pathetic rhetoric and soapmaking

After Warsaw and Washington announced the agreement on the deal last week, top Russian Gen. Anatoly Nogovitsyn warned that Poland is risking attack, and possibly a nuclear one, by deploying the American missile defense system, Russia's Interfax news agency reported.

Poles have been shaken by the threats, but NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop dismissed them Tuesday as "pathetic rhetoric."

"It is unhelpful and it leads nowhere," he told reporters at a NATO meeting in Brussels, Belgium.

Why do they not see the threat? It is right there, breathing down our necks. Who cares if the Russian army is not totally at level with the US...we can't win a war where the army/seperatist/insurgents are at a level far below. That is where the threat lies folks.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against the Polish missile base. The Poles want it, the guberment gave it. But to dismiss the threats of a country whose military most closely rivals our own is stupid. Especially considering the bear has shown that it is quite willing to bite.



Okay, rant over. On to prepping. Or crafting. Or maybe just enabling.

In light of Wretha's asking me earlier this week about soapmaking, I went in search of info. Just google soapmaking, you'll see what I dug through until I went cross-eyed. I did find a site that is quite interesting, complete with supplies and formulas. I won't be able to order from them for a bit, so can't comment on customer service, shipping and what not, but they look to be pretty well versed in the subject. Plus it is a small company, I like to support those puppies when I can. Be sure to check it out when you have plenty of time on your hands:

I've also been digging for quality essential oils. Found a good place to get oils, herbs and most importantly herb seeds so I can grow my own everything. Now that is sufficiency. Check out this one:

Now, I'm off to start on tomorrow's bread...ga nite!
