Gone Before You Get There Pt 1

by , in

I'm starting a series on Being Prepared in a Crisis, Today is 'Gone Before You Get There Pt 1'
Some things I've covered before. We're human and we get complacent. 
Cataclysms, disasters, catastrophes, crises, calamities, and emergencies.
They happen more often than we’d like. They can range anywhere from a major earthquake, to a blizzard, to an uncontrolled wildfire, to a localized
house fire. The best way to survive any calamity is to be prepared. But how does one go about preparing for – who knows what?
It all seems so ambiguous and far removed from where we live our daily lives. We get up, take the kids to school, go to work, come home, eat, watch
a little TV, go to bed and do it again the next day (with a few vacations thrown in for good measure). In our own comfortable routines, we are lulled into a
sense of cocooned safety which leads to complacency. 
 But then something happens – a flood that wipes you out overnight.
Perhaps a tornado rips through, or a hurricane (like the now infamous Katrina), and you realize more fully how quickly an emergency can arise.
The bizarre ice storm that covered Northeastern Oklahoma in December of 2007 left hundreds of thousands without power for a week or more in
freezing weather. Few were prepared.
In July 2008, a major flood took out a large portion of Iowa and a small part of Illinois. Hundreds of thousands of people lost power and it was a
week or more before it was restored. Water-filled homes forced people to flee. There was no drinking water because of contamination. The sewers
were flooded out. When the people needed it the most, there were no FEMA trucks so others had to step in to help.
 A few months later, Hurricane Ike hit the Texas gulf coast and devastated the area including most of the coastal city of Galveston. Again, no power and
all systems that we take for granted were disrupted.
Michael Leavitt, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, stated “Any state, any community or for that matter any citizen that
fails to prepare, assuming the federal government can take care of them… will be tragically wrong.” While this was stated in regards to a disease outbreak it is equally true for any widespread massive tragedy.

 Before the Chaos
During a crisis, you might not have the time or resources, nor will you be in the right frame of mind to consider everything that you need to. This
reiterates the importance of making well-thought out plans and storing supplies before disaster hits and you’re surrounded by chaos. Therefore, you
need to take precautions now – before it’s too late.
It’s not an easy thing to know how to prepare for a disaster for the simple fact that they are all so dissimilar. On the surface, it seems an exercise in futility. Who knows what might happen? Or when? And who can do any preparation at all when a wildfire is bearing down on your home or a tornado hits? However, just because you can’t prepare for all, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare for any. There are ways and means of creating a preparedness state of mind. And that’s what Gone Before You Get There is all about. This study is designed to reveal a number of systems and tactics that are little known to the general public – tactics which could mean your very survival.  
The key, of course, is in preparedness! It’s in having a solid, well-thought out plan set in place well ahead of time. This includes mental adjustments as
well as physical.

Taking precautions can help us stay out of paralyzing fear if things should happen. Hopefully, the information contained in this series will arm you with the awareness needed for you to take action now – before it’s too late! 
Stay tuned for Gone Before You Get There Part 2!

Sprouting Seeds for Survival

by , in

Good Evening
How's your Thursday going so far?
Mine has been going well.

It's been on my mind to share about sprouting seeds for survival and in times of crisis.
Sprouts can be grown anywhere, in any climate, and in almost any condition, even in the dark.
It cost so little to sprout seeds and so simple even a child can do it.

You can sprout nearly any type of seed and harvest a tasty treat thatcan supplement for lack of fresh fruits and vegetables.

The most popular are alfalfa and mung bean sprouts. Sprouts are oneof the most complete and nutritional of all foodstested. Sprouts contain vitamins, minerals, proteins,and enzymes. In times of crisis, when you can’t growanything or get fresh produce anywhere, sprouts willprovide a consistently reliable source of fresh, high nutrient vegetables 
rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and B Vitamins. 
They pack a lot of wallop for something so small, so cheap, and so easy to grow.

All you need is a quart jar and a porous lid or covering and water. A lid with holes will do, or a
piece of nylon or cheesecloth secured with a rubber
band. They are ready to eat in about 3-5 days. You
can keep different types growing in rotation at all times.
Sprouts can be added to soups, scrambled eggs, meat dishes or mostany foods for added nutrition. Always add them after cooking as heat destroys
the nutritional value. Search resources to purchase seeds and begin practicingthe art of sprouting now. Add this item to your survival stockpile. This little
secret alone could save your life in times of crisis! But don't wait till a crisis,  start growing 
them now if your not already and add that extra nutrition to your meals. 

I like this Seed Sprouting Jar Kit shown above that includes 3 Sprouter Mason Jars with Screen Lids Stands and Trays - Sprout Germinator Set to Grow Your Own Organic Alfalfa Brocolli Microgreens Beans Seeds Sprouts from Kenley.
If you would like to investigate it further, check out the link below.
I hope you've found this information helpful.
Have a great night.

I wanted to share this video with Jeff Anderson I watched a few days ago.
It's a bit more radical than most of what I've previously shared. It sure has made me think a bit more about a lot of things. As Jeff mentions in the video some of us might be offended. I hope no one is. Take what is shared and if it works for you then awesome. If not that's fine too!
Here's a couple links to what Jeff is sharing if your interested after you watch the video.

🐝 Honey Bees Make the World a Better Place🐝

by , in

Yesterday Was World Bee Day 

It got me to thinking about how much I enjoy Forever Bee Honey made by the honey bees and the many uses I find for it in addition to putting it in my drinks and in or on food.
Sometimes my eyes get puffy and have dark circles. I create a Honey and Cucumber Eye Treatment that cools, soothes and lessens the puffiness and dark circles.
I use the following ingredients:
-1/2 teaspoon try chamomile flowers
-2/3 cup boiling water
-1 teaspoon Plain & Unflavored Aloe Vera Gel
-1 teaspoon Honey
-1 teaspoon peeled, seeded and minced cucumber

1. You will need a glass or ceramic jar or container that can hold aproximately 1/2 oz
2. Put the dried chamomile flowers in a heat proof bowl and pour the boiling water over them. Let them cool for 30 minutes then strain the water off.
3. Meanwhile, blend the aloe, honey and cucumber until smooth.
4. Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of the chamomile infusion you created earlier and stir until full combined. The consistency should be firm but easy to spread. Scoop into your jar, chill and apply gently to the area around your eyes.
You can store this in the frig for a week.
Also do be careful when applying any new to the sensitive area around your eyes. I'd suggest trying just a tiny bit to make sure you don't have any reaction.
In addition,  if your allergic to bee stings I'd not use this at all!

I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared.
