And then Nature said...Hold my beer... I wonder if many of the things we thought we 'needed' will be so on The Morning After? My BFF & I were talking about this yesterday. I"m about to retire & I just found out in the last 2 1/2 months I can live quite comfortably on my pension alone. By staying out of restaurants and hey - I didn't need any pedicures or massages - or a housecleaning service. Thousands of dollars spent on stuff that I lived without. I believe a lot of these 'necessites' may not come back after These Days. Many people I talk to are looking to downsize, embracing simplier lives Preparing for The Plagues which may follow. Everyone seems pretty sure Nature may not be finished with us quite yet.
