Welcome to another Monday Musings where we cover blog updates and interesting stuff to share with you.

First the blog updates.

Daily news box added.   I’m working on adding a news box with headlines from NewsMax.  Still a work in progress, I’m still trying to fit the box properly.   We don’t cover politics in our discussions but as preppers, we do pay attention to the news.

Updates from our sponsor Camping Survival:

  • New survival food blog.  This site is dedicated to bringing delicious recipes using survival food, which you can eat now or when an emergency strikes. See

Don’t miss the sale.  There still time to take advantage of the Mountain House Sale at Ready Made Resources.  Sale ends today, February 18th.

Now for the links…

Another threat to internet privacy.  Just when you thought SOPA and PIPA were no longer on the table, here comes CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.  Only this time, tech companies such as Facebook and Microsoft are in favor of this one.  See this article from Lifehacker for more details about this new threat:  All About CISPA, the Bill that Wants to Erode Your Online Privacy

While we’re on the subject of privacy threats  EXCLUSIVE: Your employer may share your salary, and Equifax might sell that data

And now for something we really like   It’s still winter, but start collecting containers for your spring garden now.  Great ideas for container gardening (Willem).  Also see

Points to ponder on bugging out   A couple of good articles from Prepared Christian about threats and bugging out:  When would You Say It has Hit the Fan  

and Two Great Emails from Readers.  I particularly liked the section on No BOL?  You Still have Options about halfway down the page of the second article.

Take care and have a great week everyone!

  1. Chris’ article (referenced above – Prepared Christian) about when is it that we determine that the S has HTF, is a great read that does its job of provoking thought. He’s absolutely right, and makes a great analogy with the flu epidemic scenario… we know what an EMP blast is, right away, but are we really ready and aware enough to batten down the hatches when it needs to be done? Finally, anyone who hasn’t should read Chris’s post from the 18th on The Ten Commandments of Preparedness… awesome. Love your blog Bernie!

    • Hey Bob, I thought it was a really good article as well, one we all think about. Thanks for the comment!
