  • I’ll bet 90 percent of today’s young people have no idea, not even an inkling of,  what a butter chip is. Butter chips went out of style when I was small, but I do remember our proper British mother demanding they be placed at the correct spot on our very formal holiday tables when set, at Valmora. These very small, sometimes fancy plates held one’s pat of butter, of course.

  • Mora Valley has held onto the old but still has had changes. Strangers may not realize that there have been changes as this beautiful valley still holds onto the historic past but change have had to take place in the last 60 years. Those who were here at that time and before can see the changes that have taken place.

    The beautiful mountains are never changing and the beautiful people are the same as always. They have a love of their home and family and love for their neighbor as in the old days. New people come and find this is a good place to be.
