Thanks, APN, for the new masthead!

Yeah, computer ingenuity is not my forte, but I appreciate others' talents in this area--in this case, thanks to APN, for the new and improved masthead for the Idaho Preppers Network! I think this is a great example of the beauty of Idaho....

It's that supply thing again...

And it looks like a lack in the supply is coming, and staying for awhile according to the links in this post over at Coffee with the Hermit. The supply-demand balance, especially for things like wheat, is at a scary point. Can't hurt to have some food storage set aside, because even if there is still supply, looks like the prices won't go anywhere but up, at least for a while.
Thanks, Hermit Jim, for the info!

Humor can be relative...

Received the following e-mail message recently in my inbox recently (sorry that I don't know the original source, but thanks, whoever you are) :

The Government has issued a travel warning due to the cold weather.

They suggest that anyone travelling in the current icy conditions should make sure they have the following:

Blankets or sleeping bag
Extra clothing including hat and gloves
24 hours worth of food
Rock Salt
Flashlight with spare batteries
Road Flares or Reflective Triangles
Empty gas Can
First Aid Kit
Booster cables

I looked like an idiot on the bus this morning!

End of e-mail

Ok, I thought this was pretty clever when I saw it. Here's the thing--with the weather in Illinois, many people had problems (whether they were in a bus or in their cars) last night and this morning, and I bet they wouldn't find the thought of having extra supplies with them in their situation very amusing. You can read about it here. Just something to think about--during cold, wintry weather (or any weather, really) you might want to think about packing a little something along with you if there's any possibility you might find yourself stranded--in a car, bus, or wherever you may be...
