My post Zombie Apocalypse continues to be one of the top three all time viewed posts on my site. Not wanting to argue with success and finding the following news story on The Blaze yesterday I could not resist revisiting the Zombie topic in an unabashed use of real news twisted into another send up to Zombies and including gratuitous violence.

According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face and shouted on his loud speaker for him to back away. Meanwhile, a woman also saw the incident and flagged down a police officer who was in the area.
The officer, who has not been identified, approached and, seeing what was happening, also ordered the naked man to back away. When he continued the assault, the officer shot him, police sources said. The attacker failed to stop after being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.
In the vein of thought that the moon landing was ‘faked’; what makes us think that the news media and police really want us to know what really happened? Sure, blame it on cocaine! The Herald printed that investigators believed it might be; “cocaine psychosis” — a “drug-induced craze that bakes the body internally and often leads the affected to strip naked and try to cool off.” Yah, right, I’ve seen the Zombie movies! You and I know what is really going on here.
In Madeleine Morgenstern‘s story she quotes; Larry Vega said he witnessed the attack, writing to Local 10, “I stopped a City of Miami police officer and informed him that a homeless man was killing another person by biting and ripping his face to death.”
Vega also said, “The police officer confronted the aggressor, and he was like a rabid dog and confronted the officer. Then the officer shot the person four times.”
Note to police; every Zombie hunter knows only a brain destroying head shot will stop a Zombie. Maybe Homeland Security needs to start Zombie Terrorist training program!
Then according to the reports they take the victim, in critical condition, to the hospital for treatment. Probably no isolation ward, no guards so when he wakes up he starts eating others! If you are in a Miami hospital ….. RUN!
On a somewhat related thought; I was at the store the other day and my wife was looking at clothes. No… I was in the magazine section! I ran across a new magazine in the rack….had to buy it….Zombie Nation premiere issue. You should be able to find it at the news stand in the gun section. My wife says I’ve had my head buried in it since I got it. Ignore the picture she took.
If you are into Zombies definitely spend the $8.99 (U.S and Canada) There are some good articles on firearms and accessories and I had no idea so many serious manufacturers were jumping on the Zombie train with specialized products. I had no idea EOTECH had a new site out with a bio-hazard reticle. Several of the articles are definitely translatable to home defence and then there are some tongue in cheek pages on Zombie attacks.
Given the problems in Miami it should be required reading for the Miami Police Department!
The centerfold is a tear out Zombie Nation Target Poster that I thought would look really great on the office wall….my lovely wife had a different opinion, but then I don’t think she believes in Zombies either. I am thinking about putting it in the garage so I can scare the daylights out of myself if I go out there in the middle of the night.
Watch your back!

Good Morning Joes and Janes;
I have been down this past weekend and not able to put together a devotional and I am headed out the door to a job (Praise the Lord) this morning. I am reposting the all-time most popular devotional that I have done in the last 5 months. It had 112 people read it last week alone. Most of these were from search engine searches. My question is, why is the Zombie Apocalypse subject so big? I don’t really have an answer, and I encourage you to give me your thoughts. I am out the door for today and will be back with you with a new devotional for tomorrow.

The January 2ndblog, Preparedness Lessons from Y2K, ended with “To sum up; make sure you are not wasting a lot of time planning on a single event whether it is 2012 Doomsday or the Zombie Apocalypse, (there is another whole blog). Well today is the day. I actually write a lot of my blogs the evening before and post them after midnight. Well today I spent most of the day on a plumbing repair job and really haven’t had much time to think about what to write, not to mention that I didn’t get home until 7pm and I am falling asleep. Ardee probably thinks I look like a Zombie tonight but she’s too polite to tell me.
You don’t have to do much surfing on the web, particularly in the area of survival or preparedness without running into Zombie sites, zombie clothes, shooting targets in 2 and 3 D, if you can imagine it, it’s out there.
For any of the ‘undead’ that are in the dark here is what Wikipedia has to say aboutZombies:
This article is about the figure from films such as “Night of the Living Dead”. For the figure from Haitian religion, see Zombie. For the philosophical concept, see Philosophical zombie. For other uses, see Zombie (disambiguation).

Hello all you Regular Joes and Janes
Happy Lord’s Day. As you regulars know I don’t post on weekends normally. I was catching up on what some of my fellow bloggers are writing and thought I would post this humorous post. What follows is in humor so don’t take it all that seriously.
It does bring a couple thoughts to mind for you to think about if you are a “Regular Noah”. As talked about in the post and following comments there are those out there that are looking for Noahs and counting on you. I hope you are not willing to shoot everyone on site in a worst case event, if not you need to plan to help out some friends and neighbors. Also now is a good time to share what you know with neighbors, friends and relatives. Also remember no man is an island. If you think you are going to stay up 24 hours a day seven days a week protecting your little empire, try it out now for a few days, like next weekend. Perhaps you will wake up and get to know your neighbors now.
When talking to your neighbors, talk to them about emergencies that are likely to happen in your neck of the woods. In reality the odds of a complete government collapse end of the world apocalyptic event happening is much less likely than a house fire, tornado or other weather event, or an earthquake.
And of course don’t forget to share the ultimate survival kit; Your Bible. Without accepting Jesus Christ as Savior and receiving His forgiveness for sins none of us will survive standing at the Judgement before God Almighty. It doesn’t help to survive to old age in our earthly lives and spend eternity in Hell. Anyway enough of my Sunday Sermon; have a good read and I will be back on Monday morning!

Good Morning Joes;
Well I am back from my road trip. Not! I wrote most of this blog on Monday, knowing today would be a long day. (Tuesday) Ardee and I left around 6:00 am and were halfway to Bozeman Montana around 8:00 when the transmission on our mini van decided that 222,894 miles was far enough. With a fairly quiet clunk, sigh, clunk, clunk, it gave up on putting engine power to the wheels. I got out to take a look under the hood, it was about 9 degrees and the wind was blowing. After getting back in the van, and trying to think positive thoughts, I decided that it was much better that the transmission went out than the engine! Yes both are terminal for a 95 van but it was a lot warmer sitting waiting for the wrecker with 3/4 tank of gas and an engine putting out heat. After a trip to a wrecking yard, trip back to Stevensville, (Thanks son!), borrowing a car, (Thanks mom), and heading back to Bozeman; we are now settled in a motel room safely for the night. (Thanks Lord for save travels and blessings of family and strangers!) In an hour it will be tomorrow and I can do my post. I am glad I prepared ahead for unforseen trouble on the trail. It makes this evening much less traumatic. On to Wednesday’s Devotional!
We’re all going to die! (But probably not today guy’s), so we might as well spend a little time in the Bible and prayer before we go out into the world to see what God has for us. More on crazy statements later.Yesterday we looked at Proverbs 22: 5-10. Today we will continue on in Proverbs covering verses 11-16.
11 He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have the king for his friend.
The honest and well-mannered or diplomatic person will have the government for his friend. (This is assuming that the king, i.e. government, is not an evil government.) Part of being prepared is being a friend to the government as far as is possible.
12 The eyes of the LORD keep watch over knowledge, but he frustrates the words of the unfaithful.
The Lord is the one who gives knowledge, so it is important for us to be in His will. If we are being unfaithful he will frustrate our words and deeds. Read the rest of this entry
