Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candles!
Living off grid for most means solar power for light to see when darkness falls and solar means sun. But when living in norther or southern latitudes the sun does not visit long and is often obscured by snow, rain, or a few clouds. We can not rely totally on solar and so we become creative to stay out of the dark. On this Thanksgiving day we went to the office/workshop to make candles.

Undoubtedly those who prep already understand that most people are not even remotely prepared for disaster. Even a temporary power outage is enough to stir panic in the general population, who typically have less than three days of food and scant supplies for dealing with emergencies. Most will turn quickly turn to government for help, relying on a system that may not be able to save them.
Given that the system has many vulnerabilities, from the faltering economic system to the threat of an EMP, there is wisdom in preparing for worst particularly given the dependence upon the Internet and technology for daily life.
Increasingly, digital payments, largely hinged on Internet and Wi-Fi connections, are how commerce is done and the general public has no clue what to do if that all stops.
The Mirror reports:
When the ATMs stop running or the internet goes down, theyll be the ones that make it out alive.
If anything to do with the internet goes down, half the planet will come to a standstill, Steve told Mirror Online, citing the fact that we work, bank and socialise online in the 21st century. 99% of your life relies on technology.
He recognises that many of these apocalyptic scenarios wont come to pass, but calmly suggests its better to be safe than sorry.
He also suggests limiting your reliance on technology, filling up a couple of spare jerrycans with petrol and learning how to filtrate water. Seasons can also play a part if its cold, how are you going to heat your house?
Go home and try it, Steve said. Turn of all your electrics. Try it for an hour. Or a week, and see how you get on. Have you got anything in the house that will let you keep on living without power?
Back up generators that run on gas or diesel are typically good options only for short-term emergencies spanning a couple of days. They are expensive to run, and gas supplies are unlikely to be available during a collapse or even a serious power outage.
I am often approached by pastors, deacons, and other church
members in positions of authority with questions about church
security. The interest is usually in forming some sort of security
team of volunteers and is focused on the legal concerns inherent in
doing so. I believe that these well-intentioned inquiries are often
born of misconceptions about what security really means. I feel it
is important to truly understand what the goals of church security
ought to be and what can be done...

and you still have a pan of snow at the end of the day.

In the post Weinstein world we now find ourselves in we have seen dozens and dozens of prominent figures in Hollywood, politics, and the media be accused of a wide range of sexual attacks on women.
From groping all the way to rape, powerful establishment figures are being outed as sexual predators across the country, with the mainstream media declaring that all accusers must, at least initially, be believed.
Amazingly, at the same time, mainstream media talking heads have either specifically ignored the numerous allegations against Bill Clinton or actually claimed that his accusers are discredited and cannot be believed. (Keep in mind all other accusers are automatically assumed to be telling the truth.)
With that being said, it was only a matter of time before that dam broke as well and now, with a series of explosive comments by an Obama and Clinton ally, one can hope that Bill Clinton may finally be brought to justice with Hillary forever shamed for her role in attacking the women who came forward.
In an interview conducted on a CNN podcast by former Obama chief adviser David Axelrod, former Obama Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius opened up about the cover-up and subsequent attacks on the women who accused then President Clinton in the 1990s.
Not only did people look the other way, but they went after the women who came forward and accused him, Sebelius stunningly detailed. Keep in mind this is a fact that the alternative media has reported on literally hundreds and hundreds of times while being attacked as right-wing conspiracy theorists for doing so.
And so it doubled down on not only bad behavior but abusive behavior. And then people attacked the victims, Sebelius continued.
Sebelius made clear that her criticism extends directly to Hillary Clinton herself who was widely known to be the driving force behind the attacks on her husbands accusers.
An article written about the podcast by CNN couldnt hide from the fact that this is absolutely Hillarys problem as well.
Sebelius extended her criticism to Hillary Clinton, and...
Yeah... I put this here in Bushcraft... Why????

If someone secretly installed software on your computer that recorded every single keystroke that you made, would you be alarmed? Of course you would be, and that is essentially what is taking place on more than 400 of the most popular websites on the entire Internet. For a long time we have known that nothing that we do on the Internet is private, but this new revelation is deeply, deeply disturbing. In my novel entitled The Beginning Of The End, I attempted to portray the Big Brother surveillance grid which is constantly evolving all around us, but even I didnt know that things were quite this bad. According to an article that was just published by Ars Technica, when you visit the websites that have installed this secret surveillance code, it is like someday is literally looking over your shoulder

A new Veterans Affairs study is showing that a parasite from Vietnam could be killing veterans who fought in the war a half a century later.
Hundreds of veterans have a new reason to believe they may be dying from a silent bullet. Test results show some men may have been infected by a slow-killing parasite while fighting in the jungles of Southeast Asia. The Department of Veterans Affairs this spring commissioned a small pilot study to look into the link between liver flukes ingested through raw or undercooked fish and a rare bile duct cancer. It can take decades for symptoms to appear. By then, patients are often in tremendous pain, with just a few months to live.
According to Fox News, of the 50 blood samples submitted, more than 20 percent came back positive or bordering positive for liver fluke antibodies, said Sung-Tae Hong, the tropical medicine specialist who carried out the tests at Seoul National University in South Korea. It was surprising, he said, stressing the preliminary results could include false positives and that the research is ongoing.
All those who tested positive for the parasite have been notified. Gerry Wiggins, who served in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969, has already lost friends to the disease ad he was among those who got the call. I was in a state of shock, he said. I didnt think it would be me.
The 69-year-old, who lives in Port Jefferson Station, New York, didnt have any symptoms when he agreed to take part in the study but hoped his participation could help save lives. He immediately scheduled further tests, discovering he had two cysts on his bile duct, which had the potential to develop into cancer, known as cholangiocarcinoma. They have since been removed hes doing well.
But other veterans have already succumbed to the parasites cancer-causing effects. Endemic in the rivers of Vietnam, the worms can easily be wiped out with a handful of pills early on, but left untreated they can live for decades without making their hosts sick. Over time, swelling and inflammation of the bile duct can lead to cancer. The symptoms, which include...
In mere months, China will have a ballistic missile completed and ready to strike anywhere in the world. And it can carry up to ten nuclear warheads.
The Dongfeng-41 missile, which is said to have the longest range of any ballistic rockets in the world, has undergone its eighth test and is now near completion, according to state-run media.
Previous reports have claimed that the missile has a range of at least 7,500 miles (12,000km) and could carry up to 10 nuclear warheads meaning it could strike multiple targets. The new missile also has a speed of more than Mach 10, or ten times the speed of sound (7,672mph) and can use decoy devices to find its way through the enemys missile defense systems.
It can carry up to 10 nuclear warheads, each of which can target separately, Xu Guangyu, a senior adviser of the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association told Global Times. The missile must have matured considerably if it is to be operational in 2018, Guangyu said.
The South China Morning Post reported that China had likely tested the ICBM (Intercontinental ballistic missile) in its Western desert area in early November, but it did not give the exact location or date of the test if there was one. The warhead will be inducted by the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) in 2018 after first being introduced in 2012, the report from Chinas state-run Global Times suggests.
Once the Dongfeng-41 goes into service, Chinas ability to protect its own safety and to prevent wars would greatly increase, said Guangyu. In July, a propaganda video from China claimed that Beijing owns about 2,500 ballistic missiles. In the video, Dongfeng-41 is highlighted as one of the worlds top five intercontinental missiles.
Some are saying that this is a message to president Donald Trump, although PLA denies those accusations. The development of this missile was also...

The 134 earthquakes that have had the San Andreas fault line rocking and rolling this past week are igniting fears that the big one could be just around the corner.
According to The Daily Mail, in the last week, 134 earthquakes have hammered a three-mile stretch around Monterey County on the San Andreas fault. Fresh fears have been raised that a huge earthquake is about to hit California after a swarm of recent tremors in the area.
Of those earthquakes, 17 were stronger than 2.5 magnitude and six of them were stronger than 3.0, with more tremors expected in the coming weeks, experts warn. It follows fears raised last week that the Big One is about to hit after a series of ten mini-quakes struck the same area. The swarm included one 4.6-magnitude quake that was felt in San Francisco more than 90 miles (145 km) away. The 4.6 shock was followed by 9 smaller aftershocks. The largest of these aftershocks measured a magnitude 2.8, Annemarie Baltay, a seismologist with the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, told SFGATE.
This one has been a quite productive aftershock sequence, said Ole Kaven, a US Geological Survey (USGS) seismologist. We suspect there will be aftershocks in the 2 to 3 [magnitude] range for at least a few more weeks, he said. There have not been any reports of injuries, writes San Francisco news outlet SFGate.
Experts have continuously warned that any activity along the San Andreas fault line is a cause for concern because of the soaring population that would be affected. Any time there is significant seismic activity in the vicinity of the San Andreas fault, we seismologists get ner...

In prepper lore, there is a theory about how badly desperate people are likely to behave. Many folks outside the community scoff at this theory. They believe that we have become more civilized than to utilize violent measures when hunger strikes.
But an incident in Morocco the other day showed us exactly how hungry people behave. And it isnt pretty.
Food was being distributed in a rural market in Sidi Boulaalam, a poor village. Women had come to the market with baskets to get food for their families, when suddenly, what could only be described as a stampede erupted.
At least 15 women died and five were wounded in a stampede during a food distribution operation on Sunday morning in rural Morocco, government officials said.
The victims were crushed as hundreds of people, mostly women, gathered to collect baskets of food at the market
In the aftermath of the stampede, clothes and other personal items were left scattered across the ground. (source)
That number was later updated to 40 people who were injured in the crush.
Witnesses told local media that this years annual food aid distribution at a local market in Sidi Boulaalam, an impoverished town with just over 8,000 inhabitants, attracted a larger crowd than usual.
This year there were lots of people, several hundred people, a witness who asked to remain anonymous told AFP news agency.
People shoved, they broke down the barriers, he said, adding that the injured had been evacuated to a hospital in Marrakesh. (source)

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, many are planning festivities which include feasts and gatherings with friends and family. But some others, like gun control activists, seek to make your holiday as miserable as possible.
Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, used the trending hashtag #ThanksgivingWeek to call on parents to inquire about guns in homes where their child may be visiting this year.
Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) November 20, 2017
Watts has been fighting against gun owners for years, pushing for gun control legislation, and has encouraged businesses to adopt gun-free policies. She is also the board chair for Rise to Run, an organization focused on encouraging communist young women to run for office.
But once again, proving that leftists are actually the violent ones who wish for the death of those who dont believe the same fantasies they do, the lemmings who follow Watts were out in full force.
Guns in Trunpist families should be stored as recklessly as possible.
grailsnail (@grailsnail) November 20, 2017
What most leftists dont realize is that most gun owners dont care about their emotions. They probably will relish a Thanksgiving dinner without the political diarrhea that so many gun control activists spew. If I were asked the question Watts proposed, I would tell the person asking that its none of their business and if they dont like then tough.

I have friends of mine that ask me all the time after the winter ends. JJ, I just dont understand ithow did I get so heavy during the winter!
First thing you do, put down the fork. Secondly, you have to exercise and train. Nobody wants to in the wintertime, especially in their cold basement or if they have weights out on the back porch or in a shed. The wintertime comes, and you have to keep up the exercise. My gym is self-contained on the porch of my cabin. Ive lifted outside when it is -10 degrees F, straight up temperature. There are a few things I do to lower the cold and its effects. You can do these things, too, in your gym at home.
If you have a basement gym or a porch gym, the first thing you do is close the gaps. My front porch is wood, and I close up the gaps by laying down a rubberized matalmost akin to a carpet. It covers the floor/porch boards and prevents both moisture and cold from entering the porch. I also have it closed off and weatherized for the winter. I take a space heater and place it on a large piece of ceramic tile and heat it up for about 15 minutes prior to my workout.
I use weightlifting gloves, but when it goes below 32 F I need to use gloves that cover the entire hand. I prefer mittens with leather-like palms. Next thing, I place a blanket over the entrance to the porch and leave it just open a little on the sides to allow air to circulate. I pre-prep all of my water bottles with warm waterand this way keep it from being bone-chillingly cold when I drink.
If you cant pick up a rubberized carpet somewhere, you can take plastic (plastic sheeting or even plastic garbage bags opened up by slitting them at the edges), and lay it down on your surface, then cover this with a blanket. It helps to keep you from losing heat into the floor and allo...

Personal information - MUST READ
The personal data of least 57 million customers and drivers from the highly popular company Uber Technologies Inc. was stolen by hackers in October 2016 and the company not only paid the criminals who took their customers data but also subsequently illegally covered up the the hack itself.
News of the hack has reverberated around the world after a Bloomberg report revealed the stunning details and, in response, the company fired its chief security officer and one of his deputies for their role in what amounted to an illegal scheme to cover-up the hack that included a $100,000 payment to the hackers in return for a promise to delete the data and keep quiet about it.
According to Bloomberg:
Compromised data from the October 2016 attack included names, email addresses and phone numbers of 50 million Uber riders around the world, the company told Bloomberg on Tuesday.
The personal information of about 7 million drivers was accessed as well, including some 600,000 U.S. drivers license numbers. No Social Security numbers, credit card information, trip location details or other data were taken, Uber said.
At the time of the incident, Uber was negotiating with U.S. regulators investigating separate claims of privacy violations. Uber now says it had a legal obligation to report the hack to regulators and to drivers whose license numbers were taken.
Instead, the company paid hackers to delete the data and keep the breach quiet. Uber said it believes the information was never used but declined to disclose the identities of the attackers.
Take note that at the time of the hack Uber was already dealing with investigations into privacy violations and news of a new hack would have been devastating for the company. It is also extremely unlikely that a hack of this magnitude was not known throughout the entire upper echelon of Uber. Make no mistake, this was a concerted effort and amounted to a crime under federal and state laws.
In a statement the companies new chief executive officer, Dara Khosrowshahi, (most likely worried about an impending federal investigation) said there were no excuses for Ubers actions.
None of this should have happened, and...

North Koreas antics are having an effect on the Olympics. With less than three months before the Winter Olympics open in Pyeongchang, South Korea, the Games are struggling to draw visitors from home and abroad, largely because of fears about the secretive and unpredictable neighbor to the North just 50 miles away.
As of November 16, organizers say theyve hit just 41% of their sales target of 1.06 million tickets, with sales in South Korea even weaker than those by international tourists, according to USA Today. Anbritt Stengele, the founder of Sports Traveler, a Chicago-based travel agency, said shes never seen such a sluggish market.
The interest level is very low for this Olympics, said Stengele. We had Sochi (Russia) in 2014, and that interest level was lower than Vancouver (in 2010). But this one is even lower than Sochi. I would just classify it as extremely light interest. Sales have been stagnant. She and other travel agents say there are a few factors that are affecting interest in the Winter Games, and a good many are from fears about North Korea aggression.
Stengele said North Korea is a big factor, as global tensions are running high over threats exchanged by President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kim has conducted a record number of ballistic missile tests this year, as well as a test of its most powerful nuclear weapon to date. Both leaders have threatened to annihilate the others country if they order a first strike.
North Korea also has a massive artillery aimed directly at South Korea, and thats unsettling to travelers who wish to see the games. Stengele also said shes heard concerns abo...
Frances Institute for Radioprotection and
Nuclear Safety published this graphic
to show radiation levels.
One month after a mysterious radiation cloud was observed over Europe, whose source remained unknown last week speculation emerged that it may have been the result of a nuclear accident in Russia or Kazakhstan, on Tuesday Russian authorities confirmed the previous reports of a spike in radioactivity in the air over the Ural Mountains. In a statement, the Russian Meteorological Service said that it recorded the release of Ruthenium-106 in the southern Urals in late September and classified it as extremely high contamination.
Earlier this month, Frances nuclear safety agency earlier this month said that it recorded a spike in radioactivity, and said that the most plausible zone of release of this radioactive material lies between the Volga and the Urals from a suspected accident involving nuclear fuel or the production of radioactive material. The agency noted, however, that it is impossible to determine the exact point of release given the available data. Luckily, it said the release of the isotope Ruthenium-106 posed no health or environmental risks to European countries.
At the time, Russias state-controlled Rosatom corporation the same company implicated in the Uranium One scandal said in a statement that there had been no radiation leak from its facilities. That changed when the Russian meteorological service (Rosgidromet) reported that it had detected record levels of radiation in the villages located in Russias Ural region adjacent to Rosatoms Mayak plant for spent nuclear fuel. Some calculated that the radiation exposure levels were up to 1,000x higher than the normal rate.

The largest volcano in Iceland is showing scientists signs that it could erupt. Its now under close surveillance after centuries of slumber.
The Icelandic Met Office has received reports of the surrounding area smelling of sulfur, while geothermal water has been released from the volcano into a river on the surrounding glacier, reports Iceland Magazine. Scientists believe that this geothermal water caused a section of the volcano to collapse, producing a new caldera.
The new caldera (a basin-shaped volcanic depression) has been discovered by scientists in rfajkull. Because of all of these unusual events, Icelands Civil Protection Agency has declared an uncertainty phase. Thats basically a warning that there may be a threat in the near future. At the same time, the Met Office has issued a yellow warning.
While earth scientists studying the volcano are reluctant to give any sort of timeframe for an eruption as always, eruptions of even active volcanoes are notoriously impossible to predict there has been considerable geothermal heat measured at the caldera, and the release of gases has been detected. As such, nothing is being ruled out.
Brynds r Gsladttir, natural resource specialist at the Met Office, told newspaper Morgunbladid: We issued a yellow warning for security reasons because we actually dont know that much about rfajkull glacier, nor how it behaves because its last eruption occurred in 1727, and 1362 before that.
According to the Independent, rfajkull features Icelands highest peak and is thought to be one of the most powerful volcanoes in Europe. It is responsible for the countrys second deadliest eruption after a steam blast in 1362 deposited 10 cubic kilometers of debris across farmland and killed all inhabitants across dozens of farms.
Although still sparsely populated, the region can attract thousands of tourists at the height of the holiday season. The Icelandic Civil Protectio...
