Status update

Sorry Kids, Santa will be on vacation in the Philippines for Christmas this year.  Actually, I have a little bit of a surprise planned.  It's been several months since I've last seen my wife.  Well, after the Typhoon, I've been quite anxious to get back to her.  See, she thinks I'm coming on January 1st, but little does she know I will be arriving December 9th (the same day this newsletter will go out) in my Santa suit.

Now she's heard me talk often about wanting to come dressed as Santa to pass out gifts and candy to all of the kids in her neighborhood. It's something I've really wanted to do for awhile because most of the kids have never seen Santa live in person before. Even though all of the kids know who Santa is, they've never been able to afford to go to the big city to see him. 

Well, this year, Santa will be making a special trip to their village.  What's more, when the bell starts ringing and the kids come rushing out to see, she will know who it is (because I've told her that's what I've always wanted to do), but she'll have to restrain herself in order to not giveaway the secret of who Santa  Then Santa will go give her a big hug and let her know that her husband will be spending Christmas with her.  No one knows of this secret except her aunt and uncle, and the driver who's picking me up.   I will post the video

Enjoy this weeks newsletter! Stay Safe Everyone,

From The APN Proper Preparation: Going home during Civil Unrest
By Will Hill
Suppose you work 30 miles away from where you live. Here is what to do in order to get back home if your main plan is to defend your home during civil unrest. Read More... Influenza, Part 2: Immunity
By Doc Bones To lower the risk of contracting infectious disease, it pays to understand the concept of "immunity".  Immunity refers to the ability of an individual to resist a particular infection or toxin by the action of its immune system.  This can refer to resistance of an entire species (humans, for example, don't get fin rot) or the resistance of a particular individual to an illness (Typhoid Mary, for example). Read More... How To Successfully Grow Potatoes In Tires By Troy Brooks
Here's a question that I get from potato lovers: "How can I grow potatoes in abundance in limited space?" Growing potatoes in tires can be quite simple and here are my instructions how to do it and have a bumper crop. You get a chance to do some recycling and vertical gardening all together.
How to Easily Peel Farm Fresh Hard Boiled Eggs
By Stephanie Dayle
Ever boiled up some eggs for a dish only to discover that you can't peel them without destroying the egg? Then looked online to see an endless variety of experiments that range from trying to change the pH of the egg to poking little holes in them? Nonsense. Here are two time tested methods to easily peel hard boiled homegrown eggs, Read More...
Want your articles published on the APN?  Email us at [address removed] Rethinking Tornado Preparedness
By Ben Vaughn
With the recent scourge of late fall tornadoes across the Mid-western United States, its worth thinking about tornado preparedness. For those who live in the Midwest, tornadoes are a well understood risk and most people maintain good preparedness, if not a healthy awareness of the threat.  Read More... Protect Your Family With an Emergency Preparedness Kit By The Safety Company
Disaster can strike at any given time, without prior notice. Recently, a wave of tornadoes swept through the Midwest, killing 6 and injuring several dozen more. And most of you probably remember the super typhoon Haiyan that brought 200+ mph winds along a 20-foot wall of seawater crashing through the Philippines. Read More... Recent Popular Forum Topics
