    Exclamation Check This Out!!!

    We watch the National News & shake our respective heads about how bad things are these days ~ but it sure helps to put it all into historical perspective. I just came across this in a book that I was flipping through yesterday looking for photos of ivory carvings.
    The various "fates" of some of the Byzantine Emperors. =
    Can you imagine what daily life was like for ORDINARY COMMON FOLKS???

    True QK - life back then was cheap, plus even if death was not due to a violent end - probably 40 was a great age to achieve!!

    Indeed, we may see all the violence around us these days but - a very different environment. Much as modern day society has achieved some notoriety, there is much we can be thankful for.
