[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0Njc1OTE3XzQ2MkEwMjJG] Broomcorn After a collapse, things will wear out. That broom that isn't used very often, will become a primary way to removing dirt and debris that gets tracked in by your shoes. Have a care, and create a place for your boots, and learn to take them off, much like has become a Japanese custom. There's a very real practical side to removing shoes as well as a hospitable side to relaxing for you and your guests. Less dirt also means less bacterial and parasite infections. There's health benefits for sure for using a little preventative care. “An acre of broomcorn will yield enough brooms for 150-350 brooms.” It also produces a useful seed product that can be eaten as a cereal. The stalks of broomcorn can be used is cut immediately for forage for livestock, and also for making paper. http://books.google.com/books?id=tutEAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA47&dq=broomcorn+stalks+use&hl=en&sa=X&ei=peOvUOa8EJLk8gTwloCgCQ&ved=0CC0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=broomcorn%20stalks%20use&f=false Making a simple broomcorn “cobweb broom”. It's like a handheld smaller cousin of a broom like a dustbroom. http://friendswoodbrooms.com/cobweb.htm Some useful links: http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/afcm/broomcorn.html http://www.uky.edu/Ag/CDBREC/introsheets/broomcorn.pdf Note: How wise it would be to purchase an inexpensive carpet sweeper now. If you use it frequently, it can be very helpful, and of course that nice electric vacuum will be of little use later. [/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
