Coping with Survival Stress

August 31, 2009 - "Coping with Survival Stress" By Joseph Parish. We are all feeling the bite from the economic changes which are taking place in every phase of our lives. These changes are particularly evident when we are laying the framework for our emergency survival plans. These unexpected changes can be some of the most stressful times especially when combined with the current state of the country. Add to your discontents the government’s response to specific actions, the unemployment situation, a possible disaster or the potential death of a loved one and your life can become very devastated.

Since the White House now it projecting a much larger deficit then previously expected they are acting surprised and amazed.

An open letter to Gordon Brown

August 26, 2009 - "An open letter to Gordon Brown" By Joseph Parish. I have but a single question to relate to you Mr. Brown.

Therefore it certainly appears that you place little value in American life. Click here

Here we go with the race card again

August 24, 2009 - "Here we go with the race card again" By Joseph Parish. I was totally amazed when I recently read the New York Governor Paterson’s indication that he is experiencing his low popularity standings merely as a result of racism. Just because people feel that he should not seek another term as governor has nothing what so ever to do with racism as much as it does his negative attitude and his failure at effectively functioning in his elected position. I regretfully inform the governor that it is not the color of ones skin which is creating his political problems but perhaps it is more his inabilities to operate and manage a state the size of New York.

August 12, 2009 - "Late tomato planting" By Joseph Parish. Can you already taste that juicy vine ripened tomato that you pick fresh from your own garden area? I can, but I simply did not get my plants in early enough. I know most of you backyard gardeners have probably already planted your tomatoes and are patiently awaiting the fruits to develop.

Survivalist uses for solar landscape lights

August 5, 2009 - "Survivalist uses for solar landscape lights" By Joseph Parish. Here is an interesting thought that surely must have crossed many people’s minds in the past. As I sit on my patio I watch the solar lights that surround it and firmly believe that every survivalist should have several of these solar powered landscape lights for use at their bug out retreat or their home in the event of an emergency.

Selection of a sleeping bag for your survival kit

August 2, 2009 - "Selection of a sleeping bag for your survival kit" By Joseph Parish. Most of the active survivalists which I know have some sort of sleeping bag in their “Box of Goodies” in the event that they would need to rough it on a possible bug out event. As a rule, it would be wise to selection a sleeping bag which is effective to at least zero degrees, but you should keep in mind that there are additional requirements which need to be considered as well. As a consumer you are presented with a host of materials such as goose down, quallofil or hollofil as a fill material in your sleeping bag. Therefore, in order to make a wise choice you should be aware of what the pros and cons are for each of these insulation types. Click here
