My response to everything that is happening is to continue prepping. Food stuffs are my biggest concern. Britain is already seeing food shortages. Retirement in 3 months!

Since we discussed Linux earlier in this thread, I thought I would append something that may interest. I found a beautifully streamlined Linux variant that is faster and lighter than any I've evern seen, while being highly functional and intutitive.
