You paid what for lettuce?

The price of fuel is at record highs, and it's affecting other prices too -- like the cost of food. There's a great discussion about food prices happening right now on iReport.com.

 

Crankers thinks $1.69 is too much for a head of iceberg lettuce . XMan suggests a heavy diet of dried beans . millerlb says a family of 7 can survive on $25 a day . And GeekyCraig says he has changed everything about the way he shops and eats .

 

So, how are food prices affecting you? What are food prices like in your local markets? Share your stories and join the conversation.

SRI SATHYA SAIBABA LIVES IN PRASANTHINILAYAM, FOUR HOURS BY BUS FROM BANGALORE CITY, SOUTH INDIA AND THERE ARE SOME WEBSITES TOO WHICH I CAN GIVE LATER

WISHES;SRI SATHYA SAI BABA SAYS----

LOVE ALL;SERVE ALL;HELP EVER; HURT NEVER

LOVE GIVES AND FORGIVES;

SELF( ISHNESS ) GETS AND FORGETS;

WATCH---- WATCH YOUR---

....WORDS; ACTIONS; THOUGHTS; CHARACTER AND HEART;

FROM THE BOOK OF Lt.Gen.(Retd) M.L.CHIBBER ON SATHYA SAI BABA'S MAHA VAKYA ON LEADERSHIP

LOVE AND LEADERSHIP

DUTY WITHOUT LOVE IS DEPLORABLE

DUTY WITH LOVE IS DESIRABLE

LOVE WITHOUT DUTY IS DIVINE.

DUTY IMPLIES FORCE OR COMPULSION WHILE IS

SPONTANEOUS AND EXPRESSES ITSELF WITHOUT EXTERNAL PROMPTINGS.

LOVE AS THOUGHT IS TRUTH

LOVE AS ACTION IS RIGHT CONDUCT

LOVE AS UNDERSATNDING IS PEACE

LOVE AS FEELING IS NON-VILENCE

A MAN OR WOMAN WHO HAS NO LOVE IN HIM/HER IS AS

BARREN AS A CLOUD WITH NO MOISTURE; A TREE WITH NO

FRUITS OR A COW YIELDING NO MILK; HE IS EVER FAR FROM

GOD AND CAN NEVER EARN HIS GRACE.

MAKE YOUR LIFE A ROSE, THAT SPEAKS IN THE LANGUAGE OF FRAGRANCE.

THE END OF WISDOM IS FREEDOM;

THE END OF CULTURE IS PERFECTION;

THE END OF KNOWLEDGE IS LOVE; AND

THE END OF EDUCATION IS CHARACTER.

HARMONY IN THOUGHTS,WORDS AND ACTION- PL MAINTAIN

LEADERSHIP  : TO BE, TO DO,  TO SEE AND TO TELL

( WHEREAS WE SEE IT IN REVERSE ORDER NOWADAYS!!!)

--HAPPINESS = NUMBER OF DESIRES FULFILLED DIVIDED BY NUMBER OF DESIRES ENTERTAINED

SO, PLACE A CEILING ON DESIRES AND BE HAPPY

LESS LUGGAGE, MORE COMFORT, EASY JOURNEY ( BY TRAIN AND IN LIFE TOO )

SATYAM VADA( FOLLOW TRUTH) AND DHARMAM CHARA( FOLLOW YOUR FAITH )

YOU CAN BUY A BED, BUT NOT SLEEP

YOU CAN BUY A BOOK, BUT NOT BRAINS

YOU CAN BUY FOOD, BUT NOT (CONQUER) HUNGER

YOU CAN BUY CLOTHES, BUT NOT BEAUTY

YOU CAN BUY MEDICINES, BUT NOT HEALTH

YOU CAN BUY A HOUSE, BUT NOT HOME

YOU CAN BUY LUXURIES, BUT NOT HAPPINESS

YOU CAN BUY A TEMPLE, BUT NOT GOD

Is it not possible to convert sea water for irrigation purpose and develop on the agricultural front or lay down under water tubs like the oil pipes and transfer water from regions like Holland to various parts near by where there is need for water that can be used for irrigation purpose.  Why on oil and fuel or optic cables and why not something like this. 

I don't know if I make sense but is it possible.

Regards,

Raj Reddy.

Top 10 Ways I Save Money in this Ridiculous Economy!!

 

1) Own your assets instead of renting and/or leasing

2) Carpool

3) Take banks up on offers for $50 or $100 bonuses when you open a new checking account. Most banks allow you to maintain a small minimum balance(perhaps $500) and often the time limit for keeping the account is only a few months. Open several of these accounts each year and switch them when allowed.

4) Use coupons (I save an average of 15-20% each time at the grocery store)

5) Instead of going to an insurance agent who takes a cut or the companies that have quotas to make for certain areas, check out this site that tracks good deals: http://www.insuremeonline.com/home/index.cfm

6) Exercise or play a sport for entertainment instead of going to the mall or the movies

7) Drink a glass of milk or eat an apple each time you're hungry for a snack instead of dropping $4-5 on a value meal.

8) Don't get in credit card debt! Be willing to eat peanut-butter and jelly for a month straight rather than fall into the death cycle of credit card debt...

9) Watch for sales at outlet stores like Kohls and TJ Maxx. You can score big on already discounted name-brand clothes when they put on 30% off sales.

10)Make it a concrete rule to put 20% of each paycheck into a savings account.

11**) Give 10% of your earnings to charity or as a tithe to your church/religious institution. It all comes back in the end.

I invented Virtual Shopping 'Real' by creating biz-website(& its virtual shopping mall)

under www.permaID.com/biz-phone/video-clip/

 

Shop around online before you jump-in to drive or use Home Delivery Service by Safeway.com etc, by bungling up with your next orders. they deliver free if your order is more than $100 per order.
