  • Coffee and Sugar Shortage Coming

    Expect coffe and sugar to increase in price due to poor crops. Stock up if practical for you and you need these items. From the Financial Times...

    Wife says we need to make a run to Costco or Sam's Club.

    I hear that they are having problems with the wheat crop also. WalMart had flour for $2 a 5# bag for a month now. Don't think that's going to last much longer.

        I have to have my coffee. (lol)I do realize that there may come a day when I won't have it but I keep at least 6 month supply on hand. ( I am going for 12 next payday) The prices here kind of go up and down at present. Normaly about every 2 or 3 weeks it will go one sale at about $5.87 for the 2.5lb (I think about 2.5#) plastic bucket Maxell house DARK. It has a regular price of about $9 or $10. Then the Folgers will go on sale. We go through one a month. Shelf life (expr. date) is always pretty good, but if I every run out of coffee I don't care about the experation date on it. Brew it twice and hope for the best. I have had a cup or two of instant that I know was at least 8 years old in CRats. Did'nt bother me.

          Now you're just telling us you're older than dirt. C-Rations indeed.

          Personally, I thought they were pretty good as long as you didn't open the can and get the end full of grease first.

            Nothing like a can of bubbling, boiling can of pork "fat" disc to get your day started LT. All the friuts were good and the condiments as well. I hated the Ham and eggs though. The 8 year old "tell - tell" was on the Skhetti and Franks. Not beans and franks, Spaghettii and franks they ran them for 2 years with 72 being the last run. (laugh) Now I am felling old.. Thanks Skowl:cool:

              Okay...

              Ham and MF's were absolutely disgusting. Ham and Eggs okay so long as you have the cheese spread to go with it. John Wayne bars were excellent. Beef slice with potatoes and gravy (here is the part about the grease) as long as you either heat them up or open the "right" end. Pork slices okay. Canned fruit was also great stuff. Can't remember the rest but okay as I recall. It's been a long, long, long time since I opened one to eat.

                Never eat the meat on a cold morning. Fruit.. Okay! I can't remember much either. Bad thoughts and good thoughts all turn into a good memorey or two over time. Good thing.
                Hold on too the AZ,.. LT it is a wonderful place.

                  I was not a Lieutenant. I was a Warrant Officer and they called me "Chief". Several people that knew me back when still call me that.
