Re: Watch

I have 2 non-electric time pieces.
One is an old pocket watch, a Waltham 7 jewel (would have been an everyday watch for an average joe)...still works well so long as it is kept upright like it would be if kept in a vest pocket.
The other is an old mantle clock...works well and has the hourly chime.

Re: Pandemic

Same thing here in Quebec, over 400 cases per day for almost a week now. Second wave begins now.(actually about a week ago) Quebec is putting restrictions on a region by region basis instead of closing down the whole province. We adopted a color coding system, green, yellow, orange, and red. Pretty ...

Re: What Did You Prep This Week

Honestly I've lost track of everything in the past few weeks as to what I did when.
Basically putting up food either canning or dehydrating mostly.
It's been a combination of garden pickings and taking advantage of sales at the local stores.

Re: Mobile Communication

Download CHIRP, it has a MAC OS version. As for setting up the cable on Apple, I have no idea.
You can use the CD as a coaster.

Re: Pressure canners

Water bath canning is mainly used for pickles, jams, jellies and tomatoes in most forms. Pressure canning is for veggies, soups, etc. For info on the canning, a good book is Bernardin Complete Book of Home Preserving. It has everything in there. It is $27.26 on amazon. I will have that book here by...

Re: Mobile Communication

don't forget about murs a better choice for personal communications than the busy gmrs in my humble opinion There are no frequencies for MURS in Canada and no plans for it either. Some of the frequencies used for MURS in the US are reserved for other things here, such as law enforcement and other e...

Potatoes are abou...

Re: Is It Over Yet?

I suspect the second wave here in Quebec to be more of a ripple. People are taking things seriously and wearing masks and using hand sanitizer like crazy. Remember, most of our cases were in long term care homes...a clusterf*** to be sure, but the general public was largely unaffected. That being sa...
