Even if you dont store for emergencies and just to reduce trips to
the store, rotation is a good idea.
Yes, but when you have fuel reserves for a whole year, it gets more important (because fuel eventually goes bad). If you have boxed cereals for the week, it is less important to have a rotation policy because the expiration date is so far away in comparison with the time it takes you to eat the cereals away.
I used to have stock for about a month. Not so much prepping, but just so if i needed something non perishable i had it without driving out to the store.
Now its 6 months worth.

I find myself doing much more self-production these days. With current inflation here, it won't be long before certain basics become outright unaffordable.
I have nice stashes of the basics because it is not rare for my house to be cut off from the rest of the world due to the weather. It is good to know you can make it through, let's say, the winter. However, I have been expanding my hobby farming gradually into something capable of producing food for the year.
The problem is that it is yet another thing that takes a whole lot of time, which is scarce these days. I am solving a lot of the issues with the raw power of technology, but sustaining that technology may prove problematic if things go really down under.
Unfortunately i have limited space for farming, and being in Midwest, limited by weather too
Have to watch that here. If you build something to big they make you tear it down. They also ban 'farm animals' ( even when we were still a rural community, before the concrete mixers came in and destroyed everything that grows )
Man i wish i had moved out where i originally planned on and not here. im sort of stuck, too old to take on another mortgage.

In other news ... and I had a hard time deciding where to post this ...
Over in India they are now charging Bill Hitler Gates over vaccine-related deaths.
Billionaire Bill Gates has been issued with a notice from the Bombay High Court over a case that alleges the Microsoft co-founder is responsible for deaths related to COVID-19 vaccines.
It's about time someone held this dude responsible. According to the article:
The petitioner, Dilip Lunawat, is seeking Rs 1,000 crore ($125,451,200) compensation after his daughter, Dr. Snehal Lunawat, died after receiving the Covishield vaccine.
Yes, it's his fault. Why? Among other reasons, according to the article:
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also helped the Indian pharmaceutical company rush the vaccine into production.
Lunwat says his daughter was compelled to take the anti-Covid vaccine at her college in Nashik on January 28 last year
I agree, of course. Bill Gates should be extradited to India, convicted, sentenced, and executed for his many crimes against humanity.
While travelling across the US with my Nephew from Prague, we both ended up catching Covid.
We're of similar health, habits, lifestyle, age and weight.
I've been jabbed and boosted, then boosted twice more.
He has never had the jab.
We holed up in Sacramento and isolated. I went on Paxlovid, he did not.
We both smoked, and actually drank, while sick.
The symptoms and course of the illness was nearly identical for both of us, and was actually not as bad as a moderate cold.
bleh. f-ed up my foot again. another 2 weeks of barely being able to walk and constant pain.
[TMI] Cleaning out for my very first preventative colonoscopy tomorrow.
I wonder if they'll let me take home a copy of the video.
I had one at 50. My doctor gave me something that i only had to take a couple of hours before. Not an all nigher of misery.
Entire thing went well, other than after i woke up, was still blinking awake and getting my bearings since i was in a different room " here drink this " "im not ready.." "drink it now" so i did, and threw up on her.
In other news, 48 year old clumsy jerk managed to slip off a curb on Sunday while carrying 2 laundry baskets and down he went. Damage: 1 laundry basket, 2 skinned knees, and an ankle tweaked up good. Fortunately I can just work from home and keep the thing elevated. Better today but probably another 2 weeks before I can do anything substantial on it.
Yes the procedure is trivial. You lay down, they put you to sleep, you wake up later and its done.
Last 2 times i fell, broke a rib on one latest, and eradicated a radius bone on previous ( both due to dogs ). I try to avoid falling now :)
What I *don't* know is how long they sit there waiting for you to wake up.
But I can proudly tell everyone here that I have an absolutely perfect :colon: . Not a single polyp to be found anywhere, so I don't have to go back for another 10 years.
Its good they did not find anything.
I guess my prep was not normal, since it was just a 2 hour thing just before i went. I had heard stories, but doc: " we do it a bit different, it wont be as bad"
I have been put out more than once for things, and ya, its "a we are going to st...." Then you wake up in another room. Its really disorienting, even tho you are expecting it.
yay another eye infection, so heavy duty antibiotics, hoping to avoid surgery this time. ( related to the meibomian glands ). next day.. flu.. in bed 3 days now..
I hate specialists and tests. f-them. its a racket. one that i will no longer participate in.
Did anyone notice that the "pandemic" was officially declared over by Clowngress a couple of weeks ago?
I wonder if anyone cared...

It's over everwhere except my doctor's office, apparently. Still can't go in there without a mask. It's still going round - 2 friends caught it in the last week - but nobody seems to really give a hoot anymore. Which is fine with me. I'm still doing my best to avoid in-person interactions, not because of the panedemic, but because people are just so damn irritating.
its just modern flu..
