how about eating together as a family? Does anyone do that anymore? TV, cell phone, iPod, etc. etc. all seem to serve to isolate us from one another, although the Internet and Email seem to help our communications... 'tis a puzzlement!

How about no TV remote controls (you had to either sit real close to the TV or get up to change the channel - which would of course be in black and white,) every kid had a pair of Keds, watching Lassie on Sunday afternoons and no ATM machines!

Did anyone else used to listen to "Peter and the Wolf" on the record player?

How about "carbon paper" -- not the stuff that is built into multi-page forms, but the stuff you had to actually insert between pages?

Speaking of carbon paper - for some reason we were discussing it at the dinner table - and the 6-1/2 year old thought his mom said carpenter paper! Then when he grasped the idea of paper you typed on (oh, my, had to go into what typewriters were then....) he thought carbon paper was some kind of magical thing!
When he asked where you could find carbon paper, my son-in-law and I both said together..."in phone booths!" smile
