    Anyone changing anything in light of Iran/Iraq?

    Exactly that, is anyone changing anything they are doing? I have to travel to Cincinnati this weekend with M and baby H, and I might be giving a little more thought to it than usual, but other that, I don't see anything to change at this time.

    No changes for us. We are at our permanent bug-in site, so the world can fade into oblivion and we won't know about it unless we happen to turn on the news.

    Does not losing the extra 10 lbs (well, 30 lbs would be better) count as a "prep"? Ya know, in case I need to live off the "fat of the land"?

    I have decided to actively start working on diminishing that prep myself. Having the baby and 2 skinny women, it is hard. They dont see an issue, and it makes it tough.

    Most folks would tell you it's just a matter of will power. NOT SO! It's a matter of WON'T power. I won't eat all that stuff she put on my plate. I won't sit and eat fried pies while watching TV at night. I won't have that bag of popcorn during the football game. You only have to ignore that the skinny women can eat anything they want, and take control over what you put in your mouth. Then get out of the house at every opportunity instead of sitting in front of the computer on Farcebook or some other site. Yeah, that's tough. But that's what it takes.

    Now if only I could do all that...

    My wife likes to cook, I like to eat. Bad combo. I stay active around here with all the chores. Never been one for "exercise" as such. I never learned how to work out and feel like a monkey effing the football in a gym. I know that I need it, but am really uncomfortable there.

    Take up a hobby like blacksmithing. Good exercise while having fun doing it, not to mention it's a great skill to have when everything goes down the drain. I like being able to make my own tools... hammers, tongs, punches, chisels, knives, stuff for the wife, etc. Her favorite so far is the paper towel holder with 3 horse shoes as the base and a doubled and twisted 3/8" rod topped with a heart for the upright. It's stout enough that you don't yank it off the table when tearing off a paper towel.

    Agree on the Blacksmithing, joins in with my knife making which does not include as much physical work

    Fire + steel = Blacksmithing

    Blacksmithing + talent = Sharps

    Sharps + kickstand = bad
