Things that keep

I agree it is time to stockpile. At the very least, rice, beans, dried spices and anything else that will keep for a year or more without freezing. I have also filled our freezer with chicken and beef. The cattlemen have been slaughtering their herds due to the high cost of grain so there has been a temporary glut; this will be followed by shortages for the same reason (high grain prices), so I figured the time to stock up is now.

Skittles....
When I was a little kid, we planted time capsules at a new school and then opened them up 25 years later. Most of that stuff, was just like that. Something that meant very little and kind of freaked us all out.

Almost everything becomes irrelevant as time passes. we learn knew, and sometimes better ways of overcoming problems. Sometimes our solutions create new and more difficult problems (as a race, we're really good at that). There is only one thing that I know is an absolute constant: I get better looking every day.

Is your last name Gray, by chance?

The version I remember was Mac Davis, Chief.
