Granny Miller has some cogent thoughts on how we live – and I’m tickled that her house looks quite a bit like my house, although better organized than I am at present. We are not waiting for the hammer to drop, or the war to come ashore, or the zombies to invade – we are just living a normal life as people have always lived. We stock up because it is economical, healthy and prudent – not because we are expecting our food supplies to be cut off tomorrow. We are looking for alternatives to on-the-grid power not because we are afraid of losing our heat and lights, but because the grid is expensive and wasteful. And we don’t own any guns. There’s no bug-out shelter. There are no trip wires to tell us if we have invaders. (We are even polite to the Witnesses and Mormons who very rarely wander down our dirt road.) We are farmers and crofters, not homesteaders, preppers, or survivalists. We are Christians living a basic, rural life.
