Ebola And You

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

-Luke 21:11


I don't know about you but I am really upset and scared(even tho God tells me in the Bible that he has my back) for our country which includes our families. This disease is DEADLY! Our officials who we have voted in to PROTECT us are treating this DEADLY disease like it is the common cold! I realize that in past times our flu killed 100's of 1000's of people across this vast country. Just go to your local cemetery and you can see for yourselves. But, yes I say BUT we are in times that are way more advanced in technology, science and preparation for illnesses and diseases today. We may not have the cure for cancer which kills 1000's everyday.  This disease is so much different than that of cancer or the common/not so common flu or the common cold! 
Here is my question(s):
If one(attending nurse or aid worker) is exposed to a patient who is confirmed of Ebola, how can one believe that they did not somehow get fluids on themselves? Violent vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, saliva, blood and urine....not one little droplet got on your shoes or clothes even when taking precautionary measures? If you were so careful in what you wore, in this case should be covered in a full body rubber suit in my opinion, and did all the precautinary measures to the tea then how in the H E double hockey sticks did you contract the virus? Are they not telling us that it can be transmitted by airborne means? I don't think that anybody who was told of the seriousness of this disease wouldn't do everything possible to avoid this disease. I know I would if I had to take on this task.
Here is another thought:
So Duncan lived in an apartment complex....Violent vomiting supposedly just outside on the grass or sidewalk.....How many walked through that even after whoever cleaned it up? What dog licked it up or cat had a snack then went home to their masters giving them a kiss on the face or hands etc? You see what I am saying? Who cleaned out his apartment? or cleaned it up? Are they going to dispose of his apartment or just paint over everything and let someone else move in? They say that this disease isn't even destroyed at 600 degrees!!! Louisiana won't let them bring his incinerated belongings to the landfill because they are afraid this disease will spread and infect the ground it is buried in.
Why have they not quarantined the apartment complex? Why have they not quarantined the hospital, staff, patients that were inadvertently exposed. With two nurses now positive for Ebola.

Now onto this nurse who should have been quarantined. She has not only exposed more patients but she has exposed a 132 people plus on the airline plus the numerous people she came into contact with boarding and unloading!!! She said herself before they removed her page off of FB that she was not feeling well on Monday(As soon as someone exhibits the symptoms, that person is considered contagious.) before she boarded the plane on Tuesday (Reported her symptoms). I feel for her family! But, yes I said But, if I would think that somebody in that family who was going to receive her would have maybe been scared enough to say STAY THE HECK HOME!!! Postpone your wedding!!! You may be infected and we don't want the chance of having it here!!!
Ps..Late breaking news she apparently called the CDC reporting a 99+ fever but because she didn't fall into the 100+ fever chart she was told to proceed onto the plane!!! OMG!!!

Friends I guess what I am trying to say is USE what God gave you. Think before you do anything! Act as if it was your last day because this is gonna kill us if we don't learn about it and use our dang heads to make it through. They don't have a vaccine for it, yet. They are in the works, there are human trials going on right now for this vaccine. They are doing drug trials now too. 

If you get a chance....What I mean is you better TAKE the time to read this site. Explore around a bit it may be what saves your life when this is in your face or in your body!!!!
http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs103/en/ 


"How many other Americans have been infected?
Five American aid workers – three physicians, a nurse and a cameraman hired by NBC News - were infected while working in West Africa.

Where have those patients been treated?
There are four special isolation units in the United States. One is at Emory University in Atlanta, where two people – a doctor and a nurse – were treated before being released in late August. Two other Americans have been treated at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha and the National Institutes of Health."- taken from this article-http://www.cleveland.com/healthfit/index.ssf/2014/10/ebola_q_a_what_you_should_know_now_that_cleveland_is_linked_to_deadly_virus.html

Here is another very important question you should be considering::

When this virus hits your area, not a matter of how but when, are you going to self quarantine your family? Are you prepared for this type of situation? 
WHO(link above) says that an area is free of the disease when 42 days goes by with out a new case and last confirmed case is done or dead. Some of these places that are free which are few at this time....had gone through 6 mos of this outbreak.....Can you or your family survive for 6-7 mos in a self quarantine?

Food A Plenty


 http://www5.bountifulbaskets.org/
 https://www.communityhelpingscoop.com/
I have personally participated in the bountiful baskets coop when I lived in Montana. It was great! For $15 I got a basketful of fruits and veggies much like that one you see in the picture. Twice a month I could participate in this program. Now I have plenty from my garden although I would enjoy the fruit. I now just donate to the cause to feed others who may need it. This is a great way to donate...... there are many states who participate in this program. If interested go to the link above....

The other link is for the St.Louis and surrounding areas so I have participated in it for our area. Cost is about $25 for a basketful too! 

I love feeding people and found this is a great way to do that.....
Check it out!!!

If neither of these work for you ....check out places close to you one never knows until they look!

Brown Bomber

Well since ya asked ....yes it is still raining! I am not complaining the ground was thirsty. We did get a bunch though. We had some buckets in the back of the buggy and I believe we had 4+ inches of rain in them. Did I mention it is still raining! 
The trees have really taken on some new colors. We noticed even the oaks are changing...winter is not far off.








*********************************************************************************
Now to the Brown Bomber
Here she is in all her glory...
We loaded her up with all the garbage to take to the transit center. Now on this load there is old furniture, bbq, can full of old asphalt shingles (been layin on its side for months) and burn barrels. And off we went.....Now this truck is so noisy that you really can't have a conversation in it..should probably be wearing hearing protection but we don't. We get there just in the nick of time....lunch break was fast approaching...we had to shut the gate behind us! Paid our $18 to unload, started to unload, taking the can with the shingles in it....out pops a snake!! At first glance looked like a rattler but upon closer inspection it may have been a rat snake ended up being a dead snake. Crossed the street unloaded some other recyclables, realized we left the wooden tail gate at the transit site. Had to "break" back in to retrieve it.
I needed to stop off at the market so off we went in that direction. Looking over at Mtn Man I could see that he was a bit worried about something in the steering. It made some funny noises and crunching when he turned. Of course with my rather opinionated self I state the obvious, something is wrong! I got the look.....you know the one that says "No duh sherlock". From there on out I couldn't help but make noises myself...just can't help it!! He stayed with BB while I went into the market, few minutes went by and off to CarQuest we went to buy connector hoses for his tractor so he can use the grapple at the mill. $160 and 15 mins later we were out of there. Then we had to head to the grain store....now mind ya the noises are getting worse and the steering wheel has a lot of movement "play" in it that is not normal andddddd now when you turn the wheel it is honking!!!! Yes I said "HONKING". Oh my gosh, I was sliding down in my seat from embarrassment. We both broke out in laughter...Mtn Man had himself a great belly laugh over that one...good thing we were on a straight away. I put my seatbelt on, which as most everybody knows I hate those things, and were almost to the grain store announcing ourselves for the 1/4 mile in....yes you guessed it intermittent honking. Got the rest of the supplies and prayed that we would make it home in one piece. The steering wheel is getting worse as the miles pass.....as we approach our road our brown bomber announces we are home. We slide up the mile drive in one piece! She is parked until further notice!!!! I am guessing, now just guessing, that the steering column and components will need further work to run like a top! Thank goodness we don't have to depend on her to get us where we need to go.......

How did your day go?

Garden Keeps Giving

We are amazed at this garden! We thank God for it everyday......
Today I went out to the sopping wet garden with Mtn Man's boots on...yes, a pic in of itself, thank goodness he didn't get that one....and picked to my little hearts content in between rain showers.
We just heard the Tornado Watch Warning come over our two way radios so we are in for a day of it.
Here are some pics from the garden may it bring you sunshine! 
Turnips, Green Beans, Jalapenos, Broccoli, Tomatoes and Tomatillos

Peppers....



From left to right: Turnips, Green Beans, Beets and last row is half and half Carrots, Kohlrabi

Tomatoes are still trying....
Be Joyful and don't let anybody take that from ya! 

 Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them;
-Jeremiah 29:5

Goat Pen Updates

They are so much happier!!!
That makes four of us....
We got up this morning, hopped into the hot tub and then had a bite to eat. Headed off to work the goat pen. I put the boards from the mill up on the shed(have to have more to finish) and Mtn Man worked on getting the posts in the ground. After I had the boards up went over to help him finish up on his end. Then we added a couple tarps to the roof just temporary. We have tin over at his folks to add to the roof and again more boards are needed. Need to get the mill going for that...
All the while it rained on us but we were not gonna let that stop us! I turned on the boombox(yes I am showing my age) with Joyce Meyer blaring to keep us motivated. We had a great time! And we always work well together... WE ROCK!!!

will keep ya posted!

Change


 I am having a JM day! What I mean is that sometimes God needs to straighten me out through Joyce. She has a way that I can receive what he is trying to tell me....I will listen to her all day. No matter what I am doing today, building the goat shelter. No matter the message it helps me to change my attitude and help me grow to be a better person. To gain more knowledge. No matter how many times I hear the same message I will learn something new.....
Do you ever have a day like that where you need to hear God all day long to help you through? I don't mean praying all day talking with him personally. I mean through another, even like a friend you spend with all day so you can make it through. God works in wondrous ways with us! Are you listening?

Rainy Day

I honestly, cannot tell you how much rain we have had overnight. It is still raining. Not complaining in the least cuz this will give me opportunity to catch up on some much needed reading. Maybe I will read while on the eliptical...hmmm. 
While browsing around I found this link interesting. http://www.offthegridnews.com/2010/08/02/how-to-create-a-food-storage-supply-for-you-and-your-spouse-for-as-little-as-5-per-week/

Then I read our local newspaper and what did I see a SALE!!! Oh my goodness! I love the buy one get one free deals!!
So off we went to town.....
Cream Soups 10/$10 bucks I thought was a good deal but I looked to my right and the off brand which is probably the same dang soup anyway was .31 cents cheaper so I bought them instead. Yellow label versus read label well who cares saving money is my game. Then coffee they had a buy one (off brand) get one free deal...well in this house we do like our coffee and I have to tell ya I come from country that knows their coffees but when it comes to saving money I am not gonna let my pride get in the way......$6.99 coffee. Had to get a "raincheck" (get it, it's raining, LOL) for the coffee. Also had to get a raincheck  on the flaked potatoes Idaho potatoes in a box 10/$10 a deal I think. 
I like to take advantage of these kinds of deals...putting stuff back for those cold winter days and long winters. Spent about $130-$140 a savings we figure of $50-60 bucks on this run.....

 We went by the grain store for more feed for chickens and some new feed for the goats...need something to help warm them up with the cold nights approaching. Met some other goat owners so maybe I can get mine some pals and maybe a new lover...woo woo!
Speaking of goats.....the lumber has been cut for the sides of the building and the fencing and gate have been bought to finish the pen. If it wasn't pouring today we would be out gettin er dun! Will keep ya updated...

The "girls"(chickies) love their new beds...it took them a bit to get used to. Don't know if you know this about chickens but they do not appreciate change, not one little bit. They are all about routine no wavering! I added the boxes and a piece of plywood in there hen house and they almost didn't go to bed the other night. Had to go out and sweet talk them a bit to go in. You see I took out one of the roosting poles too. I didn't see the need to have it in there for just one hen. They all seemed to have figured it out but it was quite comical to watch them push each other off the other two poles fighting for position. They have also figured out what those boxes are for.....they have left eggs in there for me now. Hopefully the others will figure it out and quite leaving them on the floor......
I did buy some pine pellets today. I love those things....you put the whole bag in and they scatter them. When the pellets get wet, they swell and dry. Looks like sawdust when they are done. Then when I clean it out it breaks down even more on the outside which they use for their dust bathes. It really is kind of cool!

Well we had plans for the weekend but if the rain sticks in looks like we will be doing something else.....Have a great weekend everybody!!

Weekend Updates In Pics






The girls are now starting to lay...this is the first of two

Mtn Man cleared out brush to find the property line so we can put up the fence....the orange markers here are to mark for the shed holes

Preparing for a solid 8x8 goat shed



Dug Sweet Potatoes before the rains hit about 40 lbs

My first year growing these....

Biggest of the bunch

Our total harvest from yesterday
We got all but two of the horses moved. Had a bit of trouble with Einstein the mule. If you remember he has had a rough background and is still working on getting used to us. We put him and Hank up in the back pasture at the Folks so maybe he will settle down a bit. Get used to humans again. We shall see......
Mtn Man and his dad went down the fence line at his place fixing what needed to be fixed. Didn't take to long....We had a nice lunch before they started.......Thanks to my MIL...it was yummy!
Then we sat at the bonfire for awhile.....
Mtn Man helped Cuz Dave get started on his Capote. It is this fabulous silvery green with a heavy black stripe on it. Think it is gonna be beautiful when they get it completed.
I really haven't done to much other than writing writing writing......editing editing editing.....it seems to never end!! This book is really an emotional roller coaster so sometimes it is really difficult to write..... lots of little breaks in between. Sometimes I wish I had a ghostwriter to do all the technical stuff so I can just speak my story. I tell it better than I can write it.....but I keep pressing on!
It poured last night through the night....we got a good soaker....not sure how much but it is wet everywhere out there...
Well have a great week everybody....
