    Hi Ethan, if you're filling your posts with crimes taking place in London you're going to be typing night and day. Good luck with that;)

    Hello ystrance :)

    I have decided to take it slowly so we may take our time with each one.

    slowly is always best.
    remember prepping is like insurance, we hope we don't need it but we are glad we have got it when we do.

    I will take it seriously. Have you ever watched an animated cartoon called 'Where the Wind Blows'?

    'When the Wind Blows' is about a couple who are preparing for a fallout and they are alerted over the radio and left to fend for themselves after it happens. SHTF.

    It's quite a good watch - I remember it well. Don't be put off by it being a cartoon, Vigilance is quite right in his assessment of it :)

    it must have been 25 to 30 years ago when I seen it. And it only took one look at the cartoon image on the link to jog my memory. Very powerful indeed. Knowledge and awareness comes from many sources...this one including...

    but did you take anything away from it? or was it just that-a good story.

    It was a rather depressing cartoon that emphasised the pathetic nature of our government's preparations, advice and ability to help after an event. I prefer Wallace and Gromit's a grand day out.

    It opened my eyes LoneWolf. I found it scary what the real world could become in little time of notice.

    I also learned that there may be hope too.

    It feels like the watching the human 'Watership Down' without an adventure element.

    my parents lived through WW2 as did wife's parents, wife's parents moved from Leeds in the late 1940s to an off grid cottage in East Devon because they thought there would be a nuclear war with the then Soviet union, as a lot of people did back then.
