of a space before moving to the middle. One more thing you can try. Sprinkle a little Cayenne pepper or other really hot ground chile powder around. They get it in their nose, and makes them starve because they can't find food. I usually sprinkle some in the corners where I would normally not go.
  14. Glue traps are the only thing I have found that will catch the little buggers. I also have a one gallon bucket with about 3 inches of water in it. They jump in to get a drink, they don't jump out. Works best when hot outside. Also have ferocious barn cat. Kills anything that moves. Can take birds on the wing. Jumps higher than Michael Jordan. You could also try some small covers made from hardware cloth.
