COOKIES IN USE: NOTICE TO VISITORS FROM ABROAD: We appreciate our many vistors from outside the USA. I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.


NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

September 2011 National Preparedness Month

.


WHAT IS NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH?

National Preparedness Month (NPM) is held each September to encourage Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities.

Groups can register to become an NPM Coalition Member by visiting ready.gov and clicking on the NPM banner.

The Ready Campaign promotes individual emergency preparedness. Ready is a national public service advertising (PSA) campaign, to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies, including natural disasters and potential terrorist attacks.

The Campaign’s Web sites (ready.gov and listo.gov) and toll-free numbers (1-800-BE-READY, TTY 1-800-462-7585, and 1-888-SE-LISTO) provide Americans with free emergency preparedness information.

Greetings from Texas,
The best advice I can give is not to wait until the weatherman says "The End Is Near" before looking for emergency supplys. Our son wanted to get a generator when he found out we would be without power for a week a while back. The prices on them had doubled when you could find one.

I even called my sister in the Texas Panhandle several hundred miles away. Could she find and ship a generator. It was the same story there.

Canning and pickling, too. Still eating jar dinners and modifying recipes.
