How the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse Can Help Your Family Prepare for the Unexpected

T-7 Days until the  first total solar eclipse in the continental U.S. in 38 years! Motherstucker & Family have been BUSY preparing for this event happening on August 21st & will be headed directly to the path of totality. Where exactly? The perfect location for our family + friends remains to be seen (somewhere between  Clinton SC & Newberry SC) – However, we have all the gear needed & are prepared for the unexpected!

Emergency managers in South Carolina are planning for an estimated influx of more than one million visitors (just into South Carolina alone)!) for several days on either side of the eclipse. Experts advise to expect nearly everything to be above capacity for nearly a week total. Residents, businesses, & visitors should all be prepared for this historic event by keeping safety in mind.

ECLIPSE ( & Beyond!) TIPS:

•Traveling out of town with friends/family in separate vehicles? Make sure all cars in your party have walkie talkies to communicate as South Carolina & others states in the path of 100% totality cell phone towers’ could jam. State officials urge, “Be prepared for cell service overloads; there may be service disruptions due to the increase in visitors using networks.”

•Have bottled water, sunscreen, first aid kit, bug repellent, toilet paper & certified eclipse viewing glasses for every person in your party.

•Everyone in the continental U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse! Carry a digital watch  with accurate time (set on the day of eclipse).

•Bring ALL the tail-gate amenities including comfortable folding chairs or picnic blanket to sit on, a shade tent, table, games + extra batteries!

•Wear suitable clothing & a large brimmed hat (you will be outside in the sun for several hours) + sunglasses (not for direct viewing of partial or full solar eclipse phases).

•Fill your car up with gas & buy groceries before the weekend.  Bring a portable grill, extra fuel & sandwiches + snacks family/friends can enjoy! Don’t stop there! Start thinking about food storage needs for future preparedness from Patriot Supply & the Survival Seed Vault! The next Total Solar Eclipse will not occur until May 11, 2078 & while must of us won’t be around to appreciate that one,  having the necessary supplies on hand in the event of a disaster could be life saving!

• Kick Back & Enjoy Otherstuckers! “Travelers should be at their observation location a minimum of a couple hours before totality,” advised the Federal Highway Administration. “The role of state and local DOTs may include instituting roadblocks or other measures to keep people from making illegal turns as they drive around looking for ‘the perfect spot’ as eclipse totality nears.”

MOST Shocking Things Motherstucker Never Knew About Australia!

•Australia was the first nation in the world to allow women the right to vote (New Zealand was first). More about Australia’s current political landscape can be found at The Sydney Morning Herald!

•There are 60 wine regions in Australia.

•Over 90% of Australia is dry, flat and arid. Almost three-quarters of the land cannot support agriculture in any form.

•Under ideal viewing conditions, like in the Australian Outback, the naked eye can detect about 5,780 stars.

•Australia has 3 times more sheep than people.

•The box jellyfish is considered the world’s most venomous marine creature. The box jellyfish has killed more people in Australia than stonefish, sharks and crocodiles combined.

•In Australia there are almost 100,000 more women than men, with six out of our eight states and territories experiencing a man drought. But this is evening out. Currently there are almost 105 baby boys born for every 100 baby girls born in Australia.

•Are you free for the next 27+ years? If you were able to visit 1 new beach in Australia every day, it would take over 27 years to see them all.

•The wombat (native to Australia) deposits square poos.

•Australia has 3 National Ultimate Frisbee Teams.

•Out of the 25 deadliest snakes in the world, 20 can be found in Australia.

•There are over 200 languages spoken in Australia including 45 different indigenous languages.

•The dingo fence, which stretches from the Great Australian Bight in SA to central Queensland, is the longest fence in the world (5614km). It is about twice as long as the Great Wall of China.

•Kangaroos and emus cannot walk backward, which is one of the reasons that they’re on the Australian coat of arms. Speaking of which, Australia is one of the only countries where they eat animals on their coat of arms!

•There are approximately 25 million kangaroos in Australia. The Australian human population is a mere 23,856,200. Likewise, camels outnumber koalas ten to one.

•Australia is only slightly smaller than the U.S. of A. When compared to the land size of Australia vs. the land size of the contiguous 48 states, Australia is only slightly smaller at 7.692 square kilometers.

•Australia has about 1.2 million millionaires and the highest median wealth in the world.

Motherstucker’s MUST READ: Deadly Vows by Robert Marsh

In life or death, sometimes the actions toward another person are not forgotten. The invasions of another persons mind set can cause the viewer to take a step back, sit up and imagine that the enemy does not see what is coming. They are in the inner part of the enemy head to feel the pain and not mix it up. In a new line up of horror stories, Mr. Marsh takes us to the existence that there is more to life and death that we already know. Marsh focuses hard on showing us the different views of how pain and a doormat person can live inside us all and not realizing it until it is to late. Marsh mind set is so strong on the death of him, that he sheds a dark light just to allow us to read a little concerning the demons inside us all. The style he shows is very conversational and straight forward in his own dark ways. A book inside a book, “The Deadly Vows” is the mindset of Mr. Marsh. “The Deadly Vows” is powerful and offers us to see the evil we care not to see. The question after reading this book is, “Is it safe to go out again, knowing that there are people that are out there with his mindset. The “The Deadly Vows” is a dark and painful raw emotions book to read and it bares a spectrum of themes to comprehend. Available NOW on Amazon!

Host Movie Night!

 

There’s something so magical about watching a movie under the stars—and summer is the perfect time to do it! So round up the kids, grab your friends, and get ready to enjoy some food, fun and flicks in your very own backyard cinema. If the weather is not cooperating, move the FUN inside mid-movie like my girls did!

1.Prepare Your Backyard Theater

First, the logistics. Scout the perfect spot to show your movie and gather up the proper equipment. You’ll need three basic things: a projector, a screen, and a laptop with speakers.

  • Projector: Buy, rent or borrow a movie projector with HDMI connectivity. Ideally, you’ll want one that is rated 2,000+ lumens for proper brightness. Prices range widely for projectors, but you can snag one online for as little as $100.
  • Screen: You’ll need a smooth, flat surface on which to project your movie. You can go simple (the side of your house or a doubled up white sheet hung from a clothesline) to more deluxe (a souped-up DIY screen that you build yourself, or an inflatable or foldable screen that you buy or rent). The choice is yours!
  • Laptop with speakers: You’ll need a laptop that plays DVDs (preferably Blu-ray) along with plug-in, portable speakers.

2.Pick the Right Movie

Choose a family-friendly, age appropriate flick that benefits from a “big screen” format. A few of our favorite picks across different categories.

  • Recent Animated Movies: Finding Dory, The Secret Life of Pets, Trolls, Zootopia
  • Live Action Fairytales: Maleficent, The Princess Bride, Enchanted, Beauty and the Beast
  • Hollywood Classics: E.T., The Karate Kid, Star Wars, Harry Potter

3.Set the Scene

Add some drama with details and décor to fit the theme. Remember: you can go as simple or as elaborate as you’d like depending on your schedule, budget or level of craftiness. Either way, your event will be a smash hit!

  • Invitations: Send invitations that double as “tickets” that can be collected as guests arrive.
  • Seating: Pepper your lawn with blankets, pillows, and a few low-back beach chairs for comfy seating options. If you’re feeling especially creative, build “cars” out of cardboard boxes so that the littlest movie-goers can have a drive-in experience.
  • Decorations: Hang paper lanterns from the trees or string up twinkly lights to illuminate walkways. Have the kids make a giant poster board sign welcoming everybody to your family “theater.”
  • Accessories: Hand out festive glow necklaces and bracelets to the kiddos to help them navigate in the dark. Put out some potted citronella plants and have natural bug repellent on hand in case mosquitoes try to crash your party.

4.Serve Cinema Snacks

It wouldn’t be a movie without the snacks, now would it? We say resist the urge to grill or cook, and keep it simple with easy-grab, concession-style munchies both kids and adults will love.

  • Popcorn: We love the look of an old-fashioned popcorn machine. You can buy one quite reasonably nowadays, or even rent one from a local vendor. Alternatively, simply make some microwave popcorn and serve it in individual red-and-white striped popcorn boxes or bags. Try a sweet-meets-salty flavor combination by mixing popcorn with Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks.
  • Concession Stand: Set up a table off to the side to serve as a concession stand for drinks, candy and other snacks. Serve organic juice boxes and water for the kids and a variety of beverages for grownups.
  • Snack Trays: In lieu of a concession stand, make individual snack trays for each moviegoer using plastic bento boxes or dollar store shower caddies. Fill the largest compartment with popcorn and the small compartments with convenient single-serve snacks, such as gluten free fruit snacks from Go Organically. 

Outdoors (or indoors!) – Enjoy the show!
