Now that I am ninety-five years old, looking back over the years, I have seen many changes taking place, so many inventions have been made. Things now go faster. In olden times things were not so rushed. I think people were more content, more satisfied with life than they are today. You donít hear nearly as much laughter and shouting as you did in my day, and what was fun for us wouldnít be fun now.... In this age I donít think people are as happy, they are worried.
