Trucks all over the country are bringing us fresh produce and other goods so that we can step into the markets and buy pretty much whatever we want, from clementines in January to caviar from Russia.  Not too many of us are going into the root cellar for our shriveled beets stored from the summer or eating our own canned tomatoes.  We should have the skills that would allow us to survive if the trucks could not bring our food. I wonder if school would feel more relevant to kids if these skills were taught there.

Interesting post Nancy. Many boys are interested in "survival" tactics these days. Our boys love anything that has to do with this topic. I doubt if girls think about it at all and would have no idea what to do. Hmmm. By the way - great painting!
