Time Like An Ever Rolling Stream [Jan. 14th, 2016|10:14 am]
Tony Grist
"Who was the British monarch 100 years ago?" asked the TV quiz-master.  And the contestant said, "Queen Victoria."

Well, yes, I might have said that myself if pushed for time-  because for the first 50 years of my life it would have been the right answer.

As it was, I reached for my mental abacus and moved the beads around a bit. A hundred years ago was 1916- slap bang in the middle of the Great War- and so the king was-

George V.

But George V was king when my parents were born.

Yes. Exactly.

How time flies.

In my head "30 years ago" is still about 1970.

Yeah, same here.

I can't get used to this no longer being the 20th century.
