By Karen D'Souza | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: September 9, 2018 at 6:00 am | UPDATED: September 10, 2018 at 5:30 am Michael Skyler has devoted his life to disaster preparedness. He founded the Disaster Supply Center, a store that specializes in survival kits and gear. He has run the business with his wife, Mona, for 23 years. One thing that always frustrated him was how hard it was to get people to take survival preparedness seriously. Not anymore. “Back then, people weren’t so concerned. Now it’s in the news daily. Earthquakes, fires, shootings, global warming. The frequency of the disasters here and across the world has gotten people aware, and they are starting to act on that awareness,” says Skyler, who is in his 70s and lives in San Rafael. “You realize it can happen to you. The more you can do to be off the grid, the better off you’ll be.” Amid escalating threats of natural disasters, and in a … [Read more...] about California wildfires fuel fears about how to prepare for a disaster
The Detroit News Published 3:45 p.m. UTC Jun 24, 2018 A late goal by Brogan Shrimpton kept Detroit City FC's faint playoff hopes flickering in a 1-1 draw Saturday against Kalamazoo FC at Keyworth Stadium. The National Premier Soccer League match before 6,128 spectators got off to an abysmal start for DCFC, who quickly found itself facing a 1-0 deficit when Kalamazoo defender Jordan Veillette buried a shot off a corner kick in the first minute. Le Rouge had several scoring chances late in the first half and throughout the second half, but couldn't find the equalizer. DCFC finally broke through in the 84th minute when Shrimpton chipped a shot past Kalamazoo keeper Hasten Biddlecome. DCFC nearly took the lead twice in the waning minutes, only to be denied both times. Rafa Mentzingen's goal in the 89th minute was waived off by an offside and a header off a corner kick in stoppage time bounced off the crossbar. The result leaves DCFC (4-3-2, 14 points) … [Read more...] about Draw puts DCFC’s playoff hopes on life support
My mother had a saying that more divorces start over hanging drapes than any other subject. I thought about that a few months ago when I decided to try a new window treatment for the bedroom.For years, the window had sported a pair of putty-colored Kmart drapes. Had the store still been having their flashing Blue Light Specials, those babies would have been Exhibit A.It’s not that they were so ugly. It’s just that they were blah – and too skinny. Stretched to their full width while jury-rigged to a traverse rod, they still didn’t meet in the middle. Our window is 80 inches wide. There is no such thing as an 80-inch wide pair of ready-made drapes.After a lot of looking, I found replacements: a quartet of softly draping panels that would fit on a tension rod. They’re the kind that stays in place without brackets.First I checked online. There were about 632 to choose from. None would fit our window.Then we went local for a couple of weeks. Perhaps you ran … [Read more...] about Hanging curtains is a test to any marriage.
