Yesterday my great-aunt celebrated her 100th birthday. Just imagine.

When my great-aunt was born...
  • the First World War hadn't started
  • cars were barely invented
  • computers weren't invented
  • telephones were beyond unusal
  • television wasn't yet in every home - radio was the next big thing
  • photographs were on special occasions only
  • movies didn't have sound or colour
An amazing lady - who has seen so much. I wonder what the world will be like for those of us around now who will celebrate our 100th birthdays?!
