According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans who worked at home rose by nearly two million, from about 9.5 million in 1999 to about 11.3 million in 2005.

Wildlife – especially birdlife – is suffering too. What Happens to Birds in Winter? Despite the extreme temperatures currently being experienced, cold is not usually a problem for birds in the UK.

It's been lovingly maintained since the first fans found the farm and field where Field of Dreams was filmed. , Owners Don and Becky Lansing believe that if you maintain it, they will come.
