There is very little in the way of helping parents explain to young kids about prepping. Yet alone, children's books to help get them to read without some left wing PC garbage tossed in. Enter in to our little corn of the web a series written by Kermit Jones Jr and illustrated by Christy Brill.
The main character in this series is an ant. I'm not sure if Kermit got the idea from American's Networking To Survive, or from Proverbs 6:6-8 "Go to ant, O sluggard: behold her ways, and be wise. For she having no guide, governor, nor ruler, Prepareth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in harvest." (GNV) But the point is, awesome job. These are the perfect Christmas gift under the tree or stocking stuffer for your young children in your family... or cousins, nephews, etc. #1 on the list for children books for homeschooling too.

All smart preppers know, once disaster occurs, the biggest threat to life and safety is other human beings. What happened in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina is an example. While pockets of neighbors looked out for other neighbors, roving bands of thugs looted businesses and homes. The mayor and police chief issued orders for police to shoot looters on site.
A DIY home security system adds a layer of protection to your home, and it gives you even more peace of mind because you've installed it and control it. Many of today's models have several layers of backup so they continue to work during power outages. The company Lifeshield.com, for example has a "two-brain" system where, if one control box is disabled, the second kicks in and takes over. It also offers backup to its Internet connections through cellular and phone lines.

I have accepted a few guest posting requests recently and they have worked out very well, as a result I am posting this as an intro on what I require as far as guest posts. I am including this under Product and Business review category because I am also starting on a new project with some familiar faces, and will not myself be accepting requests for product reviews, although will still post reviews from guest authors.
The first rule about guest posts is that you must send me, or allow me access to the html source code of the post. It just makes it easier for me to check it 'just encase' there are links to malaware etc, something I don't want on my site. You can have outbound links in the post, and I do not require that they be marked with the 'nofollow' tag, however if the link isn't related to topics on this site, or is not a 'paid link', I would prefer you add the nofollow attribute to it. ALL links must be targeted to a new page ("_blank"). BTW, by 'paid link' I mean a link placed in your guest post to some web URL that you get paid for, not me. I will not add confirmation codes to the website itself for 'payperpost' etc, confirmation codes within the article itself however is allowed. I reserve the right to edit the text within the hyper-links to avoid conflicts with my plugins (see below), generally this means I will add to the text an underscore so that my plugins ignore it. "_"
Second, and perhaps more important, the article MUST be related to the topics already posted about on my site. Take a look at the "subjects" link in the menu to see what I mean.
Third, articles can not have links to amazon. I use a plugin which links to my amazon affiliate account on key words already and conflicts will cause them to crash.
Guest posts from now on will only appear on the blog on Fridays, on a first come first serve basis. This does not mean that I will accept all posts, they must be original content, they must include an author bio, and they can not be 'illegal' or 'liable' at my discretion.

While 1960s parents were serious about their anti-nuke bunkers, many Baby Boomers fondly remember playing in their parents' fallout shelters. They were built in split level crawl spaces or Midwest tornado shelters, and few of them were comfortable enough to live in for more than a day or two. One typical plan from that era, according to Wardomatic, recommends a room about the size of a small bedroom that somehow includes cooking, eating, sleeping, and recreational spaces. Today's emergency preppers are smarter and more realistic when it comes to planning shelter for weeks and months on end. Spacious and well-stocked, today's emergency bunker can be as comfortable as the family home.
