Where has all the water gone...

I've heard lots of reports that certain companies are siphoning off water from major water sources and taking it in huge tanker type things to other places.  I hear reports regularly of Asian and African countries that have severe water shortages.  I hear reports often now that US states are having water shortages.

Today I read a blog that was very impressive on his sources for his water story.    Water is one of the big things I worry about having in the future.  So here is a report I'd love for you to go and read:  http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/20-signs-that-dust-bowl-conditions-will-soon-return-to-the-heartland-of-america

A home made solar cooker that really works!

I found a site today that has an incredible solar cooker that really works!  I love my Global Sun Oven but it costs a lot and if you are trying to get what you need for emergency supplies you have to think about those items that cost you hundreds of dollars! 


You can watch him use it and show you how to make it in his You tube video also!

I loved his tip on using the glass Pyrex with a bead of hot glue put down on one side to seal them together with the pot and thermometer inside of the Pyrex system!

I have the info from his page in a 4 page Open Office file and a 7 page PDF file with the template info.  If you would like those I can e-mail them to you if you let me know you need them!

You can make a lot of those emergency supply items but make sure you make them and try them out so you work out the bugs before the emergency!
