This is work/school DAY 1.

And it is off to a rocky start, already, the market took a breather...and the FED cut the prime to almost zero, and a new stimulus plan, not sure if that includes cash as it did in the Obama one, not sure if anyone really knows, we have to wait and see what congress does.

Flour and sugar are commodities which could lead to abrupt price changes, and some gov't control. Wheat exchanges and fair trade have to exist, or else Uncle Sam could under emergency conditions take control of the commodities which are deemed essential as food for freedom.

We certainly hope that the food supply chain remains robust and there is enough stock in the systems to get us through. But it is an EMOTIONAL time, and many buying decisions are made irrationally.

Let's use BREAD/FLOUR as one of SowPub indicators as to how the world is faring.

What is the Bread situation in your area?

And what other things do we want to keep an eye on? Here in Cuyahoga Falls, they've added workers at GOJO mfg plant, they make PURELL hand sanitizer, I have friends who work there...and one other thing to watch is VINEGAR, both white and cider types. I'll discuss this a little further down the road.

OK. Correspondents get ready to let us know what is happening in your area.

Wife went to the local Walmart for St. Paddy dinner goods.

Here's the report:

No rye bread.... no sauerkraut... plenty of corned beef... lots of regular bread...

Store was packed at 7 AM....

When I was there yesterday, I noticed that they had boatloads of Ramen noodles for about 10 cents a pack... You can do a lot with those little noodles !

Fortunately, I was raised by my grandparents and learned how to cook with the basics and have always had a pantry with standard items to create stews, baked goods, and other things like biscuits and gravy. (Yum)

In any case, reporting from the front lines.
