In Maggie’s day you’d visit with your neighbors on the front porch as they dropped by, with your friends over a cup of tea – a well-deserved respite from work in the afternoon, or across the counter at the country store. You’d share recipes and remedies, tips and tricks and help solve each other’s problems. Today many of us don’t connect face to face anymore. My point here is not to debate the merits or faults of this fact, as the reality is that many of us find our conversations with friends taking place over social media, blogs and online forums. Here are the tips, tricks, recipes and remedies from other bloggers that I’ve run across and found interesting. Join their conversations.
