Thanks to my Nephew, David, we can have this filler while I  get the energy to write about the ACA and us on 8/19/2016.

Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things. 
Each year the staff at Beloit College (My daughter, Pamela, went there) 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.."

·Mc Donald's never came in Styrofoam containers. 

·They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.

·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. 


  1. I felt old when the generation was born who did not remember where they were when Kennedy was shot. But those of us who remember all of the above have lived a rich life.

  2. A rich life indeed, and without electronics, especially cell phones and silly little games. Imaging that!
