Hey Med, I will buy one just tell me when the book comes out. An E-book won't do me much good when the electricity is out...LOL! I have candles to read a real book at night and the sun by day!

Looks like a great book I am excited for you!

As with many of us, with the loss of a dear person to me February 12, 2014 possibly to the flu, this was nealry a knockout blow to me and my ability to finish the book. Now, it would appear, as in 2008 when I predicted the last Pandemic, we indeed have one coming, "not if but when"

I am doing my best to get this up on Amazon/Kindle which would be the best medium by the end of this month. Even if it is only partilally finished, whatever I have is going up.

My thanks to the people in West Virginia, especially Dr. John Ray, who have given me information over the years, even on how to mine coal, to make stoves from water heaters, and from those in Arkansas who are some of the best survivors I have ever known. Many of my close friends are from the South and it is my thinking part of the core survivors will be in West Virginia over one of the largest coal veins and a power source which could power America.

This book is unique in that it starts with the collapse of the the power Grid and a Pandemic. When the Lights Go Out - is a main chapter.

For many living in big cities, there will be no garbage cans with food or even Walmarts with anything left on the shelves.

The Pandemic I predicted was only up to 30% ... nothing like the Ebola numbers.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and this book should provide data that a twelve-year-old child can use to take care of a family with no parents.

Thank you to all my family on AFT. You have been such for better or worse,  when at times I had no other. You are a gift to the world and down the line, what you have posted and shared may save millions of lives.

My prayers and love to all.

Voicing concern over the latest Ebola outbreak, Tom Frieden, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has said that the situation could get worse and called for quicker international help and cooperation to control the spread.

"The world has never seen an outbreak of Ebola like this. Consequently, not only are the numbers large, but we know there are many more cases than has been diagnosed and reported," said Dr Frieden, after visiting some of the Ebola-ravaged parts of West Africa, reports BBC.

Dr Frieden met Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to discuss ways to fight the disease.

He said there was a need for "urgent action" and called on Liberians "to come together" to stop misconceptions that have helped the outbreak spread.

The medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has called the international response "entirely inadequate".

When the Lights Go Out

 

 

 

 The American people and many other first world nations, as opposed to third world countries, who struggle to survive, have grown soft. In the last hundred and fifty years, and perhaps a little further back, let’s say, when America declared independence, the growth of technology and conveniences in the United States, were not that much different from much of those available to the ancient Egyptians. There may have been levers, and pulleys, and ropes, but there were few switches or buttons to push. The catastrophic reality of a Pandemic, or any serious natural or unnatural disaster will become real when someone flicks a light switch and despite changing the bulb, no light comes on.

 

That light may not come on for some time. Considering the fact that the energy reserves we are supposed to have in the United States and those which we do have are at an all time low, in some areas as little as three days when they should be three weeks, shortens our lifeline of power considerably. This is not generally a media worthy item, or even one that is really a high priority to the majority of the general public. However, it will be a number one priority for everyone when the series of critical events leads to a Pandemic, people stay home, and eventually the grid kicks off and there is no power. What happens in the next few minutes will r change from mild annoyance, to serious panicking.

 

Or the lights may go out suddenly with no warning, producing the initial feeling of- “I wonder how long this is going to be?” After several hours of no power and the phones dead and no idea of how long it will be, this may turn from mild annoyance to serious anxiety.  It could be a month. It could be a year. A quick trip to the bathroom and a twist of the knob in the sink, will deepen the anxiety as no water comes out. And finally as one either rushes to their phone to call someone and  find out what is happening and there is no dial tone or no signal on the cell phone, the initial phase of isolation will hit.  Our network arteries, power, communication, gas, water,  which connect us to civilization for both business and personal use will be severed. Of course those with desktops will already feel the growing ominous feeling of approaching unhappiness when the computer become simply a scrap of metal, chips, and parts, with no useful function. The more sophisticated laptop crowd, and those even with roaming wireless, will feel the deep and sad withdrawal of someone coming off of heroin – the global network will be – dead.
