A quick entry into my dusty blog to say hello to my fellow bloggers. Life is moving swiftly on my end as I work feverishly to keep up. Kids are all flourishing and enjoying school (gasp!) Wifey is sewing her fingers to the bone getting ready for Christmas as we've promised to give only handmade goodies to family this year. I am working twice as hard, or so it seems, at my hospitals to perform my regular duties and a few new ones.
I'm still watching all that is going on around us in this crazy world. I'm not sure I believe the true nature of the Occupy Wall Street crowd. Seeing Michael Moore and Al Gore attend some OWS rallies put them under scrutiny in my eyes. Now Drudge says good 'ol ACORN is involved in another OWS movement. I am still shocked at what they got away with (electing Obama with all their voter fraud).
Gerald Celente still proves to be a terrific indicator of what is happening now and what to expect in the future. I have been an active (paid) subscriber of his now for three years. He has helped me to "see the light" on the need for preparedness and is one of the people that spurred me to start becoming prepared. His warnings led me to Survivalblog and the rest is history. (Of course, this coincided with my joining the LDS church who, as most know, are HUGE on preparedness).
I still have enough food to provide about a year's worth of nutrition for my family. I haven't begun to plant crops for this season and I'm not sure if I'm too late now. We are finally getting a cold spell in central Arizona. I'll have to look at my charts and see if my fellow bloggers have any advice (Anne...help!) ;-)
Just about everything that can break down...is breaking down mechanically right now. Toilets, sinks, garbage disposal, radiator, catalytic converter, oil leaks x 2, my Crown Berkey (sob), refridgerator. The rewards of actually keeping assets instead of renting them has caught up to me. My ten year old house, and all appliances that came with it, is crumbling (or so it seems.) Both vehicles are in serious need of repair.
Such is life. How are ya'll?
