Please try to put yourself in a frame of mind that is far
away from your computer, or tv. Imagine there are no cell phones,
computers, or cars. Life's pace is down to horses and foot travel.
The only news you get is by newspaper, telegram, train, or word
of mouth. There is no air-conditioning or central heating, no
indoor plumbing, and not even pavement on the streets. Your only
light at night is around your potbellied stove, or lantern. The
year is 1901, the beginning of the 20th Century!
