Wifelessness & HungryMan !!!

...dropped Debbie off at the airport and as the saying goes, she left for Africa just as if she were in her right mind :) A year ago she went on a similar exploit, and I know she will be a big help to anyone who's path she crosses. 10 of them will be involved in a building project in Uganda with a Watoto Children's orphanage. Needless to say, I'm extremely proud of her. So myself and the boys will take advantage of the "ahem" lack of restraint if you will. First things first, we needed to stock up on some "quick and easy" food. Atlantic Superstore to the rescue with their Swanson Hungryman Turkey Dinners on sale for $1.88.

I have enough firewood to last me into next winter, so a power outage is really only an inconvenience at worst. Of course winter helps in that the only real electric dependency, Refrigeration, is offset by the fact that it's cold. However, and to get to my point, I'm a little obsessed with the whole concept off "off-grid refrigeration". It's actually a childhood throwback on two fronts. Let me explain, first I remember going to our "camp" in the summer. Routinely, considerable quantities of Soda Pop (we just called it "drink") were lugged to the camp. Sometimes it was Co-op brand tin cans, Pepsi, or even green bottles of Mountain Dew complete with the hillbilly exclaiming "it'll…
