*sip of hot a.m. coffee*
Yep, it’s Sunday morning, my once-a-week lazy post is today. Why? Because I’m entitled to it, damn it! I have a RIGHT to chill! Thank God for the blogger union. Without them we’d be working 24/7 without EVER having a break.
Chill . . . yeah, that’s an idea for a post! The economy is lousy, the cost of heating oil creates more chills than heat, Iran is still working on a nuke juice bomb, and North Korea . . . who the hell knows what they’re up to these days. There’s enough paranoia around to make the Dalai Llama tremble in fear. Okay, maybe not quite that much, but either way, now is a good time to learn some stress reduction techniques – if you’re prone to stress. Hell, for all I know maybe you’re just begging for the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI). But if it happens, you’ll be stressed. Learn coping mechanisms now. Here are some suggestions:
- learn to say “no” – better yet, learn to say “Hell, no!”
- avoid stressful people, stress begets stress
- cut the to-do list
- talk about your feelings – LOL – yeah, that’s it
- this one is better – be more assertive, deal with shit head on
- look at the bright side – Doomsday hasn’t hit . . yet
- laugh for crying out loud
- eat a healthy diet – makes a huge difference, grow your own veggies and eat from your backyard
caffeine andsugar intake
- don’t be a pathetic stress pansy, kick stress straight in the ass, don’t take that crap!
That’s all you get, it’s my chill pill day. Betty, the SHTFblog survival babe is posting tomorrow.

BTW: anyone see this article on why food prices are up? I found this part particularly interesting:
According to Reuters, Argentina, the world’s fourth largest wheat exporter, has imposed a ban on wheat exports until April 8, in order to, in the words of the country’s Agriculture Secretariat, “keep local supplies from being affected.”
Bolivia, Honduras, and Pakistan have banned wheat or corn exports, while China has imposed or increased export taxes on wheat, corn, barley, oats and soybeans, in order to deter exports of those commodities.
What that means to me is WHEN there is a very SERIOUS global food shortage, countries will quickly protect their own. Those that don’t have what they need to help their population will look to TAKE what other countries have, leading to war, mayhem and an escalation in the catastrophe.

Here is another article on the story: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23656329/
It would appear that John McCain signed a “friend-of-the-court” statement urging the court to rule in favor of an individual’s right to own a firearm, whereas Clinton and Obama did not.
