Do you Know where you are going?
Don’t you just love sitting on a screen porch with a ceiling fan gently stirring up a breeze? Screen porches are perfect for relaxing, eating or visiting with friends. Swing a day bed and sleep there as well. Better swing two, kids will fight over who gets to sleep outside. In the south screen porches are a necessity to keep mosquitoes out. Believe me decks cannot compare to screened porches.
This has however, nothing to do with their intelligence. The bigger brains of the Northerners were purely an evolutionary outcome occasioned by the distance from the sun, cloudy skies, dull weather and long winters.
