Movie Monday - Killer Flu

This Week On Movie Monday

Killer Flu

In 1918, a flu pandemic ripped through the global population with such speed and virulence that by the end of the following year an estimated 40 million people would be dead. Where did this particular flu strain come from, and what made it so deadly? 85 years later, virologists and epidemiologists the world over are still hunting down the answers to those two critical questions.

Abiogenic Oil, Is It The End Of Peak Oil Fears?

Oil.  Some of the everyday uses are obvious.  We use oil as fuel for heating and transportation, we make plastics and textiles from oil, and many common medications such as A.S.A. are also made from petroleum.  The dependency on oil by modern society is likely understood only to a small degree by many of us.  Sure, we all "think" we know how dependent we are on the black gold, but most of us likely underestimate it.

Movie Monday - Perfect Disaster, Ice Storm

This Week On Movie Monday

Perfect Disaster, Ice Storm

Well, watching the first real snow fall of the year outside my window, I got a bit nostalgic and thought of the event that caught me so off guard, that I vowed never to be vulnerable again...and my prepping journey began.

Discover Chanel documents the ice storm that hit eastern Canada in January of 1998.  Hundreds of thousands of people were left without power, many for days or weeks as several inches of freezing rain covered trees and toppled power transmission lines.

Taking A Moment To Remember...

We are ever grateful, and shall never forget.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Do you have your Food Storage in place yet?

We had a bit of a run there in October with the Ebola / ISIS scare. Who knows what will come of these issues moving forward. But I learned something. It was very interesting to me how quickly our supply chains dried up. And it's not that the supply chain wasn't producing at normal levels, or that there wasn't stock waiting to go, there was and plenty of it by normal standards. All it takes though is a few government agencies to walk in and a manufacturers stockpile is all gone, in a day.

So to me, October was a great reminder to all of us who care about being prepared. Are you? I'm going to keep this simple and to the point. The best time to prepare is before the scenario is staring you in the face. If you wait until the disaster hits, it only takes a few hours for the shelves to be bare and then there will be nothing left. Truly, nothing left.

Do you have your food storage in place yet?

Product Review - The Greenhouse Of The Future

So, you wanna build a greenhouse you say?  That's a great idea that has lots of benefits.  You can extend the growing season much later into the fall, get a jump start on those veggies with long growing seasons like tomatoes and peppers, and even boost production during the regular growing season.  The only question is, how to build one.

Sure, you could hire a contractor or get a kit from the local building supplies company, but this just won't fit with what you want to do.  Kits come in predefined sizes only, which are usually too big or too small for your needs.  Contractors cost money and are rarely willing to work with alternative building methods.

You want something that you can build yourself, with the help of a few friends perhaps, and at the same time, make use of some alternative materials like used tires as an example.  Enter The Greenhouse Of The Future.

How many time have you bought an ebook, thinking you were going to get something a lot more than what was sent to your ereader?  Without fail, it seems that these inexpensive offers of "complete guides to whatever" fall dismally short on details, instructions, illustrations, and of course, after sale support!  Even with the best authorship, sometimes a concept just can't be visualized.

The Greenhouse Of The Future addresses all these problems by incorporating a 170 page ebook, comprehensive and complete construction plans, and video explanations and demonstrations that are full of tips and tricks derived from first hand experience.  Here, you can have a sneak peek at the video...

 Now, I'll be the first to admit that this project may not be for the backyard gardener who just needs a few square feet to get seedlings started earlier in the spring, but if you are looking for a way to grow year round in a Canadian climate, either for your family of four or your survival group of several families, then this is the best solution I have found to date.  Make no mistake, this will require some effort and materials, but the structure is a solid and permanent one.

In addition, you will build knowledge of some interesting concepts such as passive geothermal, passive solar energy, thermal mass, passive ventilation, using earth tubes, and much more that can then be used on other projects you have in mind.

Do you remember my mention of after sale support earlier?  That is where this package really stands out above so many other similar packages.  Along with a 30 day money back guarantee, you will receive 3 months of access to the S.A.F.E. support network, which can be activated only once you are ready to begin your project!

Don't forget, it's all about the details.  You will also get a full set of construction plans, material list and tool list!  This is a complete package.  You can order the DVD which includes the video, the ebook, and the apendices, or the online package that gives you unlimited streaming and downloads.

To order the DVD($44.95) or online package($39.95) visit Greenhouse Of The Future.

Movie Monday - Top Ten Natural Disasters

This Week On Movie Monday


National Geographic released this film in 2013.  Using eye witness video, historical archive and cutting edge CGI, they not only reveal the key moments that turned a natural phenomenon into a human catastrophe, but explain why the disaster they’ve selected is a genuine game-changer, worthy of its place as a one of the Top Ten Natural Disasters.
