Survival Saturday Special – Pressure Canning Basics

It’s been quite a few Years since I last did any pressure canning. I had a lot of fun with it but I was working with old equipment. The maximum capacity of my canner was only 7 Quart jars. Still I was able to put up quite a stash of meat and vegetables.

In the next couple of weeks I plan on increasing my canning capacity by a big margin.

Why is this? The last extreme hardship of my life caused me to deplete my stockpiles of numerous food items that I think is good to have on the shelf at all times. As I have recovered from that hardship period there have been there things that have been greater priorities in my life than replenishing my surplus food supply. As 2015 is a year for making preparations for what is now inevitable, I really have to make food a big priority and I don’t have much time to work with. A large capacity pressure canner is exactly the tool I need to take effective corrective action.

In the video that follows you will see the Fresh Tech automatic canning system by Ball. I really think that little gadget is cool and it is affordable but the capacity is very low. Still, just the fact that it is an automatic canner allows you to be in production without thinking about it much. I don’t think it’s anything I want to buy until they make one with a higher capacity.

This is just another interesting subject for the Preppers out in Revo World…

Too good not to pass along…

Friday Night at the Movies – Neon City

imagesK7SLP7NP

Happy Friday Night everybody! We have conquered another week and the party light is now lit. The Real Revo Theater now presents another cinematic masterpiece. There is no greater entertainment value to be found anywhere and we all know this. The occasional passer-by figures it out.

I’ve been holding this one in my stash for quite a while, since before the 2014 Holiday Season. This movie features three people who I have always enjoyed being entertained by. One of them won a Super Bowl Ring and as this is Super Bowl Weekend I think this Friday night is as appropriate as it will ever be to bring this one from the vault and put it up on the silver screen.

Friday Night Music Video

Just a little warm-up for our Friday night observances.

As always when presenting music videos on a Friday evening, I try to insure that the music video is somehow related to the Friday night movie…

A Sunday Morning Sermon

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning in Revo World. As such, perhaps it is that someone out there could use an encouraging word from one of God’s anointed ministers. Everyone of any or no Faith is welcome here at the Revo Chapel, should you be inclined to come on in and sit a spell.

Friday Night at the Movies – Rising Storm

untitled (28)

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen. It’s Friday night and it’s time to get this party started. We leave behind another week on the grind and the rituals that go with the beginning of the weekend must now be observed. We take comfort in our rituals. You never have to ask when the next showing of our featured presentation here will be. You never have to look at your watch here either. You are here. The time here is always Now. Our featured presentation for the evening is now showing.

We have had a strong run of excellent movies for our Friday Night Flights of late. Last Friday night left me wondering how to fill the Theater this weekend. I was going to go for a double dose of Polish War Movies. So I began my search for another movie by doing some historical research on the history of Warfare in Poland. I’m beginning to think that the fact that the Polish people still exist is evidence that they may well be the toughest people on Earth. I’m from a Scottish Clan that has been traditionally governed by women because the men seem to get killed off in Wars a lot through history, mostly due to the fact that they had a knack for fighting as or for the underdogs in any disagreement. I would like to think that they simply had balls and fought for what they thought was right, regardless of the odds.

Go check out some Polish history and you will see a lot of fighting as underdogs. I raise my kilt to you Poles.

Friday Night at the Movies – 1920 The Battle of Warsaw

untitled (26)

Good evening one and all to the most exciting destination of the most exciting night of the week. The entire weekend is still ahead of us and it’s time to relax in order to enjoy that fact. It’s show time at the Real Revo and we have a very nice bit of work lined up for our Friday Night Flight. It is not a Hollywood production, as is the case with many of our favorites. Hollywood simply will not make much of what we like anymore and I do enjoy reading about their box office flops that have no hope of breaking even within the next couple of Decades.

As was the case last Friday night I really need a little action in my life tonight. We have enjoyed many foreign movies here. The Saturday Night Special from North Korea last week was spectacular. I recently enjoyed a Russian World War Two movie that is not yet available here but when it is, you will be the first to know. Tonight we will be enjoying a Polish movie, a Polish War Movie to be exact.

This is my second Polish War Movie and I’m starting to see a very clear pattern…

Saturday Night Special – Order Number 27

Ladies and Gentlemen, as well as anyone else who stopped by for Friday Night at the Movies last night…

You may recall reading that I recently discovered a North Korean action movie. I intended to present it last night but found that the Battle of Athens was more suited to my mood. Then as I was watching it for the first time last night I realized that the movie had content in it that I found to be highly objectionable. A good bit of the content of the movie was devoted to women sucking what is left of the lives of their men right out of them entirely. There was WAY too much of that BS occupying the content of the movie before we could get on down to some good, old fashioned gunplay. It was a good movie about Veterans sticking together though.

In order to cleanse my palate effectively and entirely, tonight I must have Number One North Korean Action Movie.

Actors may be but in most cases are not North Korean.

Enjoy…

Friday Night at the Movies – The Battle of Athens

untitled (23)

It’s another glorious Friday Night in Revoworld and here we are at the Theater again. It’s just gotta happen if you’re breezing through. You know that there’s going to be a movie playing and you will at least want to know what it is.

Let me tell you what it isn’t. In the spirit of our current relations with North Korea and no doubt the desire of our President to normalize them by officially signing the surrender documents to properly conclude the ongoing ceasefire and bring about the mutually preferred end of the Korean War thereby helping to legitimize his Nobel Peace Prize, in honor of all that I had an awesome movie lined up tonight. It’s a North Korean movie with Engrish subtitles.

I was totally unable to resist it at first.

Do you really think he even cares anymore?

I actually feel kind of stupid for publishing this. I’m asking a stupid question. The subject matter itself is pretty stupid. If you ask yourself the question that is the title of this publication, after reading the story at the link below, you may feel more stupid than before you ever encountered this.

Does he even care if this story about him is beginning to circulate in the media?

Slow news day.

Saturday Night Special – Friends of Kim

Just another entertaining publication that is selected in recognition of the Sony Hack.

International supporters of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea take a tour of the workers paradise that they all have imagined. It turned out to be something they didn’t imagine. Here we see Communist idealism collide with Reality.

It should be pretty funny.

Friday Night at the Movies – Olympus has fallen

images (7)

Welcome Revoistas and movie lovers everywhere. Welcome to our first Friday Night Flight of 2015. We hope that your holiday observances of 2014 were full of rest, relaxation and all the things that make those holidays what they are. Here we are in the Year 2015. Who would have thunk it? Each Year ticks away with its own twists and turns. Time marches on, ever quicker by the day.

Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end, the faster the roll spins.

Nonetheless I’m going to tell you that I’m happy to be living the times we are living. Each one of us were put here at the time and place that our Creator chose for us. Each one of us has something to contribute to the world and though we might be inclined to think that our existence and what we do with it doesn’t really matter much in the grand scheme of things, it actually matters more than we know.

Now let us return to low Earth orbit and the movie at hand…

A New Year’s Resolution

Happy New Year 2015. I hope that it will be a great Year for all of us. There will be much silliness on the part of our elected representatives and this comes as no surprise. Most of them are idiots. The ones that aren’t idiots are purely evil. Anything that is to be expected of them can’t be good and we all know this. All the good things that will come to us in 2015 will be by way of the blessings that Almighty God pours out on us.

I have several resolutions to keep in 2015. At the top of the list is to achieve a vastly improved physical condition. I must lose weight. I must get my cardiovascular conditioning back up. I must engage in strength training. I have to really take it seriously for a number of reasons but the reason I will cling to most passionately is that it will all be part of my conditioning for the coming unpleasantness.

There are numerous sub-resolutions built into that one that pretty much spell out how I will achieve readiness. Some might think I am being selfish, putting my own needs ahead of the need for domestic tranquility among the female population that will be so greatly affected by my physical accomplishments. This has always been a hazard but as I grow older it becomes an even greater… problem. The gym at work has a large glass wall. Will it be large enough to accommodate the onlookers who will be there to gawk as I start pushing and slinging the Iron? I seriously doubt it and fully expect to get a note from HR to turn it down a notch or two. Fortunately I’ve been through this enough times to know exactly what to expect and I’m ready for it. Scripture explains that Iron sharpens Iron. The Return of Quadzilla is imminent.
