This month is our 3rd year blogiversary. That’s quite remarkable, don’t you think? (We certainly do!) My how time flies when you are having fun.
To celebrate this milestone, we are having a giveaway. Everybody loves free things, right? Here’s your chance to win. And what will you win? The most remarkable book National Geographic Guide to Medicinal Herbs.
Learn about 72 of the most important, most popular, most recognized healing herbs. The book provides scientific research yet is easy-to-understand. (No scientific mumbo jumbo here.) Learn the age-old healing powers of Mother Nature’s finest plants.
These herbs are readily available where you live — you don’t have to trek to the rainforests of Brazil to get them (but you can go there for other reasons if you want to).
All you have to do is enter a comment below and share with us one thing that you have done to become prepared — or a preparedness goal that you WILL accomplish.
The giveaway will run until midnight July 28.
We will randomly select a winner from the comments and post the winner on July 29.
So hurry! Don’t wait a moment longer. Post your comment today to be entered into our giveaway.
Have you noticed all of the buzzing in the air lately? There seems to be a lot of stinging “no-see-ums” and regular see-ums like mosquitoes, bees, flies and other annoying stinging insects this year. I think it probably has something to do with the moister than usual weather – I’m guessing.
Ready or Not #221: Bug Bites Be Gone gives you a great topical remedy that takes away the bothersome itch from those pesky bugs! The nice thing about this remedy is that it is made from items that you already have.
Do you ever find that you have fresh vegetables spoiling in your fridge before they get eaten? Do you want to encourage your family to eat more fruits and vegetables? Ready or Not #110: Fresh Veggies shares ideas how to solve these problems — and gives lots of other good advice for handling fresh vegetables.
As citizens of this great nation we just celebrated our Independence Day. It was wonderful – parades, bands playing, military men and women dressed in their dress uniforms, flags flying everywhere. Not to mention all of the barbeques and fireworks. It was a wonderful time; it is a wonderful nation.
But what are you doing about your own personal independence day? Ready or Not #220: Independence Day explains how personal independence is just as important as our national freedoms we have because of those who have served in our military.
