Cars and Emergency supplies
I just read a statistic on cars. The USA has 845 cars for every 1000 people. That is almost a car for everyone in the USA (Men, women and children.) Japan is next with 595 cars per 1000 people. On the other hand Chinese folk don’t spend their money on cars their ratio is 37 cars for every 1000 people.
A load of Packards
I don’t know what it means other than many houses have 4 or 5 cars per household. My Sherry grew up with no family car. They walked to town and rode the bus for trips.
A load of Buicks
WE walked through the new housing development yesterday, and already the garages are full of STUFF and many cars are outside blocking the sidewalks. Every house has at least 2 newer cars some three. We love cars, us Americans.
A load of Oldsmobiles
One other statistic, 48 out of every 100 homes have no emergency supplies. WE have no long term supplies ourselves. But enough food to last a few weeks I guess. I am sure they’re talking about ‘prepared emergency supplies’, so I guess we fall into the ‘have nots’ in that case.
I know back when mama canned and daddy raised a hog every year, we had a lot put back.
Do you think it is important to have 3-4 months’ supply of emergency supplies in your home?
Now itis hard for me to think that a 1975 anything is an antique!
