    6) When people were less stressed and had more time to themselves.

    7) When people were happier with simpler lives and less material possessions.

    8) When technology didn't fundamentally control how people lived.

    9) When summers had extended periods of sunshine and warmth.

    10) When kids left school knowing how to count and spell proficiently, and understood the meaning of civility and good manners.

    The rest not particularly important to me personally... I'm more concerned with a women's skill and enthusiasm in the bedroom than in the kitchen And I'm a fairly handy cook myself if she's THAT bad in the kitchen!

    I would agree, but it's also fairly important that folk can count and spell, which it's increasingly obvious they can't.....
