    Human nature, human nature dictates that our pendulum will swing wide. So as we come down from this lock down swing what will the other swing up look like?
    I'm predicting more of a big item buying spree over stadium packed sports frenzy. Electronics, vehicals, Rv's . The up tic of all quarantine type items like TP, alcohol,good chlorine bleech, rubber gloves ect... hoarding the first few months. Freezers,and yes generators or home solar, wind units
    What do you think our reaction will be in a post lock down

    I'm just nervous that the government and it's officials will not relinquish the powers they have obtained in the name of terror

    We are already building a new house, seems like forever ago when we started, and have included solar water heating and I am currently looking at wind generator's. I think we are going to bite the bullet and have a professional greenhouse built. I can tell you one thing, I'll never chase antlers again. If its brown it's down and at the processor's.

    Your new house doesn't have a designated butcher room? With the wild bacon roaming around in your area I would never buy meat again!

    Less emphasis on equity and more on liquidity.

    I will take a deep breath and there will be a Sunday dinner at the ranch all the kids and their spouses and the grandson. I don't pray but I will have a mindful thought and be very grateful for being together again.

    I hope to go to an AAU basketball tourney with my son.

    I am going to add solar power to my house with the Tesla home battery. This with my geny should keep me powered if we lose it.

    I havent even ridden in the car with my kids for weeks. That would be nice. To just be able to take them somewhere.

    Well, I am having a 30'x60' steel building built and do want to install a walk in cooler but at this point I'm just going to be happy when it's done and we can move. And I have been successful at eradicating hogs around the farm so not so much free bacon walking around these days. But I do plan on raising a few hogs a year from here on out.
