Gibbs, Chan, Barnaby, Booth, Shepherd, and Foyle

Children of Litha ~ 7 of Coins

To survive the Tibetan highlands Yaks have three times the lung capacity of standard cows and their food processes at a higher temperature to combat the cold weather. They have adapted to their needs in the world in which they live. It is nature doing the work though, not a long term plan for their retirement.

Modern populations? Not so much. We don't even know what our needs are anymore. Will our Roths and self-taught stock investments provide when inflation has eaten up our everyday monthly income? I'm confident. But I remember the weeks following 9/11 when 2/3 of both were wiped out.

On the other hand, as DVD players have gone the way of buggy whips...I've banked three in my stuff pantry. Bring on the future, I'll have Gibbs, Chan, Barnaby, Booth, Shepherd, and Foyle.

  1. Reminds me of getting rid of a box full of VCR tapes, wondering if anyone would have a VCR in which to play them.

    1. our first player was a Sony Beta VHS player. $1200.00 marked down to $600.00 By the early 2000's rental places were no long offering VHS movies. Sold it on Ebay for $200.00 and a giant box of movies for $60.00. Only because the Sony Beta was such a good machine, doubt you could give away any other brand. Streaming isn't possible where we live so that whole concept is pointless.

  2. My Mother used to say, just about everything comes back in style. The albums so many had and record players tossed with ipod and mp3 players. Go to the department stores and yep, there are record players once again for sale. My nephew (31) and niece (27) look for albums to buy and play on their recent Christmas gift.

    1. a number of Woodstock bands are re releasing their hits this year on all modes, including vinyl. After buying the White Album on vinyl, then 8 track, then cassette, I refused to be a monkey to tech fashion. Now I can listen to it all on Pandora, free. Life is good...

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
