Along time ago people used to bring their fresh eggs to market, make a few pennies and then use the money to pay back their tab at the town store! Where has that idea gone? Is it really gone? Are their any places that still do business this way? Also.... I seem to think that the penny pinching is still alive and well, but I think that alot of city dwellers dont know that things used to be alot better in the old days in some respect. People had more respect for the farmer and the land that they lived and worked on. I also felt that same connection to the land. I have always felt that way when I was growing up. So what happened? Why is the world so dependant on the all mighty dollar?
