Preps, I mean. Recommended by the fedgov. Six-months of personal preparedness is an extrapolation, not an actual stated recommendation, but read on. Via Shel comes news of a recent report (PDF) from the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council and the Department of (Achtung!) Homeland Security. I haven’t read the full report yet. I’ve skimmed it and run several searches for relevant terms. I’m certainly going to read the rest. The introduction at OffGridSurvival.com (which is slightly misleading) begins: In a new report from the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council and published by the Department of Homeland Security, the government is…16 Comments
The first two recipes are for you if your version of holiday decadence involves Demon Liquor.
The third recipe is if your preference is for Demon Weed.
The fourth recipe (a familiar dish to longtime blog readers) merely involves Demon Calories, forbidden white foods, and fats.

It’s the cold months to come, because they make us stronger. Christmas? I’m a fan. But the 21st is also notable because it’s the (traditional) feast time of the northern peoples of the world, and you can see multiple cultures built physical devices to track the solstice, places like Newgrange in Ireland, Stonehenge in England and the High Bank Works at Chillicothe in North America.

Starting Thursday, December 20, and ending Christmas Day, the kindle edition of Basics of Resistance will be on sale. It starts at $0.99 and gradually works its way back to its normal $3.99, so the earlier you grab a copy, the better. Kit Perez, who manages the book’s Amazon account, also tried to put the paperback on sale, but Amazon wasn’t having it. Sorry. But Merry Christmas, kindlefolk.2 Comments
