It’s a New Year – 2015 in Review

A great deal has happened this past year. Forgive my pessimism but I feel most of it was bad. Here are just a few things that I wanted to share – and of course add my own snarky comments.

One thing to be grateful for365 days left in Obama’s presidency

Man made disaster, and they are not done yetApril 1 California Governor Jerry Brown imposes mandatory water restrictions as the state’s historic drought continues to worsen, reducing water use by 25 percent.

Why I’m a Prepper, reason #8 –  April 25 – A 7.8-magnitude earthquake strikes Nepal, near Kathmandu, killing more than 8,000 people and injuring 17,866. Just weeks later on May 12 a second 7.3-magnitude earthquake strikes the country.

You may have noticed the price of a dozen eggs has doubled (in some cases tripled) over the last couple of months. There are two major factors causing this (depending upon where you live.)

  1. Avian Flu

Egg production in the central United States has been hit hard by the avian flu. wiselywoven - Hen MorgueFile Poultry in Minnesota and Iowa have been hardest hit.

How big is the problem? 32 million chickens in the Midwest alone, most of them involved in “liquid egg products.” Liquid egg is used in the food service and food manufacturing industries as well as restaurants across the country. As this source becomes scarcer, many reach out to buy whole eggs to fill the shortage. It becomes a very simple case of supply and demand driving up the cost of eggs in your local supermarket.

  1. Government Regulation

This is one aspect few are talking about. At the beginning of the year California Proposition 2 went into effect.
