I think this topic should go PREPAREDNESS - Survival Manuals & Books.
I'd move these posts there but i don't know how (or if i can).
survival database
location, civilisation reboot, PERMACULTURE, postcataclysmic soil, Growing Soil 1.01

I agree with Socrates, that would facilitate further timely discussions, but also don't know how to move it. :)

Yes, will gladly do some in-depth skimming and see what I can come up with, especially for this subject area.  But will wait to see if we can figure out this thing about  moving to the other area.

 Should we just each "copy" whatever book info. we've already posted here, and then "paste" it to the PREPAREDNESS-Survival Manuals & Books? 
Then any further posting of book info that is relevant to survival and preparedness would/should go there, instead of here.

Here is what we need!  ;D

Incredible 'protein reactors' create food from electricity and carbon dioxide in a breakthrough that could help solve world hunger
 Food is created using merely energy from solar panels and freely available CO2

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4745666/Protein-powder-created-just-CO2-electricity.html

It may not taste great, but scientists have managed to create basic protein meals using carbon dioxide and electricity.   

Researchers hope that the protein-rich food could one day be used aboard long-haul spaceflights or to alleviate famine in poorer parts of the world.

The powdered food, which is created using energy from solar panels and freely available CO2, could also be fed to livestock to help free up more farming land.

This reminds me of a Keshe technique re: what he has termed GANS.

So, if offered either a worm or a heaping helping of electrically charged CO2, I wonder which one a chicken would go after? :)

Reverting back to the grain mill conversation a couple of months ago on this thread, I found a compromise between Ilinda's most expensive Country Living mill of just under $500 and the cheap Corona (which looks like a decent backup): 

Here's an Ohio-made one (I assume by the Amish) for around $100 that uses crusher rollers rather than burrs, and bolts down to a workbench rather than using a clamp.  It can hold 10# at one time.  I got one and there's still one left for sale on Ebay, though there are similar ones without the wooden handle:

Thanks, R.R. for posting this. I trust the Amish to put out a good product.
Long term, it would be good to purchase both and have on hand.

It looks very promising.  Does eBay still require PayPal?  After my identity was stolen, paypal never accepts my credit card, no matter what I tell them.  Several other vendors won't take it either, so it's possible that the taint from ID theft is carried for years by the victim.

But many places including Amazon do take my cc.  The grinder looks like a really good back up or first choice in grinding grains, as it holds 10#.  Great!

Finally someone is getting with the program ..

Bug Burgers Are Coming to Swiss Stores

http://www.blacklistednews.com/Bug_Burgers_Are_Coming_to_Swiss_Stores/60339/0/38/38/Y/M.html

Swiss shoppers will soon get the chance to buy burger patties and meatballs made out of beetle larvae as supermarket chain Coop tests consumers’ appetite for less-common alternatives to beef and pork.

The mealworm burger patties, which also contain rice, carrots and spices such as oregano and chili, will cost 8.95 francs ($9.24) for a pack of two, spokesman Urs Meier said by phone. The bug balls will sell at the same price for a pack of 10, and both products hit shelves of select stores on Aug. 21.

“These products are perfectly suited for those who want to learn about the culinary diversity of insects,” Coop procurement manager Silvio Baselgia said in a statement. Coop suggests eating the insect balls in pita bread with fresh vegetables and smothered in yogurt sauce.

Alternative scenario:

Get hen.

Feed bugs to hen.

Eat eggs.

Your method, R.R., sounds appealing--no excess processing.
