Making a great cup of tea isn’t as difficult as you might think. The graphic above from the folks at Utility Journal shows you exactly how long you should steep each type of tea, and what the temperature of the water you use to make the tea should be.
Steeping times and temperatures are important, but a thermometer with a timer on it is all you need if you don’t even want to think that much about it. Usually you’ll need to bring your water to a boil and then turn off the heat for a little while to get the right temperature, but aside from that, it’s easy. Of course, make sure you start with quality tea as well. If you need help in that department, we have some guides for you. Hit the link below for more tea brewing tips.
If you’re from Pennsylvania, this video will make your day.
Pennsylvania sure does breed some manly men, huh? These three dudes’ hilarious take on Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” is all the proof I need.
My absolute favorite part is the one guy’s rap at the end. “Take a long ride down the Hershey Highway/Pig out on sauerkraut every New Year’s Day,” he says. Now that’s a real Keystone man.

Both Morse Code and the Phonetic Alphabet have been used by the military world over for almost a century now, and for good reason! Along with the many other things you as a prepper should learn and memorize, memorizing Morse Code and the Phonetic Alphabet should be on that list. Although Morse Code is no longer used in it’s traditional form, it can still be used as an unconventional method to communicate with others long or short distance using radio, lights, sound, and a variety of other methods. As for the Phonetic Alphabet, it’s primarily only used when communicating over radio/digital devices to prevent confusion between similar sounding letters. The Phonetic Alphabet is especially useful when communicating over choppy signals or when in loud environments. Several hours of studying is all it will take to memorize these codes, and it’s very likely you’ll one day need this information.
Wait for it!
Remember when ram meant just a male sheep
And bugs and worms were just things that creep?
When a gopher and a mouse were li’l critters
And virus were microbes that gave one the shivers?
When a web was a sticky net that housed a spider
And nets were just strings all woven together?
When surfing was just riding an ocean wave
And a slip was dodging trouble with a close shave?
When a mime was a painted-face animated mute clown
And hackers were people who slashed things down?
When menus and servers were all about eating
And addresses and homes were places for living?
When Archie and Veronica were actually people
And trolls were pests that were considered mythical?
When mud was just slime and Spam was just food
And to ‘finger’ someone was not considered good?
When to chat and to talk still needed a voice…?
Now being online has all but mooted that choice.
