How Old is Grandpa? Can you Guess?

The age might just take you by surprise.  It did me. 

Stay with this -- the answer is at the end.  It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events.
The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at
schools, the computer age, and just things in general..

The Grandfather replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:

*       television

*       penicillin

*       polio shots

*       frozen foods

*       Xerox

*       contact lenses

*       Frisbees and

*       the pill

There were no:

*       credit cards

*       laser beams or

*       ball-point pens

Man had not invented:

*       pantyhose

*       air conditioners

*       dishwashers

*       clothes dryers

*       and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and

*      man hadn't yet walked on the moon


Your Grandmother and I got married first, .. ... ... and then lived
together..  


Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, "Sir".
And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title,
"Sir."

We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare centers,
and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common
sense.  

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand
up and take responsibility for our actions.

Living in this country was a privilege; serving this country was an even
bigger privilege..

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.  

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.  

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze
started.  

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and
weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt,
or guys wearing earrings.  

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches on our
radios.  

And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy
Dorsey.  

If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan ' on it, it was junk  

The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam...  

Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10
cents.

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a
nickel.

And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough
stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, . .. . but who could afford one?
Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.  

In my day:

*      "grass" was mowed,

*      "coke" was a cold drink,

*      "pot" was something your mother cooked in and

*      "rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.

*      "Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,

*      " chip" meant a piece of wood,

*      "hardware" was found in a hardware store and

*     "software" wasn't even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a
husband to have a baby.

No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation
gap. and how old do you think I am?

I bet you have this old man in mind....you are in for a shock!

Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the
same time.

 Are you ready ?????

This man would be only 59 years old. 
Drag and drop me

It also offers optimum exposures when you're shooting backlit with the help of HDR mode. However, if you face a data loss situation, in absence of a valid backup, no need to worry. The D7000 just may be the best performing APS-C format camera in the market today.

If you want to meditate with your Black - Berry using the resources already installed on the phone, there
are a variety of ways you can do this:. The Black - Berry Playbook price
has not yet been revealed but it is thought that it could be
up to £100 cheaper than the equivalent i - Pad model, which will make it a very attractive proposition indeed once
the Black - Berry Playbook release date arrives.

Apple products include the Iphones, Ipads and Ipods all at
competitive prices.

Since the Samsung Galaxy N7000's screen is large, it makes maneuvering from one application to another very easy and convenient. Most of the Android smart phones come with their own customized ring tones which can be set as ring tones and other tones but now in this article lets learn about something with which you can set the customized Alarm Ring tones to android devices very easily. The color display of the phone is simply awesome and comes with screen of 4 inches.

First off I would like to say superb blog!

I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting
my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but
it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.

Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!
