Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #202

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #202. Time is moving along quickly. The sense of urgency in preparedness seems to be taking hold at a higher pace now. Why did it take so long for citizens to notice something is wrong in our world today? We are quickly moving through February and soon March will be upon us and preparers will be germinating seeds and readying their gardens. I hope this includes you.

It was another great week for HFS. All HFS platforms continue to grow which means more people are catching on and wanting to get prepared. We are trying to help as many people as possible as fast as we can. Our calendar is filling up fast for March through July with multiple locations now scheduled in TN, KY, and NC. A couple of additional locations may be added soon as details are worked out for additional training opportunities.

Nico the guard dog is coming along great. He is a great protector of our home and barks just like I want him to do. Anything or anyone that comes on our property he warns us. Granted he has taken to Ms. Lucy more than to me, but that is fine also. I think he favors her because of the turkey and chicken broth she occasionally puts over his food. I had the opportunity to take him with me on a truck ride during the week and he never barked and seemed to enjoy the ride. Amazing how dump trucks pulled up beside us at red lights and he never reacted yet when at home he would be bouncing off the walls if the same truck stopped on the street in front of our house. Time will rectify this problem. He did attack a few more delivered packages this week.

I want to give a big shout out to our local friends at High Thyme Farmacy for their continued success and new listings on Amazon at : High Tyhme Farmacy as well as from their website at High Thyme FARMacy. I personally use their products daily (Lip balm, soap, and lotion bars of multiple types and scents) and love them. Check them out and give their products a try. They are wonderful people, and supporters of Hope for Survival.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support to Hope for Survival. We appreciate you much.

Ding, Ding, Ding....Attention HFS readers..... Opinions shared in this newsletter are just that, opinions, and nothing more. Read at your own risk. The owner and author of this site is not responsible for hurt feelings or thin-skinned readers. I do my best to show restraint and respect to the best extent possible. I take as many precautions as possible and try to remain as nonpolitical as possible, however, there are times when I just can't help but point certain things out. Occasionally I use words only Patriots recognize and understand. It's not personal against any non-Patriot. It's just the truth. Sometimes we must pull up our spenders and suck it up. Just saying. Stay the course, read what you want, and avoid the rest. Avoid fear porn as much as possible and the day will be okay. When all else fails… Keep the faith and always have Hope.

Let’s move along and get to some thoughts...
