I am on fixed income, so any price increase(outright or through a company's attempted deception)of decreasing size without a proportional decrease in cost, or increasing price as well as a decrease in quantity, has a direct effect on my purchasing power. My social security payments have to be stretched further to accommodate these price changes, or I have to go without.

When I was working and my services were needed because of high demand and few professionals in my specialty field, I could charge enough to make costs relative to income. Unfortunately, I became ill and unable to continue working. Social security covers only the most basic of needs. I am thankful that both hubby and I had contributed to retirement plans, which enable us to have a fairly good quality of life. We do pay in to the Federal and State governments because we opted to get ahead by working hard, saving when we could, and spending only what we could afford. Our prudent lifestyle helps pay for those who cannot afford to pay in anything to the government. Believe me when I say that I miss working in my profession, for the enjoyment and intrinsic rewards of working, not to mention the higher financial remuneration. But, that's life I guess, so we roll with the flow. Above all, I am thankful that I wake up each morning to enjoy the gifts our Creator has provided

well..... angel (am staff) finally had enough of mee(my cat...because all she ever says is "meeee").

ever since we allowed angel to become an inside dog, all mee does is hiss and swat and growl and sit directly across from her and glare (seriously if you seen this you would be thinking any minute angel would just burst into flames)

angel has proved to the rest she means no harm and has even begun to romp around a little with my husbands cat.

today the situation finally came to a head while they were in passing to the community water dish and mee decided against her better judgement to turn around at the last minute and hook angel on her left shoulder.

i see mee then disappear almost completely in angels chops and im thinking oh god she's done for... there is no way i can get to them in time. i really thought she was going to shake her and snap her neck but instead she threw her head up tossing mee end over end thru the air. she landed on all fours in the middle of the coffee table.

sigh.... heart beat returning to normal finally.

i wonder how this will change the dynamic of their relationship..... time will tell i guess but first i gotta wait for mee to come out from behind the dryer.

probably should have dug her out and locked her in the time out bathroom for a few minutes like i do when they all gang up on the poodle and stuck angel out in the rain or in her crate....

but instead i filled the dryer and slammed the door extra hard which resulted in a loud scuffling and accompanying panicked sounding "meee!" from behind.

figure she will come out and either keep her distance or with a vendetta. you never know with her.... i once watched her purr and "mee" very cordially till hubby's cat was sitting directly under her meowing in return (and really he should have seen this next one coming because she hasn't been even remotely nice to him in the past seven years) she yanked one of my avon perfume figurines right off the shelf and onto his dome.
Whatever

I agree with you and am on a fixed income too and even dropped over a $100,000 on health issues. But I am still here and still blessed by the Creator's gifts. When I said it was relative.. I meant that what you have in material wealth then someone wants it and will do everything possible to get it, but what you don't have they can't get. Sure we complain about the higher prices and the lower quanities, but we keep right on buying the stuff.

Well, my fine feathered friends, it looks like a SHTF scenario is about to unfold.@ Abeliever: Please review the recent articles about the Louisiana sinkhole, which has been kept under wraps by mainstream media, possibly to avoid panic.
The sinkhole is growing exponentially now and has swallowed up 3 more acres in less than a week, and one acre in one day. It is now 12 plus acres. More than 20 acres beyond this are sinking, and there will be more evacuations needed. This has been accompanied by a sharp uptick in seismic activity, and scientists are now worried about disruption of the New Madrid Fault line. A panel of 13 scientists (unlucky number) are trying to figure out what is going on, and there seems no way to stop it. It is the first of its kind in the world, and lucky us, we are near the fireworks. Workers had to stop inspecting because of seismic activity. There is much news about this now. Check it out. Just google the Louisiana sinkhole and you will find lots of information.

We've just got to grow more veggies and fruit, raise chickens, cows for milk and meat, etc. Rural people have it over on the city folks, but those city folks will try to get ours when they run out. I do not worry. Let's say that I just try to be proactive. I do feel sad for the little kids growing up now. They will never have it as good as we did.

Can you believe the cereal boxes? Smaller and smaller, less cereal in them. Higher priced. The wife like Corn Pops (used to be called Sugar Pops but we can't have that now can we/)and they are now $5.89 in Ron's IGA and oddly, Dollar General has fewer and fewer deliveries of cereal. No Corn Pops for months. Diet Coke Zero is sometimes 3 for $10 but usually over $4.80 per 12 pack!

Snickers Almond and Snickers Peanut Butter squares are so small but the packaging is the same size. At Dollar General those are .75 cents but at Road Ranger across the street they are $1.25. A 14 oz Coke in the plastic bottle is $1.89!! Diesel at $4 per gallon costs me $160 to fill up my F350 Super Duty. Gas at $3.75 is only $75 (20 gallon tank versus 40) for my Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited. So $235 every week for two vehicles? Crazy.

I make OK money but what are people doing that make $10-$15 per hour?$600 a week for groceries,gas,electricity,wate r,TV,telephone, mortgage and internet for most of us. It scares me....

It's not over. Obama has a carbon tax coming that will drive up the price of fuel even higher plus electricity. We may all have to get together to share to live.

My 100'x100' garden in tilled, finally got a few days of dry this week. Lot's of planting to do! We'll see but I'm not sleeping as well as I used to.:-)

5am and my world is white. Been too muddy to plow here for a month or more. Costs nearly a $1000 for my son to fill up the Kenworth and my poor old pickup truck has not seen a full tank in nearly 2 years.

I wish I made $10 an hour but nobody needs an old man to work so I just work on my own stuff and raise chickens for a little extra egg money and help other old folks with their projects and trade eggs and work for meals. I do get some good pies and cakes. LOL I

Oh, I have seen all that you describe, and you're right! Just wait until we feel the effects of the carbon tax. Everything has gone up. Just insuring my property is becoming exhorbitant, and it may price me right out of where I love to live. I am down from 6 horses to one horse and our pony. I just about gave away two blue-blooded Tennessee walkers, just so that I knew they would be used kindly. Bales of hay and bags of grain just got way too high.
Good Morning

It's 8 EST here and from the looks of it outside the snow all but passed us by!!! Yay! There's a little on the cars and even less showing on the ground!!*happy dance*.
Over the weekend I did purchase a couple of simple bird feeders and today I will head for the farm store to find some bird feed! I'll definitely have all the supplies ready before the g'kids get back from spring break so they can help set everything up!

Fuel prices going higher? Ouch! I run up and down the road a lot so this is not good! My mom only went to town once a week for shopping and I go at least once a day. Hmmm, I do remember dad stopping at the store on the way home from work every day to pick up a gallon of milk for our family of 5. 7 gallons of milk a week and 1 carton of *cokes*. Now it's a gallon of milk a week just for me and several fast food drive thru *cokes*.:-(

Good morning, my fine feathered friends. Looks like cold wind will dominate the day, but thank-goodness we only got a coating of snow. Plenty of birds to wake me up EARLY this morning. Their tweets, yacks, and caws work better than an alarm clock. The only problem is that I can't set their time.
