My local grocery stores had awesome sales this week and today I doubled my meager supply of canned meats/entrees from 2 months to probably closer to 4 now. They had a great pantry sale, one dollar a can for Progresso soups, Campbells soup, Armour chili, Bumble Bee albacore tuna, canned chicken, canned ham, El Paso refried beans etc... plus 98 cents per pound for Tyson chicken breasts! And I had about $8 in Progresso, Campbells, and El Paso coupons so that made it an even better deal.
Then I went to the feed store and bought 100 lbs of wheat, 50 lbs of whole corn, chicken feed and 2 packs of chicken antibiotics (water soluble antibiotics for livestock won't be available after the new year, so buy them now!). Then bought 4 bags of dog food.
I got worried when I realized my back tires were bulging because the trunk was so heavy, but we made it home in one piece and I feel so darn prepared!

Finished putting up the last antenna for this year.
This one is for my HF receiver in my shop, lost the other in an ice storm last winter.
All the long wires now float and will come down without breaking if iced up in bad weather.
Each one's elements is counter weighted to keep proper tension.
The wire is now fine stranded copper 10 gage.

ANNIE, I need to get some stuff from them, will short time from now.
I ordered 48 bottles of cheap vodka from the liquor store. Delivery Friday. Trade goods.
They are available from Pasternack, I use "N" connectors.
When there is any storm activity and when I remember all antennas are shunted direct to ground.
Two are disconnected by habit after use.
The AP8 and R6000 verticals are kept below the trees to reduce them being a target.
