The Company Christmas Party

Well, I took a lot of cheeses, crackers, meats out there for hors D'ouevres.  Well liked, yes, but some of the dishes that other people brought were absolutely amazing.  Think of 20 dishes that are family secrets handed down for generations all showing up at the same place, think the party I was at tonight.

I freely admit I WAY overate.  Fried turkey; Beef rib rack; Pasoli; all kinds of stuff that was absolutely amazing.

Some economists are making statements that eventually, this whole thing is going to crash.  We will end up in financial/monetary crisis and then what?  The collapse of our government?   How does government function without money…
