    Its either band aids or those sticky plaster on rolls, where you placed over bandages or wound gauze to hold them there...

    At last! I converted my diesel generator to propane. This way I can stock propane tanks and I'll be ready for any power loss.

    I paid my taxes this week.

    That way I get to live for another year as a free man, sort of.

    Does that count?
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    I ordered 5000 rounds of .22 ammo because I'm tired of wasting time and gas looking for it on the shelves! I think I have finally got my quota now!

    Since it's been a year since anyone posted in this thread. I'm going to work a little necromancy magic.

    BAM! IT LIVES AGAIN!

    Well I ordered some supplies from China. Some paracord, 2 paracord bracelets, 2 whistles for auditory signals.

    Also I filled up my jerry cans with gas to prepare for Tropical Storm Colin.

    Who names these blasted storms? I'm sorry but "Colin" does not instill fear. It's no wonder folks don't evacuate.

    "This is Rainy Weathers with the Weather Channel. Tropical storm FooFoo...."

    Seriously, if they want folks to be concerned and make preparations they should name them something like Killer, Mauler or even Kick Your Butt in a Heartbeat. But Colin?

    Maybe they meant colon. That might be appropriate for a storm.
