I would like to welcome my newest follower Mad Medic. Welcome and thanks for joining, I am really grateful you liked my musings enough to stay in touch. I hope the rest of my readers check him out. He has a blog about guns, politics, and his beloved Minnesota Vikings. Ah well, too bad about that last part, but I feel your pain. Just look at the Tennessee Titans and the UT Vols. Not much to cheer about around here either. HAHA! His blog is MadMedic Freedom is just another word

Happy New Year!

Here’s hoping the new year finds you safe, healthy, and happy!

Light Sticks

31 Dec

Light Sticks are a handy item to have around if the lights go out. I keep a couple in my pickup, a couple in Sweet Thing’s vehicle, and some around the house. They will glow for 8-12 hours, won’t catch fire, don’t get hot, and only cost a couple of bucks! One of the few negatives is a shelf life of  3 years so you have to rotate them out. When they get old, give them to the kids to play with!

Flashlight

30 Dec

How many of you have a flashlight handy for when the lights go out? Do you know where it is? Are you sure? Are the batteries any good? I always check on my emergency supplies around the first of the year, that is why so many of these posts are related to preparedness and emergency planning.

I always want to have plenty of flashlights and lanterns available, not only in the house but also in the vehicles and in the barn. I needed to replace the batteries in some of the lights, but this style of lantern can be purchased for $4.00 at most places. That is less than what a replacement battery costs, so I just buy the whole set and put the old lantern in storage. This is an Eveready lantern, the lantern is Made In The USA! ( the battery is made in China ) Got light?
