You and Family on the Road

The last few days, in the midst of attacks from some old and newer injuries deciding to gang up on me, I had various streams of thought flood my head. They all centered on convoys of private vehicles. No surrounding settings or conditions, such as some big event causing people to go here and there in a panic. No big flashes, or news reports or crush of refugees. Just various sizes of convoys in differing configurations moving down the highways

Your Online Activity Being Watched

I try not to get too political on this blog. It isn’t really productive when it comes to your efforts at hardening your life against ill effects. Politics generally raise temperatures and polarize discussions. That doesn’t mean I don’t have views. I just don’t like to make them a topic.

That said, I feel I need to state some obvious facts here, that some people obviously don’t consider. The biggie is this: Everything you do, and I mean EVERYTHING, is

Of Cats and Dogs

People are usually either dog people or cat people. I happen to be both, though I lean a bit more towards cats. Both are intelligent, and can be trained. The belief that cats are aloof is a myth, in my opinion. The five we have are all personable, and three of them actually know and obey commands. (The older two used to, but have entered a new stage of life…) We held and handled all of them from kittens. They

Tulips General Store - Home of the Naughty Goat

A friend of mine is taking over the reigns of a small shop that showcases the local talents of a town in Wisconsin. They will open their own shop there, with her hubby. The Naughty Goat is getting a new home. I want to spread the word about this new endeavor, as both Emme and Chris have shown that they are kind and sharing people with loads of creativity. They have quite a story of tragedy and victory, and this

And now, for a little music....

Why? Because I can. I tickle the keys a little now and then. Here si one I am working on. Absolutely beautiful. Magnificent in recording, and in person.

And another. This one I learned years ago, but I need to resurrect it.

I suppose it is a minor “OpSec” (so much is made of that word… sigh) violation, but yes, I DO love the music of Horowitz.

Gotta add another one. Here is Horowitz turning the Steinway into

An Article Explaining Ionizing and Non-Ionizing Radiation

From the EPA, an article with a good graphic that explains what kinds of radiation, and their related frequencies, will create ionization, and which won’t. I found it helpful.

Surveillance State Reporting Grows

Remember those guys that said everyone was being watched? Remember the tin foil hats they wore? Wanna buy one??

I hear they are in very short supply….

Just some of the stories that are so prominent these days. I remember when getting info on these activities was an exercise in dark-net scrounging. Now it’s main stream.

Try this on for size. The FBI wants deep installation of meta-data fishing software installed in major ISP networks. Makes it easier to get

When is Prepping Not?

When the poop has hit the fan, that’s when.

Prepping seems to be taking on a new definition lately. I’ve read a few articles describing camping out as prepping. Same with bugging out (except as a test), bugging in and taking vacation.

Is this a grammar cop thing? Maybe. But distinctions exist for a reason, so I’m writing about this tiny little inconsequential distinction.

To be ready to tackle an issue, any issue, you need to prepare for it. Tests
