a "been-there" mom of six offers encouragement
to wives, young mothers, and those not so young,
and simple common-sense approaches to
the "ings" of life:
child-rearing (hints and helps), homemaking (all areas),
cooking (simple, cheap, and do-it-yourself)
making (toys and gifts), preparing (for the unexpected),
maintaining (sanity and peace in this increasingly crazy world) and more---
all aspects of making the most of making do on little---
and having fun in the process.

Why are Realists Called Alarmists?

Some of these photos are from happenings from this past week!  
Most within the past 12 months!
Two from 12 years ago.

Some global -----  Others Local ----  Many Personal

Most caused by Nature's  unrest ---- 
Some by Mob unrest . . .
Others by Individual unrest 

WPTV Arizona highway cracked

NJ gas lines

National emergencies and local emergencies . . .
that affect many
     that affect some
           that affect one

that might personally affect YOU and your family!

Canadian freight train derails
Protests Spread Across Middle East

There are personal emergencies 
Millions losing jobs. . . 
Hundreds lining up for a limited number 
of available jobs

cfa ER appointments

Then there is the one that changed most everyone in one way or another

Emergencies, or in many cases even the prediction of  potential situations, often result in . . .

What if the emergency was one that, while causing no structural or physical damage anywhere, left us without the ability to do little-if-anything anywhere?  Think how a widespread or worldwide power outage would render the "computerized" world helpless!

WHAT IF . . . ?

Most of us have car insurance, home insurance and medical insurance "just in case." 

Life insurance provides for our loved ones after we die.

How much better to have insurance to help us and our loved ones endure any emergency we may encounter.

Does simply being prepared make us a realist   or an alarmist?
