Meatball Soup Recipe -- By Kellene Bishop   One thing I love about my good friend Shawna is that she has a lot of good recipes that are easy, delicious and can easily be adapted to be made from your preparedness food pantry.  She has shared quite a few with me over the years that I love, so keep an eye out for some more her recipes in the near future.   With Fall quickly approaching (officially September 23rd) I thought I would share one her easy soup recipes with you, which I actually enjoy...

One of the fundamentals for being prepared for all that life throws at us is having what we really need, when we really need it--and having a back-up.  I accomplish a lifestyle of Panic Free Preparedness by living by the Rule of Three.   The Rule of 3, is the ultimate expression of one “preparing for the worst”. As I learned it, the Rule of 3 comes from a military training message: “3 is 2, 2 is 1, and 1 is none”, and boy howdy can I attest to that being the truth! What does it mean “1 is none...

Another St. Louis Police shooting of a black man just 5 miles away from the Ferguson, MO shooting that's the cause of so much unrest this week. (WARNING: You can watch it on mute and see what happens just fine, but if you watch it with sound there is plenty of vulgar language.) Lest any of us get on the Irate and Hate Bandwagon, I'm going to give you my two cents on this 2nd shooting by police in Missouri. There are six things I'm considering here.   1: The person did NOT respond to orders...

What You Need to Know About Lice-- By Guest Contributor Jackie K.    What I know now, compared to what I knew in January of 2010, are worlds apart.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of being exposed to lice, count your blessing.  I never experienced them as a child, nor did I know anyone who had.  I do remember, in elementary school, these ladies coming into our classroom on a regular basis to check our heads.  However, no one was ever sent home, and we would all laugh and say it felt weird...

Everyone has the right to defend themselves. Fact: 100% of ALL firearm “accidents” occur as a result of someone violating one of the four most critical safety rules in the ownership and use of a firearm.  Firearms don’t kill people as the media would have us believe, any more than pencils are responsible for making spelling mistakes.  Your ability to STOP a firearm accident is strengthened by your knowledge of a firearm.  In contrast, if you are not familiar with the workings of a firearm,...

Hey there, I've been busy preparing for an education event that I'm taking part in this weekend. It's an event that I've attended (and taught at) regularly and I've not missed it over the past 4 years.  I got to thinking today about how much I wanted to do to share this information with those that I know would love it and I just had a spur of the moment thought... Ready?? I've decided to give away 4 scholarships, courtesy Preparedness Pro, to anyone who would like to attend an amazing 2-day...

I hope that you've all enjoyed your holiday weekend and that you got to do something over the weekend that helped you become a little bit more independent. I know I did and so now I'm back and ready to work hard at Preparedness Pro. To start off with a bang, I decided that it was time for me to share with you my original list of 85 different things that I've come up with over the last year and half that just might be a dead giveaway that you're a prepper.  If you find that you can nod your...

Is Homeschooling Right for You?--by Guest Contributor Penni Batty   There's a whole lot of buzz about public school these days. As a home school mom of six children, I think I've probably heard every existing argument in favor of it, and yet, the more of these arguments I hear, the more opposed I am to public education. Why? Because most of these arguments defy logic and reason.   Let's look at the big one first—my pet peeve—the claim that the only acceptable place for your child to learn how...

A reader asks a question about preserving candy without a FoodSaver:   Question: "Hi Kellene, Your site helps me so much, thank you. I know you preserve chocolate and candy. Can I do that with oxygen absorbers in mason jars? if so, should they be unpackaged, like M&Ms? I don't have a foodsaver. I also would like to preserve hard candies. How long will they last under the right temps/conditions? just approx...thank you so much!"   Answer: Yes, in the absence of a FoodSaver you can still get...
