It means I deleted it, lol.
Anyway...I keep imagining /that/ face when she looked up and saw my stare. I'm not sure how to describe it...
It seemed unusual to me.
Granted, there's not been a lot of girls I've looked at in that particular way. In fact, there's been NO ONE I've looked at in /that/ particular way.
So, I guess new territory is something I'd expect to encounter.
I don't even really know how to describe it. But it was distinctive.
It just seemed so unusual. Like someone mesmerized, delighted and surprised at the same time. But, it was unusual... like someone gone just a little psycho in their own little world. I did take it as a "good sign", but it kind of freaked me out a little, like holy crap... you think you're talking to someone normal here... but then... /bam/.... psycho mode activated. But I can tell it wasn't really 'psycho' coming out, it was an instinctive reaction core to her innermost personality for that particular kind of situation. And it kind of freaked me out a little.
Granted, the way I looked wasn't particularly normal either. At least not for me, it might be for angelina jolie. Even then, she doesn't have the angle nor intensity I had.
She soon after widened her mouth a little and looked downward left and right, as if utterly shocked by what she was seeing. She might've been panicking and thinking "What do I do now?! I really don't want to screw this up.", lol.
I want to say she looked like a changeling in that moment, but I can't seem to find the kind of image I'm looking for.
I can tell the local mexican grocery is feeling the slowdown.They added more chicken and beans to my meal, without asking me first, and changed me $5.25 for it.I was perfectly OK given how much I worked yesterday, but the fact she was overcharging me without blushing tells me they're feeling it and they think me, el gringo, tienes los dineros. And the guys there, who apparently didn't get their by car, were looking at me as if they were wanting to challenge me. Oh, don't tell me, we're starting to fight over scraps now, lol.
Anyhoo, yeah, lots of signs that it's hitting this part.
I don't know if it's temporary, like a month or so, or if it's going to last a little while. Seems like "summer slow downs" have happened in the past, it's just funny I never really noticed one last year. I guess I'd have to look at historical sales charts. It seems like I remember around this time of year, my sales were exploding and I'm not really seeing the segue into exploding sales this year.
I looked and... yes... I see the $/view didn't really change this time last year. And, yes, that's precisely what I've seen in the last month. A $/view that's a third of what it was last year, and even last month, and seems like it might still be declining. $/view is important because this tells you that sales aren't being affected by /not being seen/, but because /not being purchased/.
It's important to shift to competing on price point and shifting to 'necessary' goods (Possibly 'value-added' necessary goods.) during these parsimonious times. It's also particularly important to tightly control expenses.
I think corn and beans might be my most promising calorie crops in this area. Seeing that the jamestown settlers were allotted 5 acres per settler, I wonder how much I can realistically expect from 7000 sq ft.(.16 acres)? I see that bean,corn and tomato salads are common, suggesting it's a good combination. I know it's a "complete protein source".(Mixing corn with a legume).

Every time legumes like beans, lentils, and peanuts are combined with grains like wheat, rice, and corn, a complete protein is born.
I'm minimizing generator use where practical. Energy conservation.
I wonder what kind of watermelon those "personal watermelons" in the store are? I'd prefer to have many mini-watermelons to a few large watermelons with the area I have to work with.
On second thought, I think maybe I'll just purchase beans from the store (Cheap enough), and I'll grow corn and tomatos. Those two are not really /that/ cheap, lol.
I wonder if container growing would be recommended for tomatos? Might slow down/halt disease transmission.
Looks like aphids are a problem with tomato plants. Will learn more.

Looks like a family of 6 could survive on an acre of potatos. So if I grew only potatos, I could probably do it. Looks like the kind of corn recommended is flent/dent corn (non-sweet corn), because it easily stored ( http://www.realworldsurvivor.com/2014/1 ... ard-squash
). But, regular sweet corn is also possible to store by canning it. I just don't know how they get away with it in the saltless cans.

Doesn't look like a high amount of salt is necessary. This is good.
I figure with devoting most of it to sweet corn, I could pare it with store-purchased beans and that should be enough calories. I would want to combine with enough vegetables (Spinach, etc.) to maintain a healthier dietary balance - keep you feel longer and bring own the insulin load. I'm not sure if I want to grow peanuts...
I have a strong feeling the potential carb output of my land is a bit more than ireland. With longer periods of "good sun", and even good enough sun during the winter for pea production,I think the total annual carb output is likely potentially higher.
Look.... looks like walmart stapled a "We're hiring" card on my latest banana receipt. Is this the opportunity I've been looking for? lol. Temporary work sounds like "Quick to hire" fulltime work(?), which sounds good to me. I notice they put on their "Opportunities to become a permanent store associate" as if it was some desireable, commonly sought-for opportunity in the area. If becoming a walmart employee in the area is hard, that suggests job searching might be a little harder than I thought it should. But, I know I can't read too much into these generic corporate cards.
I think they are already hired, because I believe I saw them remodeling/mass-restocking not too long ago. And this receipt is 9 days old. I won't be able to apply for another 7 days or so, I'm getting the RV on the driveway tomorrow, at least first attempt, assuming it doesn't rain tonight.Then need to pick up t-posts from steinhauser (Neighbor recommended) and try to find suitable craigslist t-posts.
I figure the front will be 10 footers. (75/12= 6 in front)
The sides will be 6 foot, except for the middle one, which would be 8 ft. (56/12 = 4.7-> , so 6,8,6,8(corner))
The back will be all 6s, except the middle, which would be 8. (8,6,6,8,6,6,8)
So looking at
I can get the 6s on craigslist, but 10s and 8s would need to be store purchased. Not a final design.
And, I see, to protect plants from low temperatures (Frost temperatures), they have frost blankets. Oh cool, that might help keep the more sensitive vegetable plants from dying due to excessively cold overnight temperatures (Like the spinach and english peas).
