Photo c/o thespiceguys.net Someone mentioned to me this morning that they wish they had a farm.  I personally have been wishing that I had a space for a real garden.  I have recently embraced the use of square foot gardening and one thing I decided to do this year in my garden that has me practically giddy is planting herbs in the space that I normally have planted flowers.  I have to tell you, I’m thrilled with the results.  I never fully knew about the ease and magic of growing your own...

Photo c/o sqpn.com Are you ready to survive a 90-day quarantine?  Is such a scenario even realistic? Well, let’s explore that. Suppose the flu virus did get out of hand.  In all actuality, it’s quite likely.  The most current strain is eerily similar to the Spanish flu virus of 1918 which went pandemic in less than 3 months.  It took the lives of over fifty-percent of those who contracted it.  It took only 8 months for it to kill 100 million people.  The only thing saving us right now is...

I can’t think of a single person I know who wouldn’t love more sanity and peace in their life.  But I suspect that very few of them would think of cutting coupons as a source of that sanity and peace, right? Last Sunday at church, a guy gave a lesson to the whole congregation on financial preparedness and being financially prudent regardless of whether you’re struggling or not.  His advice was timely and right on.   But today… I saw his wife in the grocery store behind me lugging around three...

There’s nothing sadder to me than when I see someone who’s finally started taking steps to build up their food storage, only to hear that they’ve wasted tons of money by having to throw food out.  I see folks buy foods regularly without being mindful of the best way to store it.  More unfortunate is that folks are throwing away perfectly good grains when there’s no need to.  The good news is that you don’t have to waste your food storage money this way.  I’m going to show you how to maximize...

While I reported on the looming wheat shortage in detail several months ago, it has caught my attention again due to how quickly it’s coming upon us and how much worse it’s become. A wheat shortage isn’t just confined to far off distant lands anymore.  It has definitely hit America.   Additionally, there is not a single country in the world that is not experience a wheat shortage. Nations all over the world are reporting a shortage of wheat.  Romania lost over two-thirds of their wheat harvest...

Oh my gosh!  No wonder why more people don’t get involved with emergency preparedness!  If you do an internet search on emergency preparedness, at least the first 20 pages of the links are downright BORING!  Ugh!  I’d rather actually be in an earthquake than try to live through another internet search on emergency preparedness again!  Make Al-Qaida prisoners of war read government articles on emergency preparedness and you’ll have no problem finding Bin Laden in a heartbeat!  Do these people...

Photo c/o mediabistro.com A real emergency will change who you are today if you aren’t prepared now, pure and simple.  The difference in personalities and decision making in the midst of an emergency is very much like a Jekyll and Hyde complex.  Whether you’ll be Jekyll or Hyde in an emergency is up to you today.  Which will you be? Priorities.  We deal with them every single day.  But think about this for just a moment. If you had to make a choice to pay your mortgage or feed your family,...

I hate having to learn dumb lessons.  Don’t you?  As I’ve looked back and realized all the simple tricks and strategies I’ve learned over the last 10 years, I cringe at the thought of all of the money, time, anxiety, and energy I’ve wasted.  So I decided to share them with you.  You’re sure to learn something in this list!  I hope you’ll learn from my mistakes NOW! Yeast will last indefinitely if stored in your freezer!  Outside the freezer it only lasts a year, but inside that freezing...
