TweetDaniel Haight is an emerging science fiction novelist with many published short stories. A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, he is equal parts ‘geek’ and ‘blue collar’ with a love for science fiction, emerging technology and working with his hands. Haight has been writing stories since he was 12, but began writing professionally after he ‘gave it a try’ and found that people enjoyed his work. As a single parent, he works as a lowly IT guy during the day and writes in his off-hours. Flotilla is an apocalyptic science-fiction story in which Jim, a slacker teen alcoholic is thrown into the ocean, literally and figuratively, to become both a survivor and a hero. He leaves rehab to start life aboard a floating city filled with strange and dangerous characters who work at farming edible fish and other enterprises. Jim sees this as an opportunity to re-connect with his estranged father, Rick, but he quickly finds out that second chances can come with strings attached. Daily adventures and brushes with death give Jim the chance to grow up and screw up. His new home serves as both the classroom and crucible he needs to put his past behind him. At the same time, the Colony is also a dangerous ecosystem. Drug-dealing, human trafficking and gambling create fortunes that people will lie, cheat and kill to protect. The tension explodes when a terrorist attack hits nearby Los Angeles. Jim and his sister are safe for the moment aboard the Colony but Rick is drafted and taken ashore. Now the kids are left helpless to deal with angry drug pirates and crooked cops. Will Jim be able save himself and his sister? Is doing the right thing always the right choice? This is a whirlwind adventure over two summers that paints a vivid picture of adventure and hardship. It is also a deeply moving look at the impact of sustainable technology on some hilariously dysfunctional, flawed characters.

 Episode-1215- Gary Collins on Primal Nutrition | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:38:05

TweetGary Collins, Creator of the Primal Power Plan Gary Collins, MS was born in Southern California and raised in the High Desert at the basin of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. He has been involved in organized sports, nutrition and fitness for over 30 years. A self-declared sports junkie, he participated and excelled in various organized sports since the age of seven. He is extremely passionate about the pursuit of optimal health in mind, body and soul. Collins has two goals: To make being healthy as simple and enjoyable as possible and to give people the truth. Collins’ background is very unique and brings a much-needed perspective to today’s fields of both health and nutrition. He holds an AS degree in Exercise Science, BS in Criminal Justice and a MS in Forensic Science. After an exciting career in military intelligence Collins worked for the U.S. State Department, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a Special Agent. His career took him around the world and gave him a unique perspective on not only how the United States, but the world is affected by our food, drug and healthcare policies. The highlights of his career took him from protecting some of the most powerful people in the world to investigations involving the biggest tainted pet food death case in the U.S. to the intricate dealings of one of the largest counterfeit prescription drug rings in the world. He has often said, “If Americans really knew what was going on in the area of healthcare and nutrition in this country, they would be appalled.” It can be safely said no one in the health and fitness industry has the inside knowledge and background that Collins has. He is a hybrid of a high intensity health expert and an investigator rolled into one. An author and college professor, Mr. Collins advises specialist and is a consultant for high-level organized sports programs and gyms. He is currently an exercise and nutrition consultant for the San Diego City College Men’s Basketball team, one of the most successful Junior College sports programs in California. Some of his other clients include college football players for high profile programs, to include Purdue and Kansas State University. In addition to his published articles and Primal Power Method Series, his total lifestyle reboot, Factor X: The Last Health Program You Will Ever Need, blows the lid off of conventional wellness expectations and is essential for every American seeking better health. Collins is a Master level personal trainer (only a few people in the world hold such a designation) with specialized training in fitness nutrition, exercise therapy, strength and conditioning, youth fitness, and senior fitness. He is a CrossFit member, a member of the International Sports Science Association, International Mountain Bicycling Association, Nutritional Therapy Association, National Association for Nutrition Professionals, IDEA Health and Fitness Association, and the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation.

 Episode-1214- Life After Awakening | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:11:33

TweetOnce you take the red pill, you can’t go back, ever. In the movie the Matrix the hero Neo is offered a choice by his mentor Morpheus, “This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.” The issue is, once you take that red pill and wake up into reality, you can never go back.  It is a fundamental change and the real horrors of the world along with the real beauty will forever be known to you.  While we are not in a world run by machines and used as batteries the metaphor of the movie is quite fitting. Valium – Is The Blue Pill We live in a world where the masses are the tools of the elite, the controls are taxes, debt, consumerism, marketing, leveraged jealously, class warfare and false dichotomy.  Once you see this, it is over, you can’t ever go back, just like Neo, take the red pill and you have made a permanent choice. Then you have something interesting to contend with, the people around you are popping blue pills daily.  Most people hear blue pill and think of viagra, though it wasn’t popular when the story was created.  The most famous blue pill at the time the matrix was written, was, Valium.  Think about that! Today We Discuss The Real Zombie Apocalypse, The One In Progress… What is a zombie – this will shock you Why it is a good thing to be awake Why you should talk to the sleeping but not evangelize too much Why some won’t wake up, ever, and why you must accept that The truth about “the machine” and why you much change yourself The biggest lies used to control you Taxes are necessary Debt is good, it is a status symbol Having more things will make you happy What your neighbor has or does effects you The problems are all because of people who are different than you The are two distinct sides and you have chosen the right one What to do about it Accept that the machine exists, exist as apart from it as you can Focus first on your life, your families life, let the zombies sleep Zombies wake up slow, use pull vs. push marketing Know that what you do matters and act Prepare for disaster and enjoy life at the same time Resources for today’s show… The Year 1214 Members Support Brigade MSB Insider Video Series Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear Ready Made Resources – (sponsor of the day) Bulk Ammo – (sponsor of the day) Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1212- All About Grills, Smokers and Outdoor Cooking | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:33:24

TweetSide Box Smokers are Extremely Flexible. Today is Monday and that usually means a listener feedback show.  Here is the deal though, I am in a great mood today and additionally off to a late start.  Monday shows take a while so I am moving it till Monday and frankly some of the stuff the clowns are doing this week, will ruin my mood.  So I thought why not a fun subject we have never covered before.  Grilling! The grill is really an incredible piece of daily living equipment and a great piece of prepper gear.  Grilling is actually one of the easiest and most efficient ways to cook, but a little bit of learned skill and a few tricks of the trade will give better results.  I would estimate I cook dinner on a grill or smoker 90% of the time, and I mean year round. Today I will be discussing mostly grills and side box style smokers with a few other options tossed in.  I will tell you what to look for quality wise, how to avoid expensive mistakes, where to never go cheap and how to get the most out of your equipment. Join Me Today As I Discuss… Why everyone should own and know how to use a grill Why I absolutely hate “all in one” style grills The gas grill, why it is so flexible and what to look for “Inferred gas grills”, no it isn’t just marketing, I am sold Why two smaller grills might be better than one big one The basic charcoal grill, more flexible than you might imagine Ceramic style grills like “the big green egg” etc. The Portable Kitchen Grill – great story, great grill Side box smokers, my favorite way to cook when I have time Tower style smokers Tips on cooking various things on various cookers Resources for today’s show… The Year 1212 The Early Fires of London Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Western Botanicals – (sponsor of the day) Harvest Eating – (sponsor of the day) Weber Kettle Grills Weber Performance Grill – This is the one with a propane lighting system for charcoal The Charbroil Grill I Own – Make sure to get cast iron tops!

 Episode-1210- Lessons in Homesteading by Taking a Big Step Backwards | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:14:53

TweetLast Year’s Abundance Won’t Be Repeated This Year Last year at this time, the wife and I were cutting up so many jalapenos that it took 3 days just to get them all ready for dehydration.  We had taken bag after bag of produce to the local church all summer long as the abundance was more than the two of us could us. Neighbors who had previously shook their heads in slight mockery at our initial set up now shook their heads in awe at an abundance none had ever seen.  Into a rocky, granite ridden ridge top we had done something no one ever thought could be done. Over 1,000 peppers in one harvest from 24 plants, yea we did that.  25 water melons from one 4×10 foot bed, did that too.  Trees rated to only zones 2-5 surviving in rock and granite in zone 7 with 100 degree days, yep, made it happen. Yet as most of you know my wife was happy and unhappy at the same time.  The place was wonderful and she loved it.  Yet the separation from her family was more then she wanted to deal with.  So we made a decision to come to Texas.  Today a new challenge is unfolding in front of us.  Lots of work has been done, the foundation is largely set for next year but this year, well, it has been tough.  Today is about what that has taught me. Join Me Today As I Discuss… From abundance to starting over, the hash reality is mostly psychological Why it is good for those who have done well to start over, it is called remembering The unique challenges of our property and what they are teaching us Less rain Less soil in some ways Damaged land is harder to work with Everything doesn’t work everywhere Animals are more work then I remember but more productive as well You often don’t know as much as you think you do The plans moving forward Get the food forest main frame established in Spring 2014 Urban garden design in Oct. primary implementation over 6 months 1500 gallon water catchment, done, expand by 1500 more Develop permanent fencing for paddock shift of livestock Develop large scale hugul systems on road frontage Begin classes with better planing on more than just permaculture Increase composting activities on all levels When abundance is reached, don’t forget the reset challenges In the mean time worry less about initial results Resources for today’s show… The Year 1210 Members Support Brigade 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TSP Mint TSP Gear Back Yard Food Production – (sponsor of the day) Fortress Defense Consultants – (sponsor of the day) Permaculture Voices – Conference I Will Be Speaking At The Earthworks Course – With Nick and Nick, now 900 dollars and available with a payment plan Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1208- Important Updates from Rob Gray at Mulligan Mint | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:07:47

TweetSentinel ParaDIMES are Available at TSPMint Today I am joined by my good friend Mr. Rob Gray of AOCS and Mulligan Mint. Today our discussion revolves around the future of TSP Silver Medallions and we have some very exciting news about that. As I said last week there would be news coming out about Mulligan Mint that some parties would spin as extremely negative.  Said news is that Mulligan has filed Chapter 11 reorganizational bankruptcy protection. This doesn’t mean they are out of business, this means they have set up protections under Federal Court so that they can continue operations and put a halt on some very unreasonable legal actions.  This move actually will allow for additional capital into the business along with some other advantages Rob will tell you about today. The key take aways are… Mulligan Mint is still “in business” and is still filling orders You can order with a credit card and get the consumer protections that go with that if you want to Mulligan Mint is currently shipping orders right now, every customer is being taken care of Mulligan is now in a much stronger position then they have been in for some time There will be counter claim actions soon, when you hear why it will shock you Rob has stood though this battle and hasn’t quit fighting and is ready for what comes next I will continue to fight this battle with my friend and hope many of you will as well Special Notice - I do want to make one point public here that I didn’t make on the air.  I have been accused by some people as “doing this for the money” and worse doing so “at the expense of my community”.  Such slander is baseless in the face of the honor I have shown but let me just state this fact. In August, I told my friend Rob, to “Not to worry about any commissions due to me at that time or any further commissions due to me until such time as he was able to close the current matters.  Further that if he were to lose this fight to insure that anyone from TSP that was owed anything from the mint was ahead of me in line at the end of the road, should that day come.” I will simply say, those of you who speak against my honor can be forgiven, because you clearly know not of what you speak. Any trolling or hateful comments by those that wish to simply lie and slander here shall be deleted.  That said any reasonable questions this interview created will be answered by Rob below as I have time to moderate them and as he has time to answer.
