So I poked my head out of the bunker the other day and to my surprise the earth is still here. Jeeez and here I was cooped up since Dec 21st in a tiny steel bunker underground rationing my supplies and hoping I could out live the rest of the sorry souls that didn't prepare.

Ok so I am kidding I don't have a bunker and I was out of town for a few weeks without internet. But it is good to see you all are alive and kicking and the world is still here anyway. hehe I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and exciting New Years. Missed you all and hope Santa was good to everyone!

I think the only sad thing about the world having no natural disasters on the 21st is we will all plug along with less concern about our sacred planet than we should have. The doomsayers may have been wrong about the when but, I still suspect humans have a rude awakening before them if we don't all do our part to clean up our acts. Nature is about balance and we are WAY out of balance. We need humanity to start caring more and showing respect for each other and our planet. I hope each of us can do our part to make this world a better place in the comming year. Peace All!

Concur your view wholeheartedly, Duck. Although I readily admit I didn't give a toss when I was younger.

Started to help the world in a modest way last summer:
  • Stopped driving - saves on the usage of precious oil resources.
  • Stopped running the tap when I brushed my teeth, and when I soaped myself during my daily shower - amazing the amount of water already saved.

And there is a spin-off - the fuel bill has halved and the water bill has gone down, too!

Must start casting around for more ways to help out, and if everybody did something similarly small, we might eventually avoid the 'Water World' scenario that most countries appear to have experienced this past year!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

It's small changes like that that that lead to big differences Fletch! I do the same with the teeth brushing thing. In the past I used to run the water the whole time I brushed my teeth. What a waste!

saving water is quite impossible the real problem is growing population as population is rising but our resorces are as it is.
