Foodie, the Realist
I was talking with Foodie about all of this Ebola stuff - and I wanted to know what he thought. The husband can get caught up in that doomsday prepper crowd. We watched that show for fun and then I found, he was really taking to it and I am sorry I won't live like that! I'm all for preparing for the winter or for the cold and flu season - have some food stocked up for those times and when we lived down in the SF Bay area, we had earthquake supplies, because that was a very real threat. Ebola to me, is still a long shot and I am not ready to put forth any effort, in actually doing anything. Now granted, I won't be traveling to Western Africa anytime soon - OKAY I'll throw in the whole Continent of Africa for safe measure.
Foodie mentioned that I should stop and really think about what our state water shortage may develop into and what that could mean - financially and economically to this state. He was saying if we don't get any rain and snow by the end of the year, the powers that manage our water may ration us to the point where it will be hard to live like we have - showers once a week, only allowing 80 gallons - I forget if he said a month or a day. So yeah, he is right. You can prepare for one thing, and WHAM, something else comes up and pulls the rug out from under you. Our water woes are more threatening to us, than Ebola is.
I know I was thinking last night - that back in the old days, what could our ancestors actually do to prevent polio when that was spreading - and all the other diseases that have come through and killed many. Boy they were a lot stronger back then than we are today.
Meanwhile I baked a apple pie last night and it was so good.
