Today I bought 4 boxes of bullets and two bottles of powder just in case there becomes a shortage in the near future. I bought a dozen or more candles for light and cooking if needed. I also bought some more T=paper just because they don't have any big phone books handy anymore. I read putting a string in a can of Crisco will make a get you by flame for cooking and light. It said a can could provide fire 8 hours a day for over 40 days. I remember as a kid in summer park school we made Bunsen burners out of cardboard, wax, and a coffee can. I thought about buying a small generator but I figured there might not be much gas to buy for it. I have a generator but it only puts out around 90 volts so it's about worthless. I figure getting it fixed might cost as much as a new one so............ And again where will the gas for it come from? I don't know what I would do without TV and my PC. I should find a crank up charge types.
