    What kind of business do you think is "booming", right now, when other's are disappearing overnight?

    Bicycle's?
    Booze?
    $1.00 Stores?
    Pharmacy medications (tranquilizers)?
    Street Drug's ? :eek:

    Add to the list. :)

    Oatmeal.

    When times are hard sales in oatmeal tend to go up.

    Great, now I'm hungry

    I just can't stand oatmeal.....my mom used to basically force feed the stuff to me and i would gag....

    The ONLY thing i am not able to eat!

    And i LOVE oatmeal cookies with raisins, and other cookies with oatmeal in them but not oatmeal itself.

    It is VERY GOOD for you though and can lower your colesterol levels substantially and rather quickly if you do the oatmeal thing every day....hubby had to do it, and his bad colesterol levels were lowered 50 points in just a month!

    My kids love it and it's cheap. There's all kinds of things you can do to it to make it more than just oatmeal.

    Bircher Muesli is awesome.

    walmart....recession proof....

    paid porn of all degrees will probably not slow down, it's more of an addiction....same with gambling, cigarettes, booze....and street drugs as you mentioned.

    i bet ya people with some modest money buy ''green'' things to retrofit their homes with solar, wind, geothermal etc energy...
