You got it right Mr. Stephen King

April 30, 2009 - You got it right Mr. Stephen King!" By Joseph Parish. Time for a little humor folks. I am confident that there is just about no one in the western world who has not heard of Stephen King. Being an avid collector of Stephen King’s books I have managed to amass every first edition that was published including several with both a European and American version. I have always considered “The Stand” to be Mr. King’s best work so far. He stylishly managed to merge the unexpected and unusual with a genuine possibility for a climatic episode. It so happens that perchance Stephen was foreseeing in his imagination of this novel for it is highly possible that we are presently in the same state of affairs as the characters portrayed within his book. Here is a fictional piece that I recently wrote. It should be taken with a grain of salt. Click here

April 25, 2009 - "Bacteria can be present in snow" By Joseph Parish. Many people remember the tongue in cheek comments made concerning eating of yellow snow however, recent investigations have now reviewed that it is no longer merely the yellow snow which one should not digest. Current research that has been conducted is concluding that all the unique snowflakes which fall from above may possibly contain an abundance of potentially dangerous bacteria. Click here

Making Emergency Non Maple Flavored Syrup

It is sweet tasting substance which is often eaten on pancakes, French toast, waffles, or cornbread.

Canning that tasty Lobster

April 19, 2009 - "Canning that tasty Lobster" By Joseph Parish. During the Y2K scare I was determined to not only be really prepared but to do it in style. Now when I say really I mean really. I didn’t want to just survive. I wanted to do it in a style that I was accustomed to. I went out and purchased a 30 plus foot motor home specifically for Y2K and proceeded to equip it with the finer things in life. I stocked up on bottles of red and white wine (This was really a good excuse I think), cans of crab meat and of course lots of canned shrimp and lobster. It was not until later after Y2K that I discovered exactly how easy and economical it was to can my own lobsters in place of purchasing those cans which were already done. Click here

Freezing excess Cabbage the right way

April 18, 2009 - "Freezing excess Cabbage the right way" By Joseph Parish. Occasionally good deals come along and it becomes desirable to grab up a lot of a certain vegetable. This was the case with cabbage. However, lets face it no matter how much you like cabbage enough is enough. Jus the same when you are afforded the opportunity to find cabbage for ten cents per pound you want to store up as much as you can. Unfortunately if left alone the cabbage would go bad in a short period of time. Click here

Quick food storage camouflaging

April 15, 2009 - " Quick food storage camouflaging" By Joseph Parish. I am one of the privileged people that has a separate food storage area however many people lack the suitable space to stockpile even small quantities of food let alone to provide storage for a complete years supply. Their shelves and closets are required for necessary items such as clothing and dishes. This just does not leave extra places to put those cans of food. It is thus apparent that one must exercise their imagination to create a means for storing that extra food in the event that an emergency situation presents itself. Click here

Joe's Ten Essentials of Survival

April 14, 2009 - "Joe’s Ten Essentials of Survival" By Joseph Parish. We all have some sort of an idea what we would take with us if we were going to be stranded on a deserted island well you could look at the concept of survival preparation in the same light. As Y2K approached, I was determined not to take any chances and I was determined not to be forced to live a life of a pauper if events turned to the worst. I went out and purchased a 33-foot motor home just for Y2K. Stocked it properly with various foods including shrimp in the can, crab meat in the can and lobster in the can. As I said, I was going out in style. Several gallons of wine was purchased and stored within the motor home. In addition, I placed the normal array of survival foods and items in it. As the final hours rolled near I filled, the water tanks with fresh water and sat down to watch TV. Click here

Hourseradish from Field to Table

April 11, 2009 - "Horseradish from Field to Table" By Joseph Parish. Horseradish is cultivated for its dense, fleshy white, hard root. When ready for processing it displays a coarse yellowish-brown skin with a pale fleshy body. This member of the mustard family matures to about twelve inches long and is shaped somewhat as a carrot. The roots are usually absent of the characteristic pungent bite and aroma until the contained oil is released by grating and it then easily brings forth tears to ones eyes. When horseradish is prepared fresh from the root it has a much sharper zest than its commercially prepared cousin. Click here

What is a Survivalist?

April 9, 2009 - "What is a Survivalist?" When some people hears the word “survivalist”, instantaneously a portrait of a gun-toting, camouflaged burly man may come to mind. This is not surprising since Hollywood has painted these unique breeds of humans in a somewhat negative light. For instance, the 1990 movie Tremors, included in its list of characters Burt and Heather Gummer, a fanatical survivalist couple who had a basement stockpiled full of weaponry and other survival gear. In addition, there have been others since. However, what exactly is a survivalist and what benefits are there to being one? Click here

Storage of Oil used for cooking

April 3, 2009 - "Storage of oil used for cooking" By Joseph Parish. It wasn’t too many years ago that I was employed at a local oil refinery. Not the kind of refinery which processed crude oil into oil which is used in our vehicles but rather the kind of refinery which makes cooking oil. This particular refinery specialized in soybean oil. My job there was to ensure that the product that was being made was top quality and completely fit for human consumption. Click here

Using the Reynold's Handi-Vac System

April 1, 2009 - "Using the Reynolds’s Handi-Vac System" By Joseph Parish. A while back I was fortunate enough to locate one of the Reynolds’s Handi-vac systems in our local Wal-Mart department store. It was not a costly item and so I decided to pay my ten dollars or so and give it a try. At the same time I put in another ten dollars for 9 gallon bags that are used in conjunction with the machine.
