Yes Freeman, What can we expect in the next year,--- I don't have much prosperity now, but my truck wil be paid off in December, and that will free up about $300 a month, -but the electric bill is going up that much,-- it looks like. I really expect to see things get worse,and worse. I am thinking the ecomany will colasape in 2011 or 2012, It wont take too much for it to happen. Maybe a war srarting with Iran,- and cutting off oil from the Persain gulf to the world. or China thinking the US is so deep in dept that we can't get out. I don't know just what they could do to destroy us, owning so much of our dept, but I bet they do. I think the bottom is going to fall out, maybe 2012, or maybe anytime. I wish I could get better prepared. I was thinking this morning that it would be nice to have enough solar panels to run a couple of freezers and refrigerators. I suppose we need to make a list of pritorities.
