Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things. Each year the staff at Beloit College in Wisconsin puts together a list to try to give the faculty a sense of the mindset of this year's incoming freshmen. Here's this year's list:
 
 
 
The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1998.  
 
 
They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.
 
 
 
Their lifetime has always included AIDS. 
 
 
 
Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.
 
 
 
The CD was introduced 7 years before they were born.
 
They have always had an answering machine.
 
They have always had cable.
 
They cannot fathom not having a remote control.
 
 
 
Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.
 

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.
 
 
 
They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are.
 
 
 
They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.
 
They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel", or "de plane, Boss, de plane.."
 
 
 
They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.
 
 
Mc Donald's never came in Styrofoam containers.
 
 
 
They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.
 
 
 
Do you feel old yet? Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list. Notice the larger type, that's for those of you who have trouble reading..
 
So have a nice day!!!!! It is good to have friends who know about these things and are still alive and kicking!!!!

MA GOP Gov & Uber-RINO (Christie endorser) Charlie Baker seeks to pack GOP state committee with pricey hacks replacing real conservatives including many who worked hard to make him gov. 
Here's a site to identify the white hats. After you've voted to shake-up the big money establishment pros in the national party, you might want to move a little down the ballot and give the dictatorial Republicrat gov a goose he'll never forget. Thought some might like to know. 
On March 1st, don't give the establishment more power, instead visit www.VoteReform.org to find the reform candidates in your city or town.

I prefer the dog to the nitwit in the tower who sounds like he's being castrated with pliers and a very dull knife ...  Hilarious

I think you'll enjoy this. Whoever wrote it could have been my next door neighbor because it totally described my childhood to a 'T.'  Hope you enjoy it.

My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem to get food poisoning.
My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter and I used to eat it raw sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in ice pack coolers, but I can't remember getting e.coli.
Almost all of us would
Have rather gone swimming in the lake instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.
The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell, and a pager was the school PA system.
 We all took gym, not PE... and risked permanent injury with a pair of high top Keds (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors.  I can't recall any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now.
Flunking gym was not  an option... Even for stupid kids! I guess PE must be much harder than gym.
Speaking of school, we all clapped erasers, said prayers and sang the national anthem, and staying in detention after school caught all sorts of negative attention.
      We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system we had then. 
 
Remember school nurses?    Ours wore a hat and everything.
I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before I was allowed to be proud of myself.
I just can't recall how bored we were without computers, Play Station, Nintendo, 
X-box or 270 digital      TV cable stations.                                                    
Oh yeah... And where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed!
We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel left on vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn't sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked.         
Now it's a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $99 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a threat.         
We didn't act up at the neighbor's house either; because if we did we got our butt spanked there and then we got our butt spanked again when we got home.         
I recall Donny Reynolds from next door coming over and doing his tricks on the front stoop, just before he fell off.
Little did his Mom know that she could have owned our house.
Instead, she picked him up and swatted him for being such a goof. It was a neighborhood run amuck.         
To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been told that they were from a dysfunctional family.
How could we possibly have known that?
We needed to get into group therapy and anger management classes.
We were obviously so duped by so many societal ills, that we didn't even
notice that the entire country wasn't taking Prozac!
How did we ever survive? 
LOVE TO ALL OF US WHO SHARED THIS ERA; AND TO ALL WHO DIDN'T, SORRY FOR WHAT YOU MISSED. I WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR ANYTHING!
Pass this to someone and remember that life's most simple pleasures are very often the best.

Was out looking for place near ocean for good piece of fish. Stumbled on this place &"plain" atmosphere made it seem welcoming. Unfortunately landed on day when a friend of owner showed up w/ his significant other. Felt pretty much ignored. Fish & chips were nice. Owner acted like I should thank God for this particular piece of fish they had gotten up at 4:00 a.m. to have. Fries were prepared as requested. Cole slaw tasted homemade. Could have been more. Would have been if they had skipped lettuce bed serving no purpose. Same w/ fish. Still portions ok. Price VERY unreasonable. No senior discount. Don't take credit cards but have independent ATM. So they won't pay for card fee but they'll let you pay. All in all very disappointing. Guess it's a place for the owner's pals who like loud place that makes them feel they're at Mel's Diner. I won't be back.

Root canal/crown. Expensive but not unreasonable (I suppose). Aloof dentist. Thought it would last longer. Not certain that it was the best work. Certainly not as good as others I've had. Returned for assistance and thought effort would be made to assist. Very little. Never saw dentist, just assistant. Minimal "correction" done. Was expected to pay for minor work to correct their work of just a few years earlier. Owner's wife (?) was upset that I got dental hygiene treatment at senior discount public health facility. Would not recommend this office at all. Too cold.Very nice when one agrees with them. Not when one objects at all.
