The Dervaes family is living the green life in Pasadena, Calif. This is what living is bound to become. IT is not a sexy lifestyle. It reminds me of the BBC TV Show- The Good Neighbors(Originally the Good Life) It shows that self sufficiency can be humorous. In short Tom and Barbara Good decide to quit the rat race and start living self sufficient- in spite of their socially upward neighbors the Leadbetters, Margo and Jerry. Watching it today still brings a smile to my face, as Richard and Barbara work their finger to the bones trying to make it, with no electricity or a car, all the time rubbing Margo's nose in it. The Dervaes family seems to have gotten the lifestyle down, even making their own bio-diesel. Hopefully we don't end up like this in the world but I am afraid it is what we are headed for. At least one can find some humor in it!

Yeah - those kids got to be special- notliving with all the ipods, gameboys and such. And the wife must be understanding.
