The thing has landed in the holler. Years ago I did a show on how we handle illness in the Holler when Norovirus swept through my house over Thanksgiving. Today, I will share the updated approach in a post THE THING world.

Spring Workshop Tickets are on sale. Get them here.

Tales from the Prepper Pantry

  • Ran out of beef
  • The Empty Jar Problem
  • Still have not restocked - not in a hurry
  • Lamb Rib Recipe

Operation Independence

  • Tajmaholler Update

Main topic of the Show: How We Address Illness in the Holler

The Holler Neighbors are what I call an unintentional intentional community. (What that means and a bit about how we came to be).

Story of Thanksgiving.

  • Identify that someone is sick
  • Communicate to all
  • Learn about what they have and what care
  • Make a plan to cover chores (Nick Ferguson’s dead tree story)
  • Communicate
  • Establish the isolation or quarantine place (bathroom sharing, etc)
  • Communications
  • Jenni’s Care Packages
  • Med kit lessons learned: number of thermometers, pain killers, nebulizer
  • Keeping everyone else strong/community/nutrition

 

What we are doing for the covid outbreak and how the neighbors are doing - a word on media hype.

How this is different from other contagious illnesses.

Today, we talk with Erin Edwards and Alex Martin from Flote.app about the importance of decentralized social media and freedom of speech. They will also share some up and coming things about Flote.  Reminder: Show Resources

Flote Social Network: Flote.app

Main content of the show

Freedom of speech is important because if we do not discuss all of our ideas and  learn from one another, we never progress. Further, it is immoral to force silence on another person simply because they say things you do not like. Over the past decade, the social media giants have slowly shown that they have no regard for individual rights and have used their large reach to control the social narrative. They silence, bully and erase people after those people have invested time and resources to build followings and businesses using the tools that the big social media giants provide.

Erin and Kinglsey Edwards have been fed up with this for a long time. Rather than sit around and complain about it, they launched flote.app, a social network platform that is moving toward decentralized system and encourages freedom of speech. If you set up an account there and say something that Kinglsey does not agree with, you will not be “cancelled’. Instead, people who do not agree with you will discuss it with you. Or not. Their choice.

And it is all about choice.This is a previously recorded interview with Erin Edwards and Alex Martin of flote about the importance of free speech, decentralized technology and so much more.

Welcome to Living Free in Tennessee.

Today, I discuss what to do when you have an enemy. What an enemy is. And wether or not you can be successful if you do NOT have an an enemy.

Live this week!

Stump the Sauce
From John: Is it wise to start a business that depends on supply chains?

Main topic of the Show:  What to do when you have an enemy?

What is an enemy?

  • eResources example
  • Food Forest Farms example 
  • Liberty Movement Infighting Example
  • Sour grapes online/death threats, etc

What do you do when you get one?

  • Verify that they are the enemy 
  • Who is actually the problem?
  • Is their criticism valid?
  • Demolish vs Denature vs Ignore vs Coexist
  • Community protection

What if they simply will not go away?

  • Decide which sandbox you wish to be in
  • Sometimes you just gotta punch them in the face

e run across people who are envious of what we can do or of what we have. They want to control things that are none of their business. There are people who think that in order to get ahead, they must destroy those who they perceive as ahead of them. We encounter people with low self esteem. And yes, some people are simply evil.

The best revenge is to cut their balls off. Remove their power over you. Rarely is this not possible, and when it isnt, it is time to fight. But when it is, there is satisfaction for years and you end up on the moral high ground.

The definition of enemy is a person who is actively opposed or hostile to someone or something. So I guess the only enemy I have is the state. As far as individuals I think it might be possible to have no enemies. Because in the definition it says "actively oppossed or hostile". This is a very hard question though. I'm going to say it might be impossible to not have enemies because there will always be someone or some group of people that oppose you or your beliefs.

I have one enemy. My own assumptions. Everyone else, I try very hard to meet where they are or avoid them so they don't become enemies. I think back to all I used to believe and how much energy I threw into the various abysses we're told are important and wonder what else I'm throwing energy into that serves nothing.

About 5 years ago my grandfather and I were having a rare talk about his life and the choices he'd made. His life advice to me was a rally cry. With a fist raised in the air and a sly grin he shouted, "MAKE SOME ENEMIES!" 😄 My grandfather is fairly stoic so this was pretty memorable.

I've been thinking more about that lately. He and I are on different sides of the political spectrum so I know he didn't mean people who think the opposite of me are my enemies. Or people who disagree with me.

My understanding of his advice as it relates to me was more, "Stand up and make noise sometimes. It's not a bad thing to have people oppose you." Opposition can refine one's stance and clarify one's beliefs. In that sense, I find "making enemies" useful.

I'm still actively ruminating on the concept.

Today is the first episode of 2022 and we will talk about building habits - because habits will get you where you want to go much faster than the fits and starts approach of resolutions.

Tales from the Prepper Pantry

  • Resupply month (Not much needed)
  • CO2 shortage strikes!
  • Leg of Lamb
  • Venison Roast
  • Kratky Lettuce
  • Starting sprouts
  • Spring Garden Planning time

Operation Independence

Main topic of the Show: Habits Not Resolutions

It is early January, that time when gyms are most full.

  • Resolutions fail
  • Habits endure

Now is a great time to establish new habits.

What I mean by habit 

How to get started

  1. Big picture goals (Health, wealth, relationships, etc)
  2. Processes and systems really work (Habits support this)
  3. Identify the habits that must change
    1. Weightloss (Diet as a habit, activity as a habit)
    2. Have more money (Earning as a habit, saving as a habit, frugality as a habit)
    3. Stronger Network (Fostering relationships as a habit, fostering responsiveness as a habit )
  4. Choose ONE.
  5. Make real change for a month
  6. Assess

Things that you make space for will happen. Today is the first work day of the new year. 

Make it a great week!
