Are There No "Peanut Butter and Jelly" Communities left in the world?

Are simpler days really gone forever?

Are there any small towns, communities or neighborhoods left in the world - the kind that still have corner stores where you can buy candy and ice cream? The kind where kids come home from school and there's always someone there to greet them with a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich, as opposed to an instructional note from a working parent? The kind where everyone sits on their front porches (if they have them) and speak with their neighbors as they pass by? The kind where people get together once a week to play "Bridge"? The kind where not everybody is rushing around to go every which way to see every which event? The kind where, you know, everyone was happy with just Bingo Night once a week at the local church hall?

Or how about the kind where everyone was just happy, period?
