07:19 – Wow. Fourteen years since islam attacked this country and we’ve done nothing about it except make life harder for Americans. I don’t even blame this lack of action on Barack Hussein Obama II, who’s done exactly what one might have expected him to do, just from his name. But Bush had seven years to do something, and he did nothing either. Except make life harder for Americans.

Nearly all of my time this week was devoted to working on science kit stuff, but I did manage to get a few items that might be useful in the future. Here’s what I did to prep this week:

  • I bought two hundred feet of clothesline and a pack of 100 clothespins. Very cheap now, possibly very important later.
  • Colin convinced me to order five 2-pound boxes of Alpo Variety Snaps dog treats for him.
  • While I was at it, I ordered a few bottles of Bertolli pasta sauces in what amount to canning jars. I got a couple jars each of Italian Sausage Garlic sauce and Five Cheese sauce, just to try, and four jars of Mushroom Alfredo sauce, which we already know we like. I also ordered two bottles each of KC Masterpiece Barbecue Sauce in Original and Hickory Smoke flavors, a couple jars of Smucker’s Strawberry Jam, a stainless steel flour sifter, and an oven thermometer.
  • We did pick up a few long-term storage foods at Costco last weekend, including 22 pounds of assorted pasta and a few minor items like 12 gallons (45 liters) of bottled water, six large jars of applesauce, a can of Gatorade lemon/lime drink mix, and a couple large boxes of Ritz crackers.

So, what precisely did you do to prepare this week? Tell me about it in the comments.
