Do you find yourself doing more things by yourself with the current economic situation? For example, my family has been doing more home growing of the food, with the extra food we get from our garden we can it in jars or freeze it for later, just in case we go through worse times in the future. We also do more home cooked meals because it is cheaper than buying them, if we want muffins or cookies, we make them from what we have in the house, not already made from the grocery store. What are you guys doing to save money and conserve energy?

More than energy saving and helping the environment I think that this oil crisis is helping us see what is really important in life. People are cooking more at home, looking for recipes, family members sharing a barbecue night. I see families using their bikes togeteher and exploring nature. Is interesting also that people are discovering the old forgotten business in town ( the small cofee shop, the old town hardare store,the convenient store, my mom's bicycle parts store ETC..... We should see the positive side and find more ways to rescue the love, sharing with family and friends at home and the community. Keep up your good work.
