Pantry Survival Foods.

Tom's Journal.

Hi  Friends,
     You may agree, or disagree, with the short list, below,  but smart folks --- and even the KJV Bible tells us to store up some food and silver, for any emergency that comes down the pike !   Don't ever turn up your nose or say that you would NEVER EAT SUCH FOODS, to stay alive,  because  you would be wrong after 3-7 days of just drinking bad water, and eating the cat's food ....  LOL !

Father God has mostly blessed me, although He has taken my prideful behind to the 'wood shed' many times, to straighten me out, just as a human father would,  out of love.   I say,  it's just too bad that some hard-headed, German- Americans, [like me --- LOL !] and other people, need to be constantly reminded, that 'we are dust in the wind' and ought to be more humble and THANKFUL that we still live in the 'land of plenty,'   --- USA !   
       Friends,  we would ALL do well to look up and read,  1st Peter Chapter 5, verse, 8.    Yes,  that old devil has got MOST OF THE UNBELIEVING WORLD scared and totally messed up in the mind !!  Our life line to sober, reality, is the KJV Bible, and a good, smart, healthy relationship to our Father in heaven, and His only begotten Son,   Jesus Christ.   Please KNOW and SHARE the Gospel of Jesus Christ.    I will also tell you where to get some great wallet sized, "Bible Tracts" to aid you in OUR Gospel ministry that ALL real, Christians are commanded to perform....  just read the whole Chapter of Matthew 24, please.

Friends,  I hope that you have already figured out how to become a "Follower/  Reader" and free subscriber to my humble Blog.    Just look to the Right side of the main page of my Blog face, and follow the super simple directions,  please.   It would really make me HAPPY to gain more 'followers/ regular readers !'
       Two nights ago, I experienced some scary,  "Chest Discomfort," and my Left forearm and wrist also hurt,  and so with my family back ground and knowledge,  I know that heart attacks and strokes are a common trait.   Yes,  we must take the good with the bad, that we inherit or get from battle in Vietnam combat, etc, etc.   Many of my special friends have reached out to me in spirit, prayers, emails and messages, and THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH !!   You are the salt of the earth,  especially my combat Vet Friends and other Military buddies !!     So, I went to the local, Iron Mountain, MI., VAMC the next morning, and got checked out, and the VA -- U.P. here doesn't have any qualified surgeons,  so they wanted me to travel 4 hours to the Milwaukee VA facility,  where they have totally, abused, hurt, and messed me up in the past, making me into a cripple, with their last 'attempt' with a Right knee replacement, and now my Right leg is shorter than my Left, giving me constant pain in the lower spine, etc., and they love to treat me like,  'used toilet tissue,' in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,  VAMC.   Sorry,  that is NOT an option.   I know that there are other facilities in the USA that ARE good for our Veterans, saving lives and doing great surgery for our Vets,   but I live where I am now, and all alone, to fend for myself,  with no friends physically close to support me in any way, shape or manner, unless I bribe then with a fist full of hundred dollar bills, etc.   Yep !  These certainly are the 'Last Days,' that Paul wrote Timothy about.    Everything has to have a $$$$   dollar attached to it, now days, and most friendship must be bought.... sorry to say.  
    I used to be a good cook,  but my feet, back and legs hurt too much to stand up, so I usually throw the good food into my crock pot in the morning, and eat it for supper.   Or now, with the warmer weather,  I am a great cook outside on the Weber grill !!  PTL, for the Spring time !!  Woo- Woo !
       Anyway,  they,  the VA in Milwaukee promised to send me the details of the procedure they want to do, "going thru the groin" up to the Right Upper chamber of the heart, and they also said something about "burning a portion of the BRAIN !!"   Now, that worries me, and I don't want the immature, foreign, imported, Pakistani "doctors" to make me into a short circuited, idiot,  really !!
   So, I want to tell you that I am electing to go to a CIVILIAN doctor, mature, and aged, skilled, perhaps in Green Bay, to do that 'Procedure' on me, and I will have to drive that distance by myself, of course, and also drive back home.    Doesn't that sound like FUN ?   Maybe they will miss with the needle and stab me in the scrotum !  A Vet friend told me to DEMAND that they go in through the WRIST, and insist !   I know how to make myself clear and distinct, with King's English....   but at many VAMC's in the USA,  we get so many FOREIGN, doctors who can BARELY speak and understand ENGLISH !!  And it's their way or hit the highway.   Why,  just a few months ago, I went to the Green Bay, Wisconsin, VAMC, [hospital], to get checked out by 2--Pakistani 'Dentists', and they want to pull out all my teeth,  and I KNOW that I am not that bad,  and only wanted some other measures.    But with those kind of young, immature 'doctors'  they only want to take the most "Expedient" route,  instead of doing the hard, labor intensive, right procedures !!   It's ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY... AT THE VA !   Ever since I first went there in Milwaukee, and the examining doctor, was smoking in the treatment room !
      Well,  needless to say,  I ask for all your prayers for my safety and health, or a merciful death,  please.   And if the Rapture came tonight,  it would be so great, while I am deep in sleep, after I do my nightly prayers.   In the man time,  the VA is talking about giving me a small amount of "rat poison" to thin my blood, to avoid a stroke or heart attack.  I cannot believe how deep and good my sleep was last night --- and I slept to about 10 AM, without once getting up !!  
       My father had a stroke, and died 2-- weeks later, and it wasn't pretty.   He could not speak, and had to wear a diaper, and the nurse, an old bag,  actually scolded him when he had a bowel  movement !!   I wanted to 'talk to her' [also get her fired...] when my Mom told me about that episode and she was angry and upset about it too.    And also, my dear, wife,  Sharon, told me that the staff treated her mean and threaten her physically, etc., at the Nursing Home that we had to put her in when she kept falling down and getting blo0dy at home,  much to my sorrow, until she finally died, and I was married to Sharon L.  Schuckman,  from the State of Ohio, for 5 good years and we loved each other a lot.    I also helped bring her to Jesus, with the help of the Holy Spirit, and taught her the KJV Bible, with God's help, of course.   I loved to play Chess with her !    And she was a great cook, and very good to me.   
        And right after my Dad passed away ---- that's when my only "brother"   Albert,  became a total jerk  [actually a worse jerk than before] to me.    Why some siblings are so mean-spirited,  I will never understand.   He never wanted anything to do with God, or the Bible, so then I tried to avoid even bring the subject up.    My close, "inner circle," of combat Veterans group, and a few other, great Christians, are my TRUE, brothers and sisters ! ! !    Thank You, dear Lord, for giving me these brothers to help me out. ive me advice, share their own lives and challenges with me,   and also pray for me !  In Jesus name.  Amen.
    A heart attack and death,  scare me NOT,  but a stroke does scare me, and being unable to run my own life, sitting in a crazy, imbecilic ward at some nasty "institution", being mistreated and forced to eat the 'crap' that some folks call,  food.     
       I will NEVER hurt myself, nor take my own life,  ever !   I am age 68, and my life is truly in the hands of my Lord.

Tommy,  at age 19, in CuChi, RVN:  68-70.

    25 Must Have Survival Foods: Put Them In Your Pantry Now


    Several ingredients food in cloth bags
    One of my favorite phrases that I tell new preppers is that “your preps are your lifeline.” We must put measures in place before a disaster is upon us in order to have these lifelines available to us when we need it the most.
    Building an emergency pantry is one of those lifelines that takes both time and planning to make it fully functional. Ideally, you want to store shelf stable foods that your family normally consumes, as well as find foods that are multi-dynamic and serve many purposes.
    A few other points to consider when starting an emergency food pantry are:
    • To store emergency foods that will not require refrigeration, and should require little electricity or fuel to prepare.
    •  The food should have a long shelf life.
    • It should provide ample nutrition and contain little salt.
    In my book, The Prepper’s Cookbook: 300 Recipes to Turn Your Emergency Food into Nutritious, Delicious, Life-Saving Meals,  I use the following essential food staples as the basis for the recipes. The following foods are all popular food staples that should be considered as “must haves” for your emergency pantries. The advantages to storing these items, is they encompass all of the key consideration points listed above. Best of all, these items are very affordable and versatile, thus making them worthy of being on your storage shelves for extended emergencies.
    Keep in mind, that water is your most important prep. You need water for consumption, food preparation, and for sanitary needs. Ensure that you have a large quantity of water stored away for emergency use.
    Stock up on the following items today to get your prepper pantry ready for the next extended emergency:
    1. Canned fruits, vegetables, meats, and soups
    2. Dried legumes (beans, lentils, peas)
    3. Crackers
    4. Nuts
    5. Pasta sauce
    6. Peanut butter
    7. Pasta
    8. Flour (white, whole wheat)
    9. Seasonings (vanilla, salt, pepper, paprika, cinnamon, pepper, taco seasoning, etc.)
    10. Sugar
    11. Bouillon cubes or granules (chicken, vegetable, beef)
    12. Kitchen staples (baking soda, baking powder, yeast, vinegar)
    13. Honey
    14. Unsweetened cocoa powder
    15. Jell-O or pudding mixes
    16. Whole grains (barley, bulgur, cornmeal, couscous, oats, quinoa, rice, wheat berries)
    17. Nonfat dried milk
    18. Plant-based oil (corn oil, vegetable oil, coconut oil, olive oil)
    19. Cereals
    20. Seeds for eating and sprouting
    21. Popcorn (not the microwavable kind)
    22. Instant potato flakes
    23. Packaged meals (macaroni and cheese, hamburger helper, Ramen noodles, etc.)
    24. Purified drinking water
    25. Fruit juices, teas, coffee, drink mixes
    Use this list as a starting point on beginning or extending your preparedness pantry- and don’t feel handcuffed to only stocking up on these items. Always keep your family’s food preferences and dietary needs in mind when investing in your food supply. It would be extremely advantageous to have a two week supply (at a minimum) of these shelf stable food items on hand to care for your family. To see how much your family would need, click here.
    We never know when disasters or emergencies may strike, so why not be prudent and be ready for them before they affect our livelihood and well being.
