priorities in between TEOTWAWKI -and- TSHTF

The End Of The World As We Know It began early this year. You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. The S*** will probably Hit The Fan before this year is out. Economic collapse, food supply collapse, world war, cultural breakdown, civil war, attempts to force DNA-altering vaccines on many who will resist to the death, physical manifestations of disgust with career politicians … if you have been studying at this website and linked resources, you know a “Perfect Storm” of designed attacks on our way of life are coming our way very soon. Most serious scholars of the various assaults working to establish The New World Order figure it is coming to a head in October or November, with the […]

buying .38 Special ammunition

I heard rumors that guns and ammo were getting hard to buy. I found out recently just how true that is. I expected in the socialist, Marxist, anti-gun meccas that a sudden recognition that we are ultimately responsible for defending ourselves would empty the very few gun and ammo shops that managed to survive in liberal paradises. In my area that is definitely not the case. Here we have more guns than fingernails and more ammo than leg hairs. Nothing the news media sends our way can inspire a gunned-up neighborhood to run out and whimsically purchase a bunch more. However, Montana does have a few enclaves of blind sheep who are having the wool coverings removed from their eyes. […]

wonderful cookies

I shared this recipe on my website over six years ago. I still have not tasted a cookie that approached these really delicious, relative nutritious ones. I remember a road trip where I lived on these for the entire drive from sunrise to sunset. I am hankering to make a batch … well mostly to consume a batch, but the one normally has to precede the other. I notice I do not have any photographs of these jewels. I will return to this post and add the photo after I get a chance to see one. Here is the recipe as I published it in January 2014. Some time back when my metabolism allowed me to make and savor cookies […]

Stone Soup Kitchen

TEOTWAWKI, The End Of The World As We Know It is upon us. We are in the early stages, but the normal we had a year ago will not return in our lifetimes. We had a warning in Spring and have been granted a short reprieve, but it would be foolhardy to squander the next month. Every analysis I read and see indicates The Change will get worse, soon… much, much worse, and frightfully soon. I share much of that at this website and will continue to do so. Meanwhile, most of us agree that we have at least one good month to build our pantries. Few expect supplies to be as plentiful and easily accessed past October. Hardly any […]

Prepper Foods That Are Available Now With No Wait

While I am not advocating hoarding, I do think it is wise to put back a little extra to have on hand while the pandemic does what it is going to do. We can argue with others all day and the truth is that no one knows exactly how all this is going to play out over time. No matter how serious or not serious you may think that the actual disease is, you are going to be […]

honeydew

I enjoy my carnivorous plants a heckuva lot more than flypaper, to understate more than a little. The wonderful folks at California Carnivores provide insect control for me year after year. My honeydew from a couple years ago is still among the living – and presumably happy campers in my home. Officially known as drosera capensis, my honeydew is highly photogenic and wonderful for keeping little flying insects in check. Peter D’Amato, founder and principle at California Carnivores told me the little dewdrops at the end of the leaf hairs are ounce-for-ounce the stickiest substance known to man. Once an insect lands on one of these leaves it’s stuck. The leaf then curls up around, and digests the insect parts […]

economics and toilet paper

Gasoline prices in the teeth of incoming hurricanes are an excellent example of how price signals clue people to minimize their purchases where the supplies are rapidly dwindling and unlikely to be replenished at normal prices. Instead of having the first two motorhomes wipe out the supplies, faced with significantly higher prices, they buy just enough to get out of the evacuation zone, leaving more for the next arrivals at the storm-front gas station. Each purchaser buys only what they need to get out of the impact zone and out to suppliers where prices are normal. At a high enough price, someone will truck fresh supplies of gasoline into the teeth of the incoming storm, replenishing the depleted supply. No […]

avoiding shotgun purchase mistakes

I was asked to accompany a prospective first-time firearm purchaser to a gun store in North Carolina. She just wanted someone to cover her six. Good thing, as it turned out. The half-wit behind the counter wanted to sell her one of those Hollywood-cool-factor wrist-cracker 12-gauge shotguns. I helped her get out of the store and told her to find a different dealership. Even the much lower-recoiling 20 gauge pump-action shotguns I recommend would be uncomfortable and marginally controllable without the normal shoulder stock. If somebody is pushing the handgun-mode setup your direction, find a different somebody to work with. Much more recoil than a .38 Special is too much for beginner or intermediate handgun use. In shotguns, definitely a […]

free market in toilet paper

Gasoline prices in the teeth of incoming hurricanes are an excellent example of how price signals clue people to minimize their purchases where the supplies are rapidly dwindling and unlikely to be replenished at normal prices. Instead of having the first two motorhomes wipe out the supplies, faced with significantly higher prices, those drivers buy just enough to get out of the evacuation zone, leaving more for the next arrivals at the storm-front gas station.

your first home defense firearm

I published the information below a year ago, but am refreshing it now as many people wake up to the need for providing their own self-defense, family-defense and home-defense. There are many serious, fatal accidents looming when untrained, inexperienced people purchase firearms just cuz they suddenly recognize the utility and are able to purchase a gun. Single-shot guns are the simplest of all. The user places a round in the chamber when they are ready to shoot something, aim and shoot. The utility is limited and not a great choice for defense. Revolvers are also straightforward in that novices can readily see whether they are loaded or not, reducing some of the possibilities for negligent discharges, damage and death. […]

The Health Ranger yanks me off the Coronovirus fence

I have refused to get sucked in to either side of the virus reality debate. Partisans for both sides have long, well-established, thoroughly-warranted reputations for exaggerating, understating and flat-out lying more often than truthing. My guarantee has been that the second- and third-order effects will be dramatic and life-changing for all of us. That is still true, but having read the article and watched two ten-minute videos from Mike Adams has convinced me the very real effects of COVID will itself kill, sicken and weaken huge swaths of the world population. I highly recommend you review his look at the medical and political situation in the article and videos below. He is calm, thoughtful and absent the excesses typical […]

toilet paper

The media focused attention on toilet paper. Their slaves obediently soaked up every last roll coast to coast. It is a NOW WHAT? moment for those who are not ahead of the demand in their household. Invented in the late 1800s, people were pooping and surviving before that… as in FOR-EV-ER before that. Impossible we think. But some and perhaps all of us may have to think again. I will not analyze or itemize here. Chase these links to see some really good ideas that we may have to embrace sooner rather than later. Alternatives to Toilet Paper: What is Reusable Toilet Paper? What are the Alternatives? from Do-It-Yourself-Danielle About Toilet Paper First, the use of paper for toilet […]
