The Walking Dead Season 5 - The Ready Center

Article submitted by Buck Ready @ The Ready Center

TWD5 00000Well, here it is…  After months of anticipation, excitement (and a great deal of frustration), AMC’s The Walking Dead returns to us tonight at 9pm (8pm Central Standard Time).  Tonight is the fist of sixteen episodes planned for season 5.  To be honest, I was pretty upset when I heard season 5 was only going to be 16 episodes!  I mean, does AMC really think that we the fans won’t be able to support an additional 4 episodes to round it off at an even twenty?!  (to tell AMC you want 20 episodes in season 6 click here)  After I calmed down from that self inflicted hysteria, I recalled how far The Walking Dead has actually come.  When season 1 first came out it was unheard of, unsupported, and was only a measly 6 episodes.  Fast forward to now and you have the most watched drama in basic cable history.  Why?  Three words – Basic Human Survival.

Yes, The Walking Dead has Read the rest of this entry »

Essential Oils for Disasters - The Ready Center

Article submitted by Shirley Ready @ The Ready Center

If you know my family, you know that we’ve become oily over the last year and a half. Did we strike black gold? Not so much… but I did find a key to keeping my family healthy for years to come.

It all started in April of 2013. The long story short is that I went from floored with a headache to no problems in 20 minutes without any OTC medications. As I did my research, I found that Young Living Essential Oils pure and of the highest quality. What was better to me is that I didn’t even have to worry about any side effects for me or the baby I was carrying.

Essential Oils Dropper - The Ready CenterWhen I brought the oils home, I obviously wanted to my husband to approve, but how would I explain why I chose Young Living and how they contributed to our family’s self-sufficiency? Then I found it. These oils don’t expire while the OTC and prescription medications do.  How is that possible? Because these oils are 100% pure, they kill off mold, bacteria, viruses and anything else that would threaten their shelf life. As long as they’re kept in a cool dark place, the molecular structure remains intact and Read the rest of this entry »

As a determined and committed prepper, part of the battle is keeping off the grid and out of the eye of the government. Granted with the way the world works these days this can be extremely difficult, but still doable to a certain extent. For example, utilizing smart phones (according to whistleblower Edward Snowden the government can tap into your mobile device(s) whenever they want) and owing money to lenders or debt collectors allows third parties to keep tabs on you and your actions and personal situation. By cutting these and similar ties, you can go anonymous in the world of information. Here are tips on how to do so. Read the rest of this entry »

After dealing with the onslaught of “Memorial Day” photos all over Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and the rest of the internet, it seems necessary that someone remind America what Memorial Day is really about.  And what it’s not about.

The Ready Center - Life Straw 2

Article submitted by Buck Ready @ The Ready Center

The recommendation that we make in the “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck” series are usually pretty broad.  We do our best to leave color, style, brand, etc. up for your choosing.  However this time we’re not going to do that.  Nothing about this recommendation can or should be left for interpretation, so let me make this crystal clear for you:  We want you to buy yourself a LifeStraw.

This is the one and only time during the “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck” series that we will deliberately tell you to go out and purchase a very specific brand of product.  This is not a sales gimmick for us.  The Ready Center is not “in bed” with LifeStraw or vice versa.  As a matter of fact, The Ready Center doesn’t even sell the LifeStraw.  The reason for this plainly stated recommendation is simple:  It’s an awesome Read the rest of this entry »

NBC Revolution Power is Everything - The Ready CenterOn May 9, 2014, bad news came to those of us who have come to appreciate the American Post-Apacalyptic television genre.  NBC announced that it would not  renew Revolution for a 3rd season.

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of viewing Revolution, it really is an outstanding show.  It came from the director of IronMan and was produced by J.J. Abrams (the guy who brought us LOST).

Revolution takes place 15 years after the start of a worldwide, permanent electrical-power blackout.  All electricity on Earth was suddenly disabled at a moment’s notice.  Trains and cars stopped where they were, ships went dead in the water, and aircraft fell from the sky and crashed.  No cell phones, no working gasoline pumps, no running water, no grocery stores full of products, and for many people, no hope.  People were forced to adapt to a world without electricity over the next fifteen years.  The story Read the rest of this entry »
