Article of the Week
By Teri Simpson of Optimum Preparedness

Our teacher has said, time and again, Water! Water! Water! Store water. Water will become more precious than gold. Move out of the cities and buy a bit of land, and have your own well so that YOU can be in control of your water supply.

Why do we suppose he keeps going on about WATER? I mean, here in the U.S., EVERYBODY has water ALL the time, so it is easy to forget about putting up water. Or you may have done a teeny tiny bit in respect to being able to supply your family with water 24/7/365 (that is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year), and you keep MEANING to get around to the other stuff you haven't done yet.

But here's the thing: If the "event" (earthquake, earth tilting on its axis, tsunami, pick one) doesn't kill you, what is the FIRST thing you're going to die from? It is lack of water that you can drink. You can go days without food. You can go even longer if all you are lacking is a cozy home. (Do you know how to build a little emergency shelter in the woods with leaves and branches and sticks? Might not be the poshest place, but it could definitely save your you-know-what.)

But you have to have water. And it is nice to have more than just enough to keep you from kicking the proverbial bucket.

So let's look at how to have water 24/7 x 365 days a year. For a couple of years. And let's include not just people who live out in the country with their own well, but let's also include those people who live in the suburbs and have a backyard, as well as people who live in cities, condos and apartments. Note: Just because you live in a city, condo or apartment, I say you do NOT have to resign yourself to kicking the bucket. It might be good, though, for you to have a couple of contingency plans :o)

You will want ONE gallon per person per day for just "drinking and cooking". Then, if you ever want to wash your face, hands or what-not you will need a minimum of another ONE gallon of water per person per day. And maybe add an extra gallon or two so you can wash your hair once a week?

Earth Watch

Coronal Hole
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is monitoring a dark gash in the sun's atmosphere--a coronal hole. It's the dark vertical feature in this extreme UV image taken on Jan. 13th:

Coronal holes are places where the sun's magnetic field opens up and allows the solar wind to escape. This yawning hole is about 120,000 km wide and more than a million km long. Solar wind flowing from its UV-dark abyss will reach Earth on Jan. 16th or 17th, possibly sparking auroras for high-latitude sky watchers.

Ants turned into 'supersoldiers'

Ants can be programmed to become "supersoldiers", according to an international team of researchers.
All ant colonies are made up of insects of different "castes", including soldiers and workers. This team worked out how to "trick" developing ant larvae to turn into a rare and unusual supersoldier caste.
The breakthrough, the researchers say, reveals that hidden traits could be unlocked in many species.

Something Worth Knowing

The Banking Backstory Behind Friday The 13th

The unlucky Friday the 13th is one of the most well-recognized superstitions in the Western world.  This tradition is over 700 years old and has a very interesting origin.

During the 12th century there was a massive religious war that consumed most of Europe and Asia.  Europeans referred to these times as “the crusades”.  This war lasted centuries and allowed an elite class of knights to accumulate so much power and wealth that their influence rivaled both the monarchy and the church.  The knights of the temple of Solomon, or more commonly known as “The Knights Templar” were the most influential political force of their time.  They were the world’s first international bankers and were the corporate giant of the middle ages.

Awesome Job!
Hi All,

I absolutely love it, it's the only newsletter I read front to back as soon as it arrives in my inbox. I especially like the editor's corner, the practical advice, and the gardening tips, but I also love the things you cover that are brushed over in the main stream media (like the detention bill, and the use of wood pulp in food)...I guess I just like it all! Well done! - MC2020 reader

“I am 1,000 percent behind this school.” - Ramtha

Becoming the Fairy Godmother

If you want to be a prince or princess, or just act like one, the PRS Pre-K class is the place for you. Last week, the class did just that, with a little help from fairy godmothers Jeannette Abbott and Sonya El Debssi, who taught them how to make their dreams come true.

Princesses are a hot topic in the Pre-K, with no less than eight little girls excited about playing dress up on any given day. So it’s probably not surprising that when the class had to agree on a favorite story to act out, they chose Cinderella.

“It was a bit of a challenge because everyone wanted to play Cinderella, except for one who wanted to be Cinderella . . . and the prince . . . and the wicked stepmother,” says Nancy. “We had to split the main character role among eight girls.”

Later, Sonya visited the class and talked to them about the story. Everyone clearly loved the character of the fairy godmother, so she asked them how that character is able to perform the magic she does.

“She has a wand!” they told her.

“What magic words does she use?” asked Sonya.

“Bippity boppity boo!”
