A couple of times each month I get a phone call from some sincere sounding guy who wants me to donate to a police/firefighter fund. I usually just hang up on them. But this time I let him get through his script that ends with him telling me I can donate whatever amount I want.
So this time I asked if I could just donate to my local police. He didn't seem to like that idea. So I said that my uncle and my cousin were both officers on our local police force and it would be much more convenient for me to just write a check and give it to my uncle. (He lied to me so I lied to him.) The caller didn't like that idea either.
I spent another few minutes coming up with ways to avoid sending him any money until he finally hung up on me. Made my day!
More serious information will follow in a day or two. Right now I have broccoli in the dehydrator. I have a couple of experiments I want to try involving dehydrating cooked pasta and rice. So when that is done, I will be back with the results.
Keep on prepping!
