Natural Pain Relief – Ginger

Natural pain relief will be a series of posts. Each post will cover one natural pain reliever. Not everyone will be able to use every natural pain reliever due to allergic or other adverse reactions.

Ginger Honey Syrup

I know I haven’t been around for a while. I have had some medical problems and we are just getting to the end of our busy season at work. So, things have been a little crazy, not leaving much time to blog. Well, actually, all of my posts are “new” again. I changed my hosting plan and, unfortunately, my blog wouldn’t migrate the way it was supposed to. Oh, well, at least I have them up, again. I’m just glad…

Food Storage Basics

Food Storage Basics

If you are new to food storage, one of the first questions you probably have is, “where do I start?” I recommend starting with a good food storage calculator.

Here’s what the first section…

Today I am going to continue our adventure in healthy eating. I mentioned getting organic produce at farmer’s markets and roadside stands were good places to start. To find a farmer’s market near you, try entering your location at Local Harvest. They have a pretty extensive listing for every state. The other way to make sure you are getting the best organic produce is to grow it yourself. Check out my Pinterest link for a number of good articles on…

Do You Know You Should Be Better Prepared, But Don’t Know Where To Start?

Do You Know You Should Be Better Prepared, But Don’t Know Where To Start?

Most available information about prepping advise starting with food and water storage. While that is, obviously, important, I’m going to advise, as more mature adults, you start with your health. Without your health, you will have a much more difficult time surviving a long term disaster, no matter what you have stocked in your supplies. As we’ve aged, most of us have been gradually plagued with more of both physical and internal medical problems. We’ve been conditioned to believe these…

What Are We Preparing For?

What Are We Preparing For?

Zombie apocalypse? Space invaders? Okay, not very likely. I’m not a tin hatter, paranoid, or anything like that. I’m a 61 year old realist who sees what goes on around me and what can happen, so I want to be prepared to take care of myself, just in case the need arises. If I wait for something to happen, it’s going to be too late. I also know, from experience, there probably won’t be anyone coming in to help. In…
