A Generation That Appreciated Everything

My fondest childhood memories are from visiting my grandparent’s farm near Waco, Texas.  They came from a generation that appreciated everything they had.  Their farmhouse had three pipes coming inside from the pump, no working toilet, and no water heater.  The faithful outhouse was the only “facilities” they had for years.  My uncle eventually bought a “camp toilet” for us kids to use at night so we wouldn’t have to go outside with the critters.

Is America Becoming Venezuela?

A BIT OF HISTORY

From the early 1950s until the early 1980s, Venezuela experienced a robust economy and attracted many immigrants. President Carlos Andres Perez presided over the highest standard of living of any country in Latin America until the oil bust in the 1980s.  At that time, the economy began to contract, and inflation spiked to 84%. In 1996, it grew to 99%. In 1998, at a time of Venezuelan discontent, Hugo Chavez was elected as the 64th president of Venezuela. Before becoming president, Chavez spent two years prison for trying to overthrow Perez.  There he learned political power was more effective than military might and formed a new political party,

Getting Prepared

Planning Ahead!

 

When this kind of disaster strikes and you don’t have a contingency plan in place, you’re left floundering or at the mercy of FEMA or The Red Cross.

I’m spending lots of time watching the terrible flooding in the Houston area, and my heart is breaking for all who are being affected by this disaster.

Although I’m extremely impressed by the response of the Harris County Emergency Management Office and the first responders assisting people stranded in the County, I prefer to be dependent on myself.
 
Soon I’ll be posting a free contingency plan template on my blog that I hope will help those of you not prepared for a disaster. I’ll notify you when I post it, and I beg you please, please, please begin putting your plan into action.
