Ahhhh, the snapshot memories we have. Slightly blurred like the black and white photos that my grandma took with her brownie camera.....I remember.... being on the way to a campground somewhere with my family and grandmother, and a couple of uncles and aunt, and cousins. We all stopped at a rest area, and sat with the doors to the cars open because of the heat.......and the radio on.......while the first man on the moon transmitted his 'first steps for mankind'.
Those kind of things stay with you.

We enjoy being on the road with our trailer, but we need to have connectivity to the world due to our jobs. As a school district superintendent, I need to be available 24/7 most days, so the phone or computer is a necessity. My wife's job as a university professor/program chair requires her to be available to students and staff, too. I have about 7-8 years until retirement, so I hope to be more free then!

I wouldn't trade Google, with all its ephemera, for a 50 yr. old Encyclopedia Brittanica. The interface with the world was unconscionably slow when you had to slam a screen door to find it but it was 3D and five senses all day long. I worry that the reduction in distance between the haves and havenots is leading to little besides trigger-finger thumb. Don't get me wrong, I love technology. It's just the way most of us abuse it that offends my sense of survival.

But the internet keeps the masses quiet, entertained, and distracted, Jack!

It's the modern "circus" part of the old Romans' "bread and circuses" means of keeping the great unwashed entertained while the Powers That Be go about their business...

But even the Romans could not have imagined that there'd ever be a way to continuously crawl up the leg of the "entertained" while they were at the circus...

I would tell the bartender my Grandpa Charlie wanted some beer , the bartender would fill the bucket and send me home. Try that now days

Did they rub some butter around the edge of the "bucket" to kill the foam? Get a full bucket of beer that way or so my friends in Pittsburgh have told me.

Yes my grandmother did butter the bucket . I forgot all about buttering till you pleasantly reminded me. I remember having to walk slow so i wouldn't shake up the beer
