So I was downstairs in the basement this morning getting a fire going and I was having a hard time of it. Reason being is that this particular fireplace has a 90-degree bend in the flue which makes getting it going a bit challenging and takes some patience.
I wasn’t feeling very patient today and so I just “went for it” using kindling that was a bit too large and more than I should have started with, knowing full-well that I would probably smoke out the basement as a result. And, of course, I did have to open the doors to air the basement out while I was getting the fire going.
The thing is that I wondered why the smoke alarm nearest the fireplace didn’t go off because I was sure that it would have. And I knew for a fact that the batteries were good because I just recently replaced them a month or two ago.
Clearly, I wondered what was wrong, so I took the smoke alarm down and pressed the test button… nothing. I then opened the battery cover, removed the 9-volt, and my problem was obvious: I’d put the battery in backwards… literally 180-degrees the wrong way!
No doubt THAT smoke alarm was going to do me no good should I have ever needed it. Fortunately, I probably go overboard with my smoke alarms throughout the house, so I was likely covered by another–relatively nearby–smoke alarm but, regardless, I made an easily preventable mistake that I don’t believe I’d ever made before. And it was a mistake that could have cost lives.
Now I get to go check the rest of the smoke alarm batteries just to be sure they’re all installed correctly and, of course, I should be pressing the “test” button to ensure each of them works as expected… especially after I replace the batteries.
Last night I was making two pizzas in the oven like I’d done many times before. When they were done I pulled the oven rack toward me as far as it would go so I could slide the pizzas out easier; I got the first one out no problem, but when I returned to get the second pizza, it was missing. I thought to myself, “Where in the world did the second pizza go!?” Turns out, the second pizza was now sitting atop the oven burner catching on fire and making one heck of a smoke signal!
My guess is the second pizza got stuck to the back of the oven wall and stayed attached as I pulled the oven rack out without me realizing it. Eventually, I fished out the second pizza and still need to clean it out, but that got me to thinking that we ought to remind ourselves what to do should the oven or a pot on the burner ever catch fire…
Turn off the oven and allow the fire to burn out on its own.
If it does not go out on its own, leave the house and call 911.
If it does go out, then open your windows.
Carefully open the oven door (it will be smoky!) and remove the hot pan.
Allow the smoke to clear before determining the cause of the fire and possibly resuming cooking.”
Here’s what to do if a burner ever catches fire:
Never Use The Oven to Heat Your Home
This article explains why you should never use an oven to heat your home: “Do not use a gas or electric oven or surface units for heating. A gas oven may go out or burn inefficiently, leading to carbon monoxide poisoning. An electric oven was not designed for space heating.”
The article also explains important safety considerations regarding keeping warm during the winter in an unheated house… all of which are good reminders for everyone to read.
I was sent this Lock Pick Beginners Box from LockPickWorld.com in exchange for an honest review and, honestly, I really had no idea what they were going to send because I basically said “send whatever you like” as I had no experience with picking locks and, thus, no expectations either.
Anyway, the box arrived a few days later and was smaller than I’d anticipated at about 7″ x 5″ and not a whole lot bigger than most cell phones these days, lol:
After opening the box, everything was well-contained and included the lock pick set, a smaller concealed credit-card-sized pick set, and two different see-through training locks:
Here’s what I found after taking it all out of their respective packages, with the 15-piece lock pick set lined up along the top in the photo below, the credit-card pick set at the bottom left, and the two practice locks shown on the bottom and bottom right:
Scratching my head at everything, the first thing I looked for was a set of instructions, yet I found none. Truth be told, I typically ignore instructions, at least, until I get suck, but this time I really had no idea what I was doing.
After heading back to the product page I realized that I should have received an ebook to go along with the pick set, but since this was a review product I guess I didn’t get the appropriate email. No big deal, I got my hands on the book and actually found it rather interesting… and I even read most of it too.
The problem I found was that reading how to pick a lock was far different than actually seeing it done. And, so, I headed to YouTube and found this video which helped me get started:
I watched a few others which I won’t bore you with, but I can attest that picking locks is much harder than I thought it would be!
I tried for a while to use the lock picks like I thought I should on the practice padlock without any success. Then I tried the “raking” method discussed in both the book and shown in the video above using a “triple peak” pick and I quickly picked the training padlock! Uh oh… I might be hooked.
It was neat to get something to actually work, so I tried the double-sided lock using the “raking” method but was stumped again.
Long story short, I went back to using the tension wrench and “short pick” on the double-sided lock and, after fiddling with it and watching the tumblers move I actually got the lock to open, but that took some time and more patience than I tend to have.
Regardless, it was neat to accomplish. I actually went around the house and tried a few door locks using only a tension wrench and short pick, but had no success.
And, if I’m being honest, the rest of the lock pick set looks like Greek to me. I also tried to use the credit-card set on the training locks and eventually got them to work as well.
I briefly considered adding the credit-card set to my wallet, but it’s already filled to the brim with other stuff and, knowing my luck, I would probably get arrested the next time I tried to board a plane with them, lol.
Ultimately, I was pleased with the lock pick beginners box set. It’s an interesting skill that I never tried before and, whether or not it may come in handy during any sort of disaster scenario, the tools are certainly fun to practice with and may just make an entertaining gift for the upcoming holiday season.
There’s simply no question that a firearm is one of the very best home defense weapons you can have.
There’s also no question that leaving your firearms out in plain sight is a bad idea, and for more reasons than one. The last thing you want is someone with unauthorized access to get their hands on one of your guns, and that’s why you need to take action to keep your firearms hidden.
Now the obvious solution here is to invest in astrong, affordable gun safe, which has the added benefit of protecting your firearms from fires and other elements.
But this may not be a viable solution for you if you don’t presently have the funds to invest in a safe, or at least not in one that can hold all of your guns for you. (Editor’s note: be sure to follow any local laws regarding proper storage, even if you’re generally against more regulations, like me.)
So what are you supposed to do now? Simple: you need to find other places throughout your house to hide your guns in instead.
Yes, any random food box such as a pizza box will be a perfectly viable option to hide a handgun, because it would be one of the very last places a criminal would even think to look.
The added benefit here is that the kitchen is a good place to have a firearm hidden anyway for defense against home intrusions.
(Editor’s note: be sure the box is thoroughly cleaned, otherwise it will get smelly!)
2. Pottery Pieces
Besides food boxes, you can alsotry to hide your handguns inside pottery pieces throughout your house as well. Take note that criminals will definitely think to look inside pottery pieces before food boxes, so it may not be as secure of an option. You’ll also definitely want to wrap the pistol in a towel of some kind before placing it into the bowl, just in case if a guest to your home peers inside out of curiosity.
It’s always a good idea to keep a firearm on the nightstand for quick access should you wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of something breaking downstairs. That being said, nightstands are also places that burglars would be sure to check for jewelry, electronics, money, and other valuables, so you’re definitely taking a risk here.
The best solution here may be to invest in a small pistol safe that you can drill into the bottom of the nightstand, where the pistol will be kept both concealed and secured.
4. Under Furniture
Who says that you only have to drill a pistol safe underneath a nightstand? What’s to stop you from drilling one underneath other pieces of furniture, such as office desks, chairs, sofas, and so on?
5. Under The Floors
Underneath the floors isanother great location for hiding firearms. You can also hide long guns here such as rifles and shotguns besides handguns only. Just be careful about where you choose to cut into your floors. In a hallway that’s commonly used wouldn’t be as strategic as say underneath furniture.
6. Concealment Shelves
There are a variety of concealment shelves on the market that you can buy as well for hiding handguns. Many concealment shelves are designed as everyday home furnishing items, such as drawers, clocks, picture frames, and so on.
7. Air Vents
Air vents are anotherlocation where you can hide firearms. Granted, burglars may think to look there for money or other valuables, but children and anyone else curious probably will not.
8. Fake Books
This is one of the oldest tricks in the book (pun intended), but hiding a small pistol in a realistic looking fake book ensures that the firearm is kept both hidden and accessible. For larger pistols, you made need a real page turner. Try a dictionary, old Bible, or maybe your favorite edition of Harry Potter.
You’re taking a major risk by hiding your guns in the closet, because it’s often the very first room where burglars will go. But it’s still an option for you. Just be careful and strategic about how you choose to hide your guns in the closet (i.e. underneath a pile of shirts or pants isn’t very strategic).
Editor’s note: get a good handgun safe if you’re going to use the closet for this purpose… thieves will go straight for the closet every time.
Last but not least, you can alsoalways hide firearms underground, such as in a PVC pipe, pelican case, ammo can, or anything else that can keep the firearms shielded from moisture. This is a topic that you’ll want to research much more careful to keep your firearms fully protected from moisture damage.
Hopefully this article has given you a solid idea of a variety of different places where you cankeep your firearms hidden. But of course, these aren’t the only viable options for hiding guns, so if you put your creative cap on, you’ll no doubt think of a number of other hiding places as well.
I’d never heard of such a thing as the BioScarf until today. Interestingly, it’s like a typical scarf but with an N-95 mask built into it. Apparently, it can filter out all sorts of airborne pathogens, from bacteria to smoke and plenty more. Plus they come in a variety of colors, including camo, olive drab, black, and white. Check it out below and consider grabbing one as an early Christmas gift…
I have a bunch of old papers that I need to get rid of and it occurred to me that I could just burn them in my fireplace one day, but I got to wondering if that was really a good idea as I’d never done so before (I’d always done this outdoors).
Well, it turns out that “it depends” on precisely what I’m burning, but I did find this article on several items I should never burn in the fireplace and wanted to share it with you, too, so you’re aware as well…
“The fireplace looks like a handy place to dispose of unwanted combustibles, but it’s safest to burn only dry, seasoned firewood. Many items you might innocently pop into the fireplace create serious hazards.
Don’t burn colored paper. The inks used in wrapping paper, newspaper inserts, and magazines contain metals that can give off toxic fumes when burned. Paper burns very quickly, so there is also a danger that flames may enter the chimney and ignite the creosote deposits in the flue. Balls of paper can ‘float’ up the chimney on the hot air that is rising through the chimney and ignite flammable materials outside the home.
Never burn painted, stained, or treated wood or manufactured wood such as plywood and particle board. Chemicals in ‘salt treated’ wood, paint, or stains can produce toxic fumes when burned. Likewise, burning manufactured wood products produces toxins and carcinogens…”
Yesterday I shared a brief video about Washington’s I-1639 passing that seriously restricts gun ownership, and I clearly wasn’t happy about it. I’m still not happy about it passing and, like the guy said in the video, most of the law won’t directly impact me whatsoever. Regardless, it’s still the wrong way to go but first…
Today I woke up at about 3 am still thinking about it… and still upset. Then, this morning I turn on the news to hear about another shooting, this time in a California bar.
What a shame. I simply don’t understand what these shooters hope to gain by doing this; it must be the infamy of going out in a blaze of glory. Odds are this guy had mental problems that weren’t properly dealt with, but only time will tell.
The thing is that we always seem to blame the gun for such deaths, but that’s just not the case. Now, I’m hesitant to use the saying, “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” but it’s true.
Saying that guns kill people because they exist would be like saying that cars kill people because they exist. Literally. But we both know that’s not true. Cars don’t actually kill people… it’s the driver’s behind the wheel who do. There may be extenuating circumstances (such as poor road conditions) but it’s still up to the driver to drive safely.
The statistics are staggering
According to these CDC stats, America averages between 30-40 thousand deaths by firearm (homicides and suicides combined) each year, give or take a few thousand, and it appears to be rising. I’ll certainly agree that’s a lot and the trend is moving in the wrong direction.
And if firearms didn’t actually exist then, yes, these deaths in this manner would not have occurred. Would they have occurred in another way, say, with suicides? Well, Japan has very strict gun laws and a relatively high suicide rate… you do the math.
What about deaths on the road? Although motor vehicle fatalities were trending lower over the past decade, the trend seems to be on the rise again, totaling as many or more deaths per year as firearms at about 37,000 per year, according to Wikipedia.
Clearly, firearm deaths and motor vehicle deaths are not equal. People certainly use a vehicle in their daily lives far more than a firearm. I get that. But the fact still remains that as many or more people die from vehicle-related deaths as they do with guns.
And if we’re truly interested in reducing preventable fatalities then we should consider all major causes of preventable death, including firearms, vehicles, drug overdoes (many of which are prescriptions and cause more deaths than either firearms or vehicles), and so on… but only firearms get vilified day in and day out.
Initiative 1639 highlights
So, what would it be like if we treated your car just like Washington state want’s to treat guns?
Let’s find out…
Washington Initiative 1639 includes quite a bit. Once enacted, the law would:
Raise age limits for purchasing certain firearms
Require waiting periods after purchasing a firearm
Impose additional fees when purchasing a firearm
Require proof of firearms safety training
Increase background checks before purchasing a firearm
Require firearms to be securely stored or disabled by use of trigger-locks
Require approval from local police or sheriff to own a firearm
I’m sure there’s more in there that I missed, but these are the biggest problems I see. Now, on the surface, they sound reasonable enough. But, let’s substitute the word “firearm” for the word “vehicle” and see how reasonable it would be if this were your car and your lifestyle that we’re legislating…
Raise age limits for purchasing certain vehicles
One thing the initiative does is to raise the age limit on purchasing certain firearms from age 18 to 21: “This initiative would make it illegal for a person under 21 years of age to buy a pistol or semiautomatic assault rifle. It would make it illegal for any person to sell or transfer a semiautomatic assault rifle to a person under age 21.”
What if we applied this same logic to a car? What if we said that a legal adult at age 18 couldn’t buy a sports car, such as Ford Mustang, until they were age 21 because of the perceived risk a sports car brings? Would that be acceptable?
Or, better yet, why not say they can’t buy a sports car until age 25 when insurance rates tend to drop even more? After all, young male drivers are known to be most at risk for making poor decisions behind the wheel, especially when speed is involved. A sports car surely makes it easier to speed, I can attest to that.
Why not apply the same logic to motorcycle purchases? After all, most motorcyclists I’ve seen on the road tend to speed or weave in and out of traffic, and they’re certainly more at risk of dying from an accident than the driver of a vehicle.
Let’s target SUV’s while we’re at it… most of “those people” drive poorly too, particularly in bad weather.
And if I kept trying I’m sure I could figure out how to target almost every car or group of drivers out there. Eventually nobody will be driving!
What about upper age limits?
Here’s another take that’s just going to upset quite a few people: what if we had an upper age limit on who can purchase–or even drive–certain vehicles?
What if, for instance, we said anyone who was retirement age couldn’t purchase specific vehicles or, worse, once you hit age 70 (an arbitrary number I just made up) that you couldn’t drive anymore?
Would you be fine with that? After all, older drivers may be just as much of a hazard on the road as the younger ones. Don’t get mad at me, though, we’re just trying to do everything we can to stay safe on the road!
Require waiting periods after purchasing a vehicle
Another requirement of I-1639 is to “…require a dealer to wait at least 10 days before delivering a semiautomatic assault rifle to a buyer.” Of course, this could take much longer due to background check backlogs, lost paperwork, or who knows why.
What if we did the same thing with vehicles?
What if, instead of being able to drive off the new car lot with your shiny new sports car (now at age 25) you had to wait? Possibly for weeks? You wouldn’t be very happy at all!
Now, what if we made everyone wait before they could take possession of any new car they buy, even from a private seller?
Dealerships wouldn’t be very pleased, that’s for sure. It kind of ruins their whole sales pitch and there may be a few “buyer’s remorse” returns too. That may hurt the economy a bit.
Insurance companies may not be very happy either, especially if there’s damage to a vehicle during the interim period where the dealer still holds a car due to the waiting period and when the owner takes possession. Though I’m sure they’re figure out a way around that or, more likely, they’ll charge you a “new vehicle holding” fee.
And, of course, new car owners won’t be very happy either.
Impose additional fees when purchasing a vehicle
The initiative would also “…allow the state to impose a fee of up to $25 on each purchaser of a semiautomatic assault rifle. This fee would be used to offset certain costs of implementing the initiative. The fee would be adjusted for inflation.”
Wait, we already impose new car fees, lol.
That’s just more money for the state to grab and do whatever they want with. Granted, the fees probably wouldn’t amount to very much, but it’s still YOUR money that they’re taking.
Require proof of vehicle safety training
The initiative states that: “Buyers would be required to provide proof that they have completed a recognized firearm safety training program within the past five years.”
What if we made anyone who wants to purchase a new car show proof that they completed a vehicle safety course within the past five years? Would you want to take a safety course every five years? How quickly would this become redundant? After a handful of these safety courses you could probably teach the course yourself.
Firearms are no different; once you understand the basics of firearms safety and familiarize yourself with the firearm (assuming it’s new to you) there really isn’t much else you need to reeducate yourself about. Requiring proof of training every five years is just silly.
Increase background checks before purchasing a vehicle
Continuing their intrusive behavior: “Background check and record keeping requirements that currently apply only to the purchase of pistols would also apply to the purchase of semiautomatic assault rifles. The same requirements for collecting and maintaining information on purchases of pistols would apply to purchases of semiautomatic assault rifles.”
What if dealerships were now required to pull your DMV record to determine if you were fit to drive? Would you be fine with that?
Granted, I know we have laws in place to revoke your driver’s license if you’ve had too many violations (or specific ones such as a DUI) but what if we did the same thing before purchasing your next car? Who gets to decide precisely what makes you a bad driver? And how far back to they get to look? I know I’m a very different driver today than I was in my youth; I’d suspect you were too.
Require vehicles to be securely stored or disabled by use of trigger-locks
I-1639 continues: “The initiative would create new criminal offenses for the unsafe storage of a firearm if a person who cannot legally possess a firearm gets it and uses it in specified ways. These crimes would apply to a person who stores or leaves a firearm in a place where the person knows, or reasonably should know, that a prohibited person may gain access to the firearm.”
Basically, it’s saying that you, as a legal gun owner, are now responsible for the actions of another should your firearm be stolen (or taken without permission, such as by your child) and then commits a crime with your stolen gun if you failed to “reasonably” secure it.
So, what if we make the same requirement of your car? Should you be required to not only lock up your car each day at home, but to securely store it in some fashion? What about at work or while you’re at the grocery store?
Maybe you’re only required to “lock up” your keys. Would you be willing and able to do that each and every day, every time you use your car? And if you didn’t, you could be charged with a felony in some cases!
In fact, just yesterday I heard about this 11 year old kid who stole his parent’s car and led police on a high-speed chase. Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured and, while they’re filing felony charges against the child in juvenile court, according to this law they may also be able to file felony charges against you in some cases when you had nothing to do with it. Is that fair to you?
What if, for instance, you locked up your keys in a gun safe like you’re supposed to, but a thief stole the safe, eventually broke into it, subsequently stole your car, and ended up getting into a fatal accident? Are you responsible then? What’s reasonable in this situation?
That said, the initiative does state that: “Those crimes would not apply if the firearm was in secure gun storage, meaning a locked box, gun safe, or other locked storage space that is designed to prevent unauthorized use or discharge of a firearm.”
We’ll see how long that wording stays in or how much wiggle room a prosecutor wants to apply to the law.
The initiative does attempt to clarify: “The crimes would not apply if the person who gets the firearm is ineligible to possess it because of age… [or] in cases of self-defense… [or] if the person who is ineligible to possess a firearm obtains it through unlawful entry, if the unauthorized access or theft is reported to law enforcement within five days of the time the victim knew or should have known that the firearm had been taken.”
Right. Like I said, we’ll see how judiciously such wording gets used and abused when there’s an overzealous prosecutor or judge involved.
Require approval from local police or sheriff to own a vehicle
“Finally, the initiative would require [law enforcement] to verify that people who have acquired pistols or semiautomatic assault rifles remain eligible to possess a firearm under state and federal law… [and] to take steps to ensure that persons legally ineligible to possess firearms are not illegally in possession of firearms.”
What if we did this with your car? What if authorities went so far as to track what car your’re driving and were able to revoke your driver’s license if they found out you were driving the wrong type of car for whatever reason?
Think this can’t happen? Nearly everything can be tracked these days, especially with the use of smartphones, GPS, and other smart devices. If they wanted to track which car you’re driving, they can figure it out.
Then it’s just a matter of tracking you down physically and revoking your license… or maybe they’ll just send you a text, lol.
I get the purpose behind the law. I do. And on the surface it sounds like a good step towards solving the problem, but we always have to remember that criminals don’t care about the law. Initiatives such as this really only hinder law-abiding citizens.
We also need to recognize that we already have laws in place to prevent or remove access to firearms from those who are most likely to harm themselves or others, specifically the mentally ill.
Of course, there’s also the duty of gun owners to recognize situations where easy access to your firearms may be a bad idea. If, for instance, you have a teenager (especially a male teen) who is showing signs of depression, lock up your guns!
Statistics consistently show that suicides are the primary cause of death by firearms, year over year, and that firearms are the chosen tool here in America. We cannot ignore this fact. But it shouldn’t be up to the government to tell us responsible gun owners how to act.
It’s up to us to take the initiative (no pun intended) and to do the right thing where we can, and if that means locking up your firearms when you never have before because your teenage son is now moody little shit, then do it.
Bad things do happen, but they can happen a lot less if we, as law-abiding and responsible gun owners, take the initiative on our own… pun intended.
Any survival or disaster situation is naturally going to require you to get a little creative.
This is because resources in any survival situation are going to be rather thin, and you’re going to have to learn how to make the best with what you have.
Fortunately, finding yourself in a survival situation doesn’t just mean that you are limited tosurvival tools that you may not even have on hand at the time.
This is because you can easily take everyday household items that you probably already have an abundance of and use those items to make surviving significantly easier.
Here are the top seven overlooked everyday items in your house that you can use for survival, presented in alphabetical order:
1. ALUMINUM FOIL
Aluminum foil already has agreat many uses around the house, and it likewise will for if and when you find yourself in a survival situation as well.
One of the best uses for aluminum foil will be to use it to help cook food in a survival situation. If all you have available is a fire rather than your stove or oven, you can wrap food in the aluminum foil and then place it next to the fire.
Another valuable use for aluminum foil will be to use it as a signal, since it can reflect the light of the sun. Additionally, you can also use aluminum foil will be to use pieces of it as a fishing lure, as fish are naturally attracted to bright objects.
2. BAKING SODA
If there’s only one personal hygiene item that you can have on hand in a disaster scenario, it should without questionbe baking soda.
This is simply because you can use baking soda to make virtually any other kind of personal hygiene item in existence, from soap to shampoo to deodorant to toothpaste to floor cleaner to dishwashing soap to laundry detergent.
All you really need to do is mix the baking soda with water in order to create a paste, and you can create any of those listed above.
3. COFFEE FILTERS
Another highly versatile but overlooked survival item is just an ordinary coffee filter. Besides the obvious use of using it to help make your morning cup of coffee, you can also use a coffee filter to filter through water, as fire tinder (mix with grease for the best effect), to wrap food, or as emergency toilet paper.
4. DENTAL FLOSS
Obviously dental floss can be used for oral hygiene in a survival situation, but you can use it for a great multitude of other purposes as well.
For example,you can use dental floss as fishing line, as a clothesline, to help build shelter, to make matches burn longer (simple wrap the floss around the matches), to set snares, for sewing, or as a tripwire.
NOTE: attach tin cans filled with a few pebbles to the tripwire, and you’ve created an emergency alert system. U.S. troops used this strategy to great effect to alert them to nearby Japanese troop movements in the Pacific campaign during World War II.
5. GARBAGE BAGS
It’s surprising that garbage bags don’t show up as often as they should in other lists of the best everyday items to use for survival, because they truly are among the most versatile items that you can possibly use for survival.
One of the best uses for a garbage bag will be to use it as a poncho, since you simply need to cut a few holes through it for your head and arms. You can also use a garbage bag as a makeshift tarp, as a mattress (simple stuff it full with leaves, grass, and pine needles), or as a wall or ceiling for an emergency shelter.
6. HAND SANITIZER
In addition to using hand sanitizer as a personal hygiene item in a survival situation, you can also use it to sanitize surfaces such as tables or knife blades, to help get fires going (sanitizer is very flammable), for treating mosquito bites (simply apply it directly to the site of the bite), or to remove stains from clothing.
7. PAPER CLIPS
In a survival situation, an ordinary paper clip will be one of the best alternatives to a normal fishing hook. Beyond that use, you can also use a paper clip to replace zipper tabs on a jacket, or as a toe or finger splint in the event of an injury.
BONUS: SODA CAN
Throwing a soda can away is the last thing you should do with it in a disaster situation. You can use the tab as a makeshift fishing hook (much as you could with an ordinary paper clip like we just mentioned), and you can also polish the bottom of the can with chocolate to help it reflect the sunlight for signaling. Alternatively, you can also clean out the inside of the can to use it for storage.
If there’s anything that you learn from this article, it’s that you shouldn’t neglect any ordinary items you have laying around the house. Chances are good that you can find at least one or two ways to use that item for survival in a disaster scenario.
I wanted to quickly let you know that my latest book, The Survival Toolbox: 67 Practical Tools and Supplies to Fix or Maintain Your Home After Disaster Strikes, is currently on Amazon and, best of all, the Kindle version is FREE today through November 5.
Please take a moment to download your copy while you can, after which I would very much appreciate you leaving a quick review when finished as doing so helps boost the book’s popularity and let’s Amazon know it’s good.
