Drinking coffe from saucer - "60-luvun mummot istuivat kaiken aikaa kahvittelemassa, se on osa lapsuuden muistikuvaa. Mummoilla oli kummallinen tapa kaataa kahvi kupista lautaselle ("tassille"), pistää sitten sokeripala hampaiden väliin ja imeä sitten kahvi tassilta sokeripalan läpi suuhun. Sellaista ei näe enää." - Finland

"Make-believe colors the past with innocent distortion, and it swirls ahead of us in a thousand ways-in science, in politics, in every bold intention. It is part of our collective lives, entwining our past and our future ... a particularly rewarding aspect of life itself." Shirley Temple Black
