In the olden days the diet of the people was very poor. Their chief food was potatoes three times a day, and some fish because fish was very plentiful. Very few people used to kill pig that time. people used not to eat meat but on Christmas day and on Easter Sunday. They used to grind their own corn with a big flat stone called a quern. The old people was far healthier than the people nowadays. The old people used to do a half a days work before their breakfast. The people long ago were very happy.
