It's Amazing how with Time @ Technology the many things that we're learning about our past.Maybe looking at our past will give us a clue to what the future holds in store for us? It's truly a gift that we all are able to enjoy these days. It's a good lesson fo for us to remember just where we are in that circle of Life ! Thanks for sharing
