62 Reasons Why my Bandana was Saved from the Donation Pile--by Guest Contributor Emily S   Over the years I have accumulated a collection of bandanas which I have received from various events, activities and as gifts.  After their immediate use had passed I would wash, fold, and tuck them away in my sock drawer.  About a year ago while I was doing some spring cleaning, I came across my collection of bandanas and decided that since I had never used any of them, and they were just taking up room...

The news as of late does a great job reminding me why preparedness really does need to be an everyday focus. We’ve clearly seen that we can’t stop thinking about preparedness just because we are going on a vacation to Paris.  Look at the consequences that so many are enduring all because of the winter season behaving like a winter season. How about all of the travelers all over the world that were stranded in 2010, all because a volcano in Iceland from across the ocean blew its top?   So, today...

We've get to post the pictures of the aprons that were submitted along with a list of the top 3 winners. We also had to make some big adjustments to how the contest played out.
