Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,
I'd like to thank Uncle, over at Say Uncle, for a link on his blog about pistol-caliber carbines. The article gives a good overview of some of the issues, you need to think about, with these weapons.
Even after reading the article, I still say the SKS is the best rifle for the suburban/urban prepper on a budget.

In my survival bookmarks, I have a few "weekly" reads. These are sites I read once a week. Ol' Remus at Yer Ol' Woodpile Report is one of those reads.
Even though I don't agree with Ol' Remus politics some of the times, he has a lot of information on his blog that I find informative. I especially like the pictures from the "It's Just the Way It Was" section of his blog.
The current issue, #206, has a few pictures and links about small cooking stoves, his commo (communications) gear, and fire using P.A.C.E.
The #205 has a good article explaining some of the other types of Bug-Out-Bags (BOBs) with pictures.

Angela, from Food Storage and Survival, has a post on sprouting wheat. If you store wheat in cans/buckets with oxygen absorbers, you need to read this article. Plus, you might want to make a note in/print the article for your survival bible.

This article from Sharon Astyk writing at The Chatelaine's Keys has a post by her and a link to another site about food storage for newbies.
It looks like something you could e-mail to friends and family. Plus, a good review for those folks that have been prepping for a little while, too.

The last item is something me and the brothers were talking about this weekend. My Brothers have been having folks, at work, come up to them and ask about prepping. They're known as preppers. (Poor OPSEC) We talked about it for a couple of hours and we came to some conclusions.
You'll have to come back on Friday to read about those conclusions.
Yeah, I know, a shameless way to plug another article. Plus, I'm sleepy; time for me to go to bed.
Right now, it looks like I am going to have to re-shoot the "Rigging Your Gear: LBE" photos. Some how, the photos were lost during the transfer from camera to computer.
