George W. Sears - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George W. Sears - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: George Washington Sears (December 2, 1821 – May 1, 1890) was a sportswriter for Forest and Stream magazine in the 1880s and an early conservationist. His stories, appearing under the pen name, "Nessmuk" popularized self-guided canoe camping tours of the Adirondack lakes in open, lightweight solo canoes and what is today called ultralight camping.

Please Burglarize Me!

Please Burglarize Me! | PreppingToSurvive.com: Community sites such as FaceBook, Google , and LinkedIn, among others, ask for quite a bit of personal information. They want to know where you went to high school, where you’ve worked, and your religious and political leanings. They want know your kids’ names, your socio-economic background, and who your friends are. This is not new. FaceBook’s prying into our personal lives and sharing that with advertisers has made the mainstream media’s news for years now. The same is true for Google’s tendency to sift through our emails and collect our search terms so they can proffer more targeted ads and sell our “aggregated” information. We freely give this information away so that we can better “connect” with old friends and make new acquaintances.

How to Extract a Tooth | Doom and Bloom (TM)

How to Extract a Tooth | Doom and Bloom (TM): The basis of modern dentistry is to save every tooth if at all possible. In the old days (not biblical times, I mean 50 years ago), the main treatment for a diseased tooth was extraction. If we find ourselves in a collapse situation, that’s how it will be in the future. If you delay extracting a tooth because it “isn’t that bad yet”, it will likely get worse. It could spread to other teeth or cause an infection that could spread to your bloodstream (called “sepsis”) and cause major damage. Like it or not, a survival medic, will eventually find himself or herself in a situation where you have to remove a diseased tooth.
