It doesn't have to be doomsday to take a little control over how and what you eat, how you stay warm in the winter etc. If the people on St. Croix Island would have had rose hips, we might be a French colony. Doesn't hurt to have a bunch of beans in the cupboard and a few chickens in the back. If there is a thermo nuclear war, a plague, or Zombies, I wouldn't much care to live like that, but a financial meltdown, or severe financial retreat, that could set our whole society back a hundred years. that might be a dream come true.

Even The Red Cross has recommendations for a "Bug Out" bag and necessities you should have for at least 3-5 days but with some of the outages and disasters happening all over the US, think that having food/water/wood for 2-3 weeks at least is not a bad thing.

Nuclear disasters, Mayan calendar, polar switching...figure I don't even want to bother being around after that.

I take it, that there's no need to get any Christmas presents this year.

I think you should keep getting some X-mas presents together. Maybe make them useful things in case it gets dicey.

I think the odds of the planet being totally destroyed in 2012 is pretty slim except in the fear mongers mind. We lost power for almost 3 days last summer and I thought it was fun. The village was totally dark and people actually got out side to walk their dogs and talk face to face without using their gadgets. It was kind of refreshing except for the hum of the generators all night long. We were prepared and did just fine, now if something unsurvivable hits our planet, we're prepared for that as well. Guns+bullets= bye bye.

I feel that time moves a little slower here anyway. If the world collapses on 12-21-2012 then we probably won't find out about it for at least a few months.

I am personally partial to the Aliens landing and buying all our aluminum for diamonds and gold, making the price of gold and diamonds fall through the floor, and destabilizing our whole financial system.

Well.... the 21st is a Friday and you'll be on your way to Eastport so I guess I can't ask for your new truck in case this is the rapture and you get taken and I am "left behind". Maybe you could take the other car and "leave the Truck BEHIND".

But we'll have enough time to eat out on Thursday and we can exchange Christmas gifts then for one last time. I'm suggesting something like maybe a life preserver for me, maybe one of those with the whistle attached. And the wife would like a copy of Nearer My God To Thee on CD in the rendition from the Movie Titanic.

We'll discuss the truck thing later, but I must have forgotten to mention that I go Jehovah Witness for the holidays. Save a bundle.
