Advice Given to Family Member re: LTS Foods

A while back I wrote an interested family member a few thoughts on LTS food (Long Term Storage) for himself and his teenaged children. He is a budding prepper who has embraced the self defense side of things quite readily and is now working on foods and income. These last two are where I would love to see him concentrate his efforts.

================================

Hi,

I’ll start off by saying that your food storage must be made up of foods that

MH370 - You Knew All Along, Right?

When the news came out about MH370 going off radar, it was assumed by most, rightly, that it had crashed. When a plane disappears and doesn’t arrive within hours of its due time, it only makes sense that it has gone down somewhere.

But these thoughts and fears were heavy at a point EARLY ON. Think back to other emerging news story of import. How many of them changed significantly as new information came available? Most of them did, right?

US to Give Up Control of the Internet

Or, will give up what control it has left.

I remember the days of slow dial-up network access with fondness on one level – a private network. When Prodigy and Promenade were pretty much the big guys as far as inter-connectivity among the masses. You became a member, and then could network with people anywhere on the system. Promenade later became America Online, or AOL. Each system had its own closed network, services, communities, downloads games and chatrooms. It was

Have you Heard of WIPP?

I’ve been retweeting POTRBlog’s work on WIPP for over a month. Why? Because he’s doing a fantastic job and I can’t! I will post his most recent article in its entirety. All credit for work done is due to him.

From Today, March 13, 2014 at POTRBlog.

WIPP’s Radiation Detection Equipment Was Overwhelmed By Explosive Plutonium Release

It was (and still is) mathematically and physically impossible for the exhaust air sampling equipment used at DOE’s WIPP facility to measure or

Hello to the CCCP (USSR to you non-Cold War types…)

I’ve been spreading my opinion for a while, now, that our friend Putin is 100% KGB CCCP, and is nothing like the “New Russian” that the leftist media would have us believe. He was raised in the Soviet Union, trained by the KGB and is not bashful about reminiscing about the old days. He was a Cold War KGB thug then, and still has a love of the old USSR.

H7N9 2-01-14

Nothing big to read for today, just an exhortation to keep reality in the forefront of your mind when reading about H7N9 infections – and to READ about H7N9 infections. As far as this blogger is concerned, the epicenter for information on current news and personal mitigation efforts is over at POTR Blog, http://pissinontheroses.blogspot.com/

I’ve been following various news sources, and certain Twitter feeds. Most have something to offer, but nothing quite so focused or intuitive. For me, it is

Something to add to Blowout Kits and IFAKs

Naso-pharangeal airways are a component in just about every military IFAK. Damaged airways are not uncommon when bullets and heavy debris fly. For the prepper equipped with IFAKs, these devices are already in his kit. A lot of prep-medics will recommended adding this where it is absent.

There is an alternative to these, however, which ignores the nasal passages entirely. If a large oral airway structurally remains, the Berman Oral Airway is an EXCELLENT alternative. It can not be collapsed,

Everybody Has Coffee in Their Preps, Right?

Booze and smokes make it onto some preppers’ lists as barter items, or just for plain old happy relaxing time when the day’s business of capping zombies and fighting world corruption is complete. Others add tea and coffee for similar reasons. Well, here is a “study” that claims an intake of 200 – 300 mg of caffeine enhances memory. That could be really handy if you lose your printouts of essential items, or your instruction for building a bunker or

Just One Story Highlighting Gun Safety

Forget for a moment that these fools were drinking before the accident that killed a man. Forget that planning to do something as immature as firing into the air is a bad idea. Remember two things from this incident:

ALL GUNS ARE LOADED AT ALL TIMES

DON’T EVER POINT ONE AT SOMETHING UNLESS YOU PLAN TO DESTROY IT

Yes, I was yelling, there. In my best parade ground voice. (But don’t call me “Gunny”) These

Some Thoughts on Killer Flus, and Government Health (couldn't) Care (less)

From POTR BLog, pissinontheroses.blogspot.com

I don’t generally post whole articles from other blogs, but this one from POTR Blog begs for exposure. I thought it was a fairly good write up on the presence of a killer flu, a government’s medical response (late in coming) and how cost controls in single-payer systems lead to personal tragedy without resource to recompense.

What will China, Canada and the US soon have in common? More than you might expect…
