Simple, effective – and definitely a money saver, because you don’t have to toss loads of food unnecessarily.
Have you ever come home from vacation, business trip or maybe a weekend away with the family – and noticed your digital clocks flashing the wrong time?You quickly realize that you had a power outage while you were away, but it’s basically impossible to tell when it occurred or how long it lasted. It’s therefore also impossible to tell just how long the food in your freezer may have thawed, gotten destroyred, and then frozen again.
Or is it?
In connection with Hurricane Matthews which swept over parts of the United States, a woman named Sheila Pulanco Russell shared a clever trick on her Facebook wall with anyone who was forced to evacuate their home.
But the trick is certainly also good to know in case of any prolonged departure from your home – and will ease your mind about whether or not the food in your freezer is good to eat – or best be thrown out right away.
The trick lies in the magical combination of three simple but effective tools everyone already has at home: a mug, a coin and some tap water.
In a Facebook post which quickly received hundreds of thousands of reactions and shares, Sheila explains how to proceed. She writes:
Please share this nifty trick on to all your friends!
An NBC news report from 2013 claimed that Hillary Clinton, while secretary of state, shut down an investigation into an elite pedophile ring in State Department ranks in order to avoid scandal and protect the careers of high ranking officials and an ambassador.
Flashback to June 11th, 2013 when NBC was reporting real news.
The NBC investigation even provided internal State Department memos to back up claims of a massive Hillary Clinton elite pedophile ring cover-up.
Watching the video below is a little strange. It is a stark contrast to the way the Mainstream Media reports news today. Matt Lauer and Chuck Todd actually sound like they are reporting the news. Major media outlet reporting today has become nothing more than weaponized propaganda and a partisan extension of the Democrat party aimed at destroying Trump and his administration.
This video was posted back in 2013. I did some digging and it looks like they either didn’t make an article for it on the NBC news site or they removed it since it doesn’t follow their narrative now.
Excerpts From The Video
The Washington Examiner and Breitbart have both ran stories about the cover up at the State Department under Hillary Clinton.
The contents and the layout of this post have been updated to address Leftist and Never Trumpers claims that it is Fake News and Clickbait. They obviously never took the time to watch the video.
Yes foreign governments were involved in trying to influence our election. Here is a list.
A Muslim woman whines: I don’t feel safe in the United States wearing a headscarf with Trump as President.
Problem solved… Go back to your own country where they’ll stone you to death for not wearing it!

The Gulf Coast and East Coast have hurricanes, the Midwest and South have tornados, and the West Coast faces tsunami threats. No area of the country is without their own special brand of natural disaster to worry about. Earthquakes, however, span state lines, cross mountain ranges, and traverse climates. With the increased practice of deep wastewater disposal in the oil and gas industry, even the typically stable Midwest and central areas of the country are seeing an exponential rise in the number of earthquakes strong enough to get your house shaking (e.g., before 2009 there were an average of two magnitude 3+ earthquakes in Oklahoma; last year there were 907).
Surviving an earthquake starts far before the tremors begin, with careful preparation and planning. You should have enough food and water (a gallon per person per day) to last a minimum of three days, and communicate to friends and family where to meet and how to contact each other after an earthquake, assuming phone lines and electricity are down. Finally, take time to go through your house and secure tall, heavy pieces of furniture and appliances that might topple over. After an earthquake, be prepared to experience powerful aftershocks, and try to get to an open area as soon as it’s safe to do so. During an earthquake, the best survival techniques depend on your surroundings, so heed the tips above.
