I'm starting to hear a lot of chatter about ebola at my hospital. Two weeks ago they held an educational seminar about viruses in general (which focused on ebola). Then I read in the local newspaper how we were planning for the possibility of receiving ebola patients (as a precaution).
The buzz is getting louder. What do you guys/gals think? Are you concerned?

I found the 650 to be quite comfortable to use. I found out that there is an 1150 model which lends itself more to mass producing on a small business scale but the warranty isn't as good as the smaller models.
I'm interested in casting my own lead bullets too.
Do you have experience or comments in this arena?

I flipped them over and used more planks to cover the bottom. I filled them with pine needles since there's an abundance on the ground. I used them mostly to fill in the cracks on the bottom of the boxes. Then I mixed in some of the coffee grounds I was collecting from the coffee cart at work. They just throw away all of their grounds so I figured I'd bring some home. I know it makes the soil very acidic so I won't use very much.

I drove some rebar in the ground and bent some 3/4" pvc pipe to meet at the apex using a 45 degree elbow. Right now, I'm just building a mock-up of the structure. When I get everything in place, I'll take it apart and glue it all for strength.

Anybody know of anything that can be grown in Nov/Dec/Jan just for fun?

As Wifey and I continue to research a location for our perfect homestead in the future, we were told how wonderful Twin Falls can be for liberty minded homesteaders like us.
But we've never been to Idaho. I was wondering if any of you have input on this topic?
