Sauerkraut Sunday: The Shortage Edition

Sauerkraut Sunday: The Shortage Edition

I don’t regularly trade commodities as valuable as sauerkraut, prefering to focus on more commonly accepted economic commodities like worthless gold and silver.  If I were to trade sauerkraut futures though, I would be in BUY mode today.  You see, there’s been a tragic accident at one of the few Sauerkraut manufacturers in the US, The Fremont Company.  A large concrete roof collapsed and experts are unsure how long the sauerkraut assembly lines will be down.  In the mean time, its highly recommended that you gather up some reserves and possibly even learn to make your own.  Until next week though, it’s every man for himself.

Now on to the purpose of Sauerkraut Sundays… As I go through the week, I use Twitter to send out little updates and links.  I realize that I do this quite a bit and that not all of you use Twitter, so with that in mind I’d like to take Sunday to do sort of a week in review.  I’ve selected the most useful of my tweets from the last week and placed them in to the categories that I use in this blog.
