Ok....dear friends This world of ours is getting scary isn't it? Grocery and gas prices are the highest they have been in a long time!

So perhaps you missed that original post five yers ago...and if you remember it, you can either read it again or go get yourself a cup of coffee or whatever you do to take a break. :) It is all over the news ...
