There is some interesting data on how to run a self-sufficient farmstead on a tight budget at: http://www.eartheasy.com Yeah, they’re tree huggers, but that does not detract from their useful knowledge. Anyone that can make a living like that deserves some attention.(The editors live on next to nothing in British Columbia.) They publish a free e-newsletter.

The gent who operates Freeze Dry Guy recently updated his website (http://www.freezedryguy.com). And BTW, we just updated the link from his ad on SurvivalBlog. (The link formerly was to e-mail him. It now goes directly to his web site.) Check it out!

Wow! The last time I checked, the spot price of COMEX silver was at $8.80 per ounce, and gold was at $516.60. It looks like they’ve bounced back after their profit-taking, just as I predicted. If you think that you’ve missed the boat, not to worry. The precious metals are just starting a secular bull market run which will probably span a decade or more. Buy on the next dip. A couple of years from now, you will look back wistfully at any spot silver price of under $12 an ounce as a great bargain. Don’t hesitate. Otherwise, you’ll kick yourself, doubtless with vociferous “Shoulda, Woulda, Couldas”!

I made a few more additions to the SurvivalBlog Glossary.
