I check out the Conspiracy Forum every once in a while. Interesting stuff...but above me.
I'm just thankful I had the chance to spend alot of time around my Grandmother, who not only grew up on a homestead way out in the boonies, having to provide for themselves- but also went through the Depression years, and growing food/preservation was high priority for her. Younger generations have no clue...food just comes from the supermarket. If something breaks, just throw it away and get a new one.
For Christmas, we got a typed out interview a nephew had done with my 82 year old mother-in-law from her childhood...she was telling about the 2 changes of clothes she had for school--and the cardboard they had to put in their shoes.
On the other side of the coin--the 12 year old granddaughter was bragging about the $70 sweater she was wearing, and $45 pants she got at the mall. Both of which she'll most likely have lost within a month.
