Re: Leadership, group dynamics in a post shtf world

Hey, I have The Postman too, and Waterworld, they are among my favourites. I was thinking that knowing Robert's Rules of Order by heart would be handy. At our condo we have one fellow that when the meetings start to degrade he is the one who, by quoting Robert's Rules of Order, helps keep the meetin...

Re: Pension are disappearing...

Yeah, me too. Fortunately I really like my job, and as long as I stay in decent physical shape I'm sure they'll keep me. I work in the housekeeping and maintenance dept. of a small "hotel". I am trying to stay out of room cleaning, but I do lots of other physical stuff: clean the chandelie...

If the world as we know it were to collapse due to a solar flare, asteroid strike, total and complete economic collapse how would the survivors organize themselves and rebuild.

Re: Do you have a meeting place if separated?

When I became separated we never met again. My ex used to complain about all the money I spent on beer, so I quit buying it. Then, one day I came home and found a receipt on the table for $60.00 worth of make-up. When I asked her why I couldn't buy beer but she could spend so much on make-up, she r...

I live in a one bedroom condo in the city, and I have 38 gallons of water, 30 gallons in ocean spray gallon jugs and 8 gallons in 2 litre pop bottles . Am just about ready to wash and fill another ocean spray bottle. I know some preppers say not to use juice bottles, but I think it's better to use w...
