Editors Corner


The sky is falling. . . As I write to you tonight I am hoping wherever you are in the world you have avoided the satellite falling from the sky. The latest word is that the “experts” really have no idea where it will crash land on earth. Waking up with a satellite in your living room would be the opposite of winning the lottery. What are the odds? I pray your consciousness keeps you safe tonight.

Our feature article this week is important practical information about how to get along without running water and other luxuries. Teri Simpson is uniquely qualified to share her knowledge on this subject. We are so glad to have you on our team, Teri. Click Here

This week we say a fond farewell to Kleiner’s . For ten long years Steve has provided us with a quality, consistent, informative newsletter. Long before I started working with Masters Connection, I faithfully read Steve’s newsletter. Now more than ever I appreciate the time and effort it took for him to give us that gift. Thank you, Steve. I wonder what he will do with all his free time? Knowing Steve he will be up to something creative.

In this week’s newsletter we have the privilege of announcing “Project Ark” for those needing assistance with creating shelters. This is a project whose time has truly come. Read about it here

Speaking of shelters. . . we have had requests from people all over the world who would are looking for plans for shelters. If you are willing to share your plans, let us know. Email us at and we will find a way to make them available to those who need them.

Oh, my goodness, anyone else heard about the aggressive wasps and hornets? Eight of my friends have been stung this week alone. Our remedy of the week is a simple way to relieve the pain and swelling.
We have too much to do to let those little buggers slow us down. Fall has officially arrived and it is time to harvest those last tomatoes, green beans and beets turning them into food stores that will nurture us in our future days.

Showering & Toileting When Your Faucets Don't Work
By Teri Simpson of Optimum Preparedness

I got a phone call from a customer a couple of days ago. She wanted to buy a Luggable Loo Seat/Cover that you can use to make any 5 gallon bucket into a porta-potty. Her problem was that she lives in a townhouse so she has a postage stamp of a back yard and neighbors who can easily see into her back yard, and the rules say she can't do any major digging or changing of the landscaping, so while a person who lives on 5 acres in the boontoolies (or just out Vail or Bald Hills Rd) could, if they wanted, put in an outhouse, she can't do that.

She has several 55 gallon barrels of water, but with a family of 5, they will need that water for drinking, cooking and washing up dishes if the power is out for very long (oh yes, and the occasional washing up of the people).

So she can purchase the Luggable Loo Seat/Cover, but then what?? Well, I gave her all sorts of good ideas for safely dealing with the issues of what to do with the "stuff in the bucket" (and she doesn't have the luxury and privacy of someone on their own land) and on showering, which gave me the idea that others might benefit from some of my experience in living "without amenities".

I have been fortunate enough to have lived in Mexico for a couple of years,

where I lived in the Sonora desert in a tent for a while, hauled in any water we needed, cooked on a sheet of steel set on top of cement blocks and there were certainly no restroom facilities there other than the saguaro cactus. A family of 3 really CAN live on 5 gallons of water a day – after doing that for a while it gave me a whole new perspective on water use.

FukushimaCat. 4-equivalent Typhoon Roke slams Japan, Fukushima live video feed taken offline

(NaturalNews) The Japanese people simply cannot catch a break, as yet another massive natural disaster has severely ravaged many portions of western and central Japan, and dumped heavy amounts of rain on areas in the northeast, including near the crippled Fukushima nuclear facility.

The equivalent of a category 4 hurricane in terms of its power and wind speeds, Typhoon Roke made landfall in southern Japan on Wed., Sept. 21, where it traveled up through central Japan, including Tokyo, before weakening slightly and grazing the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

A meeting at Cern, the world's largest physics lab, has addressed results that suggest subatomic particles have gone faster than the speed of light.

The team presented its work so other scientists can determine if the approach contains any mistakes.

If it does not, one of the pillars of modern science will come tumbling down.

Storing the Harvest for Winter
By Suzanne Wood of Winter Gardening Guide

How to Store Onions,Potatoes,Apples,and Carrots  for Winter

Storing Onions

The first step in curing onions for harvest is to leave the leaves intact and let them dry in an airy place out of the sun for a few weeks. When the outer skins are completely dry,then you can leave the dried leaves on the onion and braid them together and hang in a cool dry location for the winter. Onions need to be stored in a cool location to keep them from sprouting. If they freeze however,they will turn to mush.

Another option is to cut the leaves back to 4 inches from the onion and then hang in a mesh basket in a cool dry and airy location.The ideal temperature for storing onions is between 40 and 50 degrees. A dark root cellar or cool pantry is ideal.

It is fine to eat onions that have sprouted a little. Send onions to the compost if they have gotten soft or mushy.

On The Lighter Side

Living Root Bridges
In the depths of northeastern India, in one of the wettest places on earth, bridges aren't built - they're grown.

The living bridges of Cherrapunji, India are made from the roots of the Ficus elastica tree. This tree produces a series of secondary roots from higher up its trunk and can comfortably perch atop huge boulders along the riverbanks, or even in the middle of the rivers themselves.

Cherrapunji is credited with being the wettest place on earth, and The War-Khasis, a tribe in Meghalaya, long ago noticed this tree and saw in its powerful roots an opportunity to easily cross the area's many rivers. Now, whenever and wherever the need arises, they simply grow their bridges.

Visible Only From Above, Mystifying 'Nazca Lines' Discovered in Mideast

They stretch from Syria to Saudi Arabia, can be seen from the air but not the ground, and are virtually unknown to the public.

They are the Middle East's own version of the Nazca Lines — ancient "geolyphs," or drawings, that span deserts in southern Peru — and now, thanks to new satellite-mapping technologies, and an aerial photography program in Jordan, researchers are discovering more of them than ever before. They number well into the thousands.

Common Concerns

Perhaps some of you out there can identify with the dilemma these parents and family members are experiencing right now. Somehow it helps to know you are not alone in your efforts to include family members that don't share your concerns.

We would like to share some of the letters back and forth between some of us, about our ( mostly adult) children and their reactions since the Opus.

However, maybe just bringing the 'issues' into the open....
Some of the children had been in the school and exposed to the disciplines and Teachings; others , not.  Many knew of their parent(s) preparedness efforts and research and investigations into the "Social Consciousness MSM and world events".  For years. 
Since it is happening,  more now in our current awareness than ever before- our emotions are each being tested and our true levels of mastery  being revealed, honed, and upgraded?  ( We are each and all needing to SEE ourselves and the work we are doing to resolve all of the issues we thought we were conquering all along.)  Truth comes out- eh? Tell me, what took us so long??
Thank You for your very Useful work and dedication to our joint upliftment, You Are Appreciated!

Before its News

Not all thieves are stupid.
This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.

A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.
When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it... Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.

I never thought of this.......

This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet... Etc...was stolen. 20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says 'I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.' When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

Moral of the lesson:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.

Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc....

And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.

Also, when you're being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you..

* I never thought about the above!
As of now, I no longer have 'home' listed on my cell phone.

Something Worth Knowing

The Secret Lives of Solar Flares

One hundred and fifty two years ago, a man in England named Richard Carrington discovered solar flares.

It happened at 11:18 AM on the cloudless morning of Thursday, September 1st, 1859. Just as usual on every sunny day, the 33-year-old solar astronomer was busy in his private observatory, projecting an image of the sun onto a screen and sketching what he saw. On that particular morning, he traced the outlines of an enormous group of sunspots. Suddenly, before his eyes, two brilliant beads of white light appeared over the sunspots; they were so bright he could barely stand to look at the screen.

Carrington cried out, but by the time a witness arrived minutes later, the first solar flare anyone had ever seen was fading away.

GRAIL and the Mystery of the Missing Moon

As early as Sept. 8th, NASA's GRAIL mission will blast off to uncover some of the mysteries beneath the surface of the Moon. That cratered gray exterior hides some tantalizing things – even, perhaps, a long-lost companion.

If a paper published recently in the journal Nature* is right, two moons once graced our night skies. The proposition has not been proven, but has drawn widespread attention.

"It's an intriguing idea," says David Smith, GRAIL's deputy principal investigator at MIT. "And it would be a way to explain one of the great perplexities of the Earth-Moon system – the Moon's strangely asymmetrical nature. Its near and far sides are substantially different."

The Moon's near side, facing us, is dominated by vast smooth 'seas' of ancient hardened lava. In contrast, the far side is marked by mountainous highlands. Researchers have long struggled to account for the differences, and the "two moon" theory introduced by Martin Jutzi and Erik Asphaug of the University of California at Santa Cruz is the latest attempt.
