A Couple Of Things

On the 22nd of this month I will be speaking at a preppers/homesteaders group here in North Texas on Rain Water Harvesting techniques and use. If anyone is close by and wants to attend you can email me. On the agenda will also be a couple more hot topics you don't want to miss.

This is funny right here;
Here is something you may not know about me, some would call me a "Germaphobe" because I cannot stand people not practicing good personal hygiene. In public I find myself aware of what I touch, people around me and potential hazard zones that will get me sick. For instance, in the public bathroom have you ever noticed when someone finishes and just leaves without washing? I do and I have to find a creative way to open the door without directly touching the door handle. You can call me a freak, but it's just one of those things, I don't want to touch your junk. Have you ever seen someone sneeze or cough in your direction without covering their face and you act like the matrix and like slow motion you dodge the mucus mist? I do.   
The reason I am telling you all this is because for the past couple of years I have not even caught the sniffles. I contribute this to my daily herbal intake and safe public handling. All that came crashing down last weekend. I have been so sick this week I could hardly get out of bed. I have not called in sick to work in over 10 years but I really wanted to this week. The good thing is I am on the rebound now.
Last Friday night I threw caution to the wind and touched too many areas without bathing in sanitizer afterwards. I know that's where I picked it up. The one time I chose to live like all the rest and I have paid for it. I think it's a little ironic.
If I could never leave the safety of my house I don't think I ever would.

One another note, I want to give a welcome to Melissa Small and livelaughlove for becoming the newest family members of Modern Day Redneck. If you need anything, my email is on the right side of the blog. Thanks for joining and again, welcome.  


  1. I know what you mean, sort of. I've never been overly concerned over much with touching stuff other folks have touched, but we tend to be a bit isolated. This winter we were just a little more social and we've been sick twice, and now I'm sneezy again! Might need to crawl back into my hole!

    1. Bard I know it sounds weird but for some reason I don't want to be around a bunch of sick people. Most are.

  2. Ugh that stinks, well glad you are on the rebound! My hubby and I always joke around that if we ever got irritated enough with the family we would take off and move somewhere in the mountains and become hermits, lol. Yeah we definitely aren't people persons.

    1. I know what you mean Coley, I don't do crowds.

  3. so glad you are feeling better let us know where your meeting is and we will go
