Hello I am doing a report in my english class about the pros and cons of living in the country. I dont need to many but if you could give me some that would be great.

Country folk, can grow their own veggies, put them up, harvest berries, nuts, fruits, raise livestock for themselves. Hence the way of taking care of themselves. During the early years of the 19th century, farmers made up a goodly part of raising produce, livestock, back then, they raised big families, and everyone worked to eat, there were no help programs such as welfare, Social Security, so farming was their way of life and means to take care of themselves and family.

There was a sense of community, church, and other community activities, less crime, folks were just two tire making a living and paying taxes. But they were self sufficient, like to think they still do this too. Growing up in the country, had kids healthy, why, they did chores first, then played. They were taught by parents manners, morals, and being virtous. Yep, I loved it.

I can pee in the yard and no one cares...

Now...Is that a pro, or a con???

I guess that depends on whether or not the grass turns brown

"Is that a pro, or a con?"

Salmoneye: that would be pro! i really can`t think of anything con! i could be further out, and most folks would say that i`m not far enough away, but life is good. Hawk, who just peed off of the porch saturday nite.

Not to put a black mark where it don't belong, but, generally speaking, overall, there's a better class of people in the country. .....gfp

my sister who lives in chicago would crush your mean spirited face if you said that to her. i suppose you consider yourself "a better class of people"? you obnoxious jerk.


Clipper    Posted 01-10-2005 at 15:21:49       [Reply]  [No Email]
I'd rather live with country folks than city slickers......honesty and reliability are far more prevalent here than anything I've ever seen from city people. And that goes double for Chicago....been to that city and there's nothing to brag about there.

Good afternoon to you too steve. Now, if you're trying to invoke wrath from this end, forget it. However, if you had read closely you'd see that generally speaking, overall, there's a better class in the country. So, if you see your sister in Chicago, tell her how grateful I am that she's not here to crush my mean spitited face.



steve19438    Posted 01-10-2005 at 15:59:58       [Reply]  [Send Email]
here's a thought; why don't get a dictionary (do you have one?) and look up "hyperbole".
you too markie.


Hyperbole/ per Steve`s in    Posted 01-10-2005 at 16:14:32       [Reply]  [No Email]
Hyperbole is a figure of speech which is an exaggeration. Persons often use expressions such as "I nearly died laughing," "I was hopping mad," and "I tried a thousand times." Such statements are not literally true, but people make them to sound impressive or to emphasize something, such as a feeling, effort, or reaction.

Now thats a new word for me! Hawk


Hawk    Posted 01-10-2005 at 15:04:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
Steve.......... you said that with a smile on your face and a song in your heart did`nt you?

Pro not living by you in the country! Are you off your meds again?? Mark H.

Tell em all about it Grace. harharharrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.


paula    Posted 01-10-2005 at 12:43:51       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Pros:
space, privacy, silence, scenery, no light pollution, no noise pollution, room for a garden or livestock,

cons:
distance from town or work, commute...yup that's about it.

sdg    Posted 01-10-2005 at 12:55:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
I'm with Paula...on the pro's...No noise neighbors, no booming music from cars, no pollution, simple peace and quite, no one snooping around knowing all your buisness, and not having to see people unless you want to. Best of all, not having to worry if your kids are in gangs or getting into trouble cause most likely there home with the animlas

cons....no just drive a block to a grocery store or convenince store. in the winter, not the best plowed roads.

All in all I'd take about any cons there are just to be able to have the pros
