    Sometimes you have to believe that politics alone, are not the only reason we are in an economic mess. The people in general are too dumb for democracy! Let's try to keep politics out of this duscussion, and stay on the subject of why most of our poulation may be too dumb for a domocracy to...
  2. Preparedness and Survival
    I did Red Cross Disaster Services for ten years and saw an awful lot of emergencies and disasters. This was an article I had written previously about preparing for an emergency. Thought some of you might find it helpful if you have been a little overwhelmed wondering where to start your...
  3. Military Families
    A recent post about waiting on orders for a new duty station had me thinking about the adjustment to a new location, new base, etc. How do you prepare for it? Do you scout out the location on your own? Do you try to get into contact with current military spouses? How long of an adjustment...
  4. Home Environment
    We're due to be out of the house (if the inspection goes awesomely) on the 21st of December. We have someone coming in and moving our items for us, but what do you do about the ones you don't want touched? We've decided to bring with us the items that we don't want to be touched by the movers...
  5. Preparedness and Survival
    I saw the original thread started in 2008 (most of the post were from 2008) so I was wondering about those of you yhat had posted on that thread where are you now? Did you get all the things done on your list or is there a "done"? Have you learned lessons along the way and if so what have you...

    A recent budget cut was passed eliminate a certain type of program that gives funding to parents to help with child care. This really affects many centers in Ohio and mine is one of them. Allthough our director says we will be ok, I feel she is sugarcoating things because our centers have MANY...

    I live in No. California where all these horrible wildfires are burning. I don't live close enough to a fire to worry about it, but we see the smoke in the air (haven't seen the sun in two weeks) and we can smell it when outside. This week our temperatures have been 107-112 so I've spent the...
  11. Preparedness and Survival
    So.... I don't live out in the country... although I want to. I don't have a homestead per se, although I want to. I still must deal with the 'preparedness' and 'emergency' situation. I have surfed some sites that are a little 'out there' and it's great, because I take what I need and leave...
  12. Vacations and Travel
    This year hubby and I will be spending our days off fishing and camping in an attempt to be more frugal on our vacation time. We havn't really done this before, but we both loved fishing in our youth and we went camping before. I would appreciate any advice from others who do this on how to...

    If you knew that there would definitely be a depression in 6 months to a year, what specific things would you do now to start preparing for it? Would you try to learn any new skills? If so, what ones? If you lived in a city [large or small], how would you prepare? I'd love to hear what all...

  17. Christmas
    The fall/winter holiday season is my favorite time of the year. I have very specific things I do to prepare for the upcoming holidays that I actually consider part of my traditions. Growing up in our multi-generational house we would begin getting company and start our holiday routines a couple...
  18. Utilities
    Just wondering what everyone was doing to prepare for winter. So far on our list: 1. Take out A/C (we dropped it out the window last summer, so we have had to duct tape some of the fins, and there is a huge hole in the duct tape work letting the outside air in). 2. Putting new batteries in the...

  20. Christmas
    Julie (Baxjul) had the wonderful idea of having a thread that we could list what we have gotten for 2006 Christmas as we get items.  I think it is a great idea.  We can post items we get all year long for next Christmas and I think it will be a motivator to get it done throughout the year and...
