Strawberry Hellcat: Gair I gall, ffon I’r anghall Premium

Unapologetic Anti-War redhead who tried to retire, but married a farmer instead. Then we decided to both go back to college - what WERE we thinking? Organic gardener, cattle rancher, chicken wrangler, and wrench-turner. Bibliophile, history buff, hunter of sweet potato leaf-eating deer vermin, and practitioner of the "distaff" arts. Trying to reconcile a green lifestyle with a lead foot. Researching ancient Eastern European textiles of the Chalcolithic to Iron Age, perpetually tweaking a science fiction novel and local version of a regional RPG, and pushing my practical skills and my agenda of multi-cultural understanding on my county "WI" group. I may save you from the zombie apocalypse - but don't push your luck...

    I like the term “butler” that Claire Luvcat uses…and I might be obsessed with Lulu.

    MAGAts favor Tannerite – readily available in many hardware shops (and perhaps even Wal-Mart in states like Oklahoma). They just need to bite really hard for the cure to work. A bat upside the head probably works equally well.

    “Facetime Funerals” wow. Not much of a step beyond mourners restricted to their cars – which is already happening.

    Hey Cheeto, everyone knows the real cure is the Diet Coke you like – combined with Mentos. We recommend filling your mouth with both at the same time.

    Three of our households provide food for friends and extended family too. At our home, we have four gardens totalling around an acre – spring tilling is done with field equipment and an orchard (plus strawberries in the flowerbeds!). We’ve got chickens and cattle. Storage is (for two people) two freezers, two refrigerators, underground cold storage for veggies, and a walk-in larder with shelf-stable dry and canned goods both commercial and home-canned. We hunt deer and do our own processing – and if necessary, will do it out of season. I’ve got peppers and eggplants ready to set out, and will also be starting more seeds on my grow table this weekend.

    Bernie gets it. By Sunday at 4:59 pm (when the request came through on my phone) we had raised more than 2 million and were trying to make it 3 million by midnight.

    I’d recommend buying your food in its least-prepared form as well. It’s far less expensive, and most of it is shelf-stable. Follow the guidelines currently running in the comic “Poorcraft” on GoComics.

    Cheeto would never let either one play his bigly role. He’d insist on being in front of the cameras himself. Blecch!

    Motivemagus just posted this on Chris Britt’s page. Read it at your own peril – it’s terrifying, but crucial.
