Book Review: The End (Book 1 of the New World Series) - G Michael Hopf

the end

The End was just the kick in the preps I have been looking for!

The love of one of my favorite Disaster Scenarios – EMP - was rejuvinated through the characters and scenarios that G. Michael Hopf brought to life in his novel, The End.

Thrive Mashed Potatoes

I was SO excited to try the new Thrive mashed potatoes!!
2 minutes and I was done! I simmered 1-1/4 cups of water and added 1 cup of potatoes, let it set for a minute, then added a splash of milk and a little Thrive butter, gravy and yum!
No peeling no dicing, no waiting 20 minutes to cook, no mashing and getting rid of lumps. Best of all they are Non GMO and no leftover potatoes rotting in the bag, in the bottom of the refrigerator. Total WIN!

Book Review - Emergency/Survival Hygiene: A Prepper Cookbook for Making Survival Hygiene Products -Survivor Jane

Survivor Jane - Emergency/Survival Hygiene: A Prepper Cookbook for Making Survival Hygiene Products 
I instantly realized that this book is not just for the preparedness minded.  It is a wonderful resource for females of all ages, especially those who have concerns about the ‘stuff’ put in our everyday lotions and potions.  I would also recommend this book for men; there are several sections that would be useful for the ‘guys’ in our lives.  [Not just for their own personal use, but as an insight into things that they might have to deal with for the ladies involved in their preparedness plans].

Making Pumpkin Powder

The day after Halloween I contacted Home Depot to see if their pumpkins were on sale. They told me they were free now and to come get all I wanted

Book Review - Power Grid Down

Power Grid Down Blog Tour Review by Jen E.PDFPrintE-mail
power grid downWhether you have been prepping for 20 days or 20 years, this book will definitely get you thinking!  You will also learn many ways to look at your preparedness items and find new ways to use them.
Tara was able to not only inform and educate on the possibilities of EMP attacks, but also added new ideas and scenarios that I had never even heard of!  WOW did this really get me thinking and prompted some very interesting dinner conversations with family and friends.  I cannot tell you how many times her statement “According to the FAA, there are about 7,000 types of aircraft flying over the United States at any given time” has resonated in my mind, since reading her chapter on Weather Disaster, Solar Flares and EMP attacks.
