EXCELLENT suggestions! The day may come when people in this country will come looking for food, because they cant afford to buy any because the dam government screwed them royally with massive deflation of their currency. Its happening. Farming is at an all time low, there are less farmers then there ever were, If the corrupt government would regulate foreign trade as much as they regulate the price of a gallon of milk, there would be plenty of JOBS in the USA.

They seem to be just a little smarter about looking for a better way to think and operate their daily living. They're willing to separate from "The Herd" and secure their Family's heat independant from Oil,Propane,Natural Gas and Electric resistance heat systems. This thread brings to mind one thing....Start to think calmly and rationaly about securing your other budget killer items needed for daily life with quality. Stick your nose outside and see where you may want to put that garden. How do I learn to do Hot-Water Bath/Pressure Cooker Canning to avoid the need for Freezers? How do I minimize my dependance on the Electric Co. Can I Co-Op with other Trustworthy Folks in the areas of Vegetables,Beef,Chicken,Pork,Seafood,Food Prep ? How about Coal,and Storage areas for it. Everything I've just listed get's whacked and gouged as Oil goes up. I'm not suggesting we all go Amish,but think about it for a minute....If you shield or insulate your budget from Oil Gouging,you've upped your security,stability and peace of mind....Makes for Saner,more predictable living in my book.
