Ok, and finally a little pandemic reminder, thank goodness all the hype is over, and hopefully the swine flu fades away and we don't hear much about it again, but the concern is, viruses are always changing, and it's possible that this one, (or any other flu strain going around actually?) could mutate and become something more serious and deadly. It could happen, this fall, or years in the future, or never at all. The best preparations besides a good supply of food etc, would be to make sure you have a steady supply of not expired otc pain relievers, kleenex, hand sanitizer, disposable gloves, and possibly medical masks. If someone in your family somehow contracted a potentially deadly virus, you would certainly want to be prepared to keep them separate from everyone, and still care for them without putting yourself or the rest of your family in danger. So that's my latest thoughts! Sorry for such a long post but it's pretty over due!
**Check back next week, I'm planning on laying out a Food Storage inventory system! Hopefully to be put in place around here this week- cross your fingers for me! I realized we've been using up a lot of our food stash and it's time to start keeping track of what we have and what we need more of.
