Whoops! I blinked & it's over.

Federal reserve---says to have $500.00 on hand (just in case)

John Kossiksten (hahahha BAD spelling) says planes will not fall from the sky, although you may not want to travel to third world/underdeveloped countries where the air traffic control may fail. This is the BEST PART: He says that the Gov. is fine except for a FEW agencies...now get this, they include, Energy, Transportation and Defense...but it's no problem. ROTFLMAO! yah, no problem.

Store a little bit of food just in case---don't stockpile.

That felt good, I needed a good laugh.

BTW--doesn't this contradict most other media reports that Defense is a.o.k.?

Wowie! Those government agencies musta gone to a private tutor to bring their GAO report card grades up so fast....If I remember correctly most of them were in the C through F range not that many months ago.

Semantics Donna.

Many times PBS has transcripts of a show depending on who did it. You can search the site over at:

Drat! I failed at sarcasm again. I hate when that happens. :-)

Anyone know the exact name of the PS show? This helps when searching for transcripts.

Donna -- one of the facts of life is that imagination and curiosity are not equitably distributed. I still blunder in this respect, and I've been at it for a long time.

Does that make us all part of "Y2K Blunderers Anonymous?"

Me: Hi, my name is Donna and I'm a blunderer,..

Y2KB-Anon crowd: Hi Donna,...

-- Donna Barthuley (moment@pacbell.net), February 21, 1999.

Hi, Donna!!!

I'm not sure what the name of the show was. (sorry, hubby was channel surfing y2k caught his attention) My TV guide says Religion & Ethics Newsweekly was on at that time.

Best I can do,
