  1. We just can’t imagine the hardships our ancestors faced on a regular basis… I remember one of my aunts telling me she woke up one morning to snow ON her bed!

  2. I had no idea bouillion cubes had been around so long. I once lived for several days with only bouillions cubes to eat. Starving university student.

  3. The wind is wonderful to watch from inside. You see all the movement it gives to movable objects. The winds sounds interesting, too, but when you are out in it, it cases you to perk your interest in safety. It causes you to be a ware. It causes your nose to run!
