Re: throw away society

What a good idea, Melody.  We need to do the same.  We've got quite a
tape collection and that's mostly what we do for entertainment, esp.
now that my DH is pretty immobile.  I've been dreading the day when
the current VCR dies and I find I can't get one again.  

Annoys me no end that they are phasing out something that works
perfectly well - and which, I am sure, a lot of people have invested
quite a goodly sum in tapes to run on it - just because there is a
"new" technology.  Well, whoopee!  I don't need or want that new
technology now and doubt I'll find it something I can't live without
in future unless I'm forced in that direction.  Guess I'm just
showing my age...gettin' to be a real old fuddy-duddy:-)
