household devices, they allow us to live our lives easier and more efficiently.

Believe it or not, we did have phones
The younger ones today think we seniors lived in
the dark ages when it comes to communicating.
I’m sure they think we communicated with drums or sent mail via horse
and rider. Well, I can tell them that we

If you are younger, no doubt you have heard the story. If you are older (over 50), I’m sure you have told the story. It is the story of those who are seniors and how tough life was back when they were young. Back then they had to walk three miles to school in 8 ft. snow drifts. We all know it isn’t true. The highest snow drift I ever had to navigate on my two mile walk to school...

Cell Phones. How did we ever live without them? Isn’t it amazing how
quickly they’ve become part of our lives? It just doesn’t feel right
to leave the house without one. Like a wristwatch, we instinctively
reach for it as part of the daily dressing ritual.
