“If God did not intend for us to eat animals, then why did he make them out of meat?” – John Cleese

On Friday I purchased a 800 grams of Beef topside from a Supermarket.  The Beef was marked down to $6 from $9 as it was a few days from the use-by date.  When I saw the beef I was immediately inspired to make some Biltong… something Jack Spirko has discussed many times in his Survival Read more about “If God did not intend for us to eat animals, then why did he make them out of meat?” – John Cleese[…]

“Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again.” Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

I seemed to eventually settle on a couple of solutions which appeared to work, one Read more about “Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again.” Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy[…]

“All of us every single year, we’re a different person. I don’t think we’re the same person all our lives.” – Steven Spielberg

Happy new year to you all. 2013 was a very eventful year at the Little Tassie Prepper household.  The year started as usual with gardening, tending to our animals and other tasks, yet the imminent threat of bushfire in February did much to show us that our preps were not sufficient to protect us from Read more about “All of us every single year, we’re a different person.
