Nick's Niche: Maintenance--now more than ever!
As I write this, I am reflecting that a year has gone by since the biggest economic recession since 1929 started. The pundits have not dubbed this downturn a "Depression" as they did in 1929, but it sure seems pretty
"Great" to many people. It certainly is the scariest thing my generation has ever seen.
I remember my parents and grandparents talking about the Great Depression with stories of how they pulled through as a family and became “stronger” for the effort. They certainly did not take money for granted after that and learned that saving for a rainy day and reusing clothing, appliances, car tires…whatever, was prudent.
