We are about to start our third year of using our food storage for 3 months. That means… no grocery shopping! YEAH!
While this may sound crazy, it makes sound sense. First, it allows us to rotate what we’ve stored. Second, it allows us to figure out what we might not need. Third, it allows us to figure out what we items we should store more of. It also means less driving during the winter time.
While I felt like a squirrel storing nuts for the winter, Elizabethe asked me to pick up a few items at the store. There is no way they are going to last for 3 months, but at least we can ease into our three month experiment.
A good website for being prepared in all aspects of life is Provident Living. I don’t consider us “preppers” by any means. I do want to be self-reliant – temporally, mentally and spiritually.
Windows 10 has given me grief again. For a while, it had been running fine on my laptop. (If you recall, I had to completely remove it from my desktop. I had to re-format my desktop’s hard drive because Windows 10 just would not work on it.)
This time it appeared to be a fight between Windows 10 and my virus software. Windows 10 said I didn’t have any virus software, and the virus software said it needed to do an update. Long story short, it appears Windows 10 did something to DHCP’s service and DHCP had to be repaired before it would allow the virus software to update.
Ninty-seven (97) updates later, Windows 10 appeared to be working until I attempted to connect using WiFi. Yup… DHCP services on the the WiFi connection weren’t working either. After repairing that, I took my laptop home and tried it and it seems to be working now.
After all of this, Microsoft sends me a survey asking about my Windows 10 Experience. They asked me to rate it. I gave it a “1”. They asked what they could do to improve the score. I answered, “Keep Windows 7.”
