Recent Stock Market Scare Signals It’s Time To Stock Up Even More And Get Ready To Move Out Of The Cities

~~~

Yes so the stock market is doing it’s thing and on the news they are saying we are in a recession. Well that’s my signal to continue to do what we do. Time to really stock up!

I thought I would stop in and share…

It’s time to stock up even more and on lot’s of peanut butter, water and to always have some extra cash on hand right about now. And so I think if I lived in the city I would seriously be considering trying to come up with a plan on how I might be able to move away from the city. I would seriously be gearing up to do as soon as possible before things go way south if you know what I mean, because you really don’t want to be around the serious chaos that will rise up. People go insane when there is no more access to the things they have been used to having and in the cities there is too many people for the police force to try to handle.

So we recently purchased only one of those number 10 cans of powdered peanut butter and a couple of jars of Jiffy and so I guess it’s time to go back and buy more of the same and I think it would be wise to hold onto your old fashioned 50 gallon or more water heater or buy brand new of the same because that is an easy way of storing and having extra water for when and if it’s shut off instead of having to buy a water barrel. Although I did have in the plan to buy a 50 gallon water barrel to put on the side of the house to collect rain water I think now would be a good time to get it.

But in the meantime we recently purchased an aquapod which goes into the bathtub to be filled up. Speaking of aquapod I think I will go get it and keep it stored in my bathroom cabinet so during an emergency I won’t waste valuable time in having to go look for it.

So people think…..

WATER, PEANUT BUTTER, CASH ON HAND AND MOVE OUT OF THE CITIES! WATER, PEANUT BUTTER, CASH ON HAND AND MOVE OUT OF THE CITIES! WATER, PEANUT BUTTER, CASH ON HAND AND MOVE OUT OF THE CITIES! LOL!

LOTS OF LUCK TO YOU!

What’s The Antidote For A Bad Man? It’s The Love Of A New Man: Balika Vadu

~~~

After remarried, on seeing the love of a new man….

The widow’s heart is filled with new hope for life.

~Balika Vadu~

~~~

~~~

I’ve been told by certain ones that the antidote for being in a miserable relationship with a bad man is another man.

While this has not been the issue for Sugna (Vibha Anand) and Shyham’s (Vikrant Massey) married life. Sugna was in a miserable predicament of being the widow of her first husband Pratap who unfortunately died on their wedding day and she’d already slept with him before their marriage and was found later to be with child. And so she suffered and was under the profound loneliness, hard persecution, strict rules and guidelines of the living the lifestyle of an Indian widow. But then came Shyham….

He came into her life one day and in time fell so deeply in love with her and from that moment forward he fought with great difficulty for the right to have her in his life as his wife.

Because a widow getting married again was not common and not always allowed. So in this case the antidote for lonely widowhood is LOVE.

It Take’s Mutual Respect, Forgiveness And Love If A Family Is To Be United ~ Balika Vadu~

From the day Basant (Satyajit Sharma) found out the truth. That his mother Kalyani Singh (Surekha Sikri) was not his biological mother and his father was that horrible and wicked man Mahaveer Singh (Rajendra Gupta) he has been battling within him self from that moment forward. Surprisingly his father began to change and switched his life to a journey of repentance, gave himself up for his crimes and served a seven (7) year jail sentence but one day he eventually decided to return to the village. On the day of his arrival to the village he saw his grandson Nandu playing with some other little boys in the road. He became emotional and could not contain his feelings for him and so began to hug his little grandson and the police arrested him thinking he was trying to abduct the boy.

So when the Singh family was notified they were already in a frenzy as they were searching for him all over the place because his mother Gehna (Neha Marda) thought he had gone with his father all day. They all arrived at the precinct to see that it was the grandfather who was with Nadu. But Kalyani questioned her grandson to find out if he Mahaveer was trying to abduct him but the little boy said he told him he was bringing him home to his grandmother Kalyani. That’s when Kalyani began to believe that Mahaveer was repenting and changing his life and so told the officer to free him from the prison cell and she brought Mahaveer to their home. Basant was furious and could not forgive nor stand to be in the same room with his father because all he could think about is how wicked he was in the past and of how he treated Kalyani when he and Bharion (Anup Soni) were small children and how he gave their family a hard time just before he went to prison. Kalyani invited him to stay in their mansion and ordered her staff to go clean up the Mahaveer’s mansion since it was left abandoned for all those year.

It was then that Mahaveer got the chance to hug and love on his little grandson Nandu and it was so amazing to see how Kalyani had changed her feeling toward him and had so much compassion for him. Anyway she invited him to spend the night against Basant and Jagdish’s (Shashank Vyas) wishes because they have not forgiven Mahaveer and was holding onto their grudges against him.

The next morning as he was about to leave to return to his mansion as Kalyani had it cleaned up for him she decided at the last minute to instead let the Mahaveer move in with them for good so he would be there to spend more time with his grandson Nandu, plus she felt that she promised Basant’s deceased mother that if Mahaveer ever repented and became a changed man, she would unite him with Basant and his grandson. Kalyani believed that when she died she would be able to meet Basant’s biological mother with peace because she did not want to have to say she did not keep her promise.

So Basant is against this but Kalayani insists he stay so that Mahaveer is also looked after and cared for in his old age and he is living near his family.

~~~

My Thoughts:

I tell you that was the moment I could not help but let the tears fall from my eyes watching the show that week. It was so amazing to see how the eldest woman of the house (Kalyani) as she used her authority to work towards respect and forgiveness. She wanted to see the son she raised Basant, her grandson Nandu and the grandfather Mahaveer united as a family and was willing to not give into what Basant and Jadish wanted which was to banish the man forever from their lives.

So it made me think about how many times do you see how people will not give in and do what is right sometimes even when it’s in their power to do so. How many times do you see how people prefer to hold onto tight to their grudges, pain, hurt and unforgiveness. Even after seeing someone changing and repenting of their wicked ways. I know it’s hard and painful for some that they prefer to hold on to their anger, hurt and pain. And rightly so for some. But the road to healing, love and happiness is achieved only when love is given first place in the lives of people.

I watch on YouTube a channel with videos about the lives of some homeless people. And you get to see how broken and destroyed these people’s lives are. Some of them from all walks of life and they found themselves in this unfortunate condition. Some have family who are alive and don’t give a hill of beans about their family member and some don’t have family at all. But what I cannot stand to see is how cold hardhearted some people are with each other and don’t seem to allow people to make their mistakes and forgive them when they see them repenting. I don’t know but it seems homelessness is getting worse everyday and my question is where is their family members in all of this.

I remember as a young girl you did not see homelessness to the degree you are seeing it now. People are living and dying on the streets. Living in tents and sleeping on the ground in the huge cities as people walk right past them and treat them like they are inanimate objects. I understand that some of the homeless are on drugs and some suffer from mental illness and that is hard to deal with but there must be a solution to all of this. These people need help. Some are abandoned by their families and it doesn’t mean they should be left to lie there and die there. It’s not right!

I watched some of the videos as each homeless individual explained their situation as to why they are in the predicament and some of them come from dysfunctional families no doubt. A lot of the women say they have been raped while living in the streets and some of the men have been too. They suffer all kinds of disease and illnesses. Some of them are treated as if they are less then a dog. I know some animals that get better treatment. And then you have the judgmental people who look down on the homeless and even spit on them. You have people who have the power to help but instead use their position to further hurt these people.

My reason for bringing this issue up is because there is an ideal that needs to be reached. There is a need for more love in this society. A need for respect. Letting go of grudges and unforgiveness. Why don’t we help another human being when its in your power to do so. Stop the hate and the abuse. If there were more of us who are willing to help and do so instead of the people who bring and cause harm, then this world can be a much better place for many of us.

I believe if every decent individual did just a little bit more, yes just a little bit more good deeds, changed their hearts and minds to be kind and good to other’s there would not be all of this homelessness and dysfunction in families and those who have no one. If you knew of a family member who was having a hard time how about you reaching out and be of some assistance.

I remember when I was a young child our family house was burned down in a fire and we were what you would call homeless but to tell the truth we were not really homeless because everybody in our family was there for us and was willing to give a helping hand. We the family was divided up in groups of two or three and stayed in another relatives home until my mother was able to get us another place to live eventually. In the meantime we slept in warm beds with family that cared and loved us and fed us. There was a lot of that going on back then.

People got help from their own families and friends. So I cannot for the life of me understand where all that love has gone. What’s wrong with families now. Instead of sticking together and helping each other some are busy fighting and not getting along over a bunch of foolishness.

Children are being disobedient to their parents and therefore are getting thrown out into the streets or running away from their homes due to some family disagreement and dysfunction.

It’s really sad and every time I watch a video about how these homeless people are living on the streets for years and years, not just for a few days or a few weeks but years, it breaks my heart. Something needs to be done to help bring families back together. There is a need for a program that will help unite at least some of these homeless people back with their families if there is no other housing as it seems to be. And to house the ones who have no family support. This is so important. Every human being deserves a warm bed and a roof over their heads where they can safely lay. This homelessness needs to be dealt with and compassion to another needs to come alive because the earth is speaking to us all. Have you ever wondered why the earth is trembling and shaking and quaking so much! There is flooding, storms and tornado’s all over the place happening one after the other. I say God above is not pleased. Yeah I believe it’s all happening because of the hearts of the people that have gone sour and love for one another has waxed cold.

So tell me where are all the religious and spiritual people who claim to be so in with God? What have you done to help another human who has lost their way?

How We Sanitize Our Hotel Room In 10 Minutes

I will never forget watching on TV a news show where hidden cameras was placed in various hotel rooms to spy on the custodian staff and testing was done on general surfaces and they found dangerous and harmful bacteria and viruses lurking. They caught on video a couple of the maids as they washed the bathroom sink cup, kitchen cups and coffee pots with a toilet brush. Well I tell you after I saw this I was left undone. I vowed that I would never stay in a hotel ever again! LOL! (check out the youtube video below) But frankly I knew this was an impossibility for me. So I knew I had to come up with a plan and a way to get around this so my husband and I can still travel and feel alright staying in a hotel room without feeling totally like we might get something. I tell you I have enough of my own health issues and I don’t need no help in getting sick with anything else. So with a few cleaning tools and techniques I feel empowered after we sanitize our room and feel a little bit safer. So anytime we stay in a hotel room this is what we do.

First off we try to find and stay in the best, good reputation and clean hotel that we possibly can afford and pray! And at “check in” bring to the attention of the hotel desk that we prefer not to have any cleaning staff service or enter our room for our entire stay. That is a must! Because it means no one is to touch anything or change out the sheets or the towels or come in to clean the bathroom or any area of the room until we check out. And the reason for this is so the rooms surfaces stays clean and won’t be re contaminated by some unsanitary worker/staff’s unclean practices.

So once we open the door to our room we might leave our luggage/over night bags right out side the door or in the car (to bring in afterwards) and enter (open the windows if we can) to do a ten minute easy over all clean up. We bring some good, effective, quick and easy cleaning products in a plastic grocery bag with us. So here’s what we use.

12 Cleaning Items To Bring:

1 spray bottle of Clorox Clean Up

*1 Clorox/Lysol Disinfectant Wipes

*1 Seventh Generation Disinfectant Spray

(eucalyptus, spearmint & thyme scented)

1 small bottle of bleach dish liquid

1 liquid hand soap

1 large old rag (to clean 1st kitchen and 2nd bathroom floor to dispose of)

*1 roll of paper towels

1 sanitizing wand

1 bottle hand sanitizer

5 grocery bags (for garbage)

2 large garbage bags

*6 pairs of disposable plastic gloves

*lovely scented wax melts (optional)

Our over all cleaning technique takes 10 minutes to do and can be done once you know where? how? and what? needs to be cleaned and it’s a piece of cake.

HIT THE HOT SPOTS

Here’s what? needs to get cleaned and where?:

The bathroom toilet, bathroom sink, bathroom shower/tub, rails, door handles, light switches, and floor.

In extended stay hotels with kitchenettes, the kitchen sink, microwave, counter-tops, table, handles and floor.

The bedroom surfaces of night stands, TV stand, TV, phone, headboard, TV remote, the desk and remove the top cover/blanket (because most hotels never wash it) and try to wipe off any area where you think you and your family hands will be touching during the stay. Swipe keys have multiple germs so clean them too.

Sanitize the sheets and duvet on bed with the sanitizing wand. Wipe off any chairs in bedroom or if you have a lounge area the chair or sofa in there.

Cover the areas you cannot clean like the floor or carpet beside your bed with the hotel towels.

Here’s how? to clean these areas. Apply light pressure when wiping surfaces corner to corner. Use a new wipe for each new surface. Use several clean wipes. First wipe discard and re-wipe with a second wipe each surface. Don’t use the same one wipe everywhere and for the whole room or else you are defeating the purpose here. Use these wipes liberally! Use lots of the wipes! Wipe the areas at least two or three times to ensure you are getting it clean enough. When using the rag on the floor first wipe up the kitchen floor first and the bathroom last. You go from the cleanest area to the dirtiest.

~~~

~Dirty Hotel Rooms: Hidden Camera Shows What Really Gets Cleaned!~

~~~

A. Bathroom:(about 2 minutes)

Put on plastic gloves and 1. spray Clorox Clean Up in the shower/bathtub, (spray or soak shower head in plastic bag with bleach and water) and tub safety bars, bathroom sink, entire toilet bowl-handle-toilet seat and then go back out of the bathroom spraying the Clorox clean up onto floor and leave the room to soak for at least 20 minutes and close the door.

Then head to the kitchen.

B. Kitchen: (about 2 minutes or less)

Spray Clorox Clean Up in the kitchen sink and inside the microwave, leave it to soak for 20 minutes.

Next we use the 2. Clorox/Lysol disinfectant wipes on the kitchen counter top, the table top, handles, inside the fridge surfaces and fridge door handles and the outside of the microwave.

Then head to the bedroom area.

C. Bedroom: (about 2 minutes or less)

We wipe off the surface/tops of the beds side tables, the head board, the TV remote, the desk, the phone, the air conditioner knob/handle, any chairs or lounge chair.

Pull off and put away the top blanket into a drawer. Then pull back the duvet and sheets and examine the bed and the sheets to make sure it looks clean then swipe with the 3. sanitizing wand across the sheets, duvet and the pillows. Then follow up with the 4. seventh generation disinfectant spray over the sheets, the pillows and the duvet. Spray well. We leave the bed sheet pulled back so the bed can air out and dry.

D. Backtrack: (about 2 minutes)

Finally my husband back tracks and wipes and rinses the kitchen sink, microwave, bathtub, toilet seat, bath sink with clean moistened paper towels then finishes up with wiping up the (5.) kitchen floor then bathroom floor with the wet rag underneath the bottom of his shoe. Tosses the rag into the trash along with any used wipes and paper towels. Then followup with the (6.) the seventh generation disinfectant spray all over the cleaned surfaces everywhere, even the curtains and into the air. And be sure to spray the phone if you plan to use it and turn off the air conditioner or heat for a few minutes and spray a little right into the vent.

E. Use Hotel Towels As A Barriers To Surfaces You Cannot Clean

Another thing to do is to always bring your own towels and wash cloths from home for showers so the hotel towels and wash cloths can be used as cushions/barriers over any dirty surfaces you cannot clean.

For instance spread out the bath towels on the floor or carpet beside the bed so your bare feet won’t touch on the dirty carpet or cold floors and keep your slippers beside the towel so you can step right into them and use the hand towels to cover fabric or leather chair seats. I always like to bring an old sheet with me to cover any sofa or furniture I’ll be sitting on.

And you can use the wash cloths to cover the night stands surfaces as you lay your phone, necklace, comb, brush, rings, etc and things on it. And I love to bring scented wax to place on a table or night stand.

In a total of 10 minutes or less and your done!

Other little obvious tips and warnings:

Wash your hands frequently with running water and soap! I cannot say this enough.

Leave your all your clothes zipped up in their suit cases. Keep your suit cases and bags zipped closed your entire stay. Never totally unpack and never put anything in the drawers. Unpack what you need to use only for that day. And put your dirty laundry in a good secure plastic bag tied close back into your suit case to wash when you get home or take to laundry.

Bring your own pillow is the first and best choice, if not spray the pillow with disinfectant spray and sit it in a sunny area for one hour turn it over and let it sit in sun for another hour (if you have to open the curtains to let the sun come in on the pillows then do so) then cover your pillow with a huge clean towel like a beach towel or bring an extra pillow case is what I do if I don’t bring my own pillow.

Bring your own bottle water or buy bottled water there, don’t ever drink from the tap because those faucets may not have been ever cleaned.

Wear flip flops or shower shoes in the shower never go bare feet in the shower or on the floor anywhere. Cover and protect your feet.

Never use the ice buckets, coffee pots, tea pots or dishes they provide in the hotel rooms. Your better off drinking the coffee or tea they provide in the buffet area or to bring your own or use their disposable Styrofoam cups, paper plates, drinking cups, plastic forks, knives and spoons and your own portable pots. This is the only way to know it’s sanitary and buy individual one serve coffee bags (they look like little tea bags) as I like to bring Folgers coffee bags in my purse.

I like to avoid hotel pools like the plague. I prefer my own private pool or swim in my own bathtub, rubber ducky and all. LOL!

Everyone has heard and seen on the news how some unfortunate soul winds up getting sick from staying in an unsanitary hotel while on vacation or on business. Some of the germs there cannot be seen with the naked eye and so you have to be very careful. Especially when you have a small family, children and the elderly because they cannot fight off those germs so easily.

Also I know some people don’t like using bleach and toxic chemicals but I feel in this case we are in a hotel that hundreds if not thousands of people have used and passed through and so I am not taking any chances with other peoples germs. We can and should be cleaning up our own germs and that is enough. Like I said these hotels are never totally clean and although they look pretty and look clean sometimes they are not. At home I can use less chemicals in cleaning but when out in public places I need some powerful stuff.

So even if you cannot bring every item on the list above of cleaning items at least try to tuck in your suit case at least three (3) out of the twelve (12) listed and that being the disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray and hand soap.

If I had to bring less I’d bring the disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray and hand soap where ever I go or I’m not going. You know some people even go as far as to bring a vacuum cleaner with them but I know how far to go and I won’t be taking things that far, hell if I have to bring a vacuum, then I might as well just stay home and not go anywhere near a hotel. LOL! I’m not doing that!

My husband takes our garbage to the dumpster outside the hotel everyday when we leave to go out.

Then you have someone saying well all of this defeats the purpose of staying in a hotel, you go to a hotel so you don’t have to do any work. Well in today’s world I feel you are taking a chance with your health and rolling the dice. There was a time when people used to really take time and clean hospitals and public places but everything is rush, rush and people are not being paid right and feel like they are not going to bust their behinds. Some are over worked and given too many rooms to clean within a certain time frame. So they take short cuts at our expense and also you never know who is carrying what disease. So I feel that taking out 10 minutes of our time to clean our hotel room is well worth the trouble if we want to stay well and not catch something and get sick or at least by doing this we reduce the chances of catching something because even this cleaning is not fool proof we are still in a public place. But I would rather try this little bit then not do anything at all or else I am back to choosing not to stay in a hotel at all.

Another idea or possibility is to hire a private house keeper to come in on day one to re clean your hotel room. Or bring your housekeeper with you on your trips and vacations if you can afford to do it. Some people bring friends with them on trips so instead bring your house keeper with you instead.

So one more tip is once home be sure to wipe down your suit case and ladies your bags! On the outside first then use another clean disinfectant wipe for the inside. And do your dirty laundry immediately of course.

~Be safe everyone!~

Come To Me…. My Eyes Are Looking For You

~~~

“Did you hear that, sir?” Mother says….

I have grown up now…

your gaze has bloomed my youth.

It’s been months now, how long” 

will you talk with your eyes?

“Once at least tell me,” Roopa you are my…

“I can say that… But, how can I?”

(she blushes and smiles to herself)

how can I say, I cannot say.

~Roopa (Mala Sinha)~

~Yab Yaad Kisi Ki Aati Hai~

~~~

~~~

It was love at first sight. In the beginning they’d never say a word to each other, there was only awe, silence and appreciation.

Dhunde tujhko nain deewaane aa ja aa ja rey

“Come to me, my eyes”

“are looking for you

~~~

~~~

They’d only gaze into each others eyes, letting their eyes do all the speaking, lovingly, as they sang their favorite lovely song to each other.

In naino ki pyas bhujhane aaja aaja rey

Come and quench the thirst

“of these eyes, come to me

~~~

The beautiful dreamy eyed Roopa (Mala Sinha) and the handsome Ravi (Dharmedra/Dharam Singh Deol) hardly could wait till the days they’d get to see each other again and again.

So as his train would roll into the station near her village, their signature song would ring out in harmony from their souls…. their voices, their song would reverberate through out the mountains, hillsides and the hilltops……. Dhunde tujhko nain deewaane aa ja aa ja rey.

He sings for her to come to meet him where he is as she sings for his arrival…. In naino ki pyas bhujhane aaja aaja rey.

But it seems she is too shy to let him know her true feelings for him and he finally writes in a letter to her that he loves her but is frustrated because it seems there is always someone around once his train arrives. And whenever they get to steal a few moments alone he can’t seem to find the words he wants to say as the words get all tangled up in the thoughts in his mind.

Yab Yaad Kisi Ki Aati Hai is a 1967 film starring the famous, beautiful and talented Mala Sinha as Roopa and the gentlemanly and talented Dharmedra as Ravi. So if you want to see romance at it’s finest, look no further, because the chemistry between Roopa and Ravi is super, super amazing and you will be truly mesmerized and enchanted by their affectionate loving ways.

I especially loved the music in this film, enticing me to watch this movie more than once. It seems so easy for their care and affection to be felt through their song “Dhoonden Tujh Ko Nain Deewane” as they both sing this song it works it’s way up into your soul.

Anyway, to explain a little further the story later brings out that there are two other men in love with Roopa although she only loves Ravi and wants no one other than him. One of her admirers is the ruthless landlord who manipulates Roopa’s mother into agreeing to have them married in order to pay off her debts to him and then there is Ravi’s older brother who loves him and knows deep down inside he is also harboring secret love for Roopa as well.

But as the story spins on you will come to know interestingly so who’s the one out of the three that wins Roopa’s love and hand in marriage.

I hope I peaked your interest in this movie that you feel you must take time to go watch it (Smile) because it’s a keeper in my book. This movie has become one more of my many favorite Hindi movies to love.

The Loyal Love Of A Man: Silsila (1981 Hindi Film) ~Versus~ Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka (2019 Serial)

the loyal man who loves me, who supported me for years

never lies to me, doesn’t cheat on me, doesn’t do anything behind my back,

he’s 100% my friend, 100% on my side, accepts my idiosyncrasies,

that’s really attractive to me

Silsila is this 1980’s romantic Hindi movie and I love how everything turns out for the characters by the end of the movie. So if you have yet to see this movie then I suggest you stop right here……. go watch it first because I don’t want to spoil it for you with the information I’ll be sharing about the movie and after you’ve watched it please come back and continue to read on.

Anyway Dr. V. K. Anand (Sanjeev Kumar) is that type of loyal, supportive, loving man that is healthy for almost every kind of woman. In this movie Dr. V. K. Anand is married to Chandi (Rekha/Bhanurekha Ganesan) and he absolutely loves her and adores her but then he sadly finds out his wife has started cheating on him with Amit Malhotra (Amitabh Bachchan) who by the way does an amazing performance in this movie.

~~~

Prior to Amit and Chandi’s marriages they knew each other and were madly in love and were about to be married but then something tragic happened. Amit’s brother Shekhar Malhotra (Shashi Kapoor) who was in love with Shobha (Jaya Bachchan) died while serving in the Indian air force and so Amit dutifully marry’s  Shobha (Jaya Bachchan) in order to save her dignity because she was with child/pregnant with Shekhar’s baby. And so Amit married Shobha instead of Chandi and he wrote Chandi a letter telling her to forget about him thereby breaking Chandi’s heart. Then Chandi’s family arranged for her to marry the doctor.

This movies title fits this story perfectly as Silsila means series of events. I really did enjoy watching this movie as it has such an amazing cast and is adorable, romantic and I loved how unexpectedly beautiful things turned out in the end. Although for some reason back in the 80’s this movie failed to be a huge box office draw but after watching it I can’t figure out why not. It was such a good and interesting one worth watching even in 2019.

~~~

Many years later in 2019 is the remake of the 1981 movie Silsila into a serial and it’s called Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka. In the serial Ishaan Khanna (Kinsuk Mahajan) is that type of loyal, supportive, loving man that is healthy for almost every kind of woman. He waits patiently for Mauli Malhotra (Aditi Sharma) to truly free herself from her ex husband Kunal Malhotra (Shaki Arora) who had an affair and fell in love with Mauli’s best friend Nandini (Drashi Dhami) in which they both ran off and got married after Kunal divorced Mauli.

~~~

Years later Kunal returns as he shows back up in India with the daughter Pari Malhotra (Arravya Sharma) he had with Nandini and after Nandini dies. Kunal had no idea that Mauli was indeed also pregnant and has a daughter by him named Mishti Malholtra (Maisha Dixit) after which he ran off with Nandini.

So both of Kunal’s daughters winds up becoming good friends not knowing at first that they are sisters as they met in the same school. So it’s through the girls that both families wind up crossing paths again. Then later on in the serial Kunal lost his memory and the Malhotra family and Pari do their best to persuade Mauli into moving back into Kunal’s home and that move devastates Ishaan and his mother because Mauli has to pretend to still be married to Kunal in an attempt to help him regain his memory so his health does not deteriorate. Kunal has forgotten that Ishaan and Mauli were a couple planing to be married.

This serial title fits this story perfectly as Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka means sequence of changing relationships. And so I enjoyed watching this serial so much so that I could not wait until the next days show came back on. But in the end Mauli and Ishaan came together joining as a family, but I didn’t like that their story ended so abruptly. I felt they could have extended it out a bit so you see Mauli and Ishaan’s love story in order for it to be a bit more gratifying to the viewers.

~~~

So it was so interesting to have watched both versions and to now compare both. It seems what sticks in the mind is the helplessness the couples felt in the midst of uncontrollable circumstances and how both stories have very different outcomes yet both women, Shobha and Mauli ended up being blessed to be with the most attractive men in that both men displayed amazing decency, care, affection, support, loyalty and love as they both had such beautiful souls. So I did love how both stories ended and can say I truly enjoyed both versions.

Prepping With Our Indoor Carbon Steel Camp Wood Burning Stove With Venting Pipes

~~~

“Best Portable Wood Camping Stove”

~~~

Wow it’s been very busy for us here lately. But now I’m back and giving an update on how we been prepping as inexpensively as possible. We’ve purchased many items in reference to the areas of heating and cooling which is a very important part of preparing.

So we needed to choose and buy a few items that’s not too expensive that we can use safely indoors for heating the home. It didn’t matter to us as to whether it is from propane, kerosene and/or wood, so we chose one item from each source.

Firstly we purchased two of a Carbon Steel Camp Wood Burning Stove which to my surprise was very inexpensive as we paid $135.00 for each one (with free shipping too) and so knowing that it will be here in our home for immediate use in a SHTF situation or just in case electricity goes out in the dead of winter like it did this past winter and this past winter we had some really cold days. I also like that we can even cook food on this stove and so I feel we are ready for almost anything when it comes to keeping the house warm. But what we really want and have our eyes on is a nice sized actual cast iron wood burning stove which will be our next purchase this winter hopefully. But for now I think this little Camp Wood Burning Stove will do…. as is a wise substitute for now and the fact that it can be used in any of the rooms in the house with a window well that idea pleases me a lot.

So the plan is to knock out one of the small glass window panes in the living room and cover that pane area with a cut to fit block of wood with a hole with metal sheeting big enough to run the metal venting pipe through it to the outside. And yes I know in no way will it be equivalent to a nice sized cast iron wood burning stove we planning to buy later but it will at least keep us covered for now just in case we find ourselves needing a substitute. The good thing about this little wood burning camp stove is that we could grab up some thick branches and chunky pieces of wood that is always lying around outdoors and in our woods and we won’t have to do so much work like chop down a huge tree in order to fill this stove for heating and cooking although it wouldn’t hurt if we did have some wood reserves ready, you just never know. We already know a cast iron stove would be so much better and holds heat longer than this carbon steel stove but until we can do better we will have to settle for second best for now and it’s a whole lot better than sitting in the house freezing our behinds off for not having anything at all if things take a bad turn beforehand.

We also purchased two other items to help keep us warm. We added to our stores a Big Buddy Portable Heater that uses propane and a Dura Heat Kerosene Heater as well.

I have to tell you that one winter we had to use the Dura Heat Kerosene Heater and got to witness that this thing really does kick out a lot of heat. Actually it did heat up the entire house really very well to our surprise. I tell you I am seeing that almost anything with a nice size flame generates a huge amount of heat. So I am glad that we only had to spend less than $100 a piece for the Big Buddy Heater and the Dura Heat Kerosene Heater. So for all three of these items I feel we did pretty good. But I do hope to go back and purchase a second one of each of theses two items just in case one gives out.

And now as far as keeping us cool this summer we are a little better equipped for the next time the lights go out during a storm. So we plan to use two of our 10 inch, O2 Cool Battery Operated Fans we purchased last summer. These two fans does help put out a nice flowing breeze throughout our bedroom or for in the kitchen while cooking meals as these helps a great deal in keeping it slightly cooler than having nothing at all. A lot of time when the lights go out we leave open the door so that a nice breeze flows through both screened front and back door. So it will work as far as helping to ease some of the discomfort through a hot summer no electricity night until we can get our lights restored and so we did stock up on a slew of extra batteries as well for them.

So tell me what is your plan as far as your heating and cooling your home in a SHTF situation? Are you ready for come what may yet?

may you have an amazing rest of your day.~

Let’s Have Tea & Chit Chat Over Some Blueberry & Mango Jelly Recipes

~I am sending a joyful weekend wish to you all.~

~~~

~~~

Well I had a taste for something sweet and homemade, so I made some easy blueberry and mango jelly and you would not believe how easy it is to make as it tastes so much more better then the jelly sold in stores, well to me it does any way. And while I was making the jelly I began thinking and wondering what’s the big hold up on the release of the movie “The Tomorrow Man” with John Lithgow as Ed Hemsler and Blythe Danner as Ronnie Meisner. The movie is due to come out on amazon videos and on DVD and so I just wished they would make all movies available to see from home instead of having to go to the movies theatre. I am just not a movie theater person. I do not feel theaters are safe anymore nor do I feel those places are sanitary enough for me. So I am impatiently waiting to see this amazing movie.

These two character personalities seems so intriguing and similar to my likes and hobbies. Why there’s three amazing topics in this movie…. romance, prepping and shopping all sandwiched up together.

On one hand you have him as he is a “doomsday prepper!” And then on the other hand you have her as she’s an incredible “shopaholic!” and then they enter into a romantic relationship. So this movie is right up my alley.

Just watching the trailer makes me want to see this movie more and more. I loved the scene in the trailer where Ed (John Lithgow) showed Ronnie (Blythe Danner) his hidden prepping room. I thought wow that was so cool. I like the idea that he created this hidden space in his home in a way that perhaps no one will ever know it’s there if he doesn’t tell them. It was so cool to watch as he opened the doorway to the room with the swipe of a magnet right outside on the side his home and then you get to see them as they walked inside. My first thought was the place was so organized and it inspires me to have a similar type of room for myself one day y’all. LOL!

The Tomorrow Man”

So this week we purchased a case of Underwood chicken spread and a couple of cans of their roast beef and corned beef spread along with a few boxes of various kinds of crackers. I tell you the cans look so tiny but you’d be surprised at how far each can goes, they go a long way in my opinion and they are kinda salty but so delicious.

I also ordered tons of jig saw puzzles for myself as they occupy my mind for a good while and I like that I will have plenty of them to be putting together over and over again in the future and perhaps for doomsday…. while awaiting for Christ’s return. (Smile) Also speaking of jig saw puzzles I just purchased the movie “Puzzle” with Irrfan Khan. I didn’t get a chance to watch it yet but heard it is a very good movie so if I like it I will post about after I see it.

~~~

~~~

Anyway….. lets get back to the recipe.

So I really do love this jelly especially on top of a bowl of sour cream. I love the combination of the sour and the sweet and the fact that sour cream is very low in carbohydrates. Also it tastes so good on biscuits, toast, croissants or in plain yogurt. I tell you that my husband is addicted to these jellies now and likes to have them on bread or toast first thing in the mornings with some juice and hot tea. So if you make it I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Blueberry And Mango Jelly Recipe

Ingredients for Blueberry Jelly:

2-3 cups of frozen Blueberries

1/3 to 1/2 cup of agave

1/2 large fresh squeezed lemon

~~~

~~~

Ingredients for Mango Jelly:

2-3 cups of frozen Mango Chunks (peeled)

1/3 to 1/2 cup of agave

1/2 large fresh squeezed lemon

½ teaspoon of cinnamon

½ teaspoon of pumpkin spice

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Utensils:

8 to 10 – 4 oz. Jelly Jars with lids and bands

Two 3 or 4 quart pans with lids

2 Large stirring spoons

Directions:

1. Put the blueberries in pan number one and the mango’s in pan number two.

2. Stir in 1/3 or ½ cup of agave to the blueberries and the other 1/3 or ½ a cup of agave to the mangoes (you can add more agave if you really want it super sweet but I think a half cup is more than enough because it seems agave is much more sweeter then white sugar and better for you to eat)

3. Next stir in 1/2 lemon juice to the blueberries and the other ½ of lemon juice to the mangoes.

5. Stir in the vanilla extract, cinnamon and pumpkin spice to the mangoes pot.

6. Stir each pot and cook on high till ingredients comes to a boil.

7. Then turn both pots flame down to a very low flame to simmer for around 12 to 20 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Once done you will see the mangoes and blueberries have broken down quite a bit and has a thicker consistency or syrupyness to them.

8. Next you’ll spoon in the mixtures from each pot into their separate jars. You should have 4 jars of blueberry jelly and 4 jars of mango jelly.

9. Next cover the jars with the lids then refrigerate up to 12 hours or overnight. Then there you have it. Jars of blueberries jelly and jars of mango jelly. They are ready to serve the next morning on some warm toasted crusty bread, croissants or biscuits or in a bowl of plain yogurt or as I like it in a bowl of creamy sour cream. (Smile)

*Important Note: So do make sure to be careful when jarring up the mixtures because those jars become very hot once you put the mixture in them. That’s why I prefer to place my jars on a flat tray or plate as I spoon the mixtures in the jars. Then all I have to do is transfer the plate or tray right into the fridge once I lid them up. So you want to make sure you have made enough room in the fridge to store them in there on the trays or plates overnight. I hope you enjoy them as we do.

Will The Mid West Flooding Cause Food Prices To Go Up & Skyrocket? On Prepping: Here’s What We Stocked Our Pantry With This Month

~~~

I just wanted to stop in again to quickly comment on what’s been going on with this devastating weather in some states and how it’s going to affect us really soon. I truly believe the price of food is going to sky rocket possibly within the next six months to a year so and it will be because of this extreme flooding situation in the Midwest (Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri) then add on the tariffs placed on Mexico and China the two places we get our food from. Need I say no more.

~~~

My husband and I have decided that we’d better double up on our groceries as we have stocked up once more on certain items while we still can before the prices shift. We have gotten lots of various cuts of beef although we aren’t huge beef eaters but we still like a steak every once in a while but don’t want to wait and have to over pay later. Then more canned goods like corn and mixed vegetable and soups and things like that. Also gotten a bunch of boxes of pasta meals. Then this week my husband picked up a few bags of flour and cornmeal. So we have been busy trying to beat what’s coming.

~~~

So yeah, I had been meaning to post about this issue as soon as it happened but been kinda busy. We have just gotten through our spring cleaning chores and now have taken on another big job. The cleaning out the pantry area. So we have a lot of things in there that can be transferred to the shed to make room for our haul. We cleaned the deep freezer to make room for the beef, chicken, flour and cereals we picked up this month.

~~~

I tell you I am feeling really sorry for those farmers who have lost so much to this weather and as a result they will not be able to do much as far as growing crops for a long while. People are talking about this all over social media. I believe all of this is going to hurt a many family a great deal and so I am praying that we all do the best we can as far as getting prepared and stocking up beforehand.

~~~

~thanks for stopping by my blog today and hope you have an amazing day!~
