One of the ways I stay on top of news that's relevant to me and my world is by creating my personalized Google Alerts profile. When you enroll with Google Alerts, you provide key words in which you’re interested. So any time that key word hits a news article, blog, or other aspect of the internet you will be notified. You specify the key words for which you’re looking, how often you want to be notified via e-mail of such, and from what sources do you want articles, notes, or blogs about the...

On the radio show this past Saturday we did a “Best of” replay as it was my 12 year wedding anniversary so I took some time off.However, I don’t believe that I ever provided you folks with the link for the show prior to that one which was on the topic of hoarding.  In this particular show I discussed the realities of so-called anti-hoarding laws, highlighted your rights and freedoms in this regard, and I also shared with you some ways that you can be more careful in keeping your preparedness...

 We interrupt this series in order to lighten up a bit! Frankly, all of this “I have to tell them about this nasty stuff NOW!” has been a bit depressing. With all that I believe in terms of “panic-free preparedness” it’s been a bit challenging to write about so much turmoil. So, if it’s all right with you, I’m going to take a little detour today and go back to the beginning—the first Principle of Preparedness. After all, I think that with all of the time-sensitive wake-up call kind of things I’...

Warning: Food Supply and Affordability are Seriously Threatened The Overview Why have I not written for several days? Well, believe it or not, it’s not because of the television show that I’ve been preparing to have filmed by TLC, and it’s not because of the extra radio shows lately.  It’s not even been a time management issue and fortunately my health has been great. Unfortunately, my delay in posting something worthwhile is because I’ve been struggling with how to share the information I...

Hey folks, last Saturday Scott (at Five Star Preparedness) did a preparedness fair and he put together a package of specials for the fair attendees through the 31st of this month. So when I saw the flyer, I asked if he could give the same deals to my readers. And of course, since I asked all nice and cute, he said yes. *grin* So here's the link to his flyer from the fair. http://www.fivestarpreparedness.com/documents/stakeprep.pdf Also, be sure to check out their group buy for this month on...

Tis the season for Preparedness Fairs cropping up in regions all over the U.S.  However, in nearly all instances, organizers express dismay that their event was not as well attended as they had hoped.  The fact of the matter is, unless you do a really great job marketing, the only folks who attend a Preparedness Fair are the folks who are already on board.  It’s easy for them to slough off the event as “just another same old, same old.” So, what’s a fair organizer to do?  I’ll tell you. First...

Counter Commodity Security To be completely forthright, I wanted to write this particular article first in this particular series. However, I knew that it wouldn’t have as much of an impact if the foundation hadn’t been laid out properly with the previous articles. So think of this article as the cymbal clash that follows your drum roll. As I’ve shared with you previously, preparedness is not about being ready for an “end of the world” type of scenario. It’s about independence IN everyday...

by Kellene Filling your preparedness pantry doesn't have to cost a bucket load of money. photo c/o www.mcdowelltech.edu While perusing advertisements for “emergency preparedness” supplies, I saw some pretty hefty price tags just for a year’s worth of food. This doesn’t count the bucket loads of money that one could spend on other gadgets like a solar oven, pressure cooker, first aid supplies, etc. So, let’s get real.  What can a person with only a few hundred bucks a year do to increase their...

by Kellene What? The Preparedness Pro is wrong? “Oh my. What was she wrong about?  Was it how she preserves eggs with mineral oil and without refrigeration?  Was it how she dares to store water on the concrete in her basement? Ooh. Maybe it’s that she uses Diatomaceous Earth in her whole grains.”  Nope. I’m 100% confident that I’m correct in all of those teachings.  However, I have been wrong about a critical aspect of preparedness in the past, and I’d like to correct it today.   What did I...

by Kellene Looting is rampant despite relief sent to Haiti I’m taking a pause from the Food Series to address what I feel is a timely and important issue in Haiti. The biggest disaster to hit Haiti is unfortunately not the earthquake, rather it’s how the Haitian people are responding to the circumstances brought on by the earthquake. I watch in amazement as events more deadly than the earth’s rumblings brutally strangle a country that is already on its knees economically and socially. I’m...
