I grew up on a farm with my parents. They grew their own food and sold it to vendors around the country. This was how they made their living. I was an unusual kid in the sense that I didn’t have much of a childhood living out in the middle of nowhere on some farm! I made up for it when I left home in my college years though. I got to catch up on all that I missed in every day life, and I was very happy for that! I also got to experience what real heating and air conditioning should feel like! It seems that growing up we had pretty primitive and awful heating and air conditioning. My body got used to the crappy heat and a/c, so it never harmed me. The same with my family I guess. But let me tell you, experiencing real true central heating and air conditioning was something like dying and going to heaven! Especially when it was either really cold or really hot outside. It was a major relief to be indoors and having wonderful air quality and temperatures. And that brings me to another thing. And that was the fact that the air quality was pretty lousy growing up. I did not know it at that time, but because of the farm stuff and lifestyle, I was always around bad air quality. If they had whole home air purification systems at this time, my parents sure could have used them! It may have had a big difference in my allergies as well that I always used to deal with. I’m glad I grew up and got out!
