On my way to Buroak.ca

So, soon I will be on my way to visit with Lucas the fellow who runs Buroak Wilderness Adventures

This is to take a look at his camp setup and see one of his demos and instruction seminars for a follow-up review.  There will be some photos and hopefully a video or two for the review.

See you soon or pop on over to Buroak Wilderness Adventures and we will see you there along with Zelda the Prepper Dog (sort of like a guide dog but she brings me sticks he he )!
Cheers ~wild_E

p.s.. he will soon have some advertising space at CanAmPreppers.net as well as at the forum !

Powerful message from an African Man on Learning

Excerpt ; “I looked at my father and looked at those dry fields; it was a future I could not accept. I was determined to do everything possible to receive an education. A book put knowledge in my hands. It said, ‘windmill could pump water and generate electricity’. Pumping water meant irrigation, a defence against hunger. So I decided to build a windmill. Many people, including my mother, said I was crazy

Self Talk is mostly from others that we replay in our heads and it affects our psyche and hearts. I suffer from this as well, as was pointed out recently to me by an Old Dear Friend. So trying to get rid of those “Self Talk thoughts that rattle around in there, when I let them, whether I want to or not” Out Demons out!!

Teaching WordPress

Hello everyone,
Sitting here in McDonald's teaching Virginia WordPress and how to set up a site. 

The difference from a regular website and a wordpress site is the ease in setup and the ease in updating. Another great feature is the advantage of posts and sending updates from your cell phone to the site.
