It's times like this I'm so grateful we have nothing to do with national or international finances. Because my goodness, today the stock market got slammed.
A lot of people lost a lot of money, and people around the world are feeling jittery and unsettled.
No one knows what Monday will bring, of course. But one thing's for sure, those jars of peaches I canned up this week are looking better and better.
These are the kinds of events that explain why we've spent the last few years investing our money in tangibles. Bees, cattle, garden, chickens...at the moment they're more stable than the stock market.
