Modern Life

I'm in Calgary, Canada for Christmas so I haven't been updating of late.

How is everybody? Hope your holiday season was/is lovely.

I read something interesting the other day. Via Bill Bryson's book about Shakespeare I read about John Stow's mammoth work Survey of London.

In it he laments the development of modern life and how: "...the traffic in the city had grown impossible and that the young walked less than ever..."

The book was published in 1598.
