Knife Sharpener-Following the Right Sharpening Process

Just with any other cutting and slicing tools, the blades of a knife can become dull over time. Too much dullness can render this tool next to useless. To bring back the sharpness of this tool, a knife sharpener is used. While sharpening is usually thought of as a one-step process of just grinding the blades against a hard rough surface, careless sharpening can lead to damage. Damage is highly undesirable especially if the knife is an expensive make.

Okay, now what did I do to prep this week…

Well, folks, that’s it for me this week… how about you… what did you do to prep this week?

What did you do to prep this week?

Well, folks here we are another week of prepping and another week closer to the collapse that will end life as we know it. It’s coming, and guess what… it does not matter who is setting in the White House. We are hanging by a thread and and that thread is about to break.

So many people stopped prepping after Trump got elected, so many in fact that even I was shocked at the downturn in the number of active preppers just days after the election results were announced.

Why so many people would put all their faith in one man to protect and provide for them is beyond me, but then I guess many people refer to be lead and not to take responsibility for their own safety and that of their family, preferring instead to hand over that responsibility to someone else.

But, now after Trumps first 100 days in office I’m beginning to see an uptick in visits to the site, and emails coming in from folks letting me know that they had become complacent and stopped prepping after Trumps election. However, they now see that that was a mistake and that they now see that Trump isn’t going to change anything, and will most likely be the cause of the crash coming sooner that expected.

Agree or disagree with that statement it doesn’t really matter, what matters is that they have seen that it’s pretty much business as usual in DC and that they are once again working towards their own safety and survival and not putting their faith in the federal government or Trump to protect and provide for them.

If you stopped prepping after Trump was elected but now have started back I’d love to hear from you – please post your story in the comments below…

Well folks as expected we made it through 4/20 without any related deaths or violence… while I don’t smoke the herb I feel that it has it’s uses and is much safer and more effective than most everything that the medical doctors push on their patients.

According to business insider’s research there are 23 Health Benefits Of Marijuana – it’s sad when the government bans and regulates a plant that has so many benefits with few negatives, yet you can find a liquor store on nearly every corner…

Even more puzzling is that according to CDC reports:

Excessive alcohol use led to approximately 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost (YPLL) each year in the United States from 2006 – 2010, shortening the lives of those who died by an average of 30 years.

This isn’t counting deaths by alcohol related accidents like car crashes – and lets not overlook relationship problems and divorce with the root cause being excessive alcohol use. But I digress…

Before we get started with this weeks “what did you do to prep” I’d like to thank Mr Bill D for his contribution via snail mail – every month he contributes $25 – it is appreciated.

Okay, now what did I do to prep this week…

This week I planted two dwarf pear trees, and two black berry bushes. I also started building more shelving in my storage area and received my copy of The Backyard Homestead Book of Kitchen Know-How: Field-to-Table Cooking Skills.

That’s it for me this week (no money for more) – what about you… what did you do to prep this week?

What did you do to prep this week?

What did you do to prep this week?

Well, folks here we are another week of prepping…

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for their prayers and words of encouragement regarding my father’s terminal cancer diagnosis. Really, the only thing we can do is to leave it in Gods hands and accept his will no matter the final outcome.

As for prepping this week… I mostly made plans for future projects that will be done in the following few weeks however I did manage to get a few things done and even one of two of the things on my to-do-list done.

I planted two hazelnut trees on my property… and cut down a large tree that was near my house that I was afraid would fall down and through my roof at some point. Getting that monster down was a big relief from that worry.

What did you do to prep this week?

I’m sorry that I forgot to post the “what did you do to prep this week” first thing this morning. I’ve had a lot going on as you probably know, but here we go – better late than never as they say.

My dad is home and knows the outcome of his terminal cancer diagnosis and to be honest, right now he is taking the news better than I would have. The best that we can hope for besides a miracle, is that the duration and eventual death will be as painless for him as possible.

Please keep praying that that will be the case with him and this awful illness.

In the near future, I will be posting a few articles on health and cancer prevention. From my research, a combination of diet, supplementation and medical screening are the most effective means of beating this curse on humanity that we call cancer.

Thank God that there will be no cancer nor pain in heaven.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any prepping done this week with everything that’s been going on but plan to get back to it and have some good stuff to report next Friday. I have several projects in the planning stage, I just have to find the money and time to get it all done.

But I’m sure that you all did a lot of prepping this week and we would love to hear about it in the comments below – what did you do to prep this week?
