Scything…..Oh, mind the rocks…..we live in a rocky place, scything not an option. (after many years of picking them, we have piles of stones, but they do grow out of the ground. I never thought that rocks were a renewable resource! Sheep would work, but for wolves. High fencing against deer (not many, but sufficient that they will destroy garden and fruit trees.)
Getting a couple of pigs they can stay inside a high fence.
Always something, but if it’s perfect, we can’t afford it.

@ Michael Reid “I also made bread this morning and it tasted delicious. I don’t know what I could grow to replace it if/when access to flour disappears.”
Dried garbonzo beans (chick peas) or actually any legume can be ground into flour for making bread. Bread can be made from potatoes too. Buckwheat can be grown where wheat cannot. we’ve done these and all will work. Wheat is nice, and makes the best bread, but in a pinch…..
” So what “crisis” do we get after the Ukraine?
The grocery store shelves being bare, more likely than not.”
Just returned from our local grocery store. Now shopping for food will give you a heart attack.
Butter $16 per 450gm (just under a pound)
Organic butter $26 per 450 gm ! ! ! !
Shelves not bare, but wallet is now bare

Hey Bosco…..how’s the book coming along?
RT.com still available on Proton VPN via Japan. Seems slow, but connects.
Raul: Whew. Thanks. It was getting a bit much when there is so much of great importance going on.
Bandwidth is limited (mine, anyway)

@ Bosco & DBS
Sure glad to see you guys coming around.
If you recall, I said that here on February 12 and got dissed for it.
Love you both.
And Bosc…..when you publish that novel, let us know. I want to buy and read it.
There was coordinated smear campaign levied against all dissenting voices
@bosco & DBS
Jebus F. Christo There are more important things to use this space for than a personal pissing contest. How ’bout you guys exchange emails and have it out in private?
Have a nice day
Did not know about rumours of a bank run in Canada until reading of that just now on TAE.
Earlier this morning, I paid off all my outstanding balances and emptied my acct. because of the Emergencies Act.
BTW, have been hearing of a General Strike in the U.S. and Canada to begin on 21 February and continue for a week.
No laws in staying home……yet.
I think you mistake me, at least in part.
I am saying, go home, take a vacation, along with all of of us who are in the same camp. If the wheels do not roll, the system will collapse. Same effect as if the bridges and border crossings are blocked. It would not take long.
I am not vaxxed, won’t be, and have done my share of killing.
I’m seeing calls for the use of force from both sides of this. We should not go there. I speak from my experience. I complied and went to war against people I did not even know, and for a purpose that was supported by lies. In the end, nobody wins, Innocents die.
Actually, at this point, maybe the truckers should all go home and stay there, along with all the other truckers and the hundreds of thousands of citizens that support this Freedom movement. Go home, stay home.
No law against staying home…….after all, the governments have been asking us to do this for the last 2 years. Give ’em what they want.
It’s called a General Strike.
Do not cooperate.
Do not comply.
Follow the Tao

You will need gas.
We’re on a small island out at the edge.
Been operating this way for years.
Biggest problem is fuel, and you can’t store gasoline for very long.
We got snow.
Merry Christmas to all……..
Well, crap. Just got an email from a very good friend. Pulmonary embolism caused by deep vein thrombosis. This guy is in his early 60’s and was in excellent health. Organic farmer, hiker, active and strong man. Double vaxxed………..beginning to sound familiar.
@ Oxy your post 91524: Have to have a Fbook acct to see it.

@zero…..your link http://www.bccdc.ca/Health-Info-Site/Documents/COVID_sitrep/Week_39_2021_BC_COVID-19_Situation_Report.pdf
does not seem to work. Wonder if they have removed it already. Here in B.C. the gov’t seems to be be providing little info. We are “Bonnie Henryed” and bludgeoned with B.S.
Simple, easily available, inexpensive, works.
Everybody gets a kit.
Why not here?

I see that British Columbia has initiated a vaccine passport (they call it a vaccine card)
And today, it’s “Masks back on”
Get it before it disappears…….BBC now is questioning……Is catching Covid better than vaccine?
wonder how ling it will take for that to be buried?
@John Day…….recognising the danger and getting away, but there seems to be no away now.
NZ, AUS Canada are all going in the same direction. Russia? but they don’t want us (rightfully so) and who knows what will happen there after the current gov’t goes.
It’s on everybody’s lips.

RE the “prove you’re not a bot” issue as in comment 80971.

Feet firmly planted, though mountain can fly.
Lots of hard work daily with my beautiful wife in the garden, with the bees, cutting firewood, digging potatoes and hanging the deer in autumn.

On another subject: Just spoke with friends in the area of the Lytton Canada fire that destroyed the village and burned out some of the surrounding areas: All communications in the area were lost within 8 minutes of the onset of the emergency. They are off-grid with an independent water supply and a significant stock of fuel and emergency supplies. People showed up asking for help, fuel, food. All freely given. My friends were astonished at how quickly their stock of supplies were depleted. That’s in a small community where everybody pretty much knows each other. Only a few had made any emergency preps and most of those had no opportunity to do anything other than escape with their lives. A city full of strangers would not have fared so well.

At least they sent a letter confirming the confiscation
Most of my friends have gotten “the jab” None are willing to do the magnet test.
If one has no rare earth magnets, a test with a compass might suffice.
The compass needle should deflect if there was sufficient ferrous metal to make a magnet stick to flesh.
Doesn’t everybody have some kind of compass lying around?
I am going to try that on some unsuspecting people that are “vaxxed”
