11 month test – canned crackers

canning crackers, canning food, canning, food storage, survival, preparedness

My wife made some no-bean chili the other night. Stuff is fantastic but I must have saltine crackers to go with it. She said we were out……EXCEPT those ones in the jars sitting in the cabinet.

She was referring to several jars of crackers that I had canned back in November of 2013. Would they still be crisp and taste good after 9 month? My wife said I was insane for eating crackers that old.

Top doc: ‘Several people were exposed,’ more will be infected by Dallas Ebola case

video

As more information is brought froward regarding the person and their travels who has been diagnosed in Dallas, Texas it is becoming more concerning. It appears that this person visited the hospital at least once and was provided some antibiotics and sent home. Let’s hope that is where it ends but it does not look good. Time to panic? No – but as always awareness is valuable as well as preparations.

VIDEO: Common Core education – ridiculous

Unless you live in a vacuum you probably have hard of “Common Core” – a new way of teaching math. I did not fully understand it until some time ago when I saw a demonstration on the “new and improved” method.

Tensions ease in Nevada

bundyranch

 

It appears that the standoff in Nevada over cattle grazing, endangered tortoises, and owed grazing fees is over – at least for now. The Bureau of Land Management withdrew it agents and efforts to round up cattle due to a “serious concern” over the safety of its employees, and the public.

I am hoping that the entire matter is the last we will hear of it and a peaceful resolution can be found.
