regionpolski 33 | 153 4 Jul 2007 / #1My wife grew up in Communist ERa Poland. Sometimes she will fondly reminince about the unique challenges those years presented. In clothing, the lack of choices put creativity in the hands of the purchaser. One size fits all was a challenge. With food, it was similiar. Potaoes, herring, cabbage and vinegar. Do something special tonight....again. Each day presented a challenge. She sometimes misses the daily struggle to get through til tomorrow. You were always busy. I'm curious, but does anyone else have similiar thoughts?
