    How about "roaming charges?" I once ran up a $10,000 bill when I spent a month opening a new office in another state. Yikes!

    Remember when you used to go to Best Buy on a Saturday morning to buy the latest rocker CD and the place was jam packed? Now the place is a ghost town.

    Remember when you took a broken TV to a TV repair man?

    Also, remember when you would forget to set up the record on a VCR before going out so you ended up missing that new season premier of your favorite show?

    Seconding the point about 'organic food' being just food.

    Off topic but has anyone got/had a vegetable garden before? When I was 8 we had a small garden full of tomatoes, cucumbers, spring onions, apple tree etc...

    I remember going out at 5am to pick the fruit & veg and then going to the farmer shop next door where they sold hot bread fresh out of the oven. I can still remember the aroma and crackle of the crust when you cut it.

    Yes, my father would grow a small vege patch with fruit in the backgarden when i was around your age although i was not as lucky as you to be able to go to a farmer shop.

    My neighbour who had just arrived from Macadonia had Grapevines over trellises, roosters, sunflowers, pigeons and 50 sq metres of veges.
    Oh man and the the waft of expresso coffee i can still smell to this day, lol

    Remember when cars had two different keys.

    Remember when an international long distance call coming into the house was something that everyone in the house would pay attention too and take turns talking on the phone.
