More Preparation

So in my/our ongoing quest to be ready in case the recession gets people going nuts, or some other possibility I am taking a free class in solar oven cooking tonight. Im excited about it. The LDS people around here have some awesome resources to be sure.

And I think dh and I have decided on a pair of 9 mm's and plenty of ammo. I want a cute little pink pocket hand gun too, I know its silly but I supopse Im just a tad girly sometimes :D, do girly and guns go together?

Anyhow, I guess I probably sound a little paranoid but with talk of gas reaching $8 a gallon and food going up and up and up, Im glad I have my garden. I still haven't gotten the chickens but I really think we should and the guns and solar cooking ability should help in case Im not paranoid.

Very interesting. I didn't know one could find a solar cooking class. We are planning on making mini solar cooking ovens with the kids for the summer reading program (so they can make a s'more), but first we have to adapt the resources we have. ;) I'll bet your solar oven will be much more sophisticated than ours. ;) Have fun!

P.S. Hope you get some chickens! :)

Well, we've already hit $4/gallon for regular at some stations here in town- it's gonna cost me an arm, a leg and my firstborn to drive to WA in a few weeks.
