The subject of EMPs/Solar Storms, as the author makes a it a point to allude to, is merely one component of a more robust preparation plan.

No, this book is not about doom and gloom, or the end of the world. This book, is however, about the very realistic fact that solar storms do and have taken place, and EMP [electromagnetic pulses] are a realistic concern/threat among many high-level individuals.

Many people scoff at the notion of having knowledge of preparedness and these are the same people that will literally spend thousands of dollars yearly on all types of insurances, for things they will in all high probably likely never use. That’s how the Insurance Companies make money, you know.

Ironically, the mere mention in some circles of a month’s worth of food – that you’re going to eat anyways, and thus not incur any additional financial cost like “real insurance” – makes some believe that certain preparedness principles are far out there. The reason? With TV Shows & Media that do nothing but marginalize individuals that are into preparedness, it’s no wonder the lot of the populace is brainwashed on the subject. And yet, all of our ancestors practiced – as they had too prudent preparedness in the past. Don’t believe me? How was food stored over the winter? It was canned and stored in a myriad of ways, among other things. It had to be, if not, you might eat less, or might not eat. It was certainly stored other ways as well. That shows a very practical precedent for general preparedness.

In any case, this book is more of an advanced tier into preparedness, but a needed one nonetheless.

Disaster Preparedness For EMP Attacks & Solar Storms by Arthur T. Bradley Ph.D is a rather swift read. It should take no more than 2-3 hours tops, or even quicker if you know many of the topics already covered.

The book is rather incisive in that it cuts through much of the BS that is out there online in regards to protection in mitigating EMP/Solar Storms. This is my favorite part of the entire book.

In a rather comprehensive way, this book addresses all areas of concern individuals interested in preparedness should be pondering. That is very helpful especially if you are a beginning prepper and just managed to jump into this topic.

Out of all preparedness subjects, an EMP/Solar storm threat is one of those issues that is extremely unlikely to happen, and yet, it’s quite possible especially when extreme solar activity and solar storms are taking place.

It really doesn’t take a lot to get prepared if you do it right. There is much misinformation/disinformation out there in regard to these subjects. This is one great reason why this book stands out.   Bradley goes straight to the point, and keeps it practical while not also overdoing it.

All in all, this book is a vital component for individuals interested in general preparedness.

That being said, before jumping on this book, people should probably make sure they have other more likely areas of concern [more possible/common areas]- such as earthquakes, tornadoes [we live in Tornado alley here], hurricanes, etc. – addressed.

Bradley makes his case with sound, verifiable and meaningful information that is sorely lacking in many other disciplines.   This can see throughout the entirety of the book, and only serves to buttress the information provided by the author.

The book even showcases a table that is very useful which outlines the shielding effectiveness of various enclosures.

While not in most people’s most likely scenarios to happen – and rightly so – EMPs/Solar Storms are something to keep in mind. If you think this book might help you, then by all means give it a consideration. The book is definitely high quality work for such an abstruse subject.

Malevolent Whispers

Twisted shadows creep forth…
morphing my soul into…

Desolation

Cries seep through
my skin…
Thereafter, darkness…
Engulfs me…
Consumes me…
Becomes me…

Devours my inner being, my essence

Thence…
A cocoon of spiritual darkness….
Absolutely heartless….
Transforms…
And…
Revamps..that which
Was to be righteous…

Into a darker strand…

Into something…
Deviously perfect.

Morphed into forlornness…
Am Awakened…galvanized…

Only tenebrous ambitions are left…
Malevolent perfection is amongst

Hallowed Angel


Hallowed Angel

That soft symphony enchants my senses
Spiraling my emotions each out of control
Amatory temptations blossom ever more
With every second she caresses my soul

All of those words charmingly resounding
Written carefully from the outset of the nib
Impeccably sung by the heart of an Angel
Yet composed sweetly by a young cherub

Soft and yet graceful this Angel sings forth
Pure elegant tunes coming from her heart
A sacred seamstress of poetic perfection
Her voice, purity – a Heavenly work of art

Venerated forever, she sings melodiously
Using all of the notes I have come to love
Gazing at her singing I then realize slowly
This Angel is more than I could dream of

Celestially precious this Angel I have met
Angelic perfection upon me she bestows
May the spirit she bares always be eternal
As the seraphic heart that within her glows

Financial Flagship – Managing Financial Oversights [Part 2]

“Recreational shopping is the shortest point between two points: you and broke”
– Victoria Moran

This is being written in order to help some friends out showing some of my person mishaps that have taken place, as well as hopefully aid anybody else with any ideas that might help them in any way/shape/form.

In Financial Flagship – Managing Oversights [Part-1], we covered some of the more basic financial oversights that yours truly was partaking in. From there in we analyzed how much was the total amount spent wasted due to such actions.

Now, we’re going to cover some additional mistakes that were zapping much of our financial latitude away at the outset.

Please keep in mind, these are conservative estimates for most of these.

Gym Membership @ LA Fitness:

Weekly: $50 [two people]
Monthly: $200
Yearly: $2400

Fast Food:

Weekly: $75
Monthly: $300
Yearly: $3600

Clothing:

Weekly: $20
Monthly: $80
Yearly: $960

Total from all financial oversights:

Weekly:$145
Monthly: $580
Yearly: $6960

Again, very similar to last time, if that last number isn’t disturbing, [SN] nothing will be.

Am showing you all this in hopes that you can all learn from my lapses in judgment.

Its easy to show one’s track record when its ahead of the stampede, running sky high, with nothing to cast shadows on your endeavors.

It takes guts however, to carry out some in depth insights into what kind of mistakes one is doing daily. With that said, what you ultimately do with this information is up to you. This is just shown in hopes to help people realize what kind of financial leaks they might undertaking that is blowing a hole into their savings/retirement funds at an enormous rate.

Do you carry out any similar things that you realize could be done better, or avoided? What have you learned from it? Hope that regardless of what’s taking place in each of our daily lives, a move forward is in the process or already being undertaken.

Ultimately, be it to spend, or to save, the choice is y/ours.

An Ode To Imagination

Fantasy

An Ode To Imagination

Let us begin to imagine the power of an endless verse
Or perhaps a canvas of truly breathtaking perfection
The potent nascent breath of a boundless universe
Coupled with the touch of a reverent lover’s affection

Imagine a road that takes you to infinity; everywhere
Or perhaps a door that opens to another dimension
Thence take that path to a beautiful choice elsewhere
Leading to an instant of heavenly blissful ascension

Consider the image of a storm of possible dreams
Where one thought fuses with the core of another
In which that moment binds to endless extremes
Taking this euphoria of possibilities one step further

Think about the instant you hear your perfect song
A true mellifluous tune that soothes you to your core
Where you truly know nothing could ever go wrong
Just like the moment you have with the one you adore

Ponder about the image of a wondrous happy home
Or a person who is your sanctum dispersing calamity
From this blissful moment one will never need roam
For those who stand by your side are true family
