Something very cool happened yesterday. My first cousin two times removed (or is it 2nd cousin 1 time removed?), whom I have never met and don't know in the least, sent some old photos of my gran as a wee girl.
Above she is sitting on the mayor's left knee (your right) during King George V's Jubilee celebrations.
And here she is at the head of the table, assisted by the mayors wife.
Now, I clearly remember visiting someones house and seeing a video game for the first time. Imagine being awestruck by Pong. So I'm sort of an oldie and still amazed by the connective power of the internet. The ability it gives us to travel miles and years. To share information and memories.
I realize that sometimes it seems the interwebs is full of stinkers... but it can be pretty nice place too :)
