We’ve been looking for an emergency radio with shortwave reception. Bulldog Man came across the Kaito, KA009R 4 Way Powered Emergency Crank Radio with Shortwave Antenna T1 to add to our preparedness gear (great for camping, during storms, bug out, etc...).The radio has a 10 band world receiver, long range AM receiver, aviation band, NOAA weather band, TV1/TV2 channels, high sensitivity FM band, 4 shortwave bands, super bright led flashlight, with cell phone charging capabilities.The radio can be powered by Dynamo crank, solar panel, AC/DC adapter, AA batteries or 110V electric power.It’s a great deal (we picked up one), and can be purchased at http://www.campingsurvival.com for the sale price of $34.96.
I harvested half of our carrots this afternoon from the above ground garden box to provide additional space for more growth. I took the harvested carrots, cleaned them up and placed them in the steamer as part of tonight’s dinner.The main course was another vegetable, the potato (not from the garden). The potatoes were scrubbed and then baked in the oven on a cookie sheet with olive oil rubbed on the exterior.The baking sheet and potatoes were covered with tin foil, this allows the bottoms to become hard and crunchy (we like to eat the skin). Several options were made available to place on the baked potatoes.They were butter, sour cream, cottage cheese, cheese, broccoli, mushroom, onions and bacon.The meal was very good, a little healthy and maybe not, LOL……..
