    The article mentioned traveling, crawling, flying and moving.

    I know international trade has been around since Marco Polo and beyond, but the complexities in the NYT article do speak to the value of local economies.

    May go into 2023.

    When you can’t get parts for your car or an appliance, that’s when it might start to bite.

    Greets to all from Nogales, AZ. Something that has me creeped out is reading that medication shortages are coming. I'm so lucky to live in a border state as many medications are manufactured in Mexico and on this long weekend I crossed into Mexico and it seems that most meds are still available though I did have to go to several phamacies to find indomethacin. And there are still supply chain problems. Food is available though not all ingredients so eating out is a matter of what's available, not what you'd prefer to order. I did not see any bare shelves in Mexico as of yet, though. Rob

    We have a broken dishwasher- new one was easy to purchase, unlike the refrigerator we needed this is a standard size.

    We just had to buy a new dishwasher because we couldn't get the parts for our old one. I much preferred what we had. We ended up with a cheapie that does the job but isn't anywhere near as nice as the old one.

    Apparently the paving stones for the new patio came in, but still waiting on the decking for the porches.
