0

Written by Lucas Cappel   Many people are yet to embrace the culture of keeping diaries and journals as they find it hectic and unnecessary. Many will argue that diary keeping will steal some minutes of their rather busy day. Others may hold the opinion that it will bring back irrelevant memories that have nothing to do with the present and would only make a person hate their past.

5 Summer Survival Threats You Should Look Out For

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I love summertime, a chance to kick back and take some time off.  Kids are out of school for the summer and the pace has slowed down.   The summer also signals a slowdown in preparedness – I know… even blog visits get a bit slower.   People go out of town, go on vacation and relax, which is just fine.  But summer also has its own share of dangers that are often overlooked in […]

Written by Kylie Sophia Fitch Emergency preparedness is more important than ever. You don’t need to live in Tornado Alley to prepare for a disaster or home emergency—they can strike anyone, anywhere.
