    Default Food.... famine

    Food prices could get scary this year. We have some serious
    interruptions in the food supply due to rain or lack of rain, depending
    on the location. Most of the productive areas in North America are
    experience record rainfalls and floods. Fields are too wet for farmers
    to to get out and work their fields, too wet to plant. Much of western
    Europe is facing drought conditions. They have had little or no rain
    during the critical sprouting and initial growth periods. China is also
    experiencing severe droughts. It seems that there is either not enough
    water, or there is way too much.

    Some analyst said that in 2012, the big deal won't be whether you have a
    Christmas Tree or not, but whether you will be able to find and to afford
    the fixings for the Christmas dinner. Maybe he's right because that's about
    a year and a half away.

    I import all of my food from Russia, Finland and/or Sweden. This food
    fits neatly into a bottle and is called Vodka. I've been drinking
    this **** for decades, and I ain't died a winter yet. btw, Albrecht
    OK'd the murder of 500 thousand Iraqi children. But that doesn't sit
    too well with youse do it?

    We already have shortages of produce here at times. Have had for a few
    years.

    Huh? Odd. I've not noticed this ever before this week since the freaky
    weather. What sort of shortages have you seen and what was missing?

    This quote is based on a single search engine hit that I looked at, but
    it makes sense.

    "At the other end of the spectrum, Wal-Mart and others under more
    pressure to get their financially squeezed shoppers to spend, are
    offering more discounts and pushing smaller packages at the end of the
    month when shoppers have less money."

    "CVS Caremark Corp. announced Wednesday it was offering a new program
    for its loyalty card members to earn free $10 gas cards for every $30
    they spend on certain items from Sunday through Aug. 28. Eligible
    offerings, from soda to household cleaning products, will be listed in
    an advertising circular and highlighted on store shelves with a gas tank
    logo."

    http://www.wtop.com/?sid=2388166&nid=

    So maybe the best time to shop is the end of the month. Do all your big
    shopping then, and supplement just small purchases at other times. And
    look for offerings that get you gas for spending in their store. I've
    been only grocery shopping at Giant to get gas discounts at Shell.

    This demands more research.

    the experts say that this year's flooding is going to impact next year
    more than this year.
