    I'm involved on 4 different forums. This one, two RV and one auto forum. When someone needs some technical help seems that there are always plenty of experts available. 

    What is your RV site?

    We are going to replace the kitchen floor in the 5th next month...may need some of them experts!!:rolleyes:

    One way folks let technology work for them is using the Health App on their phones to count steps. If you don’t reach a certain goal the phone lets you know. Some of my guys at work do this. 


    I am my own enemy there!!! I just don't do it!!!

    My wife made homemade Turkey soup. Had some yesterday and probably having it for dinner today. 

    Her recipe:

    I have no idea. She makes it. I eat it. It’s Nummy! :D

    That does sound good!!!

    I love soup...probably more than you love pie, or TW loves 'nanner splits!!!

  4. I gotta say...some technology has been great. I value the things that have improved life for many, young and old alike.


    But yet, sometimes the technology just prolongs what is to come...making it harsh.


    I think of all the little things I enjoy now.

    TV remote

    Kids room monitors

    Cell phone



    Heat with a push of the button

    Oven/stove at the turn of a knob

    Water at demand, HOT water at that...

    This list goes on.


    I also think we would all be healthier/fit without all these things.

    We no longer get up and go to the TV to change the channel.

    We no longer get up and see what time it is, or answer the phone.

    We don't stand at the sink and wash/rinse/dry and put away after supper.


    Scrubbing/wringing clothes then out the door to hang on the line...


    What got me thinking about this?:mellow:

    Brodie sat the moniter beside me, as the kids nap and she runs errands.

    This way I need not get up and check on the babes, and can SPEAK to them if need be!

    I wonder why I have put on an extra 75 lbs!!!

    I do this on a regular basis in Photoshop.
    When I shoot our lodge and social events, I always run in "paparazzi" mode, which is a burst of 5 or more shot at a time.

    Out of these multiple shots, I usually get only one "money shot".
    When somebody has their eyes closed, etc, in the money shot, I go to one of the others and move their eyes to the money shot.

    I also retouch all the ladies... men are on their own.
    Removing wrinkles, skin defects and contouring faces is always a hit with the ladies.

    There is a very good reason why digital images not allowed for forensic work.


    Except I earned every wrinkle, sag and roll...not to mention grey hair. I would not want that removed.

    Two years ago I carved about 24 of these and gave them out to friends and family. I have two on my tree. They are early attempts that were experimental.  They are carved from a square stick like the one at the top.
    They are 5” long and have two sides with the face on each side. Each face ended up a little different which made it interesting. It was a lot of fun seeing the reactions of those I could hand them to personally. 



    Those are fantastic!!!

    Back in the 1950's, we would go visit my aunt, and she had some ornaments on her tree that I not seen before, or since. 

    If memory serves, it resembled a kind of "eye-dropper", with a colored liquid in it, and when the tree lights were turned on, it would light up, and produce bubbles flowing in the "eye-dropper". It was so neat. 

    Question: Does anyone else remember, or perhaps have, any tree ornaments like this? 

    I haven't seen one since about 1958 or '59, or so. It was fascinating for a small boy to watch. I never forgot it. 



    Oh well....time to turn on my black and white Emerson T.V., with a real wood cabinet, and watch the Perry Como show, while drinking a glass of grape Fizzies, and eating some jiffy-pop popcorn that we popped on the stove top, and had that aluminum foil mushroom as it popped and burned.

    All that, and no air-conditioning.   


    (Music playing) Thanks...for the memmories...


    Yes...the glass, filled with colored liquid...ours were twists (like Taco Bell cinnamon twists)

    I also recall the glass beads on a stringer.

    What I don't recall is a Dec 23rd visit to the Dr in 1965 to remove said bulb from inside my left nostril.
