Treat your Bees , They deserve it in the hot weather !

The dry weather can take a toll on your local Bee family. The Bees are an important part of your off the gird life and it is best for you to help them whenever you can. Try giving them some of your Watermelon crop in the harsh dry weather to help boost their moisture and sugar content. Honey Bees , especially in a nectar dearth,find ripe fruit very much to their liking. Make sure to split the watermelon or other fruits like plums,peaches,grapes,apples,figs or pears in half for them, as it is hard for them to break the skin of the fruits. Make the Bees as happy and healthy as you can as they work hard for us on our off the grid surroundings.

The Practical Beekeeping tips, know how and step-by-step instructions on how to start bee keeping right now! Click on the picture of the watermelon Bees above for more information about Practical Beekeeping  if you have an interest in this.

Zombies might smell

If the zombie do come it might be a good idea to be prepared in many ways. Not saying that the zombies are coming but it serves as a good example. Morale in emergency situations is important for battling mental fatigue.  Some things as simple as having good scents in your stockpile can help. Either way the men ,women, children might be comforted after a long day full of chores with familiar scents that could have a relaxing effect. Here is a link to a seller that has some great scents including Aromatherapy scents that would be great for a soothing effect. Of course, this is in the scenario where there is not an extremely huge danger of someone finding you, if the situation  is one where you are in hiding from nearby dangers it might not be a good time to pull these kinds of scents out from your stockpile shelves. If you are afraid to be found then wait and deal with the bad smell until their is less dangers in the area. Clean smells can cause the unwanted attention you may not want in the early days of SHTF !

Off Grid Quote - Interesting perspectives on Off the Grid Living - Daniel Woodrell

  Daniel Woodrell said, "I know people who have, until recently, lived with dirt floors. There are people who live way back off the grid, without electricity. Not a whole lot, but quite a few. That's a choice for a lot of them. There might be a religious element in their isolation, at least with some of them."

Off Grid Quote - Interesting perspectives on Off the Grid Living - Henry David Thoreau

 Henry David Thoreau said in his book Walden, ..“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion.”

Potentially Hazardous Asteroid


                                  NASA and FEMA and many other international agencies and organizations are planning a hypothetical impact preparedness scenario this week. In this fictional senario they say there is a 1% chance that one of the Asteroids that they have been tracking could impact around 2027. On March 26, 2019 astronomers found something that appeared dimmer than Pluto in the night sky. They have named it 2019 PDC. Again 2019 PDC is fictional Astetoid fabricated for the joint international agencies to practice. Even though there are fake Asteroids for the operations they were inspired by real possible threats. 99942 Apophis is among the most infamous near-Earth objects. When astronomers at Kitt Peak National Observatory discovered it in 2004, they initially calculated a 2.7 percent chance that it would hit Earth and assigned it a level 4 on the Torino Scale, the highest assignment for a near-Earth object ever. Here is two links to an article about it published by Gizmodo.
