Preparedness Notes for Tuesday — October 13, 2020

Today is the 79th birthday of songwriter and singer Paul Simon. (Born, 1941.)

Today we present Part 1 of a guest article written by our friends and fellow bloggers, Don and Patrice Lewis. Patrice is the North Idaho-based Editrix of the excellent Rural Revolution homesteading blog. I strongly recommend bookmarking it. She is a regular columnist for WorldNet Daily. Patrice is also the author of a large series of “how-to” homesteading mini books, the nonfiction book The Simplicity Primer, and the co-author of How to Start a Home-based Craft Business. Most recently, Patrice branched out into writing Amish-themed Christian romance novels. The first of these is the highly-rated book The Amish Newcomer.

Keep in mind that Round 91 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest ends on November 30th, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entry. Remember that there is a 1,500-word minimum, and that articles on practical “how-to” skills for survival have an advantage in the judging.


  1. Paul Simon, truly a great songwriter. It’s hard to even decide which is my favorite song of theirs, probably “Rene and Georgette Magritte with Their Dog After the War.” Their best line is easy, “All lies and jests, still a man hears what he wants hear and disregards the rest.”

  2. The SHTF Anthology by Selco, a free 149 page book. An easy read that is packed full of what life was like during the Bosnian war, and how to survive. I have an acquaintance who was there, and almost did not live through it.
    He is highly motivated by what he sees is coming. I have his expert advice to draw on, but we should have as many different perspectives under our belt as possible.
