    Hi Carol. The problems that Invision had RE: our old forum have been resolved and I have managed to get back into Admin there an dig up your items for self sustainability. I a;ways find threads like that are invaluble so thaks for your effort for posting them and I bring them here now for the benefit of our members.
    There was no conspiracy with Invision by the way just a long ongoing dispute with their hosters that effected all their forums and not just our old Mists.
    Anyway..on with the show..

    I personally consider the following items essential for self-sustainability.
    1. Vitamins and Minerals @ www.swansonvitamins.com .
    They
    have really reasonable prices and I order a lot of Vitamin D3. Vitamin
    D will help us avoid the flu as it improves the immune system.

    2. Inexpensive Rare Heirloom vegetable seeds
    Carol's Thread from The old Forum on Items for Self Sustainability Dscf0526
    Non
    GMO and Hybrid seeds are full of nutrition... GMO and Hybrid are not
    and I've read some studies how GMO also alters the blood of those eating
    those food. Organic will become a very highly prized item to have and
    to eat.

    We
    are on a catchment system but many get water with flouride or choline
    in it with is is not good for anyone's body. All of our drinking water
    is filtered.

    Elements will remove harmful pathogenic bacteria
    such as E-coli, Cholera Salmonella Typhi, Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
    The filters remove and reduce unwanted chemicals such as Chlorine, lead,
    rust, sediment, pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, VOC’s, SOC’s,
    Trihalomethanes and foul tastes and odors. The durable and efficient
    Black Berkey elements can be cleaned and re-cleaned (up to 100 times or
    more) as needed with a soft brush or Scotch-Brite pad.

    This is a small and easy measure to take for that day, should it come,
    when water supplies are disrupted. We have a small outdoor swimspa and
    we can use that water for flushing toilets but I have started keeping 8"
    or so of water in the bathtub at all times. That can provide a lot of
    drinking water and not take up additional space. The vessel is already
    there, why not use it. When it's time to take a bathe I just had hot
    water. That way the water is not wasted.

    If you have a top loading washing machine you could do the same thing. Keep it full of water.

    I'm
    now scratching my head to try and figure a way to use the gray water
    from baths and clothes washing for the flowers but, without busting out a
    wall and diverting the water from the drain pipes I don't know how I'm
    going to accomplish that one. I'm still working on it though. Maybe I
    could pump it into some type of holding tank.

    I was watching HGTV
    the other day and this couple was considering buying a house (this was
    in Australia) and the house had a rain capturing system installed. This
    wasn't a make-shift operation it was professionally installed. These
    huge plastic tanks, maybe 8-9 ft. tall were installed right next to the
    house. They weren't round but were flat on the back and then gently
    rounded like the shape of a football in the front. A very compact and
    neat operation. They had about 6 tanks all together. That's a lot of
    water and it was used to water all the outdoor plants and lawn.
