I stocked up on Store brand Tylenol and other OTC medications as well as any other items I regularly use that are made in China or have ingredients/parts made in China (Chinese factories/businesses are currently shut down due to the covid-19 Coronovirus). In addition, I'm adding more boxes of ie juices, rice milk, etc that can be stored at room temperature. This is the most serious I've felt about prepping since Y2K!
Y2K. Ah yes, was made fun of by family when I ramped things up bit they didn’t know what I knew. Also remembering working on gov and business projects in prep for this and boy oh boy, we would have been in some real pain IF measures had not been taken. I learnt a great deal about where we are as a nation then and have zero doubts about what and why I do what I do. So rock on, we learn so much about our lives, technology, farming... it’s great knowledge and so long as no one goes and lives underground in simple anticipation of things, we are on solid ground

Well, with rail blockades unlikely to resolve soon (things growing well beyond gas pipeline, and revendications cover the MMIV, and every wrongs of colonisation for the past 250+ yrs), flu causing Chinese manufacturing base to falter, uncertainty with the disease...

Did a rather large Costco run today, stocking up on a variety of non perishables and other products. That way, if products price go up as they need to be shipped by truck, if there are shortages, or if I need to isolate at home, we are somewhat set.

In different news...

Started a second batch of veggies from seeds and transplanted my tomatoes in large containers as they’ve much outgrown their peat pots already.

There is a word I had to go look up.
Give a man a gun, and he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he can rob the world.

It arrived, I will test it out tonight.

I should add since I see these come with 18650 cells. I know they will be craptacular cells, but for anyone local who wants good quality, fair priced 18650s (not fake). I know a local supplier who gets good cells Just PM me and I will send you his contact info. So good I even built a spare battery for my bike from his stock.
That plastic open ended tube is to help the battery fit in tighter, you likely figured that out but figured it’s worth mentioning because when I first opened it up, I was trying to figure out what the heck it was for. :oops:
And, what do you think of the 37.00 light?

When you’re French Canadian, like to use fancy words, and get to the point of thinking that said word is certainly an English one (without checking).

For some reasons, the English word “claim” certainly doesn’t sound as refined.

I would say its good. I plan to mount it on my bike for stealthy night riding. On second thought that does not sound wise. Stealthy is not what I want to be on public roads. I will use it for night time off road trails

Agree, good is perfect description. For 38 I view the package as awesome deal. I am sure there are equal deals but for me, this is the best I have found for this type of product/s

How long the electronics last I have no idea but if it’s as good as the machining, it should be good. Glad I was able to partially return the favor you have provided with your solar inputs

Emptied a store of turkey breasts, adding more frozen veggies, canned goods, another large bag of rice. Boy do we have rice! Probiotics, got another three months supply of meds so getting closer to a years supply now for all meds. Have a full years supply for two of the heart meds. But when you pay out of pocket, it’s expensive 900.00 in one day for three months supply hurts.
