    Tried 20 year stored pasta - shells- took a minute longer to cook but still tasted good - not stale or old.... Combined well with home canned chicken soup.

    I pump iron 2 days per week, do aerobics 2days per week, and walk an hour or more 2 days per week. However, I eat far too much, so i'm 40 lbs over weight. Lots of muscle, but I can't run for diddly.

    Yesterday, we took the kayaks out for the first time this year, I am a little bit sore from muscles I have not talked to all winter. Today I am moving chicken fencing to have them destroy the vegetation around my slash piles so I can get those burnt (19 of them around 15ft tall and 20-30 ft across), and I may even get around to make my tool shed from the pallets I busted down. It is sunny today, so those are good projects for the day.

    Since last post:

    I repaired the rototiller. I purchased a 1957 Ferguson 35 gas tractor with loader, brush mower, box blade, and back blade. Now, I will be able to maintain my driveway all year round. I will be able to greatly expand my garden and offer garden space to family. If necessary, I will be able to bury the dead.

    I purchased a chiller so I can cool the water in the aquaponic tanks this summer. However, I have found it is much easier to heat water in the winter than to cool it in the summer, so I will probably go back to raising Tilapia next year.

    I purchased a pressure canner, jars, lids, and rings. I made several practice micro-batches of various canned meats and vegetables. My wife refuses to try any of the canned food. I found every item to be very good. But it had only been three months. I plan to have at least 100 jars on hand by fall, but I don't plan to can anything until it becomes necessary, and then I will can from my frozen stores.

    We will be starting our seeds this weekend. The rule around here is never to plant before Memorial Day. So, no rush.

    Working on the "Blackout" curtain installation. And progressing on the "Blackout" shutters for outside. Working towards achieving total "Light Lock" of the cabin, with zero light escaping.

    Your neighbor did not have to get through the day on his own. Your act of kindness in your invitation gave him more than either of you can ever know. God bless you.

    This post does not have anything to do with being prepared but it its more about what did you do today. My wife and daughters have a big meal planed for Thanksgiving. My neighbor down the road had lost his wife a while back. He is a great guy and always ready to help with any project when needed. So I went down to invite him to dinner. He declined and said that he needed to get through this on his own. I told him to come down if he changed his mind. So I guess what I am trying to say is don't forget about your neighbors today
