Which obsolete piece of technology do you still use?
Join Midfield High School
my beeper , and a pay phone ! ,
not really, but, remember when some one would "beep you " , and it may take 2 hours to call them back,
now , if you call someone , your impatient if you dont hear back in a couple of minutes ! jezzzzz !
the best "new technology" to me is the flat screen HD tv's and a DVR , life dont get much better than that on a
cold winter day, and you can watch crap all day in HD .AND if that crap is not good enough, you can re-wind it and watch the same crap again !
I have thought about us getting together and writting a book, it could be both a serious but comical look at life and how we were raised and what has happened to us throughout life..... We all have som great stories and events in our lives and even some heart-wrenching occurances....
Hey, we should start a new reality TV Show...the Midfieldians! We can survive anything! We did have a wonderful foundation growing up in Midfield...The Wonder Years! Love, support, discipline, community involvement in positive ways! I really think we developed a lot of practical skills, ingenuity, and creativity that have enabled us to become pretty successful in most areas of life! These traits, unlike technology, never become obsolete!
Frank, you are so right, we can find a silver lining in any troubles that come our way. When the tornados hit in April and some lost everything it put so much in perspective and with the power being out from 4-15 days for so many the silver lining was it brought so many families closer together with each other due to the lack of so many things that preoccupy each and everyone of us. Kids had to actually played together outside for a change, families actually set at the table and had a meal and conversation. We peobably need for reality checks in our lives to humble even more....
We were without power and water for over a week due to recent storms in CT. We had to rely on fireplace for heat, candles for light, buckets of (town provided) water to flush, Coleman stove for coffee and conversation to keep each other entertained, how novel!
It’s amazing how we take the most basic forms of technology like electricity and plumbing for granted…until they are gone.
I still use a hand held can opener. Never have had an electric one that was worth a flip.
Portable CD Player..... Occasional Cassette Tapes too, still have some awesome music on cassette and vinyl, however vinyl is attempting a comeback.....I have been improving my MP-3 / I-Pod usage quite a bit lately though...
Camera, Phone and Computer are all obsolete...and less than a year old!
