A neighbor boy cracked his head day before yesterday and split open his scalp. Alarmed, his mother called and asked if we would look at it to see if it was severe enough to require stitches. Although it bled a lot as scalp wounds do, it was not deep or gaping, and the boy was current on his tetanus shots. His parents made sure the wound was very clean, and we don't anticipate any further problems.
But the incident reminded Don that he's been meaning to order Steri-Strip skin closures to add to our medical kit. He got online and ordered them at once.
But then he noticed something interesting. Amazon.com, as you know, always provides additional suggestions for anything you purchase from their website. "Customers who bought this item also bought..." -- and they give additional items to consider.
He found it interesting that customers who bought Steri-Strips had also bought "Patriots" and "How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It," by Jim Rawles of SurvivalBlog.com; as well as "One Second After" by William Forstchen. All of these are superb additions to everyone's Preparedness library.
Coincidence? I don't think so.
