  2. I remember when I read that article in the local paper! There were letters to the Editor about it too, I think.

  3. I couldn't have said it better myself.
    "I'm bored" is the famous war cry of the youngsters here on the island. So many activities to get involved in, (more than I ever had growing up) and they're bored...I can never figure that one out.

    1. It's the "I need everything done for me" mentality Virginia. I'm not sure where it came from at a time when we have more than we ever had as a society to entertain us.

  4. Her hear! And to Virginia's famous we cry I would add "it's not fair!" Neither of these is allowed in this household!

    1. I wholeheartedly agree Frances. At least I can never recall our children saying that they were bored.
