Monday Musings 8/31/2015 Starting a New Project

This post is by Bernie Carr,

Welcome to another Monday Musings, where we share interesting links about all things preparedness, as well as updates on the blog.

First the blog updates…

What I am reading this week  Over the summer, I took a small break from reading non-fiction books and instead read different fiction genres such as Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and a few others.  In case you are curious, both were vastly different and were interesting to read.  Now I am back to reading preparedness books and currently reading the following:

Start Prepping!: GET PREPARED-FOR LIFE: A 10-Step Path to Emergency Preparedness So You Can Survive Any Disaster by Tim Young

Prepper’s Natural Medicine: Life-Saving Herbs, Essential Oils and Natural Remedies for When There is No Doctor by Cat Ellis

I will post reviews soon!

My next project  I am eagerly awaiting delivery of my Back to the Roots Water Garden parts so I can get started with an aquaponics system for a small space.  According to the Amazon description:

  • New version now includes silent, submersible water pump and 360° view
  • Self-cleaning fish tank that grows food
  • Fish waste feeds the plants; Plants clean the water
  • Everything you need to get started, including water pump, organic seeds and a discount coupon for a Betta fish
  • Designed and manufactured in the USA

I am excited to try this and will post about it about it as well.
