Me too. I kind of miss folk popping round for a cup of sugar though. Last time something similar happened was when a young girl came to the door and asked me to heat up a bowl of soup as their electricity had gone off.

Our home has a revolving door. There are always people coming and going. Surprisingly enough, I do talk to the neighbours, and, what's more, I think more of the town knows me, than I know, them. The reason, I suspect, that society has become so insular is that both parents work and the kids are in care. Shopping is not a weekly chore as it once was nor do we have the "corner store" as once we had. Most people walk to the garage (usually accessed from inside the house), hop into their heated/air conditioned car, open the garage door by remote control, back out, and then close the door by the push of a button on the remote, drive several Km to the nearest shopping centre and never interact with anyone.

Back in the "good ole days" (Yeah!!! Riiiiight!!!!) you used to walk down to the corner store which might have been a mile way and would see many of your neighbours outside watering their roses. Mum used to be at the school helping out the Parents and Friends whilst dad was coaching the footy.
