I had something else planned for today but with all the destruction that happened in Japan last Friday, showing anything frivolous does not make sense.
My father was stationed in Japan during the Korean war. He loved the people and the country. My father worked for a company that imported from Japan, he was never happier than when he was dealing with the Japanese.
I lived in Japan in 1983. Misawa AFB, it is about 150 miles north of the destruction in Sendai. The Japanese people are the most gracious people. Never a day went by when I did not feel welcome in their country and treated like a honored visitor.
Everyday I pray for the people of Japan.
I recently found a wonderful site for Food Storage and Emergency preparation!!
Food Storage Made Easy
SO many ways to learn from these two; Jody and Julie
They have great categories: 10 baby steps, Recipes, Checklists, Emergency Preparation, Self Reliance
You can sign up for emails, where they will send you a 'checklist'. OR you can download all the checklists at once, ALSO there is a monthly newsletter.
I know one of the questions I have is about recipes... and how in the world would I cook without a stove/oven/microwave... and amazingly enough they have the answers...
There is a wealth of information here!
It may take a little bit of studying up on, but oh so helpful. Here on the West Coast there is always the possibility of something like an earthquake happening....ok, Living ANYWHERE, there is a 'possibility' of something along the vein of a natural disaster happening.
I need to learn more. period. end of story... or is it the start???
