    I have this friend that I've known for about ten years now. We'd gone through a long time where we didn't speak to one another for a variety of reasons. But I'd say that over the last nine months or so, we'd been talking a whole lot more. This friend is a long-distance friend but because they...

    I've been listening to a lot of predictions for the years ahead and paying attention to my own geographical area and I'm prepping for bad times coming.

    ~I just saw a guy on a motorcycle stop and pick through our recyclables for cans. We've had people stop and look through our 'junk' but never the recyclables. He had a trailer on his bike and it was full of trash bags. I wonder how much he makes turning in cans? We rarely have soda cans so I...

    I went to Wal-mart tonight and realized something odd. Not one of the cashiers were young high schoolers. And six of them were middle-aged men. Unemployed who are glad for hours during the holidays I am guessing. But I am still amazed.
