Ready or Not #204: Don’t Panic – Just Prepare

Just like the rest of the world, I have been watching and waiting to see how things will play out after the trifecta disaster (monster earthquake, devastating tsunami, nuclear meltdown) in Japan.  How devastating.  The good thing about the disaster happening in Japan (if there is a good thing) is that the Japanese nation is probably the most prepared country to deal with such devastation, unlike Chile, Haiti or New Zealand.  Their building codes are high, the public has been educated and everybody is pulling together.

Ready or Not #204: Don’t Panic – Just Prepare gives wise words of counsel about preparing for disasters.  Read it.  Now.

Ready or Not #101: Killing a Chicken or Cleaning a Fish

Vegetarians – don’t read this article.  If you are a bit squeamish around raw meat – toughen up.  A couple of articles ago I shared with you what my friends’ grandpa, Grandpa Motes, thought that every young woman should know how to do: drive a car, shoot a gun and milk a cow.  I agreed with him, but I want to take that self-sufficient thought little bit further.

Ready or Not #101: Killing a Chicken or Cleaning a Fish talks about preparing these meats ‘from scratch’ instead of depending on pre-prepared for from the store.
