Let's Listen To Carl Sagan Again...!


Maybe now more than ever, it would be a good time to heed the message put out by Carl Sagan before he died!

So much crazy stuff is going on in the world that hopefully some part of this message gets through to someone!

For the first time in a really long time, I have to admit that I am getting very concerned about things! More than concerned, I would say jumpy is a better choice of words. Food shortages are becoming a very big problem, gasoline prices are almost to the point of being ridiculous, prices of medicines and health care are beyond the reach of many families, and the job market is in the toilet no matter what the "manufactured numbers" show!

There is more hate and fear and distrust of our fellow men than I can ever remember! We have to start finding some way to do something positive about our situation...at least, that's the way I feel!



At my age, the last thing I want to see happen is for our country to get involved in another war. I don't want to see anymore of our troops left in a foreign land. I don't want to see any more politicians getting rich by creating situations where the rich get richer, while the average working folks struggle to make ends meet!

In short, I would like to spend my waning years in peace! Peace for my country, peace for my friends and family, and peace for those in the rest of the world that truly want it!

Coffee on the patio this morning! A little "snakebite" medicine is there on the side in case you want to brace your coffee a bit!

Amen. About all I feel able to do is say a prayer for our country and the world.

Bob said...

I feel the same way. Peace to you and all.

We (our country) seem(s) to be taking care of everyone but ourselves. It's time for us to take care of us.

Hey Beach Bum...
That's all that any of us can do, my friend!

Let's hope that is enough!

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Bob...
All we can do is keep up our hope and welcome what peace we can get hold of!

Thanks so much for coming by today!


Hey Momlady...
How true that is, my friend! How true that is!

Welcome back! Good to have you here again and I appreciate you coming by today!

Hermit Jim!! I'm back from the land of the forgotten. I hear you, everyone around me has got the deer in the headlight look. Things are beginning to crumble around us. That's what prompted me to write Don't panic. http://bit.ly/ePwvtI

Hey Nomad...
Sure is good to see you again! Where you been hiding?

Hard to digest everything that's going on right now. I'm hoping that whole scale panic doesn't start setting in anytime soon!

Oh well, that's why we Prep,right?

Thanks for coming by today!

Since everyone else has coffee by now, I'll just finish what is left of the snakebite medicine.

Hey Catman...
I knew I could count on you, buddy!

Dirty job, but someone has to do it!

Thanks for coming by today!

"Deer in the headlights look" described it exactly. We all know that a deer in headlights look means panic and indecision. Animals in that state of mind are to be wary and cautious of.
Eyes and ears wide open folks...

When it comes to goober-mental thinking I'm beginning to think the word 'lynching' is a good place to start!
