    I slept pretty rough last night. I went to bed at a little after 11 and slept until 2 something then I woke up all bouncy. :yippee: I believe it was the result of the over the counter meds I've been taking.

    I read this article this morning and I keep wondering how are we going to make it? I really believe this is possible and not some scare tactic. If you look at the past 3-6 months and the way the price of oil a barrel is raising, it is very likely this could be a reality...
