    I can't say I've noticed any sales on red meat, but as I'm at the mercy of grocery delivery, I don't expect much. Bacon and butter seem to have increased in price, as has heavy cream. Prices seem to have stabilized here. Pastured eggs go for about $6 a dozen.

    Our local Chamber of Commerce just sent out its invoice for yearly commercial membership fees.

    They *doubled* it!

    My state has just informed my county that it should raise all property taxes by 43%.

    I wonder what local authorities will do with the windfalls of tax income. Property tax increases have been big in the local news here, but nothing about spending the new money.

    Except many mobile home parks are being bought up by investors. Thus no control over rising lot fees unless you can find a community owned park.

    Unfortunately. There's a nice one nearby where you own the lot your home sits on.

    The NIMBYs and environmentalists have been very very successful the past 30 years here at making any sort of mobile home park illegal to develop.

    They also whine and complain about the terribly high cost of housing here, and their difficulty in finding tradespeople.

    I'm sure these two issues are not connected....

    I've wondered why there aren't more manufactured home neighborhoods being built; it seems they would provide an alternative to condos for many of us.
