Chew on This . . . Gently

Remember the good old days of Bazooka bubble gum and corn-on-the-cob? When the tooth fairy liked you?

Forget the Russians….The Beeps Are Taking Over!

Beeps are on the attack. How many are there in an hour? Let’s count. I cooked dinner in the microwave – two beeps to choose the time, one for the start button, and a double beep when the food was hot. Two more beeps when I didn’t take it out it fast enough. While waiting for dinner there were two beeps when I left the refrigerator door open t...Read More

10 Incredible Things That Kids Growing Up Today Won’t Know

The “calling” experience When you made a call from a landline, remember being chained to the phone for an hour because of that cord? It only let you walk within a one-foot radius of the phone.

Number Love

Numbers were never my friend. Until now. In the old days I was terrible in math, messed up on calculators, and always miscounted the number of place settings at holiday dinners. I even lost at Gin Rummy. Things have changed. Today we’re drowning in numbers. From calculators, statistics, and blood pressure machines to Sudoku and card games, it’s num...Read More

The 3 WORST Words: Activating Your Device!

WARNING… The following contains disturbing graphic scenes: a middle-aged married couple trying to setup their new cell phones. Enough said. For the life of me I don’t know what got into Jan.

Are You Nuts?

Nuts are good for you. Experts say we should eat more nuts to live longer. Those crunchy little nuggets demand to be regulars in our lives. You can get them in any supermarket or, if you’re so inclined, go premium, natural, or organic. They’re plain, raw, roasted, salted, or served in the shell – all very respectable. Nutella and fudge nut br...Read More

The Amazing Cell-Phone Diet!

Me? I haven’t been able to control my enthusiasm. My wife? She can’t contain her sarcasm. “Gary please tell me you’re running around the house because you’re excited that for once you remembered to put the toilet seat down!” Actually it’s better; much better. I am about to join the list of great inventors–people who have brought about transformatio...Read More
