What You Need to Know About Lice-- By Guest Contributor Jackie K.    What I know now, compared to what I knew in January of 2010, are worlds apart.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of being exposed to lice, count your blessing.  I never experienced them as a child, nor did I know anyone who had.  I do remember, in elementary school, these ladies coming into our classroom on a regular basis to check our heads.  However, no one was ever sent home, and we would all laugh and say it felt weird...

Everyone has the right to defend themselves. Fact: 100% of ALL firearm “accidents” occur as a result of someone violating one of the four most critical safety rules in the ownership and use of a firearm.  Firearms don’t kill people as the media would have us believe, any more than pencils are responsible for making spelling mistakes.  Your ability to STOP a firearm accident is strengthened by your knowledge of a firearm.  In contrast, if you are not familiar with the workings of a firearm,...

Hey there, I've been busy preparing for an education event that I'm taking part in this weekend. It's an event that I've attended (and taught at) regularly and I've not missed it over the past 4 years.  I got to thinking today about how much I wanted to do to share this information with those that I know would love it and I just had a spur of the moment thought... Ready?? I've decided to give away 4 scholarships, courtesy Preparedness Pro, to anyone who would like to attend an amazing 2-day...

I decided that it was time for me to share with you my original list of 85 different things that I've come up with over the years that just might be a dead giveaway that you're a prepper.  If you find that you can nod your head to even 10 of these, it's time to give up the fight, give in, and join in the cause with the rest of us crazy preppers. Some of these are just crazy, and some you'll find to be painfully true. But I betcha that you might be wrong if you were to guess which ones were...

Is Homeschooling Right for You?--by Guest Contributor Penni Batty   There's a whole lot of buzz about public school these days. As a home school mom of six children, I think I've probably heard every existing argument in favor of it, and yet, the more of these arguments I hear, the more opposed I am to public education. Why? Because most of these arguments defy logic and reason.   Let's look at the big one first—my pet peeve—the claim that the only acceptable place for your child to learn how...

A reader asks a question about preserving candy without a FoodSaver:   Question: "Hi Kellene, Your site helps me so much, thank you. I know you preserve chocolate and candy. Can I do that with oxygen absorbers in mason jars? if so, should they be unpackaged, like M&Ms? I don't have a foodsaver. I also would like to preserve hard candies. How long will they last under the right temps/conditions? just approx...thank you so much!"   Answer: Yes, in the absence of a FoodSaver you can still get...

Heiss Kartoffel Salat (aka Hot German Potato Salad) -- Preparedness Pro   I love trying new recipes, especially ones of International Fare.  Today’s recipe comes to us from across the Atlantic from the beautiful country of Germany.  My dear friend Shawna shared this with me recently and I can tell you, it does not disappoint.    Shawna’s mother-in-law was born in Germany and often makes German dishes for special occasions, which she always enjoys.  She has also visited Germany on numerous...

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...

Backyard Hunting--By Guest Contributor Sharon Cundiff   My husband and I enjoyed the festivities for opening day of the Cincinnati Reds, walking through the park that parallels the river with my sister-in-law and her niece.  The path wanders through and around trees, bushes and flowers, when suddenly a darting object caught my eye as it seeks refuge under the bushes.  I froze as the others continued walking ahead. A fat bird starts to dart out from under the bush, suddenly it spotted me, and...
