Why Do We Have To Have A Lot Of Things?

Well, my Hubbies family has been a round a lot the last 2 weeks since his brother died. And what have they all been saying. That we do not have anything!! They wonder why we don't have a huge tv and why we don't have cable. Oh well! So what , if our tv is about 20 years old and not hdtv. Why do we need cable? We have a roku and get our tv viewing through that for $7.99 a month for Netflix. Our car is "old" in their eyes. But , it is paid off! We are happier since we have gotten our bills in order and control. We only have our utility bills. Nothing else. I asked my hubbies nephew what bills he had each month and he listed so many and then went on to complain about his paycheck being gone before he even gets it! By time he got done he was depressed.  He said that a lot of it goes to bank fees. We are so happy that we got out of the banking system. Took us about a year , but not having fees is so much better! Everyone needs to get their priorities in order. Is having a 55 inch plasma tv going to make you happy? Is having a new car with a huge payment going to make you happy? It did take us a long time to get the old ideas of having more and bigger and newer than your neighbor out of our thoughts. Now we know that having a happy, HEALTHY,  and prepared family is more important than ANYTHING!

Symptoms Of Ebola & How Is It Spread

Some useful Information.

Ebola spreads in the community through human-to-human transmission, with infection resulting from direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected people, and indirect contact with environments contaminated with such fluids.
Symptoms of the disease can start to show from two days after infection, but this can take up to 21 days. People are contagious for as long as their blood and other bodily fluids contain Ebola.
For the most part, early symptoms are similar to diseases like malaria and cholera, as well as the flu, which can mean the disease can be difficult to detect.

Symptoms of Ebola HF typically include:
  • Fever.
  • Headache.
  • Joint and muscle aches.
  • Weakness.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Vomiting.
  • Stomach pain.
  • Lack of appetite.
  • sore throat
  • rash
  •  Internal and external bleeding from the nose, mouth, ears and eyes
  • Reduced liver and kidney function
  • Trouble breathing
  • Bruising

What is Ebola and Why Should We Care?

What is Ebola and Why Should We Care?

 



I am not sure why when I first saw the story about Ebola a couple of weeks ago it bothered me , but it did and for some reason I really think that we are not hearing the whole story. I just read also that they have shut Liberia's borders. ? That is scary! I really am watching this story. Especially with all of the illegal aliens coming into America. This could get bad fast! They are already bringing in TB and other things.

The Fiscal Cliff Cookbook - Eat Reasonably Well During The Apocalypse - With Social Commentary Cliff Notes

The Fiscal Cliff Cookbook - Eat Reasonably Well During The Apocalypse - With Social Commentary Cliff Notes was a free kindle book when this post was written.

Political satire, humor, essay, and cookbook. The Fiscal Cliff Cookbook is the world's greatest FISCAL CLIFF SOUVENIR and fusion cookbook of political satire and recipes. LIMITED TIME ONLY, just like the fiscal cliff itself?

Fiscal cliff this, budget deal that. We all could use a reasonably good meal and a few laughs.

(excerpt from The Fiscal Cliff Cookbook by Stephen R. Winter)

Catastrophic Default Pork And Beans

(If the future does not fare well, this recipe may in time become Catastrophic Default Beans.)

Pork and beans are a classic American dish. I picture hobos enjoying the fresh air while opening a can of pork and beans as their legs hang off a freight train box car.

Well that is a more pleasant thought than catastrophic anything else.

The numbers and adjectives being spoken by the faces on television are significant. Yet they are being repeated until we are all numb.
If this was a hurricane en route, people in the subject area would be implored to evacuate. But this is a moneycane, and this is home.

When we are blank in response to the word catastrophic; when we are unmoved by the officialized threat of the worst that all but the oldest among us have lived; when every night we look at our beautiful flat high definition television sets, and are told in beautiful, flat, high definition, that financial hell is coming, and none of us will find out how true that is until we are standing in it; when we are hammered with very real crap like this, every day, AS WE ARE, and then go to sleep as if it was all just a television show, then the question ought be asked, “what time would you like to be woken up?”

Oh, yeah, here’s a recipe for Catastrophic Default Pork And Beans.

Catastrophic Default Pork And Beans

Ingredients:

1. Boneless whole pork loin roast, approximately 3 pounds.
2. Canned pork and beans, approximately 45 ounces.
3. 1 large sweet onion.
4. 2 cups barbecue sauce.
5. ½ cup brown sugar.
6. 2 garlic cloves chopped up.

How To Cook It:

1. Cut the pork roast in half and place in a slow cooker.
2. Cut the onion into medium thin slices and place over the pork roast.
3. Mix the canned pork and beans, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, and garlic cloves in a bowl.
4. Pour the mix from the bowl over the pork roast.
5. Cover and cook for 7 hours on low.
6. Take the roast out and shred it.
7. Put the roast back in the slow cooker for 1 hour.
8. Step 8 is eating.

Please note that although pork and beans is often enjoyed with corn bread, this is Catastrophic Default Pork And Beans, thus the corn bread is left out.

12 DIY Cheap Wood Burning Stoves & Heater Tutorials — Homestead and Survival

12 DIY Cheap Wood Burning Stoves & Heater Tutorials — Homestead and Survival





Great  ideas and potential money savers. Wood stoves would be the best way to keep having heat in a shtf situation. I love wood burning stoves , but they can be expensive, so being able to make one for your family to use is a super idea.

SURVIVE Infinite Dangers -- The Family Survival Guide of 21st Century Dangers

SURVIVE Infinite Dangers -- The Family Survival Guide of 21st Century Dangers was a free book for kindle when this post was written.


 FINALLY, a ‘survivalist” book written for the average suburbanite whose most dangerous task in life until now has been doing battle with crab grass. This book is not meant for the experienced outdoors type who enjoys solitary months “living off the land” in the backwoods of Alaska but, instead, is meant for people who are more at home at “camp Marriott”; someone who enjoys a walk in the park followed by a few hours in a hot tub. The author fits that description so this book was easy to write from first-person experience! You will not find instructions on which bug parts are edible or how to live in a dirt dug-out cave for a few years.

Most people just want to know (1) “what are these “dangers” in SIMPLE terms and (2) how do I best protect my family and others who join my group? You want information to tell you which disasters are not worth worrying about (that the media just scares viewers with for ratings) and which ones may be world changing. You won’t remember everything you read in this book but, keeping it handy, you will have a quick reference guide when a bulletin appears on a TV or radio station with “important information”. It could be anything from something that may lead to your life totally changing to something that won’t even be in the newspaper tomorrow. But you’ll probably have no idea as newscasters seem to love to repeat long scientific words given them by their producers. They also have no idea if it is important or not but they know to make it sound important!

People don’t want to spend hundreds of hours reading becoming an expert on every subject these media “talking heads” banter about. You don’t need to! You have no idea and you really don’t care. I’ve done all that for you in this book. All of these newly invented man-made “Infinite Dangers” that are easy to protect against make up at least 95% of the man-made dangers that didn’t exist twenty or even ten years ago. What exactly is “Infinite Dangers? Simple! Anything seriously dangerous to you and your family and/or group as well as a community, city, state, country or even the world! While the author is not an expert in survivalism, the information contained in this book comes from many expert sources and has been reviewed by experts for completeness and accuracy.

This book is more like 5,000 pages in length. Maybe even 50,000 if you count the contents of ALL the Web sites mentioned. No, that is not a typo. You’ll notice extensive mentions of Web sites. Why waste paper in this book to convey knowledge that is already extensively covered within many Internet sites. The Web sites referenced convey far more information than I could ever write in this book. They provide more detail and more information than I could jam into this book unless you want to buy a 5,000 page book printed in very small type. In fact, this book could be a six page list of small type Web sites except you wouldn’t know which sites are most important and you wouldn’t know what to do with the information. Thus, consider this your “reference book” that either has the information you need within this book, Web addresses of the sites that have the needed information or titles of other books you may wish to buy.

Unlike many books on the subject of surviving and living through disasters from minor short-term local ones to worldwide long-term disasters near the stage of Armageddon, this book does not divide chapters into specific disasters (both by nature and manmade) such as earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, terrorist attacks, nuclear radiation, pandemics, anarchy and a hundred other specific dangers but, instead, assumes that 90% of preparation and survival of all disasters is essentially the same. It does not waste time repeating the same information chapter after chapter. IF YOU PREPARED FOR EVERYTHING, YOU ARE PREPARED FOR ANYTHING.

Beginner Soap Making: Simple Homemade Recipes

Beginner Soap Making: Simple Homemade Recipes was a free book for the kindle when this post was written.

Getting Prepped For Winter Already!

I bought one of these, Portable Military Camping Steel Wood Stove Tent Heater for Fishing Camp Cooking, a few weeks ago.We haven't had a chance to put it together yet. Hubby hasn't been home enough. But, I did read the reviews and they say to burn it real hot outside to get the paint off. I just wanted this for a really bad emergency. Our winter was so so so so so so so bad last winter. We were stuck in our house for a few weeks and we could not even move our car! We really wanted to move , but it looks like we will be here another damn winter in the house and I wanted something. If our power goes out and we get frozen in again , we will have something! This even has a cooking area made on the top of it. Plus , the factor that my frugal hubby loved, was it was cheap. We had had a chance to buy a wood burning stove last year for $75.00 , but when I went to pick it up , the woman's husband was home and said that she was not supposed to sell it. That he was keeping it to put in their basement. I couldn't blame him. This little stove would work great in our little house. I have watched videos on youtube of people using this stove in tiny houses.

Stay Cool!

My hubby is always finding some really cool things at truck stops. This past week he got a few of these, BodyCool Neck Buddys .These are so neat. You put them in cool water for about 30 minutes and then can wrap around your neck to keep cool. Really a good idea for off-grid, hiking, camping, and yard work. A real good use for these is for minor sprains and even headaches. They are non-toxic and are reusable for years. No refrigeration needed for this either. Find a cool stream while camping, hiking, biking , etc and cool down.

 It's a beautiful sunny day in Southern California. Ben Harrington is arriving at work where he is project manager at a local nuclear power plant. He and his pregnant wife, Sara, live nearby. All is well until the unexpected happens. Suddenly the plant starts to roll and shake. What could NEVER happen.....does happen.

3 - Costs & Considerations: How much does it cost to set up at rabbitry, and what could be  the profitability of such an exercise?

Subjects covered include the numbers to be expected over a 1 year period, as well as start-up costs for 1 Buck and 3 Does using the New Zealand White rabbit a an example.


4 - Killing & Butchering: If you are raising your animals for meat, then information on how to dispatch your rabbit cleanly and efficiently is absolutely essential. Here are details on just how to achieve this with minimal stress to the animal, as well as how to dress or prepare the carcase.

Herbal First Aid

Herbal First Aid was a free kindle book when this post was written. In this Book, you will learn how to prepare a simple herbal first aid kit for common emergencies. In addition you will learn how to prepare the herbs that are in ointments, oils and teas and you will learn what they are good for.

Herbal medicine is the great-great-grandmother of medicine. It is the body of medical knowledge that has been passed down from generation to generation since the early days of humanity. It is the use of simple, whole plants, complete in their natural balance of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and active ingredients.

The human body in good working order is a natural balance of all the elements found in the earth and the plants that live on the earth. The common dandelion, for instance, has a composition of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and active ingredients almost identical to the human liver. As a remedy, the dandelion answers the needs of every liver complaint or imbalance you can name. A number of doctors refer their hepatitis patients to me because they have seen the results of dandelion in action. After three weeks of dandelion tincture treatment (ten drops taken four times daily), my hepatitis patients are well enough to go out dancing.

It is a truth that stands to reason that the nearer we stay to the whole and natural balance of the earth and its plants, the nearer we are to our own natural balance, which we experience as health.

Herbal medicine is accessible and effective. You don't need to be a scientist to know that marigold (calendula) is antiseptic. You simply have to put it on a festering wound and watch the wound heal within twelve hours. It may be simple, but it is as effective as any and more effective than most of the chemical equivalents. You don't have to be a technician to prepare a cup of herbal tea or a poultice. Herbal medicine is the medicine of the people, and despite the sophistication of modern western medicine, it is still the preferred medicine of 90 percent of the world's population.

An herbalist today has a much wider choice of remedies than the ancient herbalists thanks to the travellers over the ages who consciously or unconsciously carried with them the seeds of their native foliage. The humble plantain is called Englishman's Foot because it sprouted wherever the English stepped. Such instances have caused ecological disasters within delicate ecosystems, but they do give herb gatherers a wide variety.

No medicine chest would be large enough to house a complete herbal pharmacy. This book is a selection of a small number of herbs that most effectively treat the widest possible range of common emergencies and are readily available from health food stores, herbal pharmacies, and natural food stores in the forms described. The purpose of this book is a practical one: to fill in the gaps of information found in most popular herbals. What is the benefit of knowing that chamomile is good for the eyes if you don't know how to prepare it and how to use it?

THE COMPLETE ZOMBIE WORLD TRILOGY (THE ZOMBIE WORLD ORDER SERIES)

THE COMPLETE ZOMBIE WORLD TRILOGY (THE ZOMBIE WORLD ORDER SERIES) was a free kindle book when this post was written. Welcome to the world of the Zombie World Order Trilogy, where the evil masters of The New World Order manipulate the masses through terror and psy-ops designed to reduce the American People into abject submission.

This is the complete Zombie World Order Trilogy,contained in one book, containing Part One, Two, and Three, with new illustrations.

In Part One, The Zombie World Order, total strangers are thrown together into apocalyptic mayhem to test a bizarre form of psychotherapy. Everything they have is to be burned away in the hope they will be left with the will to survive.

Suicidal and ravaged patients from a rehab are forced to participate in a reality show gone wild, ostensibly meant to document their recovery, in reality meant to publicize their horrifying deaths.

In an Orwellian acid trip, shadow government controlled hordes of Zombies are systematically unleashed upon the East Coast of America by the would-be destroyers of The American Constitution.

Only one person understands the true nature of this evil--Marie, the persecuted daughter of one of the conspirators. Using only her wits, courage, and sawed-off shotgun, Marie must lead the tattered remnants of America in the fight against a Zombie World Order.

In Part Two, Dead To Rights, Marie and her band of battered survivors again must battle an implacable foe, with their very lives staked on the outcome.

From the mountains of Afghanistan to the Capitol Mall in Washington D.C., Marie and her troubled band of misfits confront an insidious plot to create a New World Order Empire using Zombies as change-agents.
