    It is heavy rain. Thank goodness it wasn't raining when I went to feed Shamrock. It's getting darker now isn't it? Sigh. Daylight hours next month.

    Yes, it was heavy rain but it stopped now. Glad you attended Shamrock while it was still dry

    Last weekend I saw this apple Bose computer in a shop, not for sale just display. It is from 1996 so definitely got slashed and burned along with newton when Steve jobs took over in 1997. Any one here familiar with this apple model? The guy said it used an old os but didn't know much else

    Yes, ouch! I wonder what that is worth in today's money. I expect it's into 5 figures!

    Remember when cell phones were first introduced? They cost several thousand dollars each and had only about 30 minutes talk time after an 8 hour charge.

    Yup, I do remember. We called them bricks! :D

    For a while Ford sold cars with fitted cell phones. The marketing gimmick didn't last for too long.

    Back then cell phone weight was measured in pounds, not ounces!;)
