Monday Mania – 2.29.2016
It is officially the last 29th of February until 2020! I have seen a large number of errors being made when writing the date today. There are a bunch of people who want it to be March already.
There is not much to report for me this week.
I worked, I played, and I got soaked trying to fix the shower. I don’t know what I was thinking but I over tightened the screw that controls the water. When I went to loosen it, I turned the water on and it sprayed all over me. Luckily, I still have pretty good reflexes and I was able to limit the amount of water that covered me. If nothing else, it was good for a laugh.
My oldest son has battled some medical problems for almost a decade now. This week has been pretty good for him. It’s probably the best week he has had in the last year and a half. We have seen great improvement in his personality and demeanor. This is truly a blessing from God. We have struggled to get to this point. I pray that things continue down this path. Your prayers are always appreciated as well.
I hope that y’all have a great week!
MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:
20 Steps: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Prepper – This is not a supply list. These 20 steps are actionable and a great way to establish your emergency preparedness.
101 Frugal Items You Need For Survival – Affordability is a key component to purchasing supplies and gear. I like this list because it is no nonsense and straight to the point.
Thinking of Starting a Prepper Network? Think Again! – An interesting look at the pitfalls of forming a mutual assistance group (MAG) or prepper network. I’m still going to stick with my thoughts that community is the only way to overcome a crisis.
DIY $20 Survival Food Bucket – $20 for a bucket of food? I’m in! There is some good information here about the value of storing real food and how to do so.
How Dependent Are You On Electricity? – Have you ever stopped to really evaluate the number of items that are used on a daily basis and plan what you would do if those items were not available? This article covers many of those every day items and provides some suggestions on how to work around not having a dependable source of electricity.
Prepper’s Threat Analysis – Establishing Prepping Priorities – Always have a firm grasp on what may come next and what you need to do to be prepared for it.
Atlanta Business Owner Gives All of His Employees a Gun – I personally like this idea but, I could see how (especially in our world today) this could lead to future problems for Mr. Toland. After all, “they made me do something against my beliefs” is a great foundation for a lawsuit these days.
God forbid, the complainant happens to also be LGBTQ or a Muslim. How dare they have to carry a weapon. It’s the religion of peace. (That is not what I was thinking when a Muslim was shooting at us with an AK-47 in the middle east.) It all would just make better fodder for the MSM.
Utilizing 12v DC Systems for Primary or Emergency Power – An interesting perspective on using an alternator as the center of an off grid power system. I can see the advantages but you will still need a motor of some type.
MORE MADNESS IN THE WORLD:
Obama Opens the Border to More STDs – This is only part of what scares me about my children’s, and future generations, wellbeing. Even if they escape the atrocities that are overcoming our world, as we continue to accept things (after all, they are treatable), it is only going to increase the rate of occurrence of these diseases.
WHY DO WE DO THIS TO OURSELVES?!?!?!?!?!
Mega Retailers Close Stores: Hard to Shop “When People Are Just Trying to Pay Their Mortage” – My expectation is that this is only a preview of what is to come. I recommend taking a look at The Alpha Strategy and making a plan to invest in your future with physical goods as they become harder and harder to obtain in local areas.
Germany Admits They Have Lost Track of 130,000 Refugees – Whether the numbers are accurate or not, this is a legitimate concern. I think that this gives us a preview of what is to come. No one could definitively say where all of the immigrants and visa holders (current and lapsed) are at in the U.S., right?
Zuckerberg’s Virtual Reality Photo: Our Future in the Matrix – This is really not that far fetched. We certainly are headed in a direction where this is probable.
TIN FOIL HAT TIME?
Beware Twitter Users: Your Tweets Help the Government Predict the Future – I would not doubt it.
That’s a wrap for me this week. As always, I hope that you all have a great week and keep getting ready for tough times. It seems like we get closer every day to something unfortunate coming along.
If you found something that you would like to share with the group or have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com.
