The images in the book are primarily colored Photographs that are stunning if read with a Kindle Fire or the Kindle Application on one of the tablet devices or the PC. Black and White readers will be also see them clearly but will just miss the added dimension available. Children will also find answers to kid-style questions like;

Are you prepared to survive in a shelter-in-place emergency situation?
Well, are you? If you are, pat yourself on the back. You're a step ahead of most people. The average citizen turns a blind eye to disaster preparedness and is largely unprepared to handle all but the most minor of emergency situations.
Do you really want to take a chance that could cost you and your family your lives?
The first thing most victims say is, "I never thought it would happen to me." Don't be caught unprepared when an emergency strikes that forces you to take refuge in your own home. The time to get ready for a crisis situation is now. Wait until the last minute and you'll be forced to pay top dollar for food, water and supplies, if you can find them at all. If not, you'll be forced to scavenge for scraps or beg for help, along with hundreds of thousands of others who couldn't be bothered to prepare.
The following topics are covered in this helpful and easy to read book:
- What hunkering down is and why it's preferred over bugging out.

Little man came up with this idea on his own. He takes his word list of the week and uses his letters that I've collected from all of his old games, magnets, etc. Works great for him. Put the word list down and then spell them out with the letters. He also writes them into his word notebook.
3-2-1 Mug Cake
1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
1 box of any flavor cake mix ( We love funfetti cake mix in our house, but you could use any flavor!)
Frosting for when it is done cooking! YUMMY
Pour both boxes of cake mix into a big gallon sized Ziploc bag.
Shake it up and make sure that it is all mixed up very well.
NOW THE FUN PART:
Take a clean coffee mug that is microwave safe. Combine 3 tablespoons of the cake mix with 2 tablespoon of water. Stir this up well and put into the microwave for 1 minute. You do not even have to grease the mug.
Put a dab of frosting on top and eat it right out of the mug.

America is in danger from within. This exclusive box set reveals eight key ways American values, traditions, and laws are being circumvented to undermine constitutional law and your personal freedoms.
Book 1: Once We Were Kings: The Decline and Fall of the American Empire
The first volume in this box set explores nine key ways federal government policies, social disorder, and a decline in moral values, are destroying democracy in America and threatening your constitutional rights and freedoms.
Book 2: Rise of the Police State and a New World Order
This book discusses what it means to live under an increasingly oppressive government and reveals how technology, police state tactics, false flags, and martial law may be used to destroy America as we know it.
Book 3: Death by a Thousand Cuts: Why America Will Lose the Global War on Terror
This report examines how our institutions, government policies, and self-inflicted intrusions into our private lives are eroding our sacred freedoms and destroying everything that defines us as a free people. America is dying, and unless good people stand up to stop the madness, future generations will refer to our current systems of constitutional law, free enterprise, and democratic republic ideals as legend, or perhaps even urban myths.
Book 4: Regulation Nation: How Government Agencies Circumvent the Legislative Process to Enact Laws and Rob Americans of Their Constitutional Freedoms
"Regulation Nation" documents how government agencies arrogantly flaunt the legislative process and the will of the people in the pursuit of their special interests at the expense of the governed. In addition to limiting the use of your private property and unveiling the invisible hand of commercial enterprise, the obscure and often vague nature of regulations makes it virtually impossible for honest citizens to conduct themselves in accordance with the law.
Book 5: Directive 51: An Expose of the President's Emergency Powers Directive and its Threat to Constitutional Government and Your Personal Freedoms
Leading the charge towards what many see as a trend towards tyranny, is a plan for the continuity of our federal government in the event of an emergency. Directive 51 is a game changer, and may well be the catalyst that sends the nation tumbling into the dustbin of history.
Book 6: UN Arms Trade Treaty: An Expose of the United Nations' Arms Trade Treaty and its Threat to National Sovereignty and the Potential Subversion of the Second Amendment and Your Gun Rights
"UN Arms Trade Treaty" attempts to peel back the shroud of secrecy surrounding the United Nations' efforts to regulate arms trade. While the author is an open supporter of legal civilian gun rights, this text presents an objective analysis of the arms trade treaty.
Book 7: Millennium Goals: A Critical Discussion of the United Nations' Eight Millennium Development Goals and Their Threat to National Sovereignty
Since its inception in the shadow of World War II and the rush to minimize global chaos at the hands of despots, the United Nations has transformed its charter of peace into a mandate to invoke domination of the world's nations, and to neuter national sovereignty. "Millennium Goals" takes a critical look at these goals and how the United Nations intends to implement them around the world.
Book 8: The Hidden War: Cultural Marxism and the Assault on American Core Values and Conservatism
If you like how America is being led, and the direction this nation is going, you will not want to read this book. However, if you have an innate distrust of government, or fear your values and interests are not being represented in City Hall or Washington, then this book is for you.
Take action today to discover how the America we all know and love is in danger of extinction.
Crockpot potato soup
7 Idaho potatoes
3 small baby onions
4 stalk celery
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups milk
2 cups Heavy Cream
1 Tbsp Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning
Salt and white pepper to taste
Peel the potatoes, wash and put in a bowl of water. Cut up the onions and celery. For this recipe, I used 3 small baby onions, but 1 large one will be okay. Cut the potatoes into 1 inch pieces and add to Crockpot. Add in the cut vegetables. I had some reserved chicken stock and poured it over the vegetables in the Crockpot. Add in 2 cups milk and 2 cups regular heavy cream or half and half is okay. Season with garlic and herb seasoning, salt and white pepper; cover and slow cook on low for about 6 hours or until the vegetables are fork tender. Serve hot with a grilled cheese sandwich on the side.

Some things that can be put into a child's bug-out bag are:
water or personal water filter. I have LifeStraw Personal Water Filter in our bug-out bags and plan on getting one just for him.
There are a few things that he is adding for making himself comfortable. He has a little solar powered radio that also has a charger on it for his tablet and kindle. Yeah, he tries to think of everything. LOL
He also is adding some maps of our area into his bag. Which was a great thing for a 7 year to think of. We hadn't even thought of it. Crazy how smart kids are.
a small knife
some stuff to add to bottled water for flavor, so he doesn't get bored with just drinking water!
small first aid kit
and there are sure to be some other things that he want to add. So far it is not very heavy. Could easily be carried by one of us if we had to. But, now he feels better knowing that he has his own bug-out bag.
Back then, building your own homemade wood stove meant finding an unused 50 gallon drum a starting from there, but times have changed and innovation has kicked in. Nowadays, using an unused discarded water heater has the capability to hold 3-50 gallons of water. The first step to finding the ideal electric water heater is by finding one without any damage and rust in the heater. Remove the steel wrap around the heater to check for corrosion and rust and remember that this step is very important due for health related concerns and should not be skipped. Next turn the heater on to its side to weld on the metal legs as this will keep the heater up.
The next step will involve making holes to the heater. So make sure to be careful as not to hurt yourself. Make a cut around the upside portion of the heater and weld it back upside down. It is this portion where you should make a few holes because this will aid in the circulation of heat during cooking. Make another hole in the back of the heater as an outlet which will allow the smoke to be taken outside your house via a metal pipe, add a lever here to make sure you can control the intake of air.
Build a grill to cook your food on by cutting vertical strips on the upside portion which you welded back to the stove. Once you're done with this step, you're pretty much done, but you can also add some ventilation pipes to your new "stove" and connecting them to your chimney (if any).
It's pretty amazing how people come up with their own ways to build and construct things and how many of us follow to find out that these innovations really do work. After following this guide on how to make a homemade wood stove, you can casually invite friends and family over because you've cooked dinner on your new homemade wood stove a.k.a. a discarded electric water heater. Interesting isn't it?
Economical in the use or appropriation of money, goods or provisions of any kind; saving unnecessary expense, either of money or of any thing else which is to be used or consumed; sparing; not profuse, prodigal or lavish. We ought to be frugal not only in the expenditure of money and of goods, but in the employment of time. It is followed by of, before the thing saved; as frugal of time. It is not synonymous with parsimonious, nor with thrifty, as now used.
Frugality Means :
Great for adding to soups! Easy to make. Frugal recipe for a crouton to add to soups. Taste great in potato soup. i buy bread in the deli that is marked down to use for making these. great way to save money.
