Blog readers in Florida should plan to attend the Life Changes Be Ready Preparedness Expo and Gun Expo on Saturday January 19, 2013. I will be a guest speaker, via teleseminar. The event will be held at the Volusia County Fair and Expo Center in DeLand, Florida.

Randy K. came across a series of YouTube videos by a young woman who made a comprehensive switch to a homesteading lifestyle. Randy describes it as "...quite lively and entertaining. Unlike some of the run-of-the-mill stuff out there, she makes these videos personal and shares little bits of herself and family history. I thought you might be interested in seeing how she goes about doing things. What I'm personally finding very interesting is how she does sourdough. Just getting into bread making myself, her description of wild yeast capture took me quite by surprise. I'm looking forward to starting a 'mother', and seeing how long I can keep her going. On a more serious side, we are transitioning to making all of our breads and pastas. With a store of various grains, we can wean ourselves off the commercial garbage and into healthy carbs done at our pleasure. Her travel into that realm has me amped."

Two readers (H.M. and M.U.) both wrote to mention that Old Grouch Surplus still has German surplus aluminum alloy G3 magazines in good condition for $4 each. The folks at KeepShooting.com are presently sold out, but they tell me that they have another 150,000 G3 mags due to arrive in March.
