Only I was A(n adult? use the term loosely-- i don't wanna grow up!) Male In A Hardware Store...
Just so happens the nearest post orifice is in a hardware store, and Iwas forced FORCED I tell ya to enter therein an hour or so ago-- had to mail the land purchase agreement (YIPPIE!).
They gimmicked me with the ol' display stand set up where you're going to pass it regardless of entrance intent. Now generally I don't fall for advertising ploys such as this-- in fact I often scoff and wonder how many sheeple are wasting washingtons on crap they likely already have and never needed in the first place.
But this was too good to pass up...
All Seeds 1/2 Off Marked Price
Yep, they hit me right in the soft spot. And this ain't one of those deals where they mark the price up 20% and then put it on "sale" for 10% off. Most seed manufacturers print SRP right on the packet. Aside from which, seed prices are something I'm fairly knowledgable about...
I took it as a good sign that, after yesterday's blog on "saving", I was going to the P.O. to mail my land papers and ran into this little gem of a deal.
Then I get home, and lookie what was in in my email box...

Folks...YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
Ironic; I chose the title for this post before I'd even seen the video.
[ A Little Blog-surfing Later]
A REALLY SPECIAL THANKS to MOLLY... All preppers/survivalists MUST visit this site. A PLETHORA of practical information.
I'd been toying of late with the idea of starting a second blog, as, like any human being, I have wide and varied interests. I ultimately decided against it because I believe all life is, or should be, synergistic. I've commented here on reasons for wanting to "get away from it all", from spiritual beliefs to preparing for some Cap'n Tripps-type apocalypsia, to merely wanting to be more healthy and self-sufficient and avoid the McPackaged consumerism.
All the synchronicity of events of late-- purchasing the Ozark property, having days like today, reading all the wonderful views in the blogosphere-- convince me that staying with one blog is the right choice. This is My Song, folks, the cataloged combination of curses, blessings, trials and tribulations that will someday transform the ugly duckling humbly before you into...
[Thanks to all who have and will contribute...]
