First to Start The Blog : What "Back In My Day" Story Will You Tell Your Grandkids in 50 Years? Our generation got to hear all of our grandparents tell us, "Back in MY day, we had to walk uphill both ways to school, in the snow, wearing canvas shoes . . . and we LIKED it." So . . . what will WE tell OUR grandkids about?
1. Back in my day, we used dial-up Internet. It was slow, you got charged by the minute, you lost your connection if someone picked up a phone in the house, and it made horrible screeching noises when you connected.
2. Back in my day, if we wanted to watch a movie, we had to drive to the video store to rent it. If their one copy was checked out, you picked something else. And then, when we were done, we had to rewind it so we wouldn't get charged extra.
3. Back in my day, if you wanted to talk to a girl, you had to call her house and talk to her parents first.
4. Back in my day, if a kid was picking on you at school, your dad told you to go back the next day and punch him in the face . . . not file a lawsuit against him.
5. Back in my day, if we needed directions, we had to look them up on a map before we left the house. And if we got lost, we had to find a gas station where we could ask for directions that were probably not very good.
NEW MUSIC TODAY:
ERIC CHURCH released the video to his song "Give Me Back My Hometown". We don't fully understand the Story Line going on, But what a great song!
And For Something Completely different:
Five Random Facts For Monday
1. There is no difference between Tylenol Cold and Tylenol Flu other than their packaging . . . they have the exact same ingredients.
2. The Nazi salute is called the Bellamy salute. Before the Nazis took it over, kids in the U.S. would do it during the Pledge of Allegiance. In 1942, Congress decided you should put your hand over your heart during the Pledge instead.
3. Almost all the wasabi we eat in the U.S. is actually a mixture of horseradish, mustard, starch, and food coloring. Real wasabi is usually too expensive to import.
4. It's illegal to enter the Houses of Parliament in England wearing a suit of armor. It's also illegal to die there.
5. Ethiopia uses a different calendar than most of the rest of the world. It has 13 months and it's currently 2006 there now. Their 13th month is only five days long or six days during a leap year. And days start at 6:00 A.M. instead of midnight.
