Here's the story. The last two or three months I've gone into my local grocery store, I shop once a month for food, and I have asked where they keep
the vanilla, (real vanilla used in baking a whole lot of things). They used to carry a one-ounce bottle for an even $1. I thought that was a pretty
good price. But.... they haven't had any of it for several months now. Last month when I went in, (I bake a lot), I saw on the shelf where they used
to carry the $1 vanilla, it was now marked $7.16 for two
ounces of pure vanilla. That is quite a price increase, let me tell you! Well, it's
toward the first of the month today, so I went in there to do my grocery shopping and asked the woman working behind the register, "Where's the
vanilla?" She got all hateful with me and said, "We told you last month that we're not going to be getting any more of that $1 vanilla!" I said,
"Excuse me, I wasn't asking about the $1 vanilla, I was asking about any vanilla, at any price." When you gotta have it, you just gotta have it - no
matter what the price. I added,"But you never seem to have any of the $7.16 two-ounces bottles, either." Now, get this - this is what she told me.
And apparently I'm not the first person who needed vanilla. She said "Our distributor doesn't offer pure (real) vanilla to us any longer. We cannot
get it anymore." A full grocery store that doesn't sell pure (real) vanilla any longer? That is a pretty significant turn of events, if you ask
Society is indeed collapsing, I see little things like this every day. Taken all together, they mean something - and it doesn't mean anything good;
I'm sure of that. You'll all have heard the recent anouncement by Ford Motor Company that in 2020, they're going to stop making all cars except for
the Mustang and a new Focus; two tiny cars. They said people's tastes have changed and they don't buy cars any more. How can people's tastes ever
change back to buying cars when there will be no Ford cars to buy? It's little things like this that keep adding up to a scarier (near) future for
the world. Please feel free to add things like this that you have personally witnessed, and that show how things are changing very rapidly and never
for the better.
