I can’t get my news from Yahoo.com anymore. Can. Not. Do. It.

I don’t care about Lindsey Lohan’s panties. I do not want to read about Kanye West’s latest escapade. I want to learn. I want to be inspired.

A couple months ago I started checking out the news on the Christian Science Monitor. Informative, engaging, intelligent, panty free. I stumbled across a great article there today, about a family who is living “off the grid” and have managed to do it in style.

Survival, Mama-style is not about how to eat a twig. It’s about being prepared and finding a way to survive with comfort and food and a first aid kit.

Mamas can make fires with sticks and flint, but we can also make a list.

Gasoline? Check.
Firewood? Check.
Bandaids? Check.
Clean Underwear? Check.
Food? Check.

Go, Mama, Go.
