I'm keeping my food, thanks. If nothing goes wrong, I'll eat it over the course of the next few years.
Instead of stocking up on guns and ammo, I went to the local hardware store last January and bought 1000 empty, unused one gallon paint cans. They are teflon coated inside, and are great for rice and beans. That's what I put in them. I figured if things got bad, I'd hand out these paint cans to folks in my neighborhood instead of lead. I think I may give some of these to the local food banks in about 8 months. The rest I'll keep; this is not over, and I may need to feed people in my immediate vicinity still.
Peace and Love,

The Red Cross, FEMA and the Salvation Army will not be happy with me if I give my stash to them. They have constantly warned me to prepare for an earthquake and that's exactly what I have done. No one is exempt from any disaster, we live in a dangerous world. Everyday we hear of some disaster where food and water would have saved thousands if only people would have taken some precautions. So I am involved, I'm connected, and I care about myself and family. My positive energy has been spent the past couple of years, now I'm sitting back and enjoying the future knowing that I am prepared. I urge all of you to keep something in your pantry and rotate your food, it will pay off for you someday.

Yipes! The fact that you seem to believe you know anything about me or these people on this forum Stuns me. If you did, you would certainly not be so insipid. We are not dunderheads who have no concept of reality. Most of us even know how to Loooove. Argh. This is not GLOOM vision . Okay? We listen, learn, look, LOVE, and prepare! Many of us would not insult God by not being prepared for the life he has blessed us with. Good or Bad. Come what may. Small insignificant me has a responsibility to two tiny individuals more important than anything you could put on my plate or wave in front of my face. I will be prepared for anything for them!

Sorry but we'll hang on to ours.----

We will hang onto ours as well, but it would be real nice if you went and purchased a year of food to give to those agencies. I am sure they would appreciate it very much. Love it in fact.
