  1. thats awesome. i cannot help but think of the changes that people of his age saw.
    i remember at my grandfathers funeral the speaker talking about how the what is a few hour car trip for us now was a journey of days back then. to think to have been able to see no automobiles to freeways. to see a baseball stadium and players back then on a rare occasion to being able to find almost anything at the touch of a mouse and a keyboard.
