"to Barbara re: connecting with other Doves"
We are a scattered lot, aren't we? Seems we
do have a few of us in California though, but really...what good would
it do unless we were within walking distance?
I'm not trying to
be all doom and gloom, but if things really got bad before the Lord
comes, if our government pulls the plug on us the way Egypt did, we'd
be sunk. I was just thinking that I need to talk to my tech savvy son
to see if he has any ideas if our internet/phones went down. He's over
on the Central Coast in CA...about a 2.5 hr. drive from us. If
something major happened, like an EMP 'bomb' of some kind, HAARP doing
is't mischief, or even something 'natural', like a major solar flare
that knocked out all electricity, we'd be thrown back 100 years!

I was thinking about the communications thing, and
read that people within a certain distance would be able to use long
range 'walkie talkies', but they'd have to be kept inside protective
boxes so they'd work in case of EMPs (which our own country could use
against us in the case of martial law). But then, we 'distant
neighbors' would still be out of luck, since even the really good ones
are only good for a mile or so (at least they were the last time I
Maybe I've watched too many Sci-fi movies, with
visions of what it 'could' be like in the most dire of conditions, but
I just don't see how any one would be able to communicate any distance
unless they had special radios that did not get 'fried' during whatever
it might be that would cause the emergency situation.
I just pray we are all outta here before any 'help chain' is needed. We can just greet each other 'in person'!! :)
