Hello, I am A 50 Something, Prepper ;-}; former 60's Flower Child, don't believe in taxpayer subsidized special interest groups (political parties), DO believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights (1st 10). Long time Independent & Informed Voter. Lover of the outdoors and firm believer that History Teaches - if only we will listen!

(No longer Urban or in NM. Now Rural in the mountains of Maine.)

This blog was started at the request of some dear friends that wish to become Preppers.

St. Patrick’s Day Blessings - Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig!

St. Patrick’s Day Blessings - Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig!
(Ban-ick-tee na fay-lah pwad-rig)

Every year on March 17, thousands, if not millions, will become Irish for the day and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with gatherings, parades, parties, food and drink.

Read on for the real St. Patrick and other fun facts on this day @

"May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning and night."

Be Prepared, have a Designated Driver
