I’m Gaye, just an ordinary gal trying to make sense of our changing world. I am addicted to prepping, DIY projects, adult coloring books, and ballroom dancing. I live what I call a strategic life and believe you should too. Everyone needs to prepare for the worst and live for the best. Won’t you join me?
Remember: Buy what you eat and you’ll eat what you buy. You have to rotate through your stock or be faced with bad food. Some use by dates on packages are nothing more than a number to move it off the shelves or dupe the gullible into trashing it (that box of salt with a use by date of June 2015? The cardboard will disintegrate before the salt goes bad). Other items are very literal with the use by dates. Do your research.

I live in Florida with lots of Hurricane season, Tornado, Flood, Ice Storm, Blizzard, Tsunami, Earthquake, Zombie Apocalypse. here is one people arent familiar with, a trucker strike. if they dont run the trucks, there will be no food delivered and the grocery store shelves will go bare. how serious is this? hubby bought me a greenhouse so we could start growing our own food. when the Obamacare deal goes through, many people will be looking for food when they lose many hours and pay. With a truckers strike and empty grocery store shelves, thats not a good combination. when the shelves sent bare during the hurricanes, there were riots at Walmart over water and baby formula.
As predicted, the violence in South Africa is ratcheting up. A police station was torched in Zwelihle and the police are struggling to maintain order. President Cyril Ramaphosa is holding firm on his drive to expropriate land from whites without compensation. It should be noted that it is not the disafected whites that are driving the violence, but the blacks who are attempting to engage in a violent land invasion. President Ramaphosa promised this wouldn’t happen, but like usual, libtards are out of touch with reality. Thanks to S.M for the links.
I would rather have my trusty shotgun as opposed to a baseball bat and harsh language if there were a bunch of people trying to knock down my door any day. So, with that in mind, below are my list of the top 5 firearms you need to get your hands on now.

I totally agree: Do NOT overwhelm yourself. Go one day (or paycheck) at a time. I do all of the food buying in our family and, I have to agree, it is extremely easy to get overwhelmed worrying over all the numbers.

You’ll hear some cultists talking from the edge of the collapsed bridge above you – you can take them out now or wait until you get closer. Use the grapple point on the broken bridge to climb up and swing your way to the other side.
The ATF recently published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on bumpfire stocks, redefining them as “machineguns.” This NPRM is worse than I had anticipated This is in part because the new rule has no Grandfather Clause. By the ATF’s own estimates there are more than 350,000 American bumpfire stocks (worth about $96 million) already in circulation. The proposed rule would declare these all contraband unregistered machineguns, with no compensation to their owners, and no method provided to pay the $200 tax to register them. (Because of the FOPA Hughes Amendment machinegun freeze of 1986.) Therefore, owners would be required to: a.) destroy them, or b.) permanently disable them, or c.) surrender them for destruction. If put into force, this would clearly be either an “illegal exaction” or an unconstitutional “taking”. This ex post facto law would fly in the face of many decades of Federal rulemaking and Federal jurisprudence, which until now has almost uniformly included grandfather clauses whenever there are bans enacted.
Keep in mind sanitary napkins, as they have multiple uses other than intended, ie: wound dressings, wet and use as a heat relief head dressing, etc etc. When shopping for your survival items always ask yourself “What ELSE could I use this for in a SHTF scenario.” There are numerous sites that are just loaded with info, but I LIKE Back Door Survival. Be careful of so called Survival sites/blogs that demand a joining fee. Many of them are nothing but rip offs. For example there is one site that continually advertises FREE stuff. All you have to pay for is the shipping cost. But with a little research you can find the exact same items for sale at a cost (including shipping, if any) for a lot less. Example: One site was advertising handcuff keys for free, just pay shipping of $4.95. I found the exact same keys for sale on Amazon for 0.97 with NO shipping costs. Money is hard to come by so spend it wisely! 😉

Russ, there’s something rotting up there on the roof, I saw one of ‘them’eagles perched on the nearby radio tower with something in its claws the other day. Pretty sure it glided over and dropped that sucker and now it’s baking up there in the sun. You’re going to have to find some way up there and clean it up. – Ben
