Domi,

LOL is an abbreviation. It means Laughing Out Loud.

Y2K was the term used for the turn of the century (Year Two Thousand) mania that swept much of North America a couple of years back.

In Regards to Your Question about sweetfeed.. I speak No French, just recall a word or two from grand’mere or is it Memier?. Like I said No French Spoken here !!Even though my Great Grand parents came here to New Hampshire from Asbestos Mines Quebec.
Check with you local Feed store. I think my English to French is not quite right, but do the words doux nourrir help you out. The closest I have ever been to the town of Asbestos Mines is was a Fishing trip to Chibougamau Lake in 1977 with my father & his father. I Fished for one week and fell in love { I mean Lust} with the fish camp owners daughter the second week. She spoke a little English and that helped when we had to explain to her mother why even her older brothers could not find us for hours everyday. But there are some things like, Hormones & Teenage Lust that need no language. Boy it was hard enough for me as Senior in High School sharing the cabins double bed with my dad. But to have all those Thoughts/Dreams of her( Dyan)while I was sleeping........ The fishing trip was a Graduation present from my Dad, But I Still have not told him how really special that trip was. But I think he knows. Sorry to get off track . I hope my simple two word translation helps a bit

Y2K type preparations continue by many people, Domi, because of the so-called terrorism plot. But mostly, I believe, Y2K was a wake up call for many people about the dangers of dependency.

It''s said, for instance, that major cities have only about 3-days self sufficiency. That is, if there was some kind of disaster that made it impossible for anything to move in or out of the city, it could only feed itself and supply essential services for three days before the infrastructure fell apart and chaos took over.

An overall dissatisfaction with government and all it does has also fueled much of this. Operating under various names---i.e., the Green Movement; Back To The Land; Homesteading; etc., thousands of people are structuring their lives to be as independent and self-sufficient as possible.

So, yes. The threat of terrorist activity has contributed. But there are other, long term, forces at work that are more fundemental than that.

We raise hogs for ourselves and our customers. The one thing that is most important is extra strong pens! Hogs have serious strength behind them...if they cannot get over a fence, they will just take the fence down.

Rabbits are another good choice for meat.
Hope this helps.
