Herb Seed Winner and Other Stuff

Planning a giveaway ending on Christmas Eve you know I'm not going to be notifying you Christmas day if you're the winner, but I actually did notify the winner about a week ago and I'm just now getting around to posting it.  The winner of the Culinary Herb Seeds in a Can is Brooke M.!  Congratulations to Brooke and may you have a fantastic time with your herb garden :)

M.D. Creekmore from The Survivalist Blog has written a new ebook called “It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)”.  It's only 29 pages (and some of those are shelf life charts).  It covers the basics of survival planning including water, food, weapons, medical and more.  Plus it's free to download.  Now, I've had an alternate opinion expressed in the comments about this e-book and the link it refers to makes some valid points.  However, I will leave the link to the e-book up as there is quite a lot of useful information in it--just use common sense and get second or third opinions or do your own testing on everything you read before you risk your life on it.  Yes, that even includes what I write on this blog.

In other news of the week, I learned that if you forget to put the salt in your bread it doesn't taste nearly as good.  Only 4 1/2 loaves to go before I get to make more bread. :)

I've got a couple new prep things added to my new year goals.  I want to find out more about the CERT program and maybe take their training and also get ham radio licensed.  Should be fun.  What are you wanting to accomplish this year?

I just want to make it through another year with no major flailex's or traumas.

Creekmore's book is dangerous. He is giving out false and potentially fatal information in it.

Please remove the link to it.

Here are some more details:

For my new year I would like to excavate a sizable basement to my house and bury a giant water tank in the back yard. Since that will likely not happen,and my storage space is small, I'm cleaning my Mother's basement of 40 yrs of clutter and putting some stuff over there. (5 mins. away by car,). If a disaster happens and I can't get over there, my mother will eat well even if I don't. : )
