A pole shift won't happen over night like most scientists around the world have led the public to believe. A pole shift takes decades and possibly
centuries to take places. The poles have actually been shifting for many years now, supposedly the speed is around 30-40 miles a year that the
American side of the Earth is moving South, while the Russian, European, Asian and Africa side is moving North.
As to the 3 days of darkness, it may have occurred in the past; but those that might have lived through it in the past didn't really state why it
happened, that is if it really did happen.
Don't worry about people poking fun at you at Christmas, that is what Christmas is all about; looking back on the year... expecting the worst.... and
everything came out fine in the end.
You might bring up to your Christmas family that people all over the world were anxious as to what might happen. Some people took precautions, and
these people, possibly including you learned a lot from it.
As for me... I learned a great deal of stuff that I would never have learned. I learned how to go out and plant an orchard, and that those that would
get the most enjoyment out of it really wasn't me, even though I've had great enjoyment out of it. Deer, raccoons, turkeys, squirrels and other
critters have taken a liking to it. The critters in the summer would come right up to me and get water from me in these days of drought. When the
fruit came on... they were the first to rip into it. The deer even destroyed some of my prized trees that I planted, but... I still have more than
enough to keep me happy.
Looking on to something occurring in 2012 brought something out of all of us. We all prepared for something to happen, but none of us really knew
what to expect or if to expect nothing. Those of us that were interested in helping ourselves and others went ahead and did stuff, and from this
different stuff that we did, we learned.
I didn't learn anything about orchards and trees before, but now I know a lot about orchards and trees. I also know a lot about grapes that I
didn't know before. Its been a great experience growing over a thousand trees from small stick sized trees, as well as trying to grow about a
thousand grape vines at the same time. Even though the drought took most of the grape vines and a few of the trees, plenty are left, that I can now
multiply the remaining trees and vines into an even larger orchard and vineyard.
I learned a lot about my mistakes. First of all, lots of people in books tell you that too much water kills your new grapevines and trees... nothing
could be further from the truth during a period of drought. Trees and vines need lots of water in drought times. But that's enough about some of my
stories of 2012... you must have many of your own to tell at Christmas to tell your family about, and I'm sure they will be interested in the stories
that you tell them.
Those that prepared for something to happen became STRONGER. Those that did nothing, stayed the same. Merry Christmas to you my friend, and don't
worry, your family will be very proud of you for taking their jabs at you when they get the chance, its kind of a human nature thing. The more jabs
that people take at you, and that you take congenially, the more they will respect you. So... make sure you take their jabs at you into consideration
as strengthening a bonding relationship with them by being good to them always.
