do i watched the premiere of this show on PBS last night called colonial house. basically its people living as people did back in the days of the may
flower (early 1600's, approximately 1628)
its pretty interesting to see people with romanticized ideas of what "the good ole days" were like and watch them as they find out whats it was
really like back then...
now PBS had two series before this, manor house (set in england and i didnt care for it) and then they had frontier house (back when people were
settling montana, where this took place) which was a good show IMO. of course the people on frontier house were judged on how well prepared they were
for the coming winter (based on historical references) and all of them failed. not one house had enough firewood for more than a month, they didnt
have enough hay for their livestock...but it was interesting to see how things were back then.
anyway if any of you watch PBS check out colonial house, i think its worth a looksee into the past of americas history.
its on again tonite and i think its playing all week. not sure, check you local listings!
