We are still battling TB, and dealing with whooping cough. Not all the diseases are gone, folks.
And when I think of all the energy being used to air condition and heat these monster houses people think they need today, well, it just makes my head spin.
In summer I open windows to keep cool, and in winter I think about, but haven't done it yet, closing off part of my house. Why? Because when it was built it was for six people, and someone promised the kids all their own rooms, jeeze! Now one of the kids has moved on, and the one who made the promises is now longer around. The house is simply too big to be reasonable. It is rediculous actually. But until I figure out what to do about it, I stay and use a ton of fire wood in winter. A small cottage, like I wanted, would be ideal! Where is my little Fifties Craftsman home?
