Warm Up With This Winter Heat Review Part 2

Here's the video that show how I safely prepare the space heaters for an advancing winter storm of ice and snow. I also put the 12volt battery on charge to get ready for any power outage. The system I present provides 800 watts of power and has been used to power a TV, bread maker and some lights at the same time. We did end up loosing power for about an hour during the first brunt of the ice...

Episode-178- How Do I Retire? Review Of The Savage Number

Today's video presents a review of The Savage Number by Terry Savage. I got this book from the library in hopes to evaluate my plan to retire at age 55 and it did not disappoint me. Ms. Savage presents a number of methods and questions for evaluating the realistic goal of retiring and doing so without having to resort to eating cat food as long as you plan carefully and examine the...

Hurricane Sandy Affects

We are well inland in northern Virginia but it sucks to be in New York City and many other East coast locales tonight. Good call to the leaders there taking the steps they did with closings and evacuations.  This is certainly a history book storm but again nothing we haven't dealt with before in this area. Glad to have missed out on any mad rushes for supplies or what not. The weather at...

Hurricane Sandy Arrives

With three storm fronts coming together the Feds in DC closed the government for Monday October 29 and from the Weather Channel's website I gathered the following  ..."The time for preparing and talking is about over," Federal Emergency Management Administrator Craig Fugate said as Hurricane Sandy made its way up the Atlantic on a collision course with two other weather systems that could...

Hurricane Sandy Coming

Today was a busy day prepping for Hurricane Sandy coming for a visit. This is a no shit storm and that means no power, no hot water, and as well as no travel. That is it will be that way if you don't have your preps ready or if you haven't worked out a plan with your neighbors. Bugging in is plan A as this storm is wide and wicked but Plan B will get buttoned up tomorrow. My preps for the...

Hurricane Sandy Preparation

Sandy has certainly made her intention to slam the area in which I live and there's no hoping she'll just away. At least I am abandoning hope and preparing for what I have experienced before. Hurricanes after hurricanes in Japan and even during the first Mt. Fuji rock festival. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuji_Rock_Festival Here in northern Virginia we have had to deal with Hurricane Isabel,...

Hurricane Sandy Alert

              Hurricane Sandy is headed our way in northern Virginia so it's time to check the preps and prepare to batten down the hatches if necessary. Going to head to get a chainsaw, D batteries, and plywood. We're good on all other preps and we'll also prepare to bug out if necessary. Will print list of hotel numbers 100 miles to the west and bug out there...

Episode-130- Crazy Crazy People With Molotov Cocktails

                      Can you believe this song was number one in the USA in 1965. So prescient and the intro is by none other than Jerry Lewis. My effort today is a fuck you back to freaks who intend harm. So I'm getting through the day at work when someone says Molotov cocktails were tossed in the mall food court across the street....
