Life a hundred years ago differed in innumerable ways from what we know today. Here's a small example.

I spent the last half an hour in the kitchen with a simple, sharp knife, a cutting board, and a bowl. I sliced, peeled, and mixed. The result combined apples from B.C. and Washington state, strawberries from California, pineapple from Hawaii, oranges from Florida, and grapes from Chile -- all fresh, not canned or preserved.

Now I'm spooning the little jewels of fruit salad into my mouth as I look out the window. And the snow comes down.
