I just got done reading Cyberstorm It's about the Internet going down, then NY city gets hit with back to back snowstorms. The latter of the two has happened before, but not when the Internet was down and without internet lots of things, in this day and age, don't work. Everything is online. Did you know you can use your smart phone to turn on the heat at home if you want. If you have…

Aftermath: A Story of Survival Review

I picked up my iPad to read this on Kindle. I thought oh, I will read a few pages and go to bed. HA! I haven't ready a good SHTF book in awhile.

How to Dehydrate Garlic

What does one do with this much garlic? How do you dehydrate garlic? I recently purchased garlic at Costco. Very affordable, but there was way more than I would use in a couple of weeks.
