  1. In the new wave nineteen-eighties, it might have well been the pioneer days for me.

    Although I was born in 1980, I had a very rural childhood. The propane man would come every 3 months and if we ran out before then, we couldn't cook at all. If I climbed on top of the propane tank and pretended it was a horse, I would get the beating of my life from any adult present. Same went if I pounded it with my hands to hear the cool liquidy echo. We pumped all our own water into a giant tank. We had to continually pump during droughts, because if the well ran dry, we would be out of...

  6. Homemade face masks

    You can help out by making these face masks at home and either using them when you go out to stop the spread, or donating them to medical professionals and those with low immune systems. In my house we bought 3 yards of fabric and 5 yards of elastic. We are making dozens of them. Face Mask Pattern - Free Sewing Patter • Craft Passion

  8. Analyzing my first Corona meltdown

    Yesterday, it's been approximately five and a half months since my last meltdown. Today, it's been zero days since my last meltdown. Several factors have piled up that eventually caused it - and I am a tad bit ashamed to admit that all of them stem from the current global situation. Since I started intensively researching autism, I have come to understand myself significantly better, to the point where I learned to identify, and in consequence, avoid situations or circumstances that could...
  9. Show Me Your Papers

    In a more dystopian mood, I was given 2 sets of letters today from my oncologist. They were instructions to the police to allow me to leave my home and be driven to the doctor. One is for my father's car, and one is for my wallet. I gave my dad his, and he surprised me by showing me a similar letter from my mother's work, giving her permission to leave the house to be driven to work. THIS IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Not some Soviet Bloc Country. My dad, when he saw my...

    How to can vegetables: Peel and slice veggies.

  14. Homemade Cheese

    How to make cheese in the crock pot: Heat up a gallon of milk in the crock pot. Once scalding, turn off heat. While still very hot, stir in 1/2 cup of vinegar. Put lid on and let milk cool for several hours, or overnight. Strain it through a cheesecloth lined colander. The curds are delicious, soft farmer cheese. I lightly salt mine to bring out the flavor. The clearish/ yellow liquid is whey, which can be used in any cooking recipe that calls for milk. I promise it will make it taste...
  15. Homemade meat from Gluten Flour

    How to make "vegetarian chicken meat" from gluten. It's called Seitan and is eaten quite often in Asia: It is very nourishing and filling. Good source of high protein. You will need actual gluten flour (sold at Win Co), where all the bran and starch have been removed, and all that is left is the gluten. There are ways to "wash" whole wheat flour to make gluten flour, but that's really complicated. Crush up 2 boullion cubes Mix it in with 1 cup of gluten flour Pour in 2 cups of water and...
