    Added to article on Hardening a Suburban Brick Home:


    If we place 2 X 6s across the bottoms of window panes;

    and possibly using our tractor to dig out the 4 foot space just outside of the window, lowering the ground;

    Intruders cannot/will not shoot low in that room.

    This creates a safe space for occupants. They can lay next to the outside brick wall. Intruders firing from the opposite side of the house will also be shooting high. Therefore, simply by lowering the window bar you will have also created plenty of safe spaces.

    Pretty quiet around here lately, but we've put up a couple more cameras around the house in very obscure locations and a couple of dummy cameras as decoys. (a few years ago we actually had a real camera catch a "visitor" spray painting the lens of a dummy decoy... kinda funny actually).

    Also added another 10 boxes of Mountain House meals (6 pouches per box) to the weekday home stockpile. We'll sometimes have these for a quick breakfast or lunch... they're actually very good. We try to keep about 180 days worth for the two of us on hand here.

    No new purchases in the "OMG Pandemic" category - already have enough of that stuff around.

    Update on my sourdough starter.

    It smells amazing. So much better than my last try. I made pancakes today with the starter I would otherwise have discarded and they were good, but not much sourdough taste. I think it will be ready for me to try making bread with it by next weekend, so realistically, I won't be able to try it until the following Monday.

    Also, I ordered some mylar bags today that are supposed to work with my FoodSaver. I'll report back after I've had a chance to try them.

    Going to get some range time in tomorrow. My owner has been driving me nuts so I need to blow some holes in something. I am rotating a couple of 55 gallon water containers this weekend as well. I want to double check my heavy mill plastic and duct tape storage also. I want to make sure I have more then enough should I need to seal the house or create a clean room.

    How do you avoid suffocating if you seal a room off?

    Bottled oxygen.

    I try not to make plans much. The word 'premeditated' would get tossed around in court.

    You would never seal it well enough to keep the air out. More like keeping particulates out in case of fall out, or a clean room with controlled access.

    You wouldn't, because you have to breath. But you couldn't either with just duct tape and plastic. Your only trying to separate you from contaminated particulates. Nuclear fall out, chemical fall out. A clean room where you can decontaminate, etc.

    Scored this lot of tools tonight for $150

    Few good heavy duty chains in the bucket and 2 craftsman tool bags huge assortment some good brand name stuff and quality vintage stuff.
    My neighbors Dad past a few years ago and he came over to ask me if I wanted to look at some tools

    Most of this stuff was in boxes didn't even get to look and he said $100 I told him that was to low and gave him $150 and if I sell off something I don't want or need that I would give him the money cause I didn't want to profit from it.
