Overturned shelves of Parmesan cheese wheels in a cheese factory in San Giovanni, Italy, on May 21. 2012, following an earthquake the day before. -- Earthquake in Northern Italy
Some things just cannot be duplicated. Parmesan cheese, real Parmesan, happens to be one of those. The price of this particular cheese is already screaming through +/- $20 a pound for regulation strength. After this earthquake, I'm looking for it to double. When it does it will be added to all those other things that the current government and media are determined to hide as very real rises in very real prices. Just yesterday, on the way to purchase some Parmesan among other things, I stopped for my regular once-a-month tank of gas. Cost? North of $80.00. I seem to remember a time when the same tank was $40.00, but I am evidently supposed to send that down the memory hole as well.
Hope for change? At this rate the next time I fill up all I can hope for is a little change from $100.00. How about you?Posted by gerardvanderleun at May 22, 2012 1:09 PM
