Fixin the little things is a page where I can share family and handyman information. Basically, this blog is all about me. Shameless self-promotion: of my family photos, of my services, of my writing, of my future, of my amazing ability to come up with clever ideas on photos of my life experiences . . . And also, a blatant visual aide when it comes to colors, spelling, formating, editing and computer stuff.

This time of year is a good time to think about winter or emergency survival. Last year I got my self supplies for a 72 hour kit and put them in a duffle bag in the hall closet. This year I saw this video on Youtube that reminded me of the 2 days I spent in a cold apartment in January when some knucklehead knocked the powerline down feeding our neighborhood. This heater idea would have been a nice fall back. But the big warning is not to use it while sleeping or in an air tight room or it will Kill you. 

If anyone is interested in the details of my 72 Hour kit, I will share them below:
