Preparedness Notes for Monday — February 22, 2021

On this day in 1732, George Washington was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, the second son from the second marriage of a colonial plantation owner. An initially loyal British subject, Washington eventually led the Continental Army in the American Revolution and became known as the father of the United States.

On this day in 1943,  Sophie Scholl was executed by beheading for organizing the White Rose group–a student resistance to the Hitler regime.  She had been convicted of high treason, after having been found distributing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich (LMU) with her brother, Hans. She was 21 years old.

Today we are posting a review written by our Field Gear Editor, Pat Cascio.



  1. Vaccine and other News:

    Buy one, get jabbed free: IKEA, Big offer vaccines to shoppers

    Through Tuesday, February 23, Furniture giant IKEA has set up vaccination stations in its stores around Israel, with shots available to members of all of Israel’s health funds.

    Green passport vs. vaccination certificate – let’s make it easy

    What is a vaccination certificate? * Where do I get a green passport? * And what if I recovered from COVID-19?

    1. What do the certificates look like? I know several fee-based printers as well as some pro-bono ones.

      There is still much work ahead for God’s workers and He has plans for us in many, many areas.

      1. There isn’t a way to copy them. They are all assigned a code that is scanned and is a part of the beast system. It’s impossible to duplicate it. You either have it or you don’t. I’m very deep into the study of Revelation this morning… Some possible new insights are forming in my mind.

    2. I had this idea to pick up a dog at the adoption pound, give it my name and ask the vet to inoculate the dog with the covid vaccine. That way I could have a vaccination certificate with my name on it.

      Cancel that scheme. I would never harm an animal.

    1. Thanks for posting this, TR.

      And you, JWR for posting this:

      That is what patriotism looks like. Some of us may end up paying that price for our beliefs in action.

      Pray without ceasing.

      Carry on

  2. For Creative types:

    Primarily this, and other transformers, can allow me to run any number of motors, electronics, charge any battery, directly from PV panels, or as another application as an example, to use power from a 6 volt battery to recharge a AAA battery. The price is now much higher than the $18.00 I paid, yet if you have a specific need, it could be worth it. I originally got these to make high concentrations of Nano Silver, but it could easily run a radio, or power an electric motor to turn Country Living Mill directly from PV panels, or from a battery bank. I have plans to operate this mill that needs to run a 60 rpms, or less to avoid over heating the bearings. By setting the voltage lower, the mill will run slower. Two of these will supply 10 amps. It may require one to start the mill by hand, and let the electric motor take over.

    To step up the input voltage, simply connect PV panels in series. It could also be use to regulate power from a 36 volt PV array to operate a 12 volt Dankoff solar water pump. I have found it is best to keep 12vdc Dankoff pump below 15 volts when running directly from a panel. This device limits the voltage to the pump to 15 volts or less. 15 volts and lower to these pumps, extends pump head life.

  3. George Washington, Abe Lincoln, Ron Reagan, Bush JR. then Trump. George is my choice for #1. yes i know Abe and Bush had some serious problems but they were better than the best demo/soc/com that i can think of.
