Cold again. Maybe some rain. Probably grey and overcast, but I’ll be inside anyway, just like yesterday. 3pm felt like 6 pm …
I was in class all day, then home. Didn’t get much done other than that. Sometimes it be that way.
Plan for today is the same.
Plan for Monday involves some grocery shopping.
Also loading up some bins for a local auction. I’ve got a lot of that to do.
Meanwhile, the players continue their dance. The ‘western’ allies voted to cut Russia off from SWIFT, but Russia’s been planning for that for some time. We’ll see how that plays out. Could turn out to be the end of SWIFT and the petrodollar. Force people to come up with an alternative to your fully captured system, and when they do, you are a dead system walking.
It’s important to remember that none of the things we expect as “the way things are” are actually written in stone. There was a time before the Fed. There was a time before fractional reserve banking. There was a time before NATO. A time before just about anything you care to name, and there can and WILL be a time AFTER too.
Whatever is coming after, that’s what I intend to see, and get through, and get my kids through.
Stack the things. All the things.
