The big-wigs up at Wall Street have finally figured out what we knew weeks, if not months ago..... We're in a Depression.

The only difference this time, is Europe is not on the verge of War, and ALL the countries Around The World are having banks fail at break-neck speed.

We may escape being owned by China and Japan when it's over, but only because their own banks are failing as fast, or faster as our own.

[the rest of my opinions are not "child/family friendly" and therefore, I'll hush]

So how many of us are already thinking of expanding their coops and runs and ordering more chicks first thing next year? (Shhhh, I haven't told my husband yet...)

I've gotten people addicted to my eggs, so I guess it's time start charging a little and build a business.

(And I haven't told hubby yet, either....)

My heart goes out to you all so much , the Lord has filled my heart with a love for others so deeply you have know idea how I hate to hear you say you are scared. Being scared is an awful feeling. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil. Walk with God and Talk with God, He will hear your cry and take away your fear. I know it is narural to worry, I have worries about different things as well. Trust in the Lord things may get tougher for everyone but, love the Lord and love one another we will all be just fine. God Bless!

Technically and historically...we are not in a depression. We made mistakes the last depression....the feds never stepped in....which caused the depression in the 30's. We are in a deep....very deep recession....and also in an election year. It will be rocky...but have faith folks. It will rebound....we are smarter this time around....the bailout will work and restore our economy...and our country will belong to the American citizens...not the chinese.
ITS all good folks...lets not panic yet.

I'm not afraid and not panicking. Just trying to prepare for the worst. No matter what you label it, we have a long hard haul ahead of us.
