Here I am, standing in front of #4A Treharris Street, where my paternal Grandma, Alma May (Palmer) Williams was born in 1908. I'm astonished that the houses have not been torn down. They are so well made.
You know, I'm rather sick and tired of hearing about our so called "carbon footprint" lately. The Welsh people are content to live as they have lived in the past, without many changes, but in Canada and the USA, everyone pulls down perfectly good houses, and builds monsterous ones that use tons more light and energy, yet they don't think anything about it, nor do they feel one pang of guilt.
I grew quite fond of European and the British way of living.
