Notes from JWR:

Safecastle’s Freedom Awards Finalists are now posted on Safecastle’s blog site for public viewing and voting. By the way, one of the finalists is K.M., for his article “What is a Well-Stocked First Aid Kit?” (that appeared in SurvivalBlog.) Please post your vote at the Safecastle site for your favorite article or video, before January 20th.

My sincere thanks to the dozens of readers that have sent voluntary Ten Cent Challenge SurvivalBlog subscription payments, in response to my recent annual reminder.
