Bingo. A friend of mine and I had lunch the other day following a visit to my ENT for an ear infection and he told me what happened to him recently. He's well off, house paid off, foster daughter about to graduate high school, etc. But, because of the blackout last month here in Michigan, his office phone was out for two weeks, his computer crashed and he's a month behind in his billing. I wrote about my experience. I got so stressed out, I got an ear infection and lost my right ear for three weeks. It sucked.

Also, NVP was a pre-cursor to Joel Osteen. Who's even worse than Peale.

That's not the original cast. Bill Murray came on after Chevy Chase left. Also, Billy Crystal was in the original cast right up until 10 minutes before the show started. He and Christopher Guest were brought in to save the show in season eight.

These people who think they'll be fine in Alaska or Canada's Yukon Territory are nuts. The people promoting Wise Foods aren't doing it for everyone. One bucket of dried food costs $85, the last I looked a few years back. How am I going to afford that on Social Security and maybe $25,000 in 10 years? I'm saving money every damn month, yet it won't be enough to live on, beyond maybe five years. These rich people who think they'll 'escape' to New Zealand are in for a shock. When the grid goes down, it'll be like 'Jerchio' or 'Revolution.' They'll be no planes or phones (landlines are making a comeback) and once your computer's batteries are used up, you're screwed. Short-wave radio's and old computers (think Apple IIe's or 486's) might keep us in contact for about three-five months, but that's it.
