Well, what do I say? sraym01's post was reported for sexism and I must say that I agree. I almost wish my grandmother was alive to read what he wrote because I think she would give him a piece of her mind. Born in 1905, by the time she was nine, England was at war with Germany so, for four years, she shared in the deprivation war brought. By the time she was married, the hunger marches had begun, and by the time she had a couple of children, the world had entered the Great Depression. She struggled through that, making ends meet on my grandfather's meagre income and had just about afforded a radio in time to hear the announcement that England was at war with Germany. By then, my grandfather was showing signs of heart disease so his role in the war was as an air raid warden while my grandmother struggled to feed a family on wartime rations. She gave birth to her last child under the stairs while German bombers flew overhead. After the war, they finally afforded a house with an indoor toilet. Halleluia! Then my granddad died and my grandmother raised the rest of her children and me, and my cousin, all alone on a widow's pension. Not bad for a weak and feeble woman, deprived of a provider!!!
