The Greatest Generation on YouTube

I go on "information jags"--internet, blogs, books. Two of my recent jags are reading about presidents (Kennedy and FDR,) and watching "Geriatric1927" on YouTube. He is an 80 year old British man who is telling the story of his life in parts on YouTube. Its fascinating to watch him learn about technology and share the rich story of his life. Its not flashy or exciting in a modern sort of way, but it is charming and, in its own way, addicting.

This film was so lovely and meaningful as I can relate to so much of it.
Thank you for your lovely blog. Virginia

Thanks, Virginia. I think people that age are a living history treasure.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
