Meet the New Year, same as the Old Year

Here's to the year 2009 being a better one than 2008; however, I suspect that human behavior being what it is, events will continue to surprise only the inattentive, and that the West will continue to dig its own grave with both hands.

On a more personal note, as I continue and amplify my efforts toward a more self-sufficient lifestyle, I will be posting more regarding projects, information and the long list of unavoidable headaches that come with the process.

May you all have a prosperous and safe New Year; keep your heads down, the pantry full, and your powder dry.

I think stocking up on food might be a good idea. If the banks aren't lending, then the farmers aren't getting the loans they need to plant their crops. I wouldn't be surprised to see a serious food shortage in 2009.

My top survival item is a metal-coated plastic blanket. It reflects IR coming off the body - very handy in an unheated apartment during the winter.
