I often wonder if, in 1-200 years time, things will have gone full circle, and those around will be living as our ancestors did at the turn of the last century (ie 1900s)

I don't think it'd harm anyone to live that way - at least there were no benefit scroungers; drugs (to the extent there are today); crime (to the extent there is today) etc etc etc

And ... there was no-one telling you don't eat this cos you'll have high cholestorol (sp?) , don't smoke or you'll be victimised for life, or don't fart in the company of this person etc etc etc


Eeee, them were the days!!!!!!!!!  














(Neil - the labour of love is more Cs than mine, it's been his dream for almost all of his life; although now it is becoming a reality - I am getting quite excited!!!!  
And I'm certainly not afraid of some real hard work, unlike some of my generation....)

Quoted from NeilT
Maxine, but yours will be a labour of love..

Elfi, I would also love to see the world in a 100/200 years time, to see if it changes into a better place, my worry of for my children, and their children, to what sort of planet they will live on.



My thoughts exactly Neil.

In 200 years I expect some of my descendants will be peering through a telescope and saying

thats where our ancestors lived before they poisoned the planet. Lucky for us our planet Mars survived.
