Reader Suggests Cayenne Pepper In Shoes For Winter Survival


Editor’s note: Read the story referenced here.

One thing that my wife and I carry [in our car] is insulated coveralls. Putting them on over your clothes will help keep your body heat in. Pocket warmers are also great as you can put them inside your coat and they will keep your heart warm, thereby warming your blood as it runs through it. Cayenne pepper in your shoes can deliver a warmth to your feet, also keeping your blood warm. Winter boots for just in case you have to walk. You do not need real expensive ones, even rubber galoshes will keep your feet dry and create an air space between the cold and you. I have worked outside and lived in the woods most of my adult life and the one thing to remember is to stay as warm as possible. I also carry candles, and when stuck somewhere have used them to stay warm. We carry a plastic tub w/ lid in the backseat with all of our gear and a cooler with food and water. The cooler will keep your water from freezing if left in the car. Stay prepared my friends.

Cold frames are great because they aren’t as expensive as greenhouses, but they allow for earlier sprouting in cold climates. I absolutely love my cold frames.

NO, children should NOT be taken from their parents for allegations of improperly administered medicine, not without concrete proof. If the dosage is too low, instruct the parents how to administer more, or if it needs to be changed, instruct the parents. Parents are not stupid, but they do need to learn how to care for a child with special needs. They need support from the medical team, not harassment or punishment.



  1. Wow, I love your website…so much info!! Is there anyway I can get a hard copy like a magazine or a book. I don’t believe we will always have the internet. And I love the written word anyway. I may have missed it but I dont see anything like that available. Do you put out a monthly newspaper or magazine or do you have any books on your topics? Thanks, Teresa

  2. Greetings; I have a quick question and if you don’t have an answer for me maybe you can suggest where I can find the answer? I am wanting to buy a gas range (and convert to propane) it doesn’t need to be fancy or the most basic, just looking for one that would work, off grid with electronic ignition (battery) or manual. I have tried to research it but still haven’t found the right one and my wife is a little nervous about LP so I will probably buy new instead of used. Thanks for considering my request; Gene

  3. @Gene – you made mention of battery-operated electronic ignition. Makes a lot of sense. We have a gas stove with electronic ignition and cannot light the oven with a match when the electricity is out. I would prefer a non-electric gas stove as ours has a minicomputer in it for ignition, temperature-control, the timer and a clock that sucks juice 24-7. I can do without the clock as we have one in our microwave, TV, phone and on the wall. We have other timers too both battery I operated and a primitive wind-up.
    What I’m getting at is that without electricity Big Brother can make us miserable. And recently a globalist CEO of Nestle stated. “Water should not be free.”

    • Most places that sell propane sell stoves, fridges, lights and heaters. Not all of them have electronic ignition but the fancier you get they do. We bought a small four burner for our shop when we were building our house and will keep it for the just in case day. In has a pilot light but if it were a survival situation we would shut that down after each use. Stay prepared my friends!

  4. I love this site . one of the best on the web.keep up the good work. god bless america

  5. There are certainly plenty of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a great level to bring up. I supply the thoughts above as common inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you convey up the place a very powerful factor will likely be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, however I’m positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Each girls and boys feel the influence of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
