  1. Preparedness and Survival
    I bought these books for DH for Christmas. Is anyone familiar with them? There is quite a bit of information in them about homesteading/prepping/etc.... Even a whole chapter on how to make your own coffin :dopey:

    A lady at our church is hosting Turbo Fire excerise classes four times a week for a hour. I was wondering if anyone has used this program and what kind of results they saw. This is my fifth time doing it today and I think I see something going on. Thank you for your replies.
