If you grew up on a farm in the westof Ireland your chores as a ten year old were that of an adult. You were expected to work the farm and hold down the store as well .You pulled your weight. Children in my Father's school were periodically absent, why; "I had to help my father take the cattle to the fair Sir!." life has changed now. The old home style of education cooking has dissapeared as we succumb to the status quo.....the penny still pays the bills,now as it did then,just a million more. Nostalgia is looking back at times gone by with a wishfull romantic sentiment. We are the sum of our experiences,influences, memories,Grandparents,Parents,Uncles,Aunts,Teachers,friends,and that incredible,benevolent,innocent,envirnoment. I had a ball playing in "Gods Country",amen to those "Halycon Days"JDP(utp?),and remember "Spiceloft" when you reach "Dean Emeritus"(and you will),if your caught behind the counter you'l still be just the messenger as to the whereabouts of your Mother.So let us continue this nostalgic fact finding mission,magic,historical,entertaining,curious,educational,surprising,just imagine!,slan libh.seo e "Mise le Meas", Seamas O Dea
