    That's a low blow brother.

    I remember being a sports writer and covering the Houston Aeros of the old World Hockey League in that old building.

    Even always stopping in to eat with Ninfa and the kids on Navigation Blvd.

    Damn ... I turn back and I don't even see the hill anymore!

    Statistical analysis had to be done on mainframe computers that charged your department for every minute you were logged on.
    My father taught me how to use a slide rule because it was obvious I would need to know that for college.
    You had to know how to operate the remote aerial rotater to get good signal for your TV (if you were lucky to have one of those).
    Beer came in returnable bottles in every state.
    It was a felony to brew beer in your own home.

    I am so old I can remember patriotism resspect for a police officer and awe at thinking about a veteran living through a war.when parents raised thier own childern and not working was considered a disgrace for a man . I can remember taking care of our elderly and were proud to return what they had done for us. I can remember when education wasn't a party or game and hard work was the only way you gained respect. i am so old i remember ga selling23.9 BREAD 10 CENTS A LOAF and a bill of groceries for a week was less than 20.00. I can remember when a handshake and a mans word was a binding contract . when radio was all we had and tv had 3 channnels sometimes.A family all worked together to make it easier on everyone and nothing was wasted because someone needed it.

    Commuting to work on a mastodon. Because horses weren't domesticated yet. It's probably that ethyl gas (leaded) that finally did in the mastodon. ;^)

    Captain Kangaroo but not Howdy Doody. President Kennedy but only former President Eisenhower. Project Gemini but not Project Mercury. A few WWI veterans and WWII veterans on every block. Sodas sized 8 floz for a dime made of silver. Metric appearing in schools - How did the simplicity of that system never catch on until I got into the military and college?

    Star Trek and Lost in Space in black and white. Because my parents didn't have a color TV yet. 1957 Chevy as a junker not a classic. A plastic mechanical 4 bit computer to learn how digital logic worked. While I programmed it Dad glanced at it and understood the gears. Somewhere I have a URL of an online emulator.

    Being in the dorms when some guy said "Anyone want to go to an opening at the Chinese? The title is Star Wars. Might be science fiction". So I got in the car and was amazed at the size of the line.

    The network appears at work - ARPAnet. The web appears on the network - I'm one of the ones who go "Gopher with pictures. So what?"
