Smart Spending for Preppers Looking for Financial Freedom

by Jerry M Using your money wisely can pay many dividends for you over time. Learning to spend your money wisely is a habit most people must learn through discipline, it is usually not inbred into a person’s lifestyle (please read: The Total Money Makeover: Classic Edition: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness).

Goal Zero Solar Charger Review

by Warmongerel I’ll admit it: I’m a “computer junkie”. I have a Kindle Fire, a regular Kindle, two laptops and my phone. I also have 4 regular “tower” computers. And that doesn’t include what my daughter has. All of that in a house with two people. Yeah, I’m a junkie. My girlfriend calls me a biker-geek. Love that.

Where There is No Doctor a Village Health Care Book: Weekly product review

Some reviews are simple to write, some are difficult. This is one of the simple ones, firstly I need to tell you that I purchased this book with the intention of adding to my library of medical knowledge.
