"Survival preppers" want to be prepared for any emergency.
Whether it's a natural disaster like a hurricane or tornado, or a man-made disaster such as civil unrest or government collapse, we want to be ready. We want to make sure that are families are safe, no matter what catastrophe happens.
But of all the things we prep for, there's nothing more scary than biological/chemical disasters, such as an act of deliberate bioterrorism, or a rampant pandemic, or an accidental biohazard release.
In this guide for the new prepper, Sealing Yourself In, we turn our attention to dealing with these disasters. You can use the information in this book to supplement your current hunker-down and bug-out plans to help you be prepared for any bio-chemical disaster that might happen.
Lots of preppers focus on what supplies they need to stockpile for emergencies, and their GOOD (get out of Dodge) evacuation plans. But there's one thing that's more important than all of this.
And that is to develop the right mindset for survival. What makes a good survival prepper is how mentally prepared we are to face the challenges that may or may not be headed our way in today's world. It's the mindset that allows us to stop burying our heads in the sand, and to develop the mental focus that puts our family's safety first.
This book is written for "ordinary folks" who want to get started on survival prepping. If you are already an experienced prepper, this book might be a good refresher. But it's really written for the average Jane and Joe to get started on survival prepping.
And in this book we're going to focus on information to help you develop the mindset to face the most frightening survival scenarios out there. We'll start by looking at the various types of chemical and biological hazards, and the most common bioterrorism agents.
We'll dive in to some details to help us be prepared. We'll look at the items to add to your hunker-down emergency supplies to help you cope as best as you can with bioterrorism, pandemics, and bio-chemical hazards.
Don't let these scary scenarios scare YOU! Knowledge is power, and it's time to gain the knowledge you need to "seal yourself in" and keep yourself and your family safe.
The recent weather phenomenon of Hurricane Sandy, a super-storm that left tens of millions of people along the East Coast without power, food, or water revealed the readiness (or lack thereof) of the average person. In a society that increasingly depends on other people’s actions for its daily needs, self-sufficiency in a survival situation has become somewhat of an antiquated notion. The example of Sandy, however, proved that disasters do not care where you live or how much money you make. Mother Nature’s disasters, ranging from a hurricane to an earthquake to tornado's or even a volcanic eruption, have the ability to disrupt civilized society at any second. Do you have a plan for disaster readiness?

Peri Minneopa has heard her name mangled a thousand ways and hates them all. What she likes are clean houses, and dirty martinis. She recently traded in her housecleaning business for a P.I. license. Her timing seems perfect, when she cleans a former client’s freezer and finds a severed hand inside, wearing an expensive ring. The client, Benny Needles, is a Dean Martin fanatic who swears he’s innocent. But where there’s a hand, there’s a body, waiting to be found. It’s a brand new world for Peri, and she has a lot to learn. Her first lesson is that investigating murder can be dangerous. Her boyfriend, Skip, a detective in the Placentia Police Department tries to warn Peri, but she can’t stop sticking her nose into the middle of things. In the middle of trying to solve the case, Peri takes on a surveillance job and finds that even surveillance isn’t always low risk. As these two cases collide, will Peri learn the truth behind both of them? And more important, will she ever get that dirty martini?

Posadas County, New Mexico, has very few mean streets and no city-slick cop shop. But it has an earnest, elected Sheriff and an aging Undersheriff—William C. Gastner.
Pushing sixty, Bill has no other life than law enforcement—and doesn’t want one, even if he’s being gently nudged toward retirement. Then, trouble strikes. A car full of teens, evading a traffic stop, goes airborne into a rocky outcrop, killing all five passengers and revealing a package of cocaine stashed under the seat. Has someone brought serious crime to the county?
When a second explosion of violence fells an undercover cop, the sheriff’s department pulls together to make a formidable team, but its weak spot may be Bill. His mind is too tough to crumble but his long-mistreated body is gradually succumbing to stress. Ignoring all advice, he pilots the case to a final confrontation where the fate of the killer—and the cop—will be decided…
Former Posadas County Sheriff Bill Gastner, now a New Mexico Livestock Inspector, is enjoying a day on Herb Torrance’s ranch—soaking in the sun as he counts a small herd of cattle and thinking about an upcoming lunch with an old friend back in town. But a light breeze stirs dust, a horse spooks, and Bill finds himself ferrying a broken cowpuncher in the back of his SUV, headed out to meet an ambulance.
Moments later, Bill’s day goes from bad to worse as he is summoned by undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman to an investigation of an unattended death. Too impatient for Bill to finish up out at the ranch, old George Payton had decided to eat lunch on his own. A couple of bites later, he collapsed—dead of an apparent heart attack. But something isn’t right. It may well have been a heart attack, Estelle agrees, but something triggered it. Before any questions can be answered, the small herd of cattle Bill had just counted is found wandering down a county highway. But there’s no sign of cowpuncher Pat Gabaldon or his boss’ $40,000 truck and livestock trailer. Forced into two tangled investigations, Bill faces one of the most complex cases in his 35-year career.
Liu astutely shows the reader how to save time and money by preparing a larger amount of chicken, and freezing the extras. But unlike other “cook ahead” books, you don’t get stuck eating the same dish over and over. Each time you want to use the chicken, you take out just what you need, and then make a fresh dish from among the recipes provided (and they are tasty!).
Recipes are organized into well thought-out sections on “Salads”, “Soups and Stews”, “Sandwiches, Pitas, or Tortillas”, “Pastas”, “Rice”, and “One-Dish Dinners.” They cover the full range from the quick-and-easy staple (chicken salad sandwiches) to the wow-your-guests spectacle (chicken, rice, and Mango lettuce wraps). The recipes for the chicken with red mole sauce and the chicken and chickpea stew are top choices that would each be well worth the price of purchase by itself.
Sprinkled among the amazing recipes and practical tips are surprisingly interesting anecdotes and facts about—what else—chicken.
Twice as Nice is a great read for the foodie who lives hard and works hard, but still craves great home cooking!

With such an increased emphasis on health and nutrition, which comes on the heels of the rising obesity epidemic, many people are researching ways to significantly improve their diet. There are countless diets currently on the market that don't work, or give you results that in turn diminish your health. Superfoods are just that, super. While a number of foods provide the body with a healthy amount of vitamins and minerals, each of these foods step up their game to offer something usually reserved for expensive supplements that still fail to bring what these foods do to the table.
What are Superfoods exactly? A Superfood is a food that is packed with phytonutrient content that deliver considerably more health benefits than other types of foods. They are nutrient and mineral rich and high in antioxidants. This combination will balance a diet while leaving the body more time to fight and prevent diseases over a more robust life cycle. So many of the health problems that people suffer from are directly related to their diets. Foods that are high in saturated fats, additives, and artificial ingredients contribute to problems while Superfoods prevent them and benefit the mind as well. Superfoods are easy to find in your local grocery stores. They don't come from the depths of the Amazon rainforest, but rather, anchor the oases of healthy foods in the modern market that you have seen your whole life.
Superfoods are not a diet but an addition. Make the conscious and thoughtful choice to augment your present diet with any or all of the foods listed below. The best part? They are not a burden on the palate but provide a sea of new tastes and flavors.
We have provided you with a Primer on introducing Superfoods into your diet through this collection of 50 Dinner, Snacks and Dessert Recipes. Each is easy to prepare while providing a wealth of nutritional benefits. There are 25 dinner recipes that we have prepared in our test kitchen to make them simple and healthful. The 25 snack and dessert recipes included show that eating mindfully can also be indulgent, to a point, as well as fun.
Start your day with Paleo. You have probably heard about fad diets like the Atkins Diet as well as things like Slim Fast. These diets, along with crash diets like the lemonade diet and the grapefruit diet are designed to help people lose weight but they are not necessarily designed to improve your health. The Paleo Diet, on the other hand, is scientifically proven to provide a number of significant health benefits. Individuals who follow the Paleo Diet often notice an improvement in symptoms related to chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and even heart disease. Many people who switch to the Paleo Diet also claim that they have more energy and that they experience an improved sense of overall wellbeing.

After spending nearly 20 years working with Special Operators as an active duty Navy SEAL, SEAL Instructor and a Civilian Independent Contractor, SEALDAD™ noticed that, although the men he worked with came from completely different backgrounds, they shared a common set of values, character traits and were genuinely good people. They were, for the most part, not the Rambo type characters portrayed in the movies, but regular guys with extraordinary drive, dedication, dependability and an uncommon ability to succeed at anything they set their minds on. Noticing the declining character of young people in today's society, and being a father himself; SEALDAD™ has set out to identify some of the character traits of a Navy SEAL, that he believes make up the foundation of a good, solid person who becomes a welcomed asset to everyone he or she is around. He relates stories from lessons learned in the SEAL Teams to his unconventional parenting methods. This is a raw and honest look into a SEAL's personal relationship with his own children and the methods he uses to shape their character.

There are times when life doesn’t turn out as you expected. Then there are times when life punches you in the gut, takes your wallet, and leaves you hanging upside down by your toenails.
2009 was one of those times for me (the gut-punching kind). My construction business faltered after the housing bubble burst, and my wife and I found ourselves in $50,000 worth of debt. Then came the toughest decision of our young lives: we left the community we loved and moved into my parents' basement in search of a simpler life.
Part of the change included laying aside my aspirations for wealth and taking up the vocation of my dreams: I would try to make money writing full time. This is the story of my first year doing exactly that.
I would try to build a life out of words.
Also included in the book are nine essays from folks who make money writing – they share unique tips on how to find writing work and how to improve your craft. Contributors include Andi Cumbo, Bryan Allain, Ed Cyzewski, Jason Boyett, Jeff Goins, Jennifer Luitwieler, Ken Mueller, Kristin Tennant, and Stacy Barton.
"Recycling Jimmy is energetic, imaginative, relentlessly and unabashedly vulgar, and at times, funny enough to make a cranky reviewer laugh out loud. This belongs on every eccentric fiction fan's short list of oddball black comedies..." Booklist

A parody of JRR Tolkien’s fantasy prequel masterpiece, The Wobbit A Parody (Of The Hobbit) is a tale of low-to-medium adventure with plenty of cheap laughs.
The quest begins when thirteen dwarf bankers go in search of the dragon who stole their deposits and ate their borrowers. They visit a former employee and hire him back as a contractor: former teller Bulbo Bunkins (who would rather be enjoying a cocktail in his recliner.) Bulbo surprises the dwarves with his ability to “think outside the strong-box,” like when he points out that none of the dwarves have brought swords with on their dragon-slaying mission. Encounters with gourmet trolls, wiseguy goblins, resort-keeper elves, deadly but comforting giant spiders, and the egocentric dragon, Smug, are just a few of the adventures that Bulbo puts up with. Finally, when he thinks things can't get any worse, he finds himself making a guest appearance at the Battle Of Six Or Seven Armies.
The author hopes that Bulbo Bunkins soon takes a place among the immortal characters of parody literature, like The Tick and Scrooge McDuck. Written by an actual unemployed banker, The Wobbit A Parody (Of The Hobbit) will, with any luck at all, earn enough money to make his return to banking unnecessary.
NOTE: THIS IS BOOK ONE IN A SERIES. THE SEQUEL PICKS UP FROM THE SAME STORYLINE, AND ADDRESSES ANY QUESTIONS THIS BOOK ENDS WITH. THANK YOU!
An awkward family homecoming at Christmas.
A humiliating public weigh-in, with two judging parents as the audience.
The announcement of a deadline for arranged marriage doom.
And that's just the first two chapters.
In "Year of the Chick," Romi Narindra must find love before her parents find her a husband.
But this is North America, not Calcutta! Who lets their parents choose their husbands?!
Easy to say, less easy to live through, as this book takes you deep inside "awkward Indian living in the West."
To escape her fate, Romi wades through the waters of secret-dating, where self-consciousness is at an all-time high, and experience at an all-time low. It's the sort of thing that would turn almost anyone into a man-crazy freak with romance tunnel-vision, and that's exactly what happens to her. All the while, a lack of inspiration in her corporate job leads Romi to her love of writing, in what quickly becomes a man-quest play-by-play.
From whiskey-breath scum bags to uni-brow creeps and everything in between, Romi and her wingmen come up empty time after time.
And that's when she meets a fellow writer.
On the Internet.
So will it be arranged marriage doom, or an Internet affair that's not as creepy as "To Catch a Predator"?
Time will tell in the "year of the chick," a twelve-month quest to find love.
DISCLAIMER: this book contains profanities, blunt accounts of the dating scene, and many awkward family moments. Enjoy!
Children love to find hidden pictures. This little book has 10 activity pages with over 100 things for children to search for. The pictures are full color, but they work on the black and white Kindle too.
There are pictures of what to find, so young children who can't read can search. I put the pictures to look for on the same page, so you don't have to turn the page to find your things.
Amy the Alien is hiding on each page. (She's on the cover too! Can you find her?) Finding Amy was my 7 year old's favorite part.
This book has been revised to keep the puzzle on the same page with the items to find!
**Please note: This is not an interactive game. It is a book, like a paper book, only for the Kindle. Kids look and try to find the pictures, much like finding Waldo or the I Spy books.**
You Can't Scare Me is the second book in the Life With Stef series. In book 1, The 'In' Crowd, Stef learned about forgiveness and friendship.

"If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other." - Dr. Richard Schulze, Medical Herbalist from herbdoc.com.
Hats off to you! You've just plunged into a wealth of information that hardly any professional doctors have a clue about. Get ready to relish in the brilliance of the kitchen miracle that surgeons shun and doctors disgrace.
A sea of unknown, unrevealed information awaits you. This book will act as your guide, so that you will soon be able to harness the full power of cayenne - the herb I once took for granted, and the herb that I now owe my health.
Everyone out there seems to be promoting good health. Well, that's great. Good health is something that needs to be promoted.
You need herbs, not drugs. You need nature, not synthetics. You need to use the proven, natural, side-affect-free healers that the earth is full of, not the clear, cold liquids that scientists processed through a test tube.
If I had the time, I'd drive from house to house, shaking people out of their beds and telling them to wake up to the miracles of cayenne. But I can't, so I've got the next best thing.
This report, which I've been compiling for a while, is brimming with the fiery brilliance of cayenne and all that I've found out about it.
For example, cayenne has been known to cure 17 big diseases. It has been known to stop a heart attack in a matter of minutes. It can sharpen your vision better than the most powerful contact lenses available. It can expand your arteries like anything, giving the blood room to really flow and travel everywhere, from your arms (giving you strength) to your brain (giving you better brainpower). It can cure arthritis and much, much more.
If your heart can't pump enough blood to a certain area, take cayenne pepper.
Because if you're on prescription medications, you could take up to a year (or more!) to heal. But if you take cayenne, you could cut it down to a month or two.
Did you know that if you take garlic in the right proportions, you can bring your blood pressure back to normal in three months?
Well, if you add cayenne, you could cut that down to three days.

My Cat Won't Bark! (A Relationship Epiphany) is about seeing things as they are in our relationships. It’s stripping away any illusions we may have conjured up and removing unrealistic expectations. It is a primary and primal message of self-empowerment. Kevin Darné delivers the all-important message that we tend to forget: Life is a personal journey. Our lives are the result of decisions and choices we have made. Each of us chooses our own friends, lovers, and spouse. We have the ability to learn from our mistakes and make better choices for ourselves in the future. When we change, our circumstances change.
Darné attacks the well-established Changing Water into Wine Myth, Communication Myth, Relationship Work Myth, Unrealistic Romantic Myth, and Monogamy Myth. My Cat Won’t Bark!: reveals and defines The Three Basic Types of Cheaters, The Real Meaning of Commitment, The One: Separating Myth from Reality, The Six Common Mistakes Women Make with Online Dating, The Recipe for Relationship Happiness, Finding Your Own Way, and much, much more!
My Cat Won’t Bark! (A Relationship Epiphany) will forever change the way you view and choose your relationships.
ELIMINATE BACK PAIN PERMANENTLY WITH AUTHENTIC REIKI TECHNIQUES
Effective and Powerful Treatment for Chronic Back Pain Relief
20+ Years of Reiki Experience Laser Targeted On Healing Your Back Problems
Eliminate Back Pain Permanently with Authentic Reiki Techniques uncovers little-known, but highly effective ways to understand and permanently relieve back pain using the traditional Japanese art of Reiki. For thousands of years traditional healers from virtually every culture concerned themselves with blockages in the body's energy channels that were the cause of virtually all disease and that only by breaking through these energy blocks could pain and agony be relieved. This book discusses how to put an end to the unbearable suffering that an estimated 31 million Americans are experiencing at any given time to allow them to get back to enjoying life once again.
WHAT IS REIKI?
The book begins with a discussion on exactly "what Reiki is" by recounting its fascinating history: from its roots in Japan, to its westernization in America and then back to Japan again where it continues in its path of evolution. The book also discusses "what Reiki isn't" by dispelling and laying to rest popular myths about this little understood science.
UNDERSTANDING BACK PAIN
The next section is all about understanding the why's and wherefore's of back pain symptoms and starts off by dispelling some popular myths about back pain and continuing on with a careful examination of the anatomy and physiology of the back. This is followed by a discussion on the main causes and types of back problems, in order to better understand the intricate mechanisms behind any chronic or severe back pain being experienced. Knowledge is surely the first step towards a solution and through an understanding of this knowledge a cure begins to emerge.
REIKI FOR BACK PAIN
Following this examination of the symptoms of back pain are the actual back pain treatments, exercises and techniques themselves that are specifically designed to permanently rid the body of any and all forms of back pain if the techniques in the book are faithfully and consistently followed. The author concedes that "there is no magic cure" and that "readers should not expect miracles", but that with a modicum of effort, persistence and determination back pain can assuredly be a thing of the past.
FURTHER RESOURCES FOR BACK PAIN & REIKI
Eliminate Back Pain Permanently with Authentic Reiki Techniques concludes with suggestions for additional reading and provides helpful resources that can supplement the material within and reminds readers that modern medicine is a fairly new science and that there is a distinct possibility that the wisdom of the ancients, may be far superior and a return to which may actually be where modern medicine is ultimately leading us.
