Various thoughts and travels
Living with the cold back in those days, that house did not retain the heat! Between things I've read on museum placards & stories from people who grew up like that (these are all northern Minnesota placards & stories) insulation & cheap energy has given us a good life today.
Agreed. I like to be warm in winter.
Families that have managed to hold on to the family farm that long should be honored. It is no easy thing.
