I have rewritten my book the DEADLY 21ST CENTURY. This book is aimed at families to help them to survive through the coming years.
In this book I outline a plan that will help any family to survive at any time but particularly in the troubled times that were facing. The greatest challenge that will face any family in the next 10 years will probably be food. You asked the question food, how can that be. This country has an abundance of food. All I have to do is go to the grocery store and buy. That may be true today, but it will not always be true.
Many of you will not remember the truckers strike in the 1980s. At that time we were living in Missoula Montana. Of all the places that you think you might live that would be one place not have a shortage of food. That would be one of the places that shouldn’t have a food shortage because people should be prepared there. If I recall correctly, that trucker strike only lasted a few days. In those few short days, the grocery store shelves were empty. I have a friend who delivers food from Salt Lake City through the heart of Wyoming and Montana. He states that,” The stores only have a 3 to 5 day supply of groceries.”
This book will help you to store food, to grow your own and how to stock up for the least amount of money.
Initiative 522 which was a method to require labeling of food stuff that is genetically engineered may have failed at the ballot box (The final answer is not in yet.). It did not fail as now most of the population is aware of the problem. This will be come an issue like the TV ad “Bad Drug:. As the statistics for the effects of GMO foods mount there will be law suit for sums that haven’t even been though of yet. I predict that the producers of these products will be sued for hundreds of billions of dollars.
I have a friend that operates a very large feed lot for cattle and he says that the cows feed modified corn are less heaths and do not gain weight as fast as those feed unmodified corn. He has changed to feeding wheat instead of corn. I believe that this is just a beginning. The other reason is that wheat costs less than corn to feed for the amount of weight gain. I guess we will be well advised to let the corn be used to make alcohol fuel and then be sure that the by products are not used as animal feed.
The best way to avoid GMO foods is to grow your own. You need to get a copy of the book DEADLY 21ST CENTURY. This book not only will help you to get your own food supply but also help you to manage your life to survive the DEADLY 21 ST CENTURY.
Those red potatoes that we planted yield about 600 pounds of nice red potatoes. They taste as good as they look. We were in the grocery store this evening and looked at the red potato prices. They were priced at $1.00 or more per pound and the organic were almost $2.00 a pound and ours are similar in growth to organic.
Bought Little Marvel peas to plant in the raised bed where the potatoes were harvested. I don’t know if I will get a fall crop as I have not tried to grow peas in the fall. We should have plenty of season left before a killing freeze. I will let you know how successful this was. Here is a free book that you might enjoy. It is about tomatoes and life.

I know that there are few out there that don’t think I garden. Well, yesterday I spent about 16 hours in the garden. I disk about an acre with my tractor, planted 8 60 foot rows of potatoes, 2 60 foot rows of beets, 2 60 foot rows of carrots, replanted the tomato plants that were killed by the wind and unusual weather, also 6 rows of sweet corn and planted 4 rows of squash and pumpkins. It was a good days work. I guess you are right I don’t garden, we have a small farm to produce food for three families.
This week we will plant about 1 1/2 acres of field corn for the animals for the next year. To me it is still gardening.
Have you planted your garden yet?
Yesterday I planted 93 tomato plants. The family wants to make tomato sauce this year. I have the rest of my raised beds ready for planting and one new one to construct yet.
Here is my next gardening project. I need to make this weed patch into a new raised bed.
We have also planted about 1/2 acre sweet corn and about 1/4 acre of peas. This has not been a good year for peas. I had to replant the peas and then the weather got hot. It has been in the 90 degree range here for over a week and that is not good weather for peas. We will see what happens in the end.
We are just about ready to plant 2 acres of feed corn for our project and animal feed. Will keep you posted on what is happening.
This is the latest effort of the EU to gain total control of the people. This was the stratagem used to gain control of Russia. Control the peoples ability to get food.
The link to the article is http://www.naturalnews.com/040214_seeds_European_Commission_registration.html. This is a trend that we don’t need. It is far more dangerous than the political ramifications as it can cause the gene pool of beneficial plants to be very limited and a small climatic change could drastically limit our ability to grow an adequate food supply.
It’s spring time and the picture above is a new raised bed for our blackberries. All of my raised beds are not framed and then filled in. This bed is about 75 feet long and 4 feet wide. It was dug down over a foot and filled back with soil, compost, weeds, and wood chips. This will give the plants a great space to grow in. It also provides great drainage. The manure that is mixed into the compost provide nutrition for the plants. I just finished another 75 foot bed for tomato plants.
This year we are growing our garden from open pollinated and or heirloom seeds. I feel that we are a point in time when we gardeners are going to have to collect our own seed. Besides I just don’t trust the hybrid stuff. I heard a rumor the other day at brown russet potatoes that are grown for the super markets now contain a genetically altered gene to produce an insecticide to kill the potato bug. With Obama signing a law to protect Ag-Business from a liability for genetically engineered plants that cause damage to the human population might make getting heirloom potato seed a must and saving your own. In addition the tubers probably will not sprout from the potatoes sold in the store. I planted 40 pounds of Red Potatoes that are of an heirloom variety. This should provide seed for next year and about 500 to 1000 lbs of potatoes for food. Yes they are in a raised bed.
Our first start of tomatoes and peppers are ready to be re potted. My Son-in-Law planted sweet banana peppers today, he thinks that sweet pepper won’t get spicy. If we get a hot early summer here in Eastern Washington, he will get a surprise.
I had some fresh asparagus from my garden the other day. It was really tasty fried up with potatoes, tomatoes, some onion and eggs. This was a really tasty skillet breakfast. I love making breakfasts like this but my wife thinks I am nuts.
Get your garden going. It is going to be a great year for gardens.
You need to read the post on Benton City Irrigation. This is what happens when Government agencies get out of hand. We the landowners and consumers lose. Read this post and follow the site for updates. Here is the link: http://www.bentoncityirrigation.com/what-do-retired-folks-do-when-the-irrigation-bill-comes/
If you are concerned please email the contact in that post.
I paid my irrigation bill today. When I retired in 2003 I did not expect or plan to have a water bill that was nearly as high as my taxes. Our water bill for this year is about $3400. My retirement budget does not include that much water money. Now Ed from BID told me that there was nothing that I could do about it and I had just better learn to live with it. Today a neighbor talked with a lady from the Finley area that had 40 acres of pressurized irrigation and her bill was $1300. I have heard the same story from the Roza Irrigation District and the Sunnyside Area. There is something wrong here. I am assembling a group and team to investigate to see if anything can be done. Since I spent 15 years as a program auditor and served as the point of contact for the law suit against DOE over the Hanford Fire of 2000 a large number of my neighbors have contacted me to do something with this problem I have decided to lead an investigation into this issue. If you have any input or would like to be on a video to describe your challenge with BID contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have established this web site for info and communications. It will be improved and added to on a continuous basis. I am in the process of setting up a Youtube Channel for our challenge.
I need your support.

Here is the vision that I promised to post. I don’t know if it is copy righted but so be it if it is. The credit goes to a web site called Prophecies.
15. George Washington ~
The vision received by George Washington in the winter of 1777 is one of the most fascinating of all American prophecies. Washington told his vision to Anthony Sherman, who recounted it to Wesley Bradshaw, publisher of the National Stripes:
“The last time I ever saw Anthony Sherman was on the 4th of July, 1859, in Independence Square. He was then 99 years old, and becoming very feeble. But though so old, his dimming eyes rekindled as he gazed upon Independence Hall, which he had come to visit once more.
“Let’s go into the hall”, he said. “I want to tell you of an incident in Washington’s life — one which no one alive knows of except myself; and if you live, you will before long see it verified. Mark the prediction; you will see it verified.
“From the beginning of the revolution we experienced all phases of fortune, now good and now ill, one time victorious and another conquered. The darkest period we had, I think, was when George Washington, after several reverses, retreated to Valley Forge, where he resolved to pass the winter of 1777.
“Ah, I have often seen tears coursing down our dear commander’s care-worn cheeks, as he would be conversing with a confidential officer about the condition of his poor soldiers. You have doubtless heard the story of Washington going to the thicket to pray. Well, it was not only true, but he used to pray in secret for aid and comfort. And God brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation.
“One day, I remember it well, the chilly winds whispered through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shone brightly. He noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual, and there seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance. After a preliminary conversation of about half an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone could command, said to the latter:
“I do not know whether it is owing to the anxiety of my mind, or what, but this afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something in the apartment seemed to disturb me. Looking up I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful being. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of the visit. A second, a third, and even a fourth time did I repeat the question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of the eyes.
“By this time I felt strange sensations spreading over me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to speak but my tongue had become useless, as if paralyzed. A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly, at my unknown visitor.
“Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed to fill with sensations, and grew luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor also becoming more airy, and yet more distinct to my eyes than before. I began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany death. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move. All alike were impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.
“Presently I heard a voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended an arm eastward.
“Now I beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. Before me lay, spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world — Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific. ‘Son of the Republic,’ said the mysterious voice as before, ‘Look and learn.’
“At that moment I beheld a dark shadowy being like an angel, standing or rather floating in mid-air between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left he cast some over Europe. Immediately a cloud arose from these countries and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it seemed stationary, and then it moved slowly westward until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.
“A second time the angel dipped from the ocean and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back into the ocean in whose heaving billows it sank as before.
“A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them. Again I heard the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh; look and learn.’
“And this time the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward. From Africa I saw an ill-omened spectre approach our land. It flitted slowly and heavily over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking, I saw a bright angel on whose brow rested a crown of light on which was traced the word ‘Union.’ He was bearing the American flag. He placed the flag between the divided nation and said, ‘Remember, ye are brethren.’
“Instantly, the inhabitants, casting down their weapons, became friends once more and united around the National Standard.
“Again I heard the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ At this the dark shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa.
“Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene. From each of these continents arose thick black clouds that were soon joined into one. And through this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men. These men, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America, which country was enveloped in the volume of the cloud. And I dimly saw the vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns and cities which I had seen springing up.
“As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I again heard the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ When this voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth and blew a long and fearful blast.
“Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word ‘Union’ and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh overcome but who immediately, taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.
“Again, amidst the fearful noise of the conflict I heard the mysterious voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious.
“Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice, ‘While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the union last.’ And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word, ‘Union,’ he placed it upon the standard while the people kneeling down said, ‘Amen.’
“The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappeared, and I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, ‘Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted. Three great perils will come upon the republic. The most fearful for her is the third. But the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the republic learn to live for God, his land and Union.’ With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown me the birth, the progress, and destiny of the United States.” (19)
The first peril foreseen by Washington was that of the War of Independence, the second danger was the Civil War, and the third will be a second revolution and civil war, complicated by the invasion of America by armies from Asia, Africa, and even Europe. The reference to “a light as of a thousand suns” suggests that nuclear weapons might be used to destroy the invaders.
