Awareness for Survival

Awareness for Survival

Emergency Preparedness
While an unpleasant topic, never forget... "Chance favors the prepared." When it comes to dangerous situations where mass murders are more likely to occur, most people are completely unprepared. You’ll even hear news accounts where witnesses will remark that they never suspected or never saw the situation coming. But by having awareness, you can raise your odds of surviving such a disaster. Pay attention to your surroundings - but also pay attention to special days and anniversaries of events. Terrorists and mass shooters will often attack on the anniversary of something significant that happened, such as the 9/11 terrorist attack. Sometimes it’s a celebratory attack honoring a previous attack - and sometimes it’s revenge for something that happened to their side. School Shootings School shootings are on the list of…

How To Make and Use Dandelion Flower Infused Oil

How To Make and Use Dandelion Flower Infused Oil

Using Herbs
Dandelion flower infused oil is a "spring thing". Just be sure to leave some flowers for the bees! Dandelion flowers just grow anywhere and everywhere! For some inexplicable reason, people want them eradicated from their yard, I have never understood why. The broad sweeping green of lawn is simply uninteresting and bland without the presence of the dandelion's bright pop of yellow in the spring. The first food of the year for bees, dandelions emerge before the beginning of spring and bloom intensely all summer and into autumn making them, also, the last of the seasonal food for your local bees. That is enough to allow the hardy dandelion its place even if you do nothing but appreciate its tenacity and benevolence. When harvesting dandelion flowers in early spring, I…

Broadley Penitentiary

Homestead Stories
And, The past two day here at Broadley Penitentiary have been interesting to say the least and with the onset of yet another snow event, I am feeling the extra work with having the Frolicking Frisky Fat girls amongst the prisoners. The Little Nasties have gone on strike and not laid their little duckie eggs for two days, the Little Chicken Mafia have been practicing their own brand of payback and Peckerhead…well he’s just being a peckerhead. Everyone in the cells are protesting the crowded conditions… The Frolicking Frisky Fat girls are loving and fun and ohhhh so curious…nosing the other prisoners creating a flurry of quacks and squawks…outrage from the fluffy feathered fowl…they charge the door each time I enter, all sixty to seventy pounds of them trying to…

I Am Snow Fatigued

I Am Snow Fatigued

Homestead Stories
Another guest post from our ever humerous, Nancy Broadley. I have had only scant hints of snow all winter here in NE Oklahoma, but up North, it's a whole different story... And... I am snow fatigued. Yes, there is a condition in the North East that is snow fatigue and after three Nor’ Easters in the span of two weeks I’ve had enough. So on this morning hubby is out, bundled up in a snow suit, pushing the blasted white stuff out of the driveway…I am still in my pajama's and wrapped in my blue and white Eyore bathrobe. I can hear the prisoners squawking for breakfast and I dread the thought of slumping my way through two feet of snow, carrying a water pail, to feed and water the…
