    I don't know how many of you know that they have a "Hand Crank/Solar radio.
    They work really well and if its daytime you just sit it in the sun, at night you twist the handle and it plays a good amount of time on a full wind. They are really nice as you don't have to worry about keeping batteries. They also have the crank flash lights at Wal Mart, and they are real pricey. My husband got one for about 8 bucks, and never having to get batteries is great. It also had a small radio built right in to it, so its like two for the price of one.

    I would stockup on :

    1. batteries (for radio, flashlights, water purifier etc.)
    2. Material (for sewing new clothes, washable sanatary pads, patching old clothes)
    3. Thread (same as material)
    4. Yarn (for crochet, knitting, hats, socks, scarves and more)
    5. canning lids (well, for canning)
    6. lantern oil/wicks (for light if the power is out)
    7. garden seed, heirlooms (so we could continue to grow food)
    8. Matches (you cant imagine how many you would use if you have not electric)
    9. Bleach (to clean and to disenfect water if clean water is not available)
    10. Animal Feed (dog, cat, chicken, rabbit) (well, to feed the animals)

    I have started on this list, slowely, but I do not have enough yet. I can never keep enough animal feed for the animals, but have started planting natural stuff for them and giving them more "collected materials" from our property.

    Wink Doggie homemade food

    I am just beginning in this journey for the future. Without reading all the posts ( I will go back and read many) I also am stocking for a future nationwide problem that none of us thought we would see this in our lifetimes. It has seemed to come into the forefront almost overnight.
    My request is; would you and (others) share what you are growing and/or homemade bisquits, etc, etc, for dogs. I also have ferrets but that is a whole different arena; unless someone here also has ferrets and recipes for them. I am anxious to start reading here as I am sure I will learn much. Thank gosh for you folks and others who are looking to the future.
