[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NTY0NDUyXzU5QkM5QzhD] Wood Ashes Here's a link that briefly details wood ashes and their uses. I urge you carefully use them in the garden post-collapse. Applying too strong a mix of them, often carelessly dumped in high concentration and not broadcast, will result in soil that is too basic (beyond 7.0 pH). Most plant like that middle zone for growth and producing produce to eat. This means you'll have to fiddle with pine needles (increases acidity) to create more acid soil and it can take awhile to get it back in balance. Be prudent. http://oohf.typepad.com/old_otter_holler_farm/2012/11/using-wood-ashes-on-the-farm.html Wood ashes were used to create sterile layers in cheese-making. See: http://books.google.com/books?id=0oXYX9Qzx9oC&pg=PA46&dq=wood+ashes+pioneer&hl=en&sa=X&ei=BFmpUNXTPJSW8gTAvoDoAg&ved=0CDAQ6AEwATgU#v=onepage&q=wood%20ashes%20pioneer&f=false Black eye shadow was made of soot deliberately made on the back of plates, but also made by wood ash. It may not seem like a survival topic, but honestly a lot of women will be concerned about such things, and this is a coping strategy for feeling some sense of normalcy. The reason women feel insecure about their appearance is because as men we have made them think that to be beautiful they must look perpetually youthful and painted. As men, we should re-evaluate that, and help our women cope better, and raise our daughters better. Every fire will be put to bed by covering with ashes. These will protect coals so breakfast can be started quickly. Other than shoveling, those wood ashes will be the primary way of dealing with snow and melting it. This will leach of course into the surrounding as it raises the freezing temperature of the water it blends with and raises the pH. You won't have salt or use salt in this way anymore. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
