Been busy...

Well, the bees are busy at work, the garden is popping, and I keep craming every square inch full of things. I still have some room in the bean patch. Not for too much longer though. Should be through planting by end of this week. Hope you all are too. Here in the NC we are blessed with the long growing season. And can get two to three crops in one spring, summer, fall garden. Plenty of squash, cukes, beans, taters, maters, and fresh greens for salads. Might be a good time of you haven't already, to track down the old timers in oyur midst, and find out how they did what they did in the good ole days. Need old recipes, old methods of storing and preserving foods. I am going to try my hand at a few new things this year myself.

This summer is when things are going to get pressing, according to a few wise folks. Men that see the world for what it is, not what the made-up pretty boys and talking dolls say it is, with a smile added for effect of course. Some say as early as mid-July. I say, whatever you need to od, why not do it by July. That way, you are ahead of the brain craving zombie hoards. A water purifier is a must, a back up is required (2 is one, and one is none, remember that) P.A.C.E. yourself. P is for Primary, A is for Alternative, C is for Contingency, and E is for Emergency. If your plan is running to wally world for a couple for gallons of water for your backup, your plan is to die. If you don't have the plan now, you need to make it priority number 1! Not waiting another day, take a moment and think things through. Think about commonality of disaster. What you can do to cover your bases. Food, water, meds, flashlights, batteries, etc. All are necessary for what you could encounter. But, better prep for whats coming. The word is out, summer is going to be remembered as the summer of rage. I think that might be the understatement of the year. Hungry people might be a little pissed off. Just a little.

Are you ready for the revolution? You better be. If you plan to just hunker down and keep your nose clean, you still can be brought into it, just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Patriot, with Mel Gibson, while a movie is an example of how this could happen to a person trying to stay out. But I would advise picking a team. I know my side, and I ain't budging from it. Not one damn bit. I am not wanting a fight, but I ain't sitting in a corner whining either. North Carolinians have always been strong warriors, and could be depended on in battle to fight harder than most. I take pride in that. I pray we haven't all been neutered, but I have to admit, I have my doubts. That doesn't mean pick a fight, just stand ready. Forewarned is forearmed.

Having a water filter is crucial for me and my family, since we are chemical sensitive. I have found a filter at http://www.lifeionizers.com/?utm_source=A&utm_medium=B&utm_campaign=C that allows my family to comfortably drink water from our tap.
