Re: No shortages?

I know of a number of really good employers who staff are saying, screw going to work when while not collecting full pay, figure they are saving gas...and just stay home. Then there are government workers who while being paid mind you and being asked to now come back, are finding excuses like my chi...

Re: Pandemic

Cracks me up. https://nypost.com/2020/09/24/covid-19-mutation-may-be-evolving-to-bypass-masks-hand-washing/ Why does it crack me up? Because it was easy to predict and therefore plan for.

Re: No shortages?

Though the racks weren’t as full as “pre pandemic”, I could have picked up whatever I would have needed for a small project.

Re: What Did You Prep This Week

More rice, pasta and topping up what has been used over past week. Some $5.00 9/12 tarps on sale at China tire. Freezer pooched so getting a replacement. Can only get a chest unit as stand ups are scarce as hens teeth at a dentists. Harvest of carrots is an enormous success so canning and freezing o...
