EPISODE-190 WHAT ARE YOU PREPARING FOR ??

Hi everyone!

Today’s episode is titled “what are you preparing for?” I Think that is a valid question. if you are prepping for many of the scenarios that are on the show “doomsday preppers” i think you need a reality check so i figures that that would be a good topic for todays show. Somehow this episode sipped through the cracks so some of the housekeeping is a little bit of old news.but the show is still good . I do have some better audio coming ,but i have to go through my mp3 recorder and use up some of these shows that slipped through the cracks first.

I want to get more people engaged and talking to each other so let me know what your thoughts are by leaving a comment below or by going to the forum and posting there.

EPISODE-187 SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

Hi everyone !

Today’s show is on my thoughts on situational awareness. Just because you are somewhere safe doesn’t mean you should let your guard down. If you practice situational awareness in your everyday life you can train yourself to do it automatically. i realized that i was doing it when i was on vacation with my family last week and i thought it may make a good topic for today’s show. hope you guys like it.
