I happened to see a program that touched upon the 1952 “Great Smog” & was amazed, amused & sobered by what happened then & what happened 68-years ago.

This cracked me up. They was controversy then (as now) as to the effectiveness of wearing masks. Human nature does not change. WOW.

It only lasted 5-days but thousands died. Despite warnings to the Government nothing had been done. Hospitals didn’t have enough equipment & staff. Deja vu all over again. The parallels were quite striking.

It is NOT great compared to what I see daily, BUT it isn’t bad either. We are indeed spoilt for choice. Notice the railing I put up a few years ago. Still standing, SMILE.

If you look you will see multiple faces in there. IF you are a connoisseur you will see the resemblance to Rodin’sBurghers of Calais“. SMILE.

Saw this on Facebook. Yes, I notice dates & can still do quick calculations of ages.

1824 to 2002. That is ONE heck of a long career — never mind A LIFE. 178-years. That would make him even OLDER than Abraham who only lived to be 175.

Wow. How come we have not heard of him.

Has to be, easily, the OLDEST man alive by miles. Even older than Biden — who he seems to have a crush upon. I can understand that.

Just think. He has lived through the U.S. Civil War, WW I, WW II, Korea, Vietnam … & now Trump. What stories he could tell. And active on Facebook at HIS age. WOW.

Must have been quite the Prison Guard.
