I'm always getting asked "when will you make more preparedness videos?". Well today I was working on that and I found that there were some videos that I made but that I never published for some dumb reason! Doh!! (Although it's certainly not the most earth shattering worthy video I ever posted. Perhaps that's why it was missed by me...or it could be that I made it right before I moved into the RV. Oh well. Here it is nonetheless.) In this video I just share a simple little tip that I use to...
Zaycon Fresh's Patio Steaks--Fail

It’s Zaycon Fresh time for me again. I’ve got FRESH, hormone and anti-biotic meat coming to me over the next 3 months.  I’ve canned plenty of their chicken breasts, bacon, sausage and ground beef, so nowadays I like to put some up in my freezer—especially the ground beef.  However, I was getting pretty darn frustrated by all of the wasted space I was creating the way that I used to do it, so I figured out a better way to break down those 40 pound boxes of ground beef that come in these large...
No fail pie crust

A great pie crust recipe is a must. But I've been on a quest to find a good recipe that I can make without my food processor in the event I ever need to.  So, I've finally found one that I've made enough times to KNOW that I love it. So I thought I'd share it with you all.  By the way, I've made two pies this past week in my solar oven even though it's been cold. As long as I have good sunlight for a couple of hours, the solar oven still does a beautiful job!!  Enjoy!!! No Fail Pie Crust--No...
food storage mistakes

I hate to break it to you, but it’s very likely that you’ve rendered your food storage completely useless by ignoring this one, critical consideration. So take a deep breath…be ready to learn… and then repent. *grin*   If you know nothing else about me, know this: I believe wholeheartedly in approaching preparedness with an “everyday focus”.  I believe firmly that if you prepare for the everyday types of scenarios, then you’ll be prepared for the more extreme crises scenarios that may come up...

What better way to come back from a prolonged sabbatical than with a review of a really cool product AND giving away 4 of these awesome RZ Masks to 4 of our lucky readers?!?!  OK. So I’ve totally ruined any chance for suspense here as I’ve already used the words “cool” and “awesome”. So I think you can figure out where this RZ Mask review is going, but seriously, I was totally BLOWN AWAY with how awesome this product is.  They not only made it superior to other masks in terms of science and...

 Over the weekend I received a message from one of our readers.  As usual, I will not share the name of the writer nor specific details about their location, but I felt strongly that this would be a great opportunity to remind us all of a couple of very important aspects of living a peaceful life of preparedness.  Her message was as follows: “Aug 13th, 12:59pm   There were horrible storms in our area yesterday. Winds clocked at about 75 mph, rain and lots of thunder and lightning. I try to be...

Ah... a cross-country move.  Such a joy, especially with 4 dogs in tow.  But, there's always some humor if one is paying attention. For me, I got a hefty dose of it from those who helped me load the moving truck in Utah and from those who helped me unload it in Ohio.  Just a quick FYI, It's common in my religion for people to help other people move. There are usually just a couple of church leaders that one can call to alert to one's arrival in a new area, and sure as sunshine you can expect...
Kellene teaches women's firearm self-defense
24 Apr 2015 by
Filed in Mental Preparedness
"Fog of War" is a term I use in both everyday preparedness, as well as in being prepared for self-defense scenarios.  Today I'm going to address firearm self-defense scenarios more specifically, however, before I do, I just want to bring up one point that applies universally to everyday preparedness. Having THINGS, such as food, water, ammo, etc. don't make a person prepared. PRACTICE using, finding, thinking about, learnign about the use of those things is what makes a person prepared.  A...
