When the DGI's lose their 'D'...greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
We're all storing stuff. We know there isn't enough stuff out there.
Ergo: If the DGI's get to be like us in early 1999, we'll be using all our stored stuff just to get through 1999.

Yeh, I know.
That is just another factor in the brew, I am working on that little gem myself.
This da*n thing seems to have more pots than I have lids for. Don't you just know that this is going to be one "bitch bear" when it blows?

Start a big garden THIS spring. Get into canning, and bartering and other forms of co-op systems.

Diane, I just have to say you are the coolest and most principled y2k'er around.

hey, what about me?

You would be cool Jerry if you added something to this forum of real substance. I think between those ears you are probably an intelligent person. Give us something we can print and file away for the big day.

Diane, you are right on re the garden and getting into canning. Start now, do a winter garden if you live where the weather allows. If you can't, start an indoor herb garden & read the Square Foot Gardening book and grow food indoors this winter. For those of you with chickens, boost the flock with Cornish Cross chicks and you will be able to can those chickens starting about 6-7 weeks after hatching. Fifty or one hundred chickens will go a long way when canned. Get your canning jars now, tell those with whom you share Xmas gifts that you want canning jars, find out what they want too. It takes about 300 quart jars per person/year - WalMart $7/dozen.

Your approach guarantees you'll have a short tenure.
Hope this helps.

I agree with Diane, Gardening is the answer. Better buy those seeds now...and get the garden plowed...hmmmmm...another use for a horse!!!

what's a tenure?
if it's the thing you put into women, mine is not short, it is huge

Guys, don't waste your typing with Jerry. Have you ever seen that add what your brain looks like on drugs? It's fried like an egg. I feel sorry for the kid, but there's no hope, brain damage is permanent.
