Blessings Shadowstalker,

Here is another thread with some additional information regarding SSI COLA

Big Cuts in Medicare and Medicaid Coming

Excerpt POST #12

It's official - there will be no Social Security COLA through 2012- and I don't mean an unsatisfying beveage to wash down your government cheese.

POST #11

...It would be wise to find a book telling you what plants and things are edible and healthy so those that need it will have an option.

SEASHORE: We members should be posting any ideas like this one that we can come up with... We know we have a horrible situation and we're going to have to do whatever we can to help each other.

Blessings Seashore,

I just found out the delicate wood violet flower is edible (add to salads and make jams) and packed with Vitamin C (5 times more than oranges) (Vitamin A and Antioxidant anthocyanin), yum (ate a few yesterday), they are just popping up here now. I haven't checked out to see how they can be dried and still maintain nutritional value for future use.
