Why Is Everyone Talking About Berkey Water Filters?

The water molecule is one of the most versatile structures known. Water is absolutely essential for all forms of life. We experience this every day when we become thirsty. Why do we need so much water? Simply because our bodies consist of approximately 75% water. If we do not drink enough water we may dehydrate. When you dehydrate it means that you have lost more water from the cells that build your muscles, than has been replaced. That is a very dangerous situation, because irreversible damage may be done to your body, and if you lose too much water you will die. 

Well, not just loss of water is the concern in today's world but the amount of impurities and contamination in the water is cause of most of the deadly diseases. Viruses, bacteria, we have never heard of. Regardless of the types of emergencies you and your family may face, safe drinking water is a constant need and a major issue in emergency preparedness.

Spring, Snow or Storm?

A nor'easter gets its name from the continuously strong northeasterly winds blowing in from the ocean ahead of the storm and over the coastal areas. According to the National Weather Service it’s “a popular expression of a rapid intensification of a cyclone (low pressure) with surface pressure expected to fall by at least 24 millibars in 24 hours.

Being ready for a winter storm (or a nor’easter or even a “bomb cyclone”) is crucial. It’s the perennial same, stock up on the staples: salt for walkways and non-perishable food items, gasoline for your car. Make sure your shovels or snowblowers are in good working order.

Power shortages are the worst during these times, it is imperative to be backed up with essentials, if you can get your Generator at the earliest, we have a pick for you:

Be SPRING Ready!!

Well, spring is upon us, beautiful trees and budding flowers are not all that comes with Spring but it brings along Tornadoes. Time to brace ourselves and prepare ourselves..

Well, Tornadoes are strong currents of winds, strong enough to destroy any man-made structure and or trees. One cannot fight a tornado, just wait till it passes! Below you will find small tips and tricks to stay safe in such event:

  • Ensure you have a predecided spot that all family/friends are aware of  and this spot is accessible to everyone in the event of a tornado. 
  • If you are outside, ensure you get to a sturdy building and always stay in the lobby or the hallway if you are unable to get to the lowest floor in the building.
  • Emergency kits are the only friends you have in such situations as the debris and the impact of destruction may take a long time to normalcy. Ensure you have enough supplies to last you and your family a couple of days.
  • Know the difference!!
 Tornado Watch means when a Tornado is possible. Time to prepare yourselves with all essentials. Basic essentials like a flash-light, a whistle will go a long away. 

Tornado Warning means a tornado is already occurring or will occur soon. Time to go to your Safe Place immediately.

A medical kit will be the need of the hour for you and for others for the aftermath. Get your own medical kit here:

Be Ready, Stay Safe!!

Fight the Flu..


In this world of scientific developments and cures, our common flu remains the ‘most common’. Influenza, as we know it as Flu is a news wide-spread these days, this is a contagious viral disease, sometimes deadly if ignored.

We mistreat Flu and ignore it sometimes as common cold or a cough, it is an interesting fact that a flu is not always accompanied by fever. Well. it is contagious and deadly, so we better learn about how to prevent it and later discuss the cures…

Below are some of the symptoms, these symptoms start suddenly not gradually:

Fever* or feeling feverish/chills

  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigues
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in young children than in adults.
Flu unlike other diseases is spread either by tiny droplets by a contaminated person’s cough or sneeze, it could be because of direct contact or by you touching the tiny droplets of virus (of course unknowingly) and it spreading rapidly. Well, the best prevention, (below are some of my tips):

  • Stay away from people - not possible, you say!! I agree.. Avoid close contact with people who indicate symptoms of flu
  • Get your vaccinations- there are flu vaccination available for people aged 6 month and above.
  • Covering your face when sneezing or coughing and frequent hand washes will help.
  • If you diagnose a symptom that indicated flu, stay home and minimize contact with others.
  • There are antiviral drugs available for the flu (NOT antibiotics) that will shorten the period of the illness and help recover faster.

The road to recovery is longer than that of the sickness..

  • Always ensure you finish the course of any antiviral drugs prescribed.
  • Stay away from sick people.
  • Improve your dier, a body recovering from flu is mostly tired with usual muscle aches, a balanced diet and lots of fluid will help improve that.
  • Give your body the extra rest it needs (you have a reason)!

Initiation to Preparedness...

This is the era of technology prevailing over human-kind. We are technologically dependent in our day to day lives, be it your kitchen appliances or your high-tech computers without which we are handicapped. At the same time, we have managed to find equal number of ways to destroy ourselves as well.

This is an era where there are innumerable threats to mankind, there are natural disasters and then there are disasters that are man made. We live in times of political haphazard and the immediate threat to that is WARS. We’ve all heard about wars, some of us may have witnessed wars, most of us are prepared for wars. Nuclear war is the most ‘upgraded’ version in the war industry but have you thought about a chaos, when the world as you know, will go dark? Yes, just the way they show in the alien movies.

EMP (Electromagnetic pulse), this happens around us all the time. They occur naturally during a lightning strike and hence cause electrical disruptions nearby. Now imagine, a nuclear EMP,on a scale that can affect an entire continent and destroy all modern electronics on a colossal scale (kitchen gadgets, mobile phones, computers, CARS)! Well, imagine the movie ‘War of the Worlds’ only change will be no aliens and this will be ‘War between Countries’.

As simple as that sounds, prevention is better than cure, works perfectly here!! Start now but start slow..

Things to keep in mind:

Stock up on high Quality long-term storage food: ( Good news!! There are too many options for you to choose from, so take your time!!)

Water is the Elixir of life : That is true - nothing quenches your thirst better!!

The only remote thing (next to technology that would work in this situation is - BATTERIES!!!
Anything that runs on Battery or in this case nothing!

So take some time, think about this and check our website for long-term/short-term food/water and other emergency supplies!

Let's talk more about other tips and tricks for any natural/man-made disaster in my next blog.

Maiden voyage

I took this beast of a bike out after a quick and simple assembly session. I would say I am at the end of the spectrum when it comes to height/inseam. i'm 5' 6" with a 29" in seam and there is a narrow margin for error on this bad boy. We had a light dusting of snow on my first run and I scooted around my acre yard at a good pace. It takes me a wh
ile to get used to a bike after being off of one for many months and this was no different. I managed to spill it once and had a good laugh at myself. I am looking forward to some more time on it and I need to fine tune the shifting a bit but that is not uncommon on a regular bike. It is robustly made and looks like a beast. I noted there were a few scratches here and there while unpacking it but no bother. I look forward to getting some more time on it soon.
