  • Heads and Tails: Business Owners

    The 21st century. Our family was relieved to be back to the familiar world we know and love.

I had to dial a phone number so I could connect to the Internet. Our TV included more channels and a remote control. Also, just by turning it on, we knew all the news all around the world in just a matter of minutes.
