The thought of living in a compound with all of my family...all of us together...all of the time...makes me start twitching. I would be AWOL in a very short time.

Family compounds are kinda common here especially among Spanish families. I have a friend in Taos who lives that way...

Fame is not a good thing on the whole. I’m with you and others who would spurn it.
That is a Beautiful answer for Question 10.
A family compound! My girls and I would love this. I’m glad I don’t live in one because I couldn’t live with my husband’s family. Family to me is my girls.
Wishing you a lovely long holiday filled with joy.

Hoarding boxes. Hmm. I think I have had that problem, and then one day I looked at the boxes and said, "I can buy new boxes at Christmas time" and tossed them all out. I felt 10,000 pounds lighter even though I didn't have 10,000 pounds of boxes.
