In the News.......

Hi everyone! If you were able to attend the Meet 'n Greet that MMPaints arranged, please know I'm jealous!! :) I hope it was a great get-together! Hoping we see more of those kinds of meet-ups in the future!

Did you see this article on Yahoo? It's about how gas prices have risen in IL compared to other states. Well, if you're like me and you're out driving anywhere, you know it! I try to do as little driving as possible and definitely combine errands so that I'm not out wasting more gas than I have to be!

I also saw this article about falling home prices. I think that most of you reading here believe that things are not going to get better anytime soon. That's why we prepare!!

While loosely discussing the situation in Egypt, a friend said to me in surprise and alarm that the atm's in Egypt weren't able to dispense cash. This person was truly shocked and then asked, "What if something like that happened here?" I was thankful to be able to respond that those types of situations are ones that we can easily prepare for by keeping some cash in a safe place at home. I said I was 'loosely' discussing the situation because I truly don't feel the need to get involved in what goes on in other countries. But, I was thankful that in this instance, a foreign situation could be used to hopefully open up the eyes of someone who hadn't thought that what goes on in other places could also happen here.

I hope you're staying alert. I hope you're prepping. I hope you know WHY you're prepping! This will help you to figure out the plan for your preps.

Prep On!

The news does look bleak. Ugh! I never used to pay attention to the happenings overseas, but as of late, it appears what happens there affects us here too. Glad to see your back posting.

Hi Shelly!! Trying to stay plugged in here, but the past few weeks have been hard. The winter lull is making me feel dull and uninspired! Trying....How are you? I miss hearing from you and reading your posts! Are you still planning your own blog? Take care!
