Orgasmic Birth

One time, I read that child birth could be painless. I told my friend if I found this to be the case that I would let her know. Okay, no I definitely did not have a painless delivery. But now I heard that an orgasmic birth is a possibility. I wonder. Is that possible?
www.orgasmicbirth.com There is a documentary film that is being shown regarding orgasmic birth. It looks promising!

Energy Waste

Right now or when you get a chance -today, unplug everything in your house except your refrigerator. Before you do this, go check how fast your electric meter is spinning. Unplug everything and check again. I hope you will now be able to read the numbers or words on the disc. My recollection is that disc spins pretty fast.
It is unbelievable how much energy is being used / wasted on a daily basis.
Many items are left on 24 hours a day for convenience. Cell phones chargers eat up power even when not in use. That old VCR flashing 12:00 probably is using some power. Land line phones sit on chargers, cameras and video cameras are powered by rechargeable batteries. The dust buster and the cat's water bowl are plugged in. Of course, the computer and the clocks are plugged in.
Wouldn't it be nice to flick a switch and all the power in the room is turned off? What else can we find? Lights turned on during the day. We can take advantage of the sunlight to illuminate our homes during the day.
Let's conserve power now. Don't forget to check those meters.

Preparing for a Famine

This post is partly in response to Happy Rock's post regarding the Dow tumbling. Happy Rock has been preparing a long time for a famine. He is debt free and saving for a new house. He has a vision of what he wants for his life and his family's life. Bravo to Happy Rock for being so prepared to take on this economic crisis.
It reminds me of Joseph preparing Egypt for a famine. They grew and stored all they could so that when the lean times came they were prepared.
Normally, I have heard that new companies are the ones that fail during these challenging times. Now the companies that are falling apart have been around for decades.
How can we continue forward? Folks, the sky might not be falling but the famine is coming. Housing prices continue to drop and the interest rates for savings are minimal.
Please share your tips on how to stay ahead in this struggling economy.
