No SPAM?...who cares... grin

No wheat bagels and multiple Walmarts... cry

Many stores are having early Christmas sales. Take advantage before what you are looking for is gone. Supplies are limited and shipping times outrageous!

The position in the UK remains similar.

Shortages of individual foods but no general food shortage. Butter is short at present.

Propane remains short, even in Summer, as does kerosene. Neither is widely used.

One odd shortage is white coveralls. No shortage of workwear or overalls in general. My theory is that Ukrainians bought up large stocks for use as improvised snow camo. And another layer against the cold.

No shortage of goods on the consumer side here, except perhaps for big ticket items like vehicles.

Inflation is hitting hard, so there is a shortage of affordability, and in necessary foods not just junk food. I'm not sure how low income families are going to manage.

My (excellent) independent mechanic tells me that getting parts for repair is increasingly a nightmare. This is for North American built vehicles as well as others. Dealerships can't get them either. That is a concern across the board.

The sword prices have gone up. The Swiss Guard must be charging more these days to protect the pope with medieval weapons.

Hmm, not sure sword prices have gone up all that much. But I could swear they are shorter than they used to be.

I just tried to purchase an automated electronic defibrillator (AED, zaps one's heart, if needed), and shipping is listed as a 6-8 month delay. Time will tell.

I'm having trouble getting the shelves that match the shelving in my bedroom, and only one store carries them. They are available in Lufkin, the city next to my now permanent home, Nacogdoches, but are currently unavailable for shipping.

Spot shortages of certain foods continue, but no question of any general food shortage.
Tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers are in short supply at present, some supermarkets are limiting purchases. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-64729317

I am finding odd stuff being "no longer available" such as my shaving soap, Williams, which has gone the way of the do-do bird and is nowhere to be found. The same has happened to some of the wife's preferred cosmetics - poof just gone and can't be found anywhere on line or in stores.
