THE Best Outdoor Motion Light For Your Home Security

October 25, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

best-outdoor-motion-light-rab-super-stealth

I have no doubt whatsoever that the RAB ‘Super Stealth’ outdoor motion light is absolutely the best there is for home security.

Why do I say that? Because I have lots of them, and have been completely satisfied for years.

I recently purchased and installed two more of these outdoor motion lights to beef up my home security, and although I already have RAB motion lights from several years ago, I was pleasantly surprised to discover even more improvements to their already stellar product.

They’re still the best. And here’s why.

Monster Sunspot – Solar Flare: Oops, There Goes The 21st Century

October 24, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

sunspot-ar-2192

>UPDATE (10/24, 21:30 GMT) A Strong X3+ Solar Flare Is Currently In Progress and it will be geoeffective because the sunspot is directly facing Earth.

>UPDATE (10/25, 11:30 GMT) A pulse of extreme UV radiation from the flare ionized the upper layers of Earth’s atmosphere, causing a brief but strong blackout of HF radio communications over the sun-facing side of Earth. Data suggests that the explosion did not hurl a significant CME toward our planet (dodged another bullet).

Ebola NYC

October 24, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

ebola-nyc

As you’ve probably already heard, Ebola is now in NYC. New York City, the most populous city in the United States and the center of the New York metropolitan area populated with 20 million people – there couldn’t be a worse place for Ebola to pop up. Although we knew it would sooner or later…

A doctor admitted to Bellevue Hospital Center on Thursday has tested positive for the Ebola virus, and had traveled on the A and L subway lines Wednesday night, visited a bowling alley in Williamsburg, and then took a taxi back to Manhattan.

But the Mayor, Bill de Blasio, said there’s no reason to worry. “There’s no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed.”

Ummm… really? Wait till you read this…

The Best Way To Store Yeast

October 22, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

best-way-to-store-yeast

Having purchased some more bulk instant dry yeast, I researched (again) the best way to store yeast for maximum shelf life.

Since we make all of our bread from scratch (from our own milled wheat), we go through yeast fairly quickly and therefore we like to buy and store larger quantities and store it (also good for general preparedness).

Knowing that yeast is ‘alive’, I wasn’t sure how necessary it is store and keep it ‘refrigerator’ cool, and I also wasn’t sure if storing yeast in the freezer would be best (or a problem by possibly damaging the yeast cells after they freeze).

Here’s my conclusion:

How To Cook Rice With 80 Percent Less Fuel!

October 22, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

how-to-cook-rice-with-less-fuel

Most preppers have a quantity of dry food storage including rice. A problem with rice though, is that it requires a substantial amount of fuel (heat) energy to cook (boil-simmer) to soften the grains such that you can actually eat it.

In a SHTF world, not only will our food storage be a very valuable resource, but so will our energy sources.

The good news is that I’ve found a way to cook rice with just a fraction of the fuel energy needed compared to conventional cooking methods of boiling and simmering…

What Are Your Favorite Alternative News & Information Sources – Websites?

October 21, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

list-of-alternative-news-websites

Many of you are skeptical of the mainstream news (e.g. alphabet channels) and their choice of what they deem important or relevant to ‘feed’ us each day – along with their subtle ‘slant’ on how we should ‘think’ about it.

Instead, many of you augment and diversify your sources of news and information with ‘alternative news’ sources – with the logical thought that you will then better discern what may be important or relevant to YOU.

So – knowing that most of you probably have a healthy set of bookmarks of your ‘go-to’ alternative news websites, I, and I’m sure others, are curious to know where you browse to get your ‘news’ and information diversification…

Four Survival Guns

October 20, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

four-survival-guns

Owning a gun, or a variety of guns, is not only your Constitutional right, but is a core element to ultimate personal protection and it compliments the lifestyle of ‘survival living’ as a practical tool.

Although there are some who are wary of guns, and there are parts of the world where gun ownership is outright banned, owning a gun is really just like owning a tool to compliment all the other tools that you have in your ‘kit’.

I like to re-post this (original) article every year for your additional comments – because it’s always a popular and often widely debated subject with many opinions…
