Hi Carson Ward Family, Family and Friends,

Why not be prepared?

Why not have extra food on hand?
Why not have extra drinking water on hand?
Why not have a 72 Hour Emergency Kit for each family member?
Why not have emergency medical supplies on hand?
Why not have a way to provide shelter for your family?
Why not have a way to have light if there is no electricity?
Why not have a way to cook if you cannot use your stove?
Why not have a family evacuation plan?
Why not have a home fire plan?
Why not be ready for an earthquake?
Why not have an out of state contact person?
Why not protect you and your family?
Why not feel peace at a time of turmoil?

WHY NOT??? "If ye are prepared, ye have no need to fear."  (Doctrine and Covenants 38:30)

June Goals---Shelter and Adding Pastas and Tomatoes to your Food Storage: (Next week we start our July Goals!)

Weekly Assignment--Shelter:
1) You should know the closest emergency shelters near your home and work place.
2) If there is an emergency situation and you can stay in your home, you need to know how and where to shut off the main gas, water and electricity of your home if instructed by the local leaders, or if you feel it is necessary. Remember, only shut off your gas if you smell gas, it takes days, and possibly weeks, to get it turned back on by the gas company, do not attempt to turn back on by yourself.
3) Know what your Homeowners, Homeowner-Condo or Renters Insurance policy will cover if you have to leave your home due to damages. Most California Insurance companies will allow you to stay in a home that is comparable to your current living condition for up to 24 months, or until damages are fixed. Check with your insurance company or your policy booklet for this information.

Weekly Assignment--Adding Pastas and Tomatoes to your Food Storage: 

1) Continue to add pastas and different types of tomatoes, tomato sauces and soups to your Food Storage. See all the previous June postings for the June Goal ideas.

Food Storage Idea:

What can you do with all those lemons on your lemon tree or when you find a great sale? "Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste? Simply place the whole lemon in the freezer in plastic freezer zip lock bags. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle in on top of your foods. All the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore. Now that you've learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.

The surprising benefits of lemon! Lemon peels contain as much as 5-10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product which kills cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and as an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufactures in the world." (
Emergency Preparedness Idea:

Dutch Ovens--a must for emergency cooking equipment. Our ancestors used Dutch Ovens to cook in. You can cook just about anything in one of them. Get a good cooking booking on cooking with a Dutch Ovens. You can even bake a Cherry Upside Down Cake in them. You just put hot charcoal briquettes on the bottom and the top of the lid and let it cook. They can run from $25 -$80, depending on the size and type. I spent $25 for ours on sale at Majors Surplus Survival in Gardena. Check around for sales.
