You name it it can be found on video. This includes movies for entertainment, how to dress a deer, how to take care of a broken

Every week I throw out a few recommendations on things such as movies, books, knives, flashlights – all kinds of stuff. Some of these are not related to preparedness whatsoever – rather, just stuff I like. Most are available on Amazon but not all. I have a particular fondness for movies as one of my favorite things to do is to sit back and watch a good one.
So – for this week……here is my

Figured I would say a few words on two of my favorite things…..Netflix and the Kindle.
I have been user of Netflix for several years now – going from receiving DVD’s in the mail to now only streaming movies. At around $10 per month for unlimited streaming of the thousands of movies, TV shows, documentaries, etc. it is a great deal. Many of you may remember a few months ago that I got rid of

The Danger of Pandemics
Without a doubt, a pandemic is a serious – and usually deadly – disease outbreak at a global level. In fact, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that “another influenza pandemic is highly likely, if not inevitable”. The word pandemic, itself, comes from
