We not so long ago downsized. We had a fantastic an older custom made English Tudor home with all the ammenities, heated garage, in-ground heated pool, seperate artist cabin all on 2 acres of gardens and lawn with a beautiful view over looking a valley, for 20 years.
We sold it and purchased a much smaller city home with a nice,small back yard and we love it.
There is a time and place for everything. We would never change having our large home but as we grew older and the kids had left it was time to downsize.
We now totally enjoy living smaller and much more efficiently
Now that you've posted the link to fantasy land and purged this plastic diarrhea from your bowels, can we please try living in reality again and report on something that actually matters?
For example, how about talking about the fact that over 1 billion people worldwide are on the verge of starvation in part because of the greed of Americans needing ethanol to continue their happy motoring. Or, how about reporting the fact that the Fukushima nuclear plant failures have been linked to serious flaws in the design of the plants. Plants that were designed by GE, owner of MSNBC.
Obviously, ethanol isn't the only reason. Fires in Russia, floods in Asia and Australia wiped out most of the worlds grain supply's last year, contributing to the massive shortage. Meanwhile, back in fantasy land......I mean the USA, people are happily going about their business of pretending nothings wrong and avoiding the truth. Meanwhile, moronic journalists, such as the ones that created this disneyland ride of a web page, continue perpetuating a lifestyle which has contributed to climate change, which of course is the direct cause of those fires, floods and the loss of open space through suburban sprawl and shopping malls that could have been used for something much better and much more responsible.
I'll be laughing at all of you in a few years when you finally wake up (much too late btw), to the fact the party is over and growth isn't going to return, ever. At least not without drastic changes in how we live our lives. To bad most people who like this kind of reporting will never understand this until it's already too late.
