Update – 05/22/12: Hello again! The site is pretty much functional now, so feel free to browse around! Unfortunately adding all of the original blog posts is turning out to be a rather involved, time-consuming process. Due to the way the site was hacked, I wasn’t able to export a complete back-up of the entries. I was only able to copy & paste the text itself. Which means I now have to go back through & recreate each entry, one at a time! I hope you’ll continue to be patient; I promise, all of the content will be back up as soon as possible! Thanks!

⋄ Provident Parties ⋄
Especially for Children!
It is a sad social commentary that the national market for children’s parties is beginning to rival that of the wedding industry. Psychologists are concerned about the negative impact this over-indulgence is having on our wee ones. Seven year olds feel neglected if they don’t have a limo for their guests and guests have been known to throw down ‘party bags’ that didn’t meet their expectations.
In addition to the psychological and developmental concers, let us consider the negative impact on our BUDGETS!! First, let me establish that I come from a long line of partiers, grew up in a very modest income family with four children and have raised four children. From my earliest memories, birthdays were special for the birthday celebrant, always recognized with fanfare, gifts were exchanged and sometimes friends invited over.
For my own children, they had ‘friend’ parties nearly every year and their parties were often the hot ticket of the kiddie social season. BUT, all of this celebrating did not require the overuse of plastic money, hired party consultants, a nervous breakdowns, no trips to commercial ‘crazy centers hosted by Robbie Rodent’’ and yet plenty of fond memories.

⋄ Who or What Is BOB? ⋄
BOB – Bug-Out Bag, aka “72 hour kit” or “Go Bag” – is your best friend and hero who will help you navigate nearly any crisis.
Though often thought of as merely for evacuation emergencies, BOB is also an easy method of assembling and quickly accessing equipment needed for a multitude of emergencies. Though you may never face a large-scale natural disaster, you may be forced to ‘shelter in place’ or evacuate in a moment’s notice due to severe weather, broken water pipes, loss of power, gas main break, toxic chemical spill, flat tire…..the list is nearly endless. The important thing to remember is that NOT preparing does NOT protect you from crisis, it only makes any crisis more painful.
