Wonderful NY Times Article

Click here to read an incredibly moving article about how people made do during the Great Depression of the 1930’s. The article from today’s NY Times is very inspirational and a terrific read. (My favorite part is about lifting a plank in the floorboard to grab a chicken!)

Thanks for sharing this its a great read. How did we go from that to today where even people who are flat broke are over burdened with the most random stuff? I guess now if you end up on unemployment you have a whole house full of nic-naks to sell on ebay.

I remember my grandfather telling me about eating squirrel!
