party lines - you could pick up the telephone and hear everyone's conversation. If they were long-winded, you had to ask them to hang up so you could use the phone.

I love this scripture because it tells me that if I live according to God's ways I don't even have to think for myself.... How easy is that :-)

Be not afraid of going slowly;
be afraid only of standing still

growing up playing on a commadore 64 and the game that I LOVED: Below the Root. I want a copy of that game to keep for ever and ever.

Also, when the Northwest Territories used to include Nunavut. Oh and when Quebec wanted to separate and be its own country.

I'm old enough to remember when we had 3 tv channels, when tv was not 24 hours, tv was only black and white, and when you turned off the tv the screen got smaller and smaller till just a little white dot was left!

Hearing my great grandfather talk about taking a covered wagon across the US.

Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency. Remember that our sons and grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your watchword be order and your beacon beauty. Think big.

Daniel Burnham, Chicago a
