Rewiring an old electric pump.
I'll bet my Solar System that it will work like NEW.

Of course, I do prepping every day. Bout ready to fire up Seal A Meal, after I make list of needs.
I was looking at the Patriot Supply and other sites that sell meals in bags. Up to $12 for one meal.
That is an insane markup, and I'm not that klazy.
I do use their ideas for creating my own versions of their PRICEY meals in bags.
Happy Friday!

I bought 50lb of wheat, and 50lb of barley. It cost me $22 and I'm pretty sure you can't grow, harvest, and ship 100lb of small grains for $22. So thank you taxpayer for subsidizing my activities! ;)

From a taxpayer :mrgreen: "You're welcome, but your bargain did nothing to put food on the farmer's table."
So, where did you buy it? Give a source, please. Thank you.

A project I'm working on uses about 2 ounces of Silicone clear marine type sealant. About a year ago, I'd had to buy a 10 oz size tube for caulking gun, and only used about 2 ounces on a job. So I divvied it up into four 2 ounce Seal A Meal bags & left in tool shed. I'd forgotten about it until I started to order some more. Those I sealed a year ago appears to be normal. Time will tell. Should be cured by tomorrow this time.
I also sealed up my Gorilla Glue, used it yesterday, still good after 2 years.

Ize wuz up very early this morning, with a l o n g ToDo List in front of my face, checked off a few ToDo's already today. It's only 0730 :lol: I'm incredibly optimistic!

I bought it at my local feed store.

I live in a port city on Lake Superior where a lot of grain gets railed in, and then loaded onto cargo ships. Every rail car full of wheat has to be sampled and tested, and these samples can't be returned to the main shipment due to some sort of regulation or other.

The local feed store receives these aggregated samples which it then repackages and sells on to the public as animal feed since it hasn't been graded and may contain bits of other things. At least I know this is the case with the wheat.

@Farside What you said first, does not align with your explanation.
In essence, you first said poor farmers, poor taxpayers, lucky me Cui Bono.
Explanation and words used gives an entirely different scenario. It can't be both ways.

I'm watching Silicone Sealant cure and in process of building a PV combiner box.
I'm the only one I know who has a large stock of 15A45V Diodes.

Today I harvested vermicompost and started planning the fall/winter garden. It will be time to start putting out fall transplants in July. I'm going with oats, garlic, onions, beets, brussel sprouts, cabbages, lettuces, and arugula for outdoor plantings. I'm reserving the greenhouse this year for overwintering peppers and growing fresh fodder for the chickens (clover, wheatgrass).

I'm busy.
I'm happy.
It's my busiest time of year, lasting until September, sometimes longer.
Carry on!
Prep on!

Sometime around August 2018, I uploaded here... a 2018 PDF regarding Executive Intelligence Review for President of the United States. The statements were, on history of Communism and related genocides, and today in USA the incredible rise in numbers of Social Democrats.

Colorado, in Denver just got their dose of reality on Communism.
Candi CdeBaca made her statements that she will usher in Communism, by force if necessary.
California already is known as CommieFornia.
NYC, well that goes without saying, NY Democrat Senator Nadler and his minions, and his "Have-Nots" who think they're getting money for enslavement reparations from their "white slavers" which IS a dam'd LIE.

Totalitarian Tippie Toe...???
But, I got a lot of nice things & chores done today.
How about you?
Ya'll have a nice, quiet, stressless weekend. I'm going scouting for............
