10 Uses for Diatomaceous Earth

I am super excited to share 10 Uses for Diatomaceous Earth with you today. Before now I had only heard of DE, but never used it. I asked my FaceBook 'fans' what they thought. Here is what they said: Danielle S. says "In my smoothies (yep, I eat it!). In the garden for various reasons." Deborah W. says "We sprinkle it on dog food and chicken feed. Seemed to keep the flies down. Flies were…

Valley Food Storage Review

I was recently given the chance to do a review on some Valley Food Storage food. I will tell you now, I was pleasantly surprised. I had a done a review of a similar product and had stomach issues for a few days. Not the case with this brand. We chose to have this for lunch on a rainy, summer day. Doesn't look like much. I thought no way will this feed the 3 of…

Persied Collapse Review

This is book 1 in the Perseid Collapse Post Apocalyptic series. You can also read my review of the prequel, The Jakarta Pandemic. I had started to read this and then saw there was a prequel. So, being the OCD'r that I am, I had to read The Jakarta Pandemic first, then came back to The Perseid Collapse. You wouldn't have to do this, but it did help with getting to know the characters so…

The Jakarta Pandemic {book review}

I saw on Facebook awhile back about the author, Steven Konkoly's, book series going on sale on Amazon. I purchased The Perseid Collapse and began to read it right away. A few pages in and it dawned on me, this was actually book 2, well book 1, but there was a prequel. I then bought the prequel, Jakarta Pandemic, and read it first. I have since finished The Perseid Collapse as well and will be…

The Organic Canner Review

The Organic Canner written by Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper I am a self taught canner. I have always had this perfect little daydream of being in the kitchen of the house my dad grew up in, in Northern Minnesota, with my grandma. Her teaching me all of her little tips on how to can. Alas, that was not to be so I taught myself. The hello YouTube. Part of my preparedness lifestyle is…

The Long Road {Book Review}

Book 2 in a 4 book series, The Long Road picks up after The End. Again, I couldn't put this one down and was a fairly quick read. One afternoon. If you aren't already a prepper (you read my blog and don't have at least water and TP stored?) you will wish you were. This book is one of those that will make you think and wonder "Will it really be that way?" Some characters…

The End {Book Review}

If you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift then this is it! I don't say this lightly when it comes to books. I read a lot and in the last 2 years have found I enjoy this Post Apocalyptic genre. While there a a few swear words, what book in this genre doesn't have them and I have learned to get past it. (I share this not to judge, but so you know)…

Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern {Review}

Here is a come-as-you-are review. Yes, Monkey Cupcake is making an appearance. After we recorded this I showed the lantern to The Principal and he loved it! Wants to buy one for each BOB (bug out bag) So, obviously I have a female point of view. Not a bad point of view, just not the same as a male thought process. You can grab your own if The Principal hasn't bought them all: Click Here…
