    When I first read that story I couldn't help but think that my childhood was pretty darn good in hindsight.:o

    weirder and weirder.

    I once spent some time living under canvas or temporary shelters including winter with very basic amenities -there was a tap. makes me appreciate more just how priviledged our lives our and (for most of us) how sheltered, comfortable and fun our childhoods were.

    we are in the position to go back to basics by choice, for fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That is an amazing story. I have known for a long time my childhood was great--very happy and easy. I have thanked my parents for that many times over.
