Just In Case You Weren't Feeling 'Old Enough' Today ♥

 The people who are going to college this year were born in 1993. They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up. Their lifetime has always included AIDS. The CD was introduced four years before they were born. They have always had an answering machine. They have always had cable. They couldn't imagine life without their cell phones. Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show. They have never been without microwaves and can't cook without them. They never took a swim and thought about Jaws. They don't know who Mork was or where he was from. They never heard; "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel. ", or "de plane Boss, de plane." McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers. They don't have a clue as how to use a typewriter. They use calculators, computers and the Internet in college to do all of their lessons. They have always had 'personal' computers. Search Engines have taken the place of a set of good Encyclopedias. Email and texting has taken the place of writing personal letters and mailing them. Notice the larger type? That's for those of us who have trouble reading cause we're getting 'old.'    P.S. Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate.

  1. Arrrh now... Yes now I remember when we had to use the mangle and you were posh if you had a Twin tub Washing Machine. We had to walk to the corner phone box if we had to make a phone call.. and we used pennies in not Pounds, and in those days there were 240 pennies to a Pound, lol here in the UK.. Before we went decimal.. then we suddenly only had 100 pence to the Pound.

I hope you like the geekiness and topics that I write about in Wonderland. This is an older blog so I don't write very often anymore, however, the posts from the past are still enjoyable and I wrote on a plethora of subjects so give my Wonderland a try you may like it. Big hug!

BTW I have Comment Moderation turned on for the rude ones who have to leave fake comments with poorly hidden links in them. You ruin it for everyone but you already know that.
