THIS POST WAS WRITTEN BEFORE THE TERRIBLE TRAGEDY THAT RECENTLY OCCURRED IN NAPAL.I WOULD NEVER MAKE LIGHT OF THE HEART-WRENCHING SUFFERING THAT IS BEING FELT BY THE MANY VICTIMS OF THE EARTHQUAKE. MY HEART GOES OUT, AS I'M SURE DOES EVERYONE'S.
1-Are You Prepared?
2-Are You Prepared?
2- How Far Do You Think I Can Run With A Heavy Backpack On, Carrying My Sewing Machine?

We could have been warm, fed, watered warm, fed, wateredwarm, fed, watered warm, fed, watered and prepared for any minor cuts or scrapes, had it not been for Amazon.
Yesterday night, I found that they refused to allow me to purchase anything until I signed in. [I hate signing in anywhere. Now I find I have to sign in to just to buy something, as a customer? When did this start?] Sure I could have gotten it elsewhere. But that’s not the point.
