    I am blessed to say I live in a Midwest neighborhood where everyone is well armed, and will/does watch out for each other. We are having our annual block party this weekend. People may laugh at flyover country, but it’s a darn good place to live.

      Out here I leave the keys in the truck so I don’t have to wonder where I put them down.
      They say with the heroin problem I really out not do that any longer. sigh.
      Locking your car at the neighbors house would be considered very rude.

      When we hear someone burning though a case of ammunition we look at each other and wonder who had a birthday?

      Outside of large liberal run cities I would bet the USA is perhaps the safest place on Earth to live.

    I laughed heartily while watching the video clip, then became reflective and melancholy over the loss of those social norms, several which are mentioned in comments above. Then it also dawned on me – back in the day, the entire family was in the living room, together watching the same television show on the only household television. It also reminded me of just how rare it is to have the entire family in the same room enjoying the same televised program – or simply conversing together today. Sigh.

    Many sharing great stories of their early lives and upbringing today. So, let me share one here.
    I was the youngest of six grandsons from an Polish/Italian family. My mom’s side was the Italian side. We were much closer to that side because my Dad died young in an Industrial accident.

    As it was, being the youngest grandson, I was the favorite. My Italian Grandfather was a strong-willed, big man. At 6’2″ and 210 lbs of hardened muscle with a big handlebar mustache he had the respect of the neighborhood. My Grandmother was the kindest, nicest person and stood all of 4′ 10″. Yet, I believe while my Grandfather could blow the roof off when his temper got up from us kids, I think my Grandma was the boss. She managed the house, while the outside was his world. His vegetable garden and flower garden was the envy of all who would visit. No one ever left without a fresh bag of peppers, peaches, beans, tomatoes….you name it, he had it.

    A few here mentioned Entemann’s pastry. WOW! Do I remember the Danish on top of the Fridge…ha! just like some mentioned. However, I remember the fresh pies too. One day, on his walking visits into town, I remember as a kid he brought home a couple lemon meringue pies, along with an apple and cherry. The kind of freshly baked pies where the Italian baker would put them in those white boxes and use white string to tie them up. Well, as kids, we loved the meringue on top of the pie, not the lemon so much. These pies were meant for the family get together for Sunday lunch.

    It just so happened that the Saturday evening he brought home the pies, all the cousins and my brother and me, (6 boys) were going to have a summer night sleepover at Grandma & Grandpop’s. Sure enough, the older boys found the Lemon Meringue Pies and they untied the boxes and ate all the meringue off the top of the pies. Well, later before bed my Grandfather calls all six boys together and he asked who ate all the meringue off the two pies?

    Naturally, all the older boys pointed to me, the youngest grandson. Well, my Grandfather’s handlebar mustache almost curled right there in front of us. Not only was I the favorite, but he certainly knew that I didn’t eat the meringue.

    He sits all of us boys down at the large dining room table and tells us to open up the pie boxes.
    He says, “go ahead, eat, enjoy”. Well, we hated lemon pie! He served my cousins and my brother a real big slice from the pies. Not me though. Sixty years later, we still talk about the big bowl of ice cream with nuts, cherries and whip cream that he gave me while the rest of the boys kept eating lemon pie until it came out their ears.

    Grandpop….I miss ya!

    Fun memories… but now I realize that all that “food” was slowly killing me. Traditions seem so grounding until you realize they were built on unnatural ideas of what the human species was meant to live off of. My life has forever changed after learning the truth through Forks Over Knives (and the China Study) and What the Health, both on Netflix.

      All that food (high carb) was meant as fuel for human muscle power. It really was needed too. Try getting up and 4 AM, milk the cows and then farm all day before milking the cows again. We were meant to run and walk and to be outside, not sitting at a desk or in front of a computer.

      Also people ate REAL butter and drank REAL milk (unpasturized) and ate a lot of cheese and salted meats (salted with sea salt that contains trace minerals that we all need.)

      Were you aware that Americans today get 1/2 the iodine that we got when I was a kid? That the bromine used to replace iodine in bread and found in sodas also replaces iodine in your thyroid and really mucks up your body?

      Check out: link Sabretoothed comes up with some really great info on diet in the Tips section. I think he is a dentist.

      • Here’s my tip for iodine shortage – I buy tablets of Icelandic Kelp. They are very small, so you can calibrate your own dose. When I am low on Iodine, YMMMV, I slowly begin to feel depressed. Then, I suddenly catch on that I’ve not been taking my kelp tablets. In a day or so, all is well again. This is all self-diagnosed after decades of testing, but my doctor hates it. Not scientific, don’cha know.

        Yes, regarding bromine but in areas where tap water is fluoridated, fluorine depletes more iodine than bromine. Also, chlorine in tap water, swimming pools and laundry also depletes iodine. This is the law of halogen displacement.
        When healthy thyroid function depends on the presence of iodine, is there any wonder that thyroid related illness is epidemic?!

        True about our bodies being designed to work hard. Been seeing a lot of lifetime office workers needing new hips and knees vs. construction workers as they age. Makes you wonder if sitting around is good for you?

      Lisa, lots of truth there….but in the 1960’s, High Fructose was not in our food chain….not to mention GMO’s, Steroids, and other fillers that we have no idea how the FDA is trying to give us Cancer. My Grandfather’s chicken’s and cow were all free range and that was before the fields were being sprayed with pesticides.
      Yet, you are right…..the good food today usually is too expensive for the average middle class family to eat on a daily diet….so the key is to minimize the toxins and chemicals along with all the preservatives and processed foods….
