All people who have heard something about December 21st 2012 have been altered a little one way or another. Even if they do not admit it they will do
something which seems weird to others. The change is probably because the school knows that some people may keep their kids home just in case which
will make attendance records look worse.
I do not know if anything is going to happen, but I do not think that is a critical date for anything. I base my opinion on getting prepared on the
facts that are out there and what I observe. There is a grain shortage this year so stocking up on beef is a necessity while it is still cheap.
Eggs, beef, chicken, pork, milk, cheeses, and other things will have their price increased in the future along with the direct effects of the foods
involved. I am preparing for a lot of these things so it doesn't inconvenience us. I have backup heat and kerosine lamps and batteries for short
periods of lights out and also have water that I constantly change for drinking. I have fifty gallons of water aside in a barrel for the toilet also.
I live n the country so no water when the power goes out. This is all sensible stuff, not Paranoia, the government is even telling people to be
prepared for events that seem to be more frequent and severe. Anyone not preparing is on cloud nine. I am not preparing for events longer than a
month myself because to do so would cause waste because stuff can't be rotated appropriately to keep spoilage down.
I just threw out an old can of peas that got mixed in wrong, they expired two years ago. It makes a mess if a can goes bad and leaks it's fluid.
Watch dented cans and use them right away, watch dates if you do this. Keep in mind that bugs can be a problem also and cause waste. Throw out any
cangoods that look iffy now, because when something happens it is not the time to accidently use one. We always dump stuff in a dish before adding it
to a sauce or soup so we don't ruin the dish. A few times we had a bad feeling about things because they didn't look right. Even a brand new can
can have something in it, like growths or even fingers
No use ruining the food, I'd rather ruin my appetite.
2012 crap is a reminder that we are not as advanced as we think we are and means we need to check our preparedness. Having money doesn't mean you
will be getting service when there is none to be had. A month without food, water, or electricity is possible, and it would really really suck.
Being prepared can still leave openings for problems but will make things better. Government rations will be around within weeks but standing in line
all the time will suck also. Look at all the people who deal with disaster telling people to be prepared. They aren't saying this just to make us
