    Probably just before my time. I remembered my Grandmother talking about them in Philadelphia in the early 1940's.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I remember actually eating in one with my dad in Manhattan when I was a young child in the 60's

    Archery season opened here on the first, rifles on the 10th. We're so over-run with deer you can take three, two does. No wild hogs, though.
    The deer will be easy. I live in the woods up near the top of a ridge and they walk thru the yard twice a day. Just need to be waiting for them. The hogs will be fun this year, we are scouting a new area that should allow us to shoot from an elevated position and some pretty good distance.

    Yup, my mom used to go in with her girlfriends into Manhattan in the 50 and eat the automats and she took me to one as a little girl in the 60s.

    Ok. Sounds good.

    It's changing every year so I see it as silly to make the claim you did like it's set in stone. It's like people that said the car would never replace horse-drawn carriages. New technology takes time to be widely adopted.
    self checkouts have been around for a while and they have plenty of disadvantages such as not being able to stop theft that they will have make major jumps in technology before you will see more than just a few at your local store

    RFIDs will make an interesting change to shopping in the future. The tech has not be adopted yet, but it would make checking out a very pleasant experience. It would eliminate cashiers, but that is another story.

    Here is the first link I came up with if you are unaware of RFIDs. http://www.rfidarena.com/2013/4/11/g...igm-shift.aspx

    Sure it does there are things a cashier can do more efficiently than a machine and that's why there are more cashiers than machines it's that simple

    Couple days ago I left the garden gate open and a doe and last years fawn went in and wiped out our tomatoes. I don't have a tag and I'm too close to the road so had to chase them out and the young one got messed up in the wire mesh and I had to carry her out.
    Picked a tick off my neck at the hair line later, and I've been reading up on Lyme disease ever since!
    Never hunted hogs. Do you bait them?
