April 23, 2014 - "What to do if you’re captured" by Scott Kelley. Here is an article that explains how to deal with a hostage situation. So if you and/or your family were captured as a hostage or kidnapped, would you know how to deal with it? Every situation is different and can be very fluid but here are some things to consider.

April 23, 2014 - "A powerful and Natural Solution for Bronchitis and Pneumonia" By Herbal Survivalist. This simple Recipe will knock out bronchitis and aid in the healing of Pneumonia. It is well worth saving to your archives. Click here



April 23, 2014 - "Edible Flower Power: Eat These Blooms Beat Chronic Disease" By Emily Main. Chive blossoms on pizza, cornflowers in cocktails—trendy chefs at high-end restaurants may have realized that people love the look of an edible flower gracing a meal, but what they may not be realizing is that those pretty garnishes could be saving their patrons' long-term health. Click here

April 22, 2014 - "The Real Expiration Date for Common Foods" Heather Callaghan. The regulation guidelines for expired foods are few and arbitrary, really. They are also voluntary. They sprang up in the 1970s for more consumer information and perceived freshness. Expiration labels are only required by law for infant formula and baby foods; other laws regarding dairy are left up to some states and vary. There is waste before, during and after a food item’s grocery stay. Now, more than ever, when throwing out food we’re unsure of, it feels like trashing bags of money – and most of it is completely unnecessary. Click here

April 22, 2014 - "Procuring Water When Utilities Are Shut Off" If you’ve been prepping for more than…well…a few hours, you probably understand the importance of stockpiling a source of purified water. Public utilities are fragile to say the least, and anything from inclement weather to a SHTF scenario could cause disruptions in public water. Click here

April 22, 2014 - "Girls and Guns" By Gunny-T. A long time ago, I married a city girl. With her came two very citified daughters, thirteen and fifteen. Very beautiful and bright young ladies. Their previous education on firearms had come from three sources, anti gun family members, friends who had no knowledge of firearms, and of course, the television. To them, guns were a symbol of violence, they were evil things that killed people. Teaching them about firearms was going to be a challenge. I knew they had a lot to learn. What I didn’t know at the time was how much I also had to learn. Click here

April 21, 2014 - "Many Faces of Survival: How Different People Cope in the Aftermath of Disaster" By Emma Naylor. Everyone has a different response to a crisis situation. Some people always seem to be prepared for any crisis or disaster, large or small. Some people, often the ones we least expect to be strong under pressure, rise to the challenge and may even assume leadership roles, taking care of others who are still struggling to adapt to the changes going on around them. Others fall apart and, again, there is no telling who may do so in the face of a disaster. Very often, they are not weak people - far from it - and, given time and the support of others around them to allow them to adapt to their new circumstances, they have every chance of becoming valuable members of their community once again. However, before they do so, they may go through a period in which they try to deny the reality of their situation or seek to avoid dealing with it in some way. Click here

April 21, 2014 - "The Unglamorous Side of Homesteading and Prepping" by Homestead Dreamer. Homesteading and Prepping is hard work. It is dirty, sweat filled, bruise-causing work. It is also hours of reading material that you have to pick through and decide whether it is relevant, logical, and reasonable. It can be very hard to sift through the fluff and get to the ‘good stuff.’ Of course, the ‘good stuff’ is defined differently for everyone. Recently I posted an article about some of the Prepper/Homesteader Resources I use. I have spent literally hundreds of hours reading and researching these sites to learn things about different projects and systems we want to implement into our homestead (when we get the land). I am using the time I have now to learn the skills I need so when the time comes, we can hit the ground running. Other than research and reading, there are many other ‘back office’ things that have to come together to make prepping or homesteading succeed. Some of the more significant ones for me have budgeted, storage issues, and lessons on limitations. Click here

April 21, 2014 - "3 Essential People in Your Prepper Group: Stacking the Deck" In the world of prepperdom, it’s a common sentiment to aspire to be a Jack of all trades. However, what often results is that the ‘Jack’ (or Jill, of course!) is a master of none. Simply put, society thrives because people are different. There is a wide diversity of different strengths and different weaknesses, and under good leadership, this can be leveraged to promote economic growth and the advancement of survival. Click here

April 21, 2014 - "Today's Science Has Found That Mixing Honey and Cinnamon Cures Most Diseases" By TRUTHER. Drug companies won’t like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon: It is found that a mix of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey as very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a plus. Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Click here

April 21, 2014 - "5 Tips for the Beginning Prepper" by Josh. When you’re new to preparedness things can seem overwhelming, with tons of information about how to be a perfect prepper. However, in most cases preparedness is pretty simple for the most part, with only a few things to watch out for particularly when you’re just starting out.

April 1, 2014 - "Beekeeping For Your Backyard or Homestead Webinar" How's your week starting? It's sunny and 70 in Virginia today and supposed to be 75 the next two days. The trees are budding out and the forsythia and redbuds are starting to bloom, so spring is definitely here. I'm excited to start working in and planting in my garden this week. My friend Rob - who joined me for our webinars on Garden Planning and Seed Starting - is coming back Tuesday night at 9:00 pm Eastern to talk about getting started with beekeeping for your backyard or homestead. Rob has been a backyard beekeeper for 13 years, and takes a natural approach to bee management. He has his own bee extraction business, and is the president of one of the largest beekeeping clubs in Richmond, Virginia. On Tuesday's webinar, Rob will discuss:

  • Why you should consider keeping bees
  • What types of hives you can use
  • What equipment is necessary to get started
  • How to get bees
  • When you can expect to get honey
  • How much getting started costs
Beekeeping is one of the best ways to help your vegetable and fruit production through pollination, and produce your own honey - the best natural sweetener that also has medicinal uses.

March 27, 2014 - "Keep Calm And Compress The Chest - Dealing With Medical Emergencies" By Emma Naylor. In the event of a disaster, there are many things which people will need. Food, water, shelter, and the necessary knowledge to obtain, prepare, and create these things are essentials. But of crucial importance also is at least some basic medical knowledge. The human body is fallible, and without the necessary training and means to put it back together again when it goes wrong, much disaster-preparedness would be a waste of time. click here

March 21, 2014 - "Canning Salmon" People are often surprised when I tell them I can my own fish.

January 23, 2014 - "Survival Defense Crafting a Fire-Hardened Spear" by Josh. Although being prepared generally means having the best means of defense available, there may be situations where you need a more primitive means of defense. The spear was historically used from the earliest times and even into the modern era in some places, and it still has its place when you’re stuck in the wilderness and in need of a weapon. Of course you can just use a knife or some rocks to shape a stick into a spear point, but a little bit of hardening by a campfire can drastically improve the durability and performance of your spear, making it a highly recommended step.

January 9, 2014 - "Canning Journal" by Moirakris. A Canning Journal is a good thing to start once you begin canning.

By writing down the recipes and impressions of your canning adventures, it will serve as not only as a reminder of what went into the food that you're eating but will also remind you of each step you took in creating that recipe.
