Keep up the good work - just saw your video on LDS Preparedness.
I learned somethings, but want to make a couple of comments.

Flour should be rotated and not stored for more than two years. Flour can (not always) harbor a fungus that is toxic. By toxic I mean deadly if ingested in sufficient quanity. I know I have probably stored flour for more than two years in the past, and I believe in miracles. I just want you and your family to be safe. I learned about this some time ago and don't recall the name of the fungus.

Wheat is not a complete protein. Generally you get a complete protein by combining grains with legumes. I don't know if wheat combined with milk is a complete protein.

I'm still learning some of this, but I have been working on reducing meat in my diet so have been working at understanding protein issues.

I've been trying to use the free trail for the past few days, but just can't log in. Am I the only one having trouble? I feel so dumb.

I am sorry you have been having a hard time with the free trial. Make sure that when you type in the password you do not put a space between the free and trial (freetrial). I just tried logging in with that information and it worked. Feel free to email me if you continue to have problems and I can email you this weeks deals and meal planner. THanks!

**About the flour going bad after a couple of years...If you live in a humid part of the U.S. and your home is prone to mold or mildew, you will want to be careful storing a lot of flour and/or pancake mixes. However, if you live in Utah in a dry climate, in a newer home with no mold issues, you should be fine. I know there are people all over the U.S. who are using flour that is more than 2 years old and they are fine (I have flour that is over 5 years old in my basement that tastes perfectly fine). Just be wise and if your storing conditions are prone to mold or spores, then be cautious to how you store your food storage :)

I, too, have had difficulty using the free trial.

After the free trial, is there an automatic charge?

BTW, question on the 55-gallon water drums.

I see you have stuff stored on top of them. How much weight can these barrels bear?

I was thinking of putting a wooden I-beam across the top of two 55-gal barrels and stacking 2 wheat 5-gallon buckets on the ends of the beam, and then putting another beam on top of those buckets. I would then store filled 5-gallon water containers on each of those 2 shelves.

Do you think these barrels can handle the weight?

Oops, never mind. I found the answer here:

Thanks for all you do. You inspire!
