Store grain and more safely

I wanted to share a method that my grandmother passed on to us:

In grain, flour, castings, dried fruit, etc. to be stored, simply add several dried (!) 🌶 hot chillies, black peppercorns and if necessary also a few bay leaves along with them….

Beetles and moths are reliably kept away by this 👍🏼.

Transferring contents from other places

I wrote quite some articles on various blogs and those I will transfer with their original date to this website to make sure they will “survive” if one of those places vanish in the dark – it already happened more than once and there come the day when “enough is enough”. So please do not wonder if you find old blogs around that were created well before the setup of this website.

Translating this website

Well, I decided to go for a managed WordPress website. There is a moment, when you have to decide if you want to care about the back-end yourself or if you want to concentrate on contents. The decision was not easy, since I would have preferred Drupal to some extent for it’s great localization tools. WordPress does not offer similar free tools and often the plugins are backed with machine translation, which is somewhat useless for me.

It will be fun to see this site develop. I will use categories for the various languages. This is very much working “old style html” without needing to write code.

Let’s see how this is going to work out.

Quotes by Nicola Tesla

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.

The gift of mental power comes from God, Devine Being, and if we concentrate our mind on that truth, we become in tune with this great power.

Quotes by Vandana Shiva

For me, food sovereignty is sovereignty over your life, livelihood and health. We are interconnected, therefore food sovereignty is an ecological process of co-creation with other lifeforms. It begins with seed sovereignty: saving and using living seeds. It involves care for the land and soil. We cannot have food sovereignty if we do not feed the soil organisms. Food sovereignty is based on organic farming and avoiding chemicals and poisons. Food sovereignty includes knowledge sovereignty, economic sovereignty and political sovereignty.
