    This will sound like a Senior Smoke post but here goes.

    Was thinking about things that were part of everyday life but are now gone or almost gone. Things that just aren't made or used anymore.

    This is my short list, please add to it.

    1 Audio and video magnetic tape
    2 Phone booths and pay phones
    3 Vacuum tubes
    4 Cathode Ray tubes
    5 Photographic film
    6 Typewriters
    7 Slide projectors
    8 Reel lawn mowers
    9 Ice boxes
    10 Rotary dial telephones

    My coffee crew was just talking about the fact you probably can't buy a car that has hand crank windows and no power steering.

    We just sold a ground-lift 3 bottom plow that we've had in our shed for many years. I first pulled it with a G John Deere 46 years ago when I was 12.
    The last piece of ground-lift equipment that we had.

    Vacuum tubes are not gone. Some very high dollar amplifiers use vacuum tubes.

    The honor and the integrity of the Presidency?

    A time where one's word was one's bond - where a hand shake meant more than any contract...

    If you'll notice...........a lot of the younger generation don't wear wrist watches anymore.

    Why, because they all carry cell phones which gives them the correct time whenever they want.
