That REM's 'its the end of the world as we know it" would come, and probably sooner than anyone would think. The "and I feel fine" of it all would depend on a few things. My individual relationship with G-d, our resourcefulness and planning and hopefully, a few trusted folks also passionately committed to surviving.My husband and I have a greenhouse with a room…See More
