The daily news isn't very rosy these days ------ matter of fact, I'd liken it to something more like skunk cabbage!
There has been talk in the past 2 years about recession; double-dip recession; depression; inflation; hyper inflation ----- are you depressed yet? I try not to let it get me down, but look at the days we are living in as a challenge!
I do believe that tough times are ahead, and I want to do everything I can to make our daily lives run as smooth as possible. So I am trying to formulate a game plan that I can put into play that is simple yet thorough. Even if the economy doesn't go into a terminal tail-spin, keeping a 6-12 month food supply and learning to rotate it will give you one less thing to worry about should you get laid off, or suffer some other unforeseen financial crisis. Here is what I have decided to focus on first:

~ Animal Feed
