Without getting overly spiritual and heading down the path of in Whom our security should lie and Who knows the end of the book while we're still acting out the chapters here on earth...the topic of "security" has become a volatile one at best here in the tangible world. Most especially it is a volatile topic in America. To top off the state of affairs that plague America the past few years - many of us have suffered a great sense of the lack of Security, even while government tries to reach in and do more - we are less [...]
Author: Donna Miller There is a great difference that rearranging that subject line above would make. It could read: "To get fear under control, get prepared." However, that is not exactly how I feel the true prepared lifestyle actually works. The fact is that most of us have never chosen wisely reacting out of fear. Chaos, emergencies, and emotional instability often force us into feeling that we have to make decisions immediately and often on only partial information and even worse, on little if no faith. Fear can be a motivator, but it can also be a jailer or a [...]
In the realm of preparedness there is a wide range of philosophies and along with those come a wide range of acronyms. If you are new to the preparedness movement or you've been doing this a while and are now slapped in the face with a conglomerate of capitol letters being jumbled together and want to make sense of things - I want to start with a short acronym list we are finding in much of the material now arising on the topic of preparedness: WROL - Without Rule Of Law. TEOTWAWKI - The End Of The World As [...]

Canned goods are not just in the commercially canned containers. Not too far in the distant past, most of the preserved foods had little to do with added preservatives, but with canning. The first canning process was developed as a French military discovery by Nicolas Appert. In 1800, Napoleon Bonaparte offered an award of 12,000 francs to anyone who could conceive of a practical method for food preservation for armies on the march; he is widely reported as saying "An army marches on its stomach". After about 14 or 15 years of trial and error, Appert presented his invention and [...]
By Donna Miller Most people don't even give survival a second thought. To many survival means having air conditioning and cable TV. But what is real survival and what techniques are needed to know or skills and planning are involved if one were to have to survive, say without shelter or a grocery store close by?
