More Empty Shelves At Local Wal-Mart

 Folks now is the time to buy up some extra grocery items, a food shortage is in the making right now. I was in the grocery store business for a long time, and I still have friends higher up in the supermarket industry that tells me it’s as bad as they have seen it.  It’s a combination of things causing the shortage and I won’t go into all that here, but be prepared, this is much more than just toilet paper this time.

Last week I did a video at a local Wal-Mart and the shelves there were starting to look empty.  Today I went to the other local Wal-Mart and I took some pictures but before you watch the video below let me say this;

I’m not doing these videos to scare anybody. I don’t want you to be scared; I want you to be prepared.  I have been prepping as they say for a few weeks now, and I try to add a few extra items to the food pantry every week. If you haven’t started yet, I invite you to start now, it’s not too late, and I urge you to start before it is too late. Many items won’t be available much longer and you can count on prices going up, so anything you can buy now and put away will save you money later on.

Do what you can folks to be prepared.  Now watch the video and feel free to subscribe to my channel so you can see all my videos. It costs nothing, there is absolutely no obligation, and nobody will bug you with emails or the like. Thanks.

How To Hide Those Ugly Backyard Buckets


I posted a youtube video this morning on how to hide your bucket planters. If you have ugly buckets or just don’t want to advertise for Home Depot or Lowes in your backyard it’s easy to hide them.  I simply build a box using picket fence boards to go around the buckets. For me, picket fence boards are much cheaper than plywood. Picket fence boards and scrap 2x4’s make a good-looking planter box. You don’t need a bottom, just sides.

The Cow Does Not Give Milk

 A farmer used to say to his children when they were young: “When you all reach the age of 12 I will tell you the secret of life. One day when the oldest turned 12, he nervously asked his father what was the secret of life. The father replied that he was going to tell him, but that he should not reveal it to his brothers.”

The Farmer said, the secret of life is this: “The cow does not give milk”

"What are you saying” asked the confused boy?

The farmer repeated, “The cow does not give milk” “You have to milk it. You have to get up at 4 in the morning, go to the field, walk through the corral full of manure, tie the tail, stagger the legs of the cow, sit on the stool, place the bucket under the cow and do the work yourself.”

That is the secret of life, the cow does not give milk. You milk her or you don't get milk. There is this generation that thinks that cows GIVE milk. They think that things are automatic and free: their mentality is that if "I wish, I ask and I obtain."

They have been accustomed to getting whatever they want the easy way. But no, life is not a matter of wishing, asking, and obtaining. The things that one receives are the effort of what one does. Happiness is the result of effort. Lack of effort creates frustration.

So Always Remember,  "Cows don't give milk; you have to work for it."

So, share with your children from a young age the secret of life, so they don't grow up with the mentality that the government, their parents or their cute little faces are going to give them everything they need in life.
