I’m Back

Sorry for the lack of new material on Survival And Prosperity lately, but a number of other matters required my attention since before the holidays and right on through that period. That being said, to quote Arnold Schwarzenegger:


YouTube Video

And not a moment too soon it seems, judging by growing uncertainty surrounding the financial markets/system.

In conjunction with working hard to finally launch my carefully-crafted research business in 2016 (unless someone throws an obscene amount of money my way to mine that specialized asset protection knowledge I’ve acquired), I’ve been spending a lot of time developing my Offshore Safe Deposit Boxes blog and Offshore Private Vaults website lately.

I’ve published quite a few posts on that blog recently that may interest readers of Survival And Prosperity. “Related Reading: Banks Will Raid Safe Deposit Boxes” and “Government, Bank Wealth Confiscation Activity List Updated” come to mind here.

Going forward with this 5-year-old-plus weblog:

• New material will still be published only from Monday thru Friday (holidays excluded, and unless there’s something I think readers should know right away)
• Each day will still begin with an “SP Intel Report” (if it’s warranted), where I’ll be focusing on current events locally (Chicagoland area), nationwide, and overseas which I think readers should be aware of
• Those different series of posts I’ve run since late November 2010 will be returning on a regular basis once I get back into the swing of things. This includes:

Monday- Quote For the Week
Tuesday- Signs Of The Time
Wednesday- Project Prepper
Thursday- In Print (or On TV when I don’t have a book review ready yet)
Friday- Resource Of The Week

• Mondays will also feature the latest investment activities/recommendations of the “crash prophets”- Marc Faber, Jeremy Grantham, Jim Rogers, and Peter Schiff. If anything newsworthy concerning the “prophets” emerges during the work week, I might not choose to wait until Monday to blog about it.
• Other material related to the focus of this blog- economics, finance, investing, personal/public safety, emergency preparedness- will still be published throughout the week as well.

That’s it for now. I apologize once again for the longer-than-expected hiatus (did readers at least enjoy those Quotes For The Week?). As much as I’d like to see America on the path to an authentic economic recovery, I suspect the “times” may become even more “uncertain” in 2016- if not downright gnarly. Rest assured Survival And Prosperity will be along for the ride, still focusing on matters related to “protecting and growing self and wealth.”

Computer Crash Means ‘Big Changes,’ New Posts Delayed Until October 26

Remember those “big changes” for Survival And Prosperity I blogged about last week? They were supposed to be implemented today. However, my laptop “crashed” around lunchtime Monday and I’ve been busy ever since trying to repair the hobbled machine. I’m going to need a couple of days to completely fix the problem. Therefore, those changes- along with any new posts- will be delayed until next Monday, October 26, when I should be up and running at 100 percent again.

Thank you for your patience with this matter.

Have a great week,

Big Changes At Survival And Prosperity Starting October 19

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”

-Winston Churchill (British politician and Prime Minister. 1874-1965)

Starting next Monday, October 19, significant changes will be made to Survival And Prosperity. This includes:

• New posts will now be published only from Monday thru Friday (unless there’s something I think readers should know right away)

• Each day will begin with an “SP Intel Report” (if it’s warranted), where I’ll be focusing on current events locally (Chicagoland area), nationwide, and overseas which I think readers should be aware of

• Those different series of posts I’ve run since late November 2010 are returning on a regular basis. This includes:

Monday- Quote For the Week
Tuesday- Signs Of The Time
Wednesday- Project Prepper
Thursday- In Print (or On TV when I don’t have a book review ready yet)
Friday- Resource Of The Week

• Mondays will also feature the latest investment activities/recommendations of the “crash prophets”- Marc Faber, Jeremy Grantham, Jim Rogers, and Peter Schiff. If anything newsworthy concerning the “prophets” emerges during the work week, I might not choose to wait until Monday to blog about it.

• Other material related to the focus of this blog- finance/investing, personal safety, and emergency preparedness/survival- will still be published throughout the week as well.

That’s it for now. No new posts the rest of this week as I work on the rollout for Monday.

Of course, while I’m implementing these changes over the next several days, feel free to drop me a line via the “Contact” page with any suggestions you may have for making the blog better.

On a side note, I know I owe a number of people who’ve contacted me recently responses. I apologize for the delay getting back to you- a large amount of time spent blogging and charging ahead on other projects (business rollout), getting the suburban “homestead” up to speed, and family-related elder care has made it difficult to keep on top of e-mail lately. Regardless, I’ll be working hard on replying to communications in the coming days.

Thank you for your patience and your visits to Survival And Prosperity. I am grateful as always.

Gone Blogging (About Greek Bank Safe Deposit Boxes)

Sorry about the lack of material on Survival And Prosperity this week. With the most recent flare-up of Greece’s sovereign debt crisis, I’ve been busy blogging about reports that access to cash in Greek bank safe deposit boxes has been prohibited. You can read all about it over on Offshore Safe Deposit Boxes.

New material is scheduled to be published on Survival And Prosperity tomorrow.

Thank you for your patience.

Congratulations Chicago Blackhawks!

Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks on their 2015 Stanley Cup win…


Dick Marx Orchestra and Choir, Here Come the Hawks! (1968)
YouTube Video

Any old school Blackhawks fans remember the sound of the “war drums” (boarded-up windows being pounded on) raining down from the rafters of the old Chicago Stadium when play got tense?

Good times. I picked up quite a few life lessons there with my family having Blackhawks season tickets in the 80s. Like situational awareness (errant slap shots can do a lot of damage to the unprotected human body). Plus food security (using food condiments where obnoxious/drunk members of the public can access it might not be a good idea). And Ron Duguay sucks.

“Duguay sucks! Duguay sucks!”

To this day I still don’t know why this particular Red Wings player drew the ire of certain Chicago fans. Perhaps it was that rocked-out hair of his (no helmet needed).

Anyway, reminiscing over. Back to our regularly-scheduled programming…

Summer Reboot

Sorry for the lack of new material on Survival And Prosperity lately. I intended to keep up the pace of blogging after the long Memorial Day Weekend, but other projects and such required my immediate attention.

Now that my “summer vacation” away from the blog has concluded, it’s back to business as usual.

“Back to business as usual.” If only the same could be said for America these days.

New posts will be published starting Sunday.

Enjoy the weekend!
