In a new effort to pressure Iran over it’s nuclear program, the European Union has imposed sanctions on Iranian Oil. There is some ‘wiggle room’ for negotiation, on the sanctions however if Iran were to suspend  it’s atomic activity. Does the actions of those ‘across the pond’ affect those in the USA and around the world? I believe they will affect us and sooner as well as later. Some events that I see happening are as follows: Immidiately the west will have issues with crude oil prices which will… Raise the price of gas at the pumps An already sluggish […]

Preparation and Food Storage: Home-canning

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 […]

Water, water everywhere nor any a drop to drink.

This line from the poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner rings more true when thinking of surviving difficult times. As we’ve stated before in at least one email that has gone out to everyone who subscribes, water is more VITAL than food when surviving is the issue. A human body can last at least 40 days without food, but begins to shut down all vital organs in less than 3 days of no water. After the 3 day period, with little to no water, the damage is nearly irreversible. The damage begins that early and the body begins dying. […]
