Movie Monday - Secrets of the Castle - Episode 2

This Week On Movie Monday

Secrets Of The Castle

Episode 2


How many times have we heard that an EMP would send us back to midevil times?  As disturbing as that statement is, how many of us understand exactly what that would mean?  Have you ever wondered what it would take to build a suitable enclosure for defence?

Well, the BBC has done it again with the miniseries, Secrets of the Castle.  A team of archaeologists and historians will spend six months learning how a castle is built, but also how many of the everyday items such as cookware were produced.

Meet the new kit on the block!



One of the things about living in a country as large as Canada, is that the types of environmental emergencies for which we need to prepare tend to vary from coast to coast. Earthquakes are the talk of the town on the West Coast while hurricanes and snow storms are all the buzz on the East Coast, and it doesn’t take much to stir up rumours of tornados as skies turn green and black clouds roll in over the beautiful Prairie fields.

Does one kit fit all? 

Certainly the survival gear, food and water found in any standard kit are useful across the nation. But what if you could tailor your kit so that it better fit the disaster most likely to hit your neighbourhood?


Well now you can! These new kits on the block do just that. For example, the Flood Survival Kits come with a mosquito net and waterproof pouch; the Hurricane Survival Kits come with a 15 inch pry bar; and the Tornado Survival Kits contain tornado specific supplies such as an NOAA weather radio, pry bar and a 4-in-1 emergency tool. Check out the remaining new kits here.

But that’s not the best part.

The new kit on the block is the envy of all other kits because it’s the only kit around that contains the super cool, super healthy, super emergency food - MegaOne Meal Replacement Protein Shakes!  Now every kit wants one.

These power house protein shakes are the pride and joy of these kits. Packed with 28 superfoods, these vitamin and mineral filled shakes are gluten, dairy, soy and GMO free.  15-30 servings per bag. Just add water, shake and stir. No cooking needed, no stoves and fuel to pack around. Your load just got lighter. For information on the MegaOne Meal Replacement Protein Shakes, see our article from last month.

And just when you thought you’ve heard it all…

These kits also come in three levels, depending on the extent of your preparation needs and on how many people will be relying on you for supplies: Basic, Deluxe and Premium. For 72 hours, the Basic and Deluxe kits have enough supplies for two people while the Premium kits accommodate four.

What are you waiting for? Welcome the new kit on the block into your family and be prepared, no matter what part of Canada your neighbourhood is in.

What's Your Question?

Prepping can be a wide and varied world with all sorts of scenarios to look at and prepare for. It doesn't matter if you are a seasoned prepper or a newbie to all this, what are your questions? What drives you crazy that you wish you understood better? I've prepared a two question survey and hope you'll take 30 seconds to fill it out. The results will be anonymous and won't be compiled or anything like that. The goal here is to see what common problems are out there with the hopes that I can help you get the answers.

The two questions are:
1) What are the top two questions you have about
getting your food storage in place?

and

2) What holds you back from preparing better?

You can complete the survey here:

Lastly, don't forget our Briden Christmas sale is on until  
Monday December 8th.

Movie Monday - Meltdown At Three Mile Island

This Week On Movie Monday

Meltdown At Three Mile Island

The Three Mile Island accident was a partial nuclear meltdown that occurred on March 28, 1979 in one of the two Three Mile Island nuclear reactors in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, United States. It was the worst accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant history. The incident was rated a five on the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale: Accident With Wider Consequences.
The accident began with failures in the non-nuclear secondary system, followed by a stuck-open pilot-operated relief valve in the primary system, which allowed large amounts of nuclear reactor coolant to escape. The mechanical failures were compounded by the initial failure of plant operators to recognize the situation as a loss-of-coolant accident due to inadequate training and human factors, such as human-computer interaction design oversights relating to ambiguous control room indicators in the power plant's user interface. In particular, a hidden indicator light led to an operator manually overriding the automatic emergency cooling system of the reactor because the operator mistakenly believed that there was too much coolant water present in the reactor and causing the steam pressure release.
The accident crystallized anti-nuclear safety concerns among activists and the general public, resulted in new regulations for the nuclear industry, and has been cited as a contributor to the decline of a new reactor construction program that was already underway in the 1970s. The partial meltdown resulted in the release of unknown amounts of radioactive gases and radioactive iodine into the environment. Dire predictions were made by anti-nuclear movement activists; however epidemiological studies analyzing the rate of cancer in and around the area since the accident, determined there was a small statistically non-significant increase in the rate and thus no causal connection linking the accident with these cancers can be made. Cleanup started in August 1979, and officially ended in December 1993, with a total cleanup cost of about $1 billion.
