Now, having been stuck with the library shtick, she has to go on working the stacks in the Harry Potter movies, while the kids who have since come of age nudge their parents. “Why is she doing that?” They whisper. “Why doesn’t she just Google it?” The scale of the transformation is such that an ever-expanding literature has emerged to censure or celebrate it.

The New Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator! Survival Seeds - Advice from an Avid Gardener, by Mrs. W. Friday, Nov 12, 2010 I have watched with some concern as the survival seed business has exploded these past few years. Advertisements abound for survival garden seed buckets that cost upwards of $100 and promise a years supply of food for a family. Since most Americans have never grown more than a few tomato plants they are unaware that many of these claims are overblown.

Anyone who has tried to produce most of their own food will tell you that things never go perfectly. There is always some blight, freak weather, or insect invasion that knocks out at least one of your main crops. And in a survival situation that could be deadly. Choosing your survival seeds is just as important as researching what guns to buy or stocking your year’s supply of food. First lets look at some of the problems with survival seed setups: Not designed for personal tastes: Many of the vegetables were not things my family will eat, although when starving who knows.
