Get the MSB for 15 for Six Month or 30 Dollars a Year for Life!

I guess it is the early spring we have going on here in Texas but I feel like doing something cool for an MSB Sale and one I have not done before.

First the rules, this sale is for either new members or members with expired accounts.  Not because I not willing to let active members renew early with it, simply because the payment system I use won’t allow it.

That said existing members can use this sale and get its benefits if they pay by US Mail with the renewal/sign up form.  That is the best I can do on this.

Now the deal, first for those who have considered trying the MSB I want to get you to do so for six months.  So I am making a really great trial available.

Six months is normally 30 dollars but during this sale you can get a six month membership for only 15 bucks.  To get that great rate just join the MSB and use code try15 at sign up.

Next for those that know the value of the MSB and want a great lifetime rate, I have this sweet deal to offer.  Use code life30 and get exactly that, lock in a rate of 30 dollars a year for life!

Given the MSB sells ever day for 50 dollars that rate is a permanent discount of 40%!  Again that rate will apply to renewals and lock in for life.  Should PayPal cause some hiccup and cancel your renewals (it happens) you can just email me an I will honor the rate, again for life.

You can Join the MSB at the Members Page

Note if you are an existing member with an expired account, do not set up a new account, just login to your account here, and follow the instructions to renew an the discount codes will work for either a 6 month or 1 year term.

So in summary…

  • Select a six month term and use code try15 and get your first 6 months for 15 bucks
  • Select a 12 month term and use code life30 and get a rate of 30 dollars a year for life

This sale will run until Midnight Central Time, Monday the 15th of February.  And you know some folks just might consider an MSB membership a nice Valentine present.  Though you may want to check first!

If you have been considering the MSB now is a great time to join!

There are several benefits that are worth more than the entire first year cost alone. Such as…

  • A free LIFETIME Discount Membership to SafeCastle’s Discount club (value 49 dollars)
  • A free Premium Membership with Western Botanicals (value 50 dollars)

Remember Bob Wells Nursery was Gives 10% on All Trees and Plants to MSB Members

Winter is a great time to plant trees, bushes and many other perennials. And all MSB Members get 10% off all purchases from Bob Wells Nursery. That means with this one benefit alone a 300 dollar tree order alone would pay for the entire first year!

Episode-1728- Justin Carroll on Personal Privacy in a Mass Surveillance Age

Learn More at Paracentric.com

Learn More at Paracentric.com

Justin Carroll is a veteran of fifteen years in the service of the United States Government. He is a plank owner with the elite Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC), has worked on a contractual basis with another government agency, and has deployed to some of the world’s most dangerous and inhospitable places.

After completing his last overseas deployment Justin spent five years teaching digital security and identity management to hundreds of soldiers, sailors, and Marines of the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and was instrumental in the development of a highly technical surveillance program currently in use abroad by US Special Operations Forces.

Justin is the author of Your Ultimate Security Guide: Windows 7 and Your Ultimate Security Guide: iOS and is currently co-writing The Complete Privacy & Security Desk Reference. Justin resides just outside of Phoenix, Arizona.

According to Justin, the government surveillance apparatus that is now pointed at American citizens is incredibly alarming. Unfortunately they government is not the only or even the most pervasive collector of data about individuals in this day and age.

Your personal emails, phone, and VoIP conversations are eavesdropped upon, your purchases are recorded, your movements are tracked, your “credit worthiness” is bought and sold.  Your search history is compiled along with your FaceBook and Instagram pages.

All of this is used to create a profile about you that highlights your interests, sexual preferences, religion, income and education levels, and ultimately your level of compliance with an increasingly heavy-handed “system”. And it will never forget. Fortunately, you can opt out of almost all of this collection.

Episode-1727- Geoff Lawton on the Big Picture of Problems and Solutions

Geoff Lawton - Permaculture Artist

Geoff Lawton – Permaculture Artist

It is always and extreme pleasure to have Geoff Lawton on the show. Geoff is who I received my PDC certification from, he is also my biggest mentor. It is my firm belief that like attracts like. The common bond Geoff and I share isn’t really permaculture it is a fundamental desire to help others and to do so mostly by teaching.

Today I had planned to discuss a lot of technical questions with Geoff, how do you ____ etc.  But quickly we moved into a much more high level discussion.

How would Geoff design a solution for the entire state of California for drought proofing.  What is the 3rd ethic really all about, why should we not politicize it?

Why are live stock essential to repair the damage to our eco systems?  Why are humans necessary to repair the same damage?  Today we look at not our own individual survival but the survival of our ecosystems and way of life.

chinquapin_fruitingBob Wells Nursery “Plant Of The Week”
Chinquapin Nut Tree It is adaptable from zone 5 to zone 9.

The Chinquapin is a sub-species of the Chestnut family. It grows as a small tree or bush. Chinquapins are delicious eaten right out of the burr in the fall. Chinquapins have a single nut in the burr, unlike chestnuts that have nut divisions.

They are understory trees that grow in our native forests. However, heavy logging throughout the U.S has made finding native chinquapins harder than ever. The chinquapin tree is excellent for fresh eating, roasting, or for wildlife food.

Bob Wells specializes in edible landscape, including: Fruit Trees, Berry Plants, Nut Trees, as well as the hard to find Specialty Fruit Trees. Find this plant and more at BobWellsNursery.com

A Special Message from Steven Harris

Guys and Gals, Steven Harris has been hard at work and has put together another awesome info packed product.  He just sent me the following email to pass along to you.  As you guys know I take no affiliate commissions when I do something like this and only do it on rare occasions, when I am truly impressed by a product or a service.

 From Steven Harris – Dear TSP Audience.  I have 3 things I want to let you know that I have recently accomplished with a lot of hard work and a lot of love.  It was great fun making these videos.  I have 3 new videos I have just released and if you liked my Battery Bank Videos, I think you will love these.

I did a video on bug out bag items that you have never seen before.  84+ items.  Everyone has a youtube video on bug out bags and food for them and the rest, and it’s the same stuff over and over.  I wanted to show you things that I got from the local store, like Home Depot, that had multiple uses in a bug out bag.

Like using a mothball and a cotton ball as a fire starter and how to use different sawsall blade (by hand) for the fast cutting of wood or getting through a fence or a lock.  The video turned out to be 3.5 hours in length.  I have a 4 minute video on how to start a fire with mothballs and cotton balls and more info on the video at http://www.BugOUT1234.com   Of course I just had to make another 1234 site.  You guys know me.

When I was doing the bug out bag video I knew that I had to include a section on keeping your cell phone 100% charged in all situations but there were just so many aspects to this that I had a hard time putting it into the bug out bag video.  I finally decided to make this a separate video on its own and I took off running with this.

When I started I have 49 items to cover but I don’t know how many the final total is because I added a lot more items.  I cover about every method known to man (that really works) on how to keep your cell phone and tablet charged 100% of the time.  I cover this for the USA as well as 3rd world foreign countries and I cover how to do this in one of the worst places where your battery always goes dead; airports.

Good thing I made it a separate video because it turned out to be a jam packed 3 hours and 45 minutes.   The feedback and testimonials on the video have been outstanding.  I know you’ll enjoy it and you can read the testimonials and see a 20 minute sample of the video at http://www.CellPHONE1234.com

Oh…also.  I cover 2 different solar panels to power your cell phone. I have a small 21 watt folding panel and I have a 100 watt solar panel that I show you powering a 4 AA battery charger, 2 18650’s charger, 1 cell phone, 1 tablet, and two 20,000mah batteries (photo included).

The third thing I did was a lot of you guys told me you wanted a shorter version of the battery bank video.  So I made a cliffs notes version.  I cut through a lot of the decision making and just told you here, pick from these 3 batteries.  Then I show you how to do a home battery bank.  I decided to throw in the kitchen sink as well and show you how to power your house from your car with an inverter.

How to store fuel for your car by multiple different methods.  How to power your refrigerator and freezer from the car and inverter and yes <sigh>, how to make coffee from the same power source.   Plus, believe it or not, I have complete diagrams of how to hook up solar panels to charge your batteries. I cover hooking the panels in series which reduces your wire size and lets your have a much longer wire run with an MPPT solar charge controller and I cover the more traditional method with thick wire and a PWM charge controller.  The Storing and Generating Emergency Home Power Video can be found at http://www.Energy1234.com This video is 1 Hour and 53 Minutes verses the 4.5 hours for the full Battery Bank Video Series.

I know that a 3+ hour video might sound a little daunting.  What can Steve do for 3 hours and 45 minutes on cell phones and 3 hours 30 minutes on bug out bags?   Well there are that many details and it’s not boring either.  The videos are fast passed and move from subject to subject quickly.  One of my reviewers wrote to me and said, ”Watching a Steven Harris video is like smoking crack.  You just want more and more and next thing you know you’re hooked and time just flew by.”

As with anything there is 100% satisfaction guaranteed on all videos and just for the TSP audience I have a 30% off coupon.  Use coupon code TSP30 for 30% off.  The coupon is good until 11:59pm EST Sunday Feb 17th, 2016.

No one else is getting this steep of a discount but I feel like TSP people are family.  I could of not done this without you and I did it all for you.  I’m very grateful for all of your emails and questions that you write me daily.  It is one of the things that led me to make these videos.  As always, if you have a question for me, just email me directly or the expert panel via Jack.  I’m here for you.

Thank you
Steven Harris.

Episode-1722- Are You Prepared for Life

~~~~~~~

white scilence

It is a question I think many young people would have to honestly answer with no.  But middle agers, you folks ain’t off the hook here either.  Let us ponder that question today and ask what it would mean to actually be prepared for life and discover if we are even close to teaching our young people that today.

What does prepared for life mean, I think it would differ based on who you ask but here is what it basically means to me.  If you are prepared for life you can not just function but thrive no matter the conditions around you.  You can adapt, think on your feet and learn what ever you need to learn.  You can take risks and be okay with failure because you know how to mitigate risks.  That is a short summary, but it indeed is prepared for life.

Based on that definition we are not preparing our youth for life and have not been doing so for a long time.  This includes my own generation and prior.
